Summary: I wanted a simple phone to make calls, text, have a camera & a diary. This suits my needs exactly. I like the flip top action which protects the keyboard. I like the big letters & numbers. It has an ICE emergency feature which I think is great. It also has a good radio which is a bonus. I'd recommend this phone to anyone who wants a straightforward simple mobile.
Summary: Big buttons, easy to read, sound quality Is good, ideal for someone who wants a basic phone without. All the other things they have on it these days which half the time you don't use anyway. Especially useful for the elderly.
Summary: I purchased this for my Mum, and I have to say it is superb. I use the latest smart phoned and honestly I could easily use this myself as a main phone if I needed to. The phone is ideal for people who might have difficulty with their hearing and or eyesight or both, and also want an extremely easy to use phone. The operation is very tidy and easy and if you are use to a different make of phone the transition of learning this device is seamless.
Good phone for someone legally blind - but need a plan to match!
4 September 2013
Excerpt: Looked for (literally) years for a mobile phone my legally blind mother can learn how to use without getting frustrated and giving up. Sure this has some features she can't use like texting and for hard-of-hearing but lots of other people who need big keys would love those too. My most ideal would be a mobile phone with no screen and more buttons but noone seems to have realised there is a niche (but sizeable) market crying out for this.
Summary: I bought an similar model for my elderly mother and she loved it, being in her 80s I was concerned but she took to it right away so I decided to invest in one for myself as my eyesight is also failing and with the big buttons and screen it's great, on time and no problems.
Excerpt: We bought this phone for my husband who just wanted a basic phone and got frustrated with technology. He finds this very easy to read, simple to set up and has been using it much more than any previous phone. He has even gone back to texting which he gave up in frustration on previous phones. Would recommend this for anyone who just wants to make calls, send and receive texts and take an occasional photo.
Summary: I'd just like to say about Joe Hanlon that he is such a great reviewer. Being a techno dim-wit, I really appreciate how he makes things undestandable for the oldies. Thanks so much Joe. Best...
Summary: A fine product for any one who justs wants a mobil phone and text facility. The camera is always being used. The user was sceptical about price but feed back was good. Needs a car charger though and they seem to be out of stock.
