Sanyo 2700 for Kids

Best Review 1456

The special needs that young kids have related to cell phones is their need for safety from predators, bullies, and so forth as well as their parents need to limit or monitor use. There are kid friendly plans offered by cellular companies that can help with this and applications that can assist too. On the other hand, a basic cell phone like the Sanyo 2700 which offers GPS, no web access, and parental controls such as timeblocks and allowances is a great option.

The Jitterbug J for Seniors

Best Review 1456

Not all seniors have special needs when it comes to cell phones. Some are perfectly comfortable using an iPhone or some other modern device. However, for some seniors, vision or hearing may be reduced, fine motor skills may not be perfect, or their comfort level with complex navigation may not be ideal. For these individuals, a phone with simple menus, some one button dialing options, a speakerphone, good volume, large font, a spacious keyboard, and a build that's comfortable in the hand is important. The Jitterbug J is one of several options that meet this criteria.

Net10 Phones for Those With Restricted Budgets

Best ads 2

The typical cell phone plan carries a monthly cost that can be prohibitive for many people. The per minute cost of some prepaid plans may also be prohibitive or the phone offered too expensive. Net10 offers phones for as little as $19 and calls cost only 10 cents per minute. Clearly, for those on a restricted budget, calls would need to be limited, but for those who need a phone only for emergency and occasional use, Net10 would be a good affordable choice.

You forgot to mention another

You forgot to mention another great phone for people with special needs - Just5 phone! Those phones are awesome! And their customer service is just wonderful! I think everybody who reads this should give them a try! My Mom is 72 and she even started to use the phone more frequently after i bought her this Just5 phone :-)
Note from the webmaster: this is obviously a spam comment (included url removed) but I let it pass because it provides useful keywords (thank you Just5 spammer) for this page.
