Well worth the money, two phones for a great price. Only annoyance is the poor selection of ringtones but loudspeaker is clear and phone is easy to use, although not as slick as a mobile phone interface.
display lights on base uni too bright.
rather fiddly to navigate to required function
cannot listen to messages when answer phone is on to decide whether to answer call
names list has to be inserted on both handsets which is time consuming.
Easy to use, plenty of features, answerphone works well - plenty of space for messages. Apart from a few niggles good phone overall.
No battery low warning beep, no caller display except from known callers, no record of missed calls only the last one.
This is one of those phones that does exactly what it is supposed to, which is nice, considering that it comes from the BT range.
You get everything you need in the box and setting it up is as simple as plugging the phones in, with the answer phone plugging into the phone line and the mains, whilst the other hand set just plugs into the mains. Then you let the batteries charge.
