Alcatel OneTouch 282 is an entry-level phone designed for elderly or minimal mobile users who want a straightforward handset for making calls and sending the odd text.
At just £30 on pay as you go, the handset is cheaper than lots of other mobiles marketed at elderly people -- such as Doro's range of simplified handsets. But Vodafone is offering essentially the same device -- the Vodafone 155 -- for £5 less.
Both phones have an SOS button on the back that can be customised to call and text a variety of contacts, plus hearing aid compatibility and an FM radio. They also come with a handy charging dock where the handset can live when it's at home.
