91 Year old Great GrandMa requires an easy to use cordless phone! Her previous Panasonic cordless has done well but now just to small! Big is needed, big in everything. Big buttons, display/screen, big numbers, big sound. Doro specialise in this, don't they? Well this seems to fit the bill.
The screen IS backlight, the 'Volume Boost' does increase the earphone volume about double! The old Great One does always use it on speaker as she sometimes can't (quickly) find her ear. The audio is good, loud and clear. We programmed in all the required telephone numbers, only just two on M1 and M2, the rest recall from one key on the number pad - press and hold. It does not easily get messed up by inadvertently 'overprogramming'.Thank God.
BUT, now discovered, each handset has to be individually loaded with the numbers, unlike the Panasonic which stored it in the base ??.Not a problem really, we will do the bedroom phone next visit.
On first switch on they are ready to go as they come ready 'Dect paired'.
I need to read the book again to see if I can make it answer on pickup AND go straight to 'speaker phone'.
The charging contacts seem to work solidly, doing all that they are supposed to do. One make we tried from Asda was hopeless in this respect, and was not backlight, but on the box it was! (or looked like)
Yep! we are happy with our purchase, and the Doro 'mobile' cell phone we bought for Gt Nana has been great too.
