Summary: I found this phone to be Ideal as it is wall mountable has large easy to see numbers can be used hands free also has a large phone book. I just wish the ringer tone was louder and also would have liked a choise of ringtone. But on the whole is just what I was looking for and would reccommend this phone to my friends.
Summary: I have had one of these for about a year and used it with a BT Response 75 answering machine (more BT rubbish which didn't work well with the phone). The phone one touch memory buttons have now managed to get corrupted and you can't delete the corrupted one touch numbers which are now stored. ARRRGHHH!
Great phone with great features but just did not work

Summary: I set the phone up after reading the instructions that came with the phone in the box and for the first ten minutes it worked just fine .and then it died .i switched it off at the mains and then set it up again but yet again after ten minutes the phone died again .such a shame !.the phone had some great features .
Summary: I purchased this, my second Converse 2300 to replace my old Converse 1300 in the bedroom;l I already had replaced the one downstairs in the lounge so I knew what I was getting. It has only one defect in that the light to indicate a missed call does not work on a home phone system only on a office system with a PBX exchange. I must admit that a phone so well set up for near deaf use shpuld have this limitation.
Summary: I was going to buy a BT Converse 2300 Corded Telephone from Amazon, but after reading the reviews which point out the faults on this model, I am not going to waste my time and money buying this model. I will look for a good reliable model to buy.
Summary: How did BT get this phone so wrong ? On paper this should have been a brilliant phone with a range of excellent features such as 10 instant dial memory buttons in addition to the 100 name/number phonebook together with headset facility, caller ID and so on... However, the buttons are quite clunky in their operation and can't handle quick dialling, but worse still is the sound quality.
