Finding a cell phone plan that fits your needs can be a tough obstacle to tackle. The mega carriers don’t understand that unlimited everything isn’t for every lifestyle. Other cell phone providers want you to pay a price per minute—it adds up quickly if you aren’t watching closely. Even worse, some plans are in 90- or 120-day cycles…they might as well follow phases of the moon. However, if you want plans that are customizable and easy to understand, you will find the best cell phone plans for seniors at Twigby.
How Twigby Plans Work
Twigby offers simply smarter phone service where you create a plan that fits you. And when you make the switch, you can say goodbye to those price-gouging activation fees and two-year contracts. You will get all this while keeping your current phone number.
Building Your Custom Plan
When creating your personalized Twigby plan, you will simply select the type of phone you will be using, whether it is a basic phone or a smartphone, and from there you will build your plan. You can select how many minutes you need, with options starting as low as 200 minutes for $9 a month, or you could go all the way to unlimited minutes for $15 a month. One of Twigby customers’ favorite aspect of our plans is that unlimited texting is included with all calling plans for free.
Next, you select your data plan option. Something that makes Twigby unique is that we offer a WiFi-only plan. Many other cell phone service providers require a data plan for all users. Why pay for something if you don’t want to use it? Keep in mind when making your selection that some data is required for sending picture messages. Our 500 MB and 1 GB plans seem to be our most popular choices.
Free Overage Protection
Another feature unique to Twigby is that we offer Overage Protection for FREE. Overage protection is the absolute safety net for those seniors that are interested in using data, but at the same time, are nervous about overage charges. With Twigby, you are in control of your plan, and if you don’t want to go over, you won’t. Simply turn Overage Protection on and you will never go over your monthly plan allotment. If you opt to leave Overage Protection off, no worries—you still won’t receive overage charges. You will simply be moved up to the next highest plan and be charged the difference between the two.
What are the best cell phone plans for seniors?
Only you can decide what’s best for yourself, and at Twigby, we won’t use any sly tricks to sell you a higher plan than you need. Among customers over the age of 64, our most popular calling plan is the 500-minute plan. This seems to be a perfect amount for people who want or need a phone to keep caught up with friends and family.
For data, most customers in this age range opt for the 500 MB plan (for sending picture messages as we mentioned earlier) and the 1 GB plan. According to this study from the Pew Research Center, 67% of adults in this age group go online regularly. 1 GB of data gives you the freedom to check things online without paying for more than you plan on using. And remember, all smartphones give you the option of using your home WiFi signal for internet access rather than cellular data, making 500 MB our most popular starting point.
Still not sure which one is the best option for you? You can start small. Since Twigby does not charge for overages, and simply moves you to the next plan, you can try out the smallest plan (with Overage Protection turned off) and at the end of the month see how much you used.
Which cell phone is right for you?
At Twigby, we offer many different types of phones from a basic feature phone to the most popular smartphones and everything in between. Feature phones are great for those who only want to make phone calls and send text messages. These phones have more simple functions, and they typically have larger buttons.
Smart phones might seem intimidating to the first-time user since there are more functions, but they are simple to get accustomed to! A smart phone will let you browse the web and download apps (you can see our list of suggested apps within our App Garden). Smart phones also give you the ability to capture high quality photos and video. In addition to this, smartphones can be customized more so than feature phones.
We also have a great selection of certified and new phones. Our certified pre-owned phones are only the highest quality. They go through extreme rounds of internal testing before we ever sell them to you. Rest assured knowing you’ll get only the best from Twigby! If you’re unsure about buying a pre-owned phone, read more about why certified pre-owned phones are a good option. New phones are just as they sound, never used and backed by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee! Best of all, Twigby phones are listed at discounted prices and all customers are given a free shipping option.
