Easy to use home phone.

published

Purchased the phone for friends in their late Eighties who have very little technical ability and do not want to learn new things.
They have been able to use the Olitech EasyTel Mobile Homephone OLT2017 as it is very similar to the old Telstra land line telephone that they had used for many years. They will not be capable of using all the extra feature available on the phone other than the contacts in the phone book and smart keys.

Elderly parent has difficulty with too many buttons

published

Perhaps there is a place for a simpler device with 10 memory buttons on which the recipients names can be displayed. EasyTel Homephone comes as advertised. is easy for us. hope our elderly parent learns to use it.

Olitech EasyTel Mobile Homephone perfect for 92 year old in aged care

published

I purchased the phone for my father-in-law, who is now in aged care. I set up the phone at home with his three daughters on the three dedicated speed dials. Within five minutes of being installed, he was already receiving and making calls, as it has a very familiar interface. Being a mobile phone, nothing was required by the aged care staff other than to plug it into a power socket. With the bonus of volume boost if needed, it is perfect for him.

Great subsitute for my old Land Line

Just what I was looking for

published

Looks and works just like the old landline that my mother 93 was used to with the advantage of not depending on the NBN. Also on a cheaper plan than the landline.

Perfect for people with hearing loss

published

I purchased this phone for my dad to use in his nursing home. He had a habit of misplacing his mobile and it was becoming harder for him to hear on it also. This phone is the perfect solution, as it works from a sim there’s no telephone point needed. The backup battery is a great touch also. After sales service has also been superb

Excellent phone for my 97 year old Mother

published

Highly recommend this phone. My elderly mother can easily contact family using the programmed buttons. Even with hearing aids, she can hear her callers. After so many problems with her landline, this phone is excellent. Customer service is outstanding.

Easy to use for my mum!

published

My mum has just moved into a nursing home and needed a new phone. She has limited mobility due to severe arthritis. We found this phone online and couldn’t believe our luck. It’s fantastic! With restrictions in place, at present, and not being able to go and visit mum this has been a lifesaver. Mum can just press one button (on speaker) to answer the phone and doesn’t need to pick up the handset, but easy enough to use if needed. My two sisters and myself are on the yellow speed dial numbers. Too easy!

great phone

Perfect for my parents.

published

It is very easy to use, especially for elderly people. Easily programmed. Great if you wear hearing aids. And can be easily relocated, no phone connection needed, just a powerpoint.

This handset has changed our lives

published

My Mum has dementia and resides at an Aged Care Facility. Since the recent restrictions were introduced, we are no longer able to visit Mum and we relied on the carers at the Facility to call us and then put Mum on the phone. This new handset has allowed Mum to again be able to initiate calls to us (I have set up my number and my brother's number on the speed dial buttons). Thank you so very much for providing this product. I think you need to market it a little more, even the sales rep at the store where I purchased the SIM card was very impressed, and noted down the details to purchase one for his Grandfather to use.

Good product but some restart issues!

published

I bought the product for my mom who is in an aged care facility. The product has been a godsend due to the coronavirus lockdown. The only issue I have with the product is that if the product is disconnected and the battery runs out, once it is plugged in again it does not automatically restart. A restart button needs to be pressed. This has caused issues because aged care staff are constantly moving the phone and once they realise that the battery has run out they just power it up and think that it is working. We have to call up the nursing home to restart the phone and that might take two days. This function should be changed to allow for mobility.

Good product

published

My mum is in her 80's and doesn't like using mobile phones. She has recently moved into a serviced apartment in a retirement village and this phone was perfect for her. It's easy for her to use and simple to set up, the only issue I have is that the answering machine doesn't give much time for her to answer the phone and picks up after just 4 rings which I think is a negative for an elderly persons phone but unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to turn this off or delay the answering machine pick up. Otherwise she is a happy customer.

For aged mum

published

The phone is fine, no connection to landline was required. Even better did not have to deal with Telstra, sits nicely in the room. Looking at if the flashing message light can be stopped without picking up message as screen states a message left.

Great product

published

I bought the Olitech EasyTel Mobile Homephone for my elderly father to use. We have had ongoing problems with our telephone provider when he transferred to NBN which included loss of service to the landline for hours on end. My father also has hearing problems.
The Olitech EasyTel Mobile Homephone has been wonderful. He can now hear people when he uses the phone, it is easy to use and it is cheaper than the old landline phone service.
Thank you Olitech for this great product.

Great transition phone

published

Purchased for elderly parents who were resistant to changing to a traditional mobile style. My mum seems most happy with using it so far, loving the easy memory buttons, and the fact that it looks and works very similarly to a usual landline handset.
A pity, she says, that she has to dial, before picking up the receiver, but is getting used to it already. She's 94 years!
Peace of mind for all, as parents will be losing their landline (due to nbn) in a few weeks.

this is good can be better

We bought this for my mother in law and have found that the phone needs to have a longer ring time before going to the answering service 3- 4 rings in not long enough and also need a way to show phone number not private

Ideal Phone for Older People

published

At the age of 91, I have found the Olitch 2017 phone simple to use and is a vast improvement on the VOIP phones provide on the NBN Network. Carry on the good work.

he would have to be very deaf not to hear someone talking over the phone, perhaps the ringer would have to be at maximum setting but the phone is visual (lights up) when ringing. The phone appears sturdy enough for harder than normal use. It would be best to contact Olitech to find out how the contacts on the buttons work, if they operate on the same principal as buttons on a computer keyboard then there shouldn't be a problem.

If you purchased 2 of these phones for different rooms could you hot spot one off the phone plan that you have purchased for 1 phone or would you have to purchase 2 phone plans?

I have used bluetooth to talk from one of the Homephones to a Vtech brand base station that has three phones. The system works well to ring and receive calls from three rooms in the house. I doubt that you can use the same sim to communicate on the two phones but the bluetooth may work with 2 home phone with one working as a slave like my Vtech set up.
