You are aware nothing is free? Someone pays for those ... mainly tax payers.
The other day, I was in a store where a guy was singing praises to "O". Keep in mind this guy always talks about the wraps he buys to smoke his dope. He's clearly not the brightest feller you would want to speak with, and he was telling us about getting one of those free phones. Told us he didn't know how to use it but it kept perfect time. And he didn't use it until the government sent him notice that he had to use it so much a month or he would lose it.
There are about 20 free cell phone providers providing free cell phones. These phones are made possible through Lifeleline Assistance program. There are however, financial requirements to qualifiy. Here is more information that may help: Government Phones.
