BT EDGE 1500 Triple Cordless Phone with Answering &hellip by BT
9 of 10 people found the following review helpful
With great regret we had to assign our Phillips cordless setup to the scrap heap after many years service. We looked for a similar product with the same features and so we purchased this model with the 4 handset configuration. Initially very pleased with it...nice big numbers with backlight...intercom facility...speakerphone...A few gripes about the programming however. Despite actually answering a call on one particular handset, all the other handsets record it as a "missed call" and so you have a steady build up of missed calls on each individual handset. So unless you are the one that receives the call (and answers it)then you are no better off knowing what calls have been answered or… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the hype, 15 Aug 2011

Found these at Morrisons when they were on offer for 5 or so. We now have them in the lounge connected to the TV, table lamp and home cinema system. Why is it that in this eco-conscious world that we live in today you cannot simply turn OFF appliances such as the TV. In some cases, the only option is "standby". Standby for what?...The world to end?...To save the next lounge potato from exercising his forefinger?..I really don't know! Having had my rant, I can honestly say that this device does save me fron clambering about on the floor trying to get to the mains sockets. Sorry, but this aint about laziness..its about convenience. A bit concerned at first that the remote would not be able… Read more
