The mobile phone industry is one that seems to be very much aimed at making the younger consumer happy. With each new generation of the latest smartphones are released, the features become more complicated, with the learning curve following suit. What about those folks that simply want an easy to use mobile phone that contains just the features they need? We are talking mostly about younger kids getting their first phone or elderly people who want a way to stay in touch with their family. The latest phones are not the perfect option for either of those groups, but the mobile options delivered by TTfone absolutely are.

One of the best examples of what TTfone has to offer can been found in their Jupiter TT800 model. This is a mobile phone that is most definitely perfect for elderly people, as it has a number of features that not only make the phone easy to use, but also adds a level of security too. The Jupiter TT800 comes in basic black and has an easy to read orange backlit display. The buttons on the front are large, clear, and also easy to read. You won’t find Swype keyboards and buttons for emoticons here, just the basic numbers and power on and off buttons.

Another issue that the elderly have when using modern smartphones is figuring out what part goes into what outlet. Modern phones have a ton of different input points, which can be more than a little confusing to those that aren’t familiar with the features. The Jupiter TT800 comes with a UK mains charger and a standing dock that the phone can be recharged with. The latter in particular is great, as the mobile can then be used more like a traditional house phone, which is something that the elderly people will be much more familiar with.

We spoke earlier about safety, which is something that is of prime importance for older people. The Jupiter TT800 comes with a couple of features that will give real peace of mind to the user, as well as family members who are concerned about their well-being. The first is a dedicated SOS number that can be used in the case of an emergency. Any number can be programmed in and it just takes one press of the panic button to make that all important call. Another great feature is the one touch torch button that turns the phone into a mini flashlight for those times when the power is out or visibility is low.

The Jupiter TT800 is just one of the great mobile options in the TTfone line-up. There are brightly colored options, such as the Mercury TT002, as well as flip phone options like the Venus TT700 which may be more suitable for kids looking to get their first phone. All of the phones are durable and built to last, which is an especially important feature when you have little ones with slippery fingers that often drop things. If you are looking for a mobile phone that works great and doesn’t confuse with a host of bells and whistles, take a look at what TTfone have to offer.
