Looking for an awesome Lifeline Assistance package? Assurance Wireless is one of the “big three” free government cell phone providers, with a presence throughout the country. Their typical plan is 250 free voice minutes and unlimited texts. Right now though they are offering a promotion to new customers for 500 free minutes. This is an exciting special, and will certainly bring a lot of new customers onboard.
How does Lifeline Assistance with Assurance Wireless work? The basic plan is 250 free voice minutes and unlimited texts, as mentioned above. This plan is 100% free. If you need more minutes, you can purchase them. For $5 a month, you can boost your voice minutes to 500. For $30 you can enjoy unlimited talk, text and data. Alternately, you can get a Virgin Mobile Top-Up card and tack on more voice minutes or data as you need to, without paying a monthly rate for service. You can also add on 411 service and international calling.
Assurance Wireless Promotion
Right now with Assurance Wireless’ promotion for new customers, you can get 250 extra voice minutes per month for free. You do not need to be new to Lifeline, simply new to Assurance. You can even switch over from an existing Lifeline carrier. When you apply for Assurance Wireless, you forfeit the discount you receive through your current provider (if you have been receiving Lifeline benefits for more than 60 days you will need to take the extra step of de-enrolling with your current carrier). Once your application is processed, you will be switched over to Assurance to receive your Lifeline benefits.
If you are brand new to Lifeline and have never had a free government cell phone, the process is the same. Just download the application, fill it out, and send it in. To be approved, you must be living at or below 135% of the federal poverty level or receiving government aid through an eligible state or federal program. The turnaround time for applications is pretty fast; you may be talking on your new free cell phone inside of a week.
As a new customer with Assurance Wireless, you will be sent a free phone in the mail, and will then receive 500 free voice minutes and unlimited free texts for the first four months of service. Once the promotion expires at the end of the four months, you will continue to receive 250 free voice minutes and unlimited texts each month (the basic free plan). If you find yourself missing those 500 voice minutes per month, you can boost your plan back up to the same capacity you enjoyed for free for just $5 a month.
