Senior Life Alert Products & phone interference

My mother subcribed to "Life Watch" which is one of those services where you wear a device & press button for help if you've "fallen & can't get up".  Apparently, it interfered with her phone & I understand they tried to resolve the problem but couldn't so she's getting a refund of the initial $100.  I am thinking that all these services must work the same way & I don't see how going with another service will be any different.  Has anybody had this experience with this service interfering with the phone?  What is the solution?  Thanks. 

P.S.  After posting I used to check a box that would send me an email if somebody replied to my post, but that box is  no longer available.  How come?

Quite possibly because it's SPAM.

Carolyn,

What kind of phone service does your mother have? If she has internet phone service, which is much cheaper and allows free long distance calls, it interferes with lots of things. I think a computer tech can fix some of this but not all. For some things just must have a land line!
