Features for Seniors
Sprint’s senior phone offer has several key features and benefits to offer those over the age of 55. The phone plan is designed to be easy to use and overall straightforward. Take a look at some of the key features you can expect from this company.
Unlimited Talk, Text, and Data
Seniors are active on their phones, in more ways than ever. With unlimited talk, text, and data, you can remain connected all of the time. As an unlimited plan, users do not have to worry about limits on how many calls they send or how many text messages they create. What’s more, unlimited data allows for ample opportunity to use your cell phone for any need you have. For those who are looking for an affordable way to have internet access all of the time, this option works well.
Another key feature from Sprint is its ability to be used no matter where you go. Unlike other phones that offer limited access while traveling, or charge high fees for doing so, Sprint keeps things very simple and straightforward. It offers travel access that is worry-free. You can stay connected while you are traveling across 200 locations. Global Roaming, as the feature is called, is easy enough to activate, too. This way, you can travel every year during your retirement, sell the world, and still stay in touch with your family back home.
Specifically, calling to low-cost service areas (of which there are 185) using basic data roaming of no more than 2G speeds, as well as SMS texting is no extra charge. If you choose to make voice calls, it is .30 per minute. You can call international family members and friends affordably, too.
With unlimited data comes the ability to stream movies, videos, and music on your devices. No matter where you are, you can use your Sprint device to watch videos and movies. The quality is good – the company promises DVD-quality. That tends to be fast enough to display images without any lag. Do you have a long doctor’s appointment – watch a movie. Catch videos of the kids and grandkids on your back porch, all with your cell phone.
Mobile Hotspot Connectivity
Many seniors are busy people who need to be on the go. If this sounds like you, having internet connectivity can be critical. With this plan, you gain access to unlimited Mobile Hotspot. That means you can take your data with you wherever you go. For example, you can turn on your hotspot to get in some work on your laptop, perhaps in the garden or at a coffee shop. You may also find yourself in need of a hotspot as a backup. If your home’s internet connectivity goes down, you can turn on your phone’s hotspot so you can still stream movies or use your computer.
