    @gadgethome Hey there, thanks for testing out FreedomPop UK Beta! Your SIM should arrive within 1-2 weeks from the date of purchase :)

    Day 3 mine is showing as shipped. So if that's true it should come Monday or Tuesday.
    Billing cycle starts ~ 1st of month

    @ritson These SIMs are shipping from Los Angeles, USA!

    thanks everyone for the feedback.

    Shipping SIMs from the US to UK is not a viable or sustainable proposition. If FreedomPop are serious about establishing a foothold in Europe then this will need to be sorted! Luckily there are many outfits who offer local drop shipping - including Amazon....

    You are joking, right? If not why is the packaging the SIM arrives in got a UK return address and send royal mail first class?

    Oh - and why does the Order Status page show 'Device Allocated' and 'Kitting' - for a SIM Card order? What is going on here? Most UK Providers are able to drop ship a SIM from a distribution centre for next day delivery - so what is different about a FreedomPop UK SIM?

    Still waiting for mine to arrive probably going through the scenic route or has gone astray, I ordered mine on September the 15th.

    Mine still says Device Allocated - does it actually move to shipped when its shipped ? For those with a SIM how long was it from order to receiving ? Cheers

    As of Oct 1st still no SIM, ordered it on September the 15th, emailed someone in the Alpha team but my email is ignored. Shoddy to say the least !

    Exactly a week for me. Arrived this morning (Friday 02 Oct) after ordering on Friday 25 Sep. Last night, my FreedomPop account showed that my SIM had been dispatched via Fedex. I feared a lengthy wait from the U.S., but didn't it just turn up this morning via Royal Mail. I suspect they haven't updated their message for the UK. The instructions provided with the SIM were very clear. I popped it into my OnePlus One phone, switched it on, and enabled data. Bingo. The app clearly shows how many minutes, texts, and data are left, and I'm pleased to observe that even though data is enabled (as well as WiFi), it is strictly using WiFi while that is available. It has dawned on me that FP will only use the data connection as a last resort. It makes financial sense for them to route everything via WiFi while it is available. Very clever, FP.
    Monthly billing cycle starts on day 3

    Mine arrived today. Five days. The status didn't advance to 'shipped' until after I received it.
