Assurance Wireless Phones
An assurance wireless phone is a service that is only for personal use, you are not allowed to use the phone in any way that interferes with another wireless service. It has been determined that there is good quality of service even if you have made a high number of calls or messages. Assurance wireless phones can have their account terminated if they are any violation of rights, or fraudulent acts, illegal acts that cause termination of the contract.
You cannot change the hardware or the software of your phone however; your service provider can change the software or programs without notifying you. This should not cause you to loss any personal information or data that has been stored in your phone but if there has been any loss than the company will not be held reliable for it
You have to be eligible for having an assurance phone however; some believe that this is a scam. Most feel that those who are on welfare and dependent on government funding will be the most eligible people that can receive an assurance phone. It seems unfair where a person battling between more than one job to earn money to pay off their bills is seem less likely to receive such a government benefit. That does seem highly unfair and those who do seem to fit in the category for those who can receive an assurance phone are seem to be those who have be convicted of crimes more than once. Is this not a way to promote crime? Giving those the benefits that can be misused. Yet another controversy, many believe that since it is a government-operated phone, people think that those criminal that have this phone have it because the police can tap into and eavesdrop on to conversations of the criminals.
