In a nutshell Motorla have a secret weapon in the Motorola MOTOFONE™ F3 mobile phone. It is designed for developing markets and is low cost but with a difference which is only now becoming understood by the dealers. Its a great phone. Its low cost. Its voice quality is outstanding. Its display is mono but large lettering is clear and easy to see for middle aged and senior citizen eyes. The battery lasts forever (well many days at least). There are no complex applications to learn. Its a phone. You can send texts. You can store phone numbers. You can set the time and an alarm You can choose from a few chirpy modern ringtones. And thats it. It doesnt do anything else. Its not confusing. And remember its as cheap as can be. I bought one for my mum for 25 quid sim free. You can find them on ebay for that.
