Saying too good to be true may apply here. $149 one time fee for "lifetime" unlimited talk text and data. My guess is that this operates under some type of pyramid scheme or multi level marketing and this will be viable as long as there is new members coming in to pay for usage of existing members. "Lifetime"is likely tied to life of company, not lifetime of user.

Looks like they have been around for a couple years.

I didn't see anything too unusual in the restrictions/disclosures. Unlimited is defined as 22 GB, which is similar to other unlimited, and may be slowed after that.

At $25/mo, you break even after 6 months...

Some interesting past discussion on reddit. The privacy info is scary.

It sounds if you swap an activated SIM from one phone to another it will technically work but according to their terms and conditions, you are not supposed to do that. That's a dealbreaker for me. I wonder why they insist on that. I also wonder how aggressive they are in enforcing that provision.

After a little searching I can find no info on FreeMii other than a reddit thread: no reviews, no customers, save for a Reddit poster who provided a link to one supposed facebook customer several months ago. I don't have a facebook account to check it out. FreeMii has a Twitter account without any tweets or comments other than by FreeMii. Thus, I don't think I'll try being FreeMii's only customer.

Even without considering the incredibly cheap price promise...
It's bizarre that there are almost no reports about FreeMii over 2 years since the earlier press released I found.

I tried running some IMEIs on their eligibility checker.
Only IMEI will work, not MEID. Phone number and email address are required.
A Sprint Postpaid Tribute HD (CDMA only) passes.
A Boost Mobile Moto E4 (Sprint-network) CDMA locked) passes.
An AT&T Prepaid Maven 3, unlocked, passes (GSM only)
A Blu Advance 4.0 (3G GSM only, factory unlocked) passes.

The FAQ refers to setup for 'switching networks'. ?
Setup directions seem to references only the standard GSM-style APN process, not Sprint-network auto-provisioning
The APN settings give WORLDSIM as the name, and mobiledata as the APN. A google search shows that APN being used by WorldSim, an international data SIM with roaming capabilities.
www.worldsim.com

(EDIT: I only poked a little at the WorldSim site, but did see that AT&T is their default roaming partner in the US. I didn't dig deep enough to see if one could force other options-- but the FreeMii site seems to imply it's possible.)
