Hi. I know since 2005, when President G.W. Bush was in office, free mobile phones have been offered and issued by the government. I don't know too much about free government mobile phones. The term mobile phone is broadly used to describe a phone that is not connected by any wires. It also covers satellite phones, Wi-Fi phones and cell phones and smartphones.
I saw an ad for TruConnect smartphones being advertised when I was playing some mobile app games:
TruConnect smartphones are free government smartphones. At first glance they look and seem like quality smartphones. If these phones really are quality phones I think I would like to send away for one. I wouldn't have to pay a monthly phone bill; I can save the $80/month I usually give to Boost Mobile each month for my Android smartphone.
I need to talk to my cousin and my mother's friend who has me set up on a family plan with Boost Mobile about this.
Does anyone here know anything about TruConnect smartphones? Are they worth getting?
I know free government mobile phones have been commonly referred to as "Obamaphones". One person I know told me you don't want to get a free government mobile phone. She was telling me about "Obamaphones".
Please help. Thank you.
