Got this to replace a very poor BT cordless phone and answering machine. This little thing looks better, works better, hold a charge, is simple to operate. Inother words, good value for money.

As with the reviewer below I bought this to replace a much more expensive but low quality BT phone. It is attractive and functional, and good value for money. The only disappointing feature for me is the display, which is slightly confusing and difficult to read. This is not a major problem, however, and I would still recommend it to anyone who is looking for a basic digital phone.

This is a cheap cordless phone with answer phone facilities and both functions work. The handset holds charge well and the answer phone records messages clearly. The base station is easily wall mountable and there's a nice bright flashing light when you've got a message. Messages can be played back on either the handset or the base station. There is a phone book feature and call log.

There are, however, a number of minor problems with the unit. The volume on the handset is quite low so don't get this if you're a bit deaf. The time and date of the call is stored with each message but this is only available on the display of the handset. The display is too small for both the time and the date so it alternates between them which is a bit confusing. After the answer phone has played a message it doesn't wait for you to delete it. The "delete all" option is easily accessible though. Messages are played in reverse order so if someone calls a second time with "just one more thing" you have to wait to find out what they are talking about - maybe what you want, maybe not.

There are only two speed dial keys and each must be given a name which must be different from the names in the phone book but the name you give doesn't appear in the phone book - very strange. I couldn't find a way to transfer a number from the phone book to speed dial. It would be so nice just to select phone book entries for speed dial. I don't see why they didn't go for 10 speed dial keys.

The call log records the number, date and time. I don't have caller ID so it can't record a number but still attempts to display the number first rather than date and time. The messages for "there is no number for this call" and "there are no calls logged" are confusingly similar.

I agree with the previous reviews, it's a great phone and excellent value for the price paid.

I took a star off regarding the answering machine alarm. I wish it had a sound beep to inform of new messages (it blinks a squared light) and also a led informing how many new messages.

Other than that, a great phone.

Good points: the handset looks really good, the base makes the answer machine easy to use, can hear very well, menu is starightforward, easy to understand.

Not so good: the ringtones are horrible, there is no speakerphone, took me forever to find out how to set up the voicemail message.

Good quality for value.

I have been using this cordless phone for a month now and in my opinion it is one of the best in the market in this price range. The signal coverage is pretty good. The only problem that I faced was when I tried to reregister the handset to the base and the instructions are not as clear as it should be. However the online catalogue was clear enough. So if you are planning to buy this phone, make sure that you download the online manual too.

This is an attractive, basic sort of phone with a good bright screen. The one I received, however, did not work properly. It would not reliably dial numbers of more than six digits. Philips tech support were quite helpful in telling me how to test whether the problem was theirs or a BT line fault. The tests were inconclusive so I returned the phone to Amazon and bought a BT one instead, which works fine. I have nothing but praise for Amazon's returns/refund system. Tremendous service!
