I have had this for over a year and it can go off, annoying if you want reliability. The inbuilt calling app isn't as good as csipsimple and you have to choose between the 2 or you get error 500 installing the second whichever way you install them. Just a thought though if you insert the sim in all your phones and install the app will it still work if you swap the sim over your wifi. Would like to straddle the 200 mins over multiple phones
I have had a problem with not being able to receive OTP SMS from my bank.
FreedomPop advertise 200MB free data allowance, but that's pretty misleading/deceptive. Unless you have auto-topup enabled, they block your data after once you reach 180MB. So you only get 180MB free each month, not 200MB.

I do use a FreedomPop SIM (because calls are free), but there are some disadvantages:
- Call quality is generally poor, often a call connects and one person can't hear the other, or sound is choppy/delayed.
- Sometimes I have to retry calling two or three times before it connects.

If you keep in mind the disadvantages and carry another phone with a normal SIM in (to make or receive calls when the FreedomPop one doesn't work), it's OK.
I believe the service as improved recently with new software.The problem I had was people were ringing me and the calls were not being received.I understand if you pay for premium service voice you can make calls without having a data connection connected already.Freedom usage and reception may be good.
Doesn't show a 99p sim for me but is in their 4g coverage area. Only from £4.99 up.

Basic 200 FREE
Activation Fee £0.99
Trio sim card £4.99

Shipping: Standard 2 to 5 days £1.99
Due Today (VAT Included): £7.97


A bit different to 99p.

great for data so so for everything else. People on here seem to expect to much from free.
agree with you
Not again FreedomPop.....This is not a deal and be cold as ice!
Been with them. Worst company I have seen! Paid £4.99 to transfer my number, took 17 days. Call qality was goog as long as Premium Voice was for first month, then they asked £1.99 a month for it. Cancelled. Voice calls then- mission impossible: lag of few seconds, delays and even on wifi. The further , the "better". Get charged £5 3 times for absolutely no reason. My account was in credit by £15, but for what??? Next week I just dialed my GP down the street and hear: "You are out of international minutes...." What??? OK, emailing FreedomPop for help(as no phone to call.Aparently phone number is for Premium users only....What the f+++?) Takes 11 days to get reply, which says to restart phone, as this might help.Ha ha ha...it doesnt.. Anyway, after 23 days, problem with "Out of international minutes" disapears by some sort of magic. But another problem aperas: nobody can reach me....Enough! Asking for PAC, which takes 4 emails and 19 days to get. After transfering number to Three, no one from FreedomPop can reach me. And only from FreedomPop numbers; is this revenge??? or incopetence???
Dear people, just dont bother with this company
are they a dodgy company
Just avoid these crooks unless you wanna trouble!

Absolutely useless, got it for my son, he hardly uses it to call anyone because he never gets connected to any calls! I tried ringing him holding his phone on my other hand, goes straight to answering machine but then gets a missed call notification after like a minute, ridiculous!
Please feel free to PM me, so I may assist with the issue at hand.
Even WITH Premium Voice, every time that I tried to make a phone call (with 3-4 bars of signal), it wouldn't connect.

Pay your fiver a month to a proper network that works if you want a mobile service.
I also have a problem with this company (bad signal and can't even connect to 3G)

don't bother with this company

Do not use this is just whatsapp and not real voice calls!

You have to pay extra for premium voice! All other networks normal voice calks are standard! You have been warned

I wish they would sort out my SIM as I still can't make outgoing calls after 2 months of back and forth emails to customer services, I wouldn't recommend. :(

the only way to fix this is to have the premium voice service switched on

normally this would cost you £1.99 a month BUT if you open up the messaging app then in the menu there is usually an option for a free '30 day' premium voice trial

What you then have to do is select this & you will suddenly be able to make calls again

Next you immediately have to cancel the trial so you dont start to get charged after the end of the trial - note that this is not in 30 days time but instead they apply the first charge at the start of your next billing cycle

Cancelling the trial immediately does not stop premium voice - that only happens at the start of the ext billing cycle

At the start of the next bill cycle you will lose premium voice & not be able to make calls again HOWEVER the menu option to start another trial should re-appear so you can do the process above again & again

