    Dave in Pittsburgh got a reaction from pakom in Learning to listen on the phone   
    You have answered all of your own questions,I too. have the same problem,however if you have Roger I’ve found by useing Roger attachment to the cell has help me .If you haven’t, it’s a short cable with head set tape on it.Its blue tooth and stream right to your Sonnet. Another thing you can do is ,it’s a free App it’s InnoCapiton  it’s close caption you can see what is being said,also you can go into their settings and when you make a phone call from your cell it’s your number that shows not a close caption number.
    Hope this helps

    Why is it that MED EL open house is only posted on Facebook and not on MED EL website? At least I can’t find it there.I may be looking incorrectly so advise me.Thank goodness the MED EL sends out an general email when one is being held in my area.I am not a big fan of social media unfortunately.

    I see that you are in Australia since you are not on Facebook book as I am not I would call MEDEL or if you know your local MED EL customer engagement Rep and know their email they will send a  notice when one is being held in you area.The MEDEL customer service person at the 800 number may be a starting point.
    If you received a red binder there may be an customer service person at MED EL to email directly .Happy hunting if I can be of any help just let me know.We all are in this together.
    Please let me know your outcome

    I just want to say a big thanks to my CI Center and my audiologist. I have read on H P individuals going to their  CI Center and not having the tool for the magnet and cables I sent an email to my audiologist and she advised me we have everything not to worry

    As a frequent traveler I take both rechagable and disposable batteries as there is pro and cons as when and where you use them. I also pack and extra extra coil cover just in case you’res falls off hits the ground and cracks,also if you have them extra battery frame for disposable batteries ,rechargeable battery adapter for the rechargeable batteries,you never know
