I'm not sure if Assurance Wireless is the same as the Lifeline program. All I know if the handset they get appears to be a monolithic style Kyocera one. ๐Ÿคจ

i wasn't implying they are the same company (duh they're seperate), but they both provide similar service to qualifying low-income households. my point was, the dude i was talking to had no idea which one he had.

Are you sure you're not exaggerating? If not, remind me of why you, I and every tax payer are paying for his bill, when he doesn't even have the comprehension to recognize the service he's using. Why do we support the weak in such a way? Providing for food and shelter is one thing (although the federal government should absolutely never spend for those reasons; that is to remain the responsibility of the states), but a cell phone is absolutely not a necessity and there is no reason a government funded cellular service should be provided.

This is a perfect example of an opportunity for a charity program to exist. A great way to provide this service is as a combination effort from all major carriers who all contribute decent amounts to a co...

Whine, whine, whine, blah, blah, blah,,about what the government should and should not do is ever changing.

Sounds like you have an Obama phone, too.

I fought for my country. That's why I don't want my taxes paying for a cell phone.

Why do the needy need cellphones? Why is the landline program not sufficient? A cell phone is a luxury. If I lose my income the first things to go will be the cellphone, cable and Internet. I really don't see a need for a cellphone charity OR cell phone entitlement program. ๐Ÿ™„
But 'obamaphone' is pretty funny ๐Ÿคฃ
