Question about Astra Meridian 9417 Corded Phone

1 Answer

Irritation I have had an Astra Meridian 9417 Corded Phone for one year. When it was new, it irritated me in the sense that my eyes and throat would burn and itch during an extended phone conversation. I have been away from my office for 4 months and had forgotten about this problem. But, upon using the phone today, I am reminded of the irritation. Is this common? Is there something I can do about it? Thanks, Bob

Contact Nortel since they make meridian systems and see what the problem is. It could be the plastics, the dye, something in the heaser, or some residue casuing an elergic reaction.

Some meridian phones allow for a headset to be installed at the bottom of the phone. The headet jack should be labeled on the botton of the phone if you have one. That could solve the problem as well.

Using Samsung Highlight causes eye irritation and headache

There are people that doe suffer from the magnetic presences and the waves being emitted from certain cell phones. The only thing you could try would be a bluetooth headset or a wired headset with a boom mic if your phone has that type of jack. The other thing to consider is that the type of screen and lcd type could be giving you these symptoms due to looking at the type of screen and small fonts on that particular phone. Good luck.

Contact your phone company to make sure the stutter tone and/or feature for Voice mail notification is on. I too had the same problem many years ago with AT&T (Then SBC) to correct this.
