Break free from “traditional” with FreedomPop’s 100% Free Talk, Text, and Data [UPDATED]Anna Scantlin - Contributing Editor
It wasn’t too long ago that we had a special offer for you from PhoneDog and FreedomPop that gave you the opportunity to get 500MB of 4G data for free every month (without contract). Although that offer has since expired, we are pleased to announce that there is a new offer in town - 100% Free Talk, Text, and Data. Get ready to save hundreds of dollars every year!
Typically, when we think about people and their smartphones we assume that they use their smartphones... a lot. They use a lot of data, do a lot of texting, and use a lot of minutes; for many people, their smartphone is their world. However, in reality, not everybody needs huge buckets of data, unlimited texting, or thousands of minutes every month. For some people, a smartphone is more of a luxury than a constant connection. So why on earth are they paying the same amount of money as somebody who is constantly on their phone? Even some of the lowest plans offered through carriers still offer way more than anybody really needs, and still charge an arm and a leg for it.
If you’re one of those people who feels like they’re paying way too much for services they’re not even using, then you may want to check out this offer from FreedomPop. With this new offer, you’ll be able to get a refurbished HTC EVO 4G (MSRP $199) plus a free trial of unlimited talk, text, and 500MB of data (MSRP $10.99), all for $79. If that deal wasn’t sweet enough, you also get free shipping on your entire order!
To make things even better, if you find that you’re not interested in paying $10.99/month after your initial free trial, FreedomPop also gives you a completely free monthly plan option that you can downgrade to. This plan includes 200 minutes, 500 texts, and 500MB of 4G/3G data. No matter what plan you decide to go with, however, you can have peace of mind in knowing that you won’t be charged any cancellation fees at any point in time, because FreedomPop doesn’t use contracts!
The EVO 4G is an older generation Android at this point, but if having the latest and greatest isn’t the most important thing when it comes to your smartphone you could be saving some serious cash every year - that’s $1500, dawg! The EVO 4G also happens to be one of my favorite smartphones I’ve owned (seriously - kickstands on smartphones need to make a comeback) so even if it’s an older phone, it’s one that I can personally vouch for.
So, for a quick recap, you get: A refurbished HTC EVO 4G and one trial month of unlimited talk, text, and 500MB of 3G/4G data (no contract), all for just $79 and free shipping. That’s a savings of over $100 right there, with many more months of savings to come if you end up signing up! If you’ve been looking for ways to cut costs (but not services), you should check out this offer from PhoneDog and FreedomPop!
UPDATE: The previous offer was for a total of $99, but the new offer slashes $20 off of the price. You can now purchase a refurbished HTC EVO 4G and a trial month of unlimited talk, text, and 500MB of 3G/4G data for $79 and free shipping!
