FreedomPop WhatsApp SIM teaser

FreedomPop today announced a new SIM aimed at fans of the popular messaging app WhatsApp. The new SIM gives you unlimited WhatsApp usage in the United States and more than thirty countries worldwide, plus 200 megabytes of additional cellular data and 100 voice minutes. You can also earn additional free data every month by adding friends and completing partner offers.

After putting a FreedomPop SIM into your iPhone, iPad or Android device, you can message people on WhatsApp and FreedomPop will cover all data used by the app, without eating into the additional 200 megabytes of data provided free each month.

You can use your 200MB monthly bucket and 100 voice minutes in 31 counties worldwide—including the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Portugal, Italy and others—without additional fees or roaming charges.

This zero-rated WhatsApp plan first launched in Spain last month. The company has partnered with more than thirty mobile networks worldwide to bring free global data to users, with more to come soon.

    I know WhatsApp is popular and all, but I really don’t know anyone that uses it

    • Raymond Lanser

      Yeah, not so big in America. Go to Europe and people ask for your WhatsApp before anything else.

      • Noohar

        I’ll say it again. WhatsApp is huge in Africa….

    • askep3


      Most everyone outside of the U.S. uses it. Europe, and especially India. It’s insane in India people only use their phones for whatsapp.

      • Agneev Mukherjee

        True. Very True.

    • Marcus

      Yep. I live in Southern California and nobody uses it. Everyone uses SMS, iMessage, Snapchat, and Twitter mostly. I know someone in Spain though and he uses it with everybody that he knows back there.

  • Burge

    dont know anyone who uses whats app. I know my friends and myself have it but with unlimited texts and calls and I’ll say iMessage what’s the point of using what’s app. And my daughter and her friends use Snapchat.

    • Smegmatron

      The world is NOT limited to USA. You guys call yourselves “americans” even though that’s the continents name from Mexico to Argentina. You called soccer real football…
      USA is the only country that uses iMessage as standard, in south AMERICA whatsapp it’s hughe.

      • Burge

        Who said I was American? Who said I live in the USA ? Before you go trolling you need to know your facts

        Try the UK. Your only out by around 3500 miles.

  • Ammar Mudhaffar

    That’s it?!! 200 mb?!
    In my country, we get 12 GB data + unlimited social media, including YouTube for 12$

    • Agneev Mukherjee

      Well I get 40GB data for $17.21 a month in India

      • Burge

        There is no point in comparing what you get with other countries as it’s based on the cost of living in that country and what customers can afford within that country, so the carriers have to complete with each other to entice customers to go with that network.

      • Agneev Mukherjee

        There is a point: I say my opinion.

      • Burge

        And the average wage in India is around $2000 in the US it’s $55000. On your average wage from India you will not be able to afford a mobile phone in the US. Until you understand the cost of living in different countries has a big effect on what you pay in that country to live there is no point in trying to tell you otherwise.

      • Agneev Mukherjee

        $2000??? More like $200

      • Burge

        So your saying the yearly average wage is $200 ?

      • Agneev Mukherjee

        Nope, monthly.

      • Burge

        Ok so $200 a month what would that get you in the US.

        Your phone contract we will say is $70

        So now you need to live off $130 for the reset of the month. You will not be able to do it.

        If the average wage in India was about the same as the US around $55,000 a year you will not be paying $17 for a phone contract you would pay roughly about $70 a month

        Everything you pay in your country is based on the economy of that country and what people can afford to pay,

      • Burge

        I’ve just worked out what I pay per month and with my discount that I received from the network and not including the cost of the device, I pay $13.38. And that’s for unlimited call and texts with 10Gb of data.
