I bought my mother the Energizer to replace her old Nokia but it was very, very basic, not suitable at all. My mother is hard of hearing so I looked on the Hearing Direct website and bought her a Doro 1360, £30, which is great. Much better than her old Nokia and the Energizer, brighter screen, louder volume and the dreaded new Virgin SIM works in it!!!!. She still had several texts from Virgin saying to put the new SIM in (which it was) or service will be lost. I eventually got through to customer service, they checked the SIM card number and said the text messages were sent in error and her SIM will carry on working.
Thanks Rob. Bought one from Amazon, so hopefully this will work for my 87 year old dad who has lost his access with his old Nokia. He only needs his phone to ring for pick him from hospital and he's due there on Thursday and so needs must!
