Is this the "Obama Phone" you've heard of?
You may have heard people talk about a free wireless plan that is referred to as the Obama Phone. This program is indeed what that term is referring to. However, it isn't quite accurate. First, President Obama didn't create the plan. The plan is called Lifeline and was around long before Obama became president. The Lifeline program is intended to make telephone communications affordable for low income households by providing a subsidy to those who qualify. Until recently, it was mainly applied to wire-line. The second misconception is about the free phone. The "Obama Phone" doesn't provide a free handset. It provides only a subsidy toward usage. That subsidy allows providers like us to give the customer free minutes of use. The cost of the handset is actually at the expense of the provider.
Get up to 500 minutes per month for no charge. If that's not enough minutes, you can purchase
more at great low rates on a pay-as-you go basis. You can place local and long distance calls, access
voicemail, and send and receive text messages.
Every month you get a fresh 500 minutes! You won't get a bill because the plan is FREE!.
There is no credit check, no contract, and no obligation. Cancel your plan whenever you want. But, there's no reason to cancel because it's FREE.

Residents may also qualify based on Income. If your household income is at or below 135% of the federal poverty level, you can qualify for lifeline benefits.
