There is little denying that the mobile landscape has evolved dramatically over the last few years, as both traditional carriers and prepaid operators have begun focusing on more aggressive plan pricing. While prices have gone down all across the board, buying a phone and paying for monthly service can still be a pretty costly affair, but thankfully FreedomPop offers an alternative. FreedomPop is the country’s only 100% free mobile phone service, offering up free voice, text, data, and even free international calling to over 50 countries.
The free plan comes with 200 voice minutes, 500 texts, and 500MB data every month with no costs beyond buying a phone. For those that need more, there are premium options including a $10.99 plan with unlimited voice and text and the same 500MB data. There’s also the $19.99 plan with the same unlimited talk and text, but 1GB of data. FreedomPop additionally offers the “Premium Plus” service as an optional perk, bringing visual voicemail, premium voice quality, wireless tethering, data rollover, and support for MMS (picture/video messaging).

As you can see, FreedomPop’s service offers a lot for very little (or even nothing), but what about the cost of getting started? Right now FreedomPop is offering the Motorola Moto E (2nd gen) in certified pre-owned condition for just $49.99. Not only do you get the phone, but you get a one-month free trial of the Unlimited Talk, Text, & 1GB data plan, which can be switched over at any time to the 100% free plan. That’s $49.99 for what is valued at around $249.98. Yes, the phone you get is in pre-owned condition, but it has been thoroughly checked by FreedomPop and comes with a 30-day money back guarantee and there are no contracts so you can cancel service at any time (or switch to free, as already mentioned)
As for the Moto E (2nd gen) specs? The Moto E is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 with 1GB RAM and offers 8GB storage with microSD support. Other specs include a 5MP main cam, a VGA front cam, a 4.3-inch display with a resolution of 540 x 960, a big 2390 mAh battery, and Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
This latest bundle could be perfect for those looking for an extremely low cost (or free) phone service option, as well as an entry-level phone that should provide a reasonably solid Android experience. Anyone planning on picking this one up? Let us know in the comments.
