How do I get a cheap or free smartphone (sometimes called a Lifeline smartphone)?

There are many ways to qualify for discounted or even free smartphone service through a government program. People making below the federal poverty line or receiving food stamps or Medicaid or Social Security income benefits among others are likely eligible. You can learn more and see if you qualify on this website. If you do qualify, then you will be able to sign up for discounted or free smartphone plans offered by third party vendors.
