Since the rising popularity of Assurance Wireless, ReachOut Wireless, and Safelink Wireless, there have been many new providers added  the LifeLine Assistance Program.  All offer similar benefits and option for purchasing airtime.  There have been upgrades where providers have gone from an offer of 67 minutes a month to 250.  It is official; the program is a success and reaching many people who need and appreciate this help.  The providers who don’t offer free service,   charges  from $1 to 5 to a month, and of course, you can also get a prepay plan, if you are a heavy phone user.   Because of abusive practice, you are now required to present proof of your income or of your enrollment with a federal assistance agency.

    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
