This telephone looks the part but unfortunately feels very cheap when you handle it. Despite this, I plugged it and gave it a go. The sound quality on it though was atrocious, so bad that I had to stop using it after just one phone call and go back to using my old phone. It's now sitting in its box and I don't even feel I could give it to a charity shop because of how bad the quality is. What a disappointment! Lesson learned though, you get what you pay for.
Superb item in almost every detail! Brought back many happy memories of starting in business, particularly the ringing warbler. So easy to set up. Very good value. I've seen them much more expensive from other sources. I would have liked a loud-speaking version so I could write notes whilst listening to instructions but so far nobody has come up with that option. As an electronic technician I would think it could be done relatively easily using an induction box and amp placed close to the phone. For banking you would need a phone which includes * and #. I've now fitted a BT speakerphone alongside my trim phone to fully cater for all my needs. As we say up North: "I'm right chuffed"
