    <DIV dir="ltr" align="left"><SPAN class="954503918-02052007">Is this a land line that is $235? That really seems high.
    <DIV dir="ltr" align="left"><SPAN class="954503918-02052007">If it is a cell, there prob is not any assistance for it. Work with them on payment options. They may turn it off until it is paid up - if it is not a land line.

    Unless there is a medical need to have the phone line, there really are

    not any programs to help you pay a phone bill.



    In the mean time, cut back any extras on the phone- long distance, call

    waiting, caller id, etc. They're extras that are not needed for a short

    time.



    If you have a cell phone on top of a land line, cut one loose. You

    don't need both for a short time until the bills are paid.



    Prioritize the bills you have, and pay the ones that are absolutely

    neccessary for now. If you can, maybe send in a partial payment, as

    long as there isn't a shut off notice on some stuff. It won't help in

    the long run, but it will help keep things afloat for now.



    As long as there isn't a shut off, though, you should be fine sending

    in a partial to things like gas, electric, phone, and even credit

    cards. Not all things will allow for partial payments, though, usually

    rent, mortgages, and loans.

    I live in SC & was told "NO", it's considered a luxury. Could just be a county rule or state not sure. Have you tried to discuss it with your current phone company? Lots of times they will work with you a little.

    I asked a friend who works for the elect/gas assistance program and she said that a telephone is considered a luxury and there is no assistance available unless you have a handicapped child and the telephone is then considered a necessity. She suggested youcontact your telephone carrier and talk to them about either re-working your phone extras or a payment plan.

    Perhaps I'm repeating what someone else already suggested, but have

    you looked into Universal Life Line? You will get your phone bill

    down to around $5/month if your income is below a certain level. I

    took advantage of this when I was a grad student and when I was

    employed and not making much money.



    Do a google search on "universal life line." It's a federal program

    and your phone company MUST allow you to do it. They have no right

    not to sign you up for it if you ask. There is no legal check, it is

    on an honesty policy. They will send you out a card in the mail

    which you sign and return.

    If you or anybody in your household receives any type of government assistance or social security you can ask the phone company to send you an application for Lifeline/Link up. It is a program that reduces the ammount of the local phone service. You have to send in proof but it is pretty easy to get approved. To pay the bill itself, you should be able to work out monthly payments with the phone company.
