My Jitterbug Plus has everything I wanted in a phone and more. At 86, with a computer at home, I have no need for cyberspace on the road. The camera on it is great - much better than I'd expected, and so easy to operate. I can drape the phone from my neck as it has a place to insert a cord, which is reassuring if I'm alone and ever need to call for help. At a very affordable price it has an optional 24/7 GPS service where I can be located and aided by certified medical personnel no matter how many miles away from home base I am. Reception on it is fantastic. Additionally, I can readily see the calls I've missed - how many minutes I've used up to a certain time, etc. Customer service is wonderful too. My monthly plan is so much less than I was paying before - I opted for 200 minutes at $19.99/mo - and any unused minutes carry over for an additional 30 days. No contract if I ever become disenchanted (which AINT gonna happen, I'm sure.) What more can I say... I love it!!!

Pluses: the phone itself is easy to handle, easy to read, easy to understand. It's to be used by a man who has slightly compromised vision and limited hand dexterity, and he has no problems with the Jitterbug. The Great Call service plan that comes with it has operators who answer in person, are knowledgeable and helpful. I have no complaints there, but on the minus side I marked down the value because we're required to carry Great Call's service which is too expensive. I couldn't transfer service from another carrier which was less pricey so I feel we're overpaying for the limited number of calls we make and receive. With taxes and fees the $14.99 monthly plan becomes nearly $20! Voice Mail isn't included so we do without rather than spending another monthly fee. Would I buy the Jitterbug again? Yes, if there were no other choices. The phone itself and customer service are excellent but service plan cost is out of line.

This is a great phone phone for anyone that needs reliable phone service. The screen is easy enough to read. Menus are simple and straight forward. The phone seems durable. There are some extra bells and whistles that can be added through Great Call after activating. Some are free, some have a slight up charge. The service, so far, has been excellent with Great Call. They followed through with the number transfer from Virgin Mobile and didn't forget about the transfer. Virgin mobile had to release my old number and it became time consuming releasing it. Wait time when contacting customer service has always been short and the phone utilizes the Verizon network so it makes and receives calls reliably. Customer service operators very polite and helpful. I should be a customer of Great Call for a long time if the phone and service maintain this level of quality. No complaints, no regrets.

We bought this phone for my mother-in-law who is 95 and lives in an assisted living facility. She wanted some contact with the outside world without having to pay for an expensive landline. The Jitterbug Plus amplifies the other person's voice so it's much easier for someone with a hearing problem to hear the conversation. We were amazed at how clear the voice was. She can now call her other two siblings who live in another state. The one problem with this phone is that the ringer isn't quite loud enough for her due to her hearing problem. We wish there was one additional choice for a ringer that would be louder for someone like her.

Can you buy just another 50 or 100 minutes for one single month or would you have to change your plan and then be locked into it from then on?
