Helpful tips for buying cell phones
Tip 1 – Functionality – Consider which functions you need in a phone. Keep it as simple as possible. What will you use your phone for? Calling? Texting? Internet searching?
Tip 2 – Size of the phone – The size of the actual phone should be large enough to hold comfortably.
Tip 3 – Screen – Make sure the screen is big enough to see clearly.
Tip 4 – Buttons – The button size should be large enough to see and to use easily.
Tip 5 – Volume – Are the ringtone and earpiece volumes adjustable? Do they get loud enough to hear them well?
Tip 6 – Phone Lock/Unlock – How the phone locks and unlocks is important for people with arthritis. Normally, to lock or unlock a phone, a person has to press a series of buttons. A flip-style phone may be a better option because the phone unlocks as soon as it is flipped open.
