Cellular One Lifeline Program
Along with other wireless carriers, CellularOne (www.cellularone.com) participates in Federal Communications Commission initiative of enabling low-income people with modern communication technologies. Hence, the company services thousands of its subscribers now.
To be eligible for a free Cellular One phone or smartphone (as per your choice) one needs to live in Utah, Arizona or New Mexico and be sure that not he/she or any other member of the same family (household) is already enrolled with Lifeline. However, it is not the only condition. Similar with other providers, Lifeline program from this carrier is accessible only for qualifying applicants. The program suggests two ways for enrollment.
The first one is based on current government assistance programs participation. Today, anyone with a small income can be engulfed by the wave of authorities’ aid initiatives. If you currently get help from the aid initiatives like Federal Public Housing Assistance, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps), Headstart, Medicaid, Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, National School Free Lunch Program, Navajo Nation Program for Self Reliance, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Tribal General Assistance, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Tribal Food Distribution Program and others (please, refer to the complete list at www.cellularoneonline.com), you might be eligible for a no cost Lifeline plan with CellularOne.
Another way for to enroll in one of the costless CellularOne plans is to apply for a program based on the household yearly income amount. If you can show a proof by providing a supporting financial document that the total income of the household you reside in is less than 150% (for NM and AZ) or 135% (UT) of that outlined in Federal Poverty Guidelines, you are very likely to succeed in your application process.
Qualification for a free government phone from Cellular One is a chain of actions with three links: application form, certifying form, submission.
Cellular One Application Form. You need to fill out either the program-based form or the income-based form depending on your status. Both are available on the website. Each form contains the fields with the basic information about you and your life standing information, and usually does not take too much time to fill out.
Certifying form. If there is someone living with you who receives a Lifeline-based help, you need to fill out a multi-household form.
