Doro PhoneEasy 632 

While Doro phones are extremely easy to use and have lots of features to suit those with sight and or hearing problems why should those people have to accept a phone that does not have basic features that other able bodied have, none whatsoever hence the PhoneEasy 632.

It is 10x5x1.5cm when closed, the first figure increases to 19cm when flipped open for use.

Unlike most Doro phones when in use the emergency button – although still there on the back – is not that obvious, it sits beside the speaker at top of the base half of the phone. Somewhat more unusually the camera is at the base of the top part of the phones back.

The volume up and down buttons are on the right with the micro USB charge point on the left with the headphone socket beside it. My unit was black with white trim and all the items just described are on the white part so easier to pick out.

The viewable screen is 5x3.7cm with all the buttons on the lower part a total of 22 well marked buttons.

Insert your SIM card and the solid battery in the rear and press the red call end button for a couple of seconds and the unit switches on, you are asked if you want to run the setup and this takes you through everything including setting the time and date, colour choices and volume levels etc.

ICE is important for everyone but only on phones designed for those with problems is it prominent in the options. It stands for In Case of Emergency. Not only does this show name and date of birth, height, weight and address, users language, contact details as well as doctors name but important information on conditions, allergies, blood type, vaccinations, medication and other information which for say a paramedic could in fact help to save a collapsed person’s life.

As with all recent Doro Phones it has a dock that it can be charged from so someone with limited sight can just place the phone in the dock and no fiddling with the micro USB cable. A recent feature is the ability fo4r the phone to be managed remotely from a PC so once setup if the disabled person they can contact a friend or relative for remote help via My Doro Manager.

For those more able Doro provide an excellent 24 page manual in clear type that has easy to follow single point instructions.

Apart from the micro USB to USB lead and the phone dock already mentioned are a good length lanyard and a 13amp plug to connect the USB lead to finally even a set of earbuds.

For anyone having a first mobile phone at a mature age who has even a small sight and or hearing problem then a Doro phone does not make them stand out from the crowd. This is a SIM free phone so find the plan that suits the user.

The Doro PhoneEasy 632 is available from the link below for £99.68 with free delivery.

Doro 632
I have a doro632. The volume is very low. I have tried everything to improve but no luck.Also the incoming   ring cuts off after a short few rings. I must be doing something wrong as the phone is supposed to be fdor the hard of hearing.

Can anybody help me sort this out ?

Just bought Doro 632, it was designed for me, hard of hearing & 83 years young.

Can this phone, reliably & safely, be plugged into any USB scource, ie my PC or my Honda Civic car?
I don't want to damage it by connecting it to an unsuitable power supply.

Thanks for any help you can give.
