Me too
I use Freedom Pop for free phone calls as well. Got the freedom pop portable hotspot (no activation fee or other fees of any kind) for $40. Use my Samsung Galaxy nexus phone with the following apps:

1. Google Voice: Free text message app and free phone number.

2. GrooVe IP: Voip calling app with a one-time cost of $5 (uses your Google Voice phone number).

Monthly phone bill: $0.

Downside: cell phone coverage not as good as Verizon and voice quality not as good in some areas. Works just fine 95% of the time for me in Sacramento.

911 calls
By law your cell phone has to be able to call 911 even without service plan.
