Staying connected is easy with my Jitterbug®!
All my friends — and my kids — have new cell phones. They carry them around with them all day, like mini computers, with little tiny keyboards and hundreds of programs which are supposed to make their life easier.
Trouble is…people my age can’t use them. The keyboards are too small, the displays are hard to see, and the phones are so complicated that my friends end up borrowing my Jitterbug when they need to make a call.
I don’t mind. I just got a new phone too…the new Jitterbug Plus. Now I have all the things I loved about my old Jitterbug phone along with some great new features that make it even better!
They made it even better…without making it harder to use.
My new Jitterbug phone still has the bright screen and big buttons that make it easy to use. And it still has a dial tone so I know when I make a call.
I love the new amplified speaker. I can enjoy a conversation without struggling to make out every word. Even my friends that talk so quietly you’d think they’re whispering come through loud and clear.
The new camera is a convenient addition that I didn’t think I’d use at first. It helps me remember things I see that are interesting and I can share them with a touch of a button. Sure beats carrying around a separate camera everywhere like I’m a tourist.
Best of all, the new battery seems like it lasts forever! My friends are constantly looking to plug their phones in to recharge their batteries. I can go for days or even a couple of weeks without plugging it in.
Frequently Asked Questions

What type of battery does the Jitterbug phone use?

What makes the Jitterbug Phone different from other cell phones?
The Jitterbug phone offers a standard keypad with large, backlit buttons that are easier to see. The Jitterbug phone is extremely intuitive. The lower part of the display screen is what we call the “Command Area.” This is where we ask what you want to do. Let’s say you are in your phone list and your first contact is highlighted. In the Command Area you will see the question, “Call?” You simply press the “Yes” key or the “No” key. The same is true when you want to activate features like the Speakerphone. Plus, there’s a built-in tutorial, in case you need more assistance.
What features does the Jitterbug have for people who have difficulty hearing?
The volume adjusts from low to super-high, and has a Speakerphone option that appears when you move through the volume choices. The volume can also be adjusted while you are on the call. The Jitterbug Plus also is hearing aid compatible, with a M4/T4 rating.
Other than the Speakerphone, does the Jitterbug offer any other hands-free features?
Yes. Jitterbug phones are enabled with a Voice Dial feature, which makes it possible to dial contacts or numbers simply by saying the name or number aloud – no preprogramming is required.
Do Jitterbug phones have features for people who are visually impaired?
Yes. The Jitterbug has a sharp color screen with menus, messages, and Yes/No questions displayed in larger-than-average lettering. In addition, clear, backlit keys make it easy to use the phone in all light levels.
Is roaming and long distance included?

GreatCall covers most of the U.S. where cellular service is available from the major carriers.
