Safelink Wireless Reviews
Safelink Wireless is managed by Tracfone Wireless, a household name in communications. Tracfone Wireless has partnered with the state and federal government to create a low cost wireless phone and service available to anybody with low income. For those who qualify as low income, you get a free phone plus free allowance for monthly minutes, up to two hundred fifty minutes a month for free. You could also get even more free minutes by referring a friend. These phones are meant for those who cannot afford a regular cell phone and should be used in case of emergencies.
The improved Lifeline program now covers cell phones and is preferred over a landline phone. Cell phones are cheaper to buy and maintain with monthly payments. You can also carry them anywhere. With free monthly minutes and a free cell phone provided by Safelink Wireless, this helps many of those who have hit hard times.
With the economy in a rut, there are thousands out of a job and in need of a break. Having a free cell phone would allow those unemployed to more easily find a job. To find out if you are eligible for a free phone, check the lists of states where Safelink Wireless is accessible. Requirements for eligibility will also differ from state to state, so check their website before sending in an application. If you meet all the requirements, you should be able to get a free phone.
To apply for a free phone, you will need to submit some documents to Safelink to prove eligibility. This is easily done online and is not difficult at all. After a review and approval, a free government issued cell phone is sent to you. The regular free service is an allowance of 250 minutes a month, but if you need more minutes you will have to pay for the extra minutes. This is because the wireless service is classified as a public service effort. To make sure all subscribers get some free minutes each month, the number of minutes per user is rationed and limited. To apply for more minutes visit the company website where you can add more minutes and add more features to your free phone. These extra services will vary depending on your state.
Cell phone coverage is made possible by TracFone. Depending on your state, Safelink phones will be supported by AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon. For qualifying states, the coverage in your area should be very good since your phone is supported by major carriers.
SafeLink Wireless is located in Miami Florida and subscribers can visit their website or send an email to ask questions. They can also be contacted by phone for enrollment or for plan changes (1-800-SafeLink).
