4.0 out of 5 stars JSM Big button GSM 19 May 2010
This phone is cheaply made in plastic but in terms of basic functions is fine. The main problem is that instructions are are a poor translation from Chinese and some functions are difficult or not possible to access.

1.0 out of 5 stars large button phones 31 Mar. 2011
By Wendy
I may be visually impaired but I can still work a mobile phone. I am really disappointed with this. Does it mean that because I need glasses to read and send messages that I am now doomed to loose all the other potential abilities of the ordinary mobile phone - like predictive text etc. - I am not wanting a camera or an all singing and dancing one, just a basic mobile?

Come on all you mainstream phone companies like Nokia, Vodaphone etc. get your act together. Your designers are too young and not doing their market research properly. There must be hundreds, no thousands of people in their 50s who are savvy enough to use mobile phones - but who is attending to our needs? With difficulty and despite not wanting to be called an OAP - I am 56 and not quite coming to terms with my age and the deterioration that seems to be encumbent. I am still quite capable I think.

I have just bought a large button phone mistakenly thinking I could manage without my glasses to use it and it is worse that ever. The instructions are complicated and small type. Sending a text is the most laborious business in the world and so confusing. Receiving a message is a fairly dodgy business as well.

No wonder older people find mobile phones confusing if this is their first experience of them.

Get real someone and DESIGN A PHONE WITH LARGE BUTTONS that works like the other mobiles.

From a genuinely disappointed person who still needs a new phone with big buttons so that I can use one when I have forgotten my glasses!

4.0 out of 5 stars comment 29 July 2010
By pleione
The phone does look cheap but the emergency SOS button is a good feature. However the instructions are written in tiny print which is a bit contradictory considering this phone is intended for the elderly and therefore not necessarily with brilliant eyesight otherwise the buyer wouldn't be considering a big button phone in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big buttons small print 26 Feb. 2011
By pip
I purchased this phone for elderly friend and she as found the phone to be perfect for her us, ease of use excellent big buttons and audible sound on using, set up relatively easy. Disappionting the phone is supplied for people who are visually impaired and hard of hearing but the instruction sheet requires a magnifying glass to read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect a decent instruction manual 9 Feb. 2011
I didn't get mine from Amazon so can't be sure the instruction manuals are the same but I now have two of these from different sources and this applies to both. The manuals are close to useless. The print is very small, but that's less of a problem than the almost unintelligible sentences. One booklet is appalling and the other is less bad but of limited use. I have searched on the Internet for a downloadable manual without success. Unless you are confident about working out the operation by trial and error and making up a new instruction document for a senior person you are likely to be unhappy, at least if you get the same instructions I got. It would be helpful if the instructions were online, as is the case with reputable manufacturers, who care about customer support, as then you could check their quality. (I have now worked out how to use the operations my relative requires but it took both booklets and some perseverance.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Button Phone 6 Sept. 2010
By Thistle
Verified Purchase
My mum suffers from Meniere's Disease and the SOS button is a big plus. Once an attack hits her she cannot focus on anything and it is so easy just to press the red button.

The large keypad buttons are ideal for her as she has a touch of arthritis. Set up was easy.
