Smart phones are perfect for a mobile workforce, people with busy schedules who need to remain organized, and those who prefer to access the internet or play a video game instead of interacting with the people around them. They are not necessary for everyone. There are millions of people who only want a cell phone for simple communication.
There are also people, especially older ones, who cannot figure out all the buttons and functions. When that is the case, purchasing a smart phone becomes a waste of money. It can also make elderly people feel old, senile, and useless because they cannot keep up with technology. The fact that many people of all ages cannot keep up with technology does not seem to lessen their frustrations.A Simple Phone
An affordable and easy to use cell phone is available. The snapfon
model was designed with older people in mind. People can make calls and sent and receive text messages. Buttons are bigger than other mobile phones, and the numbers are easy to see.
A full color screen and a speaking keypad makes following function instructions and the main menu simple to follow. The volume is enhanced for clear conversations, and the phone is also compatible with hearing aid use. There is even an added button and optional feature to ensure safety.The “SOS” Button
Mobile monitoring can be added to any snapfon
calling plan for a nominal monthly fee. There is already an “SOS” button on the phone to activate this added service. In the event of a medical emergency, if the user gets lost, or if there is any cause for alarm, a push of that one button begins a chain of reactions to provide immediate help.
The first thing that happens is a loud siren is emitted from the phone to let those in the vicinity know there is a problem. The phone goes into speaker mode so calls for help can be made, or the situation can be heard at the monitoring station
. Five people selected by the user will be notified via text and phone call to their mobile phones. That allows everyone involved to have peace of mind.
