Holiday Gift Guide 2012
Grandparents and other older users generally only need (or want) a cell phone that makes calls and can be used in emergencies.
Some of our more aged friends and family members may not care all that much about the latest technology. That's why some still have rabbit ears on their television sets at home. (Some even have an antique Gran Torino or Red Barchetta in the garage out back.) Even so, you might want them to have a cell phone for your own peace of mind, if not theirs. That's why this list includes only the most basic devices that offer good call quality, solid battery life, and easy-to-use hardware. At least one selection even includes services specifically for those who need help with their medications and other health-related functions. These phones definitely target function over form.
