    My parents struggle with the modern mobiles so wanted an easy to see, easy to use phone. They are genuinely enthusiastic about this purchase which they find easy to follow. They are also pleased that they can receive a text but they don't have to send.
    Buy a sim card and a five or ten pound credit to accompany this and for the more senior person this is an ideal mobile.

    I bought one of these for my mother. She suffers from Parkinsons Disease, which has left her with limited mobility in her fingers and reduced vision.
    My (ie her) requirements from a phone are therefore a clear screen, and distinct, easy-to-use buttons. This phone mostly meets those criteria, although the main menu system is quite poorly designed (why didn't they just copy the old-style Nokia menu system that everyone used for years?).
    My only real complaint is that the main menus are activated by a small, hard-to-press button on the side of the phone. Why? It's a poor design decision that defeats the object of this phone.
    Overall, this phone gets three out of five from me. A good start but, as they used to say in school, "could do better".

    The biggest reason for me selecting this phone was the "A","B","C" programmable buttons and the very big green / red buttons.

    My mother is in a care home with limited mobility but a reasonably active brain however she was becoming more and more confused with her old mobile and the "fiddly" buttons, not least of which her amazing ability to hit the end call button to answer calls, not helpful when she's 150 miles away.

    She now seems very confident and happy. By pressing "A" she calls me, by pressing "B", her husband and she always seems to answer the phone when we call now, something that was hit and miss with her old phone. She also finds it easy to hold for a lot longer when talking and it's been a terrific purchase to meet our needs.

    The phone came with a drop in cradle charger which is also very useful but I don't think it was mentioned in the blurb. All in all excellent value for money if you want a very simple mobile that makes phone calls.

    Utterly delighted with design and features of this mobile phone. Clear big font is such a relief when eyesight challenged. Big buttons and clear layout of controls engender confidence. Excellent service from DST via Amazon. also able to grasp hold of handset without fear of it slipping from hand. Not over bulky but feels substantial. The emergency contact feature could also bring peace of mind to relatives and mobile owner.

    Very easy to see and use. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. Very useful long strap so it could be hung around neck or attached to handle of a bag easily. Re-charge cradle is very easy for elderly person to use as you dont have to fiddle with small connection.
    All in all a great phone for people with low dexterity or poor eye sight.

    We bought this phone for my 90 year old mother-in-law who was finding her current mobile phone was too small to read the screen, had buttons too small to press easily, and generally was a little too over-complicated. We chose this model because of its stated battery life. Although it comes with a charging cradle, she is quite likely to forget to replace it there, so we wanted a phone that would have a standby time of at least 7-10 days in case of long gaps between her getting family visitors. So far this model has lasted that length of time with battery life to spare.
    There are three quick dial buttons for stored numbers, and the phone can have up to 30 numbers in its directory. It does not appear to be able to use the SIM to store additional numbers, which did mean we could not simply export numbers from her own phone to this one. The Emergency button could be useful feature for many people, although we have left it disabled. When the button is pressed, the phone goes into loud speaker mode, then calls each of the three quick dial stored numbers in turn, until one answers.
    The phone is a good size, so easy to handle, and its display is very clear and easy to read. The phone will receive text messages, but cannot send texts.
    The price seems expensive for what it is, at least when compared with mass-produced basic mobile phones, but when one considers that the market for models such as this is relatively small once can understand why it costs what it does. When we bought ours there was a large spread of prices for this phone in the market, but the lower price deals had long delivery times.Doro 338GSM Easy to Use Sim Free Mobile Phone - White

    Don't buy this 'phone. It's expensive, poorly designed, functionally sparse and arguably unfit for purpose.

    The first revelation was that the battery charge indication is the exact opposite of most other mobile 'phones I have seen, including other models in the Doro range. It directly contradicts the information in the user-manual. The battery appears to be flat when it is in fact fully charged. I therefore returned the first 'phone I received in the belief that it had a defective battery. When the replacement proved to be exactly the same I rang Doro, to be told that the user manual did not actually relate to the 338 gsm but to another model in the Doro range. My suggestion - that at least an addendum should be included with both the printed and on-line versions of the manual, to correct erroneous information - was met with indifference. "The 338 gsm is obsolete and out of production. We don't intend to do any more with it," came the reply.

    I bought the 'phone for my wife, who is partially sighted. She cannot read the screen and has to find the keys mainly by feel, largely relying on the 'A', 'B' and 'C' speed-dial buttons, which I programmed for her. On her first time out with the 'phone, she found herself unable to speed-dial me and was left stranded. No one she asked, including young mobile 'phone-savvy shop assistants could help her. When I subsequently examined the 'phone, having earlier successfully demonstrated the use of all three speed-dial keys, I found that each of the stored numbers had been erased or overwritten with spurious characters, so I re-entered them. Three days later, the problem recurred. I have yet to work out exactly what happened but soon found that the speed-dial keys are booby-trapped.
