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 Amplicomms BigTel 40 plus Telephone
  • 1 x Handset
  • 1 x Helix handset cable
  • 1 x Telephone connection cable
  • 1 x Wall installation bracket
  • 1 x User manual

Key Information

  • Receiver Volume: Up to 40dB
  • Ringing Volume: Up to 90dB
  • Hearing aid compatible
  • 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.

A great idea but unfortunately had to be returned
Wednesday, 7 July 2021  | 

One of my 84 year old parents is suffering from Alzheimer's Dementia and the other from poor eyesight/hearing issues so I thought the Amplicomms BigTel 40 Plus Big Button Amplified Corded Telephone with Photo Buttons would be ideal for them, particularly in an emergency.

The ordering process was quick and easy, and it was delivered quickly too.

It's a great phone, easy to set up and I liked the idea of the photo buttons. Unfortunately, my Mum (hearing/eyesight issues) struggled to hear even after it had been set to max db and asked if it could be put on speaker like her existing one and my Dad just seemed confused so I had to return it.

The returns process was also quick and easy, and money refunded within a couple of days. Would definitely consider buying from this company again.

What an improvement
Tuesday, 6 July 2021  | 

I bought this amplified telephone for an elderly relative. She suffers from impaired hearing and struggles with her sight. She already had a corded handset for hearing impaired people but could never hear me when I rang. I installed the new phone this weekend and she can now hear when I ring albeit with the extra 40dB addition on maximum. The big button one press speed dial with easily identifiable buttons also works well. I can recommend this product. Delivery was quick and the set up very easy.

We gave my nana her new phone yesterday after she has been having issues with glue ear as well as being very hard of hearing normally anyway, her hearing aid is not working and she has not been able to hear anyone on the phone for about 2 months which is very isolating for her. Well yesterday she tried her new phone and rang my uncle in Australia which is something she would usually do but recently they couldn’t speak and she cried because she could actually hear him. She’s absolutely over the moon with the phone. So happy I bought it.

Dreadful feedback noise
Tuesday, 15 June 2021  | 

I bought this for my elderly father in law. I'm afraid it's no good. If the volume is above about 4, when you press the amplify boost button it makes a dreadful whistling feedback noise. He wasn't able to use and we'll be sending it back.
