The Affordable LG100C from Net10

I checked out the line-up of phones from Net10 and was pleased to discovered a number of phones that might be suitable for the needs of senior consumers. Net10 is a minor carrier that specializes in prepaid mobile phones and a flat rate unlimited plan.

We will feature Net10 phones in the future but in this post we will look at the LG100C and its potential as a cell phone for senior citizens. The is one of the most affordable handset's in the company's line-up at only $19.99 . This cheap prize is one of the reasons why I chose it as the first Net10 phone to be featured in this blog.

Now let's look at some design elements for this affordable mobile phone for seniors. The LG100C sports a simple bar style design. It also comes with a basic user interface that any user can navigate without much effort. This is a crucial element since some seniors prefer uncomplicated devices that can get the job done.

The display on this senior-friendly phone is a bit small. It's a color display but the small size might be a hindrance to elderly users who have weak vision. Luckily, the phone's keypad is quite user-friendly. The keypad comes with separate individual buttons so a user will not find it difficult to dial a number or to locate a specific number. The navigation keys for this phone are clearly marked so using the menus are quick and easy.

The other notable features found on the LG100C include the 1000-entry phonebook, voice dialing, voice commands, hearing aid compatibility (M3 Rating), hands free speaker, vibration alert, and text messaging.

Here are some specs and additional info:
  • Dimensions: 4.09 x 1.80 x 0.50 (104 x 46 x 13 mm)
