    Improves quality of life? A $10 bill credit is hardly a quality of life improvement.

    haha, some markets are doing $15. . . it's actually state based. $10 a month will buy me two loaves of bread, and 1 bottle of each peanut butter & jelly. i'm glad though that grandma on SSI will now only be paying $25/mo for her service

    $13 in Calif. They should only allow lifeline on the $35 plan, if you can afford an android with the $55 plan you do not need lifeline.

    That's what I don't understand.... If they can afford the $55 or $65 plan, then they should not need the credit!! And to be honest, I think they should have a SPECIAL plan for Lifeline customers.

    A Local and Long Distance only plan. No text, pix, web, or anything else.... Simply talk....

    Couldnt agree more on both points.

    The reason that isnt that case though is so those customers don't FEEL bad because they are low income. We wouldnt want anyone to be hurt because they can only afford a super cheap plan. Everyone should have whatever they want regardless of how much it costs. If they can't pay for it then someone else should pay higher taxes so the government can give those folks android service. After all they deserve it, just like the people who can pay their bill.

    Yeah...this is another example of corporate greed exploiting a government program that's supposed to benefit people who actually need it.
