TAG Mobile Now Offers Lifeline-Supported Phone Service in Six New States

TAG Mobile now offers its TAG Mobile Lifeline service in six new states. The new states where the company is now offering the service include Kansas, Michigan, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.

TAG Mobile is an independent company that participates in the federal Lifeline program. The Lifeline program was created by the Federal Communications Commission in 1985 to provide a discount on phone service for qualifying low-income consumers. The purpose is to ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that phone service brings. To participate in the program, consumers must have an income that is at or below 135% of the federal Poverty Guidelines or participate in a qualifying state, federal or Tribal assistance program.

The TAG Mobile Lifeline Service provides a cell phone stocked with a pre-set allotment of monthly minutes of use.It is intended to provide access to local emergency services and community resources, to enable vital communications with business and social services. These phones come with text-messaging enabled, caller ID and voicemail. TAG Mobile allows customers to purchase value-based prepaid plans if they use all of their free monthly Lifeline minutes.

"TAG Mobile provides free mobile phones through a grassroots marketing approach across multiple states which help ensure that qualified Lifeline participants have a means of communication. With the economy being the way it is, and unemployment at an all-time high, many families are forced to go without some basic necessities. A cell phone stocked with minutes allows them to get in touch with bosses or potential employers, stay in touch with family and access important services like 911 emergency services and 211 community resources," says Frank Del Col, CEO of TAG Mobile.
