Cell Phones for Seniors Comparison - Let's compare the GreatCall, Just5 and SnapFon
Seniors aren’t too keen on the features of their mobile phones. What they prefer are simple cell phones with simple features.
Greatcall offers its more affordable phone, the Jitterbug Plus. It was originally priced at $119 but is now selling at $99.00. The Jitterbug Plus is a clamshell style phone with the simplest features. It has a speaking keypad, large keys, loud volume and sounds, bright color screen, camera and simple menu.
The Jitterbug Plus looks stylish and it’s a good phone to have. However, the main downside is that you have to pay for an activation fee to use the 5Star Urgent Response feature. This is GreatCall’s SOS emergency support system.
Snapfone offers a cheaper phone and plan compared to GreatCall. It offers the ezTWO cell phone featuring a speaking keypad, enhanced sounds, speed dial keys, simple menu, 4 alarm modes, keypad lock slide switch, LED flashlight, low battery warning system and hearing aid compatibility. There’s also the SOS Emergency Alert feature.
The ezTWO is priced at $29.99 only but you have to get it with a plan. The minimum monthly plan is $14.95 and aside from that, you have to pay a one-time activation fee that costs $35.
The latest and most affordable offering from Just5 is the J509. Originally priced at $119.99, you can get it for $67.99 now. That’s more than $50 off already. The J509 is a straightforward cellphone for seniors. It features big buttons, amplified sound, long-lasting battery, dual line backlight monochrome orange display, 2-way navigation pad, speakerphone, speed dial, speaking keypad, Personal Emergency Response system and flashlight.
Not only is the J509 a very affordable phone, customers are not bound to any contract. There are no activation fees, cancellation fees and roaming fees involved. You can buy the phone without getting the Just5 phone plan (which are very affordable too.) In addition, you get a free RedPocket mobile SIM card worth $9.99 for every purchase of a Just5 cell phone.
