    Work great for internet connection to normal tcp/ip connection like port #80/443, email, ssh, vpn. If you need to connect with specific port #, you may need to use like ssh->port forwarding to tunnel the network traffic.

    As long as you are within their coverage area this is the sweetest deal out there for a full year of cellular service.

    With the coverage of the AT&T network, unlimited calls, and unlimited texts this is a most affordable plan. Installed the SIM card in my new phone and was up and running in just a few minutes.

    Activating service and getting everything up and running on my phone went smooth and service/signal has been great so far. Just set up an account with FreedomPop, insert the SIM card and you are good to go. At less than$5 per month for a year of service this is definitely enough for my son and gives me piece of mind that he can reach me when he stays at school for activities.

    Its great having a phone that doesn't eat your paycheck and gets you all the features and coverage of the big providers! We had been on FreedomPop for years under their month to month plan and this yearly plan is even better. Its easy to switch by pulling your other service providers SIM card out of your phone and installing this one.

    Make sure service works in your area prior to purchase. Used my sim in an unlocked ATT Samsung Galaxy S7 Active phone, with no problems. If you are a current Freedompop member I suggest using a new email to register as I had problems using my existing account. If you call FP for help they will want a 10$ surcharge.

    This arrived on time and was very easy to install into my unlocked smartphone. Now I have cellular service for a whole year with unlimited talk, text and 1 GB of data all for $39. I was able to pick a number from a list of available phone numbers. You can add visual voicemail at an additional cost per month if needed.

    Cheapest cell plan out there

    I picked this up on black Friday so it was even cheaper than usual. The sim grants unlimited text/talk for the year, and 1GB data per month. It can be easy to blow through that data if you are not careful, but a little bit of curating of data usage on ios or android along with wifi usage and this is almost a nearly free cell plan. I have my father on this & recommend to everyone else. Yes, the price is inexpensive, but the coverage and service is good.

    When I first found this deal I had to read it twice. Unlimited talk and text plus 1GB per month for $49.99 ANNUALLY - not monthly! Popped the SIM into an unlocked T-Mobile GSM phone and works great. Excellent coverage with AT&T network. I switched my daughter over to it and saving many hundreds per year now.

    FreedomPop seems too good to be true, and frankly, it really is. You get unlimited talk, text and a GB of data every month for under $5 if you purchase the year in advanced. Now, you do need to keep a card on file with them incase you go over that GB, but if you stay under it, you'll never see a bill in the next 12 months. It's spectacular service on the AT&T network and data speeds are stellar. I'd give it three thumbs up if I could, but since I can't, it's just five stars and a ton of cash in my pocket.

    Picked this up for son to use with unlocked GSM phone. The SIM uses ATT network and coverage has been great. Calls and texts are through FP app which so far has worked well. Nothing I have seen comes close to unlimited voice/text for under $5 a month. May switch other family members if continues to work well.

    I wasn't expecting much when I picked this up. I was pleasantly surprised with how well it works. It uses AT&T LTE and my coverage is great and fast. I hit a few snags setting up their separate app for calls but it's been smooth since. The promos for earning extra data is a welcomed bonus. Highly recommend checking this out.

    FreedomPop supports Wi-Fi Calling, a feature that allows you to make calls and send texts over Wi-Fi. It's handy if you're using the carrier's free service with its caps on texts and talk time, as you'll be able to use Wi-Fi for a lot of your calling and texting needs. Other special features include mobile hotspot support. FreedomPop also features rollover data, in which up to 500MB per month of unused data can carry over to the next month. Rollover costs $3.99 per month, but another option, Rollover Plus, costs $6.99 and lets you carry over up to 1GB of data. Your unused data doesn't expire, though you're capped at storing 20GB for the standard Rollover plan and 40GB for Rollover Plus. You can also earn data by referring friends to FreedomPop.

    While I haven't activated this sim yet, I have a couple of other Freedompop lines. The LTE sims use AT&T, and the coverage in my area is very good, though AT&T doesn't have LTE in my area like Verizon and T-Mobile do. The calls and texts have to go thru the Freedompop app vs. the normal apps on your phone. I find on the sim I have in an iPhone its easy to use and is ok, but for Android, the interface is clunky and hard to use. Freedompop used to let you earn another 500mb of free data but recently lowered that to 50mb, not even noticible. While you get "unlimited" calls and texts, including voicemail and MMS/picture messages (the free Freedompop plans dont include these), Freedompop will nickle and dime you for every other thing, including support. If you don't pay them for premium support, I hope you don't have a problem as your choice is their community forums only.

    good for secondary

    After using Freedompop SIM over 2 yrs, I switched to pre-paid LTE plan w/ a premier service option. Now I can send and receive media files as well as voice mail etc. New SIM is using ATT LTE network better than before. When I travel to NE and IA, ATT has better coverage. Choosing data rollover service is a better option. Remember this is STILL BETA service as the company said. My complain is that I cannot save downloaded media. I can only watch photos on my phone screen, and that is it. One more, I suspect calling and text feature still consume the allowed data. But I just pay cheaper cheaper cost annually, not monthly than big wireless company.

    Best Price

    I've been using FreedomPop's basic free plan for over a year. Lately my data usage increased. Then I found this sim card. This is the best price so far I've seen for unlimited talk/text and 1GB data/month. One needs FreedomPop's app to make/receive calls and send/receive texts via wifi or data. AT&T's coverage is pretty good. So far I do not have major issue with making/receiving calls. Actually I like the app. Since there's no cellular signal in my office building, people have to go out to make a phone call using their cell phones. But I can make/receive calls through FreedomPop's app via wifi. I'm a very satisfied user. Also bought the sim cards for my family members.

    Fantastic deal if you're careful

    I've been a Freedompop subscriber for over two years now. They originally sold service on Sprint's network and we definitely saw issues related to the footprint of the service. The new LTE sims use AT&T's network that provides service over a much larger area. It really is 1Gbps of data and unlimited text and talk. The catch is that the voice and text are technically Voice over IP. If you're at home, your voice and texts will go over your wifi (and the quality is dependent on your home network's speed). I've got 30Mbps cable modem and get Fantastic quality at home. You should be fine with even a DSL connection through. When you're not at home or on wifi, those calls go over AT&T's network and have been great quality so far. I've found that on an iPhone, I get a better experience on my Freedompop phone using Hangouts and Google voice instead of the built in app. Hangouts integrates well with iOS and calls look/feel like normal phone calls. The problem with Hangouts is that your calls will count against your data (where they don't if you're using the Freedompop app). Freedompop has this integration with Android but is still working on it with iPhone. Be careful and read everything carefully when you work with Freedompop. They are still considering their service "Beta" and their tech support is not the greatest, but the price is incredible. I use this service for 3 of my 4 kids' phones.
