Effectiveness of T-switch

My 7-year old son wears 2 Unitron US80 Sigma hearing aids.
He has a bilateral severe-to-profound loss.
I would like if possible for him to start learning to use the telephone.
I know this is very difficult but I am hoping that with familiar people and
simple conversation he can have some conversation.

The problem is when we switch his hearing aids to the T-switch he says he 
can't hear anything. The telephone is hearing-aid compatible. I listened
to his aids using a stethoscope at the telephone and could hear someone's
voice very faintly. I even tried moving all around to see if I could get
a stronger reception.

Is this as good as it will get? If so how does anyone use their T-coil?

For the time being we push the "speakerphone" button and put the volume on
