With plans starting at $11 per month, Snapfon is one of the most affordable cellular providers available. They allow you to build your own service agreement with minutes, messages, and data, and regardless of the plan you choose, they never require long-term contracts.
In addition to low prices, they are one of the few providers to offer 5G coverage. But how does this all perform? Let’s take a closer look.
No long-term contracts: All Snapfon cellular plans work on a month-to-month basis, meaning you won’t have to lock into any binding contracts with hidden cancellation fees.
No unlimited data: Snapfon does not offer any plans with unlimited data, meaning your data speeds will be slowed after you reach your monthly allowance. If you’re looking for affordable unlimited plans, we’d recommend checking out our rundowns of Verizon senior plans and T-Mobile senior plans.

Snapfon Plans for Seniors
Currently, Snapfon does not offer a specific plan or discount for older adults; however, we think their basic plan of 100 minutes and 100 texts is ideal for those who have an existing landline and only need a cell phone for emergencies. Alternatively, their basic unlimited minutes and texts plan is a great option for those who don’t need their phone for internet usage.
To purchase a phone and plan from Snapfon, we’d recommend checking out their website. There, you can take a look at each of their phones and build your own plan in terms of minutes, messages and data.
Once you’ve chosen a plan, you have the option of either keeping your existing phone or purchasing one of Snapfon’s devices.
One of our favorite devices from Snapfon is their ez4G. This simple phone costs only $33.95 when you purchase a Snapfon plan with it. In addition to being hearing aid-compatible, this phone features large buttons, Wi-Fi, and a camera.
A bit more advanced than the ez4G, the ezFlip features a classic flip phone design. It’s also hearing aid-compatible, supports Wi-Fi calling, and even features built-in fall detection. It’s one of our picks for the best flip phone for seniors. It currently costs $33.95 when you also purchase a Snapfon cellular plan.
Snapfon Starter Kit
If you wish to keep your own phone, you can opt to pay $0.99 for a Snapfon starter kit. This includes a SIM card that you can simply pop into your existing phone to begin using your Snapfon service.
Did You Know: If you want to just purchase a Snapfon SIM card, then you’ll need an unlocked phone. Read our guide to the best unlocked phones for seniors to learn more.
Snapfon sosPlus Plans
In addition to offering traditional cellular service, Snapfon offers its sosPlus mobile monitoring service. For $19.99 per month, this service turns your phone into a medical alert system, giving you quick access to trained monitoring agents who can provide assistance in the event of an emergency.
While data usage can quickly get costly with Snapfon, we think they’re one of the best providers out there for affordable cellular service. What’s more, they don’t hit you with overage charges in the event you exceed your monthly limits; rather, they’ll simply upgrade you to the next plan tier.
