Samsung Haven; A Good Phone for Old Timers that still like to talk
4 March 2014
Summary: The Samsung Haven is a great phone for older people that only need to talk on the phone and text from time to time. Easy to use and uncomplicated with limited options. Large easy to read text and large buttons as well as audible message alerts and voice activated commands make it ideal for seniors and basic users alike. Very basic tools include Calendar, Alarm Clock, and Calculator. Basic accessories include speaker phone, and wired ear-piece. No data or Web capability.
Summary: This phone is NOT compatible with Verizon Backup Assistant software, so be prepared to spend some time re-entering your contacts. Otherwise it works great for the senior it was purchased for: big buttons and screen, easy menus.
Not for my 93 year old mother. Buttons not good for her to use.

Summary: I bought this for my 93 year old mother. She does have a difficult time getting into the directory because of arthritus in her fingers. It is very easy for her to bump th e911 button. I thought it would be good for her because of the bigger display but the buttons are just not big enough or the shape isn't right for her to use comfortably. I had a razor for her before & she had no problems with the buttons on that, but the screen went blank.
