      Disadvantages

      A fairly bulky mains powered corded phone with digital answering machine!

      A fairly bulky mains powered corded phone with digital answering machine and no battery backup*!
      *Everything is remembered when the power is off (Non volatile memory) except the time and date which gets updated when an incoming call is received.

      MY STORY
      I got this phone from my parents as they never got on with it, as it's not the easiest of phones out there to use. I even had to look in the manual for the redial button as it's not wrote on the phone and is just an image of two circles one white and one black!?
      I use BT 1571 answering machine service so disabled the built in one although it maybe very useful to some as when someone calls and you don't pick up after x number of rings the answering machine kicks in you get to hear everything! : )

      The phone has a lot of features but for me the main issue is you can't change the tone which makes us jump nearly every time it goes off and for that reason alone i will get a new phone when i can.


      FEATURES
      3 x 1 touch speed dial buttons
      20 minutes digital answering machine (low quality or 8 minutes high)
      Date/Time
      Remote Access
      Choice of language
      Speakerphone
      120 name phone book
      Caller display (As longs you are subscribed via your phone company)
      Memo record (plays back to you when listening to your messages)
      Large display (Shows time, date, new messages and new calls)
      Visual ringer (Red flashing light)
      Wall mountable bracket supplied
      Volume control (slide switch)
      Ringer switch (low or high)

      PRICE
      It is currently selling for around £20 which may seem expensive but bear in mind that the digital answering machine chip is expensive. (Non volatile memory)

      I don't like the design of the phone or build and is probably more suited in an office but when you study the manual it does grow on you and if only it had a choice of tones and a backlight i'd be tempted to keep it.
