FreedomPop Now Offering Free Plan On Any Network Thanks to Red Pocket Mobile

A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that Red Pocket Mobile has acquired two MVNO brands owned by STS Media: FreedomPop and UNREAL Mobile. Today, the company revealed that these two will soon be operational across all four major networks in the country.

Prior to today's announcement, both UNREAL Mobile and FreedomPop ran under AT&T and Sprint's networks. With the new change, this is the major change that has occurred since the acquisition.

Red Pocket Mobile has sent out a welcome message to FreedomPop customers this week promising that they do not have any major plan changes to announce. Instead, they did have some improvements lined up in the coming weeks. In addition, this is perhaps what made FreedomPop believe in Red Pocket being capable of accelerating their mission further.

The good news is that Red Pocket seems to be retaining the free starter plan offered by FreedomPop. Even though this plan came with limited minutes, texts and data, it put FreedomPop on the map. With today's announcement, customers can enjoy "Free wireless service. On any phone. On any major network. For the first time ever."

In addition of accelerating its growth, Red Pocket aims to improve customer support experience and eliminate the occurrence of random charges on the phone bills of FreedomPop customers. According to Director of Customer Experience Kaisha Barela, "We will deliver added transparency and service options to make FreedomPop not just 'freemium,' but premium!"

By making the free plan available across the major networks, it's safe to say that this acquisition is indeed turning out to be a step in the right direction for the brand.

  1. Will I have to buy new sim to stay on att with existing account? Will tmo and Verizon service also use VoIP number?

  2. So that's an interesting scenario. RP expects the current paying customers to subsidize the FP customers so that they can continue their free plans? I don't see that ending well!

  3. Redpocket to offer... not now offering.

  4. Is the transition happening soon? Ditto on Ichi's question... also curious on when Red Pocket takes over and offers base free service on other network.

  5. I reached out to Red Pocket Mobile on facebook with this question:
    I have Freedompop 1 yr plan that gives unlimited text, phone and 1 GB data/month. When that ports to Red Pocket Mobile, will that plan continue until it expires?

    The response:
    Hi! Plans from Freedompop will not roll over when you transfer to Red Pocket Mobile.You need to purchase a different plan. Let us know if you have any further questions. Thanks!

  6. I had to switch to Tello due freedompop to Ting conversion. I have been using freedompop for years until the Ting switch and I like Tello as a cheap replacement. Tello data plan allows tethering.
    Sharing what I did if anyone is doing the same thing?

    1. I tried to port my number but my freedompop sim didn't work with Tello
    2. So I purchased a sim (caution - must find matching sim for your style of phone. I contacted Tello customer service via online form and received an response within 2 hours) from eBay for $4 bucks, cheaper than $10 Tello offer.
    3. Opened a tello account and did the online steps entered my phone IEIN and the news sim's ICCID.
    4. Account activated and I am able to use the phone within 5 min.
    5. Fairwarning - I signed up their $5/mo plan for unlimited text and 500mg data ($6 for 1g). So it's no longer free like freedompop, but definitely better than Ting. Also, their unlimited text is great because it works without turning on data plan unlike freedompop! So you could save data plan by turning it off and still receive text!
    6. If you sign up Tello account with my referral link. You will earn $10 Tello dollar and I will too. Hope you find this is helpful and enjoy it as much as I do!
