  • Disappointed with Phone
    Reviewed by Phone - July 24, 2021

    Based on this device being targeted to Seniors we were very disappointed with the phones Call Blocking Feature.... the first day my parents had the phone they accidentaly Blocked all the kids... The Call Blocking feature is activiate by the up arrow button on the cordless phone this is just above the Speaker Phone button. They managed to hit the call blocking on all 6 kids the first day and we could not disable this feature. The base unit is reasonably good however the call blocking feature should also be a feature that can be turned off with some sort of security code.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Not well designed for seniors with health issues
    Reviewed by B - November 1, 2021

    The phone unfortunately has a blocker feature button that is too easy to hit. My father who is 88 years old and in a long term care facility with a lot of health issues has accidentally blocked all the memory calls which happen to be family members. Also the amount of rings is limited to 6 times (although it cannot go beyond 4). There is no way my father can get to the phone in time if he is more than 20 feet from the phone. The decibel levels that control the sounds that calls out numbers is way too high and unfortunately is the minimum default. The only solution is to turn off the sound completely. Otherwise the phone is fine.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Specs not entirely clear
    Reviewed by Disappointed - December 8, 2019

    I bought this phone (online) for my mother, who is a senior, because of the many useful features. I was shocked when it arrived to realize that photos cannot be digitally uploaded. In fact, that is not a digital display on the phone - you need to cut out and attach physical photos to the speed dial buttons! The specs say you can "attach" photos, which is the common way to refer to uploading a digital photo. In addition, there is no clear way to access saved numbers, aside from the 8 buttons. What if a person has more than 8 contacts? For all of the technological benefits of this phone, there should be a digital screen for easy access to multiple contacts. It's absence should be explicitly stated in the online information, particularly since it's difficult to determine this from an online photo.
