    so carpel tunnel syndrome is not appealing.  I've had my phone  blocked for text messages.  I just don't want to read shite on a tiny screen because I'm an old broad.

      I use an ergonomic keyboard. I'm pretty sure it's helped. I'm also sure it would help more if I didn't use a flat keyboard when I'm using my laptop (like I am now).

      As for phones, sounds like you need (or probably have) one of the old school ones that Just. Makes. Phone. Calls. I have a whizbang phone that does all kinds of wonderful things and sometimes wonder if I shouldn't trade it in for a $10 model that doesn't do a darn thing and just get myself a tablet that I might actually be able to read.

        It makes calls and has buttons you can see even if you're over 15.

          in the Old Farmers Almanac. (Don't laugh. I'm an Almanac junkie and not ashamed of it.) Their big selling point is basically "These make phone calls and THAT'S IT." That and the big, presumably senior-friendly, digits on the display (older people being the apparent target demographic for the Almanac).
