JitterBug : Not What You Think it is


If Grandpa isn't texting, Face Book-ing, or running up the data plan, then chances are he doesn't want a new-fangled phone with lots of buzzers and bells. Not to mention that the keyboard may be too small for him to see.

So buy Pops the re-designed Jitterbug Plus the original easy-to-use cell phone, with only the features he'll need in an easy-to-use package.

It doesn't get more intuitive than the “YES” and “NO” buttons, a backlit keypad and big, legible numbers. Also, the improved speaker helps eliminate all the "WHAT? I CAN'T HEAR YOU" proclamations.

And since chances are they might forget to charge it, the Jitterbug Plus comes with one of the longest lasting batteries on the market – up to 25 days of standby time – so they won't discover they've run out of power the next time they go to use it.

Since older folks have said that the one feature they wish they had was photo sharing, The Jitterbug designers came up with a built-in camera and simple app that doesn't need computer cords or complicated uploading.

Along with the 24/7 assistance, the 5Star Urgent Response transforms their JitterBug it into their own personal safety device.

It comes in snappy red or fashionable silver for $99. We'll all be trading in our smart phones for one of these someday, so no making fun!
