USB only charger,
This review is from: BC5i Big Button Sim Free Senior Telephone - Black (Electronics)
This is a nice, smart, compact, very easy to use mobile phone. It comes with a built-in SOS emergency function, 10 speed dial numbers, an FM radio button, a torch and a 100 number phone book. The only drawback, possibly, is that it only has a USB cable to charge the 1000mAh battery. Now that may suit some people, but I would have thought that a big button phone like this would have great appeal to the more elderly person who probably doesn't have access to something with a USB socket, so limiting the phone like this strikes me as daft. The price is great compared to most similar models around, so it will certainly make a good present, but do check first that the recipient will be able to charge it! (Amazon do sell adaptor plugs like this one - 3 PIN 1000mA USB Power Adapter Mains Charger UK Wall Plug for MP3 players, ipods, iphone 4G, iphone 3G, Apple iPad, Mobile phones, PDA's and Digital Cameras etc - so there is hope, but it's still a bit bad not to warn people about this in the description.]

I'm thinking of buying this phone for my partially sighted and hard of hearing grandad.
How big is it?
Have you had any problems with it?

It's about 4.5 inches by 2 inches. The buttons are nice and big, and what will help your grandad is that, if you want them to, the buttons will actually 'say' the numbers out loud when you press them. The person I bought it for has had no problems at all with it so far.

Next to the USB port is a hole that accepts newer Nokia chargers too.
