I chose to buy this telephone after reading a lot of internet reviews which generally said that this was a good reliable phone. I have now had the phone for about four months and have been slightly disappionted by it.
Firstly I shall share the good points.
It has a stylish design. The black case with silver buttons and trim is not ostentatious, and it fits well in its cradle.
It is a nice shape to hold, and not too heavy when making longer calls.
It has a reasonable range, although my previous Philips cordless phone was better.
It holds plenty of numbers in the memory(150, I think), which are easy to read(like a moble phone).
It has an SMS facility, which means you can send and recieve text messages from it.
It has something called Eco Dect technology, which means it uses less electricity in its standby mode, which is good for the environment.
The caller display is clear, and tells me if I have missed any calls.
The not so good points.
There have been occasions when I have gone to answer the phone that it has cut me off when I have picked up the handset. I have tried changing some of the settings, but to no avail.
A few of my friends have told me that they have called but haven't been able to get through. I don't hear a ring and they get a phone out of order tone...Good job I've got a mobile for emergencies.
