What's the top up amount required to downgrade the plan to free?
There is no hidden fees or other top up amounts to downgrade to the free account I received those SIMs for free as well as a power bank and a selfie stick and as soon as I used up the first month I downgraded to the free plan and had it ever since ,I must have had two accounts already open for around a year or more.

   Now if you don't cancel your 2 gigabyte plan after the first month they're going to charge you the fee for the 2GB plan so make sure to downgrade your plan and even should they accidentally charge you you just call them up and they remove the charge no problem I had to remove the charge two times as I forgot to change the plan.
 And as usual keep an eye on your credit card to make sure they're not charging you as they accidentally upgraded your account.

I wouldn't advertise this product if I haven't used it myself.

And special for @Davidthebest here's a picture of the free plan.

I use them as well, and it is completely free as long as you cancel any service they add on. It could be tricky so make sure you get them all. Also, there are ways to get more data even on the free plan, sharing with friends and other offers.

Enjoy the first month free and try to remember to downgrade asap.
 You can see the billing and all in your account, so you will know when it's time to cancel.
 And in the worst case you can call the CS reps which are very helpful and they will refund you the money and downgrade to the free account, you will need to call to downgrade if im not mistaken.
 Tell me how it goes and hit that like button if it works out.. :)

After your free trial is over downgrade to basic plan (which is free), AND downgrade the services they provide (which is 7.99 a month) you can downgrade to free.

Or use a Citi virtual card number that you can put a $1 limit and let expire after 30 days

It could be that won't work. IIRC I saw somewhere that they put a temporary charge of $5 on the card when you sign up. If it doesn't go through on the Citi virtual card with the $1 limit then you can try a higher limit until it goes through.

The first month is up a in a few days so don't forget to downgrade. You have to downgrade the PLAN and the SERVICES separately to knock the cost down to free.

On the free plan only 200MB data per month is included, but you can get an extra 50MB per friend on the account (up to 10). I'm still looking to add people, send a PM if interested.

B"H

By clicking Activate, you agree to pay the amount Due Today. Your FreedomPop service will not begin until your device ships. Orders placed after 12pm PST will ship the following business day. Certain orders may require up to two additional business days for processing. Your subscription includes a 1-month(s) free service trial. At the conclusion of your free trial, your service will automatically renew at the provided rate found in your shopping cart of $24.99 every month. When downgrading to the free plan, an account balance is required to protect ourselves from fraud and leakage, as data usage can be delayed up to 3 hours.

from my experience, that was $5

My experience in short.
I ordered 1 sim card. But saw a day later 2 separate  charges of $.01 each plus charge of $5. Waited for the SIM card 10 days  to arrive but it didn't came. I called them up they said they don't have any option of tracking my my package. So I should wait another 2 days. Asked them about the $5 charge and the $0.01 they said that if auto refill on my account is off they charge $5 and the  $0.01 they charged bcs I so called ordered 2 SIM cards which was absolutely not true. Either way they refunded the  $5  But said that they do charge  $5 for downgrading to the free plan. Gave  another week to see if sim card will arrive but it didn't. I tried to call them and since then I wasn't able to get to costumer service, the system kept saying that something is wrong with my billing info and asked to enter my CC info. No matter from which phone I called them the system kept saying that same thing which I totally saw as a scam. Never heard such a thing that a person should not be able to get to CS unless he enters a CC. Tried several times on different days. That's when I called amex to block them from my account and dispute the 2  $.01 charges.
End of story.

The reason they ask you to enter CC num. because there's no CS unless you pay for it, they don't provide any CS, even if you get a hold of someone and you ask something besides opening a new acount they'll transfer you to automatic system which will only allow you to speak to CS if you paid for it, otherwise either you can reach them by email or on their Forum.

In plans, at your selected plan on the bottom right corner there's an option to downgrade click on that you'll be able to downgrade to Basic 200 Plan.
keep in mind you need $5 in your account in order to downgrade.

Thank you US, I just found the info under "contact" on their site:
Click on the Plans tab from the blue bar at the top of the screen.
Click on the plan that you are currently enrolled in.
From here, you should see a small link that says "To downgrade, click here". Click the word "here" in that sentence.


They then try to get you to keep it and you have to keep clicking "downgrade anyway".
They charge $10 on account in case you've racked up a bill they don't know about.

If you first disable the Auto-Top-Up which will ask you to add $5 to your account, you'll be able to downgrade without the $10 charge, so you only add $5 in total.

How?
i managed to order mine with a pre-paid card which has less than $5 on it.

Think it will ship?
will i be able to downgrade for free to the free plan?
What's this talk of needing $5 or $10 in account?

You should get it with no problem.

In order to downgrade they ask you to add $10 of credit to your account, just to be secure in case you used more then the amount of Data you ar allowed.
but if you disable the Auto top up which you'll be asked to add $5 of credit for same reason, than you won't have to add $10 to your account.
so you'll end up paying ony $5 instead of $10.

I don't mind paying $5 but i don't want to give them a real CC. Problem is the "CC" they have on file is a gift card with $2 on it

So just change your CC on file, you can give a VCC.

I don't think it's a problem adding your CC, but if you really don't want, change it to your CC add the $5 than change back to the $2 GC.

Good luck with FreedomPop, Customer Service is non existent, ghost charges rampant, speaking from personal experience.

+1,
I had them for a year or so, downgraded both plan and services, charges kept on coming my way, and i needed to upgrade to have the privilege of talking to CS, which did reimburse some of the charges, but two months later, everything was back to square 1, random charges etc.

When you you try to downgrade they ask you for $10?

Once I downgraded didn't hear from them, no charges at all.

No. i only paid 0.01 (with a gift card with $1 balance) i'm hesitant at adding a normal cc because of all the reports of random charges. when i want to downgrade it still asks for $10. it's not giving me an option to pay $5 when disabiling auto pay. it just disabled wih out issue.

my account seems to be a little different than many of you here. it did not require me to add the 1st month free services so i dont have any services that i need to cancel only the $24.99 for the monthly plan which i want to downgrade to the free plan but it looks like i'll need to add $10 in order to downgrade.

It was like I didn't hear from them long time and suddenly talking of them it came as a reminder we're  still here and we can always charge you.

My son wanted an LG Rumor, but I couldn't get it on FreedomPop.  So I bought a Rumor and put him on Tello.com   Not free, but $20 + tax for unlimited talk and text.
Call or write to FreedomPop and ask what 'feature phones' they work with.  Maybe they have one they can sell you.

$20? Now it's like $11+tax.
I don't think FreedomPop will work with any feature phone. Everything is run through data, calls included.

You're right.  With NY tax it's still under $15/month.   tello.com
