FreedomPop has launched some Best Buy exclusive plans.  The MVNO says that the plans are compatible with GSM devices from networks such as AT&T, T-Mobile and Cricket. Given that FreedomPop has a partnership with AT&T, we can safely infer that these plans run on the AT&T network.

Pricing starts at under $5/month for unlimited talk, and text with 1GB of 4G LTE data.

Plan Details

The plans being offered are actually multi-month plans.  It seems that FreedomPop is expanding on the multi-month plans it began offering a short while ago.

FreedomPop has informed me that these Best Buy exclusive plans come with the following features:

Be informed of the latest deals, plans and promotions from AT&T and every one of its MVNO's when you subscribe to the AT&T weekly newsletter. No spam and you can unsubscribe at any time!  

  • Unlimited talk and text with 1GB of LTE data to use every month
  • Voicemail & MMS
  • Compatibility with most unlocked Android & iOS GSM devices including unlocked phones from AT&T, T-Mobile, Metro PCS, Cricket and other GSM carriers

The plan is available as a 3 month offering for $19.99 which works out to an average cost of about $6.66/month and a 12 month offering for $49.99 or about $4.17/month.

I'm actually a bit skeptical about the claim of voicemail and MMS being included in this offer.  I've reached out to FreedomPop for an explanation and to see if they made a mistake with their mailing, because typically they charge extra for MMS and voicemail.  Even if they aren't included and cost a few dollars extra each month, this is still a good bargain.

(Updated: 4/23/18

FreedomPop has confirmed to me that the plans do in fact come with MMS and voicemail. )

Keep in mind that FreedomPop is a VoIP provider, and that talk and text service is provided over data networks only.  This means you get data and WiFi calling and texting but not traditional calling over a cellular voice network.

FreedomPop 99¢ Trial offer

In addition to the Best Buy plans, FreedomPop has got a new trial offer out.  The new trial offer costs just 99¢ and includes the following:

  • Service on AT&T's network
  • Unlimited talk and text with 2GB of LTE data, regularly priced at $24.99/month
  • Free trial of FreedomPop Phone Premier, regularly priced at $7.99/month
  • Free shipping

FreedomPop Phone Premier adds the following features to the base plan:

  • MMS
  • Visual voicemail
  • Data Rollover - rollover your unused data and bank up to 20 GB for use anytime
  • Data Compression - get up to 2x your data with compression technology
  • Usage Alerts - prevent pay as you go charges before going over data limits with usage alerts
  • Private Internet - ensures that your internet, voice calls & texts are secure and encrypted
  • Ad Blocker - block intrusive ads, pop-ups, and video ads to enhance browsing
  • Sponsor Ads Free Messaging - avoid banner ads in your messaging app

This is a good deal for those who just want to get essentially a free month of service on  a phone plan, and those who can live without the Phone Premier package. With the Phone Premier package, the plan will end up costing $32.98/month after the first month, and there are cheaper ATT MVNO's out there. But if you just care about the 2GB of data without a long term multi-month commitment, this looks like a pretty good deal.
