Rated 2 out of 5 by from Returned Smartphone I returned the Jitterbug Smart Phone because it appears that GreatCall doesn't have its own network and I would have had to access an available WI-FI network that I trusted. I contacted GreatCall to ask if I could use this phone with my Verizon wireless account. The service person suggested I unpackage the phone and use Home-TAP-Options to check. Since I planned to return the phone if I could not hook into Verizon, I decided to send it back in an unopened condition. It would have been so much easier if this information had been given in the documentation. I would only recommend this phone to a boomer+ who has had previous experience hooking into a WI-FI network using a PC.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Jitterbug-Great Call The ads all said how easy the "Smart-Phone" is to use indicating a NOVICE could use it which I believe is misleading! Fortunately my son-in-law is very knowledgeable in these devices and he helped me finish setting it up and has walked me thru it's use several times. I am not comfortable with it but am able to use the phone which is the reason I got it for emergencies primarily when in the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT CALL The Jittberbug phone is easy to use. However, I got myself in trouble with it in the first few days I had it. I called Great Call and the people there helped me in language that was easy for me to understand. Also the patience they had with me was so wonderful. I would and have recommended this phone and Great Call to many of my friends already. I am still learning all the features of this phone but I know if I get stuck Great Call will be there to help me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from TEDIOUS PROGRAMMING, NOT INTUITIVE I had envisioned the similar ease of the well-known smartphone and was very disappointed to learn how tedious it is to program and use the phone's features. This was not my first rodeo; I was able to use the internationally known smartphone with ease within minutes. I do not recall if the literature (pre-sale) advised that texts were NOT considered data and, in fact, were at a cost of $.10 each - coming in or going out. I learned this when my statement arrived. I was charged for my Greatcall Welcome text AND my Google Welcome text (activating and using the Jitterbug Smartphone REQUIRES setting up a Google account and giving them a credit card number IN CASE you ever buy something from Google). I called Greatcall immediately about the issue and was advised that "data" means anything through the Internet. I changed my plan after being talked out of canceling. We'll see if I stay with it. The guide to using the Jitterbug Smartphone is not user-friendly, in my opinion. This comes from someone with 33 years of computer use on many different computer systems and software as well as teaching others how to use different programs. The people at Greatcall are really nice and a joy to do business with. That is a major plus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think it's good! I am slow in picking up on all the bells and whistles and so I haven't given out my number yet! I am not really able to properly review this item yet, which is the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of five. There is excellent customer service and the phone comes with a well written manuel. I just need to spend some time and figure it all out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5.5" Smart Phone for Seniors This phone is such an improvement over my last smart phone. It's most responsive and it's larger screen offers greater clarity to texting and using the Internet. It was a "smart" purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still requires some tech savy If the recipient is not familiar or facile with a computer or other cell phone learning curve may still be too great. Better to stay with old model. But if tech savy, great.
