Look at Jitterbug, straight forward nothing fancy. Just a straight call and talk phone, low monthly fee and buy minutes as needed.
I have made calls from the mountains of PA to the boonocks of Montana.

Re: looking at Cell Phone Function BEFORE you buy

If you go to Best Buy, they sell different phones that you can look over and try out, they Sell Boost mobile, something for you to think about, Boost mobile has a better plan then tracfone. starts out at $50.00 a month & drops $5.00 a month after 4 months of on time payments till it gets down to $35.00 or if you go with the per day plan, it is $2.00 a day and the $2.00 only gets taken off your phone balance if you use it, if you do not use it in 1-24 hour period, it does not take $2.00 off your balance.

Both Plans are Unlimited Calling to basically ANYWHERE!

My Wife, Daughter & I had Verizon and got rid of it after a problem with a Phone that Verizon would not Fix, My Wife wanted the Tracfone, so she got 1, was putting minutes on it every time you turned around, where the kid and I went with Boost Mobile and were only putting money on ours once a month.

they have many different Phones to Choose from, 2 that I know of are nothing Fancy, just Flip phones!

I use Tracfone. I bought my phone at Dollar General for $15.00. It came with double minutes so anytime I buy minutes they are doubled. For $100.00 I got 1050 minutes and a year of airtime. I will have minutes left over when the year is up.
If you are going to use it for texting or internet you would better off with a different phone. I used to get good coverage with it. Now it does go into roaming a lot around here, when it didn't before. Roaming costs double.
