Pay as you go Mobile with big buttons for pensioner - cheap !

Found 10th Jan 2007
My father in law needs a new mobile phone , the last one he had was ancient with big buttons and he really liked it. We tried giving him a replacement phone but he finds most phones too small and hard to work. He hardly uses it (£10 credit lasts him months ) but does need one as he does cancer care driving ,and needs to contact us. We have some pay as you go sims , he was with virgin but we want to change him to 02. So can anyone suggest a cheap pay as you go phone that is pensioner friendiy 7 maybe sim free ( not essentially but would need to be 02 or virgin if not sim free ). Many thanks !

if you look on virgins site, they used to sell a basic nokia (no camera ect)
very cheap,

they have a nokia 1112 for £29.99 which includes a £15 airtime voucher:

After something that's easy to use and looks the part? Then grab the Pay As You Go Nokia 1112. There's everything you'd expect from a Nokia - great battery life, simple menus and instructions, and it's great for texting too. Plus there are cool extras like games, an alarm clock and handsfree speaker.


Or try Argos, there were a few cheapy pay as you go mobiles in their clearance, not sure if they were o2 or virgin tho
Many thanks for your reply. I will have a look at your suggestions. It doesnt need to look good just as long as he can phone home !
