Sprocket Wireless is one of those one-state free government cell phone companies. In fact, they only serve a few relatively rural areas of Oklahoma.
You can get a Lifeline Assistance cell phone is you live in or around the Stigler, Checotah, Eufaula, Canadian, Crowder, Savannah, Muskogee, McAlester, Idabel, Hugo, Broken Bow, Pawhuska, Fairfax, Henryetta, Okemah, Dustin, Indianola and Seminole areas.
We’re not sure how a company this small competes with the big boys in the free government cell phone business, but we admire the David vs. Goliath spirit that obviously drives them.
Here’s how the company describes itself: “Sprocket Wireless was created in 1997 to give customers an alternative to large cellular contracts and restrictions. As a rural regional carrier, Sprocket has worked hard to provide an exceptional customer service experience that can’t be found at larger nationwide chains.”
Unlimited Voice and Text for $1 a month
Of course, like all other Lifeline Assistance companies in Oklahoma, Sprocket charges $1 per month for the same cell phone program that is free in most other states. We really have no idea why some states demand this oddball billing scheme, since the monthly paperwork must be cost prohibitive. But as they used to say back in the 70’s, “It is what it is.” Just $1 per month for a free government cell phone and unlimited voice and text per month is still a deal that can’t be beat.
If you want to know more about Sprocket Wireless or if you live in the company’s service area and want to sign up for a free government cell phone account, just drop in to one of its nine convenient retail locations: They located in Tahlequah, Muskogee, McAlester, Warner, Checotah, Stigler, Valliant, Idabel and Hugo.
