The world has become more mobile, and cell phones become the most important communication device out there. However, cell phones can also be very expensive or even outright unaffordable for many families and individuals, which is why the government has worked together with Virgin Mobile to help you get free cell phone services through the ReachOut Wireless program.

California has become the latest state to receive ReachOut Wireless’ expansion, the eighteenth state across the United States to become a qualifying state for this program. If you live anywhere in those eighteen states, you might want to check to see if you or the person you are applying for are eligible for the program in the state you are applying at, as regulations and eligibility might differ from state to state. As a general rule, however, you are most likely to qualify for ReachOut Wireless if you are a participant of government assistance programs such as Food Stamp, Medicaid, or Supplemental Security Income. And even if you are not, it does not mean that you will not qualify for ReachOut, as it also screens applicants based on their income. If your household income is below or at 135-150% of your state’s Federal Poverty Guideline, you are most likely to be eligible for ReachOut even if you are not an active participant of any government assistance programs.

With ReachOut, there is absolutely no hidden fees involved. Simply complete the application from and if your application is approved a cell phone will be sent to you in as little as ten business days without you having to spend even a dollar for it. Your cell phone minutes will also be recharged monthly and automatically without any caveats, and some plans even include carryover minutes!
