Downgrading can be performed directly on your online account page or on your phone. By breaking free from your current phone carrier and switching to FreedomPop, you can save hundreds of dollars every year.

Why should I take advantage of the Extended Warranty?
The Extended Warranty will protect your device from mechanical breakdown and accidents. Extended Warranty includes the following:
--Covers internal parts that can fail after expiration of the manufacturer's warranty
--Protects against accidents of everyday life including cracks, spills, drops, or a dip in the pool
--Enjoy a fast and easy claims process 24/7
--Get a replacement device order processed within 24 hours after claim is approved
--Cancel coverage anytime
Does 3G access cost any money?
No, unlike our hotspot plans, there is no cost for nationwide 3G access. It is included as a part of the Free plan.
Can I do wireless tethering with the Unlimited Everything plan?
Wireless tethering is only allowed for the first 1GB while at 4G LTE speeds. Once speeds are limited to 3G (after the first 1GB), tethering is no longer allowed.
What if I need more data?
When you approach your monthly data limit, you have the option to either have your data service suspended for the remainder of the month, or continue usage on a pay-as-you-go basis. Each additional megabyte of data used beyond your original allotment will cost $0.02 per MB.
If I'm on the Free Plan, what happens if I need more Minutes and Texts?
When you reach your monthly limit of 200 Minutes and 500 Text Messages, your phone service will suspend itself. If you wish to have more Minutes and Texts, you would need to upgrade to a higher plan.
Can I port my existing number over to FreedomPop?
Yes, you can port your number during the activation process. Alternatively, you can choose a new FreedomPop phone number to use for the first couple months and then port your number over later.
Is there a non usage, or inactivity fee of $0.99?
No, it's a thing of the past. It was stopped altogether last year.
Can I exceed my data limit, even if it's set to suspend itself?
With automatic top-up disabled (found in the Billing Settings of your account), your data service will suspend itself when you're within 100MB of your data limit. Please note that there is a 3-hour delay in data reporting from Sprint's towers to our system, so there is a slight chance that you can exceed your limit if there is significant usage within that 3-hour window. If you're only browsing the web/reading articles, then you should be fine. However, if you're doing high data usage activities during that window (such as Netflix or large downloads), then there's a chance you can go over, since our system won't recognize that you're at your limit in time to suspend you.
What kind of coverage do I need? What network do you use?
The Motorola Photon Q requires a data connection in order to send/receive calls and texts messages. The data connection can including WiFi, 4G LTE, or 3G. To check out 4G LTE and 3G coverage, visit http://www.freedompop.
How do I cancel? Do you provide return shipping?
To cancel service, you'll need to contact our Support Team. We do ask you pay for return shipping. This may appear frugal on our part, but we'd rather push the boundaries on how much free minutes, texts, and data we give away each day.
Will different data connections affect call quality?
As with all phone services, call quality is entirely dependent on your coverage/proximity to your local cell towers. Call quality will be better when you're connected via either 4G LTE or WiFi, when comparing to 3G.
How about app updates?
The FreedomPop Development Team is constantly working to improve all aspects of our phone service, ranging from battery life to latency. As a result, we will release updates to our Messaging App that will increase the overall quality. In order to take advantage of these improvements, you would need to update the FreedomPop Messaging App in the Google Play Store.
What is FreedomPop Phone Premier service?
Premier is a bundle of our value-added services. With Premier active on your account, you'll get Visual Voicemail and monthly Data Rollover, along with our staple services of Usage Alerts, Security, and Premium Support. It's over a $20 value if you signed up for the services separately.
How do I get even more free data every month?
You can connect with other FreedomPop users through Freedom Friends (found on your account page) and earn up to an extra 500MB of extra data, every month for free! Check out this thread- http://slickdeals.net/f/5276432-freedompop-friends
