U.S. Connect is a Texas-based company that makes free government cell phones available in Arkansas, Maryland and West Virginia. If you live in any of those states, check out the company’s various programs.
Before we get into the various plans offered by U.S. Connect, we need to give you a little background on how the Lifeline Assistance companies work. Basically, the government pays each company $9.25 per account per month. Most of those companies “charge” their customers $9.25 per month, but apply the $9.25 government payment against that price, zeroing out the cost and offering cell phone service to their customers for free.
We only tell you this so you’ll understand the prices of the various plans offered by U.S. Connect, because their plans aren’t explained as simply as other companies’ plans.
U.S. Connect will give you 250 minutes/texts per month for $9.25 but they apply the standard $9.25 discount so the end result is that you pay $0. Other plans allow you to get more minutes for extra payment (see below).
|PLAN||WHAT YOU GET||COST||YOUR COST|
|Value Plan||250 Minutes/Texts||$9.25||Free|
|Great Value Plan||500 Minutes/Texts||$19.25||$10.25|
|Supreme Value Plan||1000 Minutes/Texts||$39.25||$30.00|
In addition to your free cell phone, U.S. Connect also gives you unlimited 911, caller ID, call waiting, voicemail, and live customer service agents.
But what if you need more than the standard 250 minutes per month? Well, U.S. Connect offers you several affordable packages that let you add extra minutes to your account. Check out these offers:
