Telecom Solves Present-Buying Dilemmas With $129 Mobile

New Zealand’s Telco launches best value 3G seniors’ phone

Telecom Solves Present-Buying Dilemmas With $129 Mobile Phone Perfect For Seniors

Telecom New Zealand today announced the launch of the Telecom R203 - a mobile phone that is easy to use, easy to see and easy to hear – while having an extensive list of features and a ‘smart key’ to provide peace of mind.

The Telecom R203 has large buttons, a large screen with 3 adjustable font sizes and a loud speaker that makes it easier to hear the phone ringing and the person calling.

The ‘smart key’ is one of the phone’s most interesting features. Simply by flicking a red switch at the back of the phone, users can simultaneously set off an alarm, call one nominated number and send text messages to four friends or family members.

Retailing at $129, the R203 mobile phone will be in Telecom stores from today (Thursday 8 November), well in time for Christmas shopping. Telecom Chief Marketing Officer Jason Paris believes it will solve many a present-buying dilemma for adult children looking to buy for their parents.

“We think this phone will be very popular this Christmas.

“Its features are extensive. It has a built-in torch, an FM radio that doesn’t require a headset, an organiser for setting alarms or reminders – it is even designed to be compatible with Tcoil hearing aids.

“We also expect it to be snapped up by parents who might be looking for something that the kids can throw in their schoolbags, or for anyone with family and friends who are interested in technology but like to keep life simple.”
