Pantech Breeze II: AT&T's Latest Mobile Phone for Seniors

The Pantech Breeze was AT&T's answer to the Jitterbug, Verizon Coupe and other handsets that are especially designed to serve the needs of seniors. The Breeze formed a potent combination with AT&T's special rate plan for seniors. However, the carrier has decided to replace its reliable senior-friendly handset.

AT&T has now started to sell the Pantech Breeze II for a senior-friendly price of $19.99 with a two-year contract. A low price is a good attraction for seniors who do not have the luxury of relying on a fixed source of income.

Consumers may also go the unlocked route by purchasing the device for its full price of $170. This may be a lot more expensive than its contact price but its a good option if you want to be free of contractual obligations.

The Pantech Breeze II still carries on the tradition of being a suitable phone for the elderly. The 2nd generation Breeze is a simple flip phone with easy-to-use features.

However, I did notice the major changes made to the handset's keypad. In my opinion, the keypad on the original was much more suited to senior citizens.

Nevertheless, the Pantech Breeze II would still be a good choice for consumers who are interested in a cheap cell phone for seniors.

Here's a list of the key features for this device:
  • dual color displays
  • 1.3-megapixel camera with video capture
  • voice-guided GPS navigation
  • 3G connectivity
  • Bluetooth
  • speakerphone
  • microSD card support up to 32GB in capacity
Tha's it for this new cell phone for senior citizens. Visit often to get more news and updates on the latest plans, accessories and mobile phones for seniors.
