Accessibility

These phones have been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless technologies that they use. However, there may be some newer wireless technologies used in a phone that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. It is important to try the different features of a phone thoroughly and in different locations, using your hearing aid or cochlear implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise. Please contact Inland Cellular or the manufacturer of the phone for additional information on hearing aid compatibility. If you have questions about Inland Cellular’s return or exchange policies you can review them at https://inlandcellular.com/legal/, or give us a call.
