I am 28 years old and for the first time interested in a cell phone. I have been looking around at all the different companies and find the prices to be quite high. Especially since I don't even know how to use half of the functions. I'm sure I could learn them if I wanted, however I am just an old fashioned girl and could care less about the new technology. I suppose if you are a business person, you would need all of the services provided in the new technology. However, I am just looking for something affordable in this day and age to fit my needs. I have had a prepaid phone for the last three months and found myself spending around $50 a month on it. I even tried to not use it too often but even if you get one call in a day, you are charged $1 a day plus .10 cents a minute. I believe Jitterbug minutes roll over which is great.
If you only need 1000 minutes or less, and don't need much more than talk and text, this seems to be an excellent choice. I guess it goes back to "you get what you pay for" and why pay for a bunch of services that are pointless to your needs. It seems as though it is geared mainly towards elderly which I believe is a wonderful thing for them, however I am attracted to it as well due to the simplicity of it. They are adding a lot of other services to the plan if you choose to add them, but it is up to you. They are only things to help the elderly out which I think is a wonderful thing. Maybe it will help organize their lives. This world is becoming too fast paced and stressful for me. Sit back and enjoy life a little.
