So this handset is bay far no means the sexiest phone out there but it what it says on the tin.
Looking at it its what you would expect from a portable handsfree phone. I needed a second phone that had its own charging station so I picked this one. Unfortunately though the phone loses connection with the base and the phone starts to search for the signal.
This would be fine if it didn't always happen even when I am right next to the base. It also beeps quite annoyingly when it is searching and you can't switch this off. You would think you could use this in another room but you can't so it is in actual fact pretty pointless in terms of what its meant to be offering.
So if you want a telephone system running more than 1 phone that works reliably, I would avoid this one. As a stand alone phone, there is no problem.
The other annoying factor is that the batteries run low very quickly on the handsets. Even if they are docked. More so than other handsfree phones I have had. So money is wasted on buying batteries I'm afraid.
The handsets are solid feeling, with good buttons that are individual, raised buttons, so you know which one you've got your finger on. Screens can be set to switch off to save battery life, with a flashing LED indicator to show if you've missed any calls or messages. This raised my only downside with the unit, that screen will not switch off when it's on the base unit charging. So, when I've gone to charge it overnight, it lights up the bedroom. It's how it's meant to be so with the beeping issue I moved it out of the bedroom. Seems to me having the screen on when it's charging will mean the charge takes longer, so I really can't see the sense it this 'flaw'.
Phone is very easy to use, with a menu system that is pretty much self-explanatory without needing to revert to flicking through the manual booklet. Screen is bright enough to see in all light conditions that I've encountered so far.
The SIM card transfer worked perfectly first time, as did the very straightforward phone book copy from one handset to the other. I'd prefer a centrally held phonebook that updated both automatically if one handset was updated, but struggled to find one that had such a feature.
The technical facts are as follows:
Packs of 1 or 2, plus additional handset
200 name & number directory
30 number calls list
20 number redial list
