Product Description

Product Description

With today’s fast paced lifestyle we are all expected to get used to the latest and greatest technology. The guys at TTfone decided to take it in the opposite direction and bring technology back to the start, making things simple and easy to use. TTfone’s range of mobile phones have some common features like large buttons, clear large displays, some models offer a monochrome display which is much easier to see than the conventional LCD screens in modern phones. They also have Loud volume so are great for anyone with hearing difficulties. Smartphone too smart? Then TTfone will have a model for you.
The TTfone Mercury is the perfect phone for those who need a simple to use mobile phone with large buttons and loud volume. Wonderful holiday gift for mum, dad or grandparents!
With a One-touch SOS emergency help button and FM Radio it also features talking buttons for those who find it difficult to see. Enjoy clearer conversations thanks to good sound quality and loud volume.
Our phones have very clear displays with large characters that are easier to distinguish. The Mercury has a monochrome display which is much easier to view than the modern colour screens .
What is an SOS Emergency Button?
The little button on the back of the phone can be a life saver, simply press and hold down the SOS button and the phone will sound a loud siren to alert others nearby that there is an emergency. The phone will then begin to send an emergency text message (eg "I need help please call me") to five stored numbers of family, friends doctors etc. After text messages are sent it will then start to call the numbers one by one till someone picks up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exc Value 31 May 2010
Colour Name:Black
I bought this for my elderly inlaws so that when they are having hospital, dentist appointments etc they can call a taxi or arrange transport. It is perfect and very good value for money.
However just one little niggle-it is quite clear that this is an import from probably S.E.Asia and the instructions that came with it are not much use.The fact that they are written in very,very small print doesn't help either.(considering it is a 'Big Button' phone for the older person who has difficulty reading a normal mobiles' numbers)I had difficulty myself reading the instructions as did my daughter. I had to print out an 'instruction' sheet for my inlaws in case they needed to change or add anything.
I suggest that the retailers might take this on board in future. Not all older citizens have someone who can sort that out for them.
That aside it does what it says-a perfect mobile for the older generation who are not into gizmos and gadgets!

4.0 out of 5 stars Like a love affair 20 Sep 2010
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I love my Senior Phone, but I only give it four stars, because, like a real love affair, it has its moments.
What do I love? I can see the buttons. I'm 52, short-sighted and increasingly long-sighted too, so I need two pairs of specs. The tiny buttons on the more usual phones were next to useless.
It doesn't have millions of functions. It calls, and it texts. This is cool, as I have a camera, and I don't believe in MP3 players for writers.
It is simple to use. You just press the big buttons, and presto! The menus are easy to understand, and I can read txts without swopping glasses.
I can hear it when it rings. So can people in the next country.
It looks oddly hip. People gather round and want to look at it. It isn't branded. I like unbranded things on principle. I have no idea at all who made the thing, and I advertise it because it's good, not because it's covered in logos.
I've even used the torch thingy, and it's easy to lock the keyboard, because there's a switch on the side.
But, the radio doesn't want to work, the SOS function apparently doesn't work at all, and the instructions were written in teeny tiny writing, which is a bit dumb for those with less than perfect eyesight. But at the price, you can't go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Button Mobile Phone 22 Nov 2010
Colour Name:Black
All fantastic. My research for such a wanted mobile phone found this item exactly what I wanted. (ie. being 70 years of age with failing eyesight and hearing.) This phone having only what was needed for me without gimmicks. The service was excellent with the phone being dispatched and received within the stipulated time stated. The phone was easy to set up and the instructions supplied were explicit allbeit that I had read reviews saying otherwise! In fact it is suffice to say that the best part of this review is to come by saying that the use of this phone is very easy and I love it. All in all one very satisfied customer and I would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone in my present situation or infact anyone who only need a phone for calls and texting. Also, the price was very reasonable as well with no added postage costs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment twice over 4 Dec 2010
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I am afraid that so much promise from this item turned into disappointment. Although it looked as though it would be the ideal mobile for my elderly and infirm mother, neither of the two models we tried functioned properly out of the box. I suppose it just proves the old adage that "You get what you pay for."

The first phone was black and looked quite neat, but there was a fault with the charger and it refused to charge. The second model was silver and appeared to charge properly, but when a SIM card was inserted, none of the keys would function. Now, my mum is old and her attempts to join the 21st century are a marvel to us, but problems like this can be very off-putting to the older person at whom this phone is aimed.

Please will someone produce a phone for the elderly that actually works out of the box first time and is reasonably priced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Senior Mobile phone 20 Sep 2011
By robG
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I ordered this phone which was delivered in 4days, excellent in my view. the set up was very easy,

Transferred my old sim card to this phone. No problem, Charged phone, worked straight away.

The instruction book was in English easy to understand.
On previous reviews others have written they couldn't understand the Instructions.

as it was not in english.
All i can say is Purchase the phone from this company. I'm 73years young and found it was No problem to set up. I only need a straight forward phone.

without all these so call extra things. I am really pleased with it and like most people my age need it more for that odd call etc.

the large numbers are really helpful plus the charging can be done via mains or USB connection. Volume control button on the side plus a torch button.

I would add its the phone of my choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for me. 7 July 2010
By darnoc
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I have been looking for a phone that I can use as I have a hearing problem and can't see small buttons properly. This is ideal. I could actually hear when I used the phone inside a large shop. The ring tone is nice and loud as well.
My wife set it up for me as I am a bit useless with technology and even she found it difficult to read the page of instructions showing what was what on the phone. The writing was so very tiny. Love the way it says welcome. It sounds like 'Rockabye' but is probably Chinese for welcome. The only small downside is that the radio can only be used outside. The reception isn't very good.
