Cell Phones For Seniors

From Alliance for Generational Equity (AGE): "Older Americans can now purchase a “senior friendly” prepaid cell phone for less than $15 and get service for as little as $7 a month, according to an analysis conducted by the Senior Advocate Health & Safety Project of the independent and nonprofit Alliance for Generational Equity (AGE), which represents seniors as well as Americans in other generations.

High prices have often been cited by an estimated 13-19 million U.S. seniors for not taking advantage of the health, safety and other benefits of owning a cell phone. In response, the Senior Advocate Health & Safety Project of the independent and nonprofit Alliance for Generational Equity (AGE) undertook a study of phones and plans offered by three leading “pay as you go” cell phone offerings aimed at older seniors: GreatCall Jitterbug; Consumer Cellular (which offers a discount for AARP members); and SVC Senior Value Cell Phone by TracFone.

Looking at the three wireless options, AGE found that Senior Value Cell Phone had no activation fee, the least-expensive option for service (allowing consumers to keep their phone active for about $7 a month, requiring only $20 in use or payment every three months), and the lowest-priced “senior friendly” handset, the Samsung T155G, for $14.95.

By contrast, both Jitterbug and Consumer Cellular require a $35 “start up” or “activation” fee for new service, impose higher entry points for consumers ($14.99 a month for 50 minutes on Jitterbug and $10 a month to maintain service on Consumer Cellular), and feature more expensive “senior friendly” handsets ($49-$79 for Jitterbug, even though its features are very similar to the SVC handset, and $25-$30 for Consumer Cellular’s Doro handsets)."

The complete news release from Alliance for Generational Equity (AGE),can be found here.

Control


We value our ability to go where we want to go and do what we want to do.

We like being in control. It's as American as apple pie.

So why do most of us allow cell phone companies to tell us what to do?

They make us sign contracts to get a "free" phone (that isn't free at all).

We're forced to pay all sorts of charges for things so unclear and obscure that most people just pay them rather than take the time to decipher the small print and asterisks and footnotes.

It's nuts!

TracFone has no contracts.

No bills.

You choose your phone, buy Airtime and that's it.

Talk and text.

You're in control.

Get TracFone.

Be in control.

Freedom



We love to talk about freedom. Yet most of us think nothing about signing a contract just to use a cell phone. That's the opposite of freedom!

What do we get from this? We get a monthly bill with mysterious charges that would confuse rocket scientists AND brain surgeons.

We're locked into a relationship with a phone company for 2 years or more.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

TracFone offers freedom, control and savings.

You don't have a contract and you never get a bill. There are no hidden charges or secret fees. You pay for what you need and don't pay for what you don't. You choose a phone and can buy another one whenever you like without having to sign a contract -- or extend your current one.

You save money. And you gain control over your expenses.

You want freedom? Get TracFone.

Why pay more?


TracFone is the least expense way to own a cell phone in America.

So why would you pay more for a phone that you rarely use? And why would you sign a contract to use it?

You can purchase your TracFone for as little as $10 and pay $20 every three months to keep it active.

Avoid
  • Getting surprised by cell phone bills with charges you don't understand;
  • Being locked into two-year contracts with $175 cancellation fees,
  • Having to pay overage charges as high as 45¢ per minute.
