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:
Jitterbug Smart Phone 2
The Jittterbug Smart Phame
The Jitterbug Smart Phone 2 has a simple menu
13 MP Camera
Keep your phone number
Urgent Response Device, Emergency Buutton
Senior Medical Alert
Plans as low as $17.40/month
Unlimited Data Plan and unlimited Text $40/month
JITTERBUG FLIP PHONE
This phone is also a Smart Phone or seniors
2.0 megapixel Camera
There are 3 plans:
Basic for $19.99 per month 5 Star Service
Preferred for $24,99 per month 5 Star Service, Urgent Care,
Ultimate for $34.99 per month 5 Star Service, Handset Replacement, Phone Operator
The retail price for this Jitterbug Phone for Seniors is: $74.99, shipping not included
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
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.
