      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I bought this mainly for the bluetooth, so flaky support was the killer for me :o(

      I've had this about six months now. It's a stylish phone, with fairly 'normal' buttons (why is it that so many 'stylish' phones have stupid buttons designed for anything but pressing?) which makes it very easy to pick up and dial. I know that sounds obvious, but I've had more than one DECT phone where just pressing the numbers was a chore, so it's worth mentioning. The function buttons are arranged in a ring and are a little more fiddly, but still not too awkward. The phone's base connector is like an oblong peg that fits in a hole on the bottom of the phone, so it's easy to pick up and relocate for charging (again sounds obvious but some phones are easy to put down without realising they haven't properly engaged until you pick it up again to find the battery has gone flat). I guess the 'peg' style connector on the base could be vulnerable to knocks if it's located somewhere things might get dropped on it, but it hasn't been a problem for me on my desk. The call quality on this phone is great, I've had no problems with range, but then I live in a small house so haven't really tested it to its limits in that department. My only real gripe is that I bought this one for its bluetooth funcitonality and 1) the bluetooth menu feels like it was added as an afterthought so isn't the most intuitive thing to find and 2) while pairing was very easy, connecting to make an outgoing call is *very* temperamental. To the point that I hardly even bother trying any more. (This is with both a Sony Ericsson and a Plantronics headset, both of which have worked just fine with a variety of bluetooth mobiles, so I'm pretty confident it's the phone that's being difficult, not the headsets.)
