Re: Recommended phones for older people/bad eyesight
The only phones that might have slightly larger buttons would be the older 5190. But some things like certain things on the screen will tend to be tiny. To get the biggest letters in the phone book for instance use the name only rather than name and number. Mobiles aren't really friendly to people who have a hard time seeing or hearing.

Last year my grandmother picked up a Motorola T193 from Cingular (pretty much as soon as they came out) the Rep gave her a free orange cover so that it would contrast with the buttons so she could see it easier. However, when it comes down to it the buttons are still really tiny and frankly the menu system on the phone sucks.
Looking at Cingular the only phone that they offer that may have bigger buttons than the T193 is the 3395. But I really dont know by how much.
Any recommendations on phones that have larger displays and larger buttons for these type users? I was looking at an older motorola 6000e flip phone but i worry that the flip would break off.
I am suprised there isn't a market for these types of phones. I know people want stylish SMALL phones - but there have to be plenty of people out there that want phones with bigger buttons and bigger screens.
