Anyone on food stamps or low income
« on: April 14, 2012, 01:32:39 pm »
Should check out safe link. It gives you a free cell phone and up to 250 minutes a month free. Takes about ten days to get te phone in and is super easy to fill out the for. I have an iPhone 4s but my mom and dad have pay as you go phones so I got them one to help em out with bills. It's all free

Another government-subsidized boondoggle for which tax-payers are footing the bill, (meaning it isn't really "free").
One can lead a horse to water however, if one holds the horse's head under, that horse will drown.

For one thing, no one 'owns' a topic; which means that anyone else can post to it if wished. For another, your advice to mooch off of the government teet during a time of deficit government spending is idiotic. Lastly, you posted an off-topic subject in the "offers" forum, (which adds to the contention that you are not very intelligent and someone whose opinions have no value to me).

Thanks for sharing the tip.  I always appreciate info like that.  I never wanted to get in the system, but I'm grateful that there's a system to get into.  We're all in this together and we need to help each other however we can, even if that's just through our taxes.   :heart: :peace:

For the record, some programs are funded by private grants, not taxes.   :star:

Personally I have a Tracfone already that I carry for emergencies.  You can keep one active, with the same number, for a minimum of $80 a year and if you watch the dollar store ads you can pick a nice one up for $10.   :thumbsup:

SafeLink Wireless applies the Universal Service Fund subsidy to an allotment of free airtime minutes and TracFone provides the wireless handset at the company’s expense. Instead of receiving a subsidized monthly telephone bill for Lifeline service, SafeLink converts the total amount of discounted service into minutes each month for one year. Funding for the U.S.F. comes from telecom companies who add a monthly charge to customer's bills, (which means we're paying for other people's Safelink service and their ISPs).

That's nice.  I researched them too.  I said "some programs", I didn't specify which ones.   ::)

Indeed you did say "some" without specifying, (of course the context was the U.S.F. and Safelink service, but hey).

Generally "free to one person" means someone else is paying for it one way or another thru taxes or added on to a bill.  Look at all of the extra charges on your phone bill sometime.

Obviously you have more money than you have sense. Some people are not so fortunate. It's OK if you have no compassion for others. That is your right but you don't have to be rude to someone who is only trying to help people who are really struggling. I am on government assistance and I have one of those "free" phone services. However, I am almost to the point of not needing it anymore. My income is improving monthly. I would like to mention that I paid my bills along with everyone else for most of my life until life sent me a temporary bump in the road. I paid into these funds for years so I don't feel bad about having to get assistance myself. Why not, I paid for it already. You seem to think that you are better than others. We are all equal as human beings. Someday you will need someone's help whether it be from the government, your family, your friends or from strangers. It happens to all of us sooner or later. With your attitude, will there be anyone willing to help you? If you think it doesn't apply to you, just wait. Life happens and you're not exempt.    :angry7:

Currently unemployed and actively looking for work. Interested in this cell phone service. Is it all free? Is it reliable? Is there an internet address?

Just wondering....I am new here and still working my way around, but every time I have gone into a forum discussion there seems to be a lot of rudeness. Is this typical here in the forums? ???

Not in general. I have not been a member for a very long time but it seems to be a good place. Lots of good help in the forum but, there are those that wake up in a bad mood sometimes. I try to overlook the rudeness and treat others as I would like to be treated.

Thanks newgrandpa....I try to avoid a lot of negativity and if that was the case, I was just going to plan on staying away from the forum. Good advice however!

Don't forget about the paid to post bonus of $3. Just read the paid to post rules and you will do well. The rules are in "paid to post" at the top of the forum main page in case you did not know.
