Depending on where you live, you should be able to get this entire offer for just 1¢ total, including free shipping and no taxes. If you decide to keep all of FreedomPop's trial add-on's, you'll end up paying $98.88 every 6 months for the service. This works out to $16.48/month and makes FreedomPop one of the cheapest AT&T MVNO's to offer unlimited talk and text with at least 2 GB of data each month.
Keep in mind that FreedomPop is a VoIP provider which some people are not too fond of. VoIP services can sometimes add a little latency to phone calls. This means that sometimes when a subscriber speaks there may be a slight delay before the person on the other end of the line hears what was said. The delay works in both directions.
If your ok with that, give FreedomPop a try. It will only cost you a penny.
For those of you interested in service on the Sprint network, FreedomPop has a similar offer available using that network as well.
