Free Government Cell Phone?



If you have not yet heard about this program, you probably have a lot of questions. The Lifeline Assistance Program that provided households with a free home phone has been expanded to now include cell phones and free monthly minutes.

The exact specifics vary depending on where you live and what company you decide to go with. There are quite a few options out there, which is why we put together this website. On this page, you can find out a little more about the four major service providers that participate in the free cell phone program.

You may also want to check out our page on regional service providers as well as our list of participating states. Either way, you’re going to find out everything you need to know in order to secure a free phone with free monthly minutes. It’s as easy as filling out an application and waiting to hear back about approval.

Is this the Obama Phone?

If you research the Obama Phone online you will quickly find out that this is a rumor that has gotten out of control online. The Lifeline Assistance Program was actually put in place during a previous administration.  This is NOT some secret plan by President Obama to get re-elected.

    Why won’t Safelink Wireless let us block any of these harrassing calls that come in sometimes several times daily. Do the other free carriers allow us to block calls. I tried to contact Access Wireless (I Wireless) but was left on hold for 30min. and never got through. It is abusive to not allow us controle.
