JITTERBUG PHONE FOR SENIORS

         

    


I feel I need a smart phone, as at this time I only have a cell phone.  I am a disabled senior citizen and I have fallen several times. 

The last time I fell, was last May.  I fell on my patio, when I lost my balance while working in my little herb garden.  Fortunately, I had just watered, and as I was out there for two hours in the heat, it was fortunate that I fell into the herb garden and did not get overheated.  Phoenix is very hot in May.

This incident was about the 5th time I have fallen  I think I need a cell phone with some safety features included.  AND I MUST REMEMBER TO KEEP THE PHONE WITH ME AT ALL TIMES!

These are the reasons I am researching Jitterbug Smart Phones or Seniors.  I now have an account with Verizon, and Jitterbug will apparently let me keep the same phone number.

The following features should be considered when researching a smart phone:

The retail price for this Jitterbug Phone for Seniors is:  $74.99, shipping not included

 CONCLUSION

I feel that the features on this phone would be advantageous to  me. because of my handicap and because of my history of falls.  I feel the best Jitterbug phone or Seniors for me would be the Smart Phone 2.  

I will be doing more research into Smart Phones for Seniors before making my choice

After doing more research, I am also considering the:

GREAT CALL EASY TO USE SMARTPHONE FOR SENIORS

LARGE TOUCH SCREEN

SIMPLE MENU

CUSTOMER SERVICE AND SUPPORT

EASY TO USE FEATURES

$85.00  (I think this may be the phone for me!!)

I wonder if the  name “Jitterbug” contributes to my interest in this phone.  Of course jitterbugging was done with a partner, and we followed his lead.  I am enjoying my retirement years, but I miss the old days when life was so much more simple.  If this is the case, why do I need a smart  phone at all, and why do I need so many features?  I will ponder these questions before investing in a new phone.

Thank you for reading my post.
