Style Name: Trio Verified Purchase
I had my phones arrive yesterday, I found the packaging just enough to keep the products safe in transit but not wasteful and equally the instructions were very compact and straight forward (nice to have just the instructions you need and not a massive wad of paper in 50 languages).

Out of the box the contents are very simple 3 power adaptors, 3 phones and 3 phone docks one with a build in answering machine. All of the parts seemed well made, the phones were quite weighty and the buttons felt like they were good quality.

Each phone was docked and plugged as suggested by the instructions (they did come with a small charge). An hour later I spent time programming the first phone, the menus are very simple / somewhat basic. I set the ring tones, named each phone 'living room', 'kitchen'..... I then programmed in a load of phone numbers. The best bit in my opinion was then the ease of transferring the phone book to the other two handsets, simply select 'copy all' from the menus, select a handset to copy to and then accept the transfer on that other handset (the transfer took about 1 minute). You do need to set up the ring tones / volumes on each individual phone, these can't be copied over.

Another one of my favourite features was the internal intercom function (assigning it a Simpsons ring tone) it is perfect for calling the kids down for dinner on the top floor of a town house, or calling the missus from bed to tell her to turn the TV down.

In use through the intercom, external calls and on speaker phone, the voice and line is very clear.

An excellent product on many levels for a very good price, thanks BT, thanks Amazon.

Style Name: Trio Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is the best land line telephone I've ever owned. I've been using it for a couple of months now. It's very easy to use. The speaker phone facility is excellent and very clear and it can be turned up to quite a loud volume too; this is what gives it the edge over the other phones I've had (Philips and Panasonic so they were good phones). I can use this phone for conference meetings. It's the best looking phone I've ever owned too. Very sleek. The look is important to me as the phone has to sit next to the TV in the living room because I've just switched from BT to a tv and broad band telephone service. I think the new phone line is much clearer than the old one in any case and this phone set delivers all the benefits in full. Speech is crystal clear and my callers have commented on how clearer my calls are too. Technology and design have moved on and the easy operation of the phone takes something from mobile phone design. I'm only using one extra handset and this is fine too. All in all an excellent telephone set and highly recommended.

Style Name: Trio Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Compared to the previous cordless phone I had, this new set is very good indeed. Both sets are From BT, but the design in this latest one is much more sleek and also the arrangement and size of keys around the handsets is much more ergonomic and the numbers are clearly visible even for people who's eyesight might be letting them down with age.

When holding the handset, the weight is good (not too light not too heavy) and the casing feels like its well made and sturdy.

The set up is very simple. As easy as 1, 2, 3 .. Literally. I plugged the home base and placed one of handsets on it, and it immediately & automatically coded it "handset 1". Plugging the 2nd base (satellite) unit, and then placing another handset on it, automatically set that as handset 2, and so on with the third (handset 3) when doing the same with the other satellite base. You need to make sure that all them are allowed 24 hours to charge as instructed in the easy to follow booklet (included).

After the full charge, I just connected the base unit to the telephone socket (you need to make sure you have power point socket or extension within a metre and a half of the base unit otherwise the wires won't reach), listened for dialling tone which was fine, and this also meant that the satellite handsets were also operational.

The various programming and ringtone and answer machine options are easy to follow from the instruction booklet.

The sound quality both from external calls, and when using the handsets as internal "walkie talkie", is crystal clear.

A useful option each handset has is to replicate phone book content from one to another.

Style Name: Trio
I can't speak highly enough of these phones!easy to set up,the handsets look good with date and time displayed and a timer function. The answer phone is neat and easy to use,different ring tones can be allocated for when family,friends ect are calling and we can now see who is calling as the name is displayed on handsets which is the reason we bought these phones as we've recently been the victim of a scam from America now when they persist in phoning we can chose not to answer. (although very tempted to shout abuse at them!) Answer phone messages can be listen to when away from home and the handsets work down the end of our garden which is approx 120ft and we like the intercom feature between phones so I really recommend this item !!!
