Common Concerns from Seniors Buying an Amplified Phone

Posted by Carl Arnold on

We often get calls from seniors who have had their current phone for 20 years or so, but now need an amplified phone due to hearing loss. Often, they are scared to embrace new technology that is unfamiliar. The Phone Resource understands that concern and we specialize in individual, one-on-one service so you are more confident than ever with your amplified phone decision.

When searching on the internet, the options seem endless. So how do you figure out what will work best for you?

First, let’s consider a few facts about the phones that are available. All of the phones we offer are TIA-1083 Compliant. That means that our manufacturers such as Clarity, GeeMarc, and Amplicom have committed to manufacture phones that comply with the interference standard set by the Telecommunications Industry Association. This decreases the interference experienced by cordless phone users with hearing aids and cochlear implants. You will experience sound that is more clear and audible!

Second, you do NOT need special hook-ups in your home to set up an amplified phone. Some of our VCO products and TTY/TTD phones require a relay service, however, the standard amplified telephone does not. Just hook it up to the phone jack in your home and it's ready for use!

Third, The Phone Resource offers a 30-day warranty on all products. If you set up your phone and find that you don’t like it, or that it doesn’t suit your needs, just give us a call for a full refund or exchange within 30 days! Our goal is to make sure that you are completely satisfied!

Finally, we are here for you! We are committed to providing you with the most important information to make this decision. We will make sure that you are happy with the phone or device that you order and that it works for you. Complete satisfaction is our goal!

So now that we have broken down some of the facts, here’s what you should consider when visit our site:

  1. Do you want corded or cordless?
  2. What is your hearing impairment level?
  3. Do you need more than one phone?
  4. Do you need an answering machine?

By answering these questions, you will narrow down the choices to the product that will work best for you. Don’t let the amount of technology available overwhelm you. At The Phone Resource, we’re here to help you!
