Rated 5 out of 5 by MeeTwo Excellent Phone For Older People
I got this phone for my 92 year old mom who has trouble hearing but doesn't want to admit it. She has been having trouble hearing and understanding callers and since most of her visits these days are over the phone it had become a terrible source of frustration for her. She would blame the other for not 'speaking clearly' or 'speaking too softly'. Well, all that has changed since I got her this phone. You have the ability to control the volume at which you hear your caller at this end but even more remarkably you can also boost the volume for the person at the other end should they also be slightly hard of hearing! There is another 'boost' button to make the volume extra loud at this end as well. And there is more! Not only can you raise the volume, you can also adjust the tonality, deeper bass or higher frequency, depending on the user's specific hearing issues. The numbers, which light up, are LARGE and easy to punch and the phone speaks the numbers as you dial them, making dialing mistakes easy to catch and a thing of the past. Another big plus is that it is lightweight and because it's cordless, she doesn't have to drag a phone with a long cord around all day, risking tripping on it. I have found it holds a charge very well and only place it on the cradle every couple of days, depending on how much she's been using it. All in all, one of the best purchases I've ever made from the Q and needless to say my mom loves her new phone!
