Need advice on a new mobile phone

I am hoping that someone on here can help me, I am looking to buy my mum a new mobile phone for christmas, she already has a phone but she cannot hear it ring when its in her bag so a phone which is not quiet would be great, she is on vodafone pay as you go, I have about £50-60, and also she isnt very good with any touch screen phones, I have looked at some phones at the reviews and a lot either say that they are quiet or very sensitive touch screen so i am lost and do not know what to get her, any help would be fantastic.
Thankyou

samsung j700 is quite a good one
the ring tone is quite loud considering my mum (partially deaf) ask me to tone down the volume even though in her bag.

Go for a Nokia or a Sony Ericsson, they are usually the loudest...

If its for your mum Nokia's are the easiest to use, Sony Ericssons are usually the loudest... The SE W350 is a decent phone however if your mum hasnt used a SE before it may be a little awkward to get used to, for cheap Nokia's I would recommend a 2630, its a basic bluetooth phone, very easy to use and should be in the price range...

Samsungs have never been known for their sound quality or for their loudness, lol they cant even ring and vibrate at the same time :)

Nokia - Ease of use, all the standard features packed into a reliable phone, everything is normally repairable and spare parts are always available.
Sony Ericsson - Great for music, sound quality, build quality ok, user interface is a little more awkward
Samsung - Pretty phones, expensive replacement parts
LG - Pretty phones, however not the greatest

Motorola - Still trying to improve their only popular phone the V3
Siemens - lol...
Alcatel - lol
VK Mobile - lol

If you buy one of the last 3, you dont love your mum, lol :)
