    Can anyone recommend a good simple mobile phone for older person to send text messages?

    Hi,

    Wondering if anyone can make any recommendations. My dad wants a new mobile. He currently uses a Nokia 3330, which is years old. He only needs to be able to send text messages and make calls.

    Things that are needed :

    When sending a message it must be able to tell you how many letters are left before the message becomes 2 messages (double cost) - MOST IMPORTANT, he's very fussy about being able to do this. He's tried a few other phones but rejected them as they don't do this, & unfortunately no phone description mentions whether they do this or not.

    Must be able to turn off predictive text

    It needs to be simple to use without an overload of functions

    Must work on orange

    Must have a screen which is easy to read things

    Colour screen

    Guessing a Nokia would be best as there would be more similarities to his old phone?

    Thanks for any help!

    Thanks for that, I'll have a look into those.

    My mom's got a Nokia 6300 - she likes the size of the screen - can read it without putting her specs on.

    Thankyou, but looks a bit too expensive, at £70ish. Hoping to find something closer to £20-£40.

    Nokia 6230, there are some ok deals on it around the £20 mark and it gets good reviews for a basic handset, buying one for my grandad for xmas
