The best phone for seniors! As good as you can hope for in a phone for seniors. Reminiscent of a cordless house phone — makes it easy to use for an 84-year-old. Buttons light up bright, ringtone volume is adjustable and on max it’s more than loud enough for anyone with a hearing problem; though surprisingly the call volume is not adjustable, though it is louder than the previous Verizon flip phone on max volume. I set this up with Cricket service. The phone takes a MINI SIM CARD. Not a micro as someone else has stated. I had to buy another sim card because the micro I ordered was too small. Mini sims are the original, large cards. We live in the US. I don’t know people are claiming this phone doesn’t work in the US. I paid 30ish for this phone, but would have paid up to 100 for it because of the design and functionality. Side note: I was concerned that my grandmother would always accidentally hit the SOS button this phone has, but it can be disabled in the settings.

GSM, unlocked, simple, ergonomic, oversized buttons, backlit, lightweight, great for seniors. Perfect, great, inexpensive phone for a senior. Bright, large, backlit numbers, clear controls, large number buttons, light weight, flash light, GSM.For what I paid, about $30, I almost wanted one for myself! Breath of fresh air after smart phones.Good battery life, I really lucked out choosing this and I might buy another one as a backup as my father tends to misplace things.I used it with GIV Mobile – unlimited talk/text and 200mb data for $20/month no contract.

I hated that other phone as it was very confusing for … I bought it for my mom who is in her late 70s after her other highest rated “senior” phone stopped working. I hated that other phone as it was very confusing for me to operate the menu functions. So I took a chance on this one despite some of the complaints I read about in the reviews.
