We love Tello’s $10 plan because it is one of the most affordable options. It includes unlimited minutes and texts along with 1GB of LTE data. Having unlimited talk & text is great for seniors because they will never need to worry about how long they spend on the phone or how many messages they send.
Seniors will also find the 1GB of LTE data is enough for Google Maps navigation, reading articles online, and light social media usage.
4GB of data per month is plenty for light to average users. It is enough for reading news articles, using Google Maps for directions, and even social media usage.
Mint Mobile’s plan includes unlimited minutes and texts too. It’s a great option to stay in touch with friends and family.
Having good customer service is great for seniors who may be less familiar with smartphones. It’s nice being able to call Ting customer service and speak with a human to answer your questions.
Ting’s plans are reasonably affordable, too. The average Ting bill is just $23 per month. Ting offers affordable rates for minutes, texts, and data. You only pay for what you use. This is nice because during months you use less, you pay less.
Ting is best suited for lighter users. Ting uses the Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile networks for coverage. You choose which network you want when you sign up.
US Mobile is another one of our favorite options for seniors. We love US Mobile because of their awesome coverage and affordable plans.
US Mobile offers plans that range from $15 for 5GB, $30 for 30GB, and even a $45 unlimited data plan.
You can choose to use either the Verizon network or T-Mobile network for coverage
US Mobile’s beautiful website and a user-friendly application also make it easy for you to manage your account. You can purchase more minutes, texts, or data any time you need, and you can even manage multiple lines from a single account.
