How People Can Get In Touch With You Through Your Free Phone

Free government cell phones can be easily available to individuals whose total household income meets certain federal guidelines. On top of that, you can qualify for this service if you already participate in one or more of the following:

1. National School Lunch Program 2. Supplementary Security Income (SSI) 3. Medicaid 4. Food Stamps or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) 5. Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) 6. Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program 7. Section 8 Assistance (Federal Housing)

It is highly necessary that we have a means of communication wherever we go. We should not use our financial status as an excuse for not being able to have a mobile phone because it is the government's cause to make these gadgets easily available even to those who are in the poverty base line. Failure to communicate can lead to the downfall of a nation, which is why you really need to apply for a free cell phone. However, you need to keep the following in mind:

1. Only one unit is made available for every household. Disregard any thoughts of making every member apply for one.

2. You need to meet certain requirements in order to avail of it.

3. The unit will be pre-loaded with 250 free minutes worth of call and texts every month. Additional charges may apply, depending on your telecommunications company if you choose to make long-distance or international calls.

4. Before you get ahead of yourself and assume that you will be handed the latest gadget, think again. You will be provided with a basic, yet updated device that will make it possible for you to enjoy the following services: - Local and international calls - Roaming - Text messaging - Call waiting - Voice mail - Caller ID - Three-way calling

5. Inform your service provider of any plans regarding to changing addresses in order for them to make the necessary adjustments.

6. Only those who participate in the abovementioned programs can qualify for this service. If you have a stable job, enough income, and are in the middle and high-class bracket, you are not eligible for this.

7. Failure to utilize the device for more than two months may result in the disconnection of the phone or termination of your contract. Additional charges may apply if you want to have it reconnected. If you want to avoid paying additional fees, use it at least once a month.

Even if you are near the poverty base line, you can now have an easier time getting in touch with your relatives and co-workers. When and emergency at home happens, or if your kid gets sick in school, people will know how to get in touch with you.
