What FeelSafe Offers
With the FeelSafe Lifeline plan, you’ll get 1,000 talk minutes, 500 texts and 500 MB of data. There are two exceptions, however. For individuals living on Tribal land in Oklahoma, the plan offers unlimited talk, unlimited text and 3.5GB of data.
In California, there are two plan options:
For informational purposes:
All plans in each state include 3-way calling, voicemail, caller ID, call forwarding, call waiting and free calls to customer service.
Purchasing Additional Talk/Text/Data (Top Up)
Receiving free talk, text and data is great, but there is a possibility that you’ll need more time or data. If so, you can purchase additional time/data on an as-needed basis. To get a better understanding of how much time to purchase, listed below is the per unit cost for using the phone.
Talk: $.10 per minute
With the above information in mind, Top Ups are available starting as low as $5 to as much as $50. The available Top Up increments are $5, $10, $20, $30 and $50. So for example, if you purchase a Top Up of $5, that would give you 50 minutes of talk time or 50 SMS messages or 50 MMS messages or 200 MB of data. Of course, you’ll probably mix and mingle and have something like 20 talk minutes plus 10 SMS messages and 10 SMS messages and 40 MB of data, depending on your usage.
