Our article on the best cell phones for seniors have attracted some interest so I decided to post another featured post for our elderly readers. This time we'll look at the mobile phone plans for seniors that are available on the market. I will post information on plans that are specially marketed towards the elderly. I will also include plans that I feel are suitable to the needs of senior citizens even if they might not be specifically targeted towards consumers who are 65 years old or older.
Here are some of the best cell phone plans for senior citizens:
