Following in the footsteps of the popular ZTE S302, a phone specifically designed to meet the needs of the elderly, Vodacom is now introducing an upgraded version. 

The ZTE S306 cellphone boasts larger buttons than the previous model, making it a viable choice for anyone who has trouble reading the symbols on other keypads or who may have limited hand dexterity. The previous model's screen has been critised for being too small, with the S306 now sporting a bigger one. In addition the SOS button has been improved to make it easier to use in case of emergencies.
Apart from the SOS slide button and large keypad, some of the S306's other features include a slide key-lock button, louder ringing tone, an easy to use torch and FM radio.
 “At Vodacom, we believe that all people should have access to mobile telecommunications and that we need to ensure that our range of handsets caters to all needs. The ZTE S306 is elegantly simple and helps make technology work for the user rather than the other way round” said Shameel Joosub, managing director of Vodacom SA.
Vodacom is offering the ZTE S306 cellphone at the recommended retail price of R399, including a free Vodacom starter pack. The ZTE S306 cellphone is available from all participating Vodashops, Vodacom 4U stores and Vodacom Direct (dial 0861-123-123 or visit
