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.

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.

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.

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.

Yes. The Jitterbug J has a large, bright color screen with menus, messages and "Yes"/"No" questions displayed in larger-than-average lettering. Everything is easy to read. In addition, larger, backlit buttons make it easy to dial numbers in all lighting conditions. Also, The Jitterbug J is capable with Voice Dial, which allows you to call any number in your Phone Book by speaking the name aloud. This is a feature that can be turned on and off. There is no set-up or training required and it’s perfect for those with limited or no sight.

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.

If you dial 911, your J will communicate your location to the 911 emergency operator. We have GPS locator with calls placed to 911.

New customers can purchase a Jitterbug phone with a GreatCall Health & Safety Package which includes 5Star Service in the monthly plan.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

5Star Terms & Conditions can be found here

You can cancel your 5Star service at any time. There is no contract for the 5Star service or cancellation fees. All you have to do is call our 5Star Account Support Team at 1-800-463-5412.

The Health and Wellness Alert system will begin calling you within 24 hours of setting up your Check-in Calls so that you can begin feeling safer and more secure. The calls are designed to ask you very simply if you are doing well as it pertains to your chosen topics, or if you need assistance.

Receiving a Check-in Call:

  1. When your phone rings for your Check-in Call, you will see the following phone number: 1-866-656-9997. If you have a GreatCall phone when you signed up for this app, you also should have received this phone number in your Phone Book, under the name “Health Wellness Alert.”
  2. When you answer the call, you will be greeted by a friendly voice, who tells you how many “alerts” you have on this call.
  3. If you have another GreatCall app, like The Wellness Call, or Medication Reminders, and one is scheduled at the same time, this will also be an “alert” on the same call.
  4. After the initial greeting, your Check-in Call will begin.
  5. After you have provided answers for each topic, the system will thank you for your response and you can simply hang up the phone.
  6. If you have requested assistance, we will tell you that we are notifying your contact and you should hang up your phone so they can reach you.

Picking up a missed Check-in Call:

If you have missed a Check-in Call, and wish to provide a response, you can easily do so by calling the Health and Wellness Alert system from your GreatCall phone. For security purposes, you MUST dial in from your GreatCall phone, so that the system recognizes your account.

  1. If you have VoiceMail: If you have voicemail enabled on your account, you will receive a VoiceMail from the Health and Wellness Alert system. This message will let you know that you missed a Check-in Call Alert, as well as the time of the original alert. The system will also provide the Health and Wellness Alert phone number to call back: 1-866-656-9997.
    *PLEASE NOTE: Regular airtime charges apply for the duration of the call.
  2. If you do NOT have VoiceMail: If you do NOT have VoiceMail enabled on your account it is just as easy to complete a missed call:

    • Press the “YES” button to view your Call History.

    • Simply press the “YES” button to automatically call into the Health and Wellness Alert system, where you can retrieve your missed call.
    NOTE: If you have a Samsung R100, click the "Menu" button, then go to "Calls", and then "incoming calls" to find your missed calls.

Sometimes you may not be able to reach your phone, or it might be hard to make a call. Our goal is to ensure that you are helped as soon as possible, so your health and safety are not compromised. This service is designed to help you. It is very important that you set up your calls to work around your schedule, so you can answer them. Answering the calls and providing a positive response if you do not need assistance will take less than one minute.

If you do not answer your calls, then unnecessary notifications will be sent out and your list of contacts will not know if you really need help. Please ensure you answer these calls, so that if you ever do need assistance, if will be provided appropriately. Also, always keep your phone on and fully charged to ensure you receive your calls.

There are two ways in which the notification process will occur, meaning that our system will reach out and call your list of contacts that you provided during the set up process:

    • The system will call your first contact.
    • When your contact answers the phone, the system will greet them: “This is the Health and Wellness system” and then tell them that you requested their urgent assistance.
    • Your contact will be given the option to:
      • “Press 1 to hear the notification again.”
      • “Press 2 to disable the alert.”
    • It is very important that your contact do the right thing:
      • If they are going to assist you, then they should press “2,” so that no other contacts receive a call.
      • If they cannot assist you, they should hang up, so that the system will notify the next contact for help.
    • If you have provided an email address, they will also receive an email asking them to call 1-866-656-9997 to disable the notification so no one else is notified.
    • Additional contacts will be notified within 10 minutes, if the notification is not disabled.
  2. You missed a call, and all of your retries:
    • If you have missed your regularly scheduled Check-in Call, we will automatically try again in 15 minutes.
    • If you have setup additional retries, and you miss all of them, the system is set to take this as a sign that you need assistance and will call your first contact.
    • When your contact answers the phone, the system will greet them: “This is the Health and Wellness system” and then tell them that you requested their urgent assistance.
    • Your contact will be given the option to:
      • “Press 1 to hear the notification again.”

    • Additional contacts will be notified within 10 minutes, if the notification is not disabled.

