Our old fashioned wired telephone finally gave up the ghost a week ago and, after much deliberation, we decided to get the BT Freestyle 750 Twin pack. We were initially dubious of the reliability of a wireless phone, and whether the extra features were worth the money. How wrong could we be! These phones are great, the have clear audio, easy to use features and are light to hold. The built in answering machine works a treat and is very easy to use. Also, when you have two handsets, they can be used as intercoms (or Walkie Talkies) so no more shouting up and down the stairs in this household! The buttons as large and good for either people with visual impairments or big clumsy fingers like me! Oh and the hard of hearing aren't forgotten as they have built in hearing aid support. The volume of the ringer (which can have it's tune changed) and of the call audio can turned up very load, which is great when using the hands-free feature. If you have Caller ID activated on your BT phone line (a free service), and have set up the Phonebook built into these phones, you will see the name of who is calling on the handset. Other features include call Screening, custom Ringtones in the Phonebook, a feature to help find a lost handset, rechargeable AAA batteries (which can be recharged in a battery charger as well) and 3 way conference feature. They also look stylish and fit in with just about any room décor.
So all in all we are very happy to have got these and would recommend them to anyone!
When you first get the phones they must be charged for 20 hours before first use, instead pop the AAA batteries in a fast charge battery charger and they'll be ready in less than an hour).
