    new FreedomPOP (GSMA) free plan SIM spotted at target

    Agree. The manual renew process sucks, but it could be worse and, optimistically could get better.

    FreedomPop "Walmart" Free Plan (300 min / 1000 texts / 100 MB for $0/month) - Info & Discussion

    They promised to send me a new sim but never did. At first they could not get my Target sim to activate - I thought it was the sim cause the sim's access point settings did not match what FP's website said they should be. Eventually someone there did get sim working.

    new FreedomPOP (GSMA) free plan SIM spotted at target

    Wondering if anyone using 100/100/100 sim plan is paying the $1/mo voicemail fee, and still having the inactive/suspended account issue at renewal? If you pay one dollar per month for voicemail, then account is no longer free right - so hopefully/maybe it will automatically renew like my...

    FreedomPop "Walmart" Free Plan (300 min / 1000 texts / 100 MB for $0/month) - Info & Discussion

    Which app is using the 20mb - turn it off. Yea, 100mb is not much but for $0 it is still 100mb more than anyone else, plus includes minutes and texts(can also buy 100mb for $2 if needed). TextNow has essential data though and maybe my next option. Still, I'm holding out with FP cause I've...

    FreedomPop "Walmart" Free Plan (300 min / 1000 texts / 100 MB for $0/month) - Info & Discussion

    Come to think of it, I did ask chat-bot about this issue giving my account info, then unsuccessfully asked chat after hours for a "live person". Next day plan status was changed from "suspended" to active with minutes reset to 100/100/100,, so maybe chat is linked to a new "ask only, please...

    FreedomPop "Walmart" Free Plan (300 min / 1000 texts / 100 MB for $0/month) - Info & Discussion

    Hoping you're correct and my current 100/100/100 plan lives on for 10 more years. Yet, with 700,000 lines FP is one of the more popular MNVOs with its parent company RedPocket adding an extra 200,000 lines. Factor in that the ACP (Affordable Connectivity Program) is nearly out of funds, one...

    FreedomPop "Walmart" Free Plan (300 min / 1000 texts / 100 MB for $0/month) - Info & Discussion

    Seems like FP is having problems implementing the new monthly "manual renewal" procedure. Probably some greenhorn underpaid over-worked software analyst ironing out all the kinks..

    FreedomPop "Walmart" Free Plan (300 min / 1000 texts / 100 MB for $0/month) - Info & Discussion

    LOL, no kidding. At least, the FP customer reps are friendly. Must just be me, but for 10 years I've had great FP service and saved hundred of dollars. Last month I lost my original sim and had to get a new sim card/plan. Based on my past FP experience I'm assuming once I get this new setup...

    FreedomPop "Walmart" Free Plan (300 min / 1000 texts / 100 MB for $0/month) - Info & Discussion

    WOW, same thing happened to me except I did not call FP at any time. All my data, minutes and texts renewed sometime today. No clue what happened but all is good now. If have some free time will call FP and see if they can explain why service went down for a day - so hopefully this does not...

    FreedomPop "Walmart" Free Plan (300 min / 1000 texts / 100 MB for $0/month) - Info & Discussion

    Last month I paid $4.99 at Target to replace a lost sim card. Yesterday FP SUSPENDED my account and it can't be renewed. I now have no phone service unless connected to my WiFi - THIS SUCKS! Been with FP for 10 years now and hoping this is a software glitch and free plan still exists. --If...

    new FreedomPOP (GSMA) free plan SIM spotted at target

    Just noticed on my first renewal date all minutes, texts, and data zero'd out, fortunately I was still able to use wifi on my phone. I could only renew from the app using wifi (could not renew from my computer). My card was remembered. Three digit security code on back of card did have to be...

    new FreedomPOP (GSMA) free plan SIM spotted at target

    Forgot to turn off data and ran through 70mb in about a second -doh:mad:. So turned off data usage for almost every single bleeping app except google voice and native phone dialer. Also set monthly data limit on my phone to 90mb so should not be possible to ever go over 100mb limit ever again...

    new FreedomPOP (GSMA) free plan SIM spotted at target

    I thought the same thing but even if I set GV as you say above, my minutes are deducted using native dialer, so I'm sticking with GV for wifi calls since can't get "WiFi Calling working on my Pixel 3 Verizon phone.

    At least we are on the same page now. The folks over at Android Police can explain the pros and cons better than we can. If anyone is really interested here's the link for the scoop: https://www.androidpolice.com/disable-wifi-calling-tutorial/ Update: both make free WiFi calls (that's what's...

    new FreedomPOP (GSMA) free plan SIM spotted at target

    Good info, thank you Paul Crawhorne, for correcting my confusing terminology (WiFI Calling vs VoIP). You really know your stuff. What threw me on minutes being deducted using the Google Voice app is that by default GV makes all calls using cellular, so you have to change previously mentioned...

    new FreedomPOP (GSMA) free plan SIM spotted at target

    UPDATE to UPDATE: Still can't use WiFi calling on main phone app; However, I can now finally use my new used phone to make free WiFi calls by using Google Voice. There's a setting in Voice when making calls to display your FP number or your Voice number. Setting it to Voice stops minutes from...

    new FreedomPOP (GSMA) free plan SIM spotted at target

    UPDATE: FB says they enabled WiFi calling on my account, but still unable to get working on my Pixel 3. There's a toggle in mobile settings on my phone to turn on WiFi Calling but it won't take, just says "unable to activate". FP rep said wifi caliing works on GSPA phones if phone is...

    new FreedomPOP (GSMA) free plan SIM spotted at target

    First snag encountered on my new free 100/100/100 account: Had a long winded phone call that unexpectedly used up all my minutes. About a minute before call was disconnected, I heard a loud siren like tone. Thought I was using WiFi but apparently not. Purchased 100 minutes for $2 shortly...
