In a nutshell, Red Pocket offers a free plan to customers that qualify. If you qualify for the free plan, you will get unlimited minutes, and texts. In addition, you will receive mobile data to access the internet.

Continue reading this post to learn all you need to know about the Red Pocket free plan. Also, you will learn who qualifies and how to apply for the free plan if you qualify.

How Does Red Pocket Free Plan Work?

As mentioned, Red Pocket has a free plan for customers that qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). In other words, this plan is not available to all Red Pocket customers.

Also, Red Pocket does not automatically give you this plan even if you qualify. You have to apply for and get approval to enjoy the free plan.

Once the network approves you for the plan, you get access to free phone services each month. That includes minutes, texts, and even mobile data.

The free plan is not available to all customers, but eligible customers. According to the information on the Red Pocket site, to qualify for the free plan, you have to qualify for or receive either of these government assistance programs:

Understand The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

One of the main criteria to qualify for the free plan is to be a recipient of the ACP program. Let’s explain the program to those that are yet to understand how the program works and who qualifies.
