    I would guess a non-flip phone would be best. From there we can talk about specifics...do you want a T-Mobileicon (GSM) phone or just the what may be the best that's out there regardless of carrier?

    I you have pain holding the phone against your ear, you could try a headset. Any phone with the standard headset jack would be a good bet.

    A phone with large clear keys may also be helpful.

    We bought my grandfather a cell phone a few years back. It was a bar type phone with a large display, and the keys were spaced out farther than most cell phones, so he could use it easier. I also agree that the headset is a great addition as well.

    You may also look at a phone with voice dialing. I'm not sure what all phones have it, but I do know it is on the Motorola V3. It works real good and I think it may help. With this phone, all you have to do is push one botton and tell it who you want to call. It can be done by name of person in the phone's book or just tell it by number to call.

    I forgot about voice dialing. It is available on all current Motorolas AFAIK. Most carriers also will add voice dialing to your plan if your phone doesn't have that capability built in. It usually runs about $5/mo. I think because of the disability laws now, if you can prove a medical disability I think they have to offer it for free.

    I don't know about other carriers, but Sprinticon has a program with not only voice dialing but also 411 calling and a couple of other services free. You need a form from Sprinticon signed by your doctor. - sheureka
