Does what it says and more
on 10 May 2014
Generally excellent, but as usual has far more features than necessary, and instruction book (at least there is a book) complex. Many elderly people would not be able to cope, although most competitors seem to be as bad in this respect. Ringtones, whilst many, at least on the handsets are mostly either "poppy" or futuristic. Pick the wrong one and you won't know if Radio Ones come on, the washing machines finished, or the phone is actually ringing. However there are at least one or two that are OK, but unless you switch the base station ringtone off you will have at least two different tones echoing throught the house.
Having nit-picked, volume control of tones and speakers is good, and sound quality is as good as any. Intercom feature is useful and easy to use. Haven't used the answer machine yet (can be de-activated) as I'm trying to devise a rude message for unsolicited calls, but we receive few anyway, and this phone actually hasn't let any through as yet (6 days).
