FreedomPop Gets Fabulous Funding!

If you are a light user of cell phone services (500 megabytes, 200 voice call and up to 500 text messages per month) and would like to enjoy them for free, explore a fresh idea called Freedompop. Need a phone? They also offer deep discounts on smartphones and tablets.

As originally reported on Fortune, this is a Los Angeles cell phone company in business since 2012 that buys the services at a deep discount from Sprint. They then pass these discounts to their customers. Steven Stokols, CEO is a seasoned startup impresario who sees a profitable future with no cell tower framework to maintain. He knows that the customer will eventually want added services and will pay for it as increased services are offered. Eventually Mr. Stokols would like to increase the free data to 800 MG or possibly to 1G.

The customers can enlarge their services by changing their plan at much lower costs than the Other Guys. Freedompop picks up the check for the mobile data, SMS and voice service making this an asset that the customer can acquire for far less than the competition. They can cherry pick services like insurance on the phone for breakage, incognito browsing or data rollover month to month. International phone numbers can be added to the phone without the Other Guys International mark up prices. This idea is catching fire as the company’s popularity is spreading by their own FreedomPop customers and that has resulted in the need for growth capital.

TechCrunch reports that FreedomPop has gotten the attention of Partech Ventures, DCM and Mangrove Capital to the tune of thirty million dollars! Naturally, the competition has been making offers to Freedompop to get their hands on it seeing that it already had acquired $49.3 million since the company’s inception. Six solid propositions were offered to acquire the company by The Otherguys: the estimated worth being beneath a squatty hundreds of millions of dollars!

Woman Receives Delivery Receipt with Instructions not to deliver to her

A woman in Mesa, Arizona was in for a big surprise when her breakfast burritos were delivered from Burritos Express, a local eatery. The woman, identified as Mia Fisher, orders from the eatery regularly as it is close to her office, but this time the receipt read “”Don’t deliver to Mia, just tell her we don’t want any more problems, she is loca.”

Fisher claims she was hurt by the message, especially because she has been a regular customer.

According to the owner of the eatery, Fisher had become irrational during a previous delivery when the driver forgot part of her order. He claims she screamed expletives on the phone and acted irrationally. Fisher remembers the exchange differently, noting she complained about the forgotten food items, but did so cordially.

People at Anastasia Date have learned that Fisher went looking for an apology from management, but they refused to do so, stating that Fisher’s behavior in her previous encounters with the staff promoted the message. Management did state they did not intend for the note to end up on the receipt, but rather as an internal memo.

This is far from the first time were insulting messages have made their way onto restaurant receipts, in fact, it has become a regular occurrence. Fisher’s experience was tame in comparison to other receipt horror stories.
