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?"

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.
