This doesn't look like much of a deal.

Up to 10 lines sharing 1 GB of data? A $5 fee per line? You'd be better off signing up for separate free accounts, no?

Is the $5/line on top of the monthly charge? So two lines at 2GB/month would be ($14.99+$5)*2 = $39.98?

You also have to buy phones at high prices from FP. They're Sprint phones, so this deal is on Sprint network.

Yep, $5/line is a line access charge, and goes on top of whatever plan you choose.

It would probably be worth it if FP threw in unlimited Premium Voice. But AFAICT this is strictly Sprint VoIP. Basically, the worst option.

Agree. Not a good deal.

Better off with individual plans and FF.

So this post is misleading, as it is NOT just $5 per line. Thanks for clearing that up.

Apologies for any confusion you've come across, in your FreedomPop Family Plan you can have 2-10 Lines. You can stay connected for free and enjoy Unlimited Voice, Calls and texts, plus up to FREE 1GB of shared data with just a $5 per-line fee. You choose to upgrade your shared data plan at anytime.

*Two lines at 2GB/month would actually be $14.99 per/month with the $5/line fee.

@FreedomPop, it's not a good deal as it stands. But if you can sweeten the offer, please also think about allowing BYOD. Or at least offer phones that aren't at regular prices. Heck, why not subsidize the phones like every other provider?

still not right?

You can also purchase larger data plans, suitable to your requirements starting at just $15. In addition, FreedomPop is also offering an extra bonus 500 MB of free data for each family member -- the bigger the family, the more opportunities for free data.

so if go with 3 lines sharing 1GB would actually get 1.5GB shared and cost $0 + 3*$5 = $15 per month total? I also see the:

Note: FreedomPop Family Plan offer FREE Premium Voice, Group Messaging, Multimedia messaging and Visual Voicemail services to all of your Lines

if these are true - then the benefit of the Family plan over the "Free" plan would be the unlimited Talk and Text and FREE Premium..... but only 1.5GB of shared data

VS

3 separate "Free" lines with 200 TALK 200 Text and 0.5GB + 0.5GB friends = 1 GB each, no FREE Premium.....at $0 per month total....

OK, thanks for this. From the note provided,

"Note: FreedomPop Family Plan offer FREE Premium Voice, Group Messaging, Multimedia messaging and Visual Voicemail services to all of your Lines"

this does look like an appealing deal. Apologies for the earlier TD (fixed). BYOD still needs to happen, as with the RingPlus shutdown, there is no shortage of Sprint phones that people already have. $5/month for unlimited cell minutes is definitely a good deal. You may want to prominently display that into in the OP.

Premium Voice is "real" voice service.
