Recommendations on a simple, easy to use cell phone for senior citizens.

My mother is reaching 80 years old and she needs a basic, simple cell phone that she can use. She doesnt know how to text message or use the web browser but she said that she would like to learn how to. She has had the same flip phone for years and can't do anything on it but make calls. I've considering purchasing a touch screen but I'm afraid that it will be too difficult for her to use. Any recommendations on a possible touch screen phone or a flip phone with large, easy to read buttons?
