What is Free Zone?
Free Zone is a bundle offered by mobile operators in association with Google that allows you to use Google+, Gmail, and Google Search for free. It’s available on most internet-enabled mobile phones.
When you use these Google products through Free Zone on your mobile phone, you won’t be charged for data. You can use Free Zone even if you haven’t subscribed to a data plan with your operator.
Try it out
You can access Free Zone using any default phone browser:
- Sign in to your Google Account at http://g.co/freezone with your mobile phone in order to use Google Search, Gmail, and Google+.
- If you don’t have a Google Account, you can create one by going to http://g.co/freezone.
Free Zone should be accessed using your phone's default browser. Third party browsers (such as QQn and Bolt) are not supported.
Since using Google+, Gmail, and Google Search is free through Free Zone, there is no limit to the amount of data you use for these Google products. You’re also not charged for any links that you click on from the search results page.
Important: When using Search, the page you access after clicking on a search result is free. However, if you click on a link within that article—or if a link takes you outside of Google+ or Gmail—you'll be shown a warning page alerting you of any potential charges. It also gives you the opportunity to sign up for a data plan if you don’t already have one.
