5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for landline and Skpye calls, 26 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: RTX DUALphone 4088 (Electronics)
I accidentally bought the Additional Handset first time round, and then bought this after being helped by other Amazon buyers when it didn't work. This box comes with all the necessary cables, unlike the additional phone which only comes with a base and power lead. This phone has pathetic instructions (as does the additional handset) but I was able to connect it all up without the aid of a man, which is unusual for me. The manual can be found on line, however. Basically, you put a cable into the phone line on the modem type box that comes with it; a cable into the power slot and an ether type cable into the third slot, making sure to put the other ends into power, modem and phone line. I had trouble getting it to work at the beginning, as I had been sent two dud batteries (rechargeable) which did not take nor hold a charge. I contacted the online support (via e-mail) for the product and they were very helpful with suggestions as to what I was doing wrong. I have the handset set to "always ask" rather than just to 'Skype' or 'Landline' as the preferred setting for calling out, so that I can easily choose if I want to make a call using the landline or Skype, otherwise you have to choose by going through the menu, which is annoying. I have set different tones for incoming calls so I know if it is landline or Skype. The sound quality, for me, using both landline and Skype is excellent. I have set up the additional handset rather than sending it back, as it could be useful in a different part of the house. The round dial on the front has 4 functions (history, search,intercom,outgoing calls) which is handy if you don't want to run through the menu. As yet, I am unsure whether you can choose which options you can have on the front dial like you can do on mobiles for certain key functions. You can even call the additional handset if you want to call someone in another part of the house, which could be perfect for getting my husband out of bed rather than shouting up to him. My only regret is not getting a Skype phone sooner.
