FreedomPop 5GB+Unlimited Talk/Text $150/yr $13

It's been cheaper, but right now it's a good spot between Mint's $15 3GB and $20 8 GB plan and cheaper than either at $13/month for 5GB (at the 12 month bulk price of $149.99).

Personally I'll be going with Visible's $25 unlimited everything party pay plan (since I'm dropping my ISP and need the unlimited hotspot). Venn also has a good deal right now at $20 unlimited everything+50GB hotspot.

I would have taken this FreedomPop deal though if I was still paying my ISP because I use about 5GB/month on my phone and it seems to be the cheapest for that amount.
Not the best deal around, but I'm sure someone else's free year of Sprint is ending and is in the same boat.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!

They ripped me off
I never did get the phone they sold me to work after several dozen hours with incompetent Philipine "tech support".
They refused to give me a refund, because it was past 7 days. But I spend several hours PER day trying to get it to work.
The non functional dates still counted as "days or ownership"

I never get the 1 cent charges. What I do is make at least 5 calls of longer than 1 minute and use around 50mb data, a month. I don't know if that would solve your issue but it works for me.
I guess I just figure $0.12 a year at most (on top of the $5 maybe that I paid for the SIM card) isn't worth fretting over. I can go months without needing my FP account, but occasionally having an AT&T MVNO and a bit of data is really useful.

I also had a horrible experience with them.

How is Freedompop still alive? They dropped all of my devices and forced me to transfer to Ting.

Same question as the poster above. My only previous experience with Freedompop was several years ago when it was a free service and you had to use the app. Does this work like a normal phone SIM now? And if so, any idea what network it is running on?

Calling is via VoIP only, so you have to use some VoIP app to make calls-- but not necessarily the FreedomPop app. (Other options might incliude Google Voice, TextNow, etc.)
The SIMs run on the AT&T network.

FreedomPop dropped me too, sent me to ting.

Now the free tier says 200mb. .

Are there any companies out there that provide 500mb or more for free
?

I don't need a phone service just data. Phone is a bonus though

People who drop their ISP and use mobile hotspot are the worst. You ruin unlimited for everyone.
10 gigs is $100 via ting is mobile hotspot even an option to be an isp replacer??

Hi @FreedomPop
I have use the freedomPop LTE sim with the FreedomPop Basic free plan since 2016.
Few days ago when I log into my account it was still OK and my LTE sim still working.
but today when I log in to my account, everything is gone and my LTE sim is not working.
Could you please help me to fix my account? I still have $5 top-up in this account.

Thank you very Much!
