This is the phone also known for being Tracfone's Senior Value Cellphone. As more seniors are discovering the convenience of cellphones, and specifically prepaid options, so providers are starting to cater to their specific needs. One of my mom's friends have this SVC, and so my mom decided she should have one too! She asked me to look into it, and it seemed perfect for her needs, so I purchased it for her.
She's been using it for 2-3 months now, and I'm amazed at how quickly she's got the hang of it. I've checked it out and I can understand why. The font is large, the screen bright and the sound clarity good. It's quite a compact flip phone, so she can easily keep it on her. There are light up icons on the outside of the phone to let you know when you've got a message or missed call, which I think is nice for practical purposes, though I think she just likes it for the gizmo effect!;) It has 911 location assist, but what probably sets it apart for seniors, is the easy navigation menu- couldn't be simpler.
Of course the other benefit is that it's a Tracfone, so rates are as low as $7 (though with her growing confidence with the phone, I don't see it staying that low). No contract is needed and there is no bill to deal with. I can also easily keep tabs on how many minutes she has left, as it is displayed onscreen.
This has been a valuable choice and I would recommend it to others looking for a simple, reliable and budget friendly option.
