Doro 6520

British phone manufacturer Doro set about designing simple, affordable handsets that strip away all extraneous smartphone features and focus primarily on calling and texting. The Doro 6520 is one such handset. Pitched as an "Easy Phone", the 6520 incorporates a range of accessibility features that make it particularly well-suited for the elderly or those with disabilities that affect their dexterity and motor functions.

Design

  • Simple flip-phone design with large physical buttons for easy operation
  • Wide array of accessibility options for those who need them

Camera

  • The simple point-and-shoot 2MP camera should serve well enough for basic photography
  • You'll want to purchase a microSD card if you plan on taking a lot of photos or videos

Performance

  • Sufficient power for the simple tasks it's designed for
  • Limited internal storage caps the number of contacts it can hold

Battery

  • Up to 8 hours of talk time, according to Doro
  • Battery can be removed and replaced if necessary

    I have Doro 6520 phone for my sister in law, who is in a nursing home, to use to stop her from spending over $300 per month on calls. However I have been unable to put the Belong $10 per month sim into the phone and make it work. The Doro phone has been unlocked and I have tried to put in the validation codes I have been given from their support people. The screen is still coming up with SOS only. I have checked the sim in another phone and that is not the problem. Is the sim incompatible with the Doro 6520 phone? If not what do I do to enable phone calls to be made please?

      Hi Liz,

      Thanks for your question. The Doro 6520 accepts Micro SIM cards, rather than the Nano SIM cards supported by most modern smartphones. It’s possible that your Belong SIM card is the Nano variety, which would explain why it’s not playing nice with your sister-in-law’s Doro 6520.

      If you find this is the case, you should be able to request a Micro version of your SIM card from Belong.

      Regards,

      Matt

      Hi Terry,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      So long that your Doro handset is not locked with a certain provider, you may insert your Telstra SIM card to connect your Doro handset with Telstra.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Please note that AldiMobile’s prepaid vouchers are used with AldiMobile’s prepaid plans/products. If you click on the buy now green button on this page, you will then be redirected to eBay’s page to proceed with your online purchase.

      I hope this helps.
