To add to what Nausicaa said, you can do these things to protect against unwanted charges:

1) Sign up with a prepaid credit card
2) After purchase, turn off automatic refills (menus: Billing-Billing Settings-Automatice Top-off = "No". To protect you and FP, once you select this, FP will shut off your service for the remainder of the month 100mb before you hit your cap, per their system. I bolded "per their system", because they get usage data from Sprint up to 3 hours after you use it. So it is possible to exceed the cap before you or FP know it, at which point FP will shut off your service until you pay for the usage above your cap, regardless of whether the next month's allotment would have brought it to zero.
3) After purchase, go to menu: My Account-Services and make sure that the info box at the top of the page starts with: "You have not signed up for any services yet. " If you have signed up for services, you can remove most from this same page. If you have trouble, email or call Support
4) Since you are registering this device through the "Activate My Device" link on the FP website, you will have the option to select the Free Plan right out of the gate. Go ahead and do this now, rather than selecting the free 1 month @ x GBs, as otherwise you'll have to call FP's Support line to get it downgraded back to Free. If you take the free GB's for one month, you will have to call support to downgrade to free at some point in the month. If you're not sure what you signed up for, you can go to menu: My Account-Plans, and make certain that in the far left box, where it says "My Plan", that it reads "Free 500mb" at some point during the free month.

As an aside, you can get another 500mb by "friending" 10 other FP users. There is a thread on here that provides a link to a spreadsheet where names get added, so friending will happen quickly and easily.

I know it sounds like a lot to do, but for me it was worth it. I've bought 5 FP devices for myself, family, and friends over the past 90 days or so, and have been quite pleased. I live in a major metro area, so service has been solid on 4g for me. YMMV
good advice!

this is for sprints wimax 4g right? what will happen once sprit switches to lte and phases out wimax? can the device still handle 4g lte?
Looking for the same answer,

Will sprint phase out the Wimax after moving to LTE? if so, when?

I'm not the FP rep, but I had this same question, and the paraphrased answer is that Sprint Wimax is targeted to be retired in 2015, which gives FP some time to determine what a good plan is for transitioning off of Wimax and onto another technology, most likely LTE. They offer the assurance that they will come up with something for happy customers.

What this means to me is that, for the price of this device, I can expect free internet service for somewhere between 3-24 months, for the price of each device. If I get lucky and it is on the longer end of that span of time, it was a great deal. If it's more to the shorter span of that time, it wasn't much of a deal at all, but not a waste of money. I'm betting that the reality will be somewhere closer to the middle, and that I'll get a year or so out of it. That makes it a good deal to me.

The FP rep can correct me if I misstated anything.

At 7:15 am EST the Newegg deal is dead; the Amazon match is live.
Buying directly on Freedom Pop is $35 plus $7 shipping (total $42), but you get a bonus of 1 GB of data that should carry over until you use it, quoted as a $20 "value".

We believe that the reviews that were on newegg where more geared towards the Overdrive Pro. We don't offer battery replacement on these devices, but they come with a 90 day warranty and are tested by us at our facilities. They have a great battery life.

That's a pretty spot on assessment. We haven't ironed out all the details but we're working on something Wink
