Jitterbug5 - Easy-to-Use Big Button Cell Phones
The overwhelming movement in the cell phone industry is smaller cell phones. As
the phones become more petite, the keys get tiny and operating the cell phone becomes
difficult, especially for senior citizens. Phone companies have been discontinuing
large button cell phones, making access to simple, senior-friendly cell phones much
Answering this need is the Jitterbug5, the best big button phone for seniors. The
Jitterbug5 is designed with common sense features that make it an unintimidating
and easy–to-use cell phone for anyone, but specifically seniors.
Why Big Buttons?
Big buttons on the Jitterbug5 cell phone are one of the most distinctive and helpful
aspects of the phone. The keypad is large and easily seen, allowing for effortless
dialing. The labeling of the buttons is clear and uncluttered, which helps eliminate
confusion or mistakenly hit keys. Though most cell phones are changing their design,
the Jitterbug5 remains committed to big button phones that are extremely helpful
to seniors looking for an easy-to-use cell phone.
While most cell phones are pushing for more features and unnecessary functions,
the Jitterbug5's mission is to keep the cell phone experience easy and enjoyable.
The Jitterbug5 enables simplified navigation on their phones, using large yes/no
buttons for making clear selections on the basic menu. Numbers and text are displayed
in a large, well-defined font, which can be easily viewed on the sizable color screen.
The entire keypad is backlit for ease of use in full and low lighting.
The Jitterbug5 has a powerful speaker that amplifies sound clearly and at a higher
volume. This feature is helpful for senior citizens who may struggle to hear conversations
on the majority of other cell phones.

has a photo-sharing feature that allows you to post your photos online without wires,
computers, or photo programs. Simply take your picture and press a button to upload
the picture to your favorite photo-sharing site.

life. It is not uncommon for the standard smartphone to require daily charging,
if not throughout-the-day charging. The Jitterbug5 has a highly efficient battery,
lasting up to 25 days on standby mode. Many seniors use the Jitterbug5 as a safety
and medical alert device, as well as a communication tool, and the extended battery
life allows for confidence and trust that your cell phone will be ready when you
