WARNING... I suggest checking on inventory with FreedomPop before delivering for more insight. Devices are on back order still but they are filling them in order and they do seem to be going out. Ordered mine June 15th and got mine in about 3.5 weeks. They comped me 1GB extra and $10 acct credit balance are being comped for Overdrives (not pros) that are still back ordered

Just an FYI: Please note that these are refurbished/used (scratched but working) devices.
Q: Does anyone want to share their emails so we can all connect and get more MB usage? Is that allowed?
A: See post for FreedomPop Friends: https://slickdeals.net/f/5276432-FreedomPop-Friends?v=1#post_message_53620526
B: See video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ARO5fXTCo0


Your subscription begins when you click Activate. It will ship 27 days after you buy it, but that is your "free" month!- FreedomPop has stated several times in the later part of the thread and on their blog that trials are being extended and "Plan period will start after the shipping date (not the purchase date)."

They maybe clearing these out to make way for LTE enabled devices that are coming later this year:

This deal is best for those who will use ONLY 4G, and will keep their usage between 5 and 500 MB/month.
-If you want to use 4G only, you can downgrade to the 500MB/month plan (free if you use between 5MB and 500 MB/month, $0.99 as a maintenance fee if you use less than 5MB/month).- Maintenance fee has been discontinued, see below "Why why i charged .99 cents"
-If you want to be able to use 3G and 4G, or only 3G, you need to pay for a plan that starts at $3.99 for 500MB/month.

Defective Chargers: Some batteries/ chargers have been reported as defective or not working. Email or pm them to get a Free replacement + Free shipping of replacement.


FAQs

Is data rounded to the nearest megabyte?
Data usage is never estimated when calculating for pay as you go or plan data charges. FreedomPop calculates to the byte, breaks down data usage into 15 minute increments and only charges for actual data used. Data is however rounded on our website's user account pages for easier data monitoring and tracking purposes for our subscribers.


Why was I charged $0.99?
**UPDATE: This fee was discontinued on 6/13/13 according to their blog post [freedompop.com].**
In order to keep our service free, we must offset costs charged to us by our wireless network carrier partners. It is a way for us to provide free data on a daily basis to all active users of our service, which averages over 500,000MBs daily. To prevent this nominal fee, all you need to do is log onto your device and use 5MBs within each billing cycle.
Quote from FreedomPop View Post :
When a user uses less than 5MBs/ month, there can be a $0.99 cent fee to keep your account active. It is easily avoided though by either turning it on and checking a few emails. Another option is to "share data" with another friend and that will count towards "using 5MBs". However, if you absolutely don't think you can use the device each month, you can contact customer service and they can have it waived.
I don't want the service anymore, the device is also mine to keep, now how to I cancel this "free" service so I don't get charged $0.99?/month
Cancel the service. [freedompop.com]

Is there a restocking fee?
Handling and restocking fees will apply and depend on the condition of the returned device. We are charged a fee by our logistics partner to test the device and ensure it is still in working order. This fee is deducted at cost per our T&Cs and is nominal.


Can I bring my own device (BYOD) and use your services?
In order to take advantage of our services, you do have to purchase a FreedomPop device. All devices come with a 30 day return policy and a 90 day warranty. After the initial 30 days, your "Sierra Wireless Overdrive" device is yours to keep.


What happens after my free promotional trial plan is over?
At the beginning of your new billing cycle, the payment method on file will be charged for a new month on this data plan. If you do not wish to continue on this data plan, the plan can be downgraded by contacting our help desk at http://bit.ly/contactfp


What happens when I exceed my data limit?
Depending on if you are on our Free 500MB plan, or any paid plan your account will have additional funds added to your account when you're within 100MBs of your plans total monthly capacity data limit. Once funds are added to your credit account, you will be charged on a Pay As You Go basis. You can opt out of automatic top up service at any time, though you may experience interruption of your Internet service if limited funds remain in your credit account.
If you want to cap your data plan at 500MB (in case you are on that plan), you can disable automatic top up through your Account page under Billing Settings. This forfeits you 100 mb though, your data for the month will be capped at 400MB [freedompop.com]... Your service will be disabled as you approach your limit and when your cycle renews, you'll get a new 500MBs.

What happens to my remaining credit balance?
Any credit left in your account will stay in your account until it is used up; it doesn't expire and it will rollover to your next billing cycle


This is a 3G(Sprint cellular)/4G(WiMAX) device. Why do I only get 4G coverage?
The free data plan is only 4G (WiMAX). You can pay an additional $3.99/month to get 3G (Sprint) coverage but it is not mandatory.

**NOTE** THIS IS FOR THE OVERDRIVE, NOT THE OVERDRIVE PRO.
The Overdrive (non-Pro) is bigger, has a smaller screen, and flatter.
  • PRO: Up to 35% faster boot-up time
  • 45% larger screen
  • Smaller footprint than regular Overdrive
  • Same battery for both devices, but does anyone know if battery operating time is the same?
Overdrive 5 devices and Pro 8 devices connect to hotspot
Overdrive suppost A/B/G and Pro support wireless A/B/G/N

If you've been reading the various FreedomPop deals, they just got a shipment of devices this week. They SHOULD be sending them out next week. Also, if you really want to cancel, I'd just email them first about a refund before contacting your CC. Many people were able to get a refund before the item shipped.

I use their "contact us" support wizard here: http://www.freedompop.com/support_wizard.htm

Click "I didn't find what I'm looking for" then enter your info. Choose a category and keep clicking "I still need help" until you reach the end. Then you can send them email for help.

Got an email that my item is shipped. I also ordered Refurb overdrive for $15.99 - might cancel. I also have USB stick for $7. Should I cancel or keep all three?

Those who got it shipped - is it overdrive or pro?

I ordered overdrive on 05/30 for 28.98, and still no shipping.

I am wondering if they have started shipping out PRO devices already and those who ordered the regular overdrive are still waiting Frown
