COVINGTON, Ga., Nov. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Wireless today began offering subsidized cellphone service to eligible low-income residents in Colorado.

Life Wireless provides phone service through the federal Lifeline program, which was created by Congress in 1985 to ensure that all Americans have access to quality telephone service and the security and opportunities that it affords.

Life Wireless phone service helps people stay connected to the world around them. Our customers are able to take care of their medical needs, check in on family members, call 911 and provide a callback number to potential employers.

"A cellphone is no longer a luxury item. It's necessary to fully participate and compete in today's world," said Brian Lisle, president of Telrite Corporation. "We're excited to bring Life Wireless service to eligible Colorado residents."

To be eligible, customers must participate in a federal assistance program such as Medicaid or food stamps or earn up to 135 percent of the federal poverty level. Eligible customers receive a basic mobile handset with voicemail, text messaging, call waiting, and other features. Calling plans offer up to 250 minutes a month.

Life Wireless has developed industry-leading practices designed to preserve the integrity of the Lifeline program. Life Wireless performs multiple checks on each potential customer to verify program eligibility, and its field representatives receive extensive training and oversight to ensure that company policies and program requirements are upheld.

"No Lifeline provider has done more than Life Wireless to eliminate waste, fraud and abuse from this essential program," said Lisle.
