What networks does it use?

-The device is 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.

Have your Freedom Friends Program changed(Freedom Friends)

*We're sorry to say, but we've been subject to targeted abuse with users leveraging multiple accounts to aggregate additional free data. We have tried to battle the abuse by adding conditions around accounts with no data usage over several months, but unfortunately we have been forced to limit the friends sharing program.

You can now earn 5MB of additional data for every friend that joins our service per month, up to a maximum of 50MBs per month. Both your account and your friends account must be active. If either account has no data usage or activity, sharing data will not work.

How do I earn free data every month

You can earn additional free data each month by connecting with friends on FreedomPop! You'll earn 5MB of additional data for every friend that joins our service per month, up to a maximum of 50 MBs per month. Both your account and your friends account must be active. If either account has no data usage or activity, sharing data will not work.

You can also share data between friend accounts (a maximum of 50 MBs, and 5 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 50MBs of data -- either from the automatic Freedom Friends function that gives you 5MBs per friend or from data that has been shared with you-you will not be able to accumulate more data from Friends. https://support.freedompop.com/ap.../a_id/2186

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

The 500MB is better than my AT&T LTE basic 250MB.

Chances are the AT&T 250MB would last a lot longer than the 500 MB you get from Freedompop. If data is turned on on your Freedompop phone it will gobble data even if you aren't using it. Even with updates turned off except for when connected to WIFI, a Freedompop phone will use data anyway even if it just sits on a desk. This doesn't happen with other phone companies. When complaining to Freedompop about unexplained loss of data, they just tell you there is an ap running on your phone using the data.
Total BS.
The phone (any with the company) is mostly useless except for texting

Fwiw, when you say you see extra usage, are you talking about what the phone says it's using? Or what is reported in your account(on the website)? Since it uses data for phone/text, the phone settings will show usage, but that shouldn't count towards the data usage on your account.

On the website shows your usage. It goes away really fast for no reason

$15 to downgrade to free... Why not just be honest and charge $35 up front instead of 20 and then 15 more? The max of 50MB from friends/family is a shame..while I don't use freedompop currently, when I did, I always was able to browse/email) as much as I wanted (no movies, obviously) and stay within 800-900... I'm not sure that freedom pop is the cheapest in that range anymore...
