Doro 5030 Mobile Phone for the Hard of Hearing
For the elderly and the hard of hearing, standard mobile phones can be difficult to use and not loud enough to help you maintain a conversation, making it harder for you to stay in touch with friends and family. The Doro 5030 Mobile Phone for the Hard of Hearing has been developed for maximum ease of use, with its simple classic design and a loud receiver volume.
Who Is the Doro 5030 Mobile Suitable For?
The Doro 5030 Phone is designed to be easy to use, which makes it especially suitable for the elderly, those living with dementia, the visually impaired and the hard of hearing. A large, bright and clear screen makes the menus easy to read and navigate, and the textured finish aids grip.
Additionally, the phone features large high contrast keys, making recognition and pressing easier. To aid use even further, the buttons are widely spaced apart, making each individual key easier to hit correctly.

How Easy to Set Up Is This Mobile?
As the Doro 5030 was designed specially for the elderly and the hard of hearing, it is exceptionally easy to set up and use. All you need to do is:
- Insert the SIM card and battery
- Charge the phone. It takes approximately three hours to fully charge the battery from empty

How Loud Is the 5030 Mobile Phone?
Ideal for hard of hearing individuals, the receiver volume of this amplified mobile phone can be adjusted up to 35dB, which is approximately three times as loud as a standard phone. The phone also features an extra loud ringer at 83dB (measured at one metre), helping you ensure that you can hear it ringing more easily.
Is This Mobile Compatible with a Hearing Aid?
The Doro 5030 Mobile Phone is hearing aid compatible. The standard for hearing aid compatibility contains two types of ratings: M and T. This mobile phone meets the M3/T4 level rating.
What Is the Assistance Button?
To help you get the help you need when you need it, the Doro 5030 features an Assistance Button (located on the back of the phone, where the camera would normally be). When activated, the phone sends an emergency text message to all numbers on a list, and starts dialling the numbers one at a time to help you get help fast. On top of this, the button automatically activates the speakerphone, which is vital if you're unable to hold the phone to your ear.
Can I Make an Emergency Call Even Without a SIM Card?
As long as the phone is switched on, it is always possible to place an SOS call by entering the main local emergency number for your present location followed by pressing the Call Button. Some networks accept calls to emergency numbers without a valid SIM card. We recommend you contact your service provider for more information.
