CPR Call Blocker Big Button Sim Free Mobile Phone

The CPR Call Blocker Big Button Mobile is a phone aimed squarely at those looking for a simple to use mobile with some interesting tricks for managing incoming calls.

It has a small screen (display only, not touch) and a large button keypad underneath.  The back is removable as is the battery.  It takes a standard SIM card (i.e. the large type) and can also have a micro SD card fitted for additional memory.

Considering the target audience the manual has been printed in rather small text, perhaps the thinking is that someone with excellent eyesight will be setting the phone up.

CPR Call Blocker MobileThe screen menu items are nice and large, and contacts can have photos added to them so it’s clear who is calling.

There is a camera included and an interesting use of the camera is as a magnifying glass, showing a magnified view on the phone screen.  It’s a nice idea and could be useful in a pinch, but the low resolution camera and screen mean you wouldn’t want to use this over a real magnifying glass.

The phone gets its name from the ability to block unwanted calls.  This can be achieved via one of two ways: either specific numbers can be added to a blacklist, and any calls made to the phone by those numbers will be automatically rejected; Or numbers can be added to a whitelist and ONLY those numbers will be accepted, with all others being rejected.

Note that if voicemail is setup blocked callers will be redirected to the voicemail rather than having the call terminated.

Around the back it an SOS button which, when triggered, sounds an alarm, sends out an SOS text message to nominated numbers and attempts to call those numbers as well.
