Phone ringer amplifiers

Hi

Can anyone out there help please

My mum needs a ring amplifier for her phone but there seems to be problems with using these with a virgin phone line.

Any advice?

Thanks

Re: Phone ringer amplifiers

AFAIK there is a known issue with VM lines carrying a lower voltage than needed by some devices.

It used to be possible to get a booster (REN amplifier) but I dont know if those are still available. They pretty much became obsolete with the advent of DECT. If they are, one that works on a BT line will work on a VM line and give the voltage you need for a ring amplifier.
