FreedomPop is now giving away the 2nd generation Motorola E for $9.99. With the purchase of the phone comes a 2 week trial of FreedomPop's service on its CDMA network partner Sprint. Additionally the MVNO's Best Buy exclusive plans are now on sale. A new trial offer of the company's GSM plan with 2GB of data is available for $4.99.
Moto E 2nd Generation Offer
FreedomPop is actually marketing the 2nd generation Moto E as being given away for free. By free, the company means you'll have to pay a $9.99 activation fee to get it with a trial plan.
The trial plan being offered includes 14 days of service with unlimited talk and text and 2GB of 4G LTE data. The data and unlimited talk and text will come by way of what FreedomPop calls its 2GB Premier package. After the 14 day trial service is up, subscribers are expected to pay $24.99/month to maintain service.
FreedomPop is also offering its Phone Premier Package as part of the trial. That package includes the following:
- Visual Voicemail
- Data Rollover - rollover your unused data and bank up to 20 GB for use anytime
- Premium Voice - Higher quality voice calls when the network data connection is weak. Without premium voice, phone calls are placed and received strictly over VoIP either through Sprint's 4G LTE network or Wi-Fi. Some people find VoIP to offer a lower quality conversational experience.
- MMS picture and group text messaging
- Data compression technology to help your data last up to 2x longer
- FreedomPop private internet service - encrypts your internet, talk and text connections
- Tethering/mobile hotspot
- Ad blocker
- Faster data speeds
After the 14 day trial is up, FreedomPop will charge you $9.99/month to maintain the service package.
