Amplicomms BigTel 1204 Big Button Amplified Cordless Telephone with Three Extra Handsets

Whether you're hard of hearing, or find it increasingly difficult to get to the phone in time, setting up cordless handsets in different areas of your home could greatly improve your quality of life. The Amplicomms BigTel 1204 Big Button Amplified Cordless Telephone with Three Extra Handsets is a practical phone system that includes a total of four cordless handsets with a 50-metre indoor range, long battery life and, most importantly, amplified ringing and receiver volume that ensure you won't have to strain your ears ever again.

What's Included with This Package?

This package was put together to help you make any home friendly to the elderly and the hard of hearing. It includes a cordless telephone with a base, plus three additional cordless handsets:

How Loud Is This Telephone System?

All four cordless handsets have been designed to provide improved control over both the ringer and receiver volume. The receiver volume can be increased up to 30dB, which will help to improve the quality of telephone conversations by ensuring that the person on the other end can be clearly heard. This is particularly important when sensitive information or medical advice is being delivered, as it minimises the risk of the information being misheard.

The ringer volume can also be adjusted up to 80dB, which is beneficial for anybody who has difficulty hearing the phone when it rings. The addition of a mute button ensures that the phone will not disturb the user when it is activated, while the hearing aid compatibility means the conversation can be transmitted directly to the hearing aid for more efficient listening.

How Easy to Use Is the BigTel 1204 Phone?

The BigTel 1204 is a DECT phone, which stands for Digital Enhanced Cordless Technology. This is a cordless phone that works with your landline phone line.

While this type of phone allows you to roam in the house while you talk, it comes with one potential downside. It requires the user to press the green button to answer a call, which can sometimes be confusing for users who are accustomed to answering the phone by simply picking up the handset.

Will the BigTel 1204 Telephone Work with My Hearing Aid?

Yes, the BigTel 1204 works with most popular hearing aids. To use this phone with your hearing aid, simply set the hearing aid to "T" (telecoil) setting.

Does It Have a Visual Ring Indicator?

The BigTel 1204 Phone has a visual alert for incoming calls, which is ideal for the severely hearing impaired. Moreover, the phone also has visual and audio warning in case of low battery.

Is This Phone Suitable for the Visually Impaired?

The larger button size on the BigTel 1204 is ideal for those with visual impairments. The keypad also features a back-light to illuminate the buttons, making them easier to read, thus reducing the risk of telephone numbers being incorrectly dialled. This larger size is also suitable for anybody with reduced dexterity as the larger buttons are easier to manage than their smaller, traditional counterparts. The additional hands-free function will also reduce the need to hold onto the phone during use.

The telephone is fitted with an LCD back-lit large display screen. The display menu is available in six languages for increased usability, and enables dot-matrix text to be read clearly and easily.

Is This Phone Suitable for Those Suffering from Dementia?

The BigTel 1204 is a practical solution for anybody suffering from memory loss. It features a redial button for the last 15 numbers, which reduces the need for the same numbers to be repeatedly entered in succession. The built-in phone book will also help store up to 100 numbers within the handset for convenient dialling.

Does It Have Direct-Dial Memory Buttons?

The two direct-dial memory buttons, M1 and M2, allow you to save two of your most commonly used numbers. This is ideal for emergency situations, and users who might find it difficult to operate the phone book.

How Is the BigTel 1204 Powered?

The base unit needs to be connected to the mains, as well as to the telephone jack. The cordless handset runs on two rechargeable batteries, which are included with this purchase.

The handsets offer up to 10 hours of continuous use, and up to 100 hours of standby time. To recharge a handset, all you need to do is place it on the base.

Does This Phone Feature Caller ID?

Yes, this phone will work with your service provider's caller ID service. Names and numbers will be displayed clearly on the phone's dot matrix LCD screen.

Does This Phone Have a Boost Key?

Yes, this phone features a "boost" key to temporarily amplify the volume of the receiver. This is ideal for situations in which multiple users will be using the phone, allowing those with hearing impairment to boost their volume without affecting users on other calls.

Can I Connect Additional Handsets?

Yes, the BigTel Telephone can be connected with up to four total handsets per base. You will need to purchase the compatible BigTel 1201 Additional Handsets separately.

To make pairing up the base with extra handsets easier and more affordable for you, we've prepared money-saving bundles that include:
