What makes this phone such a great choice?
Practical and Smart – For many of our customers a new phone can be confusing and a bit of a minefield. Many of our customers suffer from age-related health conditions like arthritis, memory loss and poor eyesight which make the process of navigating a smartphone difficult. Thus, it’s important to get your elderly relative a phone that is accessible and easy to use.
Big Button Phones – Unlike maybe 10-15 years ago many new phones do not come with buttons! Many older relatives and elderly citizens find a button-based system intuitive and easier to use. Small button phones can be tricky to use. Thus, this phone in situations like this can be a good option.
