    The basics

    For some reason my son would not keep his iPhone in its case. I told him if he breaks it I'm not replacing it. He didn't think fat meat was greasy. What do ya know, he broke it. So I got him this as a replacement and turned off the data. Now he's been reverted back to 2002 and the laughingstock of his friends. That'll teach em.

    My mother's old flip phone broke set the hinge. She'll be 90 soon and I need something similar to what she had so she wouldn't have to learn how to use it again. The sim card with her old phone wouldn't fit, so I contacted AT&T and they activated the be card for me. This one has bigger buttons and screen and she can hear much better in it than the old one.

    I bought this for an 85 year old parent. She was comfortable using a basic flip phone without a lot of bells and whistles, so this checked the boxes vs a Smartphone. So far, so good. It's one of the only options available for seniors. It has large keys with large font and is simple for them to use once set up. I would recommend this for anyone trying to find a "senior" phone option.

    This phone can do a lot more than you think. If you don't live on your phone; if you don't need every app that's out there; if you don't deal with every aspect of your life thru your phone, than this one is for you. Compact, fits easily into a pocket, no butt-dialing mishaps. Call, text. That's all you need.

    AT&T Alcatel Smartflip 4052R came safely

    I ordered an AT&T Alcatel Smartflip 4052R from Best Buy late evening July 30 Thursday and received it safely by UPS on Monday. It has WiFi, which makes downloading things easier on data. I was able to sign into my Google account and transfer my contacts to the new phone. While it has very few wallpaper or ringtone choices, I was able to install a wallpaper app from the KaiOs Store called Wallpaper World and it has a lot of nice choices that don't take much room in storage. The phone allows email login and I was able to do that on WiFi. The pad and screen are easy to see. The back button is the END CALL button. Editing a note, to delete a letter or word, use the End Call key. To activate the camera from the home screen, press down on the navigation ring. Messages, press right on the navigation ring. It's a basic flip that should do good service. It may take a little time for familiarization with the menu format for people new to smart flips. A good point is that it can take a memory card for storage of photos or music. It has an FM radio that requires a wired headset for an antenna to get reception, it needs a 3.5mm plug. It seems to be a decent flip, but I miss the old flips like my zTE z222 that didn't have WiFi but it was small and it worked fine. The old flips felt more solid and they were good quality. The new ones are very plastic in build but do have good keypads and screens.

    I could never get my 88 year old mother to get a smartphone, which we could use for video calls with the grandkids. She loved her 10 year old flip phone, but it had lost buttons and she couldn't hear with it anymore. I replaced her old flip phone with this phone. She also has memory issues, so I was concerned that it would take her awhile to get used to it, since the buttons for the speakerphone and mute were different. She was able to use it right away and said it was much easier to use, the buttons were bigger, and the speakerphone was easier to find. Overall, she and I are very happy with this purchase.

    I needed it to be unlocked by AT&T and they said I would have to use it for six months before they would unlock it for me to use it o TracFone service. Thank you.

    Alcatel Smartflip phone works well for me and the price was great! I was disappointed that you said it was in stock and then did not deliver next, but you recoverered quickly and delivered on the second day.

    This is a low-cost, utilitarian, prepaid Go Phone with Internet connectivity and text message capability. It is best for short calls and voicemail to coordinate activities or discuss shopping decisions with someone at home, or to collect voicemail from pharmacies, doctors, boring relatives you'd rather not talk to, and so forth. The voice quality is substantially better than my previous flip phone, though not good enough for a prolonged conversation.

    I went to Best Buy to schedule a Geek Squad visit. It would have been 9 days away, but I needed help sooner. I set it us with you. The Geek Squad agent was excellent. I later talked with a computer expert who helped me take care of my problem. I returned to Best Buy and cancelled the visit from the Geek Squad. Again the agent was very friendly and helpful.

    Cell Phone was recommended by phone service knowing individual had very limited cell phone plan and only wanted talk/text and camera. Cell sealed in package could not check out prior to purchase. Only see thru window. Large package, Contents charger, including very very limited instructions how to operate, navigate, etc. Individual required some assistance such as turning phone completely off and did not understand how to drill down thru menu. Went to cell phone place, shown how but would not take the time to show more, ie, how to load contacts as instructions provided in package horrible. Everyone and all cell phone services assume everyone can afford data plan and don't listen to customer, ie. me. They only wanted to make a sale. This was a gift for an elderly person who did not want a flat cell but something simple. Maybe phone ok for someone who has some experience with cell phones and knows how to utilize other functions with cell.
