How it Works
Just5 offers mobile phones that are designed for audiences that require five basic features: ease of operation, big buttons, amplified sound, a long-lasting battery for reliability, and an emergency SOS button. Primary target audiences include seniors, people with poor eyesight or hearing problems, people with medical conditions that require constant care, and kids who need a “starter phone” with basic functionality.
Just5’s phones provide large buttons to simplify calling and texting; a digital display for more accurate dialing and texting; a high-volume speaker with amplified sound up to 100dB; a physical switch on the side of the phone to lock and unlock the keypad; an FM radio for convenient listening without a headset; and a handy flashlight and also a speaking keypad.
For emergency situations, users can preset up to five phone numbers for 911, family, friends, doctors, etc. When users press the emergency SOS button, the phone will text an urgent message (e.g. “I’m having an emergency, please answer”) to these five numbers, then dial them in prioritized order. When dialing, the phone will sound a loud siren to attract the attention of others. Once someone answers a call, the phone automatically switches to loud speaker mode for easier communications. This feature is vital if a user drops the phone after pressing the SOS button.
