What is an Obama Phone?

obama phone

Over the last couple of years, the term “Obama Phone” has been thrown around very loosely.  The basic premise to the term Obama Phone is a free government cell phone through a program called LifeLine.

Budget Mobile participates in the LifeLine Cell Phone program commonly known as an Obama Phone by offering qualified low-income individuals with a free cell phone that includes free cell phone service.  To qualify for a free cell phone with free cell phone service, individuals must qualify by meeting a certain income requirement that is designated by each state.  In general, individuals can qualify for an Obama Phone / LifeLine Phone with Budget Mobile if they are participating through a federal or state run financial assistance program. 

Examples of Qualifying Financial Assistance Programs

  • Medicaid
  • Food Stamps (SNAP)
  • Federal Housing Assistance
  • Supplemental Security Income
  • National School Lunch (Free version only)
  • Low Income Home Energy Assistance

Benefits of an Obama Phone 

The concept of an Obama Phone is to help someone who is less fortunate to get back on his or her feet and be financially stable.  This means that instead of worrying about how someone is going to pay their cell phone bill, they can transition that effort to focus on providing for their families and themselves.  This also means that instead of worrying about the cost of cell phone minutes and text messages, they can spend that extra time on the phone that might be needed for a job interview over the phone, which in turn helps them become more financially stable.  Obama Phones or LifeLine Phones also help people in communicating with babysitters, doctors offices, tow truck drivers, and other service providers in which it is almost always necessary to have a phone to communicate with.
