namely my Mum (nearly 70). After years of various people trying to teach her how to use hers and failing, I have been sent out to buy her a suitable one that is more straightforward.

All she needs is to make calls and maybe send texts (or at least receive them)

I know there are some specially for this market out there but I haven't been able to find anything this googling morning.

TIA smile

Try SilverPhone.

Those are great products AnarchyAunt - I tried to get info on an easy use mobile for my ancient parents five years ago and nothing like this was on the market.
What an enormous shame that the prices they charge put the phones beyond the average pensioner's budget

thanks - that's what I was thinking of but I just kept being giving any phones but that were all silver (in colour) hmm

Will have a look at that
