One feature that appealed to me is that you can have a friend configure the phone contact list for via the web without access to the phone. This allows a nephew to help an aunt keep her contact list up to date. It has one very simple feature that should be standard on nearly all cellphones. When you close it, it automatically resets to ground state.
You buy either model of Jitterbug phone for , and you then buy access airtime prepaid minutes direct from Jitterbug. You don’t need to sign up with a local cellular carrier. You can pay as little as a month. You don’t sign a contract. Long distance to and roaming throughout the USA and Canada are free. I am not 100% sure you can roam around Canada and have these work connecting via Canadian cellphone carrier. I have a query in. Unfortunately, the Jitterbug service is not available for sale outside the USA. Your phone won’t work in Europe.
The JitterBug phone itself is manufactured by Samsung, so in theory any carrier could support it. They would need to provide the operator and directory assistance services to fully emululate what Jitterbug does. From time to time, I jitter at Canadian carriers to support it, but so far so success.
