I purchased this phone for a new flat as I wanted a stylish cordless phone & thats exactly what I got. The features on this are endless, including;
-Multi Choice Ringtones
-Games (including a jigsaw of a drink for some reason)
-Redial shows last 10 called numbers
There are more but they are not really worth mentioning as most of the features do not work as described or to the extent they are supposed to.
While in the same room as the base unit for the cordless Philips the sound and connection remain clear and of a high quality but as you move away the sound received begins to wane. If you happen to be in another room when the phone does ring you probably won't hear it as the biggest issue I have had is with the maximum volume. My phone is located in the living room of my flat, it cannot be heard from another room if you happen to have a door closed, so either my doors are soundproofed or the maximum volume is just too quite.
Another problem is the SMS service, after setting this up as described in the manual I still can't get it to work properly. I had the phone replaced before as I was sure it was faulty but have had the same issues with the replacement so believe the phone itself is just a dissapointment.
Overall I wouldn't recommend this phone to anyone unless they wanted a basic home phone that looks very pleasing, the modern style design really is the best thing about the phone. It can be summed up as style over substance as all the features which make this worth the price will not work as expected.
Summary: Style Over Substance Wins Again
