Hey Guys,

As you know today is our launch for UNREAL Mobile, and I just wanted to take a second to cover some of the main details for everyone. Hopefully this will help with some of the confusion.

First, we do offer phones (2 Android and one iPhone) onsite and a bring your own phone program. Both available today.

Calls and texts are available over native Android/iOS talk/text apps. They do not go over the data network unless you happen to be in a poor cell coverage area and want to use the app to call over WiFi.

In regards to the app, Monkeybiz did describe the app well "it's for extra helpings". You'll be able to monitor and manage your account, as well as call and text over WiFi with the app. It's also what will allow you to use your UNREAL phone number over multiple devices.

There will be data rollover, bonuses for sticking around, and more free ways to earn additional high-speed data each month. All included.

For any additional questions feel free to send us a PM! These seem to be the big ones I've seen trending.

-Samantha

this should be a thumbs up, I was about to post it after reading up on it. Getting good feed back from prepaidnews and they know something about being cheap. https://www.prepaidphonenews.com/...month.html
BYOSD, ROLLOVER DATA and TETHER included. Very different from FP, NOT VOIP.

UNREAL Mobile, a spin-off from freemium MVNO FreedomPop, officially launched today. UNREAL offers plans starting at $10/month, all of which include unlimited voice, messaging and data, with varying amounts of high speed data. The $10 plan comes with 1 GB of high speed data. A plan with 2 GB is $15 and a 5 GB plan is available for $30/per month. If users go over their high speed data allotment, they get unlimited data at reduced speeds for the rest of the month, or they can change tp a plan with more data on demand. Unused high speed data can be rolled over or gifted to another user. Using your phone as a hotspot is supported. Service is on the Sprint network.
sounds like the Unreal app is just for extra helpings, UNREAL offers normal circuit switched cellular calls and carrier SMS and MMS messaging. A free UNREAL VPN, ad-blocking and VoIP over WiFi app app is included with every plan.

freedompop does have good deals. This one doesn't have the hidden charges from overages/top ups? because of the unlimited data? real cellular service without app? Good for them to spin it off to a new brand if it's true.

Wouldn't trust free vpn/adblocking which could just mean they are using analytics on you in an "anonymous" fashion.

haha, I thought of R+ but Sprint would never take Karl back after that mess. I would be concerned about marketing hook but it's too early to call. Read the fine print:

Regarding UNREAL Mobile's connection with FreedomPop, an UNREAL Mobile spokesperson told me that "UNREAL Mobile, while a spin-off, is a completely separate company with a different strategy that targets its own market segment. UNREAL has a different culture and a different approach to wireless service. The two companies will continue to operate separately."


from the comment section: "I understand that UNREAL may send me telemarketing calls & text messages via automatic telephone dialing system."

I do like their coverage map. It seems more accurate than the Sprint one. For Sprint they said I had 4GLTE where I live, but in reality it is mainly 3G. Their map clearly shows I only have 3G.

Looks great, even roll over data!

Just lacking roaming, but for $10, it's still great.
