Summary: This product was bought to replace a BT Relate 2100 which had basically worn out or so I thought it is still 80% better worn out than the new BT Converse the hands free one of its selling points has a volume so low you have to pick up the receiver to hear anything if you get closer to the phone to hear it in hands free a very loud static squeal is emitted the volume max setting should be the minimum setting the ring tones are so basic to not warrant being installed This...
Not quite up to BT's standard for domestic market - but nearly! Good value for money.

Summary: Made to replace BT Converse 325 phone (probably). The phone was designed to work off business PABX, but works ok at home. Most users will like the BT Converse 2300, but the volume is not quite as good for deaf folk, listening handsfree or via the headset. The volume can be increased (only to 4 notches on the screen indicator). The black on green display would be better black on the neutral background.
Summary: I've not experienced any of the issues other had so I guess I got a good model. Bad QC at source? But anyway, for WFH as I do from time to time, having the option to use a headset is so good and works very well.
Summary: I held off purchasing this phone due to the poor reviews and inability to find any suitable alternative to my old Converse 1300, which was dying. I work from home and use the phone for conference calls. In some cases I find it hard to follow conversations when other parties use a squawk box, so adequate volume was important for any new phone. I ordered the product through Amazon and it arrived as promised.
