Your LifeLine Assistance/Affordable Connectivity Program free government cell phone may allow roaming. Or it may not.
Roaming is a service that allows you to use your cell phone while you are in another country or outside of your service provider’s coverage area. Roaming can be convenient for those who travel frequently, but it can also be expensive, because it’s usually accompanied by steep additional charges.
Some Lifeline providers offer roaming as part of their service, while others don’t. You need to check with your specific service provider to find out whether roaming is included in your Lifeline plan.
If you’re interested in using your phone while roaming, it’s a good idea to carefully consider your options before enrolling in a Lifeline plan. Compare different plans and service providers to find the one that best fits your needs. Remember that it’s very important to carefully read the terms and conditions of your plan before you travel.
Because as we said earlier, roaming can be expensive. Especially if you aren’t expecting any extra charges.
