weanutweanut Posts: 309FreedomPop Newbie, FreedomPop Expert ✭✭✭
hi, my boyfriend is considering actually getting a smartphone, i thought we'd look into fp. looking at the zte promotion. does anyone know if the zte force is any good, esp for someone who has never owned a smartphone? also, what would the total cost w/tax & all be for the unlimited plan plus voicemail? thanks, liz

    I thought FP PROMOTED their free monthly service: 200min talk, 500txt, 5mb data. It is not available on the ZTE for some reason. Or the website is very poorly arranged. Also, I cannot look at other phone "products" if I login. clicking on a product returns me to my account page. And this has been true since I bought the phone months ago? Why is this still a problem.

    I hesitate to recommend freedom pop to friends (obviously no freebies for me here). because of the sketchy website and billing practices after the 30 day free premiym trial. And now, there is no check/uncheck box fo that when ordering.

    @njfulwider5 yes, I believe it has to ship first. I will downgrade him to unltd phone/text. do you think the 500mb will be enough? he likes to yak on the phone :) I know he probably uses at least 1000 min. a month, not a big texter but he does text. I don't think he'll use much data otherwise.

  • weanutweanut Posts: 309FreedomPop Newbie, FreedomPop Expert ✭✭✭
    @njfulwider5 I guess we can keep it the 1st month & see how much he uses. if there's a lot left over, i'll downgrade. thanks!

    Well, I have a question about the unlimited talk and texts only for 4.99/month comes with the promotion. Said, it needs WiFi hotspot, like in McDonald and Bestbuy, etc. I won't want to have to talk in public every time I call. So, the 4.99 unlimited calls and texts are not really for me, right?

    @Dan Sun You're able to use those unlimited minutes on your own WiFi router or cellular network if you wanted to.
  • weanutweanut Posts: 309FreedomPop Newbie, FreedomPop Expert ✭✭✭
    @ali doesn't that come w/500 mb data?

    @william thomas I have the free plan, it does include 200 free min, 500 free texts & 500 mb data. it works very well for me, I have wifi at home so I don't need that much data. just be aware-if you use 400 of your 500 mb your account will be frozen(that's a real pain, a lot of people don't know this). I've been using freedompop since march of last year, it actually is still in beta so they are constantly working out the bugs. trust me, there has been a lot of improvement in this time. you have to know how to deal with issues. these forums are really invaluable, please see njfulwider5's post FreedomPop 101: How to Use the Forum the freedompop pros are extremely helpful, administrators are able to get things done that the pros can't(the admins work for fp, the pros don't). I hope you will become comfortable with freedompop, I really love it.

    @njfulwider5 now, I'm pretty sure my bf will need more than 500 mb for all his yakking, I would probably be able to give more than 100-200mb as a freedomfriend, who's gonna give him the rest? :) thanks for that info btw, I didn't realize the 4.99 plan didn't include any data. can we pm on this till we or you or I figure it out? thanks, you're the berries!

    For just 'having' 10 friends, you get 500 MB more. Plus any gifting you may receive. Pop me a pm, I'll send you my 8 addresses. Njfilwider5 lists his on personal page. Click his icon to go there. Just type in the invites.

    Theoretical max is 500 free, 500 friends, and up to 500 gifting all per cycle. THEN you could sign up for stuff and earn more MB s. 1,500 MB = 1.47 GB. Getting gifts every month from friends can't be counted upon.

    I plan to have like 509 or so left than on day 0 give 100 to five friends. Now are frozen with only 5 unused. And I was generous to five people. Wait a day, rinse and repeat. I hope to never sweat the 100 MB 'wall'.

    @Elizabeth Merker
    I didn't know you only had a few freedom friends... :)
    @njfulwider5 I am an antisocial you know what :) ok, sounds like the 4.99 plan could be accomplished for his nibs. I'm about fried, back tmrw. thanks!

    I have 8 accounts...and 400 plus freedompop friends.....I can hook you up...and he'll get the other 500mbs

    just let me know if you need them...

  • weanutweanut Posts: 309FreedomPop Newbie, FreedomPop Expert ✭✭✭
    @Rich Sias (16th) ok, didn't know that. is that per month? will check in tmrw, thanks so much! liz
