Some hearing devices are more “immune” than others to this interference noise, and mobile phones can also vary in the amount of interference noise they may generate at any given time.

    Be sure to evaluate your personal needs by trying out this mobile phone with your specific hearing device, using both antenna positions if equipped with a retractable antenna. More information about hearing aid compatibility may be found at: http://commerce.motorola.com/consumer/QWhtml/ accessibility/default.html, www.fcc.gov, www.fda.gov, and www.accesswireless.org.
