I brought this phone at Tesco recently. 2 handsets for £30, which i thought was excellent.
There is a base with 1 handset, which has to be plugged in to the electricity supply and telephone cable. The other handset will work whether it is plugged in or not.
On the base unit, there is a little button which if you've lost the handset and press it, it calls it. (i quite liked that, not had it before!).
There is no choice of ring tones, it is a standard 'bring, bring', but that was fine by me. I can hear it wherever i am in the house.
I use the function of missed calls everyday. There's a little telephone icon comes on if you've missed calls.
No answermachine, but 1571 works just fine.
Inputting telephone numbers was very easy into the address book. Instructions in the handbook are perfect.
The only negative is that when the phone shows you missed calls, you have to delete each one individually, it is a pain.
Looks good, matches my Panasonic TV perfectly!!
The charge holds fairly well. I have had the phone out of its cradle for about 2 days and it still has juice, so doesn't consume a lot of energy. Not sure what the range is from the base for the phone, but i walk all around my living room, kitchen, garden and bathroom without a problem.
Not a lot i can say about it really, simple, cordless phone that does what it needs to and looks quite smart besides.
