If however you are disabled you can get a house phone from Verizon that only costs like 20.00 a month.
It is NOT full service though no voice mail or caller id or any of that stuff.
You contact them they give you a application you send copies of a doctor form I believe it was and they offer a low cost phone
It is called Lifeline and more info is here
Hope this helps.
