WhatsApp Unlimited With FreedomPop!
WhatsApp and FreedomPop Strikes a Deal
This week FreedomPop announced a major deal with WhatsApp in the US. Earlier in the year they brought the WhatsApp plan to Spain and seen that this was a major hit! This plan gives users to communicate for free and unlimited without touching their voice minutes nor using data. This is somewhat similar to what we are seeing with carriers like T-Mobile and Sprint doing with the streaming industry. Binge On by compressing video and audio quality. Now FreedomPop and WhatsApp team up to let you binge on with an Instant Messaging application.
FreedomPop believes that calls and texts should be free and that you shouldn't have to pay for it. They also believe that your data should be free somewhat. To do most basic things at that. This is not a bad idea. This could actually disrupt the industry. This plan works now in the US and you can order the sim that includes WhatsApp unlimited. My question is, will this plan already work for those customers already part of FreedomPop and are already using the WhatsApp application? Do customers now have to order this new sim card and new plan? I have just been informed by FreedomPop that existing customers can opt in for this new WhatsApp plan just by logging on into their FreedomPop account. They have 2 other WhatsApp plans including the 1GB and 2GB plans with unlimited talk and text included.
The WhatsApp Unlimted will work in about over 30 countries including, US, UK, Germany, France, Italy and much more. iPhone and Android users are able to participate in this plan as well. So no one is left out. There no roaming fees and the use of the app won't count against your data plan and service.

Binge On the Future?
So we now see a lot of carriers are making moves with allowing customers to use most of their favorite apps without touching their data. Now the Instant Messaging services want to disrupt by not using up your data. If we are seeing this as a major trend, will having unlimited data still be any good to promote for carriers like T-Mobile, Sprint, At&t, and Verizon? Can FreedomPop really disrupt in the US with acquiring WhatsApp as an unlimited use with their Free Basic Plan? Where do you all see each of these companies going forward? Is this unlimited WhatsApp deal enough to make you switch to FreedomPop? Leave those comments below in the comment section. More updates coming soon.
