It doesn't pay for the cable, but does provide a discount yes.

I understand your frustration, but our company works with the elderly, disabled veterans, enlisted soldiers, and such ones, to provide them with a benefit that is available, and they can qualify for.

These programs are not just for those who abuse the system, which I admit does happen.

A new recruit, if married, qualifies for assistance when they enlist. That is food for thought.

i happen to have one of these phones. NO, i am not on welfare, NO, i dont get any DHHR assisstance.I have busted my a$$ since i was 14 doing hard manual labor, either in construction, underground, and the military. I lost my knee during Dessert Storm, broke my back in construction, and survived a rib roll in working in the mines. i am now totally disabled, living with crippling pain every day for the rest of my life, and i'm only 44 yrs old.you only get 67 minutes added to the phone the first of evey month. this helps when i'm deciding whether to eat or pay bills every month from a small check i get. so please get some info on something before you go slamming it, this phone is the only way i keep in touch with my family and dr. appt's. jeeezzz
assurance gives you 250 minutes

well, my thougts are that I have a full time job in which I also pay taxes! I have two children who I work very hard to support.. They both recieve chips cards to help with medical expenses.. I
was thinking about applying for the low income cell phone program in which I think is a wonderful program, one in which MY tax dollars are helping with also... There are alot of low income families in this country, what about the families with children who are recieving foodstamps, another program that I think is wonderful, do you feel that there innocent children do not deserve to eat? Well I think they are all wonderful programs, I agree that there are some people that probably do use the program, but there are alot of people who do work there butts off and still recieve these programs, so please to not judge these people until you walk a mile in there shoes!!!
heather try assurance they give you 250 minutes every month and for $20 you can add 750 voice minutes and 1000 text messages bot it dont get a signal in the matoaka area

U know who ppl that complain about what others get make me think of. Children first graders look there someone got something I didn't. I don't blame ppl for what they get are their ppl who abuse sure are. Always will always have ppl have away of doing that like years ago with army drafts ppl fled not to do it too. Let's blame on the high number of ppl on assictance being on not enough jobs gas prices being so high on our government. Y blame ppl you don't like the problem find away to fix it. All this huffing and whining gets so old. Let complain about big issues like teens having babies ,the drop out rate in school that even with a degree you can't find work. Let's talk about something besides this. About teens taking their life's for being picked on. That what all you ppl are bullies which means u voice this crap in front of your kids than they repeat it. They pick on someone for being poor or different. Shame on you same on you all. Take Care of your own homes and stay out of others and this world may get better. I bet all you " happy hard working ppl " have thing you would not want dragged through the mud. Get a life

All Lifeline providers offer 250 minutes. They all sell extra airtime.

ReachOut Wireless offers UNLIMITED talk & text for only $26.50/mn. Safelink and Assurance are VERY high considering the limited minutes they offer at such a high price.

I think the phone thing is crap, what did we do when we didnt have cell phones? We didnt need them then and dont need them now. I get assistance (food stamps and a medical card for my daughter) but I also work a full time job and Im going to school to be a CNA. I have been asked if i wanted the cell phone help, i decided not to since its not a necessity for me. I pay the $50 at att for unlimited everything (its wonderful). I dont want to get anything extra than what I need, I keep thinking "what if one day I really need that stuff"

Not everyone chooses this to be poor of really have a choice. I have a friend who had his housd burnt down by some young retarded kids. He didn't have insurance and he doesn't really have any family to help him. He had no choice but to get help from the Dhhr. He gets this phone program and I think he deserves it. He worked all his life and paid taxes. It's sad cause he lost his job also when all this happened. He couldn't afford work clothes and his job didn't supply him any with out buying them from them. People love to kick people when they are down. Whatever happened to helping people. Life can throw anyone a curve ball and you might just find yourself ashamed and in the line at the Dhhr because it seems like they are the only place people can turn to when they are down and out of luck.

My attitude is that cell phones are a luxury, not a necessity. From my understanding this program provides a set amount of minutes, and the phones are refurbished, not I phones or anything. Im afraid it will be like everything else creates to help people, it will be abused and manipulated by deviant people for personal gain.

God Bless you all and remember this, you Americans started all of this, If you stay out of our counties, maybe we will stop coming to yours. You all are as much as immigrants as we are.

First of all, I don't think I'd be bragging if I was almost 30 years old and so broke that my parents still have to pay for my cell phone. Second, from your earlier post, 99.5 percent of welfare recipients are far from sexy. Have you been in that place? Personal hygiene (including dental hygiene) isn't a very high priority for most of them. And third, I also wouldn't be bragging about having four kids (probably by four different men), whose daddies probably didn't stick around and that's why your parents are paying your bills.

Ppl like u ^ make other wvians look bad, there goes that genetic inbred wv gene thats in most of you, not all, just most, did I hit a nerve sweetie?

With for longer & served a few tours in Iraq with the 82nd airborne division and is yr younger than I, which screwed him up far worse than he was, so...we seperated, eventually got divorced, and I am not broke, short on cash yessss but not broke, met a guy had my last child, still with him...so....u were saying? I also can assume like a blundering idiot, u my dear, are probably a fat, ugly, 5 chinned, spinster whos only friend is topix,who probably is sooo jealous right about now u want to caps lock me to death bahaha would u like to compare photos? Yes, I married out of hs,, so I have to go back to college, cuz again, I was holding down the fort & caring for our kids.
