GreatCall has two Jitterbug phones to choose from: the Jitterbug Flip ($99.99) and the Jitterbug Smart2 ($149.99). Both phones are compatible with any of the three plans below.
Jitterbug service plans are highly customizable. You can choose a simple pay-as-you-go cell phone plan or opt for a Health and Safety plan with extra features.
The pay-as-you-go plans start at $14.99 per month with 250 minutes of talking time. If you use your phone sparingly to make appointments or briefly chat with friends and family, this could be all you need. But you can opt for unlimited talking and texting for $39.00 if you have long, frequent conversations.
GreatCall offers three Health and Safety plans for Jitterbug phones: Basic, Preferred, and Ultimate. These plans offer a discount on pay-as-you-go minutes, and unlimited talk and text are only $20.00 if you sign on with one of them. Plus, all three come with features like the 5Star Service and some fun Brain Games.
The Preferred and Ultimate plans come with unlimited minutes, so you won’t have to pay extra to catch up with your friends or order takeout. These plans also come with GreatCall’s Urgent Care feature and GreatCall Link—extras that can help you out in a pinch (more on those features later).
Jitterbug uses Verizon towers, but you don’t need to be a Verizon customer. With a network that big, you’ll have cell service throughout most of the US.
Unlike Verizon’s usual service, you won’t need to sign a long-term contract to use Jitterbug. The service sticks with you month to month, but you’ll need to pay for talking minutes, texts, and any data you use each month.
