Good Experience

Bought this phone for my dad. He is 97 years old in August.He finds this model has better volume and sound than the previous model. He hasn't complained about it yet, so it must be good Show details

Faultless customer service

Purchased direct and the customer service was faultless. Answered all my questions in one call. Easy to use and set up for my mum who is not tech savvy. Thank you Olitech, will definitely recommend. Show details

OK phone poor battery life in comparison to the 3G version that it replaced

Previously had the 3G version of this phone and battery lasted almost a week. Keep in mind this phone was purchased for my Mum who is over 90 years of age and uses the phone - perhaps 2-3 time a week for a total call time of around 5-10 minutes. The new 4G version battery lasts around 1.5 days. Very disappointing. Show details

A great alternative to a mobile phone

My mother is finding this phone a lot easier to use than her previous mobile. Technology is hard for her to grasp, and this phone is very much like a landline so not as much of a challenge! She won't use all the functions, but will cope with making and receiving calls, which is all we ask for. Show details

Almost gets 5 stars

Almost gets 5 stars but fails in three main areas for seniors
1. Screen is too small, need to be twice the size
2. Text is far too small
3. Contrast colours of Green background with pale black text not very distinct Show details ·  1

Brilliant phone

Bought the Easytel 4G Home phone directly from Olitech store. Customer service fantastic. The product set up ready to go from the store and for Mum who is 96yr with early dementia it has been perfect. Show details

Excellent phone for the hearing impaired and elderly

My 93yo friend went into a Nursing Home and an IT friend got her a mobile phone. We persevered for 2 years but she couldn't get the hang of it. My husband found the Olitech EasyTel 4G Homephone and I felt it was worth the chance as my friend was becoming more isolated and the Nursing Home had no phone lines to rooms.
This was soooo easy to install. I have put some of her friends' numbers in and my friend USES it! She could hear without hearing aids AND the loud ring is easily heard. The only downside is that we can only make it ring for 30 seconds. By the time she gets out of bed or out of her recliner, the 30 seconds is up!
An excellent phone and the Nursing Home has taken the details so they can let future residents' families of it. Show details

Great phone for the elderly

Great phone, for blind and deaf 99 year old mother, in nursing home with no landline available, and no way could she use a mobile phone. This phone is similar to the landline she had at home.
She hasn't actually used the phone herself, but I have set it up, with raised lumps on the three direct memory buttons to feel, so she can tell which button to push. Only negative comment would be that I think a white phone might be better for someone who is vision impaired, as the black phone is just all black and very hard for her to tell where the hand piece is to put back down (she has talked on it, but not rung up herself). Otherwise a great phone of someone with poor cognitive function. Show details

Excellent phone for elderly

It has a strong antenna and seems to pick up weak mobile signals well. Clear speakers and sensitive microphones make this a superior product. My aged relative says its been a godsend and now con easily communicate with friends and family. Show details

Great Phone. Excellent service

My Mother is 97 vision and hearing impaired. She manages this phone very well.
We have always gone to Olitech for her needs. The staff are really helpful, caring and patient, it's refreshing to speak with someone straight away.

My Mum is now - hooray! - connected

After a lot of running around and a succession of hopelessly sub-optimal phones, I have just set up THE one that does the trick. Mum is nearly 97; eyesight and hearing somewhat impaired, as are her fine-motor skills. The Olitech Homephone has her back in harness again. And the fast and effective help I received for Jacinda was icing on the cake. Well done, folks! I'm also keen to go to Telstra; my experience with Optus cannot be described politely. Show details

Reliable phone excellent service

This is to replace the 3G version we purchased for my 91 Year old mother in an old aged home a couple of years ago. I purchased a Vodaphone chip and top it up annually. Easy! She has no idea it is actually a mobile phone as she has always been a Luddite with technology!
Can I add that the phone arrived in about 4 days - excellent service! Show details

I am not sure but you could ring Olitech in Aust. They are very helpful.

1. After you press a dedicated speed dial button such as M1 (or M2 or M3), do you have to press the Call button?
2. After you dial some numbers (0 - 9) to make a call, do you also have to press the call button?
