You many find that you qualify for the Lifeline Assistance program's free phone plans, but that none of the companies offer service where you live. Or perhaps the free phone plans you did find in your area aren't acceptable to you for one reason or another. The good news is that you have another option. The companies below, while not offering free cell phone plans, do offer substantial Lifeline discounts off their regular mobile phone plans in some states. If you can find one in your state you may be able to get a fantastic plan at a discount price:
Applicants in Nebraska, Colorado, and Arkansas can receive the federal discount of $9.25 as well as the additional state discount of $3.50. Residents in these states will be able to save $12.25 off of their Viaero Wireless plan.
