Does SafeLink Wireless Really Work?
SafeLink Wireless is described as a “Free Cell Phone and Minutes” service for people participating in programs such as Food Stamps or Medicaid. Under the Safe Link Wireless program, income eligible applicants will get a free cell phone, 1,000 texts and 250 minutes of call time every month. Additionally, they are offering new customers the chance to get 500 free minutes for the first 3 months when they enroll (after the first 3 months, the program will return to the original plan of 1 thousand text and 250 minutes.) Qualified participants can choose to apply online via the website. Like many government benefit programs, Safe Link Wireless is limited to one participant per household and non-transferable. Note that the eligibility requirements are set by each state where the service is to be provided.
