FreedomPop brings free mobile service to the masses
In honor of its first anniversary, hybrid carrier FreedomPop is offering free mobile phone service for life. Every month, 500MB of data, 500 text messages and 200 minutes of calls will be available at no charge. Customers can upgrade to unlimited voice and unlimited texting for $10.99 a month which is a savings of 80% to 90% from other name brand carriers, saving consumers as much as $1000 a year.

The service will be available on FreedomPop's HTC Evo Design smartphone, which will be available for $99. That already is a 65% discount. Freedom Pop says that it will offer customers more choices later this year with a selection of popular Android models. Stephen Stokols, FreedomPop's CEO and co-founder, said that a consumer paying $1500 a year for a mobile service can save up to $1000 a year for the same plan with his service.

FreedomPop offers free 4G data through hotspots and fills in the gaps using Sprint's network. Earlier this year the company started using 4G service from Clearwire and added Sprint's pipeline in April.
