Question of the day: Is there a website with all the dates and times of places where you can get a free government cell phone?
We have tens of thousands of readers here at FreeGovernmentCellPhones.net every day. And the question they’ve been asking most often recently can be summed up in this message from a reader named Crystal:
I’ve seen at different times tents set up at different locations where you can get an Obama phone right on the spot. Is there a website that will tell you the dates and places of where they will be set up for my area? I live in Phoenix, AZ.
The simple answer is no. We wanted to set up a FreeGovernmentCellPhones.net page to list the tent events held by the dozens of companies that compete in the Lifeline Assistance business. Unfortunately, that information is very hard to come by.
But there is one company, enTouch Wireless, that lists all the information on its website. And when we say “all the information”, we mean dozens and dozens of tent events every month. The website says:
Each month the enTouch crew travels around the
country to hand out free phones and free airtime.
Please join us to see if you qualify.
To make scheduling even easier and to help you fit one of the events into your schedule, enTouch provides a complete calendar (http://entouchwireless.com/pages/local_events NOTE: link no longer working) that lists the time and location of each tent event. Here’s a look at a typical month:
As you can see, enTouch’s interactive map clearly lays out the date, time, and location of each tent event. If necessary, you can also look forward to a future month to find a day and time that’s best for you.
Unfortunately, enTouch Wireless doesn’t offer free government cell phones in all fifty states. But you’re in luck if you live in any of the following twenty states: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Texas, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
Why don’t all Lifeline Assistance companies offer this kind of information?
FreeGovernmentCellPhones.net is clearly the leading website dedicated to the Lifeline Assistance program. As we said earlier, we have tens of thousands of readers every single day of the year. And we simply don’t understand why ALL free government cell phone companies don’t make it this simple for their potential customers.
We know that all the major Lifeline Assistance companies read our site on a daily basis. We would still very much like to set up a Tent Event page that covers all the companies and all the tent events. If only those companies made that information available.
C’mon, Lifeline companies. Post that information on your websites. Send us the info. Give us the kind of complete data that enTouch provides. Let us publicize your events. Help us help you to sign up millions of financially-struggling Americans for free government cell phones.
