Assist Wireless Free Government Phones
Assist Wireless offers free Smartphones (or you can bring your own phone) because they participate in the Lifeline program. And, because they also participate in the Affordable Connectivity Program, they offer unlimited data, text, and talk plans for free. Which plan you qualify for depends on whether you enrolled in Lifeline only, ACP only, or in both programs.
Currently, their nationwide service is offered in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Maryland, and Missouri. If you live in one of those states and meet the eligibility criteria, you may choose from one of the following plans:
Arkansas, Missouri, and Non-Tribal Oklahoma Plans
Lifeline & ACP Plan
Lifeline & ACP Plan
Lifeline Only Plan
Tribal Lifeline & ACP Plan
If you select a plan that does not include unlimited Data, Talk, and Text and you use the allotted data/talk/text, Assist Wireless has refill options as follows:
Lifeline and ACP Eligibility

Additional Programs if living on Tribal lands:
For more information on qualifying programs, visit the Consumer Eligibility page of the USAC website.
Applying for Lifeline/ACP
If you meet the eligibility requirement, you will need proof that you do. The documented proof must be current. In addition to proof of your eligibility, you must provide proof of your identity. In other words, you must prove that you are who you say you are. Identity proof is usually some type of government-issued ID card, such as a driver’s license, current US military ID, or unexpired permanent resident or resident alien card to name a few.
The last item you’ll need is proof of address. Using a utility bill, current mortgage or lease statement, or driver’s license will satisfy the proof of address requirement.
After you have gathered the necessary documents, visit the National Verifier site to sign up for Lifeline. Once your application is approved, visit Assist Wireless and sign up for the free service. You can sign up online, at an Assist Wireless store (all located in Oklahoma) or call them at 1-855-392-7747.
To find out the status of your application, you can either log into your online account, visit a store or call and speak to a Customer Service Rep.
