I am looking for a simple cell phone that could be used by my parents (92 and 86 years old - never used a cell phone before). They don't require anything elaborate, they're not going to be connecting to the internet, they're not going to be downloading videos,music, etc.

All they need is a simple cell phone to dial a number and connect with somebody just to talk.

I'm posting this on this chat board because I would expect that some people on this board are familiar with the requirements I'm looking for and may be able to suggest a phone.

I checked on Consumer Reports, but they only cover smartphones with elaborate data plans. Not the type of telephone or service I'm looking for.

I see a phone connected to AARP - from Consumer Cellular. Low price plan ($10/month ) and simple phone($35 one time). The reviews are not that good for this service.

Anyone have any experience with this provider or suggest another one ?

Thank you
