New Special Needs Cell Phone

A new cell phone for people with disabilities has joined the line up of special needs phones. Like the Jitterbug, the Clarity Life is simplified, with large and clear buttons and text and is amplified for those with hearing loss (I might be getting my dad one of these for Christmas, I am sick of being told I am mumbling when the only time it happens is talking to him.) with a strong vibration and strobe effects as alternative alerting methods.

Unlike the Jitterbug the Clarity Life is unlocked, meaning you can use it with a SIM card from any company (i.e. AT&T or T-Mobile, not Verizon though). There aren't any numbers on the keypad though, the phone book must be pre-programmed and then you go through the address book with the arrow keys.

The Clarity runs for just under $300.00.


  1. My special needs daughter does not have a physical handicap, but is mentally handicapped. Unfortunately she does not have the self-control or ability to make good safe choices when it comes to cell phone use. I had a very hard time finding a cell phone provider who had excellent parental controls where I could control incoming and outgoing calls/texts from her phone. I finally found Kajeet. Their on-line parental control application is easy to use. I am able to input the phone numbers ONLY that I want her to receive and send calls to/from. Now she can get in touch with us anytime and visa versa. Kajeet also has GPS along with numerous other features you can place on the phone depending on your personal needs. Be sure to check out Kajeet and if you use this link, you get a 15% discount on the phone www.kajeet.com/172
