(Pocket-lint) - Mobile plans aren't exactly cheap. However, mobile carrier FreedomPop, which launched in the UK last year after first debuting in the US, is offering customers voice calls, texts, and mobile data at no cost. More specifically, you can get 200 minutes, 200 texts and 200MB of data, free of charge every month, making it perfect for most users. Even better, they have a new limited time offer that trumps their free plan in savings & value.
Top deal for Pocket-Lint Readers
FreedomPop has provided us at Pocket-Lint a special deal today: a free SIM Card that comes with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and 2250MB of data.
