Cons: If you are getting this phone for features like a camera or the texting capability,then don't bother. There is no camera and the texting is very basic and slow. Caller ID is not displayed on the outside of the clamshell / flip phone design. The phone is preset to answer when opened, so it basically defeats your need for caller ID.(This can be changed to the answer mode "any key" setting; however. You can view the caller ID after you open the phone.)
The Situation: This phone was purchased for my 84 year old (ELDERLY) mother. She has never used a cell phone in her life and lives at an assisted living facility.She wears 2 hearing aids and has failing eyesight.
Pros: The Doro 410 has extra loud and clear sound (+35 dB) and a vibrating ringer. Mom likes the choice of the "old school" ringer sound. This phone is amazingly simple once set up properly.(She could not have done this herself.) It was easily customizable. I adjusted the display background(wallpaper) to be the easiest for her to see the screen clearly. I hid(Blocked) the games, alarm, calendar, calculator, FM Radio and texting options from the main menu. I also deactivated the call waiting option. Mom loves the Open to answer - Close to hang up setting and doesn't care about the caller ID. The included lanyard makes it easy for her to carry around her neck when she goes out.(And she doesn't lose the phone. : ) You can program the Emergency Call Key on the outside of the phone to text a relative in an emergency. The phone will then call the relative and immediately turn on the speakerphone for mom.(Another good reason for the lanyard.)
Essential Accessories: The charging cradle is ideal for mom.(Ordered it online at ConsumerCellular.Read more ›
Mom found success with her Doro - a 3rd attempt at owning/using a cellphone - for three reasons:
1. "Open to talk, close to hang up"
2. Simplified phone book directory that's a breeze to access in the menu
3. Red is her favorite color
The phone is not unlocked, but I found a free unlock code online. For phones manufactured before January 26, 2013, this is allowable. If you do code-break your phone for use with your current carrier, the IMEI number on the device itself cannot be used because it's alpha-numerical ...enter *#06# on the phone to display the numerical IMEI.
I recommend someone with a bit of phone savvy set up the phone before giving to an elderly person for use. Like other reviewers, I hid the menus for Games, etc. In the Directory, default order is alphabetical. But, I was able to prioritize my mom's list by entering a space or number before the names I wanted to appear first. Example: Able, Baker, Charlie could be listed as 1 Baker, 2 Able, 3 Charlie ...or if you simply key a "space" before a name it will appear at the top of an alphabetized listing. This took a little effort, but now Mom's phone displays her children's names in the order she should call during an emergency.
The Doro has a "hot" button on the outside of the device. I programmed it with Mom's first priority contact, explaining "if you fall and it affects your vision or speech, just press this one button until you hear beeps and then let go...I will be on speakerphone and can talk with you or know you are too injured to speak but need help." I didn't set this alarm button to 911, because Mom and I couldn't test it without dialing them.Read more ›
On the other hand, the lite buttons at night are very helpful. The large buttons should likewise be appreciated by users with large hands, gloves or long nails. The LEDs on the outside of the case which let you know when you have a message and when the battery is low is very useful.
Overall, a good, solidly built phone for someone who basically just wants to talk on their cell phone.
UPDATE 2/13 - For the past few months both my wife and I who have this same phone have been having problems with the charger connection not engaging or cutting off before the charge is complete. I've also noticed the calender function is no longer working properly and the display colors sometimes wash out then return later on. I still have a much older Motorola basic phone I use as a timer and note keeper which still operates perfectly.
For the above reliability reasons, I no longer recommend this Doro phone.
