Los Angeles-based FreedomPop said Tuesday that it has extended its free broadband service into mobile phones, and will now offer up free, phone service to users--with up to 500 text messages a month and 200 anytime minutes. The startup--which has been offering up its free, broadband data plans since last year--is launching the service with the HTC Evo Design. As with the company's broadband plans, the company is offering up a premium version of the service, which lifts those text messaging and minute limits, for $10.99 a month. FreedomPop raised a round of funding in July specifically for launching the free phone service. The company is backed by DCM, Atomico, and Mangrove Partners.
