The Binatone Speakeasy SM400 Big Button Mobile Phone

Binatone's range of Speakeasy mobile phones are designed with simplicity in mind, making them the ideal choice for anyone looking for a phone without the fuss.

Designed for the seniors market

Large buttons for easy navigation and dialling, a 2 inch display with large print that is easy to recognise, and easy-to-use menus make the Speakeasy SM400 mobile phone ideal for anyone with visual impairments.

Talking numbers help the user to hear the numbers that are being dialled, making them perfect for the partially-sighted, while the torch function with switch helps ensure safety when it is needed the most.

The SM400 features a desktop charger and an extra-loud speakerphone, so it can be used easily by those with hearing difficulties. It is also hearing aid-compatible, ensuring no interference or whistling when being used with a hearing aid.

The SM400 features three direct dial memories for easy access to your favourite or most often used contacts.

The Speakeasy SM400 also features an emergency SOS button, which enables the user to store five important numbers and activate them simply and quickly in the event of an emergency. Once the SOS button is activated, the chosen numbers are dialled in turn until one number picks up. If the number to pick up is a mobile phone, then the SM400 also sends a confirmation text.

Full of simple and useful features

The SM400 comes complete with a built-in camera to capture those pleasurable moments, and includes a 300-name and number phonebook.

The phone can hold up to 100 SMS messages, and has a battery life of up to 180 hours standby and 4 hours talk time.

With a stylish design and a colour LCD display, the SM400 makes a great back-up phone for when you want to leave your smartphone at home on a night out or when on holiday.

Built with dual-band technology, the phone is unlocked to all mobile networks excluding Three.

4.0 out of 5 stars Binatone SM400 Big Button GSM Mobile Phone 11 Nov 2013
I bought this for my elderly uncle who is hard of hearing and he says the phone is loud enough without his hearing aid in. The big buttons are good for him too and the SOS set up is brilliant (we have yet to trial it but it's all set up ready in the event of him needing urgent help). The only one fault is that button 4 is rather sticky and needs a lot of pressing to respond. I have pre-set all his numbers now so he shouldn't need it. It's neat and bright, and the charging cable plugs in to the docking stand so he can see it charging and when it's not charging he can use the stand (unplugged) to keep the phone to hand.

Normally I like my toys to have all the bells and whistles to play with but for some reason I am just not into phones, all I want to do is make one or two phone calls per weeks and the same useage of texts. I have a very occasional need for a camera, let's say once or twice a year, and that's all the use I make of it. No internet use at all. About 6 months ago I bought a phone, about the 6th or 7th I've had over the years, each more elaborate than the one before. I won't mention the name but it was so complicated I would have thought NASA could have used it to run a space mission. I won't bore you with a lot of detail but it was horrendously complex to use, to the point where I really couldn't be bothered to learn how. The reason I bought it was that it offered the facility to increase the size of the text font. This appealed to me because of late I'm having to put my reading glasses before I can read the screen, or see which buttons I'm pressing to type a text. Eventually I lost my rag with it and decided to see if I could find something which fits my need better. This is it! Dead simple to use. The screen has nice easy to read text, so do the buttons, and the buttons are nice and big for my big fat clumsy thumbs, so I can text without my specs. Same applies to making calls. There is a good loudspeaker so I can hear it by the side of a busy road. And I'm revelling in it.
So if you want basic simplicity like I do, I heartily recommend this one.
Or if you want a phone for your dear old relative who hasn't had a mobile before and might have difficulty learning to use a more sophisticated phone, I would think this is ideal. If so check out the SOS facility, sounds like it could be a life-saver, but I don't use it so I cannot advise.

I bought this phone to replace a trusty but very old Nokia dumb phone. It arrived promptly and in good order, however I couldn't get it to work as the battery was dead (even after the required charging). I contacted the seller and received an immediate reply, saying he would put a replacement battery in the post. A few days later sure enough the new battery arrived and bingo the phone worked straight away. This was the week before Christmas and the replacement arrived by Christmas Eve! Desire IT was prompt, polite and friendly - What more can you ask for?

The phone itself is good value and I am very happy with it. Though quite lightweight the buttons have a good feel, the menu system is simple. It is supplied with a mains charger, USB cable and a handy table-top charger pod. The torch is a very useful bonus though the camera is only 2 megapixel and not good in low light it but is just fine for what I need it for. This is a good basic phone with useful extras and definitely worth the money plus Desire IT offer great customer service.

4.0 out of 5 stars does the job 2 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
I agree with Mr Colley it is easy to use and does the job. There is far too much kit on the market including cars that have gadgets
which no body uses because they are far too complicated for the majority.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great......BUT.... 19 Mar 2014
By panic66

I would of given this 5 stars but for the issue with either the battery or the phone it self. Once you charged the phone, then took a call it would cut the call and say the battery needed to be recharged.

Luckily i did a lot of research and had read on the comments section some one else had a similar issue, so was not totally surprised. And add to the fact that Amazon was absolutely brilliant in getting me a replacement handset by the next day! they picked up the faulty one and dropped off a new by 12.30pm the next.....freaking top banana! that's why we shop at amazon...

Anyway the new handset works brilliantly and is easy to use for my old man.....if it ain't made of wood or steam powered he hasn't a bloody clue how to use it......Good point is the SOS system, 5 numbers can imputed here, and there are 3 easy to read access buttons where you can input 3 numbers they are most likely to use, so no fiddling with the contacts list.

Set up of the handset is easy and adjusting the volume and ringtones easy peasy......other than the first issue i am really impressed with this......buy one!
