Too easy to accidentally push buttons when picking up and power port too small.

Steven L. Gear, Amazon
13 August 2014
  • Summary: Not sure why everyone loves this phone. I purchased it for my elderly grandmother to use in case of emergencies. The buttons are so sensitive you hit them accidentally every time you pick up the phone and this confused her as she didn't understand why it kept beeping and certain options were turned on or off when she would pick it up. The phone looks big in the picture, but actually the buttons are very large for the phone size but it is too small.

Used?

carolina, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for my grandmother and the phone had real contacts stored in it already when we turned it on even though it appears and sold as new. My grandmother still kept it because she wanted it, but I thought that was a bit odd and felt like I should have been charged less if it wasn't actually a new phone.

Good Phone, But, .......

John C. "ProMariner", Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: 4/8/2014 Update .... This phone is NOT SUITED FOR THE SIGHT IMPARED. If this phone was designed for the elderly, why would they put the smallest charging jack possible on the bottom of this phone? If the person using this phone has good eyesight it may be a good phone, but for the sight impared, it's just as difficult to operate as any cellphone. I was searching for an easy to use phone for my Mom who has macular degeneration and is legally blind.

not for low vision

  • Summary: It is a good phone. The problem is the numbers are not easy to read. They should have greater contrast. This is not good for a low vision person.

Not what it says it is

Jackie G. Hicks "Jappy", Amazon
5 May 2013
  • Summary: This phone does have big numbers & keys, but its not really any easier to use than any other one I've ever had. I bought it for my Mom (86) & it was pretty difficult for her to learn to use. It looks & feels like a cheap kids toy. I wouldn't recommend it. I give 2 stars for big buttons & numbers.

Okay, but not great.

mcbooks001, Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this phone for my grandmother, but ended up selling it. She kept ending calls accidentally because the buttons are too close to the sides of the phone and it's tricky to hold correctly. Also, the phone numbers would not sort correctly. They would come up in groups like: Adam Andrew Beth Charlie . . . Andrea Ben Christine . . . I would recommend this phone as a child's phone (to contact mom and dad or a couple friends), but not as a phone for seniors.

Beware: It's dual-band gsm phone working only in 850/1900

indiauser, Amazon
22 November 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this for my elderly mom back in India and in the technical specification there was no mention of dual-band that works only where 850/1900 frequencies are supported which is mostly in American continent. Most other continents use 900/1800 frequency hence this phone doesn't work where 850/1900 is not supported(including India and most countries outside american continent).
