Disadvantages: see review
I purchased the BT freestyle cordless phone a few years ago, it cost around £45
It is a cordless telephone, which comes with a twin handset which can be placed in another room in the house.
The quality of the sound in the phone is very good and there is a volume button so it can be adjusted according to your preference.
The handset is quite large approx 7 inches but on the plus side this means that the buttons are larger and easy to see.
There is a phonebook which holds approx 50 numbers and is accessed from a button on the handset.
There is a choice of ringers and volumes which you can select according to your preference.
There is an answering machine feature, the play/pause delete and volume settings for the answering machine are located on the main base, not the twin base, however you can listen to and delete messages on both handsets. The handsets will also display when there is a new message on the machine.
There is a find button on the main base to locate the handset if it goes missing. This function is extremely useful with a cordless phone, however it can sometimes be difficult to hear the paging sound (especially if the phone is buried in the sofa)
The battery life is good on the handsets they can be left off the base for a couple of days before the battery would run out. They automatically recharge when returned to the base. There is a bar on the handset display showing how much life is left in the battery.
There is an intercom button on each of the handsets, which is particularly useful if you want to talk to your family members who are upstairs or in another room.
The only criticism which I would have with the phone is that when you answer with one handset you cannot pick up the call with the other handset. This means that if the phone is answered upstairs and the call is for someone downstairs, someone will have to run up or down to pass the phone over. However it means that people cannot listen to your conversation using the other handset.
Summary: good, reliable phone
