What is the deal?
A Samsung Galaxy S5 for $279.99.

What happens after I purchase this phone?
You can activate on FreedomPop by going to www.freedompop.com/activate [freedompop.com]. When activating, you'll be getting a one-month free trial of the Unlimited Talk & Text plus 1GB of LTE data. This plan normally costs $19.99/month.

You are always welcome to subscribe to 100% Free Plan, which consists of 200 Voice Minutes, 500 Text Messages, and 500MB of 4G LTE/3G data.

What networks does FreedomPop use?
The Galaxy S5 is able to connect to Sprint's 4G LTE and 3G networks. It can also connect via WiFi.

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.

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.

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

Have a Billing Issue?
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.

Customer Support:
Email is probably the best way to reach us (support@freedompop.com) or you can go to our Community Forum (http://forums.freedompop.com). If you absolutely must speak to us, you can call (888) 743-8107 (M-F 9am-5pm PDT). You can also PM us!

Not on LTE, but if your area still has HSPA/UMTS it should work if you can unlock it

LTE: Band 25/26/41; CDMA 1x/EVDO Rev.A: 800/1900MHz; HSPA+/UMTS: 850/900/1900/2100MHz; GSM: 850/900/1800/1900MHz

I am not 100 percent sure, but even if it was unlocked I believe you are only limited to Sprint and Sprint's MVNO if you want LTE speed. Unsure about 3G and different carriers.

Sadly no. I believe they use Sprint towers, if someone will confirm.

i did a half-assed search, but can I use this phone with a Sprint Account? If not, thinking of just carrying a second phone or just switching all together.

Typically no. With Sprint's MVNO resellers, Sprint will keep a list of the phones they sell and prevent them from being registered directly with Sprint. Can't really get away from it because with CDMA there is no sim, it is just the IMEI of the phone.

With some MVNO's they allow the reverse, using a Sprint branded phone on the MVNO, but not the MVNO phone on Sprint.
