How is Mobile Help rated?


Contract & Price

Overall Rating: 9.2 / 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.

Mobile Help Equipment

Equipment - 9.5 / 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 have worked with four Medcal Alert companies now. I have encountered lack of honesty, a good product but poor organization, a good product but tied to a landline unless you paid a big price and now I have conmected with a company I can hopefully enjoy for many years that offers everything I have been wanting for a price I can afford. I have met several very nice people by phone. They knew their business very well and were all very helpful. I have really appreciated the organization I have seen. Certainly makes me more confident in my choice and makes the service so easy.

This company is wonderful to work with. They have gone above and beyond in ensuring my mother was covered in case of a fall for if she needed help. Their products are outstanding and they monitor them to make sure they are charged and up to date. I would highly recommend them.

Over all I'm happy with the service that I have received when I have contacted the company. I do have a small problem though, when I received my system the leather case for the mobile device was not included. I talked to someone about having it sent out however it's been a couple of weeks and it hasn't arrived. I sure would appreciate getting it.

We went ahead and processed the order for a mobile case today and it will go out in the mail on Monday. Once again, we apologize that was not given to you in a timely fashion. If you need anything else, please do not hesitate to contact us. Sincerely, MobileHelp

I looked at several plans before I chose MobileHelp. I got more for my money, super service and a quality product. I was thankfully never in an emergency where I needed it but knew it was there. Frequent tests also increased my confidence.

I purchased this unit about 7 months ago and am completely satisfied. Have had to use it twice in the last 6 weeks. Great response time. Have lock box on front door so fire department was able to get into house with no problem.

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
