Knack or Coupe? Which is best for an elderly parent?
I recently got my mom a Jitterbug.
Since my brother added her to his VZW plan, I'm not paying so it's not my call. Plus, if she calls any of the family (we're all on VZW) using any other phone it will eat up our minutes, plus hers. She still has a landline so she can use that in case of emergency.
I say the Knack.
Alexander Graham Bell intended the telephone to be used for talking. I respect my elders, although there seem to be less of them every year.
Seriously, I like this phone so much that I found two for sale and bought them for spares in case mine dies. First one I had ate itself.
With Verizon, all I had to do was register each phone (activate) at no charge. Easy to do:
1. Call Verizon
2. Turn off the current phone
3. Give them the EIN (they check for stolen)
4. Power on the new phone
5. Dial *228 and choose option 1.

I inserted an opinion about the phone. You inserted an opinion about the thread. Suggest you get a life.
Used to run into folks that were a-holes on AOL, but you could click ignore and they went back under their rock.
I made the mistake of clicking notify on new replies.
Won't do that again.
There is a very real chance that the person in question is
1.) No longer looking at these phones wondering which to buy
2.) No longer looking at these forums waiting for a response to the thread
But you DID however bump a fairly useless topic (both of these phones are EOL and hard to get unless you order online) praising the values of a phone that fits a very niche market. There are more current phones that accomplish the same tasks as the Knack that are newer, have more technological options and are still very easy to find.
So......yeah, thanks for your input. I'm sure that it was very well recieved to the person that was looking for it.
