sim free JCB toughphone sitemaster 2
A nice size phone with large buttons making it easy for people with thick fingers to use. A good range of ring tones different to anything you would normally hear. Speaker volume is quite high even when on its lowest volume setting so ideal for those hard of hearing. The Predictive/smart text is fiddly and it doesn't allways remember a word that you've just used and saved as a new word. On reciept of the phone I would suggest that the settings are adjusted to virtually minimum on everything in order to prolong the charge in the battery. Accessing the internet is tricky as the phone tends to run out of memory before a page has downloaded Connecting too and downloading from the web is slow.. Battery life has not as yet got anywhere near the suggested standby time. After the first charge it lasted approx 48 hours but this covered playing with the phones getting to know it and changing the settings to suit me, the 2nd charge lasted approx 3 days which included 2, 2min phones calls a dozen texts and half an hour on facebook. Its now on its third charge in 10 days.
It would make a very good first phone for a child especially with its indistructability. Use of the built in torch anything other than a quick flash will quickly drain the battery. I would not recommend this phone to anybody who has previous experiene with a mobile phone.
