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 four states.
True Wireless Plans
Arkansas, Maryland, Rhode Island
Free cell phone, 1000 minutes of talk, 1000 texts, and 2BG data per month
Oklahoma (Non-tribal plan)
Free cell phone, 1750 minutes of talk, 2000 texts, 2GB data per month
For reasons we cannot begin to explain, True’s website says that it does not offer service in Texas, but that service is offered by its sister-company, SurgePhone. It doesn’t matter to us which company provides the service, and we doubt that it will make any difference to you, either, as long as you get your free phone service. Here are SurgePhone’s Texas plans:
Texas Value Plan (Free)
Free cell phone, 10 hours of free talk, unlimited texts, plus 1GB data per month
Texas Sweet Plan ($10 per month)
Free cell phone, 20 hours of free talk, unlimited texts, plus 2GB data per month
Texas Boss Plan ($35 per month)
Free cell phone, unlimited talk, unlimited texts, plus unlimited data each month
How to Qualify for True Wireless
The qualifications to get a phone from True Wireless are the same as for the other companies in the same states. You probably qualify if:
(1) You already participate in another State or Federal assistance program such as food stamps, public housing, or Medicaid (and others). Each state page on our site has the eligibility criteria.
(2) Your household income is at or below 135% to 150% of the poverty level according to your state and/or the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
