The Best Cell Phone Plans for Seniors from Twigby

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-day 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 choose 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.


Build Your Custom Plan or Choose a Premade Plan

When choosing to build your custom plan, you select how many minutes and how much data you need. We have minute options starting as low as 300 minutes for $9 a month, or you could go all the way to unlimited minutes for $13 a month. One of Twigby customers’ favorite aspect of our plans is that unlimited texting is included with all calling plans for free. This also includes Unlimited Global Texting. Then, you select your data plan option. Something that makes Twigby unique is that we offer a No Data 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 1GB and 2GB plans seem to be our most popular choices.

If you’d like to choose from a premade plan instead, we offer 3GB, 5GB, and 10GB Smartphone Value Plans. Each plan comes with unlimited minutes and texting as well. Customers with iPhone or Android phones that know 3GB, 5GB, or 10GB is best for them, can save even more by opting for a Smartphone Value Plan.

Free Overage Protection

Another feature unique to Twigby is that we offer Overage Protection for FREE. With this, you can decide for yourself if you need more minutes or data. Simply turn it on to limit your usage to the plan you select. Or, leave it off and only spend more when you need more. And unlike other providers, we’ll still remind you via text message when you’re close to your initial plan choice threshold, helping you stay on budget.


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 1GB plan (for sending picture messages as we mentioned earlier) and the 2GB plan. According to this study from the Pew Research Center, 67% of adults in this age group go online regularly. 2GB 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 Wi-Fi signal for internet access rather than cellular data, making 1GB 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?

Smartphones might seem intimidating to the first-time user since there are more functions, but they are simple to get accustomed to! A smartphone will let you browse the web and download apps (you can see our list of suggested apps within our App Garden). Smartphones 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 30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee! Best of all, Twigby phones are listed at deeply discounted prices.
