What's the deal?

Our Black Friday deal exclusively available at Target includes a 4G LTE 3-in-1 Sim Card Kit for only $0.99 and more awesome FreedomPop devices at a super low price!


What about the Basic Plan?
We will always offer our basic plan. Downgrade directly from your FreedomPop account page anytime once your device ships and your service is activated.

Please Note! When downgrading to the basic plan, an account balance of $2 is required to protect from fraud and leakage, as data usage can be delayed up to 3 hours. There is a pop-up alert before to confirm a $10 charge to add credit into your account. Downgrade is not complete until the pop-up is accepted.
Learn more here - https://support.freedompop.com/ap...#downgrade

After downgrading to our basic plan, a $0.01 charge can be applied, please refer to our Service Plans Terms agreement [freedompop.com] under "Active and Suspended Broadband and Phone Service".

What networks does it use?

The Hotspot and LTE Smartphone devices in this deal are able to connect to Sprint's 4G LTE and 3G networks. It can also connect via WiFi. To check out 4G LTE and 3G coverage, visit http://www.freedompop.com/coverage3g4g. Be sure to select the 4G LTE and 3G boxes. FreedomPop uses VoIP, so you will need to have a data connection in order to make calls & texts.

All our 4G LTE GSM Sim Deals work off a TOP US GSM Provider to provide our users with Nationwide 4G LTE. If you aren't sure or want to know more, please feel free to PM us.

Will I be able to keep my current FreedomPop number?
Yes! With this upgraded LTE SIM account you will first need to choose a new number and if desired to transfer over your number on an active FreedomPop account please contact us here for Admin assistance via PM or visit our Community Forums with your transfer requests.

Will I be able to port in my phone number from another carrier?
Yes! You will first need to choose a new number and if desired to port in a phone number from another carrier please refer to the following support article: https://support.freedompop.com/ap...e%20number
Please Note: There is a $9.99 fee to port in a number.

Why was I charged $0.01?
We strive to offer a low cost mobile phone alternative to larger carriers. After downgrading to our basic plan, a $0.01 charge can be applied, please refer to our Service Plans Terms agreement [freedompop.com] under "Active and Suspended Broadband and Phone Service".

How do I earn extra data? (Freedom Friends)

You can earn additional free data each month by connecting with friends on FreedomPop! You'll earn 50MB of additional data for every friend that joins our service per month, up to a maximum of 500 MBs per month. Both your account and your friends account must be active. If either account is dormant, sharing data will not work.

You can also share data between friend accounts (a maximum of 500 MBs, and 100 MBs with each friend). The account sharing data must be an active one. If the account is inactive it cannot share data with any friends and data cannot be requested of that account.

Please Note: If you have already received 500MBs of data -- either from the automatic Freedom Friends function that gives you 50MBs per friend or from data that has been shared with you -- you will not be able to accumulate more data from Friends. Please refer to the following support article for more information regarding Freedom Friends: https://support.freedompop.com/ap...86/kw/data

Have an Account or 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.

How do I cancel my subscription?

You can cancel your subscription by logging into your account with your email and password. If you have multiple Phone, SIMs or Hotspots under the same email account, make sure you are logged into the correct device that you want to cancel. Please refer to this support article for more information: https://support.freedompop.com/ap...cel#online

This is a racket. There is no way you can avoid getting charged 7.99. There is no free basic phone service here. Their racket cost me 500 dollars by overdrawing an account and incurring charges..

$10 minimum now to downgrade. What a perfect timing to increase fee 2 days before black Friday.

And how much is activation fee if you buy this SIM kit from Target??

The $10 charge is a credit to your account and as stated in our terms it is to protect from fraud or leakage due to a possible 3 hour delay in actual data usage. When you purchase the SIM kit from Target, the activation fee will be $0.99

If fraud how are we responsible for that....and leakage...why not just bill us afterwards?

And why the change from $5 to $10?

So they can make more. That means they can take your $10 now. I downgraded my 4th sim after ordering it but realizing they charge $10, I asked for a refund. They said I had to refuse the package. What do they even mean by this? Now they won't respond to my pms. Awful company. Probably not ordering another sim from them

These frauds kept charging $0.01 as 'maintenance fee' on each of my cards, until I deleted the account entirely. Stay away.

Yeah what is up with that. I just came here to inquire. I'm getting .01 charged to my credit cards last few months. Annoying AF since I don't use those cards anymore.