Using the Splash’s built-in accelerometer, patented algorithms evaluate sudden changes in your body movement, in relation to your physical activity and posture, to identify falls. If your Fall Detection enabled Splash detects a fall, it will automatically contact a 5Star Medical Alert Agent without the need to press the button.

An “accelerometer” is a piece of technology that detects movement in multiple directions. Using this technology, the Splash is capable of identifying when a fall may have occurred.

You are eligible to get Fall Detection if you have the second-generation medical alert device, the GreatCall Splash, and have selected the Ultimate Health & Safety Package.

Yes. Fall Detection is only available to Splash customers with an Ultimate Health & Safety Package. The cost of this package is $34.99 per month and includes access to 5Star, Urgent Care, the GreatCall Link App, Fall Detection and Device Replacement Option.

If your Splash detects a fall, a voice prompt will play saying “Fall detected. Calling 5Star. Press button to cancel.” Immediately after this prompt the user will have a few seconds to press the button to cancel the call. If the button isn’t pressed during this time, 5Star will automatically be called to assist you.

The fall event is detected almost immediately. The emergency call is made approximately 20 seconds after the fall event. If you are able to get up and walk within this 20 second interval then your Splash will not make an emergency call. If you are not able to get back up after 20 seconds an emergency call will be placed.

The Splash may not detect 100% of all falls. In the event of a fall, always press the Call Button if you do not hear the voice prompt that your fall has been detected.

In most cases the Fall Detection algorithm can distinguish these situations from actual falls and will ignore them. If you accidentally drop your Splash and a voice prompt says “Fall detected. Calling 5Star. Press button to cancel,” press the Call Button immediately to cancel the call. You will hear “Call cancelled,” confirming that the Fall Detection call has been cancelled. Always wear the Splash around your neck using the specially designed Lanyard Accessory Set to minimize false Fall Detection calls.

Yes. If a fall is detected, a voice prompt will play saying, “Fall detected. Calling 5Star. Press button to cancel.” After this voice prompt plays you can press the Call Button to cancel the call. If you do not press the button, your Splash will automatically call 5Star after a few seconds.

Yes. Fall Detection only works when your Splash is worn around the neck using the specially designed Lanyard Accessory Set. This lanyard accessory will be provided to you for free when an Ultimate Health & Safety Package is selected. Using the Splash without this accessory is not recommended and will impact the accuracy of the Fall Detection service, which may cause false Fall Detection calls.

The Fall Detection Lanyard Accessory Set is automatically shipped to you whenever you select the Ultimate Health & Safety Package. If you purchased your Splash from a retail store, you will have an opportunity to select this package during the device activation process online or over the phone, and will receive this accessory a few days later in the mail. If you purchased your Splash directly from GreatCall on our website or over the phone with an Ultimate Health & Safety Package, you will receive both the Splash and the accessory at the same time.

The Splash must be worn with the Fall Detection Lanyard Accessory Set around your neck to ensure that the device is stable and in an optimal position for fall detection. The Magnetic Lanyard, included with this accessory set, features a magnetic clasp that can be separated by pulling the two ends apart to make it easier to place around your neck. Wearing or carrying your Splash in any other way may affect the accuracy of Fall Detection and may even cause false Fall Detection calls.

The lanyard is approximately 26 inches long.

It is recommended that you speak with your physician before using any new electronic device near your pacemaker.

Call us immediately at 1-866-490-0803 to obtain a replacement accessory at no additional cost. To minimize false Fall Detection calls, your Fall Detection service will be temporarily disabled while we send you a replacement accessory.

Yes. As part of the Ultimate Health & Safety Package you also get the Device Replacement Option which covers your Splash and Fall Detection Lanyard Accessory Set for defects and damage. Call us immediately at (866) 490-0803 to obtain a replacement accessory at no additional cost.

No. Alternative lanyard accessories do not provide the stability necessary for optimal fall detection. Use only the Fall Detection Lanyard Accessory Set provided for free when you select an Ultimate Health & Safety Package.

No. The Fall Detection Clip was designed to stabilize the Splash on your chest when worn around the neck. Do not use this clip to attach the Splash directly to your clothing as it may affect the accuracy of Fall Detection. Only use the included Magnetic Lanyard with the Fall Detection Clip to wear around your neck.

Yes. Your Splash actively monitors your motion whenever powered on. Depending on your level of activity you can expect your Splash to last up to 36 hours between charges. Always charge your Splash every night to ensure you have access to 5Star at the press of a button.

The Fall Detection Lanyard Accessory Set features a built-in hinge that allows you to swing open the clip so that it fits properly into the Charging Cradle. You should hear an audible tone and see the Battery Indicator turn green when your Splash is properly charging. Refer to the Instruction Guide included with your Lanyard Accessory Set for complete instructions.

You will hear this audio prompt if you purchased an Ultimate Health & Safety Package, but have not yet enabled your Fall Detection service. If you purchased your Splash from a retail store, your Fall Detection Lanyard Accessory Set will come to you in the mail a few days after activating your device. This accessory will include instructions on how to enable your Fall Detection service online or over the phone.

