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 corded telephone with an answering machine, plus three additional cordless handsets:

How Loud Is This Telephone System?

These phones are ideal for anybody with hearing difficulties, as they offer extra-loud volume settings. The ringer volume reaches 80dB, while the receiver volume provides up to 30dB of volume. Not only will this be useful for those who struggle to hear traditional telephones when in a different room in the house, but it will also prevent information during conversations from being misheard or misunderstood.

Where Can I Use the BigTel 1483 System?

As the BigTel 1483 bundle comprises two cordless phones with a cradle and a corded phone, it can be utilised in a wide range of scenarios. For anybody who prefers to remain seated by the phone, and for those who may have trouble locating the phone when it rings, affixing the corded in one position will help ensure that it can always be found in the most suitable location.

The cordless phones are ideal for carrying around the home. This is particularly useful for anybody who likes to keep busy during phone calls, and will also mean that the phone can be taken to the bedroom or similar, helping to ensure that help can always be called for from around the home.

Does This Phone Have a Hands-Free Function?

During a call, press the speaker button on the corded phone, or the green call button once again on the cordless handset. To deactivate the hands-free function, press the same button again.

Is the BigTel 1483 Suitable for the Visually Impaired?

The larger size of the buttons makes it easier to dial numbers. This means that there is a reduced risk of numbers being incorrectly dialled, and will be ideal for anybody with reduced dexterity. The bigger buttons are also useful for those with visual impairments, as the numbers on each button are easier to read compared to those of traditional phone keypads.

Can I Connect It to My Hearing Aid?

Yes, your BigTel 1483 Telephones will work with most popular hearing aids. However, given the wide range of hearing aids available, we are unable to guarantee that your phone will function fully with every hearing aid.

Does the BigTel 1480 Corded Phone Have an Answering Machine?

Yes, the BigTel 1480 has a built-in digital answering machine with a total recording capacity of 15 minutes. You can operate the answering machine at the corded phone or from each registered handset.

Is the Screen Easy to Read?

Anybody with visual impairments may benefit from both phones, as they include amber-backlit LCD display screens. They are easy to read, allowing both incoming calls and dialled numbers to be easily identified.

How Is the BigTel 1483 Powered?

The base of this telephone needs to be connected to the mains for all functions to work properly. The cordless handsets are powered with rechargeable batteries, which are charged when you replace the handset on the cradle.

Does This Phone Have a Boost Key?

Yes, this phone features a "boost" key to temporarily amplify the volume of the receiver, on both the corded base and the wireless handset. 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.

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 Add an Extra Handset?

Yes, you can add up to four additional handsets to the BigTel 1480 Corded Phone. In this case, with three handsets already included, you can connect up to one more additional handset.
