Samsung Jitterbug jitters in a no-service area, recalls it

Samsung Jitterbug

 

Samsung and CPSC have initiated a recall of the a110 and a120 Jitterbug phones. The reason for the recall is that the phones are equipped with BB14 software and cannot connect to emergency 911 services when it’s in a no-service area. The recall affects Jitterbug phones sold from March 2008 through May 2009 and are eligible for a free software upgrade.

      Aw! This is very bad. How can this phone become capable to save life if it fails to connect to 911? Even though this only happens outside of the service areas, it still remains as a serious issue. Good thing my Dad is using the Just5 Easyphone. This is also a simple phone that has PERS features to secure the safety of the phone user and it is very much reliable. It has saved my Dad’s life before so I’m confident about that. Much more, this is very much affordable as well. He only spends $3.33 a month for the cheapest minute plan offered.
