The first phone I haven't set up for my mother,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doro PhoneEasy 615 GSM Sim Free Mobile Phone - Black (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Like most people I bought this for my parents, or rather my mum bought it for herself using my Amazon acount.
So really I am not the person to review this. In fact I haven't had much hands-on time with this phone (Mum denied me the fun I get from playing with new tech toys by setting it up herself).
One thing that was confusing between this and other sellers was the availability of the charging cradle. The phone was supplied with USB power brick, USB cable and charging cradle. In fact the only thing I had to do when I visited my mother was to plug the USB cable into her digital video recorder. This was to fix the one small fault with the phone, if the battery goes flat the clock stops. Since the DVR is always on so all she has to do is to drop the phone into its charging stand without worrying about leaving the charger switched on and wasting power when she isnt using it.
She is now nagging me to teach her how to text. However I bought a Blackberry because I cant text to save my life. (If my niece is reading this, you have a job to do at Nanny's)
The package comes with charging station as standard
Good clear menus(Mum got started without me).
Stores important medical details.
No secondary battery backup on the clock.
Given the sales pitch my mother is doing for this phone there may be limited supply of handsets.
