    Big button waterproof phone for father in law? 10th Nov 19 at 9:24 AM
    I have an 80 year old father in law that needs a big button phone. Furthermore, he keeps dropping his phones in water so it needs to be waterproof !!

    Anyone got any suggestions?

    Clearly he's 80 so no need to be stylish. Doesn't text or surf!

    Define "big button".

    If you would care to enter the requirements in one of those very useful search engines a few examples will be listed. I just did and there were. Very limited functionality and mostly only 2G.
    Sorry if that sounds a bit sarcastic, it isn't meant to be.

    CAT B30

    You could find used on eBay at 30.
    May worth a try if he keep damaging old one


    BTW, if the main use is at home only, search GSM home phone on Amazon instead
