True Wireless serves the states of Arkansas, Maryland, Oklahoma, Rhode Island and Texas by providing Lifeline Assistance cell phones to the financially disadvantaged. The government cell phones are completely free in four of the states, and only $1 a month in Oklahoma.
True Wireless Plans in Arkansas, Maryland, Rhode Island and Texas
True Wireless’ plans offer 90 minutes of free airtime each month in Arkansas, Maryland, Rhode Island and Texas. The data-equipped camera phones allow text messaging, with each text message sent or received costing one of the 90 minutes. Additional minutes can be purchased for a low cost.
You can call anywhere in the United States. Only airtime charges apply. Calls cannot be made internationally. Calls to emergency services (911) are free. Keep in mind that the minutes do not roll over, so use what you need each month.
The True Wireless Oklahoma Plan
Oklahoma does things differently than other states — they require that the cell phone recipient have some skin in the game. So, True Wireless is required to charge $1 per month for the plan. But the good news is that you get 1,000 minutes a month for that dollar! That’s a lot of talk time and a much better deal than in other states where you get, depending upon the vendor, up to 250 minutes per month for free. Text messages will count as one minute.
But wait, there’s more. If you can scrape up $6.75 a month, you will receive unlimited airtime. Talk as much as you like. And if you find that you text a lot, you can add $20 a month for unlimited text messaging and data.
There is no money required up front to enroll, and monthly payments can be made with a credit card, MoneyGram, ACE and through direct merchants.
True Wireless has over 100,000 customers in Oklahoma so the plan must be OK with them.
