Today Great Call announced a new version of the Jitterbug. The Jitterbug J is a clamshell with large buttons similar to the original Jitterbug, but it is thinner and lighter than the previous model. The Jitterbug J has Bluetooth, so users can take advantage of wireless headsets. It also has improved on-screen navigation, custom ringtones, dedicated speakerphone key, call waiting and 30% more battery life. The Jitterbug J also offers new services, including MyCalendar, which lets users add calendar items online that automatically sync with their handset; new SMS templates; 24/7 access to a nurse call-in service; and a Complete Care package that bundles in roadside assistance and free replacement of lost or broken phones. The Jitterbug J costs $147 and includes a car charger. It is available online and via select retailers.

I wish all providers would carry this phone. How many times have you spoken with the older generation who need big keypads? I do at least once a day.
There are options available. VZW has the Samsung Knack for example, with excelently sized buttons, fonts, and screen. Volume is up there too. Dedicated ICE and 911 buttons bring things into crystal focus for those that need it as simple as possible...
