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

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...
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...
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?
The phone was definitely easier for our 93 year old mom to use, however, the phone was faulty and would only vibrate. Returning

Summary: The phone was definitely easier for our 93 year old with macular degeneration to use, however, the phone was faulty and would only vibrate. Returning it and looking forward to a working unit soon.
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.
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.
Summary: Worked great for a year, but then just up-and-died. This was cheaper than a jitterbug (and capable of using pay-as you go) but we wound up buying the jitterbug anyway because this just died on us.
Beware: It's dual-band gsm phone working only in 850/1900

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.
Summary: I bought this for my sister who has limited vision. It is of poor quality and it does not have a speaker phone. Even though it has big numbers the display is hard to see because of the digital display color.It was loud enough but it has very low reception, it would constantly drop the calls.
