You almost miss the point with this one! Its too complicated for my mother in law. It has text, she wont use it doesn't want it, so wont buy it (the phone), even though it would be perfect for her. Not having a camera is not a con its a very big, big positive. There is calling for a very basic mobile with good reception, loud speakers, big buttons easy to press and nothing other than the ability to make and receive calls. You recently reviewed the Galaxy S II i9100 and one of the cons was "Poor call quality", then gave it nine out of ten! Surely the main prerequisite of a phone must be good quality phone connections and being able to hear what is going on.I am not being technophobic on this one, I have had a succession of HTC smart phones from before HTC were known as HTC. The only reason I don't have the latest WM7 HD 7 is due to WM7, I will stick to 6.5 on my Touch Pro 2 until such time as I can use a memory card and they have sorted out some of the other issues.
but you can always remove SMS from the menu!
As marketed in Canada with Rogers, big issue with this phone, currently no replacement chargers are available. If you loose the charger the only way to get another charger is to get another doro phone, is to make a 3 year commitment with this company which, if you are unable to do so, means you can not use the phone...As well the emergency button is too easy to push - thus the number linked to this is too easily bothered....It is confusing why to create a simple cell phone of the old fashioned variety Rogers had to go to a european phone model which is why the charger is such an issue
