Free Government Phones

Bluesky Free Phone Service

Bluesky is a mobile and broadband company that services the American Samoan island. As a participant in the Federal Lifeline program, they offer eligible households 1,0000 local minutes and 4.5GB of data every month free of charge.


You have the option of purchasing a new phone or bringing your own phone. If you want to purchase a phone, you can choose one from their large online selection or stop by one of their locations. With the SIM card, however, you must stop by one of the stores to pick it up. There’s no online purchase option.

Qualifying for Benefits

To enjoy the benefit of free service, you have to be enrolled in Lifeline. To qualify for Lifeline, you must meet one of the following criteria:

  1. Participate in one of the following government assistance programs:

    • ASNAP Supplemental
    • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
    • Medicaid
    • Federal Public Housing (FPHA)
    • Veteran’s Pension


  2. Have a household income at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

Applying for Bluesky Lifeline Benefits

Once you meet the eligibility criteria, the next step is to assemble the necessary documentation to apply for Lifeline. You’ll need proof of program or income eligibility and you’ll need proof of identity. In addition to proof of identity, you need proof that you are alive. Below is a listing of acceptable documents to use as proof:

Acceptable Documents

When you have the necessary documents, go to the National Verifier website and apply. Your application should be approved within 20 to 30 minutes (if your documentation is in order). Once approved, you can apply for free service at Bluesky.

A Few Lifeline Stipulations

  1. You can only have one Lifeline benefit per household.

  2. To keep your benefits, you must use the service at least once every 30 days. Not doing so will cause you to lose your benefits.

  3. You will have to recertify annually to prove you still meet the eligibility requirements.
