It looks like FreedomPop is upgrading everyone to a Premium Voice plan.
The report comes from a user, who posted on HowardForums. According to the post, FreedomPop is sending out an email to concerned legacy free plan users. The post also shares that you will need to cancel or switch your plan before May 1, 2021 or you will automatically be switched to a $4 paid plan.
The email reads:
“We hope you are enjoying your FreedomPop service and want to inform you of some upcoming changes to our free plan.
In order for us to continue passing on the best value to all of our subscribers, we need to make changes that will have an impact on those enjoying our current free tier.
Don’t worry, FreedomPop will keep a free tier! But recent rate changes on our data network provider, together with our superior buying power on our largest underlying carrier, make a free offering only viable on our Premium network going forward.
For those who wish to continue receiving 100% free talk, text, and data, you must upgrade to a Premium SIM by May 1, 2021. With FreedomPop Premium, you get true cellular voice, text, and data - no app required! This means you can experience FreedomPop’s amazing value while using your phone as it was meant to be used. Upgrade today at FreedomPop.com.
If you do not migrate by May 1, 2021, your account will be automatically enrolled into the Essential Plan which offers 350MB and 200 minutes / 200 texts each month for only $3.99/mo.”
