Will not take voicemails. Was sent a second phone, it still will not accept voicemails. Everything set up properly, incoming calls ring six times then nothing, phone goes dead! Not a good phone for dementia patient, too confusing for senior citizen. Just has bigger numbers!
I have had the old version for a number of years and have used it once. Was so pleased with the response. I have stepped on it a couple of times by accident and still such a quick response. Was so excited to get the wearable as I was wearing the old one on my wrist and it was heavy and not very attractive but cannot stand the ones around your neck. I realize some folks do not have a smart phone so that may be their best option. And the cost if half the price per month. thanks for coming up with an alternative. Fances Rang Chenoweth.
Great idea. In use is questionable. We just took a 3 day trip out of state,yet the weekly report shows we were out and about for 19 hours. Wife wears it every day yet it usually reports less than 6 days use. It is on the charger EVERY night for at least 8 hours yet a couple times a month it turns off from low battery after about 11-12 hours of being on.
I got a Great Call and a Jitterbug phone at same time. I did not know you could buy the phone at Best Buy. Wish I had as this one has never worked and the terrible Cust Service will not take it back. The button next to the bed was fine but it blinks all night and keeps me awake. When I called CS they said it needs to prove its working??? Then CS is almost impossible to reach and when you do they are not very helpful. No necklace came with the button so if I fall in living room what then so I called and they sent me a lanyard that had no connection to the button Another call and they sent something to attach to button and my engineer son could not do it. Another call and a part was sent... Read More
The Lively will not hold a charge and spends most of the time on the charger. The Splash was much, much better but when I tried to switch back to it from the Lively I was informed that it was no longer available. It is only supported if you had a Splash and never "upgraded?" to the Lively.
Does not stay connected to my phone.
My Mother-in-law had a greatcall. Battery life on the unit sucks, 12 hours or less. What good does the unit do if it has to be on the charger 50% of the time, NONE. Thats what happened when she fell a few days ago, greatcall was on the charger because she had forgotten to charge the night before. Thank God she was able to get up and to a phone. We are Switching!!!
My Boss Mark is 90. He loves the mobility it offers. Excellent choice if you're a Senior
Poor service! Thought equipment was working until trying to use it, not even working! False sense of security!! Bought brand new equipment and they said there equipment was malfunctioning! Wanted to ship another one for 24.99! Dont use this company!
Battery life is about 7-8 hours. Even had them send a second set and had the same problem. Don't buy this product.
