BT Big Button 200 Corded Telephone

Rating: ★★★★★

The Big Button 200 telephone is an ideal gadget for the elderly as its easy to use, has large keys and is very comfortable to hold.


The BT Big Button corded telephone has large and clear numbers making it extremely easy to read and accurate to dial.

Setting Up

Firstly, I had to ensure that the phone was close to a telephone socket, i.e. no more than 3m away so that the cord would reach.

Once it was plugged in, I set the ringer to the right volume and the tone of the ring I wanted (three to choose from). Then I set the ringer to the Loud option to increase the volume level to its highest.

Options on this phone include:

  • 3 one-touch memory buttons – this allows you to set and dial 3 of your chosen, most important numbers. There is a memory card located to the side of the one-touch memory buttons so you can make a note of the number or contact associated with the number you have stored. You’ll need to lift the plastic plate up so you can write on the card.
  • 10 number quick dial memory – so you can store a further 10 useful telephone numbers
  • Handsfree – This option allows you to make and receive calls without having to lift the handset. A really handy tool to give you the flexibility to do things whilst talking on the phone.
  • Last number redial – This feature works by a one touch dial option of the last number that you called.
  • Amplify – This option increases the volume of your incoming and outgoing handset sound levels
  • One-touch 1571 button – for access to your network answering service.

This phone is so simple to set up and even easier to use. The buttons are responsive and pleasant to touch.

The big button 200 is also pleasantly styled and would fit within any type of decor without looking out of place.


  • hands free option
  • variable volume controls
  • one touch memory buttons
  • quick dial memory


  • none


I would highly recommend this phone to any users that are hard of hearing or have difficulties with their vision.  Its functional as well as being easy to use.
