Noticed the name in ebuyers small print

Cheap phone for calls, texting is not very good due to the screen having very large letters (up to 7 digits on screen at a time)

This mobile phone is the perfect representation of the old style push button land line home telephone. Just like the bog standard landland telephone the mobile mimics its simplicity.Perfect for those who just make and take telephone calls away from home even in dim or bright lighting conditions or even when drunk.
Anyone who wants HDMI, 1080p, iTunes, WAP, 52" screen, wifi, media server, uPNP, fax, 1TB storage can try Nokia , Sony or Apple Mac or even go down to your local Lidl.

horrible, HORRIBLE phone.

not even easy to use which is supposed to be its selling point. Better off with a b+w Nokia if you're looking for that sorta thing....

Even though its simple it is not intuitive and is awful to use.
Forget texting on it - you only see 7 characters at once. Its a shame as it looks nice.

Any other cheap phone is better than this.

So many people miss the point with this phone and so many people who say its rubbish have never actually used one. Im not saying you havent got one jamesfitzpatrick but if your using it for an emergency phone its not one for texting as the font is to big and there is a reason for that its really just for calls.

They are simple and thats it christ it even talks to you to tell you what options you are on.

These are made for the sub continent and are actually very good phones and are adaptable for heat and have a great screen which can been seen perfectly even it pointed into direct noon sunlight. You can stick this in ya car it will get hot and still work, put ta nokia in at those temeratures and it probalby wont.

These are FANTASTIC phones for the ELDERLY!

They have a large simple black/white screen which has a hugh font great for people with poor eye sight.

They they are so light and small and slim put a neck strap on it and pensioners can wear it every where round the house where ever they go.

My Gran has one and she is anti mobile phone until I gave her this one to have round her near and now she feels secure and safe. She lives alone and is really stubbern and now if she has a fall and cant get up all she has to do is press one of the speed dials and shes in touch with any of the family, she wears hers 24/7

Speakerphone. Says it all, great for my gran when she has used it doesnt even have to put it to her ear and the speakerphone is very clear.

Amazing battery life, ive clocked it myself testing it first straight 10 days without having to recharge.

The Keypad lights up again great if my gran falls when its dark.

All it can do it make calls, text and tell you the time and date and thats it, brilliantly simple in execution, nothing complicated to make pensioners or the elderly phobic of mobile phones.

Now this phone also talks to you it tells you what option you are one and this does really help the elderly who dont know what Icon they are currently on.

These phones are amazing for people who are after a simple phone and no bells and whistles.

Terrible phones! I bought 2 last christmas for my grandparents as they were advertised as being elderly friendly and they have had nothing but problems with them mainly:

[LIST]
[*]Really short battery life (last less than a day on standby)


[*]Terrible for texting (large words get broken down over multiple screens)


[*]The ringtone volume selection is too easy for them to change accidently and they quite often put the phone onto silent or vibrate by mistake, or even worse ring and vibrate, the phone will vibrate first for 20 seconds or so and then ring, by which time they have missed the call. As the volume setting is not part of the "menu" however they cannot set it back themselves (you have to do a combination of directional arrows to change it)


[*]The phones loose time, generally around 15 minutes per day so if you set the phone to 12am and leave it for 24 hours, it will show 11.45, this is on both handsets.


[*]The phonebook display again has a large text but again suffers the same problem as the text messages, so say you have RICHARD MOBILE and RICHARD HOME as enteries in the phone book they both appear as RICHAR which means you have to scroll to the right on each line to find out which entry it is, again a difficult concept for them to understand especially as their old Nokia phones displayed the whole name.

[/LIST]

The good stuff, they talk to you which made some things such as finding the option to read text messages easier for them, not that they could read them once they had found the option.

Exact opposite to my 87 year old gran monther is extremly happy with hers, it dont lose time and she is still only charging it every 8 days even after a year, its never lost time. If your battery losing charge then its faulty.

The font is purposely big and you would habe to scroll but who put full names ? RICH M & RICH H would do ??, trying to explain a phonebook to an 87 year old still with all her marbles and isnt into technology just tell her the speed dials, my nan has the on the back of the phone just in case she want to ring a specific, but her speed dials go down in priority as the numbers go up simple.

My nan will never have a problem with texting, ring tones or phone books she dont need them just lock/unlock/speed dial/done!
