Re : FreedomPop Launches 'Snowden Phone'
It would be much more informative if you could bring forth a comparison between upcoming Black Phone and this FreedomPop Snowden Phone. Both seem to use encryption to secure the communication. With Black Phone though it is difficult to understand how it will secure the data one handed at the device level.

Re : FreedomPop Launches 'Snowden Phone'
@ mhhf1ve, I don't see any problem with their trying to get users to more expensive plans. This is their right to advertise and lure users into purchasing more expensive plans. However, lack of transparent practices in billing is objectionable. But again, this is something all the carriers have been doing always.

Re : FreedomPop Launches 'Snowden Phone'
@ FakeMitchWagner, that's a tradeoff which comes with low cost plans. From another angle it will give consumers more control over their data usage because they will keep an eye on it. I personally believe that data cap is not that big a sacrifice. Consumers can live without unlimited data because they can still do unlimited browsing, chatting and using social media.

Re : FreedomPop Launches 'Snowden Phone'
@ KBode, haha nothing can be more private than getting completely disconnected from any kind of network. On a serious note, it will be useless if they have connectivity problems and have limited outreach. I would love the promised privacy, but they have to strengthen their signals if they want to come any way near success in the carrier business.

Re: Cryin Time
Will journalists keep after the Satoshi Nakamoto they found and think is the creator of BitCoin? He denies being the creator, but maybe that's just part of the craziness of being a paranoid guy who wants to be anonymous but then uses his real name...

Re: Cryin Time
And similiarly, what major carrier isn't dinged in rip-off report? See, for instance:

http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/Verizon-Wireless/nationwide/Verizon-Wireless-Data-Usage-Scam-Nationwide-1084017

 

Not saying there's nothing to it but they're hardly alone in getting brickbats in this industry.

Re: Cryin Time
Yikes-- it all sounds a bit shady to me! And it may be savvy marketing but what assurances are there that it reallyis a private service? VoIP on the Sprint network sounds emminently interceptable to me...

These opt out subscriptions are so annoying. These are just slightly better than the hidden charges or the lengthy fine prints.
