Not impress with jiggerbug. There phones are locked and you cannot change carriers (MVNO). My mother is blind in one eye and has partial site in other. I picked her up the Cenior phone. I got it from yippz. It has large buttons, and when you press the numbers they are read back to you. It also has braille on all the buttons and includes a magnifier. This really comes in handy when were at restaurants and she needs to read something. It has a flashlight too. She only carries the phone for emergencies, so I signed her up on a plan that is only $3.33 a month. One of her friends loved the phone and picked one up too. She's a talker and I know that she went with a plan that lets her talk and text for $10 a month.
