Cell Phone question...

I visited the "Can you hear me now?" store the other day because I'm eligible for an upgrade to my cell phone. However, the phones are getting smaller and smaller, making it difficult for someone like me with increasing hand coordination problems to operate. I have a small flip phone that is about two years old with the inch-long antenna that makes a nice "handle" to retrieve it when the phone is ringing. Nowadays there are no models with this extension. So, I'm sticking with my trusty current phone despite its scratches from being dropped or me falling on it. Do you all know if any of the cell phone manufacturers have something that is more friendly to disabled folks? I don't want one of the old brick phones, but something larger than a pack of gum would be nice!
