Voice only users:

My mom can barely figure out how to change the channel on her TV, let alone program her VCR. but like many other people, she knows how to gab on the phone non-stop and can (with a little help) figure out how to put her oft-called contacts into speed dial. Even with tech support, she's still not going to try text messaging or browsing, in fact it's unlikely she'll change her ringer. Each of these phones has standard keypads and simple menus. They are physically reliable, with solid build quality, decent battery life and good signal strength. They should be both drop- and dummy-proof. Although a camera is typically not a requirement for such light users, more and more people are interested in having a camera phone. Some of the models have cameras or a few other extra features, but still possess the simplicity and clarity required by technophobic light user. Because these phones are light on features, we've made sure to choose models that are light on your wallet as well.
