No action is required for our GSM lines at this time, we'll be sure to give everyone adequate notice should any action be required down the line. We plan to keep GSM users active on FreedomPop and will be announcing a new offer soon.

I tried a redpocket gsm-t sim and after I input the ICCID the page of plans was blank. So nothing special available. Hopefully freedompop will add tmobile sims to the "new offer" they just mentioned will be announced soon.
I contacted Red Pocket CS yesterday and asked if they have a 'special rate' for former GSM (ATT) customers like they offer for former FreedomPop Sprint customers. I was told "no they do not" and that I could either keep my free FreedomPop plan for the time being, or, sign up for a 'regular' plan on Red Pocket ATT.

Yeah, no new options for GSM users so far. They do have a 'special rate' for a Sprint-network plan for former or existing) GSM users, or non-former users of any network. You can sign up for the FreedomPop CDMA plan even if you didn't have a FreedomPop CDMA line.
I started the process with an email still attached to a gsm/LTE SIM, and there was no problem getting the Sprint plan offer. (I didn't complete it, because I didn't know if it would nerf my existing LTE SIM.) . I started and finished the process with an email address that FreedomPop didn't remember at all, and after registering it and starting over at the CDMA plan link, I got the CDMA plan with no problem.
I started the process with an account I already had at Red Pocket for an email address that was never associated with Freedompop but a Sprint device that was, and as far as I could tell, if I'd wanted to follow through with it, I could have gotten the special Sprint rate.
FreedomPop and Unreal Mobile GSM currently remains unchanged, but you can look forward to new plan offerings and other improvements in the near future! For those interested in signing up with Red Pocket, you can take advantage of their back-to-school special and get 50% off for your first month on GSMA with referral code: GSMABTS2019
