What is the deal?
An iPhone 5 for $199.99. You'll be getting a one-month free trial of the Unlimited Everything Plan. That's unlimited talk, text, and data. The first 1GB of data will be at 4G LTE speeds and all subsequent data will be at 3G speeds. The Unlimited Everything Plan normally costs $19.99/month.

You are always welcome to downgrade to the 100% Free Plan, which consists of 200 Voice Minutes, 500 Text Messages, and 500MB of 4G LTE/3G data. Downgrading can be performed directly on your online account page or on your phone.

What networks does it use?
The iPhone 5 is able to connect to Sprint's 4G LTE and 3G networks. It can also connect via WiFi.

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.

What if I need more data while on the Free Plan?
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. There is a one-time cost of $9.99 to Port your number.

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 iPhone 5 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.com/coverage3g4g. Be sure to select the 4G LTE and 3G boxes. Connecting to any local WiFi network works too!

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 Apple Store.

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


How long for shipping?
Estimated shipping time-frame is 2-3 weeks. As the deal gets more popular, shipping times may increase.

We encourage all our users to come to us first to see if we can explain any charge or resolve any billing issue before further escalation.

good luck getting them to ship your phone! still waiting on my phone after two months.
Looks like they are waiting to buy one cheaper before reselling to you. Couple of questions:
a) Did they charge you back in January?
b) Can you cancel while you are waiting?

CAUTION: I still periodically get billed even though I have a very basic FREE service for a 4G modem for over 6 mos.

I'm also still waiting on my order since January. The fact that it will take 2 months to get the phone will prevent it from hitting FP. Otherwise may have been an FP deal since it's an iPhone.

The majority of the Photon Q phones from the January promo have shipped, but unfortunately there are a handful that have not gone out yet. We've had to do some QA checks and re-kitting in order to make sure the phones are fully ready for usage. Very sorry that you're a part of the unlucky bunch -- they should be going out soon.

The iPhones in this deal are in stock and ready for shipment.

I sent you a message regarding my new Galaxy Note 2 on Friday and haven't received a response, could I please get a reply that my issue is being worked on? Messaging App is in an endless activation loop - says it is activated and then forces me to activate again. Thanks.

Edit - thanks for fixing the issue!

I'll be interested to see once these ship, what the quality is like on them.

Freedompop phones are notorious for bad batteries, and while you can change out a battery on an iPhone, its not the most straight forward.

Getting in on the ZTE Force $25 dollar deal, I'll say I'm happy (after I bought an OEM battery replacement... the one it shipped with was a cheap replacement). Already went through the first month, no surprises. Data speeds are OK but what do you want for free.

So all in all, I'm curious as to how people like the voice service when an iPhone is your phone, versus random Android phones.

i am part of that unlucky bunch, but i hope those wont be total defects like my ZTE Force. eats data for just being on, cannot receive text, nor get on google play without clearing cache and to receive text for an hour i need to pop out battery before powering.
hope the photon q will behave better.

"Unlucky bunch" -- what a load of BS. There have been people on the forums who ordered the same phone after me and received their phones already

Is Freedompop (Sprint) IPhone 5 GSM portion unlocked or can be unlocked like Verizon IPhone 5?

the main issue with fp devices tends to be their age and how lte drains their batteries. iphone 5's have that issue, but it's nowhere near as bad as any android device. also, with an iphone, you can use pretty much every alternative comms app in existence, so fp's horrible call quality can be entirely circumvented. if you don't wanna hunt for an eligible ip5 on ebay i think this is a good deal.

I'm also waiting on mine. Been "kitting" since forever. What's the expected shipping month?
