Hi I have a friend who has very limited dexterity who is able to use a phone with physical buttons. But all the phones I have found are like the Alcatel one I have for him at present with no access to mobile internet does anyone know of a phone I have tried him with a touch phone but he can't cope with using it. Any ideas about phone that would work will be greatly recieved.

I saw something like this yesterday at a shopping mall.


It still uses a smartphone though.

Do they specifically need to be large buttons? I may be speculating a bit here, but most users who require large physical buttons, are due to dexterity and/or sight issues. Anything with large enough buttons to help, is not likely going to have a large enough display to make internet browsing usable. If the buttons don't specifically need to be large, then a case with bluetooth keyboard like that shown above may be a good option, paired with a mid-range smartphone.

Hi thanks for all the help and advice. I have tried my mate with a smartphone and he finds the physical keyboard easier. His problem is dexterity.
