On the main page of the site it states:
SafeLink Wireless is a government supported program
that provides a free cell phone and airtime each
month for income-eligible customers.
yet in the FAQ it states......
SafeLink phones are not paid for by taxpayers or the federal government. TracFone Wireless pays for the phones and also the cost of promoting its SafeLink program to make sure that eligible consumers know about the program.
????? My gut tells me it finds a way back to the taxpayer somehow.
