Distribution is a big business in this area. They need ways to communicate. Beware any Government program has its ways of checking up on you. Big brother is listening to you.

The free cell phone plan is the next generation of the Lifeline service for landline phones originally implemented by Ronald Reagan back in the 1980s. We are living in the wireless age, so it makes sense to offer poor people free cell phones instead of affordable landline service. By the way, I've seen one of these phones and they are by no means expensive or "cool." A kid would be embarrassed to own one of these phones. The phones do not have cameras or Internet access, and users can only send a limited number of text messages each month. I also heard a girl say she always had dropped calls when she used her phone and that the battery was always dying.

These phones are nothing to be jealous of if you have a job and can afford a nice phone, but some people can't afford the thirty dollars it costs each month for a basic cell phone plan. It is hard to imagine that anybody would be stupid enough to brag about owning a welfare phone, especially when most people on welfare these days have iPhones and Blackberries.

I agree. Anybody who thinks the good life is living in Cornhill and getting a 600 dollar crazy check each month is just plain STUPID.
