My mom's looking for a nice back-up phone. Very little usage (some calls, maybe text; no internet needed). So we're thinking of the pay-as-you-go option. But she likes the simplicity of the Jitterbugs (some friends have them) and would only need their flip phone, price and feature wise.

Could she get one of those and use it with T-mobile?

I did a small bit of searching online and found someone with this issue where he claimed that the Jitterbug CDMA phone didn't work with the TM service. But I thought I'd ask here, since that was only one person's story. Does anyone here have experience with this combination?
