I'm having trouble getting used to it.
I'm finding the phone good for receiving and sending calls but it is very different to my last phone and it is taking me a long time to get to know it. The ability to hear the calls is a vast improvement on my previous phone but I am feeling lost in the workings of it. Sending a text message is a trial without predictive text, I really miss this.

Senior Phone for my Mother
Phone is good . Bought this item to have My easy assist having extreme trouble with this app
Works ok when next to phone then when I log in after I return home no connection very Frustrated

we bought this phone for my 89 yr old mother to replace a 3G Doro no longer working. Display and things are good but only problem is the buttons are not individually defined enough. Her arthritis hands have trouble with the arrows and the centre yellow enter button and tend to bump several at the same time.
Messaging is one of the main things she likes to use so she is constantly needing these buttons.
The emergency button is good. sound quality when calling is excellent.

Waiting for a new phone to arrive
I don't really want to give a review for this phone as the camera doesn't work at all and the phone is being replaced. I would like to give a review when I get the replacement.

Phone is OK; Service and EasyAssist is Hopeless!
Red Battery Indicator light on front face stopped working the day after I received the phone; three messages requesting return advice still unanswered after 4 days. (Light decided to come on again today). Tried signing in to EasyAssist website; after 3 password resets and 3 “Invalid login” messages, I gave up. Yes, the phone is nice and easy to use and a cheaper option for dinosaurs like me that don’t need a thousand-dollars worth of gimmicks but Olitech needs to lift its game if it wants 5 stars.

This phone and its manual are not good for people with eyesight problems like I have....
I had great difficulty with the manual.... as a text the book is far too small. The images of the keys are are blurred , in black and white - while the keys are in colour. An 'A5' sized manual I suggest as a minimum. The website manual is just as bad.....!
The "how to" info was badly considered, the assumption you make is that I am a "mobile phone literate"....not good.... I have to search for terms I am not familiar with. We "baby-boomers" are playing 'catchup' with this technology.
Thus far (I have not got too far with your phone) it is mec...

Not ideal for vision impaired people
Texting is difficult for my mother. She can't read the little text banner at the bottom of the screen - would be better if letters appeared in the actual text area, as you type, where they are bigger.

Too early to say anything useful!
Your survey timing is way too early as far as as I am concerned for I have not used My new phone for any significant purposes yet (during Covar19 restrictions period in particular). In this context getting such emails such as yours so soon after my purchase tends to render the email as junk from my viewpoint (particularly as I mainly bought unit for simple messaging and calling purposes).
Purchased in June 2020 at Olitech technology.
Lacks some of the useable features of the Easymate.
Maximum volume is too low.
Screen text not large enough. Increasing boldness helps but not enough.
Ability to change some of the preset autodials removed.
Bought the phone for my father to replace his Easymate. I suspect he will want to go back to the Easymate.
Navigation arrows with the yellow button are too close (or small). Attempts to press the yellow button usually result in a direction arrow being pushed which frustrates the user and destroys confidence in the phone.

Questions & Answers
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.
Serious about purchase of Easy Flip 4G,but as I have a Standard SIM CARD (25x15)(in my now defunct old phone )
