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.

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.

It ain't heavy

It's a very light phone, so I had to put sticky pads on it to stop it sliding around. Otherwise very good.

Highly recommended
Thursday, 7 January 2021  | 

I bought this for my father who is living with dementia, and has Has hearing loss for many years.
He has struggled over months in being able to type the whole number for friends and family, and well the use of the memory phone book on his previous phone was far too complicated.
This has been like a breath of fresh air for him. He is able to hear people much easier on the end of the phone, and once the large photo buttons were set up by myself he was able to make a call within seconds of it all set up and with very little instruction on how to do it. Itís nice and simple and easy to use. Which puts my mind at rest that he is now able to contact me or the people he loves with literally one press of a button.
The only point that isnít that easy is printing photos small enough for the picture buttons!!
This really has eased a worry for myself and my father- thank you

Call volume could be louder
Sunday, 29 November 2020  | 

The phone looks great and the incoming call ring is nice and loud.
The volume of the person speaking on the other end could do with being louder.
I didnít notice that there was no caller ID display either.
Easy to programme.

Works well

Generally very pleased - just would have liked the ring tone to be louder so easier to hear from a distance (even though there are lights on the machine which do catch the eye)
Very pleased with delivery time.

Just what was required
Sunday, 11 October 2020  | 

We needed a new 'big button' phone for an elderly relative who could do with (but didn't absolutely need) one-touch autodial but really needed louder sound from the phone. We didn't need speakerphone nor cordless. This phone does the job perfectly, giving the option of louder sound, with controllability. First class product.

Losing sight mum was no longer able to see the dial on her phone or our numbers and would call strangers occasionally. Now her ability to have quick contact with all of us has improved dramatically.
