    You may check out the review published in this website:
    Just5 - Prepaid Cellular

    I personally like this review as the author is not biased and very straightforward. This actually served as one of my references, too, when I was checking for Just5. My mom has been using this phone for more than eight months now and she really finds it great! So I’m sure that your Dad will love it, too.

    Users of this service still happy? Interested to know how well it works. Going to need something like this soon for my mom.
    I've seen mention of Jitterbug and Tracfone's SVC offering the same kind of thing. How is this better than for instance the SVC phone? It's quite expensive at $90 for the handset! How do they justify that cost if the others offer similar rates and features? All of them have emergency assist so that is not really the issue.

    I just checked out a picture of the Just5 phone and I'm surprised to see that it has large buttons perfect for seniors. I remember a similar phone I have read about on timtechs news and it's called John's phone which is said to be the world's simplest phone but it doesnlt have an LCD screen like the Just5 so I prefer the latter

    I've been looking at the Just 5 for a couple months now. There's supposed to be a new model (larger *pop up* screen) coming to the US soon, whatever soon means. It's the CP 11, looks great but not the color choices of the CP9.

    I wrote to customer service from their website.. very quick answers btw. One of the built in ring tones sounds like a land line phone *yeah!* and that's where I discovered the 11.

    The only things holding me back from buying one (or two) of these phones is the carrier network. We've tried plans on the GSM networks before and have little to no reception.. T-mobile being the worst. Currently, our carrier, verizon, has passable service but is the ONLY one with a tower within 20 miles of home.

    We really want to go pre-paid, our contract with Verizon is over but their pre-paid plans do not make me smile.

    I think we are going to get a couple of these phones for my parents who do not live in a dead zone for xmas.

    Any opinions on the Tracfone SVC, I was considering getting it, but there is so many options to choose from now.
