Tag Mobile is a provider of Lifeline cell phones for those with low income or on government assistance programs. They offer phones only in the states of Arkansas, California, Colorado, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

California and Oklahoma allow Lifeline cell phone companies to give their qualifying residents better plans. Tag Mobile gives Californians unlimited voice and text, plus 100MB of data. Oklahomans get 3,000 minutes, 3,000 texts and 300MB of data.

States other than California and Oklahoma offer plans that give the traditional 250 minutes of airtime and 250 texts per month. The company also has reload plans from $7-30 that allow top ups in 100, 500 and 1000 and unlimited minute/text packages.

The qualifications to get a phone from Tag Mobile are the same as for the other companies in the same states. Any of the following qualifies you:

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

The Tag Mobile phone comes with free voicemail, caller id, and call waiting. It is capable of sending and receiving text messaging, but be aware that each one counts as one minute of your airtime. Minutes do not rollover.

    I signed up for this service but never got my phone. Admittedly I had them send it to a P.O. Box but that should have only delayed getting my phone as the representative told me. Instead my phone is missing in action.

  2. mike honkoski says

    I filled out paperwork to get one of your phones about three weeks ago and i never got the phone but i just found out the the girl that i did the paperwork thing through is having the phones delivered to herself and then selling them. That’s why i never recieved mine.
    Please feel free to contact me for any other information you might need

    Someone very polite helped me on Chat on July 17, 2015; promised me a new SIM card, which I received promptly, and followed the directions. HOWEVER, the phone still says “No service”. No phone number has helped. Cannot make or receive calls. “Still processing” since June??? Please help. This has become very frustrating. I cannot afford to buy minutes. My original Safelink phone worked for several years, until it broke. PLEASE HELP. Thank you.

    Hello,

    We would like to request you to remove the starting text from the page that says “In California, get unlimited voice minutes and texting, plus 100MB data. Oklahoma residents get 3,000 minutes, 3,000 texts and 300MB data each month.Other states get 250 minutes and texts.”

    Note that we are no longer running the promo and request you to remove it from the website ASAP.

    Thanks.

    Team TAG Mobile

    • FreeGovernmentCellPhones.net says

      Since we want the page to be accurate, we went to the Tag Mobile website to check what’s advertised, and when checking a California zip code we see the page says the following:

      TAG Mobile is happy to offer government assisted wireless service to low income families and individuals that qualify in California. Qualified customers will receive a free, NEW cell phone (at activation) plus 1000 minutes, 1000 texts, and 100 megabytes of data for FREE every 30 days.

      In Oklahoma, it says:

      TAG Mobile service with a FREE phone and unlimited monthly minutes is available for your area.

      So, would it be correct to change the top text you requested we delete to the following?

      In California, get 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts, and 100MB data.
      Oklahoma residents get unlimited texts.
      Other states receive 250 minutes and texts.

      We need to verify this all from the online pages because of course we cannot determine from the comment if it is truly from Tag Mobile.

      Thanks you.

  11. Ti says

    We just signed up w/ TAG on condition that TAG’s Lifeline in California offers unlimited talk and text …INTERNATIONALLY. We only want to use the service for international talk and text.

    Do advise that this is what TAG offers, otherwise application for TAG’s Lifeline (in CA) would not meet our intention in signing up.

    Thanks much.

    • FreeGovernmentCellPhones.net says

      Free International calling is not free with any free Lifeline cell phone plan.

    I am trying to find out who my provider is .I have a Obama phone. I want to get my internet and I need this info. Its a Claro Model # Cl252EN

  13. Kelletta Bacchus says

    Why South Carolina can’t get unlimited talk n text I thunk its not fair 4 some people like me who has low income and kids and can’t pay for minutes on a phone but only n different states get that privilege when they probably make more then the people who really need unlimited talk n text its not right n I think iit should b 4 all States if its like that

  14. Jason D'Amato says

    I was mislead when I signed up, I was promised a touch screen smartphone with WiFi and Internet. The phone you sent is NOT a smartphone and does not come with the WiFi/ internet. Phone is way too small. I have a hard time using it. I want what I was promised, please help.

    I received my phone. I’m very disappointed in the fact that when I signed up to get it. I was promised a touch screen phone. The phone you sent does not come with the WiFi/ internet. Phone is way too small. I have a hard time using it. Also it did not come with a manual on how to use it.

    • tiffany says

      I had assurance too and was happy with it. The rep. said that my assurance phone service wouldn’t be affected by my signing up for a tag phone for my 16 year old son, next thing I know a week later, lifeline denies me for receiving ongoing service with them at assurance, and my phone was disconnected and guess what… THREE FREAKING WEEKS LATER I STILL HAVEN’T RECEIVED A DAMN THING FROM TAG PLUS MY OLD PHONE AND SERVICE ARE DISCONNECTED WHICH IS NNOOTT WHAT I WANTED OR EXPECTED. ASSURANCE WAS UNLIMITED TALK AND TXT! TAG IS NOT!

      • David French says

        Try Telscape they are unlimited period I’ve been with them over a year now, and have had very few problems. They sent me a smart phone to start with

        David French

    • Rachel Lowe says

      You didn’t notice the very first thing listed, Before you post your comment?
      If you are going to ask “how do I get a cell phone?”
      The words “go here” with a line underneath, means that is a link to guide you to your new mobile phone.
      Click on that link with your mouse arrow, and voila!
      Good luck.

    I have made 4 calls to this company – for over a month now. They keep saying they will send me an application, but never do. No application has been sent, in spite of my repeated calls. Now, today, they tell me they don’t send them (even though I was told I would be sent one by special air mail the last time I called a week ago), but that someone would be calling me.

    Singned up for phone and have not gotten the phone from them yeat what is taking so long to get this phone thank you and God bless

    • FreeGovernmentCellPhones.net says

      Each text message sent or received uses up one minute of the 250 minute allowance. So, for example, if you send or receive 100 texts and use 150 minutes of voice in a month, you are then at your limit. 250 texts would hit your limit, as would 250 minutes of calls.
