Jitterbug Order Breakdown
Q. Is there a fee for activating a Jitterbug phone.
A. Yes there is, and it's a bit of a whopper. The activation fee is $35.00 though sometimes they offer free activation. Luckily, the price of the phone has dropped (for now) to $99. So after activation, shipping and taxes, the damage comes to about $150. The activation fee is refundable if you return the phone within 30 days - there is a restocking fee if the phone is not defective.
You also have to pick a calling plan, but that's not part of the one-time cost shown.
While the activation fee is a bit steep, the phone itself is worth it, especially with the price drop. Plus it also comes in red now!
