Hail the UK's first free SIM-only mobile plan

mobile apps The people at FreedomPop are all set to bring their free SIM-only monthly phone plan to Britain this summer, and the whole thing sounds a bit too good to be true. Basically, the idea is that this plan will allow you to phone people up, text and muck about online, without having to spend a penny.

They aren't even charging for the initial SIM card and the freebie version gives you 200 minutes, 200 texts and 200MB of data.

FreedomPop also lets you make free international calls to more than 60 countries, as well as unlimited calls and texts to other FreedomPop customers.

Co-founder Steven Sesar says: "We see ourselves as the no-frills mobile carrier. We want users to feel liberated, getting the basic services for free. We’ll start with around a dozen add-on services that customers can choose to pay for, and extend that to 20 or so within a year."

Of course, if you use loads of data, this might not be the thing for you. If you go over your bundle, then you'll want to look into how much they charge as, presumably, that's where FreedomPop make their money.

FreedomPop said that the European launch is "imminent".

    The UK's first? One word. "Ovivo", as Vic Reeves might say (almost)
