It’s practically impossible at this point not to have a cellphone. The device is as integral as your keys or wallet when you walk out the door each day. 

Whether you’re clinging to family plans as the last shred of dependency, or desperate to end a relationship with your deceptive cellphone carrier, there’s another more affordable option. 

FreedomPop is a free mobile service provider that allows you to call, text, and stay connected on a 4G LTE network. You pay for the phone and for what you need each month without dealing with contracts or cancellation fees.

All FreedomPop phones are compatible with Wi-Fi, and any talking, texting, or surfing does not count toward your monthly limit. Communication between FreedomPop phones is free, which is a huge incentive for partners, colleagues, or families. Unlike most carriers, you get rewarded for being a loyal customer. For example, adding friends gets you more free data, and completing partner offers gets you unlimited data.

FreedomPop’s basic free plan provides 500 texts, 200 minutes, and 500MB each month, but you can choose from a few plans to best suit your needs. There’s an unlimited talk and text plan for more flexible communications, and a premium plan adds 2GB of data to unlimited talk and text. If your needs change month to month, you simply swap plans without hassle.

Rather than getting saddled with roaming fees, jetsetters will be happy to know that free unlimited calling is supported in more than 60 countries. It shouldn’t cost a fortune to check in or get help when you’re lost, and now it doesn’t have to.


Normally a device alone can cost you hundreds, but right now, FreedomPop is offering the Moto E LTE, plus a free month trial of the premium plan for just $29.99.  You don’t even have to pay for shipping.

You’ll also get a free month of the Premiums Plus add-ons, which includes a variety of extra options, including personal online security, antivirus protection, data rollover, and more. (Normally $7.99 monthly.)

The premium plan is normally $24.99 monthly, but you can downgrade to the free plan anytime. This package is a $262.97 total value, but you can see what the fuss is all about for $30. You can even keep your phone number, or get a new one. But you can’t afford not to give it a shot.
