The Jitterbug J is equipped with the latest hearing aid compatibility technology called "T-coil" to ensure the best sound quality. It also features a padded earpiece that reduces background noise and is very comfortable for those who wear hearing aids. You can adjust the volume from low to max while you are on a call.
A:
The Jitterbug J weighs just 4 ounces (113 grams) and fits nicely in your hand like a modest size bar of soap. When closed, its smooth edges define a comfortable 4" long by 2" wide by 1" thick uniquely simplified phone. When open, it extends to 7" so there's a familiar distance between the patented, background noise reducing earpiece and the microphone where you talk - much like your home phone.
A:
The Jitterbug J uses a lithium ion rechargeable cell phone battery. The battery provides up to 4 hours of continuous talk time before needing to be recharged, depending upon how much you use your Jitterbug and the cellular radio signal in your area. We suggest charging your Jitterbug as often as you can to ensure that it is always ready to make and receive calls. You can easily check your battery strength on your Jitterbug's Phone Info screen. For your convenience, we offer several charging and power accessories, including an extra Jitterbug Battery, a Battery Charger and a Car Charger.
A:
The Jitterbug J is extremely intuitive and customizable. Only see the features you want. The lower part of the display screen, called the "Command Area", displays simple ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ questions that make using the phone very easy. For example, if you’re using your Phone Book and the name of your friend or family member is highlighted, the Command Area will display the question, "CALL?" To place the call, simply press the "Yes" key or use the scroll key to move to the next entry in your Phone Book, just like changing channels on a TV remote.
A:

Yes. The Jitterbug J is capable with a Voice Dial feature, which makes it possible to dial contacts or numbers simply by saying the name or number aloud. No training or prerecording is required. GreatCall also offers a hands-free Bluetooth headset for talking safely when in the car.

The following are approximate guidelines for your Jitterbug battery after being fully charged:

  • When your phone is on but not in use and you're in good signal areas - the Jitterbug battery should last up to up to 264 hours or about 11 days
  • When talking continuously, the Jitterbug battery should last up to up to 4 hours. The battery drains faster when you use your phone in weaker signal areas, and using bluetooth or speakerphone.
  • When your battery is out of power, it will take about 2.5 hours to recharge it using your Battery Charger accessory (included in the box with purchase). Once fully charged, the "Charging Complete" message will show on the outside screen of your phone.

Please note: If you are in a poor wireless radio signal area or out of range your battery will drain faster. We suggest getting into the habit of charging your Jitterbug every night, because often you won't know if you've been traveling in low signal areas.

5Star is NOT a substitute for 9-1-1. 5Star Response Agents are professionally trained and certified to provide assistance in any situation, including urgent situations. However, GreatCall strongly recommends that if you believe you are experiencing a critical, emergency situation, always bypass 5Star Urgent Response and contact 9-1-1 directly. Below are some situational examples of when NOT to use The 5Star:

  • Fire
  • Heart attack/stroke
  • Robbery/break-in

If a customer calls 9-1-1 with their 5Star device (Jitterbug or GreatCall Splash devices only - not a smartphone), a notification will be sent to the 5Star Urgent Response Center. After the 9-1-1 call is completed, a 5Star Agent may contact the customer to see if further assistance is needed.

A:

If you call 5Star and the 5Star Agent determines that you are experiencing an emergency, the agent will assist you in connecting to 9-1-1 emergency services.

5Star Agents may provide emergency services or 9-1-1 operators with information found in your Personal Profile, such as medications, allergies and personal contact numbers. They will inform the operator of the situation, where you are and will always stay on the line to ensure the situation has been resolved. Agents can even conference in your emergency contacts to speak with you or a registered nurse to answer any medical questions.

A:

The Personal Profile provides an additional level of protection to 5Star customers. It is an important tool that enables 5Star Response Agents to provide the best service possible. Potential information stored in the profile includes:

  • Basic information like name, phone numbers, gender, age and primary language
  • Locations frequently visited such as home, work, gym, doctors’ offices or vacation home
  • Emergency contacts
  • Medical information such as medications, doctors, hospitals and medical or physical conditions
  • Vehicles driven including make, model, color and license plate

Customers can provide as much or as little data as they choose to share. However, customers are encouraged to provide as much information as possible in the Personal Profile. The information should be periodically reviewed to make sure it is accurate.

A:
No. 5Star Personal Profile and service is limited to one user per subscription. Providing inaccurate or someone else’s information could be dangerous in an urgent situation.
A:
You can update the Personal Profile information by logging onto www.MyGreatCall.com and updating your personal information online or by calling our 5Star Account Support team directly at 800-463-5412.
A:

GreatCall systems and data are fully secured. GreatCall respects the privacy and confidentiality of all personal data provided to us. GreatCall is SAS 70 Type II audited, and trained to handle a customer’s personal and health related data when delivering 5Star service.

There is no automated transfer of data when contacting a 9-1-1 operator in a critical situation. The 5Star Agent remains on the call with the local 9-1-1 operator and acts as the customer’s advocate. That agent is responsible for verbally communicating pertinent information to the 9-1-1 operator.

2SAS 70: Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 – An internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) in 1992. It is used to report on the “processing of transactions by service organizations.” A SAS 70 Type II is known as “report on controls placed in operation” and “tests of operating effectiveness.”

To keep you safe and secure, our 5Star Urgent Response Agents use real-time information from multiple sources to provide the proper assistance in every situation. Our 5Star Agents rely on specialized training, information found in your Personal Profile, GPS information the 5Star tracking system is providing, and live communication between you and the agent on the phone. With this integrated approach, 5Star Agents have all the necessary tools to provide effective response and delivery on every call.

GPS is not perfect in all conditions, which is why our 5Star Agents are trained to verify your exact location rather than to rely on technology alone to keep you safe and secure.

The 5Star tries to get an updated GPS location fix every 20 minutes. If this fix is successful, the device then sends location and device information to our systems to report to Link Users. If the location fix is unsuccessful, due to the device being in a large building, parking garage or equivalent, the 5Star ends device information after 60 minutes.

The location can be updated manually at any time by clicking the Update Location link on the map.

The 5Star device must be on, fully charged and within the service network in order for The Link app to function properly. If you find that The 5Star device power and battery status are not updating properly:

  1. Contact the 5Star user and confirm that the device is on and charged.
  2. Restart the 5Star by pressing and holding the power button for at least 5 seconds (or until you hear, “Powering off”). Once the device is off, press the power button again. You will hear, “Welcome to 5Star” and the service indicator light at the top of The 5Star will begin blinking green, indicating the device is working properly.

Accuracy of the GPS fix to the 5Star user’s device can be negatively impacted by a variety of factors such as surrounding structures, buildings, mountains, valleys and weather conditions. At locations where the GPS fix is weak there can be certain situations where the 5Star user appears to have left a zone temporarily despite remaining stationary. To alleviate this, GreatCall has developed a learning algorithm that improves the accuracy of the 5Star user’s zones using historical data. As our system learns about the 5Star user’s locations and activity patterns, you should see these issues diminish over time.
