More Complaints About Jitterbug Cell Phone Service

Jitterbug review at: http://www.measuredup.com/jitterbug-customer-service-reviews-2196

Jitterbug offers a great product, a Samsung phone, and a wellthought out service for older people. Unfortuneately when something goes wrong, it really goes wrong. My wife has spent more than twenty hours on the phone trying to sort out a replacement unit for her father. She finally gave up and cancelled the service. In addition to the hours she spent, two other family members spent time trying to get the "jitters" out of the system. In addition to first recommending that the phone that didn't work be sent to Samsung! they then lost the phone when they finally agreed to replace it. Found it two weeks later and then spent another two weeks getting the replacement unit in the mail. After it arrived we spent four days trying to activate the service, to no avail. If this company cannot sort out how to fix service and equipment problems quickly and conveniently it would be better to stick with Verizon and let Jitterbug implode on its own incompetence.

I have never been so disappointed in my life. The phone is as heavy as a brick and I don't receive any phone calls on my number. I have called the Customer Support center but they are not able to help. All I receive is "we are sorry..." - well, that does not help my current situation. The commercials are cool but the service and support SUCK!

I purchased this phone over three months ago and have spent more time talking to the worthless Customer Service Department since the the billing has been incorrect month after month. The reps keep giving me a different excuse. The service coverage is terrible! My phone works down the street but does not work at my house. I thought the phone would be great for my mother -- but the company seems to be more of a scam then anything else. My vote: go with ANYONE ELSE.

Thank you for this review. This will be very helpful for people who are prospecting to buy a simple phone. My mom is using the Just5 Easyphone, and I’m glad that this is the phone she chose to buy. I would recommend the use of this one as this doesn’t cause any headache. My mom is very happy with Just5. It’s very reliable and very practical at the same time. In fact, my mom can only spend as low as $3.33 a month when she gets the cheapest minute plan offered. More so, I haven’t encountered any negative feedback about this phone yet.
