    I have recertified with Assurance wireless over and over and over again since Aug 15, 2014.
    They now tell me that they won’t know about my recertification for three more weeks because the government still has my information and they don’t have it back yet. This is October, at least 1 1/2 months later. My minutes run out in two weeks. So I am supposed to go without a lifeline for at least a week? Who do I call in the government to get this fixed? I have no other phone, so I guess I need a website or eMail address.

      We wish we could help you but we would have no idea who your company is either. You’re going to have to contact each company on the list above until you find the one that issued your phone. Unless you had a credit card associated with it for extra minutes, at least you won’t be billed for anything by the thief.
