If you go to www.Safelinkwireless.com<http://www.Safelinkwireless.com> you can find out about a free cell phone program for people who are disabled and/or low income. It's a government program and gives them about 80 minutes a month, I think. It's not available in all states, so you have to enter their zip code and find out if they qualify. I have several consumers who have it and are happy with it. I think that with Lifeline though it's either/or--you can't have both Lifeline and this program, but if they could get rid of their land line, they could get this for free. ________________________________ From: visionrehabtherapist-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:visionrehabtherapist-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of deannaaustin2009@xxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, September 24, 2009 2:12 PM Cc: visionrehabtherapist@xxxxxxxxxxxxx; oandm@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx; aernet-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [visionrehabtherapist] telephones Hello VRT's Got a question for you. Workiong with a couple that barely use the telephone. They pay 25.00 per month for the phone (this includes the lifeline discount). They feel like they cannot afford this given how little they use it. Any suggestions on any phones or ideas that could lower their phone bill?
