There were as a time when paying massive amounts for your phone bill was a reality that you simply had to put up with, but thankfully more aggressive carrier pricing and the growth of cheaper prepaid services has helped drive costs down significantly. But what if you are looking to save even more? Enter FreedomPop.
For just $19.99 a month, the MVNO offers unlimited talk, text, and data. For $10.99 you can still get unlimited talk, text, and 500MB data. Still too expensive? FreedomPop offers a free plan that gives you 200 voice minutes, 500 texts, and 500MB data every month at no cost.
If you are interested in jumping in with FreedomPop, right now they are offering up the Samsung Galaxy S3 for just $89.99 with one month of Unlimited Everything included for free (with the option to switch to the free or cheaper plan after the month is up).
The Samsung Galaxy S3 may be several years old now, but it’s still a pretty solid phone for those looking for a backup line, or even for a kid, elderly parent or grandparent, or anyone else in your life that needs a basic smartphone with cheap or free phone service. As a refresher, the GS3 is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 with 2GB RAM, 16GB storage with microSD, an 8MP main cam, 1.9MP front cam, a 4.8-inch 720p display, and a 2,100mAh user-replaceable battery.
Anyone planning on picking this one up? Have any creative ideas on what this could be used for — a ‘home phone’, an office line, for the kids? Let us know in the comments.