If the menu option hasnt re-appeared then try clearing cach/data for the messaging app

IMO Freedompop gets a really raw deal on this forum - as just a free data SIM its pretty good AS LONG AS YOU DONT GO OVER YOUR ALLOWANCE & HAVE A 'EMPTY' PREPAID CARD REGISTERED AGAINST YOUR ACCOUNT - you can get 900mb free each month (200mb basic + 200mb from registering 20 friends + 5x 100mb given by 5 friends each month - where those 5 'friends' can be SIMS also owned by yourself)

The main issue with the free data allowance is that they can still charge you even if you only have the basic free service selected
because the system allows you to go over your allowance if it happens in a single usage session & then charges your registered card for the excess usage at 2p per MB

The phone service is bad but as a very low user Ive coped with it

Whenever a freedompop thread pops up user 'Rimi' ALWAYS comes on to roast the company so I would bear this in mind when reading his comments as their may be some sort of grudge or vested interest in him doing this - that said he does usually make factually correct criticisms about the service

I received my V7 phone today - FP "helpfully" open the sealed packaging and phone and insert the sim card for you.... initial impressions are that it is pretty slow - out of the box it has Android 6.0.1 and there is a software update available (September 2016 security update). The screen bezels are quite large and for some reason the back hard button is on the right instead of the left - the website picture is actually wrong - they seem to have mirrored the body and then superimposed a screenshot. There is quite a gap between the hard buttons and the bottom edge of the screen.

Recharging not too bad - took about an hour to fully recharge from 50% battery with a fast QC 3.0 charger (turbo charging is not available). Wifi is 2.4GHz only - no 5GHz support and the charging cable goes into the top of the phone not the bottom.

I am considering this as an upgrade for a relative's original Moto G due to the larger 16GB memory and ability to take a microSD card - will use it for a bit before deciding whether to keep it.

Now I have question to FreedomPop here. I came across this post(see below) on FreedomPop Blog and I just was shocked how misleading it is. It says...FreedomPop V7 comes with a free FreedomPop SIM complete with free voice, text and data included, as well as free WhatsApp usage... How it can be true? In prices of ordering, there is no option for FREE services, just free trial. OK, this can lure customers,hoping they will not cancel Premium 2Gb and will be charged, but....free WhatsApp usage-not a word of it on order form. Check screenshots attached.
I just hope that FreedomPop Agent will explain this.

I need a similar simply card for text only for burglar alarm cannot be 3 network though anyone got any ideas ?
Try googling "Meem Mobile"... They had £1 per month going on and it runs on the EE network.

I tried posting it last year but mods kept on deleting it... I wonder why!!


Anyway not bad for £12 per year in spare/emergency mobiles.

I have to second that, they have some sneaky ways to trick the unaware.
the service has improved since they started but the is some big bugs.
WARNING WARNING WARNING

I've just got a couple, they work ok, just you have to real tly try to turn off all the extras you will be charged for each month. If you google it there are posts showing you how to turn the stuff off. One of them took me ages to find on my own, a page full of big writing that you had to scroll down for 2 screens and there was the tiniest link hidden in the wording at the bottom of the screen in what looked like the footnote.
bigdman7

99p straight from freedompop website. make sure you cancel any premium voice or other addons or u will be billed automatically..!


2nd that... watch for wee add on charges.

You have to leave a card on file there or they will switch the sim off, I found, after three months, even though I was using the free data/voip.

Works very well to give the kids fee mobile service... and some pokehunting.... even with small data amounts.

i have used this and still do, it is very good ib my opinion. the big flaw is you must use the app in order to send and receive text messages but you can receive and make calls as normal if you have the sim card in the phone so i dont know why people are saying you have to use the app to make phone calls, the internet speeds are quite good and another good thing about freedompop is on the iphone app you dont need to have the sim in the phone, you can just login and make calls/texts off the app and have another sim in the phone and essentially have a dual sim phone
was temped into this a few months ago because the price seemed really good but save your time and stay far far away. This is a cancer of a company and what you think you're saving on paper will be washed away with hassle and hidden charges.

