Don’t you guys just love spending like $100 on your cell phone service and data plan every single month? No? For real? Just joking. Me either. In fact, I just won’t do it. I have a lame little TracFone for my texting and talking, but you know what? I can get by on $10 a month using that handy (if not archaic) little device. Seriously, though. Why can’t I get an affordable cell plan? I am a work-at-home mom, and I almost never have a situation in which I’d need much data at all. Yet if I want a smartphone with all its perks, I have to pay at least $50 a month. Or do I?
Yesterday, (yes, just yesterday) I found out about a service called FreedomPop. This company claims to offer completely free cell phone service. Now, I’m not quite sure of all the details yet because like I said, I just found out about it yesterday. What I do know is that you pay them .99 cents for a SIM card that you insert into your cell, and then you have the first month of their premium service completely free. You are also free to switch over to the FREE plan whenever you want (and that is totally what I’m going to do). All their plans come with unlimited talk and text, and a certain amount of data.
The really cool thing about FreedomPop, well besides the fact that I don’t have to pay a cell bill anymore of course, is that they let you complete tasks to earn more data. Similar to Swagbucks if you are familiar with that I think. Swagbucks gives you swagbucks for completing offers, sharing with friends, and doing different tasks whereas FreedomPop gives you data to add to your plan! Genius, right??
Anyway, I wanted to give you guys the heads up that I ordered my SIM card yesterday. They say it can take up to 10 days to get it in the mail, but once I do, I will be sure to do a followup post on how it is working for me. I’m SO excited!!
Do you use FreedomPop? Have you tried their free cell phone service? Have you earned free data? I would love to hear anything and everything about this company. Let me know if you sign up too!
