Lacks some of the useable features of the Easymate.

published

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.
Welcome contact or advice by email.

Perfect for basic calling

published

Easy to use for those struggling with tech knowledge; I set it up for an elderly friend who normally dislikes
mobile phones but he finds it wonderful. Hearing/sound quality is excellent at both receiver and caller ends; recharging base is really great - easy to use and understand; number buttons and phone screen are large; flip opening to answer, being able to change feature displays and "customise" the phone is great. Picture quality however is very poor.

Perfect for my mother

published

Mum only uses her phone for calls, it is easy to navigate and use.
It was easy to set up and easy to teach her how to use it. She has the volume turned up and she loves that she can hear her phone ringing

Simple and basic phone

published

Setting up the phone was very easy although the instruction booklet was very small and a bit wordy. Perfect for elderly parent who has no use for internet but lost her landline and needed to go online. Buttons a good and easy to see and use. The arrow buttons and yellow button could be slightly bigger for arthritic fingers but it’s still doable.

Super Easy!

Bought this for my mother, who struggles greatly with technology. Love the fact it locks and unlocks with the flip down. Numbers are big and the voice set up is super. She loves knowing who is ringing with the photos and with time will hopefully gain more confidence. Thank you for designing a phone that is simple and easy to use.

Excellent product

published

We purchased the EasyFlip mobile for an elderly friend of ours who lives alone and needed a mobile in case of an emergency or for her family to contact her. The phone was easy to setup and install all her required numbers explained the emergency button on the rear and it works fantastic, she and her family are really happy with the EasyFlip mobile, it has excellent ring tones which are very loud for her to hear and easy to use.

Be careful. This phone needs a small sim card.

published

Very satisfied once the correct size sim card was installed.
Product information could mention what size sim card is needed.
Only used for calling and messaging but very happy so far.
Have only had it for one week

An Easy Phone For Seniors

published

I purchased this phone for my elderly mother who is very happy with it. She finds it easy to make calls and receive calls. The clip for the SIM card is fragile. That needs to be redesigned otherwise I highly recommend the phone. The support I received from Olitech with regard to the SIM card clip was very helpful.

Good straightforward product.

published

I bought the phone to replace an old slide phone for a relative who won' t use a smartphone. Transferring information was straightforward, the keyboard is easy to use for someone with imperfect vision and the options for setting up the phone were intuitive. We don't use the remote monitoring or panic button yet but it's there and can be introduced gradually. Once we do try it I think it will be useful and easily accepted because that's an addition to the "normal" phone, not a new intrusion on independence. I'm already recommending the phone to friends with elderly relatives.

So far a great phone

published

A great update from my EasyMate and with more features! Haven't used the camera yet because I have a 'proper' camera!! I don't need a smart phone, so texting and calling is good enough. I will be going over to the Olitechtelco for cheaper operation! Pity Olitech doesn't sell 'Dongles' for travellers?

Easy phone for older folk.

published

A good unit that is most suitable for people who find smart phones too challenging. It is also very suitable for those whose hearing is not great. My main reason for buying the easyflip was because of the emergency button. My wife suffers TIAs and on these occasions cannot form words. The prepared messages are ideal and can be sent to me and my daughter.

Great Phone for Seniors

published

I had an Olitech EasyMate which was a very good basic phone for people who want to make calls and texts without all the bells and whistles of a fully featured mobile.
I recently upgraded to an EasyFlip because Telstra are warning that they will be closing down their 3G network.
The EasyFlip is even better than the mate with more and better features, but still user friendly and uncomplicated.
Great customer service response when I got into trouble because I was a bit careless setting the phone up. They had me back up and working again in no time !!.

Great phone with obvious flaw

published

The phone is great for my grandmother except that the "Easymate assist launching soon" screen often comes up when she is trying to navigate the phone. This is confusing for her. Also the "End" call button is the same as the power button and she has already invertantly turned the phone off a few times when trying to hang up or escape from an app because she struggles to differentiate between a short and long press. As a result we have not been able to contact her. This is a serious safety issue.

Yes, it's unlocked on purchase and any SIM card (nano size which theirs would be) along with that provider's plan will work.

Will the mobile phone plan to go with this phone need any data?

Olitech SupportOlitech

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.
