  3. good luck in getting a new phone for the one that doesn’t work. I have had problem with the phone and called for a replacement and they did all kind of crap saying that the phone works fine and yet i still get disconnected when someone calls me. now i have minutes and can’t use them cause i get disconnected in the middle of a conversation or they can’t hear me and my volume being on number 5…

  4. THIS COULD NOT HAVE COME AT A BETTER TIME. GODS plans seem to always come through for me. Thank you jesus

  5. Sad thing is, people such as myself and my family that has paid into it my whole working life, can’t get more than $4 a month from welfare. I was hurt in an auto accident about a year and a half ago, disabling where I can’t work. Living on my wife’s paycheck as a cashier in a grocery store, my 5 year old is the one suffering because of getting screwed over. Can’t get paid from work comp,social security,auto insurance or welfare!

  6. I have a q link phone and they are good phones I had a safelink and it never worked. I am sorry billy about things for you, but I was the victim of being raped and nearly murdered in WV. I am on welfare. I think that the system really helps people. I am disabled. I am not rich. I use sites like this one to find free stuff and good deals. If you are having these problems go in to a DHHR office and talk to someone. They will do what they can to help you. That is their job. If they can’t help try a church. They try to help too. Just trying to give you some ideas

  7. BILLY,
    May I ask you a question. It’s been
    over a year now since you work right!
    Have you filt out the application for ssdi or supplemental security income.
    My husband was hurt on the job back in 2005 had to stop working , no workman’s comp a little bit of unemployment. Then my husband was 47 and received his ssdi insurance because he started working at the age of 9 yes. so he had enough points to receive early retirement. Why have you not contacted a disability lawyer to take on your case so you can help support your family. That do all the work .Has your doctor filled out a form form from DES stating that you can’t work for 12 months ? DES has these forms.That will get you on G.A. First fill out a ssi application ask for them to give you like a receipt it’s a and verifies that you are applying he take it to the afdc and no more than 15 days you’ll be on GA assistance and food stamps and medical and this should help your family until you receive your funds from disability that get you a disability lawyer those are free all you gotta do is go on the internet type in lawyers that help get you disability and the everything will come up it’s very simple I have helped so many people get on disability me myself I’ve been on it for 26 years I’ve been disabled I wish you luck and your family well being. And as for the free phones go on the site and as for government free phones and they will tell you where they have Representatives out on the field with little tense or in stores signing you up and they have the phones right there with them I received mine at the 99 cent store the other day and it was from assurance and I get 500 minutes a month unlimited texting and the web I wish you luck like I said and please don’t give up you gotta keep working for this it took me from 1985 21996 to receive my funds don’t never give up I wish you luck

  8. I’ve filed ss about 2 years ago. Going on my 3rd year unable to work as well as 1 cervical and 3 lumbar surgeries. I fired my old attorney last year and hired a new one. Because my wife and I are married we can’t get approved for more than $2 from the last amount given to us. They said because she makes too much money before taxes. I was denied disability when my daughter was 4 due to I wouldn’t leave her unsupervised while I was having migraines. The government is out to cheat the taxpayers that pay into everything but shame on you when you need it! Basically still being starved and hoping to go back to work sometime next year. I appreciate your advice and imput.

  9. I AGREE WITH YOU !
    A PERSON WORKS HARD ALL THEIR LIFE AND PAYS IN TO THEIR RETIREMENT FUND IN CASE SOME MISFORTUNE HAPPENS LIKE IN YOUR CASE AND THEY HAVE TO FIGHT TO GET WHATS THEIRS. AND NOT TO BE DISRESPECTFUL BUT YOU HAVE PEOPLE THAT DOES NOT BELONG ON IT .
    I’LL BE PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. YOU’LL GET IT SORRY IT’S BEEN TAKEN SO LONG.
    I ALWAYS PUT THIS ONE SAYING AT THE END OF MY LETTERS OR POST.
    NEVER LET GO AND NEVER
    GIVE UP .STAY STRONG AND KEEP YOUR FAITH .
    LINDA
