    I did not need to sign for delivery of my "I don't know" option package.

    Same, here -- no emails from FP to any account (whether Sprint or ATT) and I have been checking regularly since this news broke.

    Wanting to insure that my recollection was not faulty, I rummaged around in my old email bin to find some Ting bills. Samples of what happens to low usage users below.

    It wasn't as bad as I...

    My problem with Ting is its =outrageous= taxes and fees. I explored Ting using my $35 RingPlusDemise credits and it simply wasn't cost effective for low use (for me). Line charge of $6. A single...

    Not sure why you see that but, as @Boz1 noted, you are not alone: a few folks do have ATT SIM accounts that give 500 base MB rather than the standard 200 MB. That's not the case with any of mine,...

    Ah; cool; thanks for the info. No, I didn't notice that account ever saying anything other than "basic 200" but I definitely am not looking at them daily. I'll go read about it on slickdeals -- I'm...

    Fair prediction, if it was an error. But the "plan" was never changed from its original "Basic 200" designation. That's what it has said all along; that's what it says now, even though the...

    Another extra-data-add-on from FreedomPop

    I got 5 GB extra on one account last month, half-way through the billing period. This month a different account (ATT LTE SIM, "Basic 200") got 1 GB extra, at the beginning of the billing period, but...

    "It depends." If you won't have reliable AT&T LTE data service in those "very rural areas" then, nope, FP isn't for you in those areas. Traditional cellular voice coverage still tends to have a...

    Well, being a former telco guy, I'd disagree.

    "VoIP" means "Voice over Internet Protocol" which for our purposes here is pretty much synonymous with "sending voice traffic over 'the Internet.'" ...

    AFAIK, Google Voice has never cared if the forward-to number is a VoIP number (as opposed to true cellular or landline). I've been forwarding to VoIP numbers for as long as I have been using GV --...

    Another hugely convoluted way is to have a nice BYOP; to have then purchased a bundle+phone at less then the price of the equivalent bucket amounts (say, phone + 1200/1200/1200/yr for $$50-60-$70);...

    Nope; your memory is fine. I've never seen such a thing either. But by doing the "add an item, add the year service add-on, delete the original item, buy the year of service alone" dance I've...

    Another free gift from FreedomPop

    Kinda "sleeves outta the vest" here:

    I received this email yesterday, 4/8, at noon:

    Dear _______,

    Well, not by the individual day, maybe, but the year of service add-on seems like a "bucket of days" add-on to me and I've regularly bought that separately...

    Whats the shelf-life of these things? How long does one have to activate it?

    I was all set to get some of these -- brick seek (if true) claimed two stores within walking distance had stock.

    But then I screwed my head on straight and realized that I already have 2350MB of...

    Tempting, but I already have a line on Tello PAYGO and I don't think I have any more qualifying Sprint phones lying around. Perhaps some dead ones I can use for activation and then I could fiddle...
