    Default Flip Phone

    Looking for a mobile phone for an old fart with fat fumbling fingers.
    Prefer a flip type, less chance of making pocket calls.

    Thought this one might do the trick.

    Would prefer one on 2 degrees prepay.

    Don't get the Alcatel then, the buttons are too close together....get the other - widely spaced buttons. It's not just size of buttons with that...I know - husband is the same, meaty fingers and he ends up pushing both....

    From the specs they would be very similar size.
    There is also a Aspera F28 at Dick Smith very similar.
    Not sure if that one is locked though.

    Bought the Doro for the better half and she loves it. Does everything that she requires.

    It's not size. It's the space between the buttons..........

    Do as I did - get the Doro phone and transfer it to 2degrees SIM. A fee of about $30 to switch providers. But it's worth it to have the right instrument.
    Either go where you're looking or look where you're going!
