Keep in touch with your elder relations with this Bluechip BC5i Big Button mobile phone. You think those big buttons are to make it easy to press? Wrong, they’re to take away the phobia of shiny gadgets with teeny buttons. Nothing says non-threatening better than Fisher Price sized controls.
It comes with enhanced loudness, an SOS button on the rear and speak aloud numericals, which confirm your keypress via audio. Oh and it features a nice handy LED flashlight on the top too. Marvellous! £29.95.
The Bluechip BC5i features a dedicated SOS function, with a large orange button on the back, which lets you quickly send a text to a specified number. This number can be set on the phone or via text message, so if your emergency contact changes their number you don’t have to worry about updating your phone – they can do it automatically for you.
