In today's world, having a cell phone is no longer a luxury but a necessity. And this applies to everyone regardless of income or education levels. The ability to stay connected is essential for accessing job opportunities, healthcare services, and emergency assistance, among other benefits.
But purchasing and keeping a smartphone is not cheap. And for low income families in Oklahoma who already need to set aside a substantial portion of their monthly budget to fulfil other financial obligations, the cost for cell phone service could well be a burden that they find difficult to afford.
If you're also feeling the pain, you will sure find this guide on free cell phones for low income in Oklahoma useful. So without further delay, let us help you start saving today!
FREE Smartphone with EASY Wireless
In Oklahoma, you can take advantage of various government programs and initiatives that provide free or discounted cell phone services as long as you meet specific eligibility criteria.
One of these programs is the Lifeline Assistance program set up by the Federal Government. The program is designed to help eligible customers connect to our country's communications networks and access local emergency services with subsidised monthly phone service.
On the other hand, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a program that provides a one-time discount for electronic gadget purchase and ongoing subsidy for internet service for low income households.
At EASY Wireless, our goal is to help you take full advantage of these two programs. Qualified customers in Oklahoma will not only be eligible for the following exciting benefits once they sign up for Lifeline service and ACP with us, but they will also receive a brand new FREE Smartphone!

How Do I Qualify for the Lifeline Program?
The Lifeline program is available to eligible low income consumers that either have an income that is at or below 135% of the federal poverty guidelines or participate in certain government assistance programs, such as:
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, or food stamps)
- Federal Public Housing Assistance
- Supplemental Security Income
- Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit
- Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance
- Tribal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (Tribal TANF)
- Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations
The program now only allows one lifeline benefit per household. Eligible consumers have to recertify their eligibility annually and those who fail to do so will be de-enrolled. More details about qualification can be found here.
Am I Eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)?
A household is eligible for the ACP program if the household income is at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines, or if a household member is eligible for certain government benefits such as food stamps, veterans pension, and tribally administered temporary assistance programs. The full list of criteria can be found here.
