What Should Consumers Understand About ACP Free Phones and Service?

Are you looking for information about ACP free phones? On December 31, 2021, the Affordable Connectivity Program entered circulation. The Federal Communications Commission oversees the ACP and funds it accordingly. The ACP was designed to replace the Emergency Broadband Benefit program. If you were part of the EBB program, you have until March 1, 2022, to switch to the new program. ACP services depend upon availability, provider participation, and FCC approval.

Phone Availability

When you qualify for the program, you receive a $100 coupon to use on the phone of your choice. To buy the phone outright with the coupon, it must be worth less than $100, or it will only be a discount. Additionally, there are no guarantees that your phone will be available. A co-pay will be required at the point of purchase, ranging from $10 to $50.

Here are a few phone models you can get using this discount:

  • Motorola Z4
  • Google Pixel 3 XL
  • Google Pixel 3A
  • Samsung Galaxy A20
  • LG K10
  • Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Motorola G7
  • LG Style 6

Depending on your location and income criteria, you may qualify for a free phone and service. The program includes 4G data and wi-fi at no cost.

Once you are part of the program, you must use your cell phone every month, or you will be ejected. As long as you can send a message, you will remain an active participant. You must use the phone at least once every 30-day window, or they will disenroll you.
