BT 6500 Cordless DECT Phone, Good value for money

Love it and still works and still a long battery life off the base.

Generally ok but nothing to sing about. A few early observations — generally more plasticy/’cheap’ in the flesh than it looks in the marketing pictures – ‘metallic’ looking features are particularly disappointing. – maximum ring loudness is just about adequate but would be better if more volume was available. – much crowed about ‘excellent sound’ sounds average at best to me. – phones don’t sit in their docks particularly securely leaving some potential for error and accidents. – very rarely odd things happen such as blocked numbers ringing through – this is very annoying but is easily fixed so far by power down and up.

Exellent phone set with lots of features. Clear sound, easy to use and looks good. The best part is the shared phonebook. No more entering dozens of numbers in each handset – it synchronises them across all 4. It once showed a call came in at 5:63pm, so either it’s broken or we’ve moved to a slightly larger planet with a longer day. Edit – just found out you can also transfer calls between handsets which is really useful for a large house although the butler feels unloved.

Ok but illuminated numbers would help. Good replacement for my broken phone but i do wish the key pad illuminated in dark. Something i only noted when i came to use it at night.

    Very well-made solid construction, with bright, clear screen. Easy to use without the real need to refer to instructions. I like that fact contacts need only be added to the one handset. Call blocking is easy to set up.
