How Easy to Use Is This Amplified Telephone?

If you insert a compatible external memory (micro SD) card into the DOro 6030, you can change the default storage location. This will allow you to save more files on your device, such as pictures and videos.
Does It Work with Bluetooth?
Yes, the Doro 6030 features Bluetooth 3.0. This means you can effortlessly connect it to other Bluetooth compatible devices, such as headsets or other phones.
How Does the Assistance Button Work?
The assistance button allows easy access to contact pre-defined help numbers in case of an emergency. To make an assistance call, all you need to do is press and hold the assistance button for three seconds, or press it twice within one second.
The assistance call begins after a delay of five seconds, in which time you can prevent a possible false alarm by pressing the red button. An assistance text message is sent to all recipients; the first recipient from the list is called, and if that call goes unanswered for 25 seconds, the next number is called. Calling is repeated three times, or until the call is answered.
Does This Phone Feature Predictive Text?
Yes, this phone features predictive text. When you start writing a word, the phone will predict common words with the same letters at the beginning, helping to speed your text messages.
What Happens If the Emergency Call Goes to Voicemail?
The assistance function can be configured so that the recipient of the call must press 0 (zero) to confirm there is a real person on the other end of the line, and stop the alarm sequence. If the recipient doesn't press 0 within 60 seconds, the call will be disconnected and the next number in the sequence will be called. If the recipient presses 0 within 60 seconds, the call is confirmed and no further call attempts are made.
