BT Big Button phone - great for elderly father

My father needed an additional phone in his bedroom, so that I can ring him in the mornings as a wake-up call. There was only one to get: exactly the same as his existing phone in the living room. He cannot cope with a new 'simplified' tv remote control, let alone a phone that's different from the one he is used to. This one does the job but it's biggest failing is that the sound in the handset is too quiet for the hard-of-hearing.

Does the job!

Great for my mum, easy to use, programmed in 3 most used numbers so now easy for her to call me at the touch of a button. Adjustable volume and nice big buttons for for failing sight & ears.

What are the batteries for?

I have this phone and it works ok without batteries. Please don't say it's in case of a power cut, as all phones take their power from the telephone socket.

2 Answers

The hands-free option doesn't work if the batteries are removed.

I could be wrong but it doesn't seem to use the batteries for amplification, only for the control circuitry.



I have investigated this for you and cannot offer any explanation as to why the BT Big Button 200 Corded Telephone requires batteries. The only possible reason I can consider is that the "LOUD" function and speaker phone may require extra power to work properly.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

does it have a visual display

sorry probably a dumb question but looking at photos of the BT Big Button 200 corded telephone its not clear if it has a visual display, useful for showing all those long numbers whilst dialling them!

Hello, thank you for your question regarding the BT Big Button 200 Corded Telephone.

Having checked the user manual, I can confirm that this item requires 4xAA batteries, which are pre-installed in the phone. In order to activate the batteries you are required to pull the plastic tab from the underside of the phone.
