Update: SafeLink now has a competitor, and they're offering a better deal. See our post about Assurance Wireless.
SafeLink Wireless is now available to people who qualify for the federal Lifeline program in Georgia. As I've mentioned before, this is a free mobile phone and 68 free minutes/month for lower-income people who qualify. If you live in Georgia, read the FAQ for specific eligibility requirements and decide if this is a program for you.
(In a few days, I'll post an analysis about whether this is actually a good deal for CVM clients and other low-income people. Initial analysis indicates it's only a good financial deal if you never use more than the free minutes provided in the program. If you buy any more minutes, the cost/minute is more expensive than other carriers).
