Can't get a deal better than this: FREE 4G LTE Internet service!
Alex Wong
Yeah, that's just not going to go for free and is why FreedomPop's hotspots with 3G fallback charge a monthly fee for any service.
Yu-Jin Chia
This is something which I would definitely recommend for everyone who wants to online all the time at a cheaper cost.
Great Product

I bought this from Gizmodo when they were having a 1 day sale where I got this for a measly $30. I planned to use it as an emergency data plan for when my phone ever gets close to getting over -- $30 seems fair for that! So I buy it, activate it, and proceed to log on to the website so that I can "downgrade" to the FREE 500MB/month plan (by default, you are on some promotional rate that costs money). When I tried to downgrade, I got a popup saying that since I was on a promotional rate, I had to call a special number to downgrade instead of just being able to do it online. Thanks, how convenient.

No big deal I thought, I'll just call the number. I have lunch from 11am-12pm at work M-F, and their phone line is only active on weekdays until 5pm (I'm generally not even home by then). So lunch is the only time I can call to downgrade. I follow the automated instructions, and am put on hold for 45 MINUTES. LITERALLY. I decide to try again the next day. 45 MINUTE WAIT, AGAIN. I am sitting there eating my lunch, listening to this god awful 'on-hold' music for 45 minutes straight. I give up and think it's bad luck, and decide to try again the next day. I am put on hold for 45 minutes again (not exaggerating, try it yourself), and realize that it must be impossible to actually reach them. I then use the option of pressing "1" to have a representative call you back... and you can be damn sure I was watching my phone like a hawk to make sure I didn't miss there call because the days were running out before I'd be charged that "promotional" rate.

Finally they call, I pick up, and they downgrade me to the FREE plan after trying to convince me otherwise. Now, here I am about 3 months later, and I am billed $3.99 for "FreedomPop Speed Plus"? What the actual F?

HOW TO GET IT SET TO $0 A MONTH (FREE):

I ordered this from Amazon. When it's delivered, you get a Quick Start Guide. In the light blue bubble on the paper, it says that if you didn't get it directly from FreedomPop, like me, you get 2 options:

1. Activate your device online
2. Activate your device by calling

Do NOT activate it online. Activate by calling.

If you're interested to know why, read on. If not, skip to the next paragraph. By default, the free trial is picked in bright green. You can get over this by clicking the shaded out 500 mb plan all the way to the right, which is the truly free one. HOWEVER, when you get to checkout, you notice it has forced you into what's called "FreedomPop Premier." You cannot remove it from your shopping cart. It's free for 30 days, but then you pay $25 in advance every 3 months (at about $8 per month). Avoid the headaches of trying to cancel and trying to get your money back by not getting FreedomPop Premier in the first place.

Call 888-701-1353, Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm. If you can help it, do not call during lunch hour. EVERYONE calls during lunch hour, so you have to wait hours! I called at 9am and only waited 2 minutes.

Tell whoever picks up that you want to activate your device. They'll transfer you to a sales rep. See the video for the rest of the directions. It's a recording of me setting up my device after receiving it from Amazon and before turning it on for the first time. Just pause the parts in the video with text on them. Sorry that they're fast, I wanted the video to be around 5 minutes. I also apologize that it is a recording of a recording. After working hard to edit my original screen recording on wevideo, I couldn't download it unless I bought the application.

Great service and best value for money if you need a 4G hot spot.
Cons: This hot spot supports only 4G. Therefore it simply does not work when 4G is not available.

I have been using the hot spot for more than a year, I am extremely satisfied. The hot spot is used at work place where my cellphone signal (T-mobile) is weak and don't want to mess up with company WIFI. The speed is fast enough for my iPod touch to stream stock quotes. During the year of service, the hot spot only experienced less than 5 time outages.

I also have a Samsung S II on Freedompop phone service, use it as backup phone. No issue with phone call or message. The most complained battery drain issue is improved in the latest Message app. I can get about 5% per hour.

I've had this device since June and honestly I haven't paid a penny, excluding the device cost. When and if you apply for this service make sure that you do not sign up for all the small things like data rollover or faster speeds etc. This is a great service and for everyone that is complaining about getting charged you need to be careful that you turn it off when your not using it ! Great Service!

WARNING - this gadget runs on Clearwire's WiMAX, which is being shut down in 2015. Freedompop says this device won't work on the replacement Sprint LTE network. So in a few months, the device will be completely useless.

In major cities it works great, I can comfortably surf the net for the basic materials. yelp, Facebook, email, chat should be ok. However I find the signal to be weak/not connecting when going out of the city a bit. If you look at the coverage map, imagine the strongest signal area, that's where you get coverage. Anything less than strong signal is probably not going to work.

Oh calling to get yourself downgraded to free data take a bit of work. They discourage this.
