Cell phones are a necessity, yet they end up being very costly. Luckily, there’s a very successful government program - the Lifeline Program - which offers free cell phones to eligible citizens. You can check your eligibility here.
 
If you’re eligible, you can find a list of carriers who will be able to provide you with your cell phone and service listed by state here.
 
On each of these resulting provider pages, you’ll find comprehensive information on their specific availability, their plans, and on how to contact them. You should review every provider on your state page. While the federal Lifeline program provides parameters the companies must follow, plans and phone choices often vary substantially between providers.
 
Once you’ve narrowed down your choices of providers, go to each company’s website and take a look at the phones and programs they have to offer. You’ll be with this company for a minimum of one year, so choose the one that best meets your needs.
 
Enroll either by phone or on the company’s website. Enrolling online most often allows you to easily upload any documentation they might require. Be sure to select that method income qualification requires more documentation to gather up and send. Eligibility by program participation is easy.
 
Once enrolled, you now just have to wait for your phone to arrive in the mail. Delivery times vary, from a week to several weeks. After that, you’ll be all set with your new cell phone!
