Stop Paying Your Phone Bill: You Should Have FREE Cell Phone Service!

Major national phone carriers like to pretend you’re getting a good deal on a new phone, when in reality, they bake-in hidden charges throughout your lengthy contract. So, if you’re thinking of switching to a major phone carrier, you may not benefit much. Alternatively, if you stay with your current (major phone) provider, there’s still a possibility that you’re getting ripped off. Why? Oftentimes, customers get hit with activation and upgrade fees when they qualify for a new phone or extend their contract. However, low income individuals and households and people who are eligible for government benefit programs can enjoy FREE cell phone service.

So, without further ado, here are five reasons you shouldn’t be paying for your cell phone bill.

1. Participate in a Government Benefit Program

Government benefit programs, like Lifeline and the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) offer FREE cell phone service through providers, like Q Link Wireless.

The Lifeline Program, which has been around since the 1980s, provides low-income households and individuals access to discounted cellular services. Partnered with approved providers, like Q Link Wireless, you can receive FREE Data, Talk, & Text on one of America’s fastest 4G LTE/5G networks. Find out if you qualify for the Lifeline Program to experience FREE cell phone service.

The Affordable Connectivity Program is the latest government benefits program by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). It also provides low-income Americans access to monthly broadband services to stay connected to loved ones, work, school, 911 Emergency service calls and much more. When you sign up with Q Link Wireless to participate in the ACP, you experience FREE UNLIMITED Data, Talk, & Text on one of the nation’s fastest networks. Find out if you qualify for this government benefit program.

2. Cell Phone Service is Expensive

Mobile plans in the U.S. are among the most expensive in the world. Mobile data ranks the fourth most expensive across the globe, according to smallbitztrends.com. Additionally, major phone providers don’t make things easier for the consumer. Not only are you stuck with a lengthy contract, many consumers are constantly hit with hidden fees. As a consumer, it’s important that you understand the itemized fees on your phone bill. Try to differentiate the government mandated fees and taxes from the unnecessary charges added by your cellphone provider.

The other solution is to determine if you’re eligible for FREE cell phone service with Q Link Wireless. To be eligible for Lifeline or ACP, you must meet one of two requirements:

  1. Your income must be at or below 135% of the federal poverty level (FPL) for Lifeline and at or below 200% of the FPL for ACP in your state.
  2. You participate in a government assistance program, such as SNAP or Medicaid.

3. Your Cell Phone Provider is Sneaky!

This is a blanket statement, but it’s true for most major cell phone providers. For example, when you think you’re getting a phone for free or at a significantly discounted price, you often pay the full cost of the phone over the length of your contract, according to businessinsider.com. We have all been there before: a major provider offers a free or discounted phone with your new plan and you think you’re getting an amazing deal. Unfortunately, most companies raise their customer’s monthly payment to make up for the cost of the free phone. By the end of your contract, the provider’s hidden fees and baked-in charges may have you spending more than what the phone was originally worth.

4. What Happens if You Cancel Before Your Contract Expires?

That will be a big mistake – financially. If you cancel your service before your contract expires, you will still be stuck with a hefty remaining balance. Additionally, you may have to pay a price for exiting your contract, known as an early-termination fee. If you don’t get a better deal with another provider, cancelling your current service may be too costly.

5. You May be Eligible for FREE Cell Phone Service

You can switch over to a government service provider, such as Q Link Wireless and get FREE UNLIMITED Data, Talk, & Text on one of America’s fastest 4G LTE/5G networks. First, find out if you qualify for the Lifeline or Affordable Connectivity Programs. Again, you can qualify based on your income and participation in government assistance programs, such as SNAP, Medicaid, or WIC. Sign up is fast and easy! It takes less than five minutes and the approval process is simple. Once approved, you can bring your own phone (and number) to our network and enjoy FREE service.
