    I would like to de-enroll my cell Lifeline service with Amgoo. They are not listed within the list of providers. The cell phone sucks the buttons are difficult to press, you cannot see your minutes or check your minutes, difficulty with texting. There is no customer support. They are listed in , CHINA, HONDURAS, COLOMBO, and SRI LANKA. and Emails to them fail. Concerned that the phone will not have minutes, but still be in the database as active, and this will prevent getting another service. Who can I reach out to have my Lifeline transferred to another provider. I have medical issues and do not have a home phone. Please help
