Assurance Wireless service available in New Mexico now
Assurance Wireless has announced today that its service has become available in yet another state, 36th in the row, New Mexico. Only a month ago, their contract-free wireless service, created specially for low-income families, has been introduced in Idaho in addition to other 34 states listed at Assurance’s website.
Assurance Wireless is managed by Virgin Mobile USA and Sprint and is supported by the Lifeline Assistance program. The qualifying residents, who provide proof of income or already participating in programs as Food Stamps or Medicaid, are entitled to a free cell phone, free 250 voice minutes and 250 free text messages per month. In addition, they have a call waiting, caller ID and access to 911 for free and they can keep their current number, home or cell phone. Also, they have access to a voice mail feature but users will be charged for using it after free minutes are gone.
When customers are out of free minutes, they can choose from other options available at Assurance Wireless. For $5 per month, users can double their minutes and texts, having a total of 500. To add 750 minutes and 750 texts to already available 250 of both, customers will have to pay $20 per month and get 1000 minutes and 1000 texts in total. However, if they would like to have unlimited talk, text and web, they will have to pay $30 per month. In addition to these plans, Assurance also offers add-on minutes, messages, email and international calling.
Assurance Wireless limits their service to only one account per household.
