The service is terrible despite me living in a "covered" area Company took money off my debit card when my service is suppose to be 100% free I read through all the small print and made sure I turned down all add-ons and still got a charge on my card Its really hard to contact freedompop If I could do it all over I would have not purchased three of these phones Upset

Oh, I am not at all satisfied with the FreedomPop service - VOIP & WiFi, when you can get it. Calls between my wife and me were all rat scratch and either couldn't hear the other; or the Kyocera Hydro 8 - very power hungry, you must recharge it almost nightly. The phone constantly re-registers, and constantly warns the user that a data network cannot be found. A friend who recommended the phone says his wife uses it and it working perfectly for her. I'm in the process of exchanging our two phones in hope that two new/ refurbished will work as advertised. When the phones find the network, calls to and from everyone besides my spouse are crystal clear. I would say that a weakness with its scheme is that both phones are using the same VOIP network area. ???

Phone itself was in excellent condition. However, the FreedomPop call and text service is terrible. It only works when I'm connected to a WiFi access point. When I'm out on the road and the phone is using cellular data, I don't receive calls or texts, making several associates very irate with me. When I finally get indoors and connect to WiFi, I get a flood of missed call messages and texts. I contacted customer service who advised me to go into settings and update the phone's profile and PRL, which I tried several times with no success. I still can't use this device as a cell phone... I have to be indoors, hooked to a WiFi signal to talk and text. May as well stick with Skype.....

Ok, first understand that this is free service provided by Freedom Pop and that all calls and texts are sent via VoIP (if you are not sure what VoIP is, you should research first.) I have two kids ages 11 and 12 and have purchased two Freedom Pop phones for them - for their needs this is perfect! The cheapest standard plan that I could find was $30 a month for unlimited everything with another carrier - I didn't want a $60 phone bill each month for my two kids! When using Wifi, everything works as it should. When using data, text messaging (which my kids primarily use) works without issue. Phone calls do connect, however, are difficult to hear based on location (we live in LA and coverage is decent). The biggest challenge is limiting data use. I really had to take some time to figure out how to limit this so my kids would stay within the 500 MB allowance. The obvious answer is to use Wifi whenever available, however, you can't disable data if you want the phone and text messaging to work when not connected to Wifi. The key is to disable background data on most apps so that they only update when connected to Wifi (be sure you don't disable background data for the Freedom Pop messaging app - if you do, you won't receive incoming texts!) Once I figured this out and configured properly, both of my kids stay under the free plan allowance of 500 MB and can keep data on so that phone and messaging work! Last comment - on three occasions Freedom Pop has billed me for features that I did not sign up for. On all three occasions, I contacted customer service and the charges were reversed (although the respond time varied significantly from one day to two weeks). My suggestion is to keep an eye on your account via Freedom Pop's online account access. You can clearly see which services you are subscribed to and what you are being billed for. All in all I highly recommend Freedom Pop to those individuals who understand how their service works and remember that it is a free service! Go Freedom Pop!

The back cover of my phone doesn't fully cover it. The call quality is a little bad, but it's hearable.
