Does the Phone Light Up When Receiving a Call?
When an incoming call is detected, the red LED light at the top of each handset will illuminate. This light brightly and steadily flashes, clearly signifying that a call is on the line.
Is This Handset Easy to Use?
The AmpliDECT 295 Amplified Telephone is designed to be easy to use even for those who might find using a traditional cordless phone overwhelming. The "Auto Answer" function allows the user to be able to answer a call by simply picking up the handset from the charging cradle, without having to remember to press any buttons. This is ideal for users who are used to answering the phone this way.
If the handset is not on the charging cradle, however, you need to press either the green button or the speaker button to answer a call. Pressing the button twice activates the speakerphone.
Can I Set A Distinct Ring for Each Caller?
Yes, you can set a different ring for each caller in your phonebook, allowing the user to easily identify the caller from the ring alone. Each AmpliDECT 295 handset features five standard rings and five polyphonic rings, while the base itself features five standard rings. This provides plenty of room for customisation to ensure important numbers can have a distinct ring.
How Is the Extra Handset Powered?
The charging cradle needs to be connected to a mains via the power adaptor included with this purchase. The handset comes with a rechargeable battery pack. The battery will last for two days on standby, and allows for eight hours of continuous talk time.
