If the green key and then the middle key with the two white arrows are pressed the phone's menu appears on screen. Scrolling with arrow keys you'll find Phones Settings, SMS, and Calender etc. Mum has learnt how to text, the letters are slightly smaller than the number keys; nevertheless fills about half the screen. By pressing the # key the dictionary can be turned off, mum prefers to create text using the single letter process. Yes, the instructions can be awkward; however sheis having fun learning how to use her new phone. She does not need internet or camera and prefers the traditional way of communicating and taking pictures.
My major problem with this phone is the USB charger. Amazon did not make it clear when I was buying the phone that this product did not include a regular plug charger and that you would need a computer to charge the phone. I would imagine that this phone would appeal to seniors who may not have access to a pc. This point needs to be made very clear. I sent an email to Amazon asking for a plug charger but received an email from the supplier (My Memory) that it only comes with a USB charger and they apologised for any confusion caused. Not sure if I would have bought the phone if I had known this at the time.
This is such a good value phone,
