Lifeline Service & Plans
Is there a way to make free international or domestic calls without using my minutes?
Absolutely! No matter what plan you’re on, Q Link Wireless now provides high-quality smartphones that allow you to download free apps like Skype, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Viber, making it easy for you to make voice or video calls with family and friends anywhere!
Simply connect your phone to Wi-Fi, make sure your family & friends have the same app on their phone, tablet, or computer, and follow these easy steps!
- Make sure you’ve saved your friends’ and family’s phone numbers to the contacts list on your phone.
- Download the Skype, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, or Viber to your phone.
PRO TIP: Some of these apps may come pre-installed on your phone already!
- Once downloaded, open the app to set it up. You may have to sign up for an account if you don’t already have one. If you see a pop-up asking for access to your contacts list, tap “Agree”.
- Once you’ve finished setting up the app, your contact list will appear within it, and you can send messages or make free voice or video calls to any contacts who also have the app!
For information on how to connect your phone to an available Wi-Fi signal, check your phone’s user manual here.
