BT Converse 2100
Advantages: Big Buttons!
Disadvantages: Too light - falls over! Wire gets tangled!
Today I will be reviewing the BT Converse 2100 Telephone. As a BT customer, I had mine free when I reported to BT that my current phone at the time wasn't working. This phone is currently available from Amazon for a price of £24.44 which seems like good value for money.
The phone is attractive and looks modern. The version I have is in black, however a white version is also available. I prefer having the black one as it is easier to keep clean (unlike previous white phones I have had which get 'dirty' very easily.
One thing which is really annoying with this phone is that the cord gets very tangled. No matter how many times I untangle it, you can guarantee it will be tangled up soon. The phone is also a bit too light. I keep the phone on my desk and if I happen to 'pull it' just a little bit (because the cord keeps getting tangled), the phone quite easily falls off the desk which is really annoying.
The phone (the part you speak into) is quite chunky which means that it is easy to grip and hold onto, yet it is nice and light too, and so your hand doesn't ache after talking a long time on the phone.
The buttons are quite big (not huge) but they are quite big and easy to see which means that they are great for the elderly etc. The buttons are also quite far apart (not miles apart) which is good as it means that you do not accidentally press the wrong numbers.
You can adjust the level of the 'ringer'. I have mine on the loudest, however, it still isn't that loud and so if I am in another room with the television on, it is quite easy to miss a call.
There is also a secrecy button which is useful if you want to discuss something with someone with you, but don't want the caller to know etc.
If you are looking for a 'simple' phone that is easy to use, then I would recommend this phone.
Thanks for reading!
