Free Cell Phone and Airtime
From their website:
SafeLink Wireless is a government supported program that provides a free cell phone and airtime each month for income-eligible customers.
I recently signed up for it myself so I could have a cell phone for emergencies and it was very easy to do. I received the phone about a week after signing up. I activated the phone and found that I will get 70 minutes/month (which varies by state) and the minutes roll over to the next month. It's a very basic phone, but it does have text, voicemail, 3-way calling, call waiting, caller ID....)
For more information and to sign up, check out the SafeLink Wireless website. And here is a fact sheet about the phones and the program itself.
