R1,895.00

If you’re looking for a phone for elderly people with more than just big buttons then this phone is perfect. It is a basic large button phone with a big clear display. It has been designed specifically as a phone for seniors and will work on any network with either a standard prepaid or contract SIM card. The phone also has a GPS function which gives you the peace of mind that you can locate your loved one if they ever need your assistance or if they get lost.  The large buttons make dialing a breeze and the speed dialing option allows for up to 9 preset numbers to be called by simply holding the corresponding button in for a few seconds.

The SOS button on the back of the phone is activated by holding it in for longer than 3 seconds. Once activated it sends the phone’s location via SMS to the preset SOS number of your choice and will also dial the SOS numbers you’ve preset until someone answers. Want to check on your loved one without having to call them? Simply SMS “URL#” to the phone and you’ll receive a Google Maps link showing you where the phone is.

Because it has been designed as a phone for seniors both the ringer and the speaker have louder than normal volume to cater for those who are hard of hearing.

Product Description

A basic cell phone for elderly people with an SOS button and GPS function that allows for easy locating of your elderly relative in case of emergency. This phone for seniors has been designed as a large button phone with a big clear display and will work on any network with either a standard prepaid or contract SIM card. Because it has been designed as a phone for seniors both the ringer and the speaker have louder than normal volume to cater for those who are hard of hearing.

 

Functions

The phone can send and receive calls as well as SMS’s. As far as additional functionality it has an LED torch as well as an FM radio that is really effective.

The GPS tracking function allows you to locate the phone by simply sending it an SMS or by going online to www.cootrack.com to view it’s location.

The SOS button is a great way to indicate the need for assistance in case of an emergency. By holding the button in for a few seconds the SOS function is enabled. An emergency message along with the location of the phone is sent via SMS to the three numbers programmed into the phone book as the emergency contacts. The phone will then automatically try to call the three numbers in turn until someone answers.

Because this phone has been designed especially for older people the volume of both the ringer and the speaker are extra loud to cater for those who are hard of hearing. It can be set to ring, vibrate or ring and vibrate.

The phone has also been designed to cater for people with impaired sight. The buttons are large and are clearly marked. The phone can also be set to audibly read back the buttons as they are pressed to confirm which button has been pushed. The display uses large black text against an orange back lit display which is easily read in daylight.

The phone uses a standard size prepaid or contract SIM card and can be used in any country. The battery has a 9 day standby time and 9 hours call time.

Because it has been designed as a basic large button phone it does not have a lot of the fancy functions many other phones have. It does not have a camera, WiFi, 3G or the ability to run any apps. While some would see this as a disadvantage, older people would welcome the simplicity and ease of use of this basic large button phone for the elderly.
