Anyone here have a Jitterbug phone? Or know someone who has one? I have some questions....

I know, I know, it's a phone for 90-year-olds.....but I really hate complicated phones. I'm a photographer with a fancy Nikon and I use a computer every day, but those damn smart phones make me want to throw them against a cement wall. I just want a phone for talking! Plus I want the battery to not run down in one frikkin' day!
1. Do Jitterbug batteries last a lot longer?
2. Are the service plans decent, with no ugly surprises?
3. If Jitterbugs are bad, what else can I do for an easy-to-use phone?

1. I don't have a Jitterbug,

I have a Tracfone, pay as you go. You can buy minutes, or months of service, or both. They have several different phones on thier website www.tracfone.com

3. I had a Tracfone and was not happy.

If you do not use your minutes that you purchased within a certain amount of time, you lose them.

4. I have a Jitterbug and I think it is a good service.

I pay $21 a month. It is a very easy-to-use service. If you will see my post below, you will see that I was not satisfied with Tracfone.

5. I love my Jitterbug

It's easy and with big numbers for the fifty-plus ones of us with bad eyes. The customer service is superb. Their plans are very clear, sensible and easy to understand.
