Shopkami lists this senior citizen cell phone as a "Blind Embossed Big Keypad Cell Phone For Elderly People with SOS," which is a little confusing since I’ve never met any elderly people with SOS—Alzheimer’s maybe, but not SOS.

Oh wait! The senior citizen cell phone has an SOS feature! It’s a panic button that can be pre-programmed for emergency calls and text messages. Hit the panic button and the phone sounds a loud warning and broadcasts messages to the designated phone number. In addition to big buttons and most standard cell phone features, this phone has a flashlight and FM radio. Stats for Alarming Old Folks' Phones Trending: Older & Chilly
