Best Review - Top 5 Cell Phone Plans for Seniors

F

or some seniors, the typical cell phone plan may not fit their needs well. The typical cell phone plan includes large amounts of talk time that far exceed their usage. For a senior who doesn't work and isn't involved with growing teenagers, their calling needs are sometimes less. In some instances in fact, it can be more economical to pay more per minute if usage is low enough. There are both traditional post-paid plans and prepaid cell phone plans that may better meet the needs of such seniors.

I got my Mom a Net10 phone as

I got my Mom a Net10 phone as the costings are so easy to do...10c a minute to call and a text costs 3c and that's it! No hidden fees, simple to use phones that come with 300 free minutes and national coverage! She loves her phone and gets real excited to get texts from her children and grandchildren. Her Net10 phone has been such a comfort to me being able to reach her wherever she is and I top up her airtime so she never runs out!

My vote is for TracFone SVC.

My vote is for TracFone SVC. It's perfect for seniors with lighted, big key pad - super basic, simple to use phone that has GPS emergency location and hearing aid compatible, easy to read minute display on screen. It's basic, cheap and reliable!

Finally...it's about time

Finally...it's about time cell phone companies worry about senior citizens! I was at WalMart the other day and save a Senior Value Cell phone plan by TracFone. I immediately bought it for my grandparents. The minutes are affordable and the phone is perfect for all their needs.

Hi: I'm wondering how come

Hi:

I'm wondering how come you have no mention of Value Plus Mobile? They have much lower rates than any other carrier out there with the best national coverage and U.S Based customer support. Their rates start at only $5.99 per month which includes 30 minutes as well. Perhaps you are unaware of them. Please look into them and let us all know what you think. All my friends and I have now switched to their plans.
