It’s easy to get confused with all the names associated with the Boomerang Wireless brand, so here’s a quick guide: Boomerang Wireless is the name of the company that offers the enTouch free government cell phone program. Ready Wireless is a sister company that offers a wide range of top-up options for customers who need to buy more minutes than they’re given as enTouch customers.
No matter what name you know it by, enTouch Wireless is quickly becoming a household name in the Lifeline Assistance business. The company is now making free government cell phones available in twenty states and it’s expanding rapidly. To be specific, you can get enTouch/Boomerang phones in Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
There’s good news for residents of other states, too, because enTouch has already applied with the Federal Communications Commission to offer free government cell phones in Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, Tennessee and Virginia.
Like most companies that serve California, the enTouch Wireless’ free government cell phone program gives gives one terrific deal for California, and another more moderate deal for the rest of the states it serves. Unless you live on Tribal land, and then you’ve hit the jackpot. Below is a summary of the plans:
Free Lifeline Plans
California – Unlimited talk, unlimited text, plus 3GB data, plus free smartphone
California (Tribal) – Unlimited talk, unlimited text, 5GB data, plus free smartphone
Kentucky – Unlimited talk, unlimited text, 1GB data
All other states – Unlimited texts, 1000 minutes, plus 100MB data
All other states (Tribal) – Unlimited talk, unlimited text, 1.5GB data, plus free smartphone
The company offers a number of Top-Up Plans. But in our opinion, they’re expensive (up to $50 per month). We’ve never had a reader tell us they were looking for a $50 per month. You can find them on the enTouch website, but there’s no reason to confuse the issue here. This website is called FreeGovernmentCellPhones.net, not $50PerMonthGovernmentCellPhones.net
enTouch Wireless shows its understanding of the free government cell phone business on its website when it says, “Stay in touch with your family, your community. enTouch Wireless, through the Lifeline Assistance Program, helps keep people safe, healthy, and connected to their community.”
We couldn’t have summed up this outstanding program any better ourselves.
