For those who have not yet asked...

Costco hearing centers has in stock or can get at no charge a magnet that you stick to your phone to activate the "telephone now" feature on your future aid if it has not been deactivated by the Costco audiologist or hearing aid fitter....

You can attach the magnet to the phone if your phone does not put out enough electromagnet power to activate the feature...

this is in place of the telecoil that Future and Alera 961 aids do not have...

interesting that Costco never offered this to me at the time of my fitting.. Resound confirms the magnets availability..

Not needed if you go with the "new" to Costco (as of July 1st 2012) 862 Forza (alera 962) as they have telecoil...

YMMV
