Great display and speakerphone
on 23 August 2011
Wanted a phone without answering machine, with a larger number display and speakerphone facility.
The numbers are much larger/easier to read on this screen than most others I looked at. The speakerphone is also one of the best I've used. All handy features when the eyes and ears are not working as well as they used to! Handsets also have a sound equalizer option to optimize the voice of the person phoning, though I haven't needed to use it.
Bonuses for me were the ability to select and send all the stored numbers from one phone to the other 2 thus avoiding having to enter them all again and again. It is also possible to store different numbers on different phones should this be preferred so in theory 3 phones could hold 300 different numbers between them.
Each phone can be named rather than plain old 1,2,3. Another handy feature is that if a call is answered on one phone another person can join in by simply pressing the answer button on one of the other phones. So a three way conversation is possible. Very handy if someone has already answered the phone upstairs. (There is also a privacy feature to disable this).
Handset can be used as an alarm clock and Each handset can be set to a different alarm time.
Uses standard AAA NiMH batteries which can be easily replaced when they deteriorate in a few years.
GAP compatible,up to 6 phones can be registered, so I could still make use of my old phones. Could even put one in the bathroom but why spoil the one safe hiding place in the house!
