I've seen my dad use it and its very simple. The instructions explain everything.

Looks good

Not convinced. Tesco and Poundstrechers do a similar phone and have done for some time @ £20 (started off on offer for £9.99 @ Tesco iirc), allbeit without the FM radio and torch, but considering the demographic this is aimed at hardly a deal breaker.

I almost bought Mum one, but concluded the single line display would make texting a pain for her, so stuck with an el'cheapo Nokia.

echo the above - cold - local book clearance place (publisher outlet?) has a v similar one for a £10.... the premise being its easy to use and is a phone so the other functions are largely moot.

25 on eBay sometimes cheaper.

These are good for calls only but not any good for text (useless display)

My dad has just gone from a Nokia 3210 to an iPhone, what a leap!... but he loves it, with all 45 of his Dolly Parton, Buddy Holly.... songs on it!

Hot, if you want a basic phone whist out and about. A mate of mine smashed his iphone whilst climbing kast week, bet he wishes he had one of these.

How much is delivery to a house op?

That one doesn't have a charger included, adding another £5

I've used a Maxi-Key phone one since January - I can see the keys clearly and it survived a couple of drops in the garden so its quite robust. The battery lasts for ages. The same company also has another phone aspect-two.com/p-k…004 which it describes as having a zinc-alloy case which is stronger still.
The site also mentions a large print manual, none of the others seem to supply this.

Are they slobber proof too?

Would have been hotter if it had one of these on:

Yes it does.

The charger mentioned in the bc5i price is USB to PC. Like many my age we prefer to keep things simple and have a proper charger so it would be £5 more for me.
I also suspect the price reflects the build quality as I used a similar model last year. The keypad wasn't easy to use, it had no feel. That was one reason I bought the Aspect Two Maxi-Key

I bought my dear old mother one of the BC5i phones from MyMemory last week.

Although the charger cable is a USB type cable it did actually come with a wall charger for it to plug into (contrary to some reviews I've read) - the charger was in the sealed box with the phone.

Looks like the manufacturer listened to feedback from customers........now theres a novelty :-)

No offence to your mom, but she reminded me of a story I once heard;

A blind man was seen waiting at a street corner with his guide dog. After a short wait the dog started leading the blind man across the street against the red light.

First a car comes screeching to a halt inches away from him, but still the dog leads on, then a bicyclist almost wipes them out and curses as he goes by. Finally in the last lane a truck swerves and barely misses them. 

After they reach the far corner the blind man reaches in his pocket and pulls out a cookie and offers it to the guide dog. At this point another person who has watched the entire episode interrupts asking why he was rewarding the dog after the dog had endangered his life and almost got him run over by a car, bicycle and truck. 

The blind man responded: "I'm not rewarding him, I'm just trying to find out which end is his head so I can kick him in the *ss"

I got my 90 year old grandad one of these.
Bless him, he does give it a try,

But it a bit of a dismal phone.
Menus are complicated and if you get it to a wrong place
or press too many odd button then it gets messed up.
It's also crashed a couple of times.
There no need for some of the features like the radio.
They could have simplified it even more.,

Good point is that it has a big SOS button on the back.
You can programme to dial any number you like and it automatcially plays a loud help message through the speakers to alert passers by that something is up.
Who needs those pendants for old people which cost £20 a month when you can have one of these and programme it to dial what you wish.

I think for this feature alone it's probably worth £22.99
But using it a phone could be a bit of a struggle, whereas a cheap Nokia they can pick up and use instantly.

Too expensive. minus one degree please
