CellOne announced the launch of, EasyTalk a senior’s package made up of a user friendly flip phone designed for the older mobile phone user combined with a basic rate plan, the most affordable in Bermuda.
“CellOne is cognizant of the aging population of Bermuda and being a major partner and supporter of Age Concern over the years, we’ve had great insight into what seniors are looking for in wireless services.” said Frank Amaral, Chief Operating Officer of CellOne.
“CellOne takes great pride in offering not only innovative mobile options, but also in creating plans to suit different lifestyles and budget choices.
“CellOne strives to offer all of its customers the best phones and plans possible.”
In speaking about the new senior phone Mr. Amaral added, “The Doro 610 is an excellent device for our older customer, offering what is most important to them- safety and security.”
CellOne’s new Easy Talk senior’s plan is Bermuda’s first plan built for residents of 65 years or older.
The plan consists of 100 anytime minutes for only $27.00 per month and customers activating will have the ability to add unlimited nights and weekends and unlimited text messaging to the plan for a small additional monthly charge.
With the EasyTalk launch, CellOne is introducing the Doro “PhoneEasy” 610; a basic GSM flip phone with enhanced security features .
The Doro 610 is hearing aid compatible, has an extremely loud speaker for the hearing impaired, and includes an ICE “In case of emergency” option where all personal health information on the owner can be stored.
Another major feature of the Doro 610 is the emergency security key conveniently located on the backside of the device.
This security key is a programmable panic button which when pressed sets off a loud 5 second alarm to alert the surrounding public of a crisis.
The Doro 610 will then escalate an unanswered alarm by attempting to contact up to five emergency contacts added by the user.
Emergency contacts will be called and text messaged in the sequence that has been manually programmed until the contact is reached.
CellOne’s new Easy Talk senior’s voice plan and the Doro 610 senior’s phone are available today exclusively with CellOne.
Age Concern in partnership and agreement with CellOne will be offering all members 1 month’s free service with activation and a free group seminar on how to use the device. Age Concern members or future members are advised to visit any CellOne store and present their Age Concern membership card to be eligible for this offer.
Claudette Fleming, executive director of Age Concern stated, “Age Concern Bermuda is pleased to endorse its LINK Partner, CellOne in its launch of the new Easy Talk plan and the Doro 610 mobile phone for seniors.
