Review - Great Gift Idea: A Cell Phone for Seniors from Clarity


ClarityIn my opinion, buying great gifts for my parents and grandparents can be quite difficult.  Why?  Because I've been giving them gifts for most of my life and it seems that I've already bought them everything I think they could want (or I could afford).  Also, because they're older, they've received innumerable gifts from others too over the years, so they truly have everything.

Of course, I could always try and make their lives easier by giving them the latest technology, but older people and technology don't usually go together.  Or do they?  Clarity is a company that specializes in making great products especially for seniors and now they've really outdone themselves by designing a cell phone for seniors, called the Clarity Pal.

I reviewed the Clarity Pal, which retails for $99.99, but is currently on sale for $91.99 with FREE SHIPPING.

The Clarity Pal is the Perfect Cell Phone for Seniors

My parents wouldn't know what an "app" was to save their lives.  Many in the baby boomer generation don't want all of the bells and whistles of today's smartphones, but would rather have a dependable mobile phone designed around what they find important: amplified sound, a large display and dial pad, and a one-touch emergency button.

That's why the Clarity Pal is the perfect cell phone for seniors.  This well-designed communication tool will keep the older generation safe and connected, without being bogged down by features they simply don't want or need.

Although this phone is easy to use and geared toward seniors, the Clarity Pal is great for anyone who might be hard of hearing or who has poor eyesight.  My father was a machinist for more than 30 years and honestly could have benefited from a phone like this when he was in his forties.  Also, the numbers on most cell phones today are awfully small and hard to see, even if you have perfect vision.  So the larger numbers of the Clarity Pal will be a terrific treat for some.

This cell phone for seniors offers plenty of options for activation too, making it an easy and hassle-free holiday gift option.

A. Independent − Buy a plan with the GSM service provider of your choice (Example: AT&T or T-Mobile).

B. Join The Family − Have a family member add you to an existing "family plan" for approximately $9.00 (actual price depends on service provider).

C. Pay As You Go − Buy a SIM card from the service provider of your choice and then buy prepaid minutes online or at a retailer such as Wal-Mart or RadioShack. 

D. Senior Special − Puretalk USA offers nationwide cell phone service with no contract or activation fee. Plans are available as low as $10.00 for 130 minutes. For details visit

This Christmas, give your special senior a gift that will delight them the whole year through.  The Clarity Pal is a practical and useful tool that will keep your loved ones safe and connected to those around them.

Disclosure:  I received the Clarity Pal in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. This feature is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective.
I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
