    And a decent battery life!
    My Grandma, (90 years old) got sold an iPhone 10 and it's a nightmare.
    She was regularly hanging up on calls by hitting the power button (Until I disabled that function) and NOW she just grips the screen perfectly to hit the big red "hang up" button, hanging up on active calls over and over again.

    what I need:
    A flip phone, with bluetooth (For pairing with her hearing aid) and a good battery life, or a ROM or launcher that has a tiny "Hang up" button, or allows me to move the "hang up" button around on the desktop, or that can't get touched so much inadvertently.

    Any ideas?

    Just a possible alternative suggestion but if dexterity is part of your Grandma's button issue, you might want to pick up a stylus pen for her. Using a stylus is easier for some elderly people instead of a finger when it involves a (relatively) tiny smartphone touchscreen.

    I agree with my buddy Svim, OP, get her a stylus, they are cheap at Walmart, a huge pack is around only 10 bucks if you can find something that is super dirt cheap like that.
