    Like most people, I would love this for my dad. I’ve bought him mobiles in the past and he just can’t use them, way too small buttons for his arthritic fingers. This would be great

    Love my granny she’s just fab

    But her old mobile is rather drab.

    In her new nursing home she feels alone

    and could do with having a brand new phone

    When she calls us she has to shout

    She’s always wearing her voice out

    With a Doro 615 she could finally hear

    She’d be able to listen oh so clear

    ICE alarm would put our minds at rest

    because Doro phones are clearly the BEST!

    Both of my parents in their early 80’s and rarely use their cell phones anymore because they are unreliable and hard to use. I would love to make their lives easier by winning one of these. They would share it like everything else they have for the past 56 years.

    Please let me win. Its perfect for my Nana. We’ve tried to introduce her to a mobile before…with no success. It would be a relief to be able to call her when she’s out of the house 🙂
