Lifeline service[edit]

Q Link Wireless provides service for low-income-eligible individuals who do not already have a Lifeline account. The Lifeline service is funded through the Universal Service Fund. The Lifeline program is available to eligible low-income consumers in every state, territory, commonwealth, and on Tribal land.[4] Applications for service can be made through the Q Link Wireless homepage, by telephone, or by mailing or faxing the application form. Q Link Wireless is contracted with Sprint as a Mobile Virtual Network Operator. [5]

Customers may purchase more minutes once their free monthly benefit is exhausted.[6]

Lifeline phone plans[edit]

Q Link Wireless offers a general Lifeline phone plan called “Always On Plan”.[7]

Q Link Wireless offers free or discounted service to eligible Americans who are currently enrolled in a government benefit program or meet certain low-income requirements for their state. Government benefit programs that meet qualifications are standard and set by FCC, but commonly include Food Stamps (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), Medicaid, and Supplemental Security Income.[8]