This is just a reminder to let you know that the Fall Detection service does not work while your Splash is powered off. Make sure your Splash is powered on and that you hear “Welcome to 5Star. Fall Detection enabled,” during power up to make sure your Fall Detection service is working.

No. Powering off your Splash turns off all of its features, including Fall Detection.

Yes. You can press the Call Button in any uncertain or unsafe situation to speak to a 5Star Medical Alert Agent. In the event of a fall, always press the Call Button if you do not hear the voice prompt that your fall has been detected.

Yes. If you already own a Splash, you are eligible to upgrade your plan to the Ultimate Health & Safety Package which includes the Fall Detection service. Call us at 866-490-0803 for more information on how to upgrade your plan.

HRO is a no questions asked phone replacement program. If a handset is ever lost, stolen, or broken, HRO ensures it is replaced quickly with no questions asked. Customers who enroll in HRO will be able to have their handset replaced once during a 12-month period as long as the customer remains enrolled in the program for 60-days. This is NOT an insurance program. It is an alternative to insurance.

Adding the Handset Replacement Option to your phone is easy. Just call a friendly GreatCall service representative at 1-800-733-6632.

For only $4 per month, per phone, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that if anything happens to your GreatCall phone – whether it’s lost, broken or stolen - we'll replace it with no questions asked. If something were to happen to your Jitterbug J, Jitterbug Plus or Jitterbug5 phone, you will receive a refurbished GreatCall “like-for-like” phone for a $25 replacement and shipping fee. If something were to happen to your Touch phone, you will receive a refurbished Touch phone for a $50 replacement and shipping fee.

If you have the Handset Replacement Option and need a Jitterbug J, Jitterbug Plus or Jitterbug5 handset replacement, the fee is $25. If you need a Jitterbug Touch, Jitterbug Touch 2 or GreatCall Touch3 handset replacement, the fee is $50. Replacement is “like-for-like”, same model and color.

If you have the Device Replacement Option and need a replacement device, the fee is $15 and will be charged and noted on your next billing statement.

You will receive a refurbished GreatCall phone within seven business days with the standard replacement option. For an additional $10, we will expedite the shipping so that you receive your replacement phone within three business days.

Replacement requests (for any reason) can be made after a customer has been enrolled in HRO for 60 days starting the day of enrollment. Customers who enroll in HRO will be able to have their handset replaced once during a 12-month period as long as the customer remains enrolled in the program.

Once you have added the Handset Replacement Option to your phone, you may replace your GreatCall phone once per 12-month period.

There is a 60-day waiting period based on the date of your enrollment in the Handset Replacement program. After this waiting period, we’ll replace your phone for any reason, no questions asked, once per year.

The original equipment manufacturer’s warranty is not applicable to phones replaced through the Handset Replacement option. If your replacement phone is not operating as it should, please call one of our friendly Customer Service representatives for assistance at 1-800-733-6632. Replacement phones purchased through the Handset Replacement Option have a 90-day warranty period from the replacement’s activation date.

The Regulatory Cost Recovery Charge is a charge assessed by Jitterbug associated with payment of government imposed fees and to recover the costs of compliance with government imposed regulatory requirements. It is not a tax or charge which the government requires Jitterbug to collect from its customers. This charge is subject to change from time to time as the cost of compliance changes.

The Regulatory Cost Recovery Charge includes compliance costs with the following fees:

Federal Regulatory Fee
This component is designed to recover the annual fee imposed on Jitterbug by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC); this fee is assessed by the FCC on each of the entities it regulates.

Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS)
This component is designed to recover the contributions that Jitterbug is required to make into the Federal TRS fund. This fund is designed to assist hearing and speech impaired persons with making and receiving messages.

Wireless Number Portability and Number Pooling
This component is designed to recover the costs associated with the federal mandates of number portability and number pooling:

Wireless Local Number Portability (WLNP)
This enables customers to keep their wireless telephone numbers when they switch wireless service providers.

Number Pooling
This is a telephone number conservation method that helps to delay area code exhaust situations.

Enhanced 9-1-1 (E911)
This component is designed to recover the costs in certain states where E911 cost recovery for wireless carriers does not exist or exists in a fashion that only provides partial recovery of E911-related costs. These E911 costs relate to government mandates requiring wireless carriers to deploy advanced technology to help emergency response agencies to better determine the location of the customer calling 9-1-1.

Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI) Notification Costs
This component is designed to recover costs incurred by Jitterbug to comply with FCC CPNI notice requirements.

Additionally, the Federal USF provides for discounted telecommunications services for schools, libraries and rural health-care facilities. All telecommunications providers are required to pay into the Federal USF, and their contributions may be recovered from customers.

State Universal Service Fund Fee
Certain states have established state Universal Service Funds. The purpose of these state universal service funds is to ensure affordable telecommunications service for all consumers in the state, especially residents in high-cost rural areas and low-income customers. In certain states, all telecommunications providers are required to pay into these funds, and their contributions may be recovered from customers.
