Even if there are incremental improvements, corporate attitudes don't change. You're getting what you're paying for.

no that's not how it works. Basically they want you to be using wifi or 4G service to route the phone calls. If you don't have that service then they will route to call to the regular sprint towers. But sometimes your calls will go through with data and if you are on slow 3g the call may not be clear.

CMIIW, I believe the key difference between this and say, Republic is that even when they route you over sprint, it still goes over DATA. So it's 100% VoIP, wifi or not.

Correct.
I just spoke to them, it is over Data all the time.
It is a refurbished Evo that they formatted to their 'system'. They will be introducing new phones after the beta testing, but no clues as to which or when. Once they end the beta stage the 'Free' plan will be unavailable except for those who already have it.
Edit: The rep said he believes the phone has a sim card, but its CDMA so it won't work overseas.

Got the phone two weeks back, the casing was nicked and scratched but the screen was new. The battery power is unbelievably terrible although I'm hoping its just the actual battery and not the phone. The service is pretty good in flatbush and rockaways without any dropped calls although there seems to be unnoticeable lag . The web isn't the fastest but it serves its purpose. Overall it was well worth the $0 a month charge especially since I saw the price for the phone was refunded for some reason.

if your referring to the overdrive or photon,the photon only connects to 4g while the overdrive can also get 3g. Although the overdrive looks like it has more features ( lcd screen with connection name, wifi strengh, battery...) I was told by them that if I have good 4g WiMAX service in my area then the photon would be better for me.

can you or someone in short explain how this freedom hot spot works? I purchase a hot spot from them for 59.99 and then get 500 MB a month for free or 2GB for 17.99 and then all I do is turn on my wifi on my phone and I can use internet for free and this thing doesn't need to be hooked up to anything?

The above link is working.  Comes out to $21.79 w/tax.
What I don't understand is: "100% Free Internet For Life!" At the bottom it states: "Enjoy our best services included in the premium package for 30 days at zero cost. After your free trial ends, if you do not choose to cancel, a Premier monthly plan will start and your credit card will be charged the $8.99 monthly fee. You can cancel anytime online or via phone." So, what's free?  If I cancel "Premier" then I get what?  It's not really clear what details are associated with "Premier" and what's associated with basic.  Maybe this page provides more details: http://www.freedompop.com/account/plans.htm Anybody sign up & cancel Premier?

Freedom pop gives all customers 500mb of free Internet a month, is great for traveling and in case your Internet goes down.  I have had this peace for close to a year now and I am happy with it.  Although you have to make sure not to go over your set amount because that's where they make their money.  But there is an option in your account setting to make it does not automatically give more Internet when you come close to your end amount.  Make sure to check it.

it might be a good substitute for ones home internet service depending on your usage. I use over 40GB/month, so not for me, but anyone can check the metered usage on their router and switch and save.
