How Loud Is the BigTel 1202 Amplified Telephone?
The BigTel 1202 is an ideal telephone combination for anybody suffering from hearing difficulties, as it features various volume-adjustable settings. The receiver volume can be increased up to 30dB. This will help improve the quality of telephone conversations by ensuring that the person on the other end can be clearly heard. This will be particularly important if sensitive information or medical advice is being delivered, as it minimises the risk of the information being misheard.
The ringer volume can be adjusted up to 80dB. This is beneficial for anybody who has difficulty hearing the phone when it rings. The phone also features an equaliser, enabling the tone to be altered between four different settings for optimal listening.
Is This Phone Suitable for the Visually Impaired?
The bright backlit extra-large display screen on the BigTel 1202 is ideal for those with visual impairments. It can display both text and numbers for easily searching through the phone book, and it also features the date and time for viewing information with ease.

Is This Amplified Telephone Suitable for Those Suffering from Memory Loss?
In addition to the visual and audial benefits, the BigTel 1202 has a built-in phone book with a capacity to store up to one hundred telephone numbers. This will be ideal for anybody with memory issues, as it eradicates the requirement to recall phone numbers or locate telephone books. The numbers will be safely stored in the phone, always ready for easy dialling.
Is the BigTel 1202 Easy to Operate?
Due to the nature of this cordless phone, the user is required to press the green button to answer a call.
