Telstra’s EasyCall 2 is a simply designed mobile with big buttons, audible key tones and a quick switch to make calls quickly.
It also has handy features like an in-built torch, T-Coil hearing aid compatibility, FM radio.
The “switch” also activates the speaker phone and dials their preferred phone number meaning users can hold the phone up to their ear and still speak.
“At the same time, it will send a SMS message to four pre-programmed numbers, so seniors can simultaneously contact friends and family,” Telstra Consumer Exec Director, Rebekah O’Flaherty, said.
The device, which retails at $99 on Pre-Paid comes with a Blue Tick, giving full coverage in regional and rural areas on Next G network.
It also comes with $10 credit and can be bought online or in Telstra Shops.
