Officeworks

Can answer calls when opening and is very clear and loud. Love that it has a second screen so I can see who's calling me before I open the phone. The charging dock is a great addition.

have had positive experience on both the Opel phones I have purchased. I am 64 yo and I am absolutely 100% satisfied with my recent Flip Phone 6 purchase, it is great for me and does exactly what I need a phone for: to make phone calls, send receive text messages and it is small and grippy so it does not fall out of my shirt pocket when I'm working on something….

Great for a first phone or if you want it for phone calls only. Keeping in touch with a young person who ou do not necessarily want to use internet
