I made an inquiry which was responded to very quickly with the answers I was looking for eg - I ordered the phone the next morning and within 2 days it was delivered and my husband was able to use it - clear instructions, easy to use - PERFECT piece of technology for those not so technology-minded. Many thanks Olitech.
