We all have that one person in our family who “just wants a phone that can make and receive calls”. Or that one person who just wants to call only their family members. Well, this product from KISA could be just the product you need.

I came across this solution to solve an issue for a lovely 92 Year old lady in a nursing home in Sydney who had difficulty  using a Mobile Phone due to her slight vision impairment and the fact that her home fixed line was costly and not portable.

The KISA solution solved both challenges for her.

Firstly, the cost of the phone was $389 for the BYO SIM model plus $19 delivery plus $89 for a 365 day SIM. Total for the first year was $497 with each subsequent year only costing $89 to pay for the SIM. Compare that to the fixed phone line in her room which I believe was costing her $65 month or $780 per year!

Secondly, the phone is portable and easy to use given her vision impairment. The KISA phone can be configured to display names, photos or Braille for your 10 nominated contacts.

I know this is NOT going to be a phone for everybody clearly but there will be many who will benefit from the ease of use and simplicity the KISA phone offers
