      Cool and useful with the features you need and some extras too

      This is a great looking digital cordless phone which comes in black, red or white. I've got the black ones. You can buy one for £55 -£80 (depending where you buy it from), a twin pack for £90 plus, or a four pack for £175 or more. The phone charges in about 5 hours from first use and feels and looks like a mobile in your hand. The buttons are generously sized (even Hillcrestsan's chubby man fingers will cope with these) and they are backlit so fumbling for the phone in the dark is also not a problem. The screen is quite clear too, at 1.5inches. They have a couple of really useful features in addition to the usual ones: call restrict and night mode are two that many people might find useful. Call restrict allows you to bar up to six dialling codes so if you have any teenagers in the house prone to dialling premium rate numbers when your back is turned you can now have the last laugh. If you want to call one you can put in a pin number to free up the dialling code, then put it back on again. Nifty. Night mode allows you to block all incoming calls between times you preset. You modify this to allow only numbers which ring for a long time to get through (say after ringing for 60 seconds it will get through) or set a group of close family only to get through. The phone has a built in answerphone and people can leave long messages without getting cut off. The maximum message length you can leave apparently is 40 minutes, but mercifully no one has tested that on my phone! It comes with a speaker phone facility and a headset jack too so you can plug in a headset if you want to use them in an office environment. The internal phone book can store 200 names and numbers. It has a very useful export feature which lets you send your programmed-in numbers to other handsets so you don't haveto programme each phone individually if you buy a pile of them. The talk clarity is great and it is comfortable to hold. The reception is good - mine works from the base station in the garden and the garage. One slight irritation is that the lovely bright display doesn't seem to have a low setting. Apart from the waste of electricity, this means the phone is not ideal for a bedroom. The other slight irritation is that you have to press two buttons to use the "one touch dialing facility" which is a bit daft. But all in all this is a great product, at a competitive price, which I'd buy all over again if I were choosing new house phones.
