Jitterbug Plus Silver

The Jitterbug Plus is another contender in the senior cell phone arena and follows in the footsteps of the other Jitterbug cell phones. Some of the features this phone has include a bright color screen that shows the large numbers well, back-lit keypad with big buttons, crisp on-screen graphics, amplified speaker with clear sound, easy navigation & live customer support 24/7. The Jitterbug Plus is available in silver and red.


Like other Jitterbug phones, the Jitterbug Plus is designed to fit into the changing lifestyles of seniors. Features are built into the phone to help maintain independence, without sacrificing usefulness or aesthetics.

One of the new services from Jitterbug available on the Plus is the 5Star service. Essentially, this service replaces a Personal Emergency Response (PERS) service. If a Jitterbug Plus customer finds themselves in any trouble, they can press “5 *” on their phone and they will immediately be connected with a NAED Certified Response Agent. The Plus utilizes patented GPS technology, which helps response personnel determine your location quickly and accurately.
