What is SafeLink Wireless?
Recently, we have been getting many requests for information on free cell phones, and how to apply. The only application available on-line is on the above website. It is a government supported program that provides a free cell phone and airtime each month for income-eligible customers.

You may want to alert patrons that they have to give their name, address, birthday, and the last four digits of your social security number. (note: only the last 4) Ultimatley, the decision to release even this information is up to the patron.

Through some research we were able to discover that you do NOT have to fill out the Safelink form on their website. Patrons can call this number to sign up by phone: 800-977-3768
