Prepaid Operator Profile: FreedomPop

This is one in a series of Prepaid Phone News' series of comprehensive US prepaid mobile operator profiles. These profiles cover all the major US mobile operators' prepaid plans as well as MVNOs which offer a good value.

Overview: FreedomPop launched as a Sprint mobile virtual mobile operator (MVNO) in October, 2012 with $7.5 million in funding from Mangrove Capital, DCM, and Skype Founder Niklas Zennstom's Atomico. FreedomPop claims to have added over one million customers since launch.

FreedomPop uses a "freemuim" business model that provides users with a limited but generous amount of free data and phone service and makes money by selling devices and extra features like voice mail and faster data and by charging overage rates for data, texts and minutes after the free allotment is used up.

Sprint network service: FreedomPop launched as a mobile broadband only service offering 500 MB of free WiMAX data per month on the Sprint network. Paid 3G EVDO and free LTE mobile broadband were added in April and August of 2013 respectively. WiMAX service was scheduled to shut down Nov. 6, 2015 but may still be available in some markets because of a court order.

In October 2013 FreedomPop launched FreedomPhone service which provides 500 MB of data, 200 voice minutes and 500 texts per month on the Sprint metwork at no charge. FreedomPhone is an all-IP service, calling and texting uses a custom Android app that routes them over the phone's data connection rather than the traditional voice and signaling channels.

Global GSM service: In January, 2016 FreedomPop began offering FreedomPop Global GSM service to customers in the US. The GSM option uses a Three UK based SIM that roams at no cost in 25 countries including the US, where FreedomPop Global uses the T-Mobile and AT&T networks but seems to prefer AT&T. Unlike FreedomPop's Sprint based free plan which comes with 500 free MB of LTE data per month, the free GSM plan only includes 200 MB.  200 voice minutes and 500 texts per month are also available using the FreedomPOP "Messaging" VOIP and messaging app. Data on the GSM service is limited to HSPA+, LTE is not available. Data traffic is routed through a server in the UK which is probably responsible for the high pings of 300ms or more which I have experienced consistently.

Zero-Rated WhatsApp SIM: In August, 2016, FreedomPop launched its WhatsApp SIM in the US. The WhatsApp SIM is a version of the Global GSM service that works in the same countries as the Global SIM and includes unlimited free WhatsApp calling and texting that doesn't count against the included 200 MB of free data. WhatsApp plan only includes 100 minutes and 100 texts while the Global plan includes 200 minutes and 500 texts.

Technology: CDMA on the 800 Mhz and 1900 Mhz bands with 1xRTT and EVDO data support. LTE on bands 25, 26 and 41. GSM and HSPA+ on the 850 and 1900 Mhz bands in the US.

FreedomPop CDMA uses the Sprint native network, which is the smallest of the four national operators. There's no roaming. FreedomPop's interactive coverage map does a good job of indicating where each type of data is available and lets you zoom in to see block by block coverage.

FreedomPop GSM uses the AT&T and T-Mobile networks in the US.

Phones: FreedomPop sells a variety of pre-owned LTE Android phones and iPhones.
Mobile Broadband: FreedomPop sells pre-owned LTE hotspots and USB modems.
SIMs: Global GSM SIMs are sold by FreedomPop.

How to Buy: FreedomPop phones and mobile broadband devices can be purchased from the FreedomPop site. They are also available, often at discounted prices, from Groupon, Woot, Choxi, StackSocial and Newegg.

BYOSD: FreedomPop supports Bring Your Own Sprint Device (BYOSD). Any phone that passes Sprint's MVNO Finacial Eliligibility Critera is allowed. The following types of phones should pass:
  • Used Sprint phones that have been completely paid off by the original owner completing the terms of their contract or equipment installment plan or paying an early termination fee.
  • Phones from Sprint's prepaid brands (Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile or Sprint Prepaid) that have been used for at least 12 months on the Sprint brand they were sold for.
  • Brand new Sprint postpaid phones that were purchased at full retail price from Sprint or a manufacturer store like the Apple Store for iPhones or Google Play for Nexus devices.
  • Phones purchased from independent Sprint MVNOs like Ting or TextNow.
  • Effective April 17, 2016,  Sprint will no longer allow new never activated Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile and Sprint Prepaid phones to be activated on MVNOs. Phones from these prepaid brands must be used for 12 months on the service they were sold for before they can be activated on Sprint MVNOs, including FreedomPop.
Unfortunately the rules don't always work as advertised and some phones that should work don't. The only sure way to know if Sprint will allow a phone to be activated on FreedomPop is by trying to activate it at http://www.freedompop.com/byod.

