Phone recommendation for 98 year old mother?

Trying to get my 98 year old mother on Visible.  She is currently using a flip phone that is not compatible (I checked).

She has tried smart phones in the past and has a difficult time using.  Can someone recommend a phone (preferably with larger buttons) that is compatible with Visible?  It needs to be something that I can readily purchase online.

 

Thank you,

Steve

Visible is a good fit for users that want unlimited data at a very reasonable price. A person with a flip phone is not a data user. There are many MNVOs that offer unlimited talk and text for far less than $25 per month.

Example: Twigby  uses Verizon towers and has an unlimited talk and text plan for $10 plus taxes and fees

They have a flip phone for $69.

look for other operators. Visible is online only network.

Thank you but that is not an answer to my question.  Visible is an online network but it will suit her needs just fine.  I am using it as well as other members of my family.  Just need to know a reliable flip phone that will work on Visible.  I am aware of the AARP Consumer Cellular plan, but it does not rely on VZ towers.  She lives in a rural area where the only tower is VZ.

Thank you for that suggestion.  Her present phone is a NUU (the one flip phone they offer).

We will go that route.  Great suggestion!

Unfortunately flip phones doesn't work on visible, visible is not for old people if you are looking for a flip phone T-Mobile has a cat phone it's called cat S22 don't buy the NUU because it's very slow phone believe me,  Verizon also has a lot of flip phones good ones, and you can activate it on any MVNO if you don't want to pay so much for Verizon
