Is this the "Obama Phone" you've heard of?

You may have heard people talk about a free cell phone service that is referred to as the Obama Phone. This service 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 phone service affordable for low income households by providing a subsidy to those who qualify. Until recently, it was mainly applied to wire-line service. The second misconception is about the free phone. The "Obama Phone" doesn't provide a free phone. It provides only a subsidy toward phone service. That subsidy allows provides like us to give the customer free minutes of use. The free phone is actually at the expense of the provider.
