    I purchased this phone for my dad, who has hearing aids (and always seems to be having problems with them) and is in a nursing home. For an older person who may have trouble figuring out phones with lots programmable buttons/features, this phone was a really good choice. The phone had features that I wanted (easy keypad, speed dial buttons, volume control, amplification/clarity features), but not lots of extras that I know he either won’t use or understand how to use. The speed dial buttons are easy to figure out (a family member programmed them for him) and are helpful for him, since he finds remembering numbers (or locating them/dialing them in) difficult. The best part of this phone is that I can now have an almost normal conversation with him, whereas before we used to spend a good deal of time repeating ourselves, then sometimes giving up. In fact, I was pleasantly shocked to have the first conversation with him and find that instead of asking me what I said, he just continued right on with a reply to what I was saying! I do wish it had a speakerphone feature, but the fact that we can have a normal conversation makes up for that.

    This phone does have easy to operate controls and easy to see number pad.
    My mother has no problem hearing the at her end she just adjusts the volume to suit her. However often times the party at the other end of the line gets audio distrotion or my mothers voice drops out completly. It’s kind of annoying for her to have to repeat herself all the time. The operators manual says to disconnect other devices on the line like: phones, answering system, Fax units etc. and it may resolve the problem, well it dosen’t, besides this is not even a reasonable request – take everything off line except the Ameriphone?? get real! This problem is consitant with every one she talks to. In spite of what others have said I’m not to impressed with this phone I expected more for my money. I do not recommend it if people at the other end can’t understand you what’s the point.
