Summary: I have a implanted difibulater. I send over land line a reading directly from the device, automatically. It an analog device so, it requires and analog phone. The land line can handle analog. Cell phones cannot.
Summary: I purchased this phone for my grandma who recently turned 90. She has trouble hearing and does not like to wear her hearing aid. She loves this phone because when she presses the boost button on the phone she can actually hear the person on the other end.
Summary: This is a great product. I am hearing impaired with a hearing aid. When this phone rings I can hear it from another room. The boost button raises the volume of the caller so I can carry on a conversation. Buy it you will be glad you did, as I am.
Summary: The phone was assembled incorrectly in that it would not cradle properly, forcing us (at first) to either tape the cradle to the base, making it difficult to pick up if the phone rang, or not, in which case the line would not be accessible for incoming calls (constant busy signal). These types of phones are becoming increasingly hard to find, and this is the 2nd we have purchased (the first would not ring). Therefore, we were really frustrated when this occurred.
Pros: Corded, annoying ring. Yes, the annoying ring is a pro for me, I installed this in my busy shop in an airport, we spend all day filtering out noise, and no one ever hears the phone ringing. Or they would not charge it. This thing, you know it's ringing, and you can't lose it. The light helps a little, I guess.
Cons: None, did exactly what I needed it to do for a reasonable price.