How to Activate: Activate devices sold by FreedomPop at http://www.freedompop.com/activate.
Activate BYOSD phones at http://www.freedompop.com/byod.
A credit or debit card with associated billing name and address and an email address are required for activation. FreedomPop allows multiple devices per user but each one needs a separate account and a unique email address. Multiple devices can share the same name, address and credit or debit card. Activation is free for FreedomPop devices, BYOSD activation is $19.99.

Payment Options: The only payment option is by credit or debit card. A valid payment method is required at all times on all plans, including the free plan. Auto Pay is available.

Free Plan Billing:

If Auto Pay is enabled your card will be charged $15 whenever your remaining data goes below 100 MB and you have a cash balance under $2. The $15 is added to your balance to cover potential overages.

If Auto Pay is disabled and your account balance is greater than $0, when you have used all of your plan's allotted data you will be charged the 2¢ or 2.5¢ per MB overage rate until you accoumt balance reaches $0

However, data reporting is delayed by 3 hours so it's possible to exceed your plan's data limit before the system detects that you have less than 100 MB left. If this happens, the system will charge the customer $5, deduct the overage charge and add the remainder to the account's cash balance.

You must have at least $5 in your account to turn off Auto-top up. If you don't you will see a warning advising you that if you turn Auto-top up off you will be charged $5 which will be added to you balance.

Balance expiration: unused account balances expire after 90 days. Expired balances can be restored by clicking the reactivation link on your Billing Overview page.

Account expiration: plans automatically renew every month with plan and usage fees charged to your credit or debit card. If the charges are declined service will be suspended.

Getting More Free Data: There are two ways to get additional free data, Freedom Friends and FreedomPop Offers.

Freedom Friends: FreedomPop allows users to earn up to 500 MB/month by connecting with FreedomPop friends. You can invite your real life and social media friends to join FreedomPop and if they do you both get an extra 50MB per month from each friend up to a maximum of 500 MB per month.

A faster and easier way to get Freedom Friends is to connect with strangers on social; media who are already FreedomPop users. There's a SlickDeals Forum thread, Facebook Group and a Facebook Page where FreedomPop users share their email addresses so that other users can add them as Freedom Friends. It only takes a few minutes to gather up a dozen or two email addresses and enter on the Freedom Friends page on the FreedomPop site for a quick 500 MB/month boost. It's a good idea to use a dedicated or disposable email address as your FreedomPop account email to avoid exposing your primary email to the world.

An other benefit of Freedom Friends is that you share data with them, up to 100 MB per friend with a maximum of 500 MB shared per month. If you are running out of data you can ask a friend to give you some on the using a link on the FreedomPop site.

FreedomPop Offers: You can earn an unlimited amount of free data by completing offers. They involve things like taking surveys, signing up for brand email blasts and downloading PC and smartphone apps.

Account Management: FreedomPop provides an online account management portal with detailed call, messaging and data use records. It also lets users add FreedomPop friends and share data with them, see available free data offers and add and remove add-on services and switch plans.

To downgrade from a paid plan to the free plan: Go to My Account > PlansDetails and Plan Management > To downgrade your plan, click here The last link "To downgrade your plan, click here" is in a small font.

Downgrading a plan is retroactive to the beginning of the plan month.

Customer support by phone is not available for free plans. Don't cancel your premium plan free trial until you are sure everything is working correctly.

To disable extra cost services you don't want: Go to My Account > Services and click the Deactivate link next to the services name.

Tethering: (using phone as a modem for a laptop or other device) The built in Sprint Hotspot app on CDMA phones requires a $3.99 add-on. Some 3rd party tethering apps may without the add-on, depending on the phone make and model.

Call Forwarding, Call Waiting and 3-Way Calling: not supported.

"Secret" Codes:
##786# (most Sprint phones) displays the phone's MSID, ESN, MEID, PRL, call and data counters and version numbers.

Free information services calls
911 - Emergency services are available through the phone's native dialer, not the FreedomPop app.

