Samsung Jitterbug Plus (GreatCall)


The Samsung Jitterbug Plus from GreatCall is the best simple phone there is, with plenty of easy-to-use advanced features that set it apart from the pack.

Simple to use. Free 24-hour operator assistance. Large keypad. Good call quality. Lets you take and upload photos online. Many useful add-on services available

Hidden battery life indicator. Additional services can get pricey

We reviewed the Samsung Jitterbug J (4 stars) more than three years ago. A number of new, ultra-simple cell phones have come out since then, a few of which we've liked quite a bit, like the Just5 J509 ($89.99, 4 stars) and the Snapfon ez ONE-c ($59.99,...

Jitterbug Plus (Great Call) review: Jitterbug Plus (Great Call)


It's been three years since Great Call's last new Jitterbug phone, but its newest model has been released.

The Jitterbug Plus has reliable call quality, a huge keypad for easy typing, and a friendly user interface.

The Plus' camera is poor, there's no way to mute keypad tones, the calendar UI is tedious, and the health service fees are expensive.

Though the senior-aimed Jitterbug Plus is easy to use and has good call quality, it's overpriced for its low-end features.

"The Jitterbug was great, new version is even better!"


The big buttons and clear screen make it easy for the elderly and people with visibility issues to use. Now it has a camera so you can take photos and instantly share them on facebook!

Can't think of any cons.

Why I use an old Samsung SGH-R220, and I've been using this for over four years now, so I think I can tell you about it. The battery life of this phone is no issue for me since the hands-free is also a charger. However, I did take this on a business...

Dear reader, I think at least this used to be the case. Maybe not true any longer. But for a long time when cell phones were just coming out of the elite mindset, for all media a cool cellphone meant this model. And you find its pictures in all...

Samsung R 220


This was my first phone after I got into my current job around 3 years back. I bought it for Rs.6500, from gray market. Mind you, when I bought it without bill, I was very scared of something might go wrong with the phone. Praise the Lord, nothing has...
