Mobile technology powers the modern world with fast Internet and useful apps that you can access from your pocket. For young people who are networking every day, new smartphone features are essential for staying competitive. Seniors, on the other hand, tend to use their phones on an infrequent basis. People who did not grow up with technology often use cellphones for no more than placing simple calls. Some seniors text, but few seniors make use of social media or the latest apps.

When searching for a phone plan for a senior citizen, it is important to avoid paying for unnecessary services. If a senior only wants to place calls, for instance, signing a long-term agreement for a premium smartphone with a large data plan would waste a significant amount of money. You should strive to start with a plan that provides only the services that are necessary in your situation. If you find that additional services are needed in the future, leading carriers are, in general, happy to let you upgrade your contract.