FreedomPop Quirks:

The FreedomPop Messaging App, which is also used for calls, offers reasonable call quality when used with a good WiFi or 4G signal. There's a bit of lag but volume and clarity are good. Call quality is degraded but still usable with a strong 3G signal. But with a weak signal or only 2G data calls break up so badly that it's impossible to carry on a conversation. This happens in locations where other phones on the Sprint network are usable for conventional cellular voice calls.  FreedomPop is now offering Premium Voice, a $3.99/month plan add-on that lets customers to make and receive calls on the Sprint voice network when data connection quality is too low to support VOIP calling.

As a freemium service FreedomPop needs users to sign up for add on services. They make it easy to add extra cost plans and services but not always so easy to remove them. When you activate a device, by default you get signed up for multiple offers and add ons which are advertised as free trials. However they are only free for the first month, if you don't cancel them before the month is up they will automatically renew and you will be charged for subsequent months. It's is possible to decline some of the add ons and trials during the initial sign up but you have to read the sign up pages carefully to find the link to opt out of each one.

Customer Service:
Phone support (paid plans only): 888-701-1353: Monday to Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM (PT). Hold times for tech support average 20 to 30 minutes but holds for billing or order support can be much longer.

Comment Page :
  1. Tried FreedomPop, had high hopes for their disruptive approach, but this is still technically beta testing services, and it shows. Even sitting still in an area with great coverage, I could not place calls or send texts. The app constantly crashed or disconnected, and when it did work, would send text messages multiple, duplicate times. So sending one text might have actually dinged my account for anywhere between 3 and 5. I have great hopes that FreedomPop can work out the bugs, but until then, I couldn't recommend it unless you are on a WiFi connection most of the day, and not moving between connections, in which case, having mobile seems sort of counter productive.

  2. Their sales approach is one of the most annoying I have ever experienced. You have to give an email address and physical location JUST TO SHOP THE SITE. Then they funnel you to a path, buy a phone, hotspot or home router, and it's impossible to comparison shop.

    I thank you for this site, I don't think this information is available anywhere else and certainly not this easy to read.

  3. FreedomPop's new coverage map appears to show that they have limited roaming now. If so, you may want to update this profile, and add their new coverage map to your map page.

    1. The coverage map that Anonymous linked to below appears identical to the Boost Mobile one. I don't see any coverage in places where Sprint postpaid roams like Elko NV and Boonville CA. Where do you see roaming?

    2. See Marquette, MI (49855) and Escanaba, both in the MI upper peninsula were there is no Sprint network at all. Also, West from Escanaba along the WI border. These areas show 3G coverage where Verizon has service. I suppose it might be a regional or local operator there.

    3. There is also a big, new coverage area West and South of the MI-WI border near Lake MI. This is a large, white hole on the Boost map, since Sprint has no network coverage except along the Lake MI, until you get further South. See Nashville and Antigo, WI.

    4. I tried signing up for service with an address in Escanaba and and got a message saying that FreedomPop has no coverage there. Data roaming is expensive and I believe it's unlikely that FreedomPop is offering it given their pricing.

    5. It makes perfect sense that you cannot sign up for a new account in Escanaba. They are not going to sign you up if you live in a roaming area and perhaps lose even more money on your "free" service. Their new map shows coverage in places where there is no Sprint network now. It their new map is correct, a FreedomPop phone should still work in those places in roaming mode, even if you cannot sign up for a new account there.
      Also, FreedomPop used to show WiMax and 3G coverage in Lansing, MI, but they would not let you sign up. You can sign up there now, 6-9 months later.

  4. Here is the correct map link for FreedomPop's new LTE-WiMax-3G coverage map:

  5. Jason in PortlandMarch 15, 2015 at 8:30 PM

    Found myself needing a new line of service on a new device and decided to give FreedomPop a try since they're currently running the $24.95 refurbished ZTE Force with free shipping promotion. Sprint coverage is okay in my area and they do have LTE, far from the best however it works.

    Seems the trick to ordering from FreedomPop is to carefully read each page, do not just enter your information and click on the green buttons. I was able to opt-out of their optional wifi hotspot service for an extra $1/mo. by unchecking a box. It does state that the other 'free trials' must be canceled BEFORE they bill for the next month by contacting them and insisting on switching to the free plan. I copied the information to a local file so I know what to ask to cancel before the trial is up. BTW, they're currently offering 1GB of LTE data for $15/mo. and unlimited calling and texts for $4.99, which differs from the prices above.

    After placing the order, the next webpage told me their devices ship in 1-2 weeks.

