Alphabetical List of Free Phone and/or Tablet Providers
Please note, these free government phone and tablet providers are not country wide. Although these phone companies have nationwide networks, many are limited to offering service in local areas.
You will note that some wireless providers offer free government phones or tablets while others do not. They all participate in the Lifeline program, however, not all of them participate in the Affordable Connectivity Programs. As such, you will note the free service plans offered vary. Make sure you select a plan that best suits your needs.
One thing we've noticed over the years is that more and more companies advertise their Affordable Connectivity Program benefits and less so with Lifeline. Sometimes you have to dig through the fine print to find a company's stance on Lifeline benefits.
We're still in the process of developing this site and adding providers to the list. Please be patient (and check back often). In the meanwhile, you can visit the providers we have listed below:
In addition to the free and discounted programs listed here, please be advised that there is a free government program to help the hearing impaired. The name of the program is Clear Caption. If you have been diagnosed as hearing impaired, you should consider signing up with Clear Caption.
