Freedom Pop Free Cell Phone Voice, Text & Data Services

FredomPop, will be freeing people from expensive contracts soon with free, voice, text and data mobile service. All you have to do is pay for the Android phone and any overages. The service is expected to launch "later this summer."

FreedomPop guarantees customers 500 MB of 4G data for free, unlimited texting, and 200 free anytime voice minutes each month. For voice calls the service uses VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol technology.)

Note this service is different from subsidized free cell phones for low-income households such as the newly announced program in California.

Freedom Pop Free Mobile ServiceFreedomPop users also get free unlimited calls to each other. The FreedomPop service will be available on Android phones later this summer and will be the first-ever all-data devices running 100 percent VoIP over cellular networks.

The way Freedom Pop services work is that you buy a device, or an app and then when you go over the limit you pay a fee, like the 4G data device the Freedom Spot Overdrive Pro which sells $39.99 or the iPod sleeve that turns an iPod into a phone.

The 500MB is free, extra data is 2 cents per MB, the 2GB plan costs $17.99 (1 cent per MB overage)and the premium 4GB plan is 28.99 a month (1 cent per MB over).

The actual smartphones such as the HTC EVO 4G are expected to cost around $200.

The FreedomPop service uses Sprint/Clearwire WiMAX 4G therefore it will only work in areas covered by Sprint's WiMAX network.

Freedom Pop reported that the quality of  VoIP services is now at a stage where it can deliver mobile services completely free.
