True Wireless offers unknown talk, unknown texts, and unknown data.

True Wireless serves the states of Arkansas, Maryland, Oklahoma, Rhode Island and Texas by providing Lifeline Assistance cell phones to the financially disadvantaged. These government cell phone plans are completely free in all five states. Unfortunately, we have no idea what those plans are.
True Wireless Plans
Why not? Because True Wireless is the only free government cell phone company that does not clearly spell out all its Lifeline and ACP plans on its website. In fact, it is just the opposite. In order to find out what plans are available in your state, True requires you to first fill out an application and submit it. It is outrageous that any company should require a potential customer to submit their full name, the last four of their social security number, date of birth, drivers license number, email address and phone number before they will tell that customer what products it offers. We think it’s an outrageous invasion of a potential customer’s privacy.
Based on this fact alone, we would suggest that you consider any other Lifeline/ACP service provider.
C’mon, True! When you get serious about serving the public, we’ll gladly revise this page.
