Use Cell Phone With Free Data Plan As GPS

I paid a total of $25 plus tax and got a free data plan along with some free voice and text. The voice has some echo, so I am only using the data plan as my gps in the car. The service is from freedompop. If you have your own Sprint cell phone, you may pay $20 to use the “Bring Your Own Device” program, a little cheaper than what I paid (I don’t have a unused Sprint cell phone lying around). Even though freedompop does not promote their free data plan service as much, I will show you how to downgrade your plan to get the free service.

I will also show you my cheap and simple way to attach the cell phone in the car. Thought it does not look glamorous, this is one of the most practical and useful life hacks.

One more note: the free data plan is not an unlimited data plan, so you still need to watch your quota. Also you are getting something free or cheap, so don’t expect the best support.
