Does anyone have a link for the FREEDOMPOP app that supports dual SIM phones that lets you use a normal SIM without taking over the standard contacts and messaging apps?

Never had a problem myself and this is a great offer!

Lucky lucky, god help you if you ever have a problem or one morning you wake up to your number having been "lost" and they throw their hands up and can do nothing, even try to blame you for it happening.
I don't think there is even any course for complaint as it's hard to identify who they really are.
The temporary number they gave me to replace my personal number of 14 years they "lost" was quite memorable but I made the mistake of attempting an authorised port out of the service.
I now have an EE sim where I can call out from my ported FreedomPop "temporary" number just can't receive calls or texts on it.
EE have now spent 10 days trying to get the porting problem resolved with freedompop to no avail, they say they have never had this difficulty porting a number before.
So if your willing to take the gamble on Freedompop, treat it as it deserves to be treated, in the same category as Vectone, a burner SIM which you can live without the moment something goes wrong and don't make the mistake of treating them like a legitimate alternative to even the TPO's or ID mobiles out there.

Dreadful network, if you can even call it a 'network'...

Thanks ordered this

the phone number its still in to my account but i cant recover my phone number!

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.

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???

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 wish they would sort out my SIM as I still can't make outgoing calls … 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

Yes it's unlocked.

Can I use the handset with a different network SIM cards? or it is mandate requirement that it only works on FreedomPop SIM? Thanks

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 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.

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.

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

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?

The Whatsapp sim was linked off the UK home page:

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.

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!

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.

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.

Summary

Loads o data for FREE :)

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.

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" 5th Jul 2016

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?
