The Emporia Select Basic has large buttons, a clear screen, and works in combination with hearing aids. This way you can easily operate the phone even if your hearing or sight is impaired. And you'll never miss an important phone call thanks to the small icons on the front of the device. These illuminate when you're being called or when you've received a message. You'll also see the battery level. Thanks to the emergency button on the back of this senior citizens phone, you can call a pre-programmed number with 1 press of a button in case of an emergency.
