A cell phone without all the newest bells and whistles?

Perfect for elderly parents or grandparents, or for anyone who is technically challenged... it's Jitterbug. A new MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) that uses the Sprint system and features easy-to-use phones with operator-assisted calling and speed dial set-up.

Jitterbug currently features two phones made by Samsung. Both have large, easy-to-read displays, loud and clear sound, and feature large, easy to dial buttons with clear markings (no confusing icons). They also 'play' a familiar dial tone when the phone is opened to simulate a landline. One phone has a standard keypad, the other has three one-touch dial keys.

Perfect peace of mind without 37 ringer choices and streaming TV.
