This review is from: RTX DUALphone 3088 for Skype (No PC Required) (Electronics)
Like others, I bought this phone based on the good reviews, but because I lived abroad, wasn't able to return it when it went wrong soon after purchase. I cannot figure out what the problem is but as soon as you take it off the handset to make a call, it drops out, so presumably the handset doesn't charge properly. I've moved back to the UK and am giving it a second chance but that hasn't helped - it's sitting on my desk making an annoying double beep noise. Do not buy this model!

I am having exactly the same problem, the handset switches off as soon as I press "0" to make a call. Battery is fully charged and OK to receive calls. Shame as the handset is not even 2 years old, not a good quality product. For £80 for a phone handset I was expecting it to last a bit longer. I won't replace the handset, moved to Vonage instead. Quality of their equipment appears a lot better (and free! you have to use a normal telephone handset with the box) and the call quality is superb.

I have the same problem on one 3088 phone. I have tested and changed the batteries so it's not that. Checked the screen cable is tight. It lights up and starts charging but shuts down when removed from the cradle. Will try using an ear piece with it in the cradle next. Shame they don't repair them as there is very little inside.

I had the same problem with two phones, but new good rechargeable battery's put it right. But the ringer on both my phones stoped working after two years or so. I had to buy 50 new speakers (only needed tow but at £10 for one or fifty wholesale for £15-50 delivered to my door it was worth it. Now all is OK & am very happy with them. P.S. you need to be good with a soldering iron.
