Excerpt: I'm very disappointed with this product. I made it clear that I needed the phone to have a loud speaker facility but it didn't work. It was my main requirement and the functionality was unusable- very disappointed.
Excerpt: Mum has difficulty using 'phones with her arthritic hands but she managed this one very well as it has a hands free button which means she doesn't have to pick up the handset. Also has an answer machine which the big button phone does not have. Very pleased with this result as we have tried many different units before this.
Excerpt: To keep it simple; Answer phone 10 /10, instructions, 10 / 10, ring volume 8 / 10, (would have liked it a bit louder) ear volume 10 / 10, ease of use 10 / 10, display ok, but wish it would light up, BT, really do make the best phones.
Summary: These phones provide a way of preventing 100% of nuisance calls!! All you need to do is input all your regular caller numbers ( which can take time) into the base unit and they will be recognised by all units. When a nuisance call arrives they have to announce who they are before the phone actually rings and at that point they usually hang up.
You're going to need considerably longer leads....

Summary: We haven't have this long and my previous experience with BT phones, is that they can be a bit flimsy - we only bought the last one just over a year ago and it died a death last month, so I'm hoping this one will live a bit longer as they're a too pricey to be replacing every year or so. I like this one as it has an answering machine that is self explanatory and easy to use, the buttons are nice and big and the display clear - essential if you're short-sighted like me.
Summary: I bought this for my 80 year old mum as her old one went click click and you need a beeping one to get past the automated switchboards, however she didn't want to change her phone as she thought a new one would be to Techy and I would have to keep coming round to fix it when she pressed the wrong button. I saw this phone and thought it seemed like an easy phone to use.
