StandUp Wireless Free Cell Phones and Service

<< All Free Cell Phone Providers

Standup Wireless is one of a number of smaller companies that are certified by the U.S. federal government’s Lifeline phone service program to provide free cell phones and free minutes to residents of Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

While the top, major providers of free cell phones through the Lifeline Assistance program offer 250 minutes of airtime a month, StandUp Wireless only offers 100 minutes. However, you must note that 100 text messages are also included. Considering that the companies who offer 250 minutes will reduce those minutes with each text message made or received, 100 minutes may not be a bad deal, depending upon how you use your phone.

Another good thing about StandUp Wireless is that they rollover unused minutes over from month to month. Not everyone does this.

The usual complement of features are provided on the phone: caller id, voicemail, and call waiting. And they do include free nationwide long distance. International calls are allowed, but chargeable.

If you require more minutes or text messages, you can buy into either of their two premium Lifeline plans. For $14.95 a month you will receive 500 minutes and 500 text messages, and for $29.95 a month you will receive 1,000 minutes and 1,000 text messages.

Qualifying for a StandUp Wireless phone is easy if you are one of the many financially disadvantaged these days. In general, any of the following qualifies you:

  • Low Income Home Energy Assistance Plan (LIHEAP)
  • Medicaid
  • Board of Education Free Lunch Program
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Food Stamps
  • Section 8 Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA)
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • Income at or below 135% of federal poverty level* (proof required)

    My phone is saying my account could not be validated; I know I have minutes on my phone and that I just recertified in December 2014; why am I getting this message?

  6. Brandyi Burns says

    I have called and been put on hold several times trying to get in touch with customer service through 1800-544-4441 and 611 and after waiting forever just for them to answer they tell me that I have the wrong number. Has the carrier changed in Arkansas or something? I need to know how to get in touch with standup so that I can put a lifeline package on my phone. Do any of you know how I might be able to do that or who I may need to speak to? Please help. Thanks

      Unless you know the provider name, there is no way to get a replacement, because you don’t know who to ask for one.
