For a lot of the elders, it’s becoming harder even to lift their hands to the phone, causing arthritis and more.
For those senior citizens, there’s a Jitterbug solution that lets you call via an operator. (How cool is that?)
We think this would actually work for blind people too.
Think of as backtracking our phone technology to the first days when operators switched lines manually.
What a great concept back from the history of phones.
With its big easy-to-read 12 numbers, (or the even simpler 3-button model), it comes pre-programmed and ready to use right out of the box. Push “YES” to call from your personal phone list and you’ll hear a familiar dial tone, which a separate Volume Up/Down button on the cover. An operator is always standing by to help, and 911 emergency calls are always free.
Granny likes the easy of use, the soft ear cushion, and the friendly operators. And something I didn’t notice – she likes that the instructions are written in big letters. Smart. Service plans start as low as $10 a month, and there’s no contract required $147 for a handset. GreatCall has made deals with CDMA carriers across the country and numerous regional service providers, so no matter where you live, they can provide great coverage for Jitterbug customers nationwide.
