Montana: Listing of Free Government Phone Providers
If you live in the state of Montana and meet the eligibility requirements, you can apply for a free government cell phone made possible by the Lifeline program and Affordable Connectivity Program. Originally, qualified residents could choose between a free phone that comes with free talk/text and data, or a discount on landline service. However, now, with the creation of the Affordable Connectivity Program, there are additional options such as receiving a free or deeply discounted tablet along with free internet service.
A large number of phone service providers offer the monthly landline discount through Lifeline, but not all companies offer free wireless phones. If you're interested in the discount, call your phone company to see if they participate. However, if your preference is a free phone, below is a listing of phone providers currently offering free wireless service in the state of Montana:
This list is by no means an exhaustive list of all the free and discounted Lifeline phone providers in the state of Montana, but it is a start. The Lifeline program is a moving target and constantly changing and improving. As more providers become available, this list will be updated.
Montana Factoid: In the state of Montana, as of October 2022, only 2% of the Lifeline-eligible families have actually applied for the free phone benefit. Yep, of the 120,659 eligible households, only 2,434 are taking advantage of the program. That means that 98% of eligible families are still struggling unnecessarily to pay their cell phone/internet bills. You can find this information on the USAC website.
