Cell phone companies that work with the Free Phones for Low-Income Families program

Here are the states where the top companies partner with Lifeline Assistance to provide free government phones, rack up free monthly minutes, and/or set up a landline at a reduced rate. Although many of the following companies will offer network coverage in most of the country, you will be able to purchase their services only if they have business operations in your state.

When you find the company that you consider appropriate, press the link that will take you to the official website so that you can see in greater detail all the services that said company offers and at what costs.

Once you are on the website of the chosen company, you can begin the application process. This can be by phone or online. If available, we recommend this last option because you will be able to supply any documentation that is required by the company in a simple and fast way.
