"The Jitterbug works great for my Dad."5.0 starson by kateyami
Pros: Easy to use and to understand. The phone screen has questions with basic YES or NO navigation. The volume is really loud and has an adjustment button on the outside of the phone that allows for easy adjustment mid call.
Cons: The contacts in the phone Book only allow for one phone number with each name. If you have multiple numbers (cell, home, work), you have to enter each as a separate entry.
Summary: My father refused to use a cell phone. I was frustrated because he would never take it with him. Now he carries his Jitterbug. It was easy enough for him to use and understand. I feel much better knowing he has a phone he can use when he is out and about. I was able to pick separate ringers for me and my brother, so my Dad also knows when it is us calling. He really likes the huge fonts when dialing. I am also able to get on-line to update my Dad?s phone whenever necessary. The free website account called MyJitterbug.com allows me to add Phone Book entries and Calendar events no matter where he is. They update and are in his phone for reference. Finally, the plan includes free services I have not seen anywhere else. With the LiveNurse program, my Dad can call and talk to a registered nurse 24 hours a day ? and she is actually a live person, not a recording. I could not imagine a better value for him.
