I had a job and a nice life a few years back. But suddenly everything changed when the business closed due to some regulatory reasons.
Suddenly, I saw the harsh reality of leading a life with insufficient cash in hand. With all other necessary needs, I needed a phone and data connection but couldn’t afford it.
That’s when my friend introduced me to the lifeline program and came to know about Qlink. Then I asked my friend what kind of phones does Qlink wireless has?
To answer that, he showed me the online store of Qlink and saw many phones within my budget as well as affordable plans.
What kind of phones does Qlink wireless have supported on their network?
Qlink wireless uses CDMA technology. So, any phone that’s unlocked and is compatible with the CDMA network can be used with a Qlink SIM card. Either you can buy a new phone from Qlink or some other marketplace or you can switch to Qlink with your current phone.
However, your current phone will be eligible for this network if you previously used Sprint, Verizon, or a related carrier’s phone service.
So, we’ve selected some phones with various price ranges so that you can choose according to your budget and enjoy the cheapest data plan in the US.
