Dartphone Free Government Phone Plans

DartphoneDartphone is a wireless phone and internet provider servicing the state of Oklahoma. As a participant of both the Lifeline and Affordable Connectivity Programs (ACP), they offer phone and internet discounts to eligible low-income Oklahoma households and individuals.

Lifeline and ACP Discounts

Lifeline provides phone discounts of up to $9.25 per month. However, for those living on qualified Tribal lands, the discounts may go up to $34.25 per month. Some wireless phone providers include a free smartphone as part of their Lifeline plan. Fortunately, Dartphone is one of those companies that offer free government phones.

The Affordable Connectivity Program provides discounts of up to $30 for broadband (internet) service. And similar to the Lifeline plan, eligible individuals/households living on qualified Tribal lands may receive a discount of up to $75 per month.

The beauty of the two programs is if you qualify for Lifeline you automatically qualify for ACP. Enrolling in both programs, will not only get discounted phone service with a free smartphone but you get discounted internet service too.
