Obama phone?

My oldest recently started baby sitting but the people don't have a home phone so if something happens she can't call anyone. I can't afford to buy her a cell so I was thinking of getting one of the free ones for her to use but have no idea where to get one. Help?

Well first, it's a Reagan phone since he started the program.

Second, it varies from state to state and you must qualify financially.

The only one I know of is safelink, you can apply online.

Reagan started it because people couldn't afford to have a phone just in case they needed to call 911.

A TrakFone is really cheap. Three months for $19.95.
Ask about it at Best Buy or any phone store.

Oh. I didn't know that. Every one just calls it an Obama Phone.

Thank you for the info.

 Way to show your daughter how to abuse the system. She's earning money now, let her buy her own phone!

Don't think a 12 yr old that earns $10 twice a month is capable of buying a phone but thanks.

Then change your title, or edit your post. Because you might get several other similar responses telling you it's not an "Obama phone"
