    You can go to a VZW store or the web site...they have phones just for the young and the elderly...
    I looked at a few...this one seems nice, very simple, yet easy to use, and it's cheap!:

    I would suggest the Samsung SCH-u340. For one it has big buttons and does not have a lot of unnecessary features. Another good part is it is FREE!!!

    When you are at VZW.com on the big red bar at the top highlight phones and accessories, then click on all phones

    The U-340 is the Knack, right? If so, that would be my first choice.

    I third that.

    How about a Motorola DynaTAC 8000x?

    Nice, simple, built like a brick.







    Yeah - I remember those days.

    30 minute talk time, 8 hour standby. No whining about GPS or WiFi or MMS capabilities. Good stuff.

    It is caused by our tendency to make everything harder than it should be. I do it all the time.

    It is why I have what seems to be a permanent palmprint on my forehead.

    I'm 69+ and have been using the Moto W385 for 2 years now and it has never let me down. For a dumb phone, it's fairly 'smart'!
