Ratings and Reviews
From Good to Garbage
I’ve been using FreedomPop since 2015 and at the time I found it to be a great free service. You could get up to 1GB of data by adding friends and the app was good enough to send the occasional text or phone call. Once I got rid of my Sprint phone and went to the LTE Sim everything went downhill. The AT&T service is much worse, at the time none of the services I was paying for on the Sprint plan would work with the LTE Sim, and you don’t get as much free data. It didn’t really matter since I mainly only use the service on my iPad when I’m not around my phone or WiFi but most recently I noticed I no longer get the extra 500MB of data from having friends and now only get a measly 250MB and if it’s still the way it used to work then you can’t even use the data once you go lower than 100MB which makes the data all together useless. In recent updates I also noticed the app never rings when I get a call, I only get a notification afterward saying I missed the call and usually the call quality is bad, which it used to not be. Considering it seems they are doing everything to push all of their free users onto a paid plan (which are all horrible deals for the money) I’m glad I switched to a much better prepaid company for my phone and I’m not even sure I want to keep their sim in my iPad for the 250MB of free data which is all but good enough to update one app or scroll through a feed for about 30 seconds. Sad!
It works but improvement should is needed
I have the $49/year plan and at this time just for work purposes to call in meeting and backup phone when we travelling. Voice quality is good over the app or premium voice text is responsive too, although some maybe delayed in receiving. Since it used app, it works pretty much like textnow or google hangouts(when integrated with google voice). When you install the app in 2 phones, all the history only relates to that particular phone, same with text. Meaning it doesnt work globally. If you start a text from phone 1, half way of conversations you switch to phone 2, phone 1 wont see what you replied from phone 2, same with call history. You make/receive a call on phone 1, that history wont shot on phone 2 app so its not completely talked across many devices. Google hangouts tmobile’s digits and textnow is better at this. Also, adding block numbers only work with contacts, not just any numbers you can add freely and if you have 2 numbers to block, you have to completely close the app after adding the first one then enter another after you reopen it. Phone quaility, however, is very good over wifi and cellular, either using AT&T network with its own freedompop sim or Sprint network when installed on other phone i have.
Great and affordable app ideal for oversea
However merchants such as Home Security Companies or Banks are not able to send texts to me in order to alert me of a security breach or to verify my identity to allow credit card purchases which is really annoying. I receive all texts sent from cell phone without problems either SMS, MMS or iMessages. One great feature when travelling oversea is that I keep receiving on my phone all my phone calls to my US number although I am using a local SIM card and all calls to my foreign local number on the same phone. As long as I am connected to internet either through WiFi or foreign data cell provider I can also place phone calls in the US with no international roaming charges and with my US phone number showing on recipient caller ID. At the end when travelling oversea it is like having one local phone in the foreign country and my US phone as if I was still in the US, all in one phone. It’s a great feature that FreedomPop should advertise! Also visual voicemail transcription is working very well and allows me to interact from oversea with the US as if I was in the US and at no extra cost. Love it!
