Eligible Residents Receive 250 Free Minutes From Assurance

On Sunday, May 13, moms across the country will be getting a lot of attention from their children, from gifts to out of town visits and phone calls. Mother’s and Father’s Day are wonderful times of the year to get in touch with parents, of course, but what about those who cannot afford a way to stay connected given their financial challenges?

For those who need help to be in touch with loved ones, there is a smart, free way to do so. Assurance Wireless is a program that offers a free wireless phone and 250 minutes of free wireless voice service each month for national, local and long-distance calling to eligible residents of the 32 states where Assurance is available.
