How Loud Is This Amplified Telephone?

The BigTel 1280 is an ideal telephone for anybody suffering from hearing difficulties, as it features various volume-adjustable settings. The receiver volume can be increased up to 30dB to help improve the quality of telephone conversations, ensuring that the person on the other end can be clearly heard. This is 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, a benefit for anybody who has difficulty hearing the phone ring. The included mute button ensures the phone won't disturb the user when it is activated, and the hearing aid compatibility means the conversation can be transmitted directly to the hearing aid for more efficient listening.

Is It Suitable for the Visually Impaired?

The larger button size on the BigTel 1280 is ideal for those with visual impairments. The keypad also features a back light to illuminate the buttons, making them easier to read to reduce the risk of incorrect dialling.

This larger button size is also suitable for anybody with reduced dexterity, as they are easier to manage than smaller, traditional dialling buttons. Moreover, the handsfree function will also reduce the need to hold onto the phone during use.

How Easy to Use Is It?

The BigTel 1280 is a practical solution for anybody suffering from memory loss. It features a redial button for the last 15 numbers, reducing the need for the same numbers to be repeatedly entered. The built-in phone book will also help store up to one hundred numbers for convenient dialling.

The user also has the ability to programme two speed-dial numbers of their choosing. The buttons are labelled "M1" and "M2", and provide practical options for setting frequently dialled numbers such as family members or carers.

How Is This Amplified Telephone Powered?

The base unit needs to be plugged into the mains at all times, while the cordless handset is supplied with rechargeable batteries. To charge the batteries, simply place the handset back on the base. The battery is good for up to 10 hours of continuous talk time before it needs recharging.

Does This Phone Include an Answering Machine?

The digital answering machine features extra-large keys for easier operation, and can record up to 15 minutes of answering machine messages to help ensure you don't miss important messages. It also includes a two-digit LED counter indicating the number of messages, and offers remote interrogation with PIN code for secure access.

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.

Can I Connect More Than One Handset?

Yes, the base can be paired with up to five additional BigTel 1201 Handsets. This allows you to place as many handsets as you need around the home, so that the phone is always only a hand's reach away.

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

Can I Use It with My Hearing Aid?

Yes, this phone works with most popular hearing aids. To use it with your hearing aid, simply switch the hearing aid to the "T" setting.

What Warranty Does This Phone Have?

The BigTel 1280 Big Button Amplified Cordless Telephone is supplied with a two-year manufacturer's warranty.
