Brilliant fantastic, highly recommended look really nice, buy buy.
Absolutely love it, yes initially there is an issue with speaker quality, but the bt helpline fixes it in a matter of minutes, ring them on the handset and they will even ring you back on your mobile to facilitate the software update, and they even ring you back on the handset to ensure that you are happy with the quality of the fix. I must admit that i bought it for the design, it’s a work of art, but i love the features, you can upload all your contacts from your mobile in minutes, which is great as a backup in case you lose, or don’t have direct access to your mobile for a period of time, also if your mobile is not to hand i. E upstairs or in the car, and you get a call from someone calling your mobile you can answer it on the landline ,or choose to make a call mobile call from the handset. The answerphone excellent, family in usa, so one of the main reasons for needing a landline with an answerphone is the time difference of course there are many other ways to contact internationally through social media these days but we still love a landline for overseas don’t we. Haven’t needed to test the call blocking facility yet, as nuisance calls seem to have dropped off quite considerably over the the last few months?. – change in the law or something i don’t know for sure, but i am confident that it will be work if needed. In short great phone for a great price, i have a feeling that they wont be available at this price for long, and yes you have to think how long will it be until landlines become a ‘redundant’ product?. But for me i will be pleased that i have one of these, as i think they will be the ‘trimphone’ of the future.
Does exactly what we wanted and seems to block all nuisance calls. Very pleased with the phoneset and amazon service i received. First phone was sent back due to a small manufacturing fault – it wouldn’t charge, one of the thin wire terminals in the base unit was bent. No problems with amazon, i organised online for them to send a replacement immediately and it arrived within 3 days which was pretty quick for my part of the scottish highlands. The phone has worked well from day one with no significant problems during setting up although there are occasional distorted phone voices which i knew to be highlighted as an issue before i bought the phone. The best aspect of this phone and the main reason for the purchase in the first place is that from the day we installed it we have not had a single cold call whereas we were getting between 5 and 15 a day before.
Previous reviews have been put right by bt. Bought these direct from bt, i noticed all the negative reviews and phoned bt as soon as they arrived to get the update. It was really straight forward, and the phones work fine. Love the ability to connect up to two mobile phones via bluetooth, but also the ability to either make or receive calls on the bt phone via your mobile. They look really stylish, and the call guardian feature is simply brilliant. I always read these reviews and generally walk away at the sight of three stars, however i really encourage you to accept bt have a fix for the reported problem, these are an absolute bargain at this price.
I would first like to make an important point with these phones,if you find the clarity of the phone is no good please phone there helpline on 0800 145 6789 as another reviewer has mentioned, as they can do an update firmware over your mobile phone and talk you through the steps on the home phones, try not to send them back straight away untill you have tried this. Also others have commented on how slow the phones can be to access certain things for example missed calls, the reason for this is due to other interference from other bluetooth devices, as this connects to your mobile phone, the same as other wi fi connections can alter the speed of your home network. I love these phones and the price i got for the twin set was brilliant. Easy to use, when entering a new contact it automatically goes to the second phone, idea of connecting your mobile works great, and you can have 2 different mobile numbers connected at one time. The block calling device is brilliant and have 3 different options to stop them horrible scam calls. Phone has 3 phone books and can hold 1000 contacts in each book, that’s impressive. Also a very simple answer phone system all in all this phone for the twin set price is brilliant and well worth the buy, would i have bought these at full price, not sure, but i am very happy with delivery, packaging, price and product.
BT 9500 Halo Nuisance Call Blocking Cordless Home Phone with Bluetooth and Answer Machine – Black, Twin Pack : Great phonesjust a little work to do. Once you get the instructions from bt product support on fixing the audio. I bought these knowing about the problem and that there was a fix for it – the price had dropped dramatically and these are great phones once set up correctly. Without the configuration problem these would still be priced a lot higher – don’t let this worry you. . Call bt, apply the fix ( takes about 2 mins ). . You end up with great phones for a good price.
