    My mom, my dad, and grandmother all received one. You have to be disabled or have issues with your vision or need a hearing aid, then you will qualify. And yes i was very exited to receive 3 tablets.

    I really need a tablet because I’m always having to go to the library to get online and I don’t always have a way to get there so this would really help me out

    I hope you’ve learned your lesson about eye-catching and possibly misleading headlines. My first reaction was: How did SS know I got a new tablet? Is Verizon giving out information to the government? When I read your post, I realized it was a blanket statement to catch the attention of new tablet owners – but causing confusion for the many in our technology-challenged generation who don’t own – and may not be able to afford – a tablet!
