LTE Android phones now supported:
Samsung Victory
Galaxy S3
Galaxy S4

They also have a new plan:
"'FreedomPop on Thursday launched a new $20-a-month smartphone plan called Unlimited Everything for its new line of LTE phones. It comes with all-you-can eat voice and text and 1 GB of LTE data. Once that gigabyte of 4G data is used up, speeds are throttled back to 3G levels for the remainder of the billing period."

They also support iPhone 4, 4s, and 5.

You get what you pay for. I only get about 3mpbs at full bars LTE in my area. It is just horrible for me.

This is on the iphone 5s, I got a great deal on it but its just freedompop wont support the 5s or else i would be all over it. Right now i am on that $25 framily plan...which with tax brings it up to $35

Plus freedompop is using its own firmware which is a battery drain. Good luck making/receiving calls for 5 mins and then having your battery drained completely. I still use it plugged into my laptop though. Can't beat the $10/mo plan with $2.95 for visual voicemail.

You can also buy the phone and then go into your account later and change it to the free plan if you so desire.

Seriously thinking of getting one just for backup and tethering when I'm on the road or anywhhere else without wifi. Also a CL number so I dont have to deal with all that on my main number Big Grin

That's not what "you get what you pay for" means. I get 9 Mbps on WiMAX in my area.

I tried to activate the sprint galaxy victory many people for for free several months ago on freedompops free plan But it said the phone isn't supported. Called them and they said they are fixing a bug in their system which isn't allowing many galaxy victory s. Anyone else get it to work?

Would consider giving Sprint a try if this plan didn't require the stupid Freedom Pop app for calls / texts.

Give me native iPhone support and I'll consider switching. Until then, I'll keep suffering through the painful Verizon 3G speeds I get currently (about 0.5mb up / 0.25mb down)

Good luck with these scam artists. I signed up a few days ago using their site and it charged me $20 and never activated my phone. I called their tech support whom told me to activate again and hung up on me. I submitted a help ticket to which the response was to activate again for another $20 and try a new email address. Has anyone actually gotten their service to work? I'm going to be lodging a complaint with the FCC.

If you have a sprint phone I would recommend RingPlus for a cost effective plan.

I've used Boost, Virgin Mobile and Freedompop. The call quality on the FreedomPop VoIP blows chunks aka it's really laggy/choppy even over WiFi.

I tried to BYOD my Galaxy Victory to FP yesterday and it rejected my IMEI saying it wasn't allowed to be brought over. Has anyone else tried?

It's on Ring Plus right now. I don't really use the minutes or texting, I just want the 500MB of data.

Wait..you only get 3Mbps on LTE natively on Sprint? My Galaxy Victory used to be able to pull in 7-10Mbps down on Sprint LTE at my home, but now it won't pass 4Mbps. I've tried several areas and it always caps out around 4Mbps. I thought it was because they were capping the speeds on MVNOs, but if you're only getting ~3Mbps as well on postpaid service...uh-oh.

Doesn't the phone need to be freed up from Ringplus first before you can sign up on FP?
