Has anyone checked into or tried usafreephone.com?
I got a flier in a local newspaper about usafreephone.com but their website is rather void of information. They had online chat and when I asked what company they were I didn't get an answer. Has anyone tried them, are they legit? They offer pretty good discounts but one wonders if this is too good to be true.

it appears that it is a government subsidized lifeline service.. the first month is free.. then every additional month is $19.99 plus taxes and fees... i can not see anywhere weather it is a POTS service or a VoIP service.. but at that price point i am going to assume that it is normal POTS service - which would mean that they are a CLEC and need to be registered/licensed to do business with each state's public service commission or public utility commission
it does not seem like too much of a deal to me... i have seen lifeline services for far much cheaper than that... for example this company offers lifeline service for $1 per month http://www.lifelinenewyork.com/
then if you qualify for lifeline service, you may want to consider a free cell phone with free minutes per month...
