Amplicomms BigTel 40 Plus Big Button Amplified Corded Telephone with Photo Buttons

For the hard of hearing or visually impaired, or for anybody suffering from memory loss, everyday tasks such as using a telephone can become a constant struggle. Designed with these difficulties in mind, the Amplicomms BigTel 40 Plus Big Button Amplified Corded Telephone with Big Buttons is a corded telephone with adjustable volume and larger buttons, offering the added ability to programme photo buttons to assist with memory issues.

  • 1 x Handset
  • 1 x Helix handset cable
  • 1 x Telephone connection cable

  • 1 x User manual

Key Information

  • No power cord needed

How Loud is the BigTel 40 Receiver?

The BigTel 40 Plus is an ideal telephone for anybody suffering with hearing difficulties, as it features various volume-adjustable settings. The receiver volume can be increased up to 40dB, which is roughly 8x louder than a standard phone receiver. This will be ensure the user can clearly hear every word said, which is particularly important if sensitive information or medical advice is being delivered.

How Loud is the Ringer?

The ringer volume can be adjusted up to 90dB, which is a booming volume suitable for those with severe hearing loss. While ringing, the phone will also illuminate a bright LED light, further helping those with hearing difficulties to notice an incoming call.

Easier to See

The larger size of the buttons on the BigTel 40 Plus is ideal for those with visual impairments. The big button design means that the numbers will be easier to read, reducing the risk of telephone numbers being incorrectly dialled. This larger size is also suitable for anybody with reduced dexterity as they are easier to manage than smaller, traditional dialling buttons.

Is the BigTel 40 Plus Telephone Hearing Aid Compatible?

Featuring a premium receiver, the telephone is perfectly adapted for hearing aids, and is compatible with most commercially available hearing aids. However, due to the wide range of hearing aids available, there is no guarantee that the telephone will function problem-free with every model.

Does the Phone Light Up When Ringing?

The telephone is fitted with an LED light, which flashes when there is an incoming call. This light provides a bright visual alert to indicate that the phone is ringing, offering an additional aid for telephone use.

Ideal for Memory Loss

In addition to its visual and audial benefits, the BigTel 40 Plus is also a practical solution for anybody suffering from memory loss. It features a redial button, which reduces the need for the same numbers to be repeatedly entered in succession. 

The user also has the ability to programme up to ten speed-dial numbers of their choosing. The phone features six photo buttons, which will provide a visual aid for remembering the programming of the buttons. This provides a practical option for programming frequently dialled numbers such as family members or carers.

Does This Phone Need to Be Plugged Into Mains Power?

The Amplicomms BigTel 40 Plus Big Button Amplified Corded Telephone is exceptionally easy to use, and does not require electricity to work. To set it up, all you need to do is connect the telephone as illustrated in the diagram below. Only use the telephone connection line supplied, as the equipment may not function if another telephone connection line is used.

Are Amplified Cordless Phone Sets Available?

If you require the same functionality of the BigTel 40, but for use between different rooms of the home, a cordless system may be more appropriate. We would recommend the AmpliDECT 595 Cordless Amplified Phone System for this purpose, as it includes an extra-loud receiver as well as the ability to program nine one-touch memory keys.

Can This Phone Be Wall Mounted?

Yes, this phone is supplied with a wall mounting bracket, and can be easily wall mounted. In order to properly mount the phone on your wall, two screws and a screwdriver will be required.

Technical Specifications of the BigTel 40 Plus

  • Adjustable ringer volume up to 90dB

Bought for my 97 yr old mother who is hearing and sight impaired. Very easy for her to use and impressively loud enough for her.

Cannot get 90 decibels or anywhere near on the ringing volume which is a shame as the photo buttons are great for my mum and she can hear when having a conversation now. I did ask if I was missing something other than the side slide and am also disappointed not to have had a reply so it is not 100 percent fit for purpose as it is .

I work for AgeUk and helped purchase this telephone for a client. Heís hard of hearing and much needed an amplified telephone with large pre dial buttons. 15 minutes to set up with his required numbers and a test for getting the right settings for his hearing. Delivery was 3 days and free. Would definitely recommend this telephone.

Bought for my 92 year old mum
Thursday, 14 October 2021  | 

she is happy with the phone as she found it difficult to hear people on the phone and she likes to chat. She set it up herself but had a few questions about the amplifier so she phoned up and the company and they explained everything to her.

OK BUT
Monday, 11 October 2021  | 

Phone is ok & louder than a normal phone. Bought for my aunty who is a bit hard of hearing, but when the red loudness button is pressed the phone squeals with feedback. She also has macular degeneration and cannot see the photo's inserted in the quick dial buttons, or the red button. Other than that, yes it's ok.
