About a year ago, FreedomPop became the first free cell service provider offering 500 mb of data to anyone who bought their products. As the company hits its one-year anneversary, the carrier will begin selling it’s first official cell phone. The phone sold will be the HTC Evo Design 4G and will come with free service. While the phone is over 2 years old, it’s not a terrible offer when you consider you will only be paying $100 for the device off-contract with free service. After you pay for the device, you get 200 minutes, 500 texts, and 500mb of data each month. To get unlimited service you pay a small fee of $11 a month. These prices are over 90% cheaper than that of Verizon or AT&T. This is a ground-breaking price point since cell phone users in the U.S. pay more than anywhere else in the world. FreedomPop runs off of Sprint’s towers so if you live in an are with good coverage from Sprint, you may want to take a look at this.
