    • Great Call does not have great prices if you do not use 100 min a month. Buy a pay to go phone & a $10.00 phone card for minamal usage. T-mobile has this plan or higher if you use more minutes. Being a senior myself I was not even aware of this. Check all phones and compare how much you would use a phone.

    Are there cell phone plans specifically for seniors?
     
    • There are many plans available for seniors. From ones specifically designed for seniors like one below that gives a fair amount of minutes to be used to ones that are only for emergencies, such as pay as you go or prepaid accounts. http://cellphones.about.com/od/serviceplans/a/verizon_s2.htm
