    Model: BT Verve 450 - Twin
    i was looking to update my phone as had a samsung cordless phone for 10 years and wanted 2 handsets - one for downstairs and one for the bedroom.

    the handsets are very slim in design and funky looking.

    they work straight out of the box and automatically configure themselves as main base unit and additional handset

    you can access the answermachine from either handset if you want to access messages or record a new message without having to be by the base unit itself

    the handsfree is very good and loud and allows you to dial out handsfree without lifting the handset from the base although this can be a bit fiddly sometimes

    the volume is very clear and the other person could hear me clearly without me having to shout really loud down the phone to them which you sometimes find on other phones

    the only minor gripe as another person has mentioned is that the keypad is not backlit although the display screen is backlt - but once you get used to the key pads this is not a major issue

    if it had a backlit kepad then i would have given it 5 stars but have given it 4 instead

    Model: BT Verve 450 - Single Verified Purchase
    After reading a number of different reviews on this phone I was in two minds as to whether to get it. Some reviews on other sites said the sound quality was poor, there weren't enough ring tones, the base and the handset ring tones are different. Well after getting the phone and seeing for myself I'm glad I didn't listen to those reviews. The sound quality is crisp whether on loudspeaker or not. On loudspeaker I've had no problems except when on the other side of a 10ft room (but at that distance I was still just audible) and if you want to use your phone as a sort of announcing system then I'd suggest rebuilding your room and fitting one in. There's a good variety of ring tones from the standard ringing to classic and techno. If you're annoyed with the base unit not matching the handset you can just turn the volume down to off, however I've found it handy to have on a low simple tone in case you want to put the handset on silent and forget to turn it back on again. At least with the two tones you can be sure to not miss you calls. The answer machine is great and has three functions. You can either have it off, have it set so that someone can leave a message or have it set to notify that you're not there but so that they cannot leave a message. The only function that I couldn't really test is the text messaging as this is dependent on you service provider and being in Jersey this is not currently supported. Aside from the technical aspects, the handset itself is sleek, lightweight and straight forward to use. The symbols are pretty self explanatory, one for a the directory, messages and speakerphone. The buttons are also large and easy to press. The only thing that some may not be happy with is the fact that the keys are not back lit, but in my opinion unless you're always making calls in the dark this is a feature that can be managed without.

    Model: BT Verve 450 - Twin Verified Purchase
    The kit's pretty well self-explanatory and easy to set up: the glossy black finish of the handsets is smart too, although, as other reviewers have noted, feels as though it would scratch easily.

    The two that came with my example are identical (none of the old `Handset 1' and `Handset 2' business - this is all programmed into the base station these days), are a little longer than modern mobile phones, but don't feel as robust - it's obviously not suited to chucking into a bag, then that's not what you're supposed to do with it. The batteries are a bit fiddly to connect, although the chip-puller tweezers from the trusty PC toolkit sorted that.

    The base station has a handy two-position standby mode, with the handset either sitting upright like the secondary handset(s) or flush with the casing.

    The choice of ring tones is skimpy at just two (unless anyone knows better) - for a bob more it'd be nice to have, say, a dozen to choose from: surely they don't cost that much? There's a fair amount of audible background hiss `on line' and the sound quality has a somewhat muffled quality.

    Continuing the skimpy line, the quick-start guide packed in the box is just that: download the full version of the user's manual .PDF from BT's website to broaden your scope considerably!

    Turning down the criticism knob a notch or two, the sound quality isn't as disastrous as some reviewers have claimed - at least with the set I have - although clearly some have had some serious issues with this aspect. That said, I do own up that it isn't up to the standard of my old BT Freestyle `phones.

    On the plus side, there are quite a lot of features for a low price, so you get what you pay for.

    Model: BT Verve 450 - Twin
    Bought these to replace ailing IDECT phones. Very smart to look at and nice and thin so easy to hold whilst they are quite wide so easy to grip.

    Reception very good.

    Fairly basic user interface but they are just phones after all. Especially like the way you can just copy all/one of the numbers from one phone to another automatically.

    Time,date on display and an alarm too.

    Childlock to keep those little tikes at bay.

    Downside is the text facility available. It must have taken me about 10mins to write a text that would normally take 1min lol. Dont think there is predictive text.

    Very good phones all in all.
