Any experience with GreatCall - Jitterbug Cell Phones?
Apologies if this is too far off topic for the site, but curious if anyone has had any experience with these phones? GreatCall-Jitterbug Plus
Seen them advertised towards seniors for some time, and looking for a new phone for my parents. The Jitterbug Plus looks like a decent phone, seems to get decent reviews. GreatCall provides service on the Verizon network which is pretty strong in the area.
Dad has been on Sprint for years (as have I), but like most providers, the offering of simple feature phones is minimal at best. The flip phone he got the last time he "upgraded" was an epic fail, and I've had him on an old refurb Samsung A900 for the last year or so riding out his contract which is now over. The phone was perfect for his needs...was probably the last high-end flip phone Sprint offered...but is starting to act up. Sprint offers one basic flip phone, but it appears to be the same cheap warmed-over Samsung they always offer (like the pitiful one he had). My parents are intelligent folks...Dad can even do pretty well with a computer surfing the web...but hand them something with a touch screen and its like kryptonite to Superman.
