Woman explains how she got a free iPhone from the government and films how she unwraps it

A viral video is circulating of a young woman telling people how they can get a free iPhone from the government if they fall below a certain household income.

While this immediately sounds like a scam or some kind of joke, AnnaBelle Calypso – the woman sharing this information – posted a video of her unwrapping the one she received in the mail.

She claims that the government sent her a free iPhone because she was on welfare.

“If you’re on benefits — food stamps, medicare — stay tuned,” she said in a video posted to TikTok. “In this box there should be, I don’t believe it, a free iPhone I got from AirTalk Wireless.”

She holds a small box just big enough for a phone and an accessory as she explains how she got hold of a government benefit in the form of a smartphone.

“My grandma said, ‘Don’t you have one of those government phones? Don’t you get food stamps?'” she explained. “I’m like, ‘Yeah, I used to have one and it sucked, it’s not worth it.’ “
