Great alternative for the elderly.
My elderly mother was not comfortable with changing from her home phone to using a mobile phone. When her landline was going to be disconnected, we identified this as an alternative option.
The website was clear, ordering easy, delivery prompt and she transitioned to the new phone without any problems.
Service and support were excellent.
Peace of mind for myself and my elderly mother.
I had been looking for a suitable mobile phone for my elderly and totally non tech savvy mother, but all the while not being convinced she would be able to adjust to one, however as soon as I became aware of the 'mobile homephone' I knew it was the best chance to give my mother backup communications.
From the assistance I received from Olitech prior to purchase, the delivery of the phone (and pendant), its easy setup and subsequent help from Olitech regarding a problem with the pendant we could not be happier.
Mum's new best friend
EasyTel Mobile is the best phone and telecommunication service for Mum. It's like a landline and mobile phone in one, without added nbn complications. It has taken away the stress of speaking with Mum on the phone because she can hear everything said and can use the phone with confidence. Mum had immense difficulty using ordinary mobile phones and never wants internet usage, so this phone is the perfect solution.Show details
Great solution for the non-techies
My incapacitiated wife had no hope of using a normal mobile phone. The Oliphone seemed so similar to the office phone she used to operate that she now has no difficulty making and receiving calls. The abbreviated dialling is simple to use, and the emergency button, particularly combined with the pendant, gives us all great comfort and reassurance.Show details

Makes a great second phone

Great alternative to a mobile phone
We purchased this phone for an elderly relative living in a nursing home who had lost the ability to reliably charge and operate a mobile phone without inadvertently pressing the wrong buttons. No landline was offered at the facility. This phone's design is very good for this application.
Kristin was very helpful in assisting me through the process, and provides excellent support. Thank you.
Great back up service
You may get a good deal anywhere but the support service is fantastic. had a problem with the sim card clip (my fault) and they fixed it in 2 minutes Great service

Perfect phone for what it was intended for.
Much easier to use than a actual mobile phone especially for someone in residential care. Good easy way for the family to keep in touch, especially during this covid pandemic. Olitech staff was excellent and the phone was dispatched and received within a couple of days. Phone is good, easy to set up and user friendly.Show details
Questions & Answers
Hi, mums phone going straight to messagebank, any thoughts please?
The only thing I can think of is if the handpiece is somehow not resting in the correct position and therefore not operating the switch to tell the unit that it is 'hung up'.
Try making a call and hanging up the handpiece to see if the call is terminated from your end, failing this I suggest you get in touch with Olitech.
Hi, I have just got a second hand olitech and have put an aldi Sim in, not working?
Hi, does the sim work in another phone? Do other mobile phones work in the area, specifically those on the same network as aldi - Optus I think?
I have an Amaysim sim card (Optus network) in my mum's Olitech phone and no problems.
Have you tried removing and reinstalling the sim card?
I can't remember if the phone as a reset or not, if it does try that.
Also be aware that the battery in the phone does not have anywhere near the standby or talk time of a typical mobile phone, it is only meant to cover for power outages.
Good luck, cheers, Nick.
