Assurance Wireless service launched in Nevada
Assurance Wireless announced today that Nevada is added to its list of markets where it provides free service to qualifying low-income families. Assurance offers free 250 voice minutes, free 250 texts per month and a free handset to those who qualify. Usually, qualifying customers are those who are already included in other public assistance programs.
Assurance Wireless limits service to one line per household and customers can keep their existing home or cell phone number. In addition to free service and a phone, customers are entitled to call waiting, caller ID and access to 911.
Those who need more voice minutes and texts can choose from few options. For $5 per month, users can double their service while for $20, they will have 1000 minutes and 1000 texts. The $30 plan offers unlimited service that includes talk, text and data. Assurance Wireless also offers add-ons for voice minutes, text, email and international calling.
Nevada is the 41st state where Assurance Wireless offers its service. Virgin Mobile USA, Sprint’s prepaid brand, runs Assurance while the federal Universal Service Fund supports it.
