Daily Freebie: Free Virgin Mobile Phone
Virgin Mobile has a sweet deal for low income families. Virgin announced the launch of Assurance Wireless, a new cell phone service that makes wireless calling available at no cost to more than a million eligible lower-income households throughout New York. Virgin is partnering with non-profit organization HeartShare Human Services in New York City to introduce this new service that provides more free minutes per month than other similar prepaid programs.
Qualifying Assurance Wireless customers in New York State can now receive a free Kyocera Jax handset and 200 minutes of free wireless local and long-distance calling within the United States every month. Assurance Wireless also provides customers with free voicemail, call waiting, caller ID, and access to 911 in case of emergency. Beyond the free 200 minutes, customers can choose to pay for additional 20-cent per minute domestic calling, international calling, 15-cent text, email or instant messages, mobile Web access, and more.
To learn more about Assurance Wireless, including eligibility requirements, please call 1-888-898-4888, or visit www.assurancewireless.com. Information is available in English and Spanish. Customers eligible for Assurance Wireless include those eligible for or receiving Medicaid, Food Stamps/SNAP, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA) or Section 8, Low Income Home Energy Assistance (LIHEAP) or the National School Lunch Program’s Free Lunch Program.