I've been using freedompop for three months, excellent value, but lots of texts don't send, you'll miss texts sent to you by others, call quality is very poor, and I haven't been able to make any calls for 36 hours. Have asked for my PAC :-( some things aaren't worth saving a couple of quid a month!
How can you say it's "excellent value" and then go on to say the service is basically $hite?
It isn't good value if your paying for something that doesn't work.

"Feel free to send me a Private Message should you need any assistance."
Thanks for the offer.
I think to regain confidence to convince people that there is not any sneaky way why not use the method where you could not charge people, unless they really mean it.
At the moment people will need to supply their full credit card detail and you could charge them anytime without the owner of credit cards realizing it. Or if they realize it is already too late as it happens a long time ago and fighting to get it back will just wasting their valuable time.
A few comes to mine:
- Payment through PayPal
- Payment using BACS (e.g Bank transfer)
- Or use like PAYG system, limit the basics service, people need to top it up when they need further services.
I have thrown mine to the bin I might want to get one again if I am sure there is no sneaky way of charging me.
Please explain the method used to convince customer there is no sneaky way of charging them.
Users are always more than welcome to downgrade their plans whenever desired. Now regarding another form of payment, we certainly accept PayPal. I have provided a link which will explain how to downgrade your account along with another which will elaborate more on PayPal. Please take a look at your convenience.

I've been with them as a second sim from the start. Voice not very good if it works at all. I always said texts with the app are ok but recently they've stopped working, wouldn't be so bad if you knew they weren't getting to the recipient. Data is as three so for me data is still good.
We offer Premium Voice which works off cellular network as opposed to VOIP and is offered for free with paid plans. I have provided a link which helps explains it's functions. Please feel free to take a look.

Not free, you need to pay the £5 'activation' fee.
...also as above you need to use their phone/messaging apps.
The activation fee is a one-time fee, however, the plan itself is free. Also, users may use the native dialer with Premium Voice service. I have provided a link which provides the plans we offer and another explaining how Premium Voice works. Feel free to have a look.

Just be aware. Unless you do not need to supply your credicard detail, avoid like a plague.
They have a sneaky way of charging you.
Other have pointed out
- Use a garbage app for messaging couldn't just send normal texts. So your phone will be blocked with their apps.
- the £5 'activation' fee. Before you even realize how useless they are

It's a great data service, but they'd be better off charging per minute for a proper voice service.
And I don't mean premium voice as that's only out going and bad data signals.

FreedomPop are terrible. All of the calls are handled like VoIP. Even in an area with full strength Three signal, calls just will not connect!
Take a look at the FreedomPop reviews online or even other users posts on HUKD before you think that this will be good value...
mk-donald
Agree with roflll. The free package - have one of their SIMs on free plan @ 200mins, 200 txts, 200MBs - in an old 3G capable phone (as FreedomPop uses Three data network) as a backup, but wouldn't like to rely on it at all. and certainly not to be paying for it!
doogan9
I tried it but never made a successful call - took me 3 emails and a phone call to cancel it.

We do offer VOIP operating services. However, we offer a new value added service called Premium Voice which allows you to use a cellular network connection for calls in weak signal areas. Ensures high-quality voice calls even when network connection is poor by switching seamlessly between FreedomPop voice and cellular voice. The link provided will help elaborate on how the service works.

Terrible company. I downgraded my account. Changed settings to no for automatic top up, but they
kept taking payments each month. First said it was an error then refunded, then they did it again the following month and have just found out they have done it again!

I can also say they took money off me after reducing to free tariff and removing everything I could.Voted cold

I'm sorry to read about the inconvenience this has caused on your end. Feel free to send a Private Message (PM) and I will gladly assist you.

personally I think freedompop gets an unfair amount of abuse on this website
if you only need a data SIM for a low usage tablet then freedompop is fine - you can get at least 900mb free a month i.e. 200mb basic + 200mb for 20 friends & then another 500mb if 5 friends give you 100mb each
the phone service is a complete pain in the **** though

Feel free to PM me and I will gladly assist you should you have any questions or issues with your account.

