Amplicomms BigTel 202 Big Button Amplified Cordless Twin DECT Telephone : Not an older person

I’d have given five stars but a well-implemented dect phone with lots of features is let down by the volume and boost buttons on the side. They are far too easily activated unintentionally. I notice that it doesn’t ring immediately on an incoming call – not until after the first two beats when compared with a wired phone on the same line.

Purchased for aged relative with visual and hearing difficulty. Telephone fits all requirements and is reatively easy to use. Two memory buttons have given her confidence in the phone should she be in a panic or forget other ways of calling. Adjustments to volume of phone also useful. Well pleased with the facilities.

Second phone not working-request replacement under 2 year quarantee. Here are the specifications for the Amplicomms BigTel 202 Big Button Amplified Cordless Twin DECT Telephone:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.

  • Extra large dot matrix lcd display with large characters and bright backlit display

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great for those with hearing loss
  • Really Good, Really Solid.
  • Big Button Phone

Very good phone for the hard of hearing. I bought this phone for my elderly parents as their hearing was getting worse and l wanted a phone that they could hear ringing and also hear who ever spoke to them with the option of pressing the boost button on to hear more louder. This phone fits the bill perfectly,the buttons are large enough to see. The instruction book was straightforward and not complicated, although when the trip switch switch off and then put back on it necessitate the removal of the batteries from the back of the phone and then put back in to get it working again. L think this is common problem with cordless phones. My parents are happy with this phone more so with me because when l am phoning in them they can at least hear the phone and listen to my conservation. Also there is a light on the phone which flashes when someone is ringing you.

Ordered for elderly lady with hearing problems. We charged them up on arrival then instructed her in their use. She understood and spent the morning calling family and friends and was able to have a proper conversation at last. Early days into reliability, but first impressions are great.

    These phones are excellent for those who wear a hearing aid or need. These phones are excellent for those who wear a hearing aid or need a volume boost. I wish when i ordered i had got the three set as i wanted another hand set and have been unable to get one because they seem to be permanently out of stock/unavailable.

    These were a god send, my mother is elderly and very hard of hearing, she wears two hearing aids, but it was so hard to hear me on the phone even when it was up loud and on speaker. These phones work in conjunction with her hearing aids and she can hear everything i say which is a big help to her and me. Also the numbers are spread out and large which makes it very easy to dial numbers. Easy to work and the instructions were very clear.

      1. Tones are not too high pitched and audible. Tones are not too high pitched and audible to my wife who has tinitus. The only qualm is the side mounted plume control which can be activated accidentally whilst answering the phone.

    In conjuntion with the amplicomms 480 this makes for a complete house system with easy to use and set up. These satellite units are just as loud as the main 480 base, perfect for those elderly folk or those hard of hearing.

    Bought these along with main phone. Once first was set the other two followed. My only complaint would be adding to directory , we had to set up on all three phones and would have been better if we only did once. Still very new so we might find a way.

    Only had it three days so it is a bit early to review, hence the 3 stars.

    1. I bought these for my mum she is very pleased with them, the amplifier for her is great and as she is 85 yrs old now she picked up how to use them straight away.

    The sound could be better, the volume is same as my old phones but the extra amplification is excellent as i use hearing aids. Easy to put in numbers to the phone book and to copy on to other handset, two buttons m1/2 for numbers you use frequently.
