not worth the price,
This review is from: BT Paragon 550 Corded Telephone Answering Machine - White (Electronics)the worst thing about this phone is that it is slow. it takes about a second to scroll through each name in address book, and it all adds up to seconds of your life wasted! also, the screen, which is such a major selling point on this model, is at times difficult to read and quick to fade.
on the plus side - the phone looks good. the buttons are large and work when you press them. and the best thing is that it has a dedicated address book button. my last model had a single button that toggled between address book and last number dialed. it was difficult to work and it just irritated the hell out of me. also, the answerphone has two voices, both male and female. and they're both quite sexy.
would i buy this phone again? no. although the answering machine records clearly and is easy to work i don't think the price is justifiable on this model. in future i will concentrate on a multiple DECT phone set which has a shared address book.
