HTC_EVO_4G_FP_shine.pngFreedomPop’s launch of the Freedom Phone in October, response was “off the hook” as demand flooded the company and they sold out of their inventory in 24 hours.  The team worked furiously to deliver more options to consumers who wanted to bring their cell phones to zero and today they announced a “bring your own phone” plan that allows owners of select Sprint phones to join the FreedomPop network to enjoy the benefits of free voice, data and text.

In addition, the company is now offering a $99 HTC Evo 4G which also comes with a lifetime of free voice, text and data.

Below is a snapshot of some of the coverage around the announcement this morning, with more stories expected to be coming soon.

Congratulations to the FreedomPop team!
