FreedomPop already provides its customers with international calling, domestic voice calls and text messaging and data. Now, the American wireless carrier mainly known for offering free voice and data services is debuting a brand new worldwide roaming product at a special offer price. Its Global 3-in-1 SIM card is targeted at mobile users who travel around the world a lot, but want to do away with paying roaming charges if they can help it. FreedomPop’s newest kit comes with a GSM compatible SIM card (ideal for regular, micro, and Nano SIM card sizes), as well as a free trial of the mobile operator’s Global Unlimited Talk, Text and 1 Gigabyte Data offering. On top of that, customers will also get a Premium Plus trial bundle, which comes with visual voicemail, usage alerts, monthly data roll over, and use of multimedia messaging service (MMS). The Global 3-in-1 SIM kit is a zero contract deal, and is made available for a price of $9.99, plus free shipping. The regular price for this SIM kit is at $15.
What makes FreedomPop’s new Global 3-in-1 SIM card so cool is that it will work with most unlocked GSM handsets out there, basically letting mobile users use their device in more than two dozen countries outside the United States. Customers can make or take phone calls and send or receive text messages over Wi-Fi, with FreedomPop’s plan making full use of countrywide 3G and high speed HSPA+ for cellular data. Merged with the wireless carrier’s Global Unlimited Talk, Text and 1 Gigabyte Data package, users can enjoy unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and a gigabyte of data when going to places outside America.
With FreedomPop, users have always been free to bring their own Sprint capable handsets to the “freenium” mobile operator’s basic mobile plans. However with the Global 3-in-1 SIM card now made available, owners of GSM handsets from AT&T and T-Mobile can take advantage of bring your own device (BYOD) options. It should be noted though that because FreedomPop’s Global 3-in-1 SIM card is a GSM only offering, users will not be able to pair the SIM with CDMA Sprint handsets, or Verizon Wireless devices that are not SIM capable.
But users better beware -- the Global Unlimited and Premium Plus trials are only made free for the first month. Beyond that, their account will automatically be charged for their Global Unlimited 1 Gigabyte plan and Premium Plus service.
