Due to my recent experience with Freedompop, I am NO LONGER RECOMMENDING this company. Mad

The company started off with potential but after many sleazy experiences I can definitively say that they are acting in bad faith and not to be trusted.
Please do your own due diligence but my $0.02 is certainly,
STAY AWAY! DO NOT TRY.



P.S.- Early adopters who deposited should probably contact them about a refund. They screwed us. http://slickdeals.net/f/5276432-freedompop-friends?v=1&p=79497123#post79497123

I got my 50 friends in about 48 hours. Thanks everyone. I now have 140 friends in about 2 weeks. I know only the first 50 help me, but I might be helping 140 others earn 10MB each, so I will continue to accept friends whenever I login to the freedompop web page.

Also, it can't hurt to have a few spare friends in case some drop the service.

The google doc this forum is about now has 354 people in it. Some have bad email addresses and some are duplicates. I guess some people think they will get friends twice as fast if they are listed twice? Smilie It would be nice is someone could delete the bad email addresses. I would if I knew how.

Here are the bad records I know of:

11/12/2012 22:10:47,Amit,Jain,cal_a

I'm doing the same. Would be nice if we could tell who needs extra data so we could share at the end of our billing month.

I have a dupe in there because I didn't understand how the yahoo import thing worked. I put in my yahoo email (jasoncarr2000@) and later realized I was supposed to put in my FP email. Duurrrrrrr. Says I have no auth to get into the google-hosted doc, so perhaps someone could whack the entry with jasoncarr2000 in it.

Just a note to say thanks. With all the talk of FreedomPop rounding up and the worry that I might connect and have some program automatically update, draining my mb's, it is a relief to have an extra 500MB "cushion". The simple instructions really worked. 50 new friends in about 24 hours, amazing. Now I just keep "confirming" for folks just arriving, couldn't be easier!

Carrottopper: Just follow the instructions in the second post on the first page ("Easy Import") and you'll be all set. It's still working amazingly well!

How exactly is everyone counting how many friends they have? I can't seem to find that information on the website. I'm trying to add and get as many friends added as I can.

Dunno. I was wondering the same thing. I'd guess I have ~80 but I'm unwilling to count them all manually.

Yeah, I just copied and pasted all of my friends into a spreadsheet, counted how many rows one friend took on the spreadsheet, and divided the total number of rows by that number. I have around 80 as well. I'm jealous of everyone who has hundreds of friends because of the larger safety net they have in case people cancel.

I copy and paste the list into Notepad with View/StatusBar enabled (it shows a line count.)

Fortunately, the source text is formatted quite nicely when issuing the copy command.

Does the text paste for you as one friend per line? When I paste mine, everything from a single friend comes out on a different line (name, email address, and other text), so I can't just count the number of lines.

That's weird.. it comes out as one line for me.

Chrome on Windows 7.

Ah, there we go, Chrome was the key. I mainly use Chrome but I have javascript issues with it so I was logging into the FP website with IE. Thanks for the tip. I'm up to 96 friends now after a week. I'm not sure if I missed the gravy train since everyone before me seems to have been able to get hundreds of friends within a few days.
