Life Wireless Gives Tornado Victims Free Service
Company upgrades Joplin, MO Customers to the Unlimited Plan
Covington, Georgia — Life Wireless™, a cellular provider offering, in conjunction with Telrite Corporation, free government-supported service to income eligible customers, announces the upgrade of the company's Joplin, Missouri customers to its Unlimited talk & text plan. The company's decision is based on the destructive tornadoes the area faced in late May.
"The recent tornadoes in the Joplin area have caused terrible devastation -- both physically and emotionally. Our thoughts and prayers are with the residents of this area and their loved ones," said Brian Lisle, President of Telrite Corporation. "Perhaps now, more than ever, it is important that families be able to connect and communicate with one another, without concern about their available minutes or a phone bill.If Life Wireless can ease the burden of these individuals in even the slightest way, it is our duty to do it."
Life Wireless sent each customer in the Joplin area an SMS text message to alert them of the complimentary plan upgrade, effective May 26 through June 30. For more information on Life Wireless, visit the company's Web site — www.lifewireless.com.
