Please see the Wiki of for ADDITIONAL info on ANOTHER deal that also offers minutes and texts (through a FreedomPop app).
This deal offers data only.

Be sure to "Request desktop site" if you do not see properly formatted bullet items.

Possible charges - WARNING!
  • If you do not downgrade/deactivate BOTH the Trial Plan AND Trial Service, one month after your order is shipped, you will start to be charged.
    • See "Plan AND Service" below.
  • Beware that downgrade of the Trial Plan is effective retroactively back to the beginning of the current plan period.
    • So you actually have to pay if you "try" what the Trial Plan provides for.
  • Also see "Automatic Top-up, Credit balance" below for possible $15 or $5 charges.
  • How to contact FreedomPop, for example if you get other unexpected charges:

Global SIM Kit
  • Includes a nano-SIM card, with micro and mini/standard adapters. []
  • The nano-SIM card is a UK SIM that supports roaming in countries including the US.
  • Supported countries:
    • For a map and list of names, see (simply scroll down).
    • Current support: the US, most of Europe. But see "User experiences" below about Hungary.
    • No support: Canada, Japan.
  • In the US, roaming is supported on both AT&T and T-Mobile's 3G networks.
    • See "User experiences" below for speedtest results.
  • Your IP address will be based in the UK.
  • If you use Google Hangouts (with Hangouts Dialer), you must prefix a 10-digit US number with 001 or +1 (long press "0" for "+"), because Hangouts will think local calls are for the UK.

  • You are recommended to create a new account (so be sure to "Log Out" first if already signed in):
    • A new device under an existing account CANNOT be another "friend" nor "share" data (see below).
    • "Automatic Top-up" is now enabled for every new device anyway (for a while it could be disabled once per account).
  • For a new account, you will enter an e-mail ONCE on the first page and NOT see it again. Make sure it is entered correctly.
  • Credit card:
  • If you cannot sign up, try to:
    • Clear browser cache, especially if you get UK site.
    • Create a new account with a new e-mail.
    • Use a credit or debit card with a registered address, instead of a gift or prepaid card.
    • Sign up from a different IP address, and not use VPN.
  • For a new account, you will receive a "Welcome to FreedomPop" e-mail with a random initial password right after sign-up.
  • If you still decided to add to a new device to an existing account, you can access the new device from a menu on the top right corner.
  • Check order status at (fulfillment may take a long time).
  • Will ship from Plainfield, Indiana via FedEx SmartPost (delivery by USPS).

Getting wireless service
Plan AND Service
Automatic Top-up, Credit balance
  • If you keep "Automatic Top-up" enabled by default:
    • When your remaining total allotment becomes 100MB or less, you will be charged $15 if your credit balance is less than $2. The $15 is added to your credit balance.
  • If you disable "Automatic Top-up" (under BILLING > Billing Settings):
    • You will be charged $5 (a one-time fee) as soon as you hit "OK". The $5 is added to your credit balance.
    • Before your credit balance drops to $0, you can use up your full total allotment, and then overage charge applies.
    • After your credit balance drops to $0 (due to overage charges), when your remaining total allotment is 100MB or less, your service will be suspended until the next plan period.
    • To un-suspended your service before the next plan period, you can "Add Credit".
    • See for further explanation.
  • Credit balance becomes inactive after 30 days (or 90 days []?), but can be reactivated under BILLING > Overview > Credit Balance > Click here to Reactivate [].

Friend, Sharing, etc. for more total allotment
  • Thread on adding "friends":
    • Make sure to use "Invite by Email Address" (below Gmail icon).
    • Beware that "Invite your email contacts" will send e-mail to all your contacts.
  • "Friend":
  • "Sharing":
    • An account can give/"share" up to 100MB to another account, but only once for the other account in a plan period, after they become "friends" with each other.
      • For example, after account 1 gives 20MB to account 2, account 1 cannot give more data to account 2 in account 1's same plan period, even though 20MB is less than 100MB. Account 1 can give to account 2 again in account 1's next plan period, even if by then account 2 is still in account 2's same plan period.
    • An account can receive or give up to a total of 500MB of data, but sharing resets, every plan period.
    • There have been conflicting reports when there are multiple devices. The up to 100MB is:
  • Example of two accounts:
    • Account 1 total allotment: 200MB Free Basic + 50MB "friend" with account 2 + 100MB received from account 2 through "sharing" = 350MB
    • Account 2 total allotment: 200MB Free Basic + 50MB "friend" with account 1 - 100MB given to account 1 through "sharing" = 150MB
  • Additionally:

Data only - does that mean there is no chance to add the phone service onto this one? It seems the previous offer also included minutes and texts that were not counted toward your data allotment.

Not as nice a price as the last deal when in stock (I think it was 99 cents?). But a nice deal on an international SIM. With freedompop friends and data sharing easily setup close to 1GB data/month.

Don't forget to downgrade!

Caution. I had an LG P769 TMobile branded. Unlocked it and it still won't work with FreedomPOP. Make sure your phone will work.

With my current fp phones, I hated the voice and messages latencies. I have been using hangout for calls and whatsapp for message anyway.
