GreatCall, creator of the Jitterbug cell phone, and Verizon Wireless today announced that GreatCall's Jitterbug will now run on the Verizon Wireless network through Verizon's open development program.
Jitterbug monthly services now offer more minutes and more affordable night and weekend calling than were previously available with Jitterbug plans. Customers also will benefit from ongoing wireless technology advances as Verizon Wireless invests billions of dollars every year to further extend its network reliability lead over other wireless providers. Jitterbug?s relationships with Verizon Wireless and Samsung, providing best-in-class mobile phone service and handsets, enable it to focus on launching new targeted wireless services that are simple and intuitive for customers to adopt and enjoy.
In a rapidly changing wireless industry, Jitterbug has created a simple-to-use cell phone that delivers the basics and makes it easy to stay in touch with friends and family. Jitterbug continues to build on that platform, providing their customers with a ?Services Store? that has a collection of easy-to-use applications that are backed by outstanding, friendly customer support.
Verizon Wireless? open development program is driven by the company?s goal of encouraging innovation, providing new wireless choices, and expanding the wireless market. The company continues to provide full-service offerings for business and consumer customers.
