I have some ideas on this, making a note to respond once I get back later today.Something of note on this FreedomPop system I learned this weekend that's not so great: Uber rejects phone numbers that are VOIP, so I could not use the app.
I've been doing some reading on this and lots of others have encountered the same. Doesn't seem anyone has found a work-around except to get yet another phone number from Google Voice (??).
Just an FYI I was able to order a FREE hotspot from them which I plan to downgrade to the free tier. Cost me $10 setup fee.Has anyone tried this with a wifi hotspot?
I'm Canadian with lots of family in the States and I'd love to avoid paying my carrier $7/day to use my phone in the States. I think the free plan would work fine for my needs as I'm only over for a few days a month visiting family, but the cost of a hotspot would be paid for in 1 month compared to $7/day with my carrier right now. Free is good so long as I can tether my phone to a hotspot. I do not want to swap SIMs... I've had nothing but trouble trying this in the past, hence why I currently just pay the premium to use my phone when I visit.
Will do! I tried the 1 day shipping option as I was in Michigan this weekend but the order is still "processing" so I was actually able to refund the priority shipping back to free as I won't be back for a few weeks, but I'll definitely report on how it works out.Will you report back and let us know if it's working as you'd expect?
