There are two cellular service providers that come to mind when I think of seniors and simplicity. They are known for their outstanding customer service. You may have seen these companies’ ads in print and on TV. Ultimately, anyone can become a customer. You do not need to be over 60. Let me give you an overview.
Great Call https://www.greatcall.com
Great Call service runs on the Verizon network. They originally became known for their Jitterbug flip phone. The phone has been revised (known as the Jitterbug Flip) and it seems beautiful with large numbers. Great Call also offers a simplified smartphone, known as the Jitterbug Smart, which runs on the Android platform. They offer a menu of calling minutes, texts, and data depending on your needs. An unlimited plan (for calling and texts) is also available. You cannot bring your own phone and use it with Great Call.
Consumer Cellular https://www.consumercellular.com/
Consumer Cellular runs on the AT&T network. They have won two JD Power awards for best customer service among non-contract cellular providers. Consumer Cellular offers flip phones and smartphones. They sell the iPhone and give the option of an affordable payment plan if desired. You can also bring your own AT&T compatible phone and use it with Consumer Cellular. They offer a menu of calling minutes, texts, and data depending on your needs. An unlimited plan (for calling and texts) is also available.
Both Great Call and Consumer Cellular are considered to be contract free cellular providers. You can cancel your service at any time without penalty. You can port your existing number to either provider and port out should you wish to take your business elsewhere.
