I've owned this phone for 2 years. The reason I chose it was because its a digital phone so the second handset doesn't need to be plugged into a landline, you just plug it into a power point and its ready to go..!
I also chose it because it has an answer phone which you can use to record your own message or leave it as the automated message (which is standard for most answer phones now)
You can also insert your SIM card and upload your telephone numbers, however I've tried with 2 different SIM cards now and it hasn't worked... I should have questionned it but I never got round to it so I could have a dud phone and its my own fault but to be honest I wasn't that bothered by this function... I'm not a techie so the fact it had an answer phone and I didn't need a phone line was all I was interested in!
There is also a loud speaker function.. if you press the green 'on' button twice you can talk through the speakers which is handy if you are on a long call!
There is a menu button which takes you through various different functions but I must admit I've not used these so can't comment
The phone itself is rounded at the back so its comfortable to hold and the buttons are fairly large so handy for large fingers..
The only issue now is that I'm having a few problems with the handset in that if the phone rings I can't actually pick up the call as it just goes dead... it could be that the phone is getting towards the end of its life as I understand the digital phones don't last that long..
BT SYNERGY 4500 TWIN
The phone is made in China, it has a LCD display screen, so it makes it easy for you to see the screen and it looks cool, the phone is light weight as well and is cordless.
The beauty about this phone is that you can store 255 names and numbers for easy dialling. It is a sim card reader, that means you dont have to sit down and take your time inserting all the numbers into the phone, all you do is insert your mobile sim card into the phone base and it will record all your numbers from your phone to your BT synergy 4500 phone.
The benefit for this phone is that it is like a mobile as you can use it to send and receive messagers and that is really easy to do. To use your text messaging service you do need be able to send messages from your home phone line, and you would need to check with your service provider for this.
The phone does have a answer machine, the recording time is 11 minutes, it also has caller display, which means you can see whos calling you before you answer the phone.
