Senior citizens are fully capable of using regular prepaid cellphones. There is no need to get special cell phones because one ages. However, nature plays a few pretty interesting tricks as we age and vision seems to be the butt of the aging joke. A senior’s vision isn’t quite as sharp as it used to be. As a result, larger is better than smaller (in cell phone talk, that’s almost unheard of) and seniors would prefer special cell phones to make wireless conversations much easier.
Jitterbug Cell Phones for Seniors to the Rescue
Unlike most cell phones, Jitterbug offers cell phones with larger buttons and large display numbers. Yes, that means that if the phone rings while you’re in the grocery store and you don’t happen to have your reading glasses on, there’s a much better chance of being able to see who is calling because the number display is large.
Jitterbug Phones – Easy to See and Easy to Use
No longer do you have to be a computer programmer to access the phone’s menu options. Jitterbug’s simple “Yes” and “No” keys will unlock the phone’s treasures. Don’t you hate having to decipher which menu option to use to reach a cell phone’s feature? No more guesswork with the Jitterbug phone.
Prepaid Rate Plan
As of this writing, Jitterbug’s typical prepaid plan price structure charges a per minute rate anywhere from .05 to .35 depending on the plan and roaming is free. As with most prepaid cell phones, with the Jitterbug plan minutes can expire either in 60 days or 12 months. It all depends on the amount of minutes purchased.