I was looking at this too but I think I read somewhere that you had to have mobile data to be able to use the call and message funtion
Not only data, but you must use FreedomPop messaging application to be able to send/receive texts and make/receive calls.

the phone service is a complete pain in the **** though - the only way I have been able to keep voice calls working after the first month is by repeatedly using & then cancelling the 'free premium voice trial' (you can use the trial more than once on the same SIM card) - without the trial the voice calls stop working for me after the first month

AVOID! This is worst of the worst.
-They uses VoiP, meaning all services provided by internet. 2-3s delay and POOR quality guaranteed!
-You need to use their app to send/receive texts and for calls too, unles you pay £1.99 extra a month for Premium Voice.
-Too many hidden charges
-No way to call 0845,0870 numbers-even you are happy to pay.
-No way to send txts to short numbers(like pay for parking,voting, etc.)
-No way to call international number(you have to buy International plan, but what if I want to make only few odd calls a year)
-No roaming (unless ordering Global SIM)
- Customer services non existent
- Number porting cost £4.99 ( no one else in the UK charges for porting number)
Just save yourself trouble .
They never charged me for porting my number in or out.
There forum is quite good at answering your questions if you cannot get though they helped me quite a lot when i had a few problems.


So now they do charge:

Does this free whatsapp work on the 200m 200sms 200mb sims if you already have one

I think no - it seems to be a different SIM - but once you have one, according to the Engadget article referred to earlier, you need to activate their apps and then get another 200 mins/200 texts/200MB data on top of the allowances on the SIM, so 300 mins/400 texts/400MB data?
I did not have a 'Whatsapp' Sim. I had a standard Freedompop one. It was rubbish.
The Global SIM with free WhatsApp data was "launched" in the UK on 01-Sep-2016.
https://www.engadget.com/2016/09/01/freedompop-whatsapp-sim-uk/

And, this was launched in USA on 17-August-2016.
http://www.techtimes.com/articles/174080/20160817/freedompop-launches-first-us-sim-with-unlimited-whatsapp-access-in-30-countries.htm


I can't comment on what you were using in UK 5 months ago ....... before this (free WhatsApp data SIM) was even launched anywhere in the world ... but it was not this service!!



Edited By: sushd on Sep 02, 2016 13:25
Yeah the coverage was terrible. Unfortunately the UK isn't ready for a solely data based voip network as the infrastructure is too patchy. I'm now on Tello which requires a 3G phone but uses normal networks so is always working!

Is free Whatapp coming to the UK as it is in Spain and USA?
Looks like it is here.
However for existing users (I am 1) have 2 buy a seperate sim card & use a different email address as it seems to bug when trying to use an existing one
Have some cold!
WORST OF THE WORST in the UK!!!
Save yourself trouble, don't even bother with it.
Is free Whatapp coming to the UK as it is in Spain and USA?
It won't work on windows phones or tablets either, will it and they can change prices at any time as well I believe? If they didn't keep your payment details I'd be more confident but would worry about them charging me for extras or price changes without my prior knowledge.
I have used FreedomPop for a few weeks and besides the occassional poor phone call quality/lag, everything has been fine. Most of my calls have been OK, I sometimes have to repeat myself, but can usually hear the other end fine, texts arrive/send like normal and there's the 200MB of 4G data. Not sure why it gets such bad press.

Wow, people paying almost a ton for 3 year old phones? WTF?
Better off buying a similarly priced new phone instead.
in slightly better news my £10 quidco from freedompop just became payable.

anthonywhite37 & manicmidlander - see my previous comments on obtaining a refund. It appears from what you have said that you tried to get your refunds from freedompop. Far better to apply to the credit or debit card under the chargeback scheme for purchase under £100. VAT should have been refunded and would be if you had claimed from the card company. Further if the phone or service was faulty, my credit card company told me it is not for you to send the phone back thus incurring postage costs - it is for the supplier to collect it. If they don't collect it by 6 weeks after you told them to, you can keep the phone!


Thanks. I started the charge back process but got my refund without having to do that.

