A friend has had nothing but trouble with the free phone & they have blown her off....phone that works now! You just have to give AW a call and request an upgrade. If they refuse, your other option is to activate service with another Lifeline provider. a GSM or locked phone), or that NO Hydro Reach phones can be activated on AW at all? I got it and have had more issues with it than the cheapy cheap small reg phone they sent me in the beginning. Assurance Wireless phones are crap and I don'tcare if people say we complain about the phones.
Don't know if she would want a smartphone, so a list of any that are acceptable will be appreciated! They'll provide you with a new phone, and port your number over for you. I have the ZTE Quest because I wanted an upgrade and AW said this was the best. Anyways, AW clearly states that they Hydro Reach is compatible. Just because we get this service for free doesn't mean we deserve crap! Actually, I like the one I have, but dropped it too many times! That certainly sounds extremely frustrating to say the least!
Regarding the Unimax phone; I'm sorry, but I don't really understand what you're asking. It even screws up the "Launcher" screen (Home screen) when leaving saying the camera/text/etc area to go to the home screen it says there is a problem with the launcher. With my old pay Lo, I was on a 500 minute, unlimited text plan.
Are you asking whether is a good price for the phone? Hello, I've been with Assurance Wireless for about 2 months now. That is what these free plastic useless cheap phones are. And not a person in their right mind wanted to buy them. I am now on a 350 minute, unlimited text, and 500 MB data plan.
I just signed a lease for a year at 00 a month because I THOUGHT I had a job to go back to.
I am now totally destitute trying to get some help from the State (Massachusetts) and the Government.
I just lost my job of 22 years ON MY BIRTHDAY because I didn't return to work fast enough.
I am a senior citizen and have a lot of health issues and no one is going to hire me.
I had 2 major surgeries in the space of 4 months and I was crippled for the year prior to that.With all the crap Assurance gives almost everyone, who can we complain to about them! It really is annoying how inconsistent they are with respect to what phones are compatible.After 3 crap phones, I bought my own which was compatible. Kyocera Contact.... on clearance at the time from Kmart..- phone. And since they discontinued pay Lo, it has become even more ambiguous. We're talking about a phone that is already yesterday's trash.This transfer process will cancel your old service automatically. In fact, I have in the past.....so, many ungrateful people on here...probably committing fraud & really don't qualify for a free phone. Keep complaining people & this program will be taken away from all of us & many of us d O need it.
I have a list of providers; there's a link below, or you can use the menu above and find it under the FREE Service section. They (Assurance Wireless) sent me 2 phones within 6 or 7 months. After about 1 year I called and bought a flip phone for .95, and it is not any better. I GOT A FRAUD ALERT ON MY VERY LIMITED CREDIT CARD!!! I am retired & living on 0 a month after I pay for my high dollar health insurance.,,,, Medicare & a supplement that goes up every year....going to have to drop it & I have many, many health probs, too! I have a small savings to pay for homeowners & car insurance & taxes, so, I can't get any help except for my heating bill, which is NOT paid for by our wonderful govt. I had to get a different phone due to the freebie not working....tried 3 of them, BUT..... I've dropped it several times, so, might have to get another one day! I'm interested to buy a compatible phone for the assurance wireless plan to replace my unreliable paylo dumb phone, but the smart phones they recommend seem to be outdated or out of production. Unfortunately, this isn't unusual across all industries.
All you people out there whining about the fact that you can't get some kind of upgraded, new phone should STFU and be happy that you live in a country that can actually provide you with a phone.
