Jitterbug moves to Verizon network

Jitterbug, the prepaid cellular service catered towards the less technologically inclined, announced yesterday that they would be moving over to the Verizon network. This will be part of the Verizon open development initiative. The benefits for users, according to the press release, are better rates and more affordable night and weekend packages. Those haven’t appeared on Jitterbug’s website, but they should in due time. The transition of networks should take place over the next few months, though there’s nothing said about customers who have Jitterbug but don’t currently live in a Verizon coverage area (if there are any).
