The Cheap Doro PhoneEasy 410 from Consumer Cellular

Consumer Cellular is one of the carriers that offers a special program for senior citizens. This company has allotted phones and deals that specifically target the needs of the elderly. This Consumer Cellular phone for seniors was introduced two years ago and still remains as one of the best options for folks who are 65 years or older. Let's look at the simple and easy-to-use Doro PhoneEasy 410.

Sine the PhoneEasy 410 is a phone that is being offered to seniors it comes with a price that is friendly with most budgets. Consumers can get this phone for $25.00 after instant rebate plus a $35.00 activation fee. This offer does not come with a contract so it provides flexibility and allows consumers to avoid irritating fees and credit checks.

Now, let's look at the features that makes the Doro PhoneEasy 410 a good mobile phone for senior citizens. Let's start with the design.

The handset sports a flip design with an easy-to-read color display with large text so its suitable for users with weak eyesight. It measures 2-inches with 176x220-pixel support. You can't alter the size of the font but there's really no need to since it's large enough even for users who are partially sighted.

The keypad for this phone is also designed for seniors. The spacious keypad comes with soft-touch buttons with rubbery feel. One will find it easy to dial by feel because the number keypad some large digits, and the keys are raised above the surface.

There are other senior friendly qualities that combine well with the phone's practical design. For instance, there is plenty of volume and very little static or background noise when making calls so it scores high marks for performance. It's also it’s Hearing Aid Compatible (T3/M3) so it's a good choice for seniors who are hard of hearing.

The phone also comes with an emergency feature that allows the users to quickly alert friends or family members in case of any unfortunate eventualities. I feel that this feature should be on every cell phone for senior citizens.

That's it for this post. Stay with us every week for more mobile phones for the elderly and other related topics.
