Sprint Intros iD Pack for Seniors
Cell-phone assist for seniors
Hopefully Sprint also incorporated things like:
(1) Large font, vastly simplified interface design (i.e. the number, size & legibility of icons & text on each screen),
(2) Rubbery, grippy cases (the iPhone could never be a serious phone for seniors, because of the ridiculously stupid slick-backed case Jobs insisted on).
(3) A convenient way to carry their phones on a lanyard the seniors can hang around their necks if they wish (phone is less likely to get lost/misplaced, it's closer to their ears so they will actually hear the phone ring/beep, they can get to it quickly so they can answer it before it goes to voicemail).
(4) Etc, etc, etc
Anyone who makes light of the plight of seniors is either a truly uncaring person, or has not yet witnessed just how difficult life becomes as humans age. I hope Sprint has actually done their homework and considered all of the aspects of phone usage that younger people take for granted, but those with poor eyesight and diminished manual dexterity find very difficult to master.
