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.

What's Included with This Purchase?

This package includes the following items:

  • 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.

How Long is the Telephone Cord?

If mobility is an issue, the BigTel 40 is an ideal, long cord telephone. With an impressive 2 metre long cord, rest assured that whether you place your Amplicomms phone on a bedside table, cabinet or mobile table, your receiver can be used without fuss.

Can an Alternative Cord Cable Be Used?

Any alternative cord that uses the "RJ11" pin design will be compatible with your Amplicomms BigTel 40 Telephone. Simply unplug the standard cable from the back of the unit and replace with a new cord at both the unit and receiver end.

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.

Big tel 40
Tuesday, 3 May 2022  | 

Very confusing description was misleading. Should not have come under the generic heading with other speaker phones. As a result the phone is totally unsuitable and another phone will need to be bought that has an actual speaker option. This was therefore a waste of money.

Didn't work, poor response.
Friday, 25 February 2022  | 

Plugged it in and followed all the instructions. It didn't work.
Helpdesk very friendly and polite, but ultimately unable to assist as company policy inflexible, and required item to be returned for inspection before making a decision as to whether would provide a replacement.
This is very poor - was purchased for elderly relative (I imagine most are) and now have to buy a replacement to ensure there's a working solution while they 'check it'.
Had deliberately chosen to buy from British company as felt would get better service. Unfortunately not the case.
Should have taken my chances with Amazon.

Works well
Thursday, 24 February 2022  | 

Phone has 3 ringer sounds all of which could be heard with or without my hearing aids in.
Also, the receiver volume can be turned up so now I can hear clearly what is being said and with the flashing light even if there is other noise from a television etc I can still see it ringing.
I would recommend this to anyone thinking of buying such an item

UK aerial lead missing
Monday, 21 February 2022  | 

I have already sent a comment to you - have you not read it. The aerial lead does not fit UK sockets and when I phoned your help line the person was distinctly unhelpful. I then had to buy my own connection to the aerial point. The telephone now works but I was unimpressed with the lack of thought of enclosing the correct lead and non existent after care

Great product.
Sunday, 13 February 2022  | 

Bought this for an elderly relative after he couldn’t hear with or without hearing aids on his old telephone. Great phone he loved it and can now hear clearly, no more shouting on our calls. Great price too would definitely recommend.
