No the Freedompop / Red Pocket CDMA $3 plan is not VOIP. It's the same Sprint standard calling the other MVNO's are offering.
But it's clear now the $3 plan is for 200 min, 200 MB, not 500 MB like some of us got the first month. It's still a good deal for good tech service support.

No, it's hard capped.
(Edit after looking.....)
Add-ons are available for data only.
$2 / 100mb
$10/ 1 gb
It's too bad there isn't an add-on for minutes.
I hadn't really looked at that before-- thanks for giving me a reason to look, bingyee.
The 1GB price isn't bad. Paired with allowed hotspot use, it could come in handy sometime. (I had to ask customer service to enable hotspot on my line.)
Thanks for mentioning that. I hadn't thought about it.
I'm still debating whether that plan might be worthwhile for me for a tablet (so far I think the answer is "only if I can get a better tablet that fits the same keyboard case my G-Pad is in for Sprint but can't get one for AT&T).
I think for me personally, the 1GB would be the least likely I might actually use, but that's due to peculiarities of usage patterns...
