The Just5 is a GSM phone that has been designed especially for seniors or people that are not tech savvy. The phone has just 5 simple features:
1. Big Buttons
2. Ease of Operation
3. Personal Emergency Response System
4. Amplified Sound
5. Long Lasting Battery
The button on the back is an SOS button that can be programmed to call an emergency contact when pressed.
The Just5 is available in several colors and can be purchased for $89.99. You can either use the phone with your existing AT&T or Tmobile SIM card, or you can purchase refillable minute packages that are priced from $10-$40. These packages have 100-unlimited minutes, which are good for 90 days.

Don’t laugh, but this would be a great phone to switch you SIM card into if you are going hiking or something semi-dangerous.
@Meredyth – I totally wouldn’t laugh at the idea of carrying a back-up phone, but I think paying nearly $90 for a back-up phone is kind of much. I actually do have a prepaid phone I take on vacations and stuff like that it was super cheap and if anything happens to it, I don’t worry. My Samsung slider was $30 with Tracfone and aircards are about the same price as with Just5. Paying anything over $50 for a back-up phone just seems silly when there are better priced options out there with the same type of network capabilities.
