My parents need new cell phones, they have 8 year old flip phones, but screen is too small and black/gray is too hard to read for them.




Anyone recommend a new phone?


happy to buy online.




Requirements in order of importance:


1. Not a smart phone, T9 txt and calls only is fine.


2. large buttons.


3. bright high contrast screen.


4. cost of less than $150


5. good battery life (a few days).


6. best if works with Voda, but flexible on that.


7. flip style is good.


8. camera is nice.

I am really enjoying the nokia 3310 3g, $99 from spark (locked) cost another $30 to unlock it.


Otherwise a re-release of the nokia 8110 i also coming (don't know if it will end up in NZ however).

I don't think you can beat the Doro flip phone for this:


I bought one for an elderly relative a few years ago and they were very pleased with it
