How to get free cell phone service. What most people do not know is that free cell phone minutes have been around for a few years now. If you meet certain income guidelines or are a participant in certain federal programs like food stamps, ssi, and medicaid you may qualify for government subsidized cell phone service.

The government has been subsidizing phone service for many years. If meet the requirements then your phone bill is paid for by fees that are included on others bills. This service is most commonly known as Life Line. Life Line became enhanced in 2005 to include cell phones. Programs like TracFone's Safelink started handing out phones in 2008. Most users refer to this program has "Obama Phone". The thing to remember is that it was George Bush who made this service an option. It was just that President Obama was the one in office when it became popular.

If you are looking for a free cell phone then stick to Tracfone's Safelink, Sprint's Assurance Wireless, and Nexus Communicaiton's Reachout Wireless. There are other programs offered by AT&T but they are only discounted cell phones not free. Safelink might be the most widely used program followed by Assurance Wireless. These phones are just basic cell phones. Most of them are easy to use and will serve the purpose that they are provided for.

      I personally have never used virgin mobile. But at the time I used prepaid Verizon and never had an issue. Did you try contacting support because they always seem nice to me.

      Good luck actually getting your points or redeeming them successfully. Their system does not work very well for Virgin Mobile top ups.
