replacment phone

Help! Ancient technology I know but I've had a Nokia 8310 for about 6 years now which has finally given up the ghost. I had other phones with all sorts of features but I love that little Nokia: OK precious few features but so reliable, so simple, almost indestructible (until now).

I need a replacement.
Don't need camera, MP3, massive memory or anything like that.
Do need:
Calls
Simple Text (don't need pictures etc)
Reasonable size buttons (hate the really tiny ones)
Robust (preferably bombproof)
with large text/adjustable font (don't want to have top carry my reading glasses with me all the time)
Decent/good battery life
preferably Nokia (hopefully simply menus etc so easy to use)

As I said, I've had all sorts of fancy phones as well at the 8310 but I hardly ever used the features and have problems with text size on some of them.

Any recommendations?

Most of the features you list will come as standard on most Nokia and other makes of handset.

You dont mention if you want a candy bar or slider fone.

Nokia n79
e50
7500 prism
6500 classic

are but a few that would tick the boxes you want.

I currently use the Nokia 8800 arte which ticks all the boxes I need on a handset ,and even some ticks I dont use too. Asthetics plays a part for me and the exclusivity of the handset also plays a part for me ,even tho the price tag is very high.

Good luck with your eventual choice.
