I'd like to purchase a cell phone for my husband for Christmas. He's 73 and just needs a real basic, easy to use, no frills phone. Any suggestions? Thanks all.

Pantech Breeze(TM) cell phone at AT&T has larger buttons & simple to use. The Jitter Bug is also very simple to use and doesn't have all the extra features.
This phone is specifically for people like him!
Jitterbug is the way to go. It has large numbers and no extras to worry or confuse someone. Call and talk to a operator to find out more. 1-800-918-8543
I like my Jitterbug phone.
My 73 year old husband uses a Trac Fone, purchased at Wal-Mart for about $25.00, and then he purchases a phone card with minutes on it. The minutes come in different denominations and can be purchased so that they are used before expiring, then he just goes and purchases more minutes. Those young people in W-M will be happy to give you the details (and believe me, they know all about them). He has had others, and says this is the only way to go for just a basic phone.
Hope this helps.
STi is the cheapest way to go. it's 8.9 cents per day plus 8.9 cents per minute. I only use mine for my own convenience, and it costs me $3 to $5 a month. The minutes don't expire, so you can put $25 on it and it's good for several months, depending on usage
Right now the phone is available for $36 including $20 in air time. www.STiphone.com Or you can usually find them at Staples but I'm not at all sure of the prices there at this moment.
If you get a flip open phone it is more natural to use, and you can program the numbers in that he will use most often.
Be sure you tell him to only charge when needed, otherwise the battery won't last long no matter which phone you choose. Once a week should be plenty.
I can't find the website at all concerning that cheap cell phone feedback. STlphone.com, I can't find it. Annie
