FreedomPop debuts $4.58 unlimited calling, messaging plan

Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) FreedomPop has rolled out a $4.58 rate which is essentially half its former price. Indeed, you can take advantage of the plan which allows for unlimited calling and unlimited texting. What’s the catch? FreedomPop operates on Sprint’s CDMA and WiMAX networks and utilizes only a few, outdated smartphones. Specifically, the carrier sends voice calls over the data network (VoIP). For those of you who can’t be bothered with a monthly bill, FreedomPop provides a free plan of 200 voice minutes, 500 texts, and 500MB of data.

Joining the carrier’s handset roster this week, the Samsung Galaxy S II, can be had for $169.99. Yep, conceivably, this is all you might spend over the life of the plan. FreedomPop, for its part, expects to roll out LTE coverage later this quarter which is when we expect new devices to debut.
