The PowerTel 980 is a large, robust home phone set, with a lovely optional wrist watch style device which enables you to have an emergency button and know when there is an incoming call – all rolled into one.
Everything is so simple – each piece is packed individually so all you’d need to do is lay everything out in front of you and plug it in. The instructions are printed clearly in large text, which are easy to follow with distinctive pictures for different settings and functions.
The pictures, however, do seem to be easier to see printed in the instruction manual than printed on the handsets themselves. And there are a lot of pictures. And a lot of functions.
