Lifeline, the EBB program, the ACP, and Red Pocket Mobile

Red Pocket Mobile does not participate in the Lifeline program at this time. However, it does participate in the ACP program; new ACP applications will no longer be accepted after February 7th, 2024.

For more information on the ACP wind-down, please visit the Federal Communications Commission's website at fcc.gov/acp.

What’s the difference between EBB, ACP, and Lifeline? 

Lifeline is another program that helps qualified applicants with internet and phone service by subsidizing the cost of your plan. Lifeline-approved applicants, like EBB or ACP-approved applicants, must use a service provider who works with the Lifeline program to acquire service.

At this time, Red Pocket Mobile does not provide service for Lifeline-approved applicants, but this may change.

Please Note: This program no longer applies. Information here is for reference purposes only. The EBB program has been replaced with the ACP program. Click here to learn more about the ACP program and how to apply. 

If I’m enrolled in the Lifeline Program, can I receive free service through Lifeline with Red Pocket now that the EBB Program ends?

Unfortunately, Red Pocket Mobile currently does not support the Lifeline Program. Your Lifeline benefits must be used with a Lifeline service provider.

If you decide to keep your account with Red Pocket Mobile, the EBB program has ended, and you do not qualify for the ACP program, your plan will be charged at our standard monthly rates.
