Welcome to California Budget Mobile

California Budget Mobile is a LifeLine supported program that provides FREE cell phone
and FREE cell phone service each month for eligible customers.


LifeLine is a government assistance program and potential subscribers must meet certain eligibility requirements. You may qualify based on household income level or if you participate in programs such as Food Stamps (SNAP), Medicaid, Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), National School Lunch Program (NSL), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and more.

Budget Mobile California LifeLine Provides FREE Cell Phone Service


Budget Mobile introduces 250mb of FREE Mobile Data

Have you ever found yourself looking for directions to your next doctors appointment or needing to respond quickly to a job interview question over email, but don’t have a data plan setup up on your phone? Budget Mobile now offers 250mb of FREE Mobile Data to low-income families that qualify for the LifeLine Cell Phone Plan.

The LifeLine Cell Phone Plan by Budget Mobile allows for one qualified person per household to get a free government cell phone that includes free calls, text, and data in California. To qualify for this program, applications may qualify through existing use of government or state financial assistance programs such as food stamps (SNAP), Medicaid, housing assistance, or other programs accepted by state in which the applicant lives.

Free Unlimited Calls & Text Messages

In addition to free mobile data, this LifeLine Cell Phone plan also includes unlimited cell phone calls and unlimited text messages. This means that you don’t have to worry about how many minutes your using when you have a phone interview for a job or need to console a family member or friend about a personal matter or emergency.

Free Government Phones

Through this free government phone program that is also referred to as an Obama Phone, qualified individuals are able to receive a free cell phone with no contract. This means that if you decide to purchase a new cell phone plan, you are not locked into the LifeLine Cell Phone Plan. For people who use or think they may use more than 250mb, they can also purchase additional mobile data at a very low price.
