Summary: I am not normally given to completely dissing a product - I try to be objective and give a fair review; however I am afraid that there is nothing that I can say about this phone other than it is a piece of junk. What are the basic things we require from a telephone?
Good phone for working at home - has a few querks but nothing major - I would recommend

Summary: I work from home and the spend a lot of time on the phone so i needed a phone with a large phone directory and one that i could plug a headset into. I also wanted a corded phone so it didn't interfere with the cordless phones I have plugged into my other home phone line.
and the display itself is very clunky and dated - like something from the early 1980's

Summary: This phone promises a lot on paper but fails miserably in practice: 1.It does not have even ONE decent ordinary telephone ring-tone. All the available tones are awful, and the ring volume is low and cannot be adjusted. 2.
Summary: This is actually a really good phone once you get used to the quirks. The ringtones are indeed for the most part ridiculous but there are a couple you can use which would pass for a regular phone.

Summary: I see a lot of people panning this phone and that's not unusual because you can't find a corded phone with a decent review. Here is my experience. Turned up undamaged plugged in handset and phone line. Bit disappointed it needed a power plug but that's the way it goes.
Summary: This was a refurbished phone from BT Online Shop- The first one had to be returned as the chosen Ringtone would not work - kept returning to the default horrible polyphonic Ringtone. The Bt shop quickly accepted it's return and speedily dispatched a replacement.
