GreatCall Jitterbug Smart Easy-to-Use 5.5” Smartphone for Seniors, Black, 1 Count is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new cell phone If you could see my old cell phone (my tech savvy daughters could not figure it out) you would realize how much I appreciate my new cell phone. I keep finding more and more things that I can do with it and am planning on geting rid of my land line when I have this one figured out and feel totally comfortable with it. I have had a steep learning curve to overcome. It has been worth it and I am hoping that this phone will last me a good long time. I also like that the phone bill is so manageable and hardly anyone I know who has a cell phone has such a good rate. This is a big bonus, considering the price I pay for other electronic services. Thanks for a great product and a great service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with product I waited a long time before deciding to get a smart phone. I called great phone from the number posted in AARP Mag. The person answering the phone was great. Made it very simple for this 80 year old to understand. Most important part was being able to try the phone for a month if not satisfied could return with full refund. I have called several times for assistance and each person was helpful and polite. I am very impressed. They gave me some tips to make this learning process easier. Telling my friends to call the Great Call number.

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 4 out of 5 by from Good but... Overall, I am very satisfied with my Jitterbug Smart phone. However, the text messaging screen for entering a text message is only about a half inch tall and one and one quarter inch wide while there is two to three inches of white space above it. Terrible waste of space and you cannot see you email message without much scrolling. Also each email is limited to 160 spaces so each "text" is kinda small...and you have to pay for all those small texts. And, sadly, I cannot find out how to change my plan. I clearly need less talk time and more text allowance. I have had the phone one day and I am already at 73 texts used out of 100 allowed. Pathetic. But nonetheless I just have to learn to use this phone and determine the best combination of talk, text and data for me.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great phone for surfing the internet Jitterbug Touch is easy to use. I needed a cellphone and their price was much more reasonable than any other options I looked at. I don't use a cellphone except for calling and for an emergency. My wife doesn't have one and I rarely use mine, except for the internet now. But I like to have it and it's something very helpful to have and good for emergencies if we travel. But one thing I don't like about it is the menu. When I power it on, they have a menu and I start looking for the app I want. It stops midway and has me start over again and that's an annoyance. Otherwise it's great and I'm still learning it. The phone works very well and has got good reception and quality. I had no idea I could get apps for it and put music, audio books and photos on it so I've had a good time adding a lot of that to it. That's all the plus that I did not expect. I was just buying what I thought was a basic phone at a good price.

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.
