Programs that pay for or provide cellular phones, i.e., electronic devices that are used for mobile telecommunications (mobile telephone, text messaging or data transmission) over a cellular network of specialized base stations known as cell sites. Also included are programs that furnish smartphones, i.e., mobile phones with advanced capabilities such as Wi-Fi and e-book reader features that function more like miniature computers with phone capabilities. Some programs limit their cell phone provision service to special targeted populations such as victims of domestic abuse or others in vulnerable situations who are authorized to use the phones in emergency situations only.
