Emporia Life Phone info sought

August 28th, 2007 | by dnw |

Back here I wrote about the Emporia Life Phone.

The other day I got an email asking me about where to get one in Australia, which it appears you can’t.

Can anyone help shelly? Are you listening Emporia?

These are not available in Australia at present and nobody I have spoken to,
even the blind institiue are aware of these phones. Please can you advise me
where the safest place would be to purchase one from overseas and have it sent
to australia. I am assuming that they would work over here. Any advice you
could give me would be greatly appreciated

FWIW, I found this info. from this pdf manual.

    I learnt about Emporia phoens when a friend recived one for a Christmas gift.
    I would love to be able to purches one for my mother who has difficulty see what she is dooing with the small mobiles and can use them with her hearing aid.
    This phone would be just right, But what a price! £169+, havent found anyone doing this model on contract, when you can get other more expencive ones that way free, Why Not I wonder?

    my mother hated this phone. too basic and the menus are worded weird – like it was translated. manual was useless. battery status fluctuates all the time so she never knows if it was charges. phone will beep in the middle of the night and she has to the battery out to stop it or she cant sleep. happens a few times a month. not reliable.
