I think this is a great move by FreedomPop and should help to open up communication between the company and users. There isn't a whole lot of activity on the forum yet but that should pick up as more users discover the Forum.
By far the most active thread right now is one asking when more phones will be supported for the BYOP (Bring Your Own Phone) program. Currently FeredomPop is only able to activate the HTC EVO 4G and the Samsung Epic Touch, Sprint's version of the Galaxy S II. But in response to a question about activating the HTC Photon 4G, a FreedomPop employee posted "We do not have an exact ETA for that phone being compatible, but we will be making an announcement very soon!" so maybe the Photon will be the next BYOP device.
If you are looking for a deal on a mobile broadband device and service FreedomPop currently has the refurbished Novatel MiFi 4082 3G/4G (EVDO/WiMAX) on sale for $29.99 with free shipping. The regular price is $59. The MiFi comes with a free 3GB of data for the first month.
One thing to watch out for with this deal is that if you do nothing, FreedomPop will automatically enroll you in and bill you for the $19.99 2 GB/month plan at the end of the free month. If you want a lower priced plan or the free plan you must switch before the end of the month. You can switch between any of the paid plans online but you need to call FreedomPop to switch to the free WiMAX only plan. The MiFi can be used with any of the FreedomPop plans listed below.
