Keeping in touch is more important than ever, but when it comes to navigating a smart phone as a child or as an adult with visual or hearing impairments, it’s not always so easy to make that call. Fortunately, this 4G large screen phone from Jethro is streamlined and simple so you’ll always be able to get in touch of those you care about.

Large Screen and Hearing Aid Compatible

This phone is perfect for seniors or anyone who has difficulty hearing or seeing standard smart phones. The 2.8-inch vivid screen makes it easy to read, and the large keypad buttons can be easily seen and felt in the dark. The sound quality is also hearing aid compatible without any signal interference.

Emergencies and More

This phone is a perfect option for children to call their parents or seniors to call a contact in case of emergencies thanks to an SOS button that can call and text up to 5 contacts including 911. The emergency message will also automatically send a Google map link with GPS location. However, the phone also has several other features including a camera, flashlight, FM radio, calendar, and alarm. It’s just smart enough to be convenient, but not overwhelming for tech-averse users or young children.

Why Customers Love It

Amazon customers are raving about this senior-friendly phone giving it an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Verizon customers found this phone easy to activate on their current plan. Other customers opted for an affordable $5 per month prepaid plan. The coverage was great, and one user mentioned the battery took 9 days to die with little use.
