I used to be more angry about this a couple of months ago until I researched it further. They get 10 minutes a month and then have to pay for additional minute blocks. I think this is a clever way to get more cell phone customers. The phones suck also - you could buy one for less than $20 bucks and start adding Tracphone minutes yourself.

The amount of minutes vary state to state. In Georgia, where I live, the free cell phone recipients get 68 minutes a month.

FYI - my mother purchased a prepaid cell phone because she could not afford a monthly plan. So why should she have to scrimp and sacrifice so that some government leech gets a phone and more free minutes than my widowed mother can afford?

I am SICK AND TIRED and FED UP with giving all these goodies to the “poor.” I don’t have a problem with helping the needy but cell phones? iPod touches in Minnesota? And who knows what that I’m not even aware of in other places?
