I think jitterbug is primarily an emergency-use only phone...????

I was thinking the same thing... that it's an emergency use phone only. Have you looked into Cricket? My teenage daughter uses Cricket... no contracts, and I don't have to worry about any minutes... as she gets local/long distance, text messaging, vm, internet all unlimited for about $40 a month. Again she is a teenager so that's all she needs. So far the service has been great...

Depends on what you want. You have to pay a monthly fee for jitterbug plus the cost of the phone. I prefer the pay as you go option and a low-cost phone from Target (Virgin Mobile - $20+) but I don't use my cell phone often.

Ditto, I thought Sunny was looking into taking a dance class. You just never know until you open the thread, LOL.
