Jitterbug Prepaid Wireless Plan Compilation

Cell Phone Plans at Jitterbug Are Specifically Designed for Seniors

This is a listing of the current GreatCall's Jitterbug prepaid wireless service plans without a contract. While Jitterbug plans work for anyone, they’re specifically designed for seniors.

With a Jitterbug plan, there are not only no contracts but also zero cancellation fees and no long distance fees between US numbers. However, the plans are a tad different depending on the phone you will use with it, so keep that in mind when shopping.

Tip

AT&T and T-Mobile are some other prepaid wireless carriers you might be interested in. Also, in addition to Jitterbug phones are several other phones perfect for senior citizens.

Jitterbug's individual prepaid wireless plans range from $14.99 /month all the way up to $39.99 /month, but that's just for calling minutes. There's an extra charge if you want to add texting or data.

Minutes

  • 200 Minutes: $14.99 /month
  • 600 Minutes: $19.99 /month
  • 1,500 Minutes: $29.99 /month
  • 3,000 Minutes: $39.99 /month
  • Unlimited Talk and Text: $49.99 /month

Texting Options

Unless you buy the unlimited talk/text option for $49.99 /month, there's a separate charge if you want to add texting to your Jitterbug plan:

  • 300 Texts: $3.00 /month
  • 700 Texts: $6.00 /month
  • 1,250 Texts: $10.00 /month
  • 2,500 Texts: $15.00 /month

Data

The Jitterbug Smart supports data, with any extra data over what you pay for, adding an additional $0.10 /MB to the bill. That makes the overage charges come out to around $100 for every extra one gigabyte.

These are the options:

  • 40 MB: $2.49 /month
  • 100 MB: $5.00 /month
  • 200 MB: $10.00 /month
  • 500 MB: $15.00 /month
  • 1,000 MB (1 GB): $20.00 /month
  • 2,500 MB (2.5 GB): $30.00 /month

Health & Safety Packages

The calling minutes for both the Jitterbug Flip and the Jitterbug Smart can be had for less money if you opt for one of the  Health & Services Packages as well.

With this special package, you not only get cheaper calling minutes (plus the same texting and data options as above) but also 24/7 access to urgent care doctors and nurses; they're just one button away.

Tip: Neither can the Flip nor the Smart delete calls or track steps, but the Flip does support MyWorld ($4 /month) while the Smart does not.

There are three packages available that each offer different services, which you can read about through the link above. For example, the most inexpensive plan, Basic, excludes Urgent Care, GreatCall Link, Personal Operator, and Product Replacement features. However, the Ultimate plan includes all of those features and more.

  • Basic: $19.99 /month
  • Preferred: $24.99 /month
  • Ultimate: $34.99 /month

The resulting costs for minutes if you purchase one of these plans is shown below. Take note of the fact that there are a few new options here not seen in the regular minutes as described above.

  • 50 Minutes: $5.00 /month
  • 600 Minutes: $10.00 /month
  • 1,000 Minutes: $15.00 /month
  • 2,000 Minutes: $25.00 /month
  • Unlimited Talk and Text: $40.00 /month
