MY IDEA.......

GIFFGAFF TO SELL MOBILE PHONES FOR THE ELDERLY AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE ACCESBILITY NEEDS WHO CAN NOT USE A NEWER HANDSET DEVICE.

Not everyone necessarily need or want our smart phone to be all that smart.

What about the those of us and personal above that need a phone to be just that  - A PHONE... 

Let's allow and take shared care of the people I keep mentioning. 

I have included phones for them of our elderly, our disabled customers our shared care goes further with the phones as people have dexterity needs, people with all kinds of problems.

You may be thinking to yourself

( Just a phone for the elderly) 

( Already been a idea ????) 

Well think again this idea is for the many people out there that have many problems with there disabilities. 

It's hard to fully understand the problems with our elderly generation and people who have accessibility problems who need a mobile phone but find it difficult to use a handset.

I believe in myself but some may disagree that the market in the mobile phone industry is aimed at the younger generation.

So I would like giffgaff to learn something from this idea and sell mobile phones on giffgaffs website for all ages and handsets that are compatible for the above persons.am not talking about a lot maybe three to four handset.

It may be a very small market but for a company like giffgaff that pride themselves on being at the forefront of customer service and also customer care that is run by us our members surely they with our members input can research and provide mobile phones for customers with accessibility needs and person's who find it difficult to use a newer handsets.

I am sure person's with the needs of such a handset with special features to suit them run into the thousands let's make no mistake here.

Giffgaff can and should learn that there accessibility options can go that one step further than a box at the bottom of there website.

Some of our older generation and people that have hearing issues and also other dexterity problems can not use a newer model of mobile phone handsets, myself finds it difficult to use newer generation of mobiles. 

Mobile phones that can be implemented and launched on to the giffgaff market are not expensive and have features that incorporate a better use of handset for the people who might find it hard to use the current crop of mobiles that you are selling at this present time.

(PLEASE FIND THE ATTACHED LINK OF THE HANDSETS GIFFGAFF ARE SELLING)

https://www.giffgaff.com/mobile-phones

The benefits of the handset are described below

TEXT RELAY HANDSETS, READ ALOUD SPEAKER BUTTONS

( For person's that have difficulty in hearing or use a hearing aid)

BIG BUTTON HANDSETS

( For people who have problems with there sight)

READ ALOUD BUTTONS AND SOS BUTTON

(For any people who need the aid of a phone that can read text messages aloud and alert them to what buttons they are pressing when trying to dial a number, also the SOS button that's preset with a family members number at the back of the handset can be pressed in a emergency)

Just imagine for 1 minute about maybe a relative of yours with dexetery problems or they might have sight hearing problems even people with limb or hand injuries the struggle they might go through just to use a new handset like a

SAMSUNG S8 or IPhone A HAWAWEI, to name a few.

Like my nan she's my world her name was elsie she has sight problems she had a talking book a big button house phone but not a mobile for when she is in her bed or even in the kitchen if she needs myself or my family in a emergency one press of the SOS button and that would call a family member or preset to the police. 

Yes you might think the elderly have all these pendants called lifeline around their neck and they just have to press the button, but do people realise how much they are to service and for the equipment ( A few quid ) not everyone can afford them but for 35.00 pounds upwards to buy a cheap but a very important aspect of there day to day life. 

To myself it's a lifeline for them not just for emergencies but to talk to family and friends to connect to the world. 

Phones that giffgaff could sell and likely to be purchased by the people who have difficulty with any aspect of the above can be made available at a cheaper cost with a goodybag attached or not a goodbag attached suggestions of members welcome .

THEY HAVE IMPLIMENTED THIS BEFORE WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DORA. 

PLEASE SEE ATTACHED LINKS OF THE HANDSETS THAT COULD BE PURCHASED.

Please can my giffgaff friends/members contrubute and tell me if there could be more to do.

Have a say in this,

Tell me if am wrong.

Any suggestions or advice would help.

Supported but how would they be able to buy goody bag with basic phone if they don't have Internet access? If they could buy goody bag via text or call, that would be fantastic.

by: wainw59
on: 10-06-2019 14:17

Thanks for the kind reply as for the goodybags, this is a question that giffgaff can go into, Maybe a prepaid sim with say ten pounds already on so they insert the sim and then it's all done then next time they can buy a voucher,. Until giffgaff look into it its just a idea at moment but thanks for the kind input

The first two links in your post don't work:

https://www.giffgaff.com/boiler-plate/accessibilit...

I've supported your idea. Giffgaff should make a point of serving all their customers.
