Awful Product DO NOT BUY

Amazon Customer, Amazon
10 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought this phone a couple of years ago and since then it has been awful. The battery life is poor, the build quality is cheap and the colour screen, well that's just a waste of time. I've had other BT phones and none have been as bad as this.

Candidate for "Worst BT Product"

Zydor, Amazon
8 April 2010
  • Summary: Terrible, whoever designed these was behind the door when the brains were handed out. Battery life is appauling (and I've tried new ones - two sets @£19.90 for four x twin batteries.

Stay away or you will regret it !!

A. KHAN, Amazon
14 December 2009
  • Summary: Initially I though it was brilliant. Good looking Colour cordless phone and fairly easy to use. But once the novelty factor wears out, you realise how poor this handset is. Key issues:- - The colour screen had the wow factor (for about 2mins) when it first came out of the box.

Waste of money

P. Kelly "paddykelly", Amazon
18 November 2009
  • Summary: Wish I could get my money back on these. The phones also have a helpful function that involves turning themselves off as soon as you take them off the charger. This is especially hillarious when you run upstairs to get the other handset and that does exactly the same thing.

Worse than useless

  • Summary: A short review agreeing with the others on here; these phones are appalling. Do yourself a favour and stay away from them and anything else BT touches.

Utter Rubbish - avoid!!!!

Mr. N. P. Ebsworth "Nickynoo", Amazon
11 July 2009
  • Summary: I've had a 3-pack of these for 2 years. After the first 6 months the rubbery keypad started to fall apart. Warranty was refused because this was 'wear and tear' according to Comet. Just after the 1-year guarantee, the batteries failed in all 3 phones.

BT Or Buy Trash - Don't Even Go There!

Disappointed again "Scotty", Amazon
19 June 2009
  • Summary: I had to put 1 star as it wont let you have no stars at all. This product doesn't even warrant 1 star! We've had these phones for a while & wish we hadn't bothered. The phones only have a battery life of a few minutes - LITERALLY even when they've been on charge forever and a day.

Typical BT value for money - ie NOT

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 February 2009
  • Summary: Well I have to agree with all the other reviews about this phone but must add that: #the answerphone works only 75% of the time and you cannot select a message as it will only play them all #the keys soon stopped working effective, would become 'stickey' #the sms predictive text is not logical,...

Rubbish!

Trudgeley, Amazon
8 January 2009
  • Summary: At first I thought these phones were the bees knees, and recommended them to friends. I could use them to send and receive texts and my mobile phone became somewhat redundant. However, after owning them for about 18 months, strange things are happening.

Do NOT even contemplate!!

L. GLEW, Amazon
18 September 2008
  • Summary: Having had these phones for little under a year, they have gone from bad to worse. They refuse to charge on their base stations and after constant messing with them and getting them to connect, they have their bleeping fits.
