Required for an elderly pensioner who only likes to use Nokia flip. Bought a refurbished one from trademe but it was refurbished using cheap parts I guess, kept turning off. Let me know if someone has something lying around. Has to be working condition as she lives alone and kind of relies on it.

Why not get a brand new Nokia 3310 instead? Warranty, 3G is future proof (at least for now), works in multiple networks, etc... For $99.

Yeah I’m trying to convince but it has to be a flip phone, I guess she finds the screen unlocking part very convenient when you open the phone and the fact that you can answer the call by just opening the phone.

Got the partner a Doro flip phone at The Warehouse for $99, and with unlocking fee it came to $129.

(Was locked to VF, changed it to 2D with no problems.)

 

Even has a charging cradle which she loves - no cable to plug in!

 

Not bad for a new 3G flip phone, and more importantly - she is happy.

I've got a Motorola KRZR Flip Phone in mint condition if anyone wants it.  Hasn't been used for about 4 years but still had good battery life last time I used it.  Charger and all accessories included in original box.  Blue just like the picture below.

Motorola KRZR K1

 

Specs here:  https://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_krzr_k1-1646.php

 

This is a 2G only phone, suitable for Vodafone, 2 Degrees or Warehouse Mobile but not Spark or Skinny.

Make me an offer if interested.

The Doro flip is great for older users - I bought one for an elderly relative a few years ago, after she had been struggling with a cheap Nokia - night & day easier to use
