Free Government Phones

Nevada: Listing of Free Government Phone Providers

Nevada residents who are having a difficult time paying their phone bills may qualify for the Federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and Lifeline programs.


Lifeline and ACP are Federal programs administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The purpose is to provide telephone service for low-income individuals and families. The phone assistance may come in the form of a free cell phone with free airtime/texting and data, or in discounted landline service.

While most phone companies participate in the landline monthly phone discount (just call your phone company and ask), not all companies offer free phones. Below is a listing of phone providers participating in the Lifeline and ACP government phone programs in the state of Nevada:

The above list may not a comprehensive list of phone companies providing free and discounted Lifeline service in Nevada, but it's a start. As we become aware of additional companies, they'll be added to the list. Similarly, if the companies no longer operate in the state, we'll delete them.

Nevada Lifeline Information: As of October 2022, 80% of Lifeline-eligible households have not enrolled. According to the Universal Service Administrative Company, only 20% are enjoying the benefit of free or discounted wireless and/or internet service.

Please share this information with anyone you know who could benefit.
