Summary: This is a tuff one to review. I got this unit to replace a failing wireless phone for my ooma service. I bought it based upon the reviews and well for me at least i have been disappointed. PROS: 1: love the feature to increase the sound. i am hard of hearing and many phones are two quiet. 2: love the increased size of this unit. a larger foot print 3: feels well built 4: larger buttons.
Summary: I ordered this phone for my 95 year-old father who is legally blind and hearing-impaired. I had it sent to his home and I haven't yet seen the phone (I live in a different state) but he loves it. Also, I can hear his voice more clearly on this phone, compared to the one we replaced. Update, June 2011: visited my father for his 96th birthday and saw (and used) the phone. I like the feel of it in my hand and the voice quality is excellent.
Summary: My one goal in purchasing this phone was the amplification factor and that is great. However, it is sometimes hard to answer a call because the flash button won't engage or has to be pushed in an exact way or on a certain spot. I would however purchase this phone again because of the clarity of the caller. I no longer have to ask someone to repeat themselves or totally miss what they're saying.
Summary: THIS WAS NOT AN EXPANDABLE HANDSET TO A PREVIOUS ORDER, THIS FACT WAS NOT CLEAR AT THE TIME IT WAS ORDERED. THIS WAS RETURNED. AMAZON ACKNOWLEDGED RECEIPT OF THE RETURN AND I AM WAITING FOR A CREDIT TO MY CREDIT CARD.
Summary: The volume of this phone for receiving/making calls is excellent. The boost button really increases the volume even more. There is one problem however, in that the ringer on this phone cannot be turned up loud enough. My mother will not hear it ringing if she is in the other room. She has hearing loss that is on the high-end of moderate. Unfortunately, I will be returning it. It is a really nice phone otherwise.
