Beware offers of free cell phone use for seniors

I read with interest the full page ad in Wednesday, July 24, paper about seniors getting easy to use cell phones for “free.” There is nothing free in this ad. All cell phone companies are required to allow all emergency calls to 911 no matter what plan you have. The $97 start up fee is a tip-off also.
All senior citizens and people with disabilities are eligible for free phones and 250 minutes of service per month - with no start-up fee. The only requirement is you must be on the food stamp program SNAP or any other number of government programs.
Two companies I know of is Safelink and Assurance. All one has to do is call 211 and ask about these wonderful programs.
