Red for lack of / misleading information - although doing a little research it seems like my parents could take advantage of this program since they are on medicaid.

Safelink is the better choice of the free (Obamaphone) LIFELINE service providers. Safelink is a Tracfone division, utilizing T-Mobile, AT&T or Verizon as service providers. As with everything these days the different Lifeline provider`s service are a bit complicated, with rules in a constant state of flux..

One advantage of being a Tracfone subset is that help is available in different Forums:

  obamaphone is FAKE NEWS from dems. this free phone program has been existed under Bush for a long time. but, of course, FAKE NEWS dems didnt give any credit. obama just renewed it and then they spread their FAKE NEWS.
 

This program came into existence during the last few months of the Bush administration. The basic phone is paid for by Tracfone. The lifeline phone service is paid for by other phone users. You can only have 1 lifeline service... either a landline or a cell phone.

In the first years, there was human customer service.  Now, there is an AI interface that insists upon doing everything.

Last year my Safelink phone stopped working except to receive robo calls announcing that the phone needed to be updated, press "1" to accept upgrade.  This was the last time I spoke with a Safelink human.  I said the only thing I required with any new phone is that it have buttons.  They said a phone most similar to my existing phone would be sent.  But a glass smartphone was received and was given away.

You should have been able to buy a Tracfone with buttons and swapped it for the smartphone.
