Jitterbug and GreatCall
whats funny is that this thing actually has a dial tone when you open it.....i work at nextel and the other day i had an old lady come and ask me while her i205 had no dial tone when she turned it on.......i could help but smile and then lagh when she walked out of the store
well lady this is the phone for you!!
my mom is a specialist in services for the elderly. as people get older both eyesight and motor control typically weakens. that means that it's tought to read small print (not just on screens but on buttons too) and that it's tough to accurately press small buttons. my mom saw these phones and thinks they're a godsend. she's old enough that she's probably considering getting one and can't wait until jitterbug is available for the 1000+ people in the nursing home she manages.
I couldn't have imagined before working at a wireless carrier store how many people ask why there is no dial tone, or that they want a phone for their parent/grandparent but it needs to be basic (apparantly the free phones are too complicated in some cases)
This is the polar opposite of the firefly and similar kid based phones, still simple, and especially the three button phone, as simple as it can get and still make and receive calls.
Finally grandma can pimp out with her jitterbug, while callin' her peeps on her way to bingo!
