You are going to find people who abuse the system whereever you go, but my mother who is 85 uses the pone so if she falls, her ar breaks down or gets lost she can get home. Homeless people trying to gt their life on track can use it for job notifications. It saddens me that Echols is so out of touch with a significant portion of Oklahomans that he says he doesn't understand the eason for the program.

I know numerous people that have a minimum of 2 or 3 of these free phones and it sickens me!! These people are using the phones for selling drugs and committing crimes. These companies need to do more extensive research before just giving these low lifes phones. This program was intended to help HONEST people getting assistance and this program needs overhauled ASAP!!
