FreedomPop expanding interesting service plans to iPhone 5, 4S and 4

iPhone 5s

FreedomPop, an interesting upstart carrier that has built itself on offering free mobile service, has just opened up its network to both the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and iPhone 4. Although it started out only offering service with hotspots and an iPod Touch case running on Sprint's WiMax network, FreedomPop has recently expanded to proper phone service, Sprint's LTE network and has added support for three Apple phones.

Although we're looking at new hardware choices, the FreedomPop value proposition is the same. Once bringing your device and number over to the carrier, you're given a base line of completely free 200 minutes, 500 texts and 500MB of data every single month. If you want to use more, you'll either have to buy buckets of minutes, texts or data, or get others to sign up for the carrier using you as a reference, netting you a bit more to play with every month.

You can bring a Sprint-compatible iPhone 5, 4S or 4 to FreedomPop and they'll get things set up for you when you port your number over, but if you don't have a Sprint-compatible device, FreedomPop will sell you a refurbished iPhone 5 for $349. It's an interesting concept that hasn't really caught on with many customers up until now, but with the addition of recent Apple devices FreedomPop may have a bit better chance picking up customers.

This has the same impact on me as Ting. Offer an amazing deal in terms of monthly plan, but use the worst possible network that I can't use. Sprint just plain sucks where I am and that's been the case for many years. calls drop, data stops, batteries drain from bad reception. Completely destroys this for me.

Yeah, same here. Ting and Republic Wireless both seem really great, but the Sprint network, while fine where I live, is garbage in too many places where I go for work. I'll be sticking with Aio/Cricket for the foreseeable future, I guess.

I signed up with Freedom Pop more than two years ago. 90% of the places I tried it coverage was nonexistent or so slow that it was basically non existent. They charge 99 cents when you don't use any data. I was eventually told they were stopping this and when it continued I called and cancelled. Two months later I am still being billed. Don't even think about dealing with this company.

hey, someone help me? my iphone 4 charge has problem, it's showing 100% all the time but runs on same for many hours,ifs it's less than 100% it's being off, what can I do for this? plz help me????
