About Safelink Wireless
Safelink Wireless, found online at SafelinkWireless.com, is a company which claims to be dedicated to making the cost to own and maintain a cell phone as low as possible, with no extra or unknown charges.
Similar to Assurance Wireless, Safelink Wireless is the parent company of Net10 and TracPhone Wireless, companies which are well known for providing cell phone services that are pre-paid and require no long term contracts.
Many consumers are hesitant to switch over from a major carrier to a pre-paid service, wondering if this service is legit or if there is potential for a scam. In fact, Safelink Wireless claims to be the largest No Contract cell service provider in the US, with over 18 million subscribers.
In addition, their website says they have contracts with Motorola, Nokia, LG, and Kyocera to give their customers access to high quality phones, as well as contracts with over 30 major carriers to provide their users with optimal coverage throughout the US.
However, Safelink Wireless also has a program which provides 250 free minutes of cell phone service each month to people who meet certain requirements. They have a basic explanation on their website of how to qualify for this service.
First, each state of residence will have different requirements that potential members must meet for qualification. But outside of this, there are some general standards that may indicate you are qualified for this program
The best indicators of whether this program may be for you is whether you participate in a state or federal support program, or through meeting the Income Poverty Guidelines as defined by the US Government. However, only one member of a household may qualify at any time.
After you determine whether or not you are qualified for your free monthly minutes, you then can choose whichever of their plans best fits your lifestyle, and since there are no contracts required, if you have complaints or issues with the service, you can stop at any time.
If you have any experience with this service, please leave your Safelink Wireless reviews below.

BUNCH OF IDIOTS. They shut my phone off / STOLE my minutes for SPITE. I THINK those people have a sickness and need help. They are all losers.Shut my phone off after i got out of hospital with open heart surgery, im 76 disabled and they still shut my services off, I HAD NO PHONE and didnt even realize those creeps shut phone off.. Said i didnt have any minutes, i had 980.Asked about the FREE phone that govt provides, they said " we stopped giving phones out,, GUESS WHAT? Its not for them to decide. Bought another phone a week later. Never turned services on or transferred minutes over to new phone.Had to call corp office in FLA, THEY ARE JUST AS STUPID, IGNORANT as those pos at safe link. After an hr. they decided to turn my services back on.Said application needed updated, told them i did that 4 times.Evertime i'd call, said didnt get my info. After 13 days, said they got it but couldnt read a number on snap card.so they shut my services off again.Said id have to re-enroll again even after i did that 4 times. I think they just do that for spite, and they are sick in the head. I hope they all get cancer and die soon for what they put me through.
Got a nice phone works great. But was given some ones number and keep getting call for someone else. How ever they did offer me a new sims card and number.
Got my phone 10 days ago. After 8 calls to customer service no one can figure out why i have no service. Don't use this company. They have no techincal experts at all and that came directly from a supervisor. After my experience it seems like a scam to me.
