FreedomPop today announced a new calling plan that targets owners of the Apple iPhone. Owners of the iPhone 6 or 6s who activate their phone with FreeomPop will receive 500MB of data, 500 texts, and 500 voice minutes each month for free. As a bonus for signing up, new iPhone customers will also receive 5GB of free data to get started. iPhone customers may choose to upgrade to the new $19 service plan that improves the offering to unlimited talk and text and 1GB of data.
