StandUp Wireless Plans
Unlike most providers under the Lifeline Program, the company offers a standard plan which includes 100 free talk minutes per month. While this is less than most companies, StandUp Wireless compensates by also giving 100 free SMS messages per month.

- StandUp 500 – For $14.95 a month, the company offers 500 anytime talk minutes and 500 text messages.
- StandUp 1000 – For $29.95 a month, the company offers 1000 anytime talk minutes and 100 text messages.
