Hybrid carrier FreedomPop adds the Samsung Galaxy S II and a $5 unlimited talk and text plan
You might remember hybrid carrier FreedomPop, That's the company that uses a combination of Wi-Fi and Sprint's 3G/4G signal to offer low-priced data. Thanks to the use of Wi-Fi, it is offering an unlimited talk and text service for the ridiculously low price of $4.58 a month. The company also is continuing with its free service which means that you can get 200 voice minutes, 500 texts and 500MB of data each month for free.

The company also announced its highest quality smartphone to date, a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S II, for $169. While we do applaud the effort made by FreedomPop to keep prices low, we do have to shake our heads at a press release that announces that the carrier is  "giving customers access to the latest smartphones". The Samsung Galaxy S II is nearly three years old. But FreedomPop did add in its release that high-end LTE models are coming.


Since starting service last October, FreedomPop has signed up nearly half a million people to its beta invite list. The company recently debuted a BYOD plan for those who want to use their own handset.
