Assurance Wireless Launches In Minnesota
Assurance Wireless today announced that qualifying residents in the state of Minnesota will have access to Assurance's products and services. Assurance Wireless provides a free cell phone and 250 monthly voice minutes to low-income families. Assurance also offers low-cost plans. For $5 per month, Assurance customers can double their monthly minutes to 500, and for $20, increase voice minutes to 1000 and add in 1000 text messages. Customers will still have access to their 250 free minutes even if they can't pay for the extra minutes. Assurance also offers pay-by-use voice minutes, text/email messages and international calling. Minnesota marks the 37th state in which Assurance now operates. Assurance is run by Virgin Mobile USA and Sprint.
I wonder how many
I wonder how many of these customers have their own homes and drive nice cars. But they "cannot afford" a cell phone.
