Overall Rating: 8.7 / 10 (Excellent)

MobileHelp Medical Alert offers three convenient and straightforward systems with cellular connectivity, which means no landline or cellular contracts are required. In line with other top medical alert providers, the company has also done away with contracts, shipping costs, and activation fees, leaving customers to enjoy quality monitoring, customer service, and support; for a flexible annual, semi-annual, quarterly, or monthly fee. Although their offer is somewhat similar to others we have reviewed, MobileHelp provides one of the fastest response times in the industry and more payment options that other competitors, making them the go-to choice for anyone looking for a prompt and dependable medical alert system.

Equipment - 8 / 10

MobileHelp offers three medical alert systems, the Classic, Duo, and Solo, which work through AT&T's cellular network. While their Classic system is ideal for those who simply need protection at home, their Solo device is a mobile alternative that provides protection both at home and on the go. Their most versatile and comprehensive plan is the Duo system, which offers the convenience of a mobile GPS-enabled help button that can be worn as a pendant or bracelet, and includes a home base station. All of MobileHelp's products are easy to install and test, with excellent additional features such as automatic fall detection and location tracking, making them an attractive alternative for more active users.

I just started with MobileHelp. I am a tech dummy, so have had a lot of questions for them which were answered quickly and accurately. I have tested EVERY button and device they sent me and they were patient and understanding. Only on one instance did it take what to me was too long to respond. I will be watching that in the future. To me taking more than 30 seconds to respond to an emergency is unacceptable. In the one instance, it was late evening and >60 second response time. I have the Duo system with the fall detector and am impressed with the equipment. It is easy to set up and use. The company promises to provide batteries for the buttons when needed. Ordering was easy, and... Read More

Rae Morue March 23rd, 2017 Phoenix, AZ We decided to get Mobile Help after my wife had a surgery over a year ago. Every representative we spoke with was good and there was no problem with the equipment. My 94 year old mother uses the necklace whenever she comes over now because we really don’t need it anymore, however it’s definitely a good company.

My Mother-in-law had a medical emergency and used her MobileHelp pendent to request an ambulance. My wife and I had a call on our phone and the caller id said ” Rapid Res Moni” we did not answer, not recognizing the caller. we live in Nevada, a swing state for elections and we get at least 15-20 political calls/day where we do not recognize the caller. It turns out that the call was very important as the lady was taken to the hospital. Our inquiry as to why the caller id did not say MobilHelp we were told that Rapid Res Moni serves many response companies and can not personalize the MobilHelp caller id. If anybody actually believes that this can’t be done I have a nice bridge in... Read More

Why are they rated only 3 out of 5 stars? Plus, I don't trust the BBB having used them before with an A+ rating on Movers Inc. and got the worst services EVER! As a disabled person it took them 14 hours with damaged and stolen property. Would like to see some negative testimonies for MobilHelp. NO company is perfect. Thanks.
