    external cellphone ringer

    My Mom has a new Pantech Breeze. Unfortunately she can't hear the
    ringtone especially when the tv is on (she blasts the tv). It is NOT a
    problem when away - cellphone is in her purse near her. The low
    ring is a problem at home. Is there an economical external ringer?
    Bluetooth capable is fine since her the breeze has bluetooth.

    p.s. Gigaset One Bluetooth Cell Phone - Home Phone Docking Station Device
    at http://www.smithgear.com/itc-bt.html is way too expensive. Under $30
    to even be considered.

    an additional question...

    I'm looking at various loud phone ringers, i.e.,

    http://www4.shopping.com/xDN-telepho...e-ringers.html

    The problem is these models are for landline phone. Is there a way to get them to
    work with cellphones?

    Doing a Google search shows a thing called a BlueQ which is a Bluetooth bracelet that vibrates when the phone rings. Sounds like it might work for your mom.

    Some information on BlueQ

    Thank you replying. We gave up. She does not to spend $39 for a bracelet which
    she is unlikely to wear. People can call her home phone if they need to. The only
    advantage of her cellphone is phone from the family (AT&T family plan) are free.
    But one could call her home phone (cost a few minutes) and have her call back on
    the cellphone (free).

    Anything over $20 is not worthwhile to consider.

    I use TheCelly speaker as my external cellphone ringer. I can set the speaker anywhere in my house and when my cellphone ringer, it rings through the speaker. It even works if the cell phone is on silent.
