Top Six Cell Phones for Seniors

Smiling Senior Couple and Cell Phone

Cell phones have transformed from a luxury item into a necessity over the past decade or so. Today, they are an integral communication tool that helps us make plans, confirm plans, text and call home. Most importantly, cell phones provide you with the opportunity to contact others in case of an emergency. Yet many seniors categorize cell phones as luxury items, believing they can live without one.

    The Motorola Tundra Phone, Black (AT&T) should do the trick. It is audio is quite loud and clear, which should help to compensate for your hearing problem.

    Hi, I just discovered your web site on “smart travel.” This is so wonderful!!

    I got the Knack last year for my dad, and it’s great except…..the phone had a defect in the ringer volume. Dad would set the ringer to High, and the phone would turn it off.

    Since I was just visiting him, I was able to replace it under warranty. I hope this one works.

    What my dad was unhappy with is the face this phone does not have a camera nor a gps. Too bad.

    I know someone who had a Motorola Tundra. It had a funny quirk, you could not turn it off without taking the battery out!