    Another big gotcha is they tried to sell me a WiMax computer modem, clicking on a small "skip" link got me through without accepting it. Again, reading the page before continuing was the key to avoiding an expensive and unwanted surprise!

    There was one plus: I was given the option of selecting a phone number from a multiple-choice list of available numbers, and could try different area codes or cities if I wanted to see availability of a given area code. Although there's no way to get a specific number, this is far better than most Sprint MVNOs, where you get whatever number the network assigns.

    Also received two e-mails with additional information, again, read the e-mails, make sure everything is as ordered.

    Now to wait for the phone and give the service a try.

    1. Jason in PortlandJuly 4, 2015 at 2:41 PM

      Just wanted to add that it did take the full two weeks to receive the phone (last week of March), so the month-long free trial was more of a 20-day free trial. I seemed to avoid the problems others have reported with buying pre-owned devices; the phone was received in like-new condition with an upgraded OS and was ready to use out of the box.

      As much as I liked the idea and the price for the unlimited service, it just wasn't for me, so I downgraded to the free plan via the website by downgrading both the voice and data several days before the plan would have billed. I received an e-mail upon successfully and fully downgrading. My card statement and the Freedompop account portal both confirmed I was not charged for any service other than the initial phone purchase.

      The thought of needing to keep a credit card number associated with free service was a bit unnerving, so I ported out the number to another service, then called to fully cancel the account. The number they now give on the site to cancel is 888-906-3184 (same hours, M-F 9-5 PT), after slogging through the phone tree I lucked out and immediately reached a representative who canceled the account. Again, I received a cancellation e-mail shortly thereafter.

      For the "tl:dr" types out there: If one has excellent Sprint 4G LTE service at the exact locations they live, work, and play, are willing to take the time to thoroughly read signup pages and e-mails, and keep track of their card statements on a regular basis, then Freedompop may be the right service for them.

  6. Since they're going to be offering service in the UK and will only be giving those users 200mb free, I wonder if they're going to charge them after they use 100mb of data. I don't know why they say "500mb free" when you're either suspended or charged around the 400mb mark. I love their service but there are some deceptive practices I find very annoying, and that deception hurts their image with the public.

    1. FreedomPop stops free data at 400 MB because there's a 3 hour delay between when data is used and when Sprint reports it to FreedomPop. The 100 MB cushion reduces the change of users exceeding the 500 MB limit and being charged even though auto refill is off.

      3 UK's billing system may not have a delay. If it doesn't there would be no need to shut off data at 100 MB.

  7. Also, everything "Jason in Portland" said is spot on. Be careful when signing up for service. Many people don't read everything and just blindly click and then complain when they're billed. The info about the service, fees and everything, is presented to you when you sign up. READ IT so you know what you're getting into. If you do that you're more likely to appreciate the service despite it's burps and hiccups and occasional gas. lol

  8. I ordered the $29.99 LG Optimus F3 over 4 weeks ago from Freedompop site and it still hasn't shipped. Beware if you are trying to get this phone. Previously, I tested out the SIII which worked pretty well, however used I didnt think it was worth the $99.99 I paid so I sent it back to Groupon and received my refund no problems. Shipping from Groupon was prompt. During my testing, the service worked well in the Denver area, where Sprint just won PCmag's "Fastest Mobile Network 2015". If I ever receive the F3, I think it will work well. Free cell service will be sweet!

  9. New "Surprise" for all FreePop users: You are suspended if you don't use your hotspot for a couple of months. Hotspot just stops working.
    To re-activate, you have to log into OLAM. Push the reactivate button. Connect to hotspot via WiFi and navigate to your admin account. Log in. Find the right menu and update profile.
    After download, and maybe a restart you can finally use your hotspot again.
    I am on a paid plan, so I think this affects all mobile data accounts.

    1. Thanks for the heads up. However I'm unable to confirm that FreedomPop is deactivating devices for inactivity.

      I just tried using my Bolt Stick WiMax US modem. It was last used May 12, which is over two months ago, and it still works today. Either the new policy doesn't apply to all users or it takes more than two months of inactivity to trigger the deactivation.

      Did your device get deactivated? If so how long was it inactive? You can use the activity logs on the OLAM to see when it was last used.

  10. FreedomPop offers $18/Month plan for iPhone customers, will start selling financed iPhones.

  11. FreedomPop still has access to the Sprint WiMax network in the DC area. Mine has been connected to the '4G' network since 11/5. I just shut it down and it reconnected. Speeds are good, ~6Mbps, so I know it's not 3G.

