I would be very grateful for the input..Thanks..

    Look up Doro Easy Phones.

    They have HAC – Hearing Aid Compatibility.
    An important feature for hearing aid users. Most of our mobile phones are rated M3/T3 or higher, meaning they will work with most types of hearing aids.

    They do look like that lol

    This info was on a site for the deaf and hard of hearing .....

    Nokia are renowned for being "deaf aware" and have excellent amplification on their phones, incoming as well as for ringtones etc.

    Ask to try phones in the store before you buy if you can, tell them that's the only way they'll get a sale.....


    I would say try for yourself though. But the info may be a useful start point.

    if she made an appointment with the audiologist they would be able to help with finding one for her
