FreedomPop Phone Service Launches with Free 200 Minutes, 500 Texts and 500MB Data Each Month

FreedomPop jumps into the mobile operators' business with its all new IP-based voice and messaging communications services. The point of worry for other operators is its free phone service plan that it is now offering to become a full-fledged mobile operator

FreedomPop has officially started selling its smartphone with premium package plan from today i.e. Tuesday, October 1st. It chooses HTC Evo Design as its first carrier smartphone that will come with free first 200 minutes, 500 texts and 500 MBs of data per month. The broadband provider will charge you for anything above these limits.

It is buying 3G and 4G data from Sprint and offering it as its own VoIP-based communications services. The new mobile operator is not using "the usual MVNO model of reselling another network’s traditional voice and messaging service" for its virtual network.

FreedomPop chooses $99 WiMAX-powered refurbished HTC EVO as its first carrier smartphone, though it has plans to offer other Android smartphones in future. Why Sprint’s WiMAX instead of LTE?

FreedomPop CEO and co-founder Stephen Stokols told GigaOm, "In a lot of places Sprint has both networks; WiMAX is stronger, like LA and NYC. We also wanted to launch a $99 phone. That’s hard to do on LTE.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
