How Loud Is This Amplified Telephone?

The BigTel 48 is an ideal telephone for anybody suffering with hearing difficulties, as it features various volume-adjustable settings. Both the receiver and ringer volumes can be increased, helping improve the quality of telephone conversations by ensuring that the person on the other end can be clearly heard. This will be particularly important if sensitive information or medical advice is being delivered, as it minimises the risk of the information being misheard.

Is This Phone Suitable for the Visually Impaired?

The larger button size on the BigTel 48 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.

The telephone is fitted with a dot-matrix display screen, which displays the phone numbers dialled. With the addition of an LED light, which flashes when there is an incoming call, the phone provides a bright alert as an additional visual aid.

Is This Phone Suitable for Those with Dementia?

The BigTel 48 is a practical solution for anybody suffering from memory loss. It features a redial button, which reduces the need for the same number to be repeatedly entered in succession.

The user also has the ability to programme three direct-dial numbers of their choosing. The buttons are ideal for programming frequently dialled numbers, such as family members or carers, and can also be used to programme emergency numbers.

Is the BigTel 48 Hearing Aid Compatible?

Yes, this telephone has a special circuit working on the basis of induction for transmitting speech to hearing aids. To use it with a hearing aid, please set your hearing aid to "T".

How Is the BigTel 48 Amplified Big Button Telephone Powered?

The BigTel 48 needs to be connected to the mains, and also requires a battery for the display to function correctly. The base of the telephone needs to be connected to the mains at all times, while the battery compartment is to be found on the underside of the telephone. The battery must be changed when the display is no longer visible.

Is the BigTel 48 Amplified Big Button Telephone Easy to Set Up?

Yes, the BigTel 48 was designed to be easy to set up by anyone, and doesn't require any professional help. All you need to do before you start using it is:

  1. Connect the receiver to the base unit. First take one end of the spiral cable and plug it into the socket at the bottom of the receiver, then plug the other end into the socket on the left-hand side of the base unit.
  2. Insert the battery in the battery compartment, which can be found on the underside of the telephone.
  3. Connect the telephone cable to the telephone jack and the telephone socket on the rear of the telephone. The telephone works using the Touch-Tone Dialling.

Thank you for the prompt delivery of the phone, especially at this difficult time. The volume for me to hear someone speaking is very good and I can alter it up or down.
