How to Get Free Talk, Text and Data on Sprint Via FreedomPop BYOD

131119-freedompop
FreedomPop launched its free phone service earlier this year, but it was restricted to a less than desirable handset. Now, FreedomPop has expanded its free talk, text and data service to include a bring your own device (BYOD) program, opening up a lot more options for people on a tight (or non-existent) budget.

As you may already know, the FreedomPop “free phone” service is really an MVNO off of the Sprint nationwide network, but not all Sprint phones are currently compatible with FreedomPop’s program. There are ten phones eligible for BYOD. They include the HTC EVO 4G, Samsung Epic 4G, Samsung Epic 4G Touch, Samsung Galaxy S III, LG Optimus S, Motorola Photon 4G, HTC EVO 3D, Samsung Boost Prevail, Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Samsung Nexus S 4G. That’s not too shabby.

This comes hot on the heels of news that Republic Wireless is carrying the Moto X, but chances are that you can find one of those older Sprint phones for less than the $299 Moto X asking price. And then you don’t have to pay for service, assuming you stay within the confines of the FreedomPop free plan. That includes 200 minutes, 500MB of data and 500 text messages. It’s not much, but it’s free.

Of course, you can upgrade to one of their paid plans too. I’ve been using the Photon 4G and Overdrive Pro for some free data, so you can complement the free phone service that way too.
