California: Get Unlimited Talk and Unlimited Text, plus 100 MB Data.
Oklahoma Tribal: Get Unlimited Talk and Unlimited Text, plus 500 MB Data!
FeelSafe Wireless is the brand name of the free government cell phone program offered by Air Voice Wireless. The service is available in California, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Wisconsin. And the company has some terrific plans for anyone in these states.
(As an aside, we think FeelSafe is one of the best names in the free government cell phone business because it perfectly describes the idea behind the Lifeline Assistance program. The program was designed to help cash-strapped Americans get cell phones that help them stay in touch with their children and parents, help them communicate with their doctors, and help them land jobs in these tough economic times. If that’s not a perfect description of “FeelSafe”, we don’t know what would be.)
What do you get from FeelSafe?
Of course, you start with a free cell phone. And at a minimum, you’ll get 500 voice minutes and 500 texts every month, plus at least 500MB of data. But that’s just a start with FeelSafe. Take a look at all there plans.
California Plan: Take your choice of unlimited talk and text or unlimited talk and text PLUS 2GB of data and 100 international SMS messages per month. And, of course, you get a free smart phone.
Oklahoma Plan (tribal): Unlimited talk, unlimited texts, unlimited SMS, plus 3.5G of data.
Oklahoma Plan (non-tribal): You get a free phone, 1000 minutes of talk, 500 texts, and 500MB of data.
All other FeelSafe Wireless states: You get a free smart phone, 1000 voice minutes, 500 texts and 500MB of data allowance each month.
Each FeelSafe account also comes with free 911/E911 Access, a free voicemail account, free Caller ID, free Call Waiting, free 3-Way Calling, free Text Messaging, free Call Forwarding, and Free Calls to Customer Service. We’d say you get a lot for your money, but since this is the free government cell phone program, we have to amend that to “You get a lot for absolutely nothing.”
