From cell phones to urgent response devices--and even a wearable watch that can be activated with help calls-- GreatCall is a perfect choice for all seniors.
GreatCall offers two different cell phones, both branded Jitterbug. They offer a Jitterbug smartphone and a Jitterbug Flip which can both only be purchased outright.
