Meh...

I live in an area where there there isn't any WiMax coverage, but there is 3G and LTE coverage. The only LTE hotspot FreedomPop offers is $200.00, so no thanks. I'll just stick with my 3G/WiMax Overdrive Pro for now on the 5.00 plan for 3G access.

No one should have wimax coverage, I thought sprint decommissioned it?

For rural users on fixed wireless, might be good

I don't know of anywhere else you can get unlimited 3g for $20 bucks, of course Sprint's coverage in the rural areas isn't great. Could be a good complimentary service to something like Verizon's Home Fusion and At&t's service.

Re: Cant sign up...

Interesting!!! So it appears to be 35$ for unlimited(4g 3gig). Not sure what it goes down to after that, but 35$ is more than 20$ but also a fantastic deal. Why have I never heard of these guys? Also its 10$ for a sim card but you can bring your own device...

Republic Wireless

Honestly if you want Sprint 3G and/or LTE you are better off using Republic Wireless. They only offer two phones but they are pretty good phones and of course have the advantage of using wifi for a call if you have little to no coverage at your house. The 3G plan is $25 a month for Unlimited Calling/TXT and 5 GB of 3G data, the $40 plan is the same plan but gives you 5 GB of LTE data. Personally you can't beat there no contract Moto X for $300 and $40 a month for Unlimited Calling/Texting plus 5 GB a month of LTE cellular data.

AT&T Mobile Share

With AT&T's new Mobile Share plans that include tethering, the need for FreedomPop for me is no longer needed. I was only using it occasionally when the Internet at the house was out, but now I can just tether my phone and get the same faster speeds.

No MMS may be a deal-breaker for some

guess they don't ever want my business


FreedomPoP nonworking qualification widget
What's one of the first things we see on their home page? Why, a "see if it's available in your area" widget of course. But if they're unwilling to take perfectly valid inputs, I guess I can't depend on how else they'll be screwey. No, thanks, I'll pass.

They have a $15 a month plan that has unlimited talk/text and 1gb internet. The thing is you make calls and texts through there app which is voip but dont count towards your usage

Does Sprint throttle MVNOs

Some customer service rep. told me that Sprint throttles MVNOs.

Sprint itself sucks in the Bay area, (I have not found anybody that gives consistent 4G LTE), so I would prefer paying less to them for the same bad service but does it suck even more for FreedomPop?

It may not be programmed to deny + gmail addresses, however it just may not me programmed to accepted characters in the email address. Who else does this?

The point is, if they can't be bothered figure out what constitutes a perfectly legal address, I probably don't want to do business with them. Addresses should not be rejected because they contain unconventional characters, or unexpected amount of domain labels (it's actually been suggested that the domain for my email, because it's a three label domain under .us, is not acceptable), or whatnot. My suggestion would be to follow the RFCs and not some corrupted notion of them. It may be a bit more complex than this, but anything to the left of "@" is domain-specific and should be neither tampered with nor interpreted. It should be an opaque token which is passed unaltered. There are extremely few restrictions on what that may contain, and I'm reasonably certain "+" is not one of those prohibitions. Based on that I'm also annoyed at servers which have been programmed to "think" that upper-casing the LHS is acceptable.
