FreedomPop today announced the Privacy Phone, what it bills as a secure smartphone to protect users from hackers, government agencies, and spyware. The Privacy Phone uses 128-bit encryption to secure voice calls and text messages. It provides anonymous internet browsing and prevents online marketers from tracking web activity. The Privacy Phone also prevents data monitoring from third parties, and bypasses web site restrictions so it can connect to any site. FreedomPop says the Privacy Phone shields users from viruses and malware, blocks malicious web sites, and prevents phishing attacks. The Privacy Phone is a Samsung Galaxy S II that FreedomPop has refurbished with its own software. The device costs $189 and is offered without a contract. FreedomPop is providing three months of unlimited voice and messaging with 500MB of data for free, after which the service plan will cost $10 per month.

Insane pricepoint for the plan

So you buy a Sub-$200.00 phone, get free service for 3 months, and then you get UNL T+T+500MB for only $10.00 per month? Is FreedomPop one of those mixed Cell/Wifi providers or something, becuase that is an insane deal. I can't access their site from my current location, anybody know ?
You can't access their site. Thats how secure they are. Smile

I'm also wanting to check this out more.... $10 a month unlimited....
I think so, but I'm not 100% sure, other thing, they run on the sprint network, just to let you know, what you getting into,

I don't trust them.

Went to their url, any url that requires a email to go further is a scam. Beware. I can understand asking for the zip code for service but thats it.
