Cintex Wireless Lifeline & ACP Plans
Since Cintex Wireless participates in the Lifeline and Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), it can offer attractive low/no-cost wireless plans to qualified households. These plans include free smartphones and/or deeply discounted tablets.
Currently, Cintex offers a free device with the purchase of a tablet at the discounted price of $10.01. In addition to the devices, you may qualify for free unlimited service. Which plan you qualify for depends on whether you’re enrolled in just Lifeline, just ACP, or both.
