Bought one 3 weeks ago so haven't used all the features, however, I tried to use the hands free last week and it is 100% useless; in order for the microphone to pick anything up I had to put my mouth about an inch from it. There are no settings to change sensitivity so the only conclusion is a faulty handset.
A replacement unit has the same problem
I have emailed the technical help twice without reply and have phoned 3 times only to be on hold for 20 minutes at a time - gave up on each... (read more)

I purchased this phone for office use and I must say it is a fantastic little phone, the ring-tones are not the loudest however in a normal office environment they will suffice.
The phone is robust and feels well built (i.e. not cheap) - The phones overall size is not as expected when seeing the pictures; it is actually quite small, ideally BT should have produced a black model to go along with black office equipment however the white look is still stylish.

I needed a new phone for my home office and had the following criteria to meet: I need caller id. I need clear sound. I need one with an answer machine. I need hands free.
I need Caller ID so that if a client rings me I can answer with: 'Hi Jeff', instead of: 'Good afternoon, Web Forge, how can I help. Oh, hi Jeff'.
I can screen the numbers that I don't recognise hence give all those telesales calls that happen at dinner time the buck instead of wasting my time actually speaking to... (read more)
