THOUSAND OAKS, CALIF. (PRWEB) JUNE 21, 2019
Red Pocket Mobile, a wireless service leader, announced that it has officially acquired “freemium” operator FreedomPop. Like all Red Pocket Mobile customers, FreedomPop and FreedomPop’s UNREAL Mobile subscribers will soon be able to pair virtually any phone in the US with the nationwide network of their choice.
What does this mean to American consumers? Free wireless service. On any phone. On any major network. For the first time ever.

Yes it will be really interesting if they offer a free plan on any network.

There is a lot of reading between the lines to do-- but this sounds amazingly good. I keep looking for the careful wording that makes it not-so-much.

They only bought the name and GSM subscribers - the Sprint network (CDMA) subscribers were sold to Ting. I only have a hotspot on GSM but several other devices on CDMA.

Yes I am not sure if the author really knows what redpocket plan to do. Yes they run on all 4 networks. Yes they may well keep a free tier. But whether those two will combine has yet to be confirmed from a reliable source within redpocket.

The link above (in my earlier post) is from USA Today's Press Release/Classifieds section. If I'm reading correctly at
classifieds.usatoday.com/
that makes this a Red Pocket release, written and paid for by Red Pocket.

I agree that it may be a mistake to combine each statement from within that press release, and assume they all apply to free tier plans.

The tweet above looks convincing thanks st3fx. It is going to be really interesting to see what they offer. Free verizon data? Yes please.

"without disrupting the service plans enjoyed by current subscribers." I wonder if this statement means current subscribers to FP can keep their plans and switch to another network while not paying anything or, in "Unreal's" case, paying the same?

"Besides additional network offerings, Red Pocket will make the FreedomPop and UNREAL Mobile brands appealing to a broader set of users by offering native voice service, enhanced billing controls, and live customer service agents, without disrupting the service plans enjoyed by current subscribers."

It could also mean not disrupting the service plans of redpocket subscribers.
