What is a Pre-Paid SIM card?
FreedomPop offers GSM phone service on a month to month basis, or though a pre-paid, pre-loaded SIM card. With a pre-paid SIM card, you purchase your talk, text and data plan for a full year (or 3 months) in one up front cost.
There are two ways to purchase one of our pre-loaded SIMs: in person (from stores like Best Buy and Target), or online at shop.freedompop.com.
SIMs purchased in stores
After you purchase a FreedomPop pre-loaded SIM card in store, you will be able to visit freedompop.com/activate to start your service. You will not be asked for any credit card information to complete your activation, because you have already paid for your plan in the store.
SIMs purchased online
If you purchase your pre-paid SIM card online, you'll put credit or debit card information into the checkout page, for a one-time only charge of your talk, text and data plan.
After your SIM card arrives in the mail, log into the FreedomPop account used to make the order and, in a separate tab, visit www.freedompop.com/activate and follow activation instructions.
Once your SIM card has been activated, insert it into a compatible GSM unlocked Android or iPhone device. Most phones have a SIM card tray that you will access using a SIM removal tool (or a paperclip). For help inserting your SIM card, click here.
Next, you’ll have to complete APN configuration settings. Click here to learn how.