Service runs on the THREE network
- so check your coverage and that your phone is 3G capable (if not a Smart Phone)
i.e.means you need 3G (voice and Data) or 4G service (Data only / fine for Viber, Skype etc)
After 1st month
FREE (always) option = "Basic 200" plan = 200 mins, 200 Texts, 200 MB
which is fine as a standby SIM.... or otherwise general low use

Calls between FreedomPop users also Free.

There is a top plan = unlimited Calls/text + 2GB data = £11.99 / month which for a 30 day contract is not bad.

As for iPad etc,
as with Almost ALL networks these are Phone not Tablet SIMS, so don't expect to get data for free Tethering or in a Tablet.



Edited By: arther2 on Jul 06, 2016 09:18
Have to use the data for the calls, no signal no calls and txts. I was with them a day before I cancelled.

Edited By: jacenj on Jul 05, 2016 21:05
be careful, I got one of these around Xmas and had it in my iPad at home and got hit with a data allowance charge when I went over the free limit even though I had dropped to the free limit

took it out and binned the sim when they told me it made no difference, they don't stop your access once the limit is reached
Free for one month only - don't forget to downgrade before the trial expires
By clicking Activate, you agree to be billed when your one-month free trial ends at normal rate of either £4.99/month or £8.98/month, depending if the optional Premier Service checkbox is selected. You may cancel all services and downgrade to the 100% Free Plan (200 Minutes, 200 Texts, & 200MB per month) at any time during your trial period to avoid a monthly charge. Your FreedomPop service will not begin until your device ships.

I wonder if UK USA will get the same as Spain eventually, unlimited Whats App data.
I got one of the free sims when they first came out to try it. If you have good Three coverage then it is an option as it uses VOIP for calls. At this price it is worth getting one and seeing if it works for you. They have an option for proper voice calls which would make it a much better option, I wonder if this is included with this offer?

So you could use the data in these countries without paying any more?
Does fp support 4g in the uk?
In those countries, where 4g network is available is it supported?
Any other countries to be added soon?
Service with this deal will only work in the UK. FreedomPop service connects to Three's 4G and 3G networks within the UK.

We do have an entirely separate Global Hotspot & Global SIM Card, which is not available through this deal. Unfortunately, the Global Hotspot & SIM Card are currently sold out, but we will make an announcement when it becomes available.

OK, so first of all price for this after one months trial will be £23.97 a month!
There is small print about charge of £13.98 a month for continued service. People be aware, these crooks makes money this way, by misleading adverts and hidden charges.
On this deal page I think it would be appropriate to stat price of £23.97 after one months trial,so everybody knows this.
Thre charges £25 for unlimited data,500 minutes and 3000 texts,so better than this dodgy FreedomPoop...http://i65.tinypic.com/zl6ble.png
This is misleading.
It's £3.99 for the premier service trial which I believe is for support and if you opt in then it's £9.99 + 3.99 = £13.98 after the trial perial ends.
It's NOT £9.99 + £13.98 as mentioned above.

yep that is how i read it too ^^
I think Rimi has completly miss read that part and if it is the same person on the FreedomPop forum i also stated there that i think s/he miss read it.

Are these phones unlocked?
The Galaxy S4 that is being offered in this promotion is meant for usage with FreedomPop. The device will be activated to our network once it has been shipped. However, you would be able to take the S4 elsewhere if you wish to cancel FP service.

Freedom2pop your service is crap its voice over data! Not woth it even if it was for free
I called some days back and asked because I wasn't getting calls through with the WiFi and data turned off (could make them but not receive them) and the adviser said it has to always be connected to the Internet so WiFi when available and data when not but if you do get calls or texts they don't affect you data limit at all. So currently I'm on a trial and £5 thereafter for 1.25k min, 1.25k text, 1.25GB data & premium voice included.
Freedom2pop your service is crap its voice over data! Not woth it even if it was for free
Recently tried Freedompop - the worst mobile experience ever! Callers complain that they can't hear me, calls often cut off after a couple of minutes, the app often crashes causing my phone ( Moto G ) to lock up completely. Have contacted customer services several times ( yes they do respond quickly ) but have been unable to resolve any of the issues.
