Hi does this phone have predictive text option and does the font size can be changed to larger

Yes, it has predictive text and the font can be changed. Great simple solid phone for the elderly technology-averse people. I wouldn't use it to send long texts but simple messages can be set up. Dialling is good through the Photo Dial function and has good emergency contact function. Overall I like it, no touch screen, no browser, very simple phone

Sending an SMS on this phone is a total pain as it uses the old multi tap system and certainly not something an older person could manage. I haven't tried altering the text size but remember that the screen is very small so a larger text would limit the amount of information available at any one time. Don't bother trying to sent or receive photos as the camera is pretty awful and so far I haven't been able to receive any incoming photos.( My wife did receive "half" a photo at one point so I told the sender to resend to my smart phone which was naturally OK) .This is a very basic Flip phone similar to 1999 models and so is best limited to receiving and making phone calls providing a tech savvy friend can set up the contact list and speed dialling.

It is a lot better than many of its competitors. Only when we cease to depend on Chinese manufactured batteries will we really start to see phones with reasonable battery lives.

HI, looking at purchasing this phone for my 82 yr old mum and just wondering how the hotspot works please. She uses hot spot sparingly but it needs to be simple to access. Is it possible to perhaps advise the steps taken so I can see if this is easy for her?
She only uses the phone for phone calls and hotspot.

Hi
I didn’t see much value in the wifi connection, my mum only uses it for calls which is perfect. There is no internet browser. I hope this helps

Hi Judy, The EasyFlip can only use data to send/receive picture messages, send a GPS location or through use of the myEasyAssist remote access application. These functions use little data. The Olitech Telco ECO plan has 200 MB of data included.
Kind regards,
Olitech

This model phone is just for calls and texts but you can set up online account to check on phone activity. It is a simple phone for computer illiterate and those with physical and mental disabilities.
