Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The BT Paragon has a built-in SIM card reader/writer so there's no need to re-enter all your contacts into your new phone. Just insert your mobile's SIM card into the BT Paragon and copy all the numbers from there. It's also a great way to keep a backup of the numbers stored on your mobile phone.

The answering machine has two pre-recorded male and female outgoing messages (answer & record and answer only option) or you can record your own. You can playback messages via the loudspeaker or privately through the handset and you can screen calls. There is a memo feature so you can leave messages for other handset users and you can access your answering machine remotely and listen to your messages when you are away from home.

Send and receive text messages from your BT Paragon phone. A flashing light on the base, a message on the display and an audible alert indicate that new text messages have been received.

Your BT Paragon phone can store up to 200 of your most frequently used names and numbers to make dialling quick and easy. If you subscribe to a Caller Display service you can also assign group ringtones when you store directory entries - the assigned ringtone will then play when someone from a particular group calls you.

See who is calling you before you answer the phone. The calls list holds details of your last 50 callers, including the phone number and time and date of the call. If a number matches a stored directory entry, the caller's name is displayed as well as the number.

Box Contains

  • BT Paragon 650 corded telephone

I'm normally very tolerant of minor issues with technology products, but this phone has so many issues, I've taken the very unusual step (for me) of returning it to Amazon. I guess I should have believed all the other negative reviews. I bought this to replace a broken Paragon 500, which was a brilliant phone - ringtones assignable to each directory entry, loud ring, clear calls, sensible answer machine and menu system, clear LCD display: pretty much everything its so-called replacement isn't. The ring (once you can find a ringtone that isn't hideously embarrassing, which isn't easy given the appalling choice on this phone) is so quiet, even on full volume, that I can barely hear it even on my desk, with no chance in another room. The ringtones are only assignable by category, which is much less flexible than by directory entry, and you don't get to choose the ringtone for each category. Also, it starts ringing over a second after the other phones in the house, which is stupid, as it's plugged in to the main socket. The answer machine and menu system is incredibly counter-intuitive, and the reverse LCD display looks like it was drawn with a crayon. Call quality is very poor - I can hear myself breathing through the handset louder than the caller I am trying to listen to. And yes, I have the call volume turned right up. The build quality is very poor as well. Assuming it survived violent attack (quite likely if I'd kept it) I doubt this phone would last very long in normal home office use. I've always bought BT branded phone products in the past, because the design and build quality was a step above anything else on the market. No longer, it would seem. Ashamed, BT? You should be.

Apart from the drawbacks already noted in the two other reviews, I must add:
Backlight display switches off after a few seconds, so none of the status information, time etc. can be seen.
Only polyphonic ringing tones - conventional ringtones are not available.
BT helpdesk has confirmed that neither of these problems can be overcome on this model

I read many reviews on this phone and others. I could still be doing this now as there is so much info to take in these days before buying! I decided on key attributes that I wanted from the phone and anything else was a bonus or didn't mind about negative comments. My main reasons of getting the phone was to have an OGM recording, to remotely access any messages and connection for my headset at a good price. And i'm happy with my purchase.

It was easy to set up from adding the correct date and time to saving my OGM to saving names and numbers.

I agree that the ring tones are really bad, but if your at the desk you will be picking it up withing 3 rings anyway. The receiver does sit over the phone cradle and I assume this is done so that when you put the phone down, you know its secured properly as sometimes with others the receiver just slips off the cradle. Also be a bit open minded to comments. For example I read one review that said he didn't like the BT logo over the screen of the phone, it made it hard to see the information. Well it turns out that when I got my phone that the BT logo was infact a plastic anti scratch cover that you can peel off.

Remember you can always send it back if you are not happy with it but as long as you find your key attributes that you want to have within the phone the rest doesn't really matter.

Happy phoning!

BT have a real nerve letting such a badly designed and conceived product on the market.

On the plus side, the answerphone works well and it takes a SIM card, everything else is an ergonomic nightmare. The phone rings 5 seconds after any other phone, the number search is hopelessly slow, the screen backlights for too short a time to be properly useful, recall button doesn't work properly, choice of ringtones would be hilarious if they weren't so awful. I could go on. Mine's going on eBay tomorrow.

I should have looked at the reviews before I bought it. I would go as far to say this is the worst answer machine I have ever purchased.
The phonebook is extremely slow it is far quicker just to dial the number.
On occasions when you put your initial in on phonebook it completely ignores the initial and goes to 'A'.
The ringtones are ridiculous, not very loud we often miss calls because the phone is in the kitchen.
The sound is on high but it is very quiet and there is a dreadful humming on the line which is not there when we plug other phones in.
I have started to look for a better one.
Always bought BT phones but must admit this is a thumbs down from me.

Although the phone itself is ok and it does what it should do, the address book is a dead loss. Once you have entered the initial letter to look up a number there is quite a delay before the list shows up on the display. this is even mention by BT on the instructions. I returned the first phone I purchased as I thought it could be a fault but the replacement was as bad.

Also when keying in a number to dial there is a delay before you hear the tones dialling out.

Finally, you can only use the redial button on handsfree, if you pick up the handset first it doesn't work.

Other phones I've had from BT haven't have these poor design faults and BT should be ashamed to have allowed this model to make it onto the shelves.
