Hearing Aid Compatibility
Nokia recommends hearing aid wearers test different phones before buying. Although some phones may be designated as hearing aid compatible, there is no guarantee interference will be sufficiently minimised with a HAC-compliant wireless device. The quality, immunity and customisation of hearing aids vary greatly, and individual preferences should be determined before purchasing a wireless device.
More information about digital wireless and hearing aid compatibility, including HAC-compliant models.
Most Nokia phones are compatible with textphone, or TTY, devices.
