BT Aura 1500

The UK’s number one phone brand* brings you the BT Aura 1500. Our top of the range cordless phone offers you a great design with an extra-large 7 line colour screen, and tons of useful features.

Stylish Phone

The modern stylish design of the BT Aura 1500 makes this phone a great addition to any room, whilst only taking up minimal space. The extra-large colour screen provides a higher-quality look and feel. The excellent colour contrast makes it clear and easy to read.

You'll find the BT Aura 1500 will allow you to save up to 250 numbers, letting you keep track of all your important contacts. This phone also automatically shares contacts between handsets, saving you time, and allowing you to call friends and family quickly from any handset.

The BT Aura 1500 features a great design, with a large colour screen that is easy to read. You'll be able to see instantly how many messages or missed calls you have. The screen is also large enough for easy text messaging.

You'll experience crystal clear sound with the BT Aura 1500, making your conversations clearer and easier to hear. Our phones are designed in the UK and are optimised for the UK market, giving you all the features you need for effortless UK calling.

The build quality of the Aura 1500 has also been rigorously tested, with the buttons checked to make sure your 1000th press is the same as your first.

Freedom to Move Around Your House

The Aura 1500 has a long range of up to 300m. This is far enough to let you walk around and outside the house with freedom and without the fear of interrupting your call. Take calls while gardening or doing chores - you'll no longer be tied down to the immediate area around your base station.

Easy to Use

With the BT Aura 1500, it's easy to see what numbers you are dialling, thanks to the backlit key pad. With big, clear text and a bright backlight, this phone is easy to operate even in a dark room.

You can copy your contacts from one handset to another, or redial previous number easily – the Aura 1500 saves your last 20 dialled numbers, and the last 50 numbers to call you.

My old set of telephones required individual setting up (3 phones), but with these BT Aura set up one with the phone list and it arrives at the others...magic. The sound quality is good too, I thought I was going deaf with the old ones but BT is clear. The display is quite clear, easy to read. Even the sound on recorded message playback is of good quality.
PS its cheaper from Amazon than BT!!

Colour Name: Black /Chrome - Trio Verified Purchase
Well done BT - you've got it right - just what the small business/home was looking for. Nice looking phone, easy on the eyes large display screen - when using to make a phone call the large figures are easily seen (even without my glasses)- the memory capacity is brilliant and easy to access - very user friendly steps even for set-up - all-in-all this product ticked all my boxes hopefully it will do the same for you.

Colour Name: Black /Chrome - Single Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
For the price, there isn't a whole lot to complain about here, and plenty to be pleased about. The Aura 1500 is a reasonably compact, cleanly styled and feels reassuringly weighty in-hand. No, it doesn't have the heft of an old GPO dial-'phone, but for what it is, it's pretty solid. The base / stand is also fairly solid, so it's less likely to be accidentally tipped over than some. I'd still suggest placing it near a wall though to reduce the chances of it being caught in the passing. I was pleased to see that the 'phone comes with a reasonable printed manual, rather than just a CD or (worse) a link to a website, which is becoming increasingly widespread.

Programming is straightforward, the interface (such as a cordless phone has one) is quite inituitive and the buttons have a good size and feel to them. The built-in 'phonebook has space for 250 contacts. Battery life seems respectable, although a couple of cycles to ensure it reaches full charge would be a good idea. Reception is excellent; I was able to use the handset at the far end of my (110ft long) garden with the base unit on the far side of the house, behind multiple walls, without any difficulties. Not bad at all. The internal speakers seem good too, and the answer-phone has a decent amount of memory / storage time. The colour screen is also of decent quality, and you can change the wallpapers etc. if you have the inclination. The caller display facility is useful, and there are a variety of ring-tones to select from, which as usual vary from the decent to the vile.

All in all, while not the cheapest cordless telephone / answermachine on the market, this is probably a better buy than many cheaper models on the market, which often tend to be false economies. Worth paying the extra (and not all that much extra) for.

Colour Name: Black /Chrome - Quad
In case it's of help to others, I had a problem with beeps during calls that momentarily also blocked the audio. I thought it was connected with our new BT Home Hub 3. I rang the BT help line (0800 218 2182), waited nearly 10 mins to get a reply, and they suggested:

Menu>Sound>Advisory Tones>No Coverage>Off, then reset the base as per page 40 of the BT Aura 1500 manual. Resetting the base does not delete stored numbers etc. It is (they say) nothing to do with the Home Hub 3.

Apparently, the phone can think it is out of range when it isn't, even while you are talking to someone. When it is genuinely out of range, it will flash a message on the screen. Range seems OK, tho' I think I read in the spec. that it has a range of 300M. Through several walls, this is more like 40Mts. in our installation.

Colour Name: Black /Chrome - Single Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Have had this a few months now. Easy peasy to set up and has a good clear signal. Really love the hands free option - makes family calls much more fun. There is a good selection of screen savers, backgrounds and ring tones (we pick the cheesiest, for me and my 5 year old to start dancing to when it rings). As a phone the sound is nice and clear. The answer phone function again is easy to set up and use. Auto-answer is good - no need to find the answer button when the phone rings as it answers when you take it out of the base charger.

I don't like that the screen is constantly lit up. It dims but not completely and this seems to be a waste of power to me. I don't like switching off everything at night and leaving this glaring in the corner!

Overall I am pleased with this phone.

I love this phone. It was simple to set up and easy to use. It looks stylish and takes up very little space on my desk. Included with it is a handbook - not just a website as happens too often now. My old phone crackled terribly but this one is as clear as a bell. It also has a great selection of ring tones and wallpapers so you can personalise your phone. Great value.

Colour Name: Black /Chrome - Single Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My first reaction to the Aura 1500 was how much it resembled a basic mobile phone, perhaps one from a few years back. That isn't a bad thing because even basic mobile phones are more feature packed than the average landline.

First off it is a solid weighty phone that is comfortable in the hand and while pressed against the ear. Styling is minimal but not plain; it's quite sleek in black with silver trim. This goes for both the handset and the base unit.

The interface is where it most resembles a basic mobile phone, I wouldn't be surprised if this uses technology and software gleaned from mobile design. The interface is a combination of colour screen, numerical buttons, answer/hang-up, d-pad and menu select buttons. These can be used to access a menu system with the mobile phone hierarchy and input methods. This can take a while, when setting up the phonebook, as letters are chosen by cycling through the corresponding numerical button, something you might want to spend an afternoon doing, particularly if you want to use all 250 places. I found the button respnses a little bit slower than I would have liked, increasing data input time somewhat but not terribly annoying.

There are a choice of polyphonic ringtones for handset and base, some of which I found annoying and i would have a welcomed a standard phone 'chirp-chirp' sound but this wasn't included. Call sound quality is good and can be set to a suitable volume.

Battery life is good, meaning the handset can be left for days before needing to be returned to the base. You'll need to leave the handset in the base, for an initial charge for 24 hours before you can play with it though.
