FREE CELL PHONE PROGRAM often called Obama's cell phone program was in place long before Obama took office. Many have got two phone by enrolling in two programs. Budget Mobile Lifeline and SafeLink and give one or both to family members. WTF is the reasoning for a Lifeline anyway? A mexican store here in reno do not ask if you already have a free governemt cell phone because they don't want to know because he get $1 for every phone he gives out. (on wells street in reno) any illegal alien on food stamps can get one.
