Now when you trip on your way downstairs and land on your only GOOD tooth, you can thank your 2-year-old for calling for help!
We don't have a landline. I got tired of hanging up on people wanting to talk about how much money I owed them or how we could save on our mortgage if we handed over a fat pile of cash. Enough already... I just want to watch Netflix!
As usual, I was right and, as I sat wallowing in self-pity over the fact that I wasn't the one to patent this little guy, I found myself ordering one right there on the spot. Just5 is an award winning phone with big buttons, a large keypad, and a bright monochrome screen, making it the perfect cell phone for children, seniors, or anyone seeking an easy to use phone... bada bing, bada bang. But wait! That's not all! The phone has an emergency button located on back that; when pressed, will automatically text an urgent message (e.g. “I’m having an emergency, please answer”) to each number, then dial them in prioritized order. When dialing, the phone will sound a loud siren to attract the attention of others. Once someone answers a call, the phone automatically switches to loudspeaker mode for easier communications. This feature is vital if a user drops the phone after pressing the SOS button. Perfect!
The phone is very small, lightweight and easy to use, but if you're trying to impress the ladies, it's probably not going to be your best bet. The charge lasts FOREVER (maybe because I never use it) and the cost is fairly minimum, considering the alternative. The phone runs around $70+ depending on the model, but I got mine on sale for around $50. You can probably find one online for a good price and I know Walmart carries them (watch out though, I heard they don't include the SIM card that is included when you order direct). It's a great option if you don't have a landline and want a little peace of mind incase of an emergency. And if you're worried that your teenage daughter might be sending incriminating selfies to some guy she met at the mall, get her one of these: she'll be lucky if she doesn't break a finger trying to text him her phone number (this beast is old school: no camera, no video, no social media, no apps)! Win-win.
