In 20 other states: 500 free minutes & 100 texts per month.
It’s easy to get confused with all the names associated with the Boomerang Wireless brand, so here’s a quick guide: Boomerang Wireless is the name of the company that offers the enTouch free government cell phone program. Ready Wireless is a sister company that offers a wide range of top-up options for customers who need to buy more minutes than they’re given as enTouch customers.
No matter what name you know it by, enTouch Wireless is quickly becoming a household name in the Lifeline Assistance business. The company is now making free government cell phones available in twenty states and it’s expanding rapidly. To be specific, you can get enTouch/Boomerang phones in Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
There’s good news for residents of other states, too, because enTouch has already applied with the Federal Communications Commission to offer free government cell phones in Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, Tennessee and Virginia.
Like most companies that serve California, the enTouch Wireless’ free government cell phone program gives gives one terrific deal for California, and another more moderate deal for the rest of the states it serves.
