Unreal Mobile, a new wireless service from FreedomPop, has just launched a cell phone plan for $10 a month!

I was one of the 50,000 people who registered for Unreal’s beta program and received an early invitation to take advantage of the offer that’s now available to everyone at UnrealMobile.com.

Here’s the catch with these “unlimited” plans: Unreal’s $10 a month plan comes with just 1GB of LTE data before it’s reduced to 2G speeds — too slow for video streaming.

To be clear, Unreal’s plans include unlimited minutes, text messages and data. However, you must choose a plan based on how much high-speed data you need.

Unreal Mobile data plans (Updated September 2018)

Unlimited talk, text and 1GB LTE data $10/month
Unlimited talk, text and 3GB LTE data $20/month
Unlimited talk, text and 5GB LTE data $30/month

According to Unreal’s website, all plans include a built-in VPN security service that lets users browse anonymously without being tracked, an ad blocker and the ability to roll over unused data for free.

Unreal runs on Sprint’s network, so customers can bring their own Sprint CDMA phone or buy a new one.

“The response we received since announcing our intent to enter the market made it clear customers are ready for a different kind of low-cost mobile plan,” said Samantha Lewe, general manager of Unreal Mobile. “As the market braces itself for consolidation, we are demonstrating that it’s possible to provide the latest in premium, feature-rich mobile experiences at a huge discount and without postpaid contracts.”

Since Unreal Mobile is just getting started, there aren’t reviews from customers about its service. However, we’ve heard some complaints about FreedomPop in the past.

If you’re a light data user, this type of a plan may be worth a try! Just know that sometimes you get what you pay for.

UPDATE: Unreal Mobile has added AT&T as a second network partner, which allows customers to bring any unlocked GSM phone to the carrier. Learn more about the changes here.