  12. I have had both the WiFi device and a few free phones almost since the beginning of freedom pop,all my devices are on a free plan, when I first started it did not work well at all but helped in a pinch. (I end of month on my real phone or giving employees temp phones) potential times the phones and devices got tossed in a drawer and forgot about until needed. Each time I tried the devices again they worked a bit better. Now several years later I have the devices I have my employees take them in situations and the WiFi hot spot has made a permanent spot on the dash of my truck, between sharing free data from the phones to extra data from "referrals and reoccurring offers for extra data I am able to use my online invoice program and look up materials from my tablet and my online rent collection software it all works great! I don't get as good of service as I do with my main number, but I think I get more value than I pay, normally $0.00 a month

  13. FreedomPop is selling Global SIMs that advertise the 200 minutes and 500 sms along with 200 mb again. I just ordered one for $9.95, shipping included. They do not mention VOIP for voice, and they did assign a phone number. Premium Voice for incoming calls is enabled in my account, but I am not charged for that as a separate service.
    I just found this link for $7.95:

  14. FreePop has zero-rated data WhatsApp service in the US now:
    Send text, pictures, movies and don't pay for the data.
    Let the rants and fake outrage from jealous outsiders and self-imagined 'legal experts' begin.

    1. How much does the zero-rated data service cost?

    2. The SIM costs $9.99 plus $1.99 shipping.
      Unlimited WhatsApp use is free as long as you cancel the free trials of add on features that Freedom Pop enrolls you in when you buy the SIM and downgrade from the paid plan they start you on to the free one.

  15. Does the $19.99 BYOP activation fee apply to the GSM service?

    How much does the GSM sim cost?

    1. The Global GSM SIMs come pre-activated, there's no activation fee. The list price of a SIM is $15 but they are usually on sale for much less currently 99¢ at Global SIM wuth free Selfie Stick - FreedomPop

    2. Thanks for your reply.

      Does the sim come with a US phone number or a UK number?

      Will MertoPCS consider this number to be a T-Mobile network number if I want to port it to MetroPCS to get a port-in credit?

    3. The global SIM is data only. On my Android phones, in Settings > About phone > Status, Phone number is listed as Unknown.

      FreedomPop gives you a US number for calling and messaging using their app. https://www.twilio.com/lookup lists mine as a Bandwidth.com VOIP number.

      I have no idea if MetroPCS will give the port in credit for porting VOIP numbers.

  16. Is it possible to switch between two GSM sims on the same phone and get twice as much free data this way?

    1. You would think FreedomPop would have implemented some sort of measure to prevent people from doing that.

  17. Between unlocked AT&T phones and unlocked T-Mobile phones which ones work best with the GSM sim?

    1. For use in the US most phones from either carrier should work well. You need a phone that supports GSM and UMTS on the 850 and 1900 Mhz bands. Most T-Mobile and AT&T phones support those bands. T-Mobile still has UMTS on the 1700 Mhz band in a few markets so support for that band is a plus. I don't consider UMTS 1700 Mhz essential as FreedomPop prefers AT&T and rarely connects to T-Mobile and the vast majority of T-Mobile UMTS is on 1900 Mhz.

      For Europe you need a phone that supports GSM on 900 and 1800 Mhz and UMTS on 900 and 2100 Mhz. Relatively few phones from either carrier support all those bands so check the specs before you buy if you plan to use FreedomPop in Europe.

  18. Since FreedomPop doesn't support LTE on their GSM service how well does VoIP work?

    1. I guess no one knows lol

    2. Apparently not

  19. Can you keep the unused data you get from Freedom Friends if you pay for data rollover?

    1. Yes, you can rollover up to 500 MB/month of your unused data, it doesn't matter where the data came from.

  20. "Data on the GSM service is limited to HSPA+, LTE is not available. Data traffic is routed through a server in the UK which is probably responsible for the high pings of 300ms or more which I have experienced consistently."

    How does this affect VoIP? Is it even usable for calls?

    1. With that kind of latency I don't think VoIP would work.

    2. Does latency even affect VoIP?

  21. without LTE, what kind of speeds are people getting? No complaints since its free... Using 2 sims to get twice the data is fine, but you also have 2 phone numbers. Even if you never use it for voice, you still have the hassle of sim swapping all the time, but that might still work for you since its free.
