An easy phone for my father?

I'm planning to buy a smartphone for my dad who doesn't know much about technology.
Is there a specific phone you would suggest? What do you think of Windows Phone 7 os? Is it easier than IOS?

Yep, WP is a bit like a "dumb phone". Big tiles, simple, fairly consistent UI etc etc...

You may wanna check out this list of 101 things that are "wrong" with the WP-platform. They may no bother you or him, though... http://www.mobot.net/101-reasons-buy-windows-phone-7-5-device-ouch

Thanks. i don't think it will bother my dad. He doesn't use emails at all.
Any phone suggestions?

Lumia 710.

Absolute bargain @ £130.

Yes, the Lumia 710 seems the best option if you don't wanna spend big money.

Find that really confusing, were rather more issues than just email ones.
