If you just want a basic very easy to use telephone and answering phone this is perfect. You get 60 minutes recording time, with caller id and a good 15hour talk time. For my taste it is a great looking and quite functional phone, while not the cheapest phone its type, so far so good. One last point you will need to change the default ring tone, as it is annoying, there are other options for ring tones on the system.
I bought these phones to replace a previous set which had finally given up the ghost. I love the fact that they are easy to set up, just plug them in let them fully charge and away you go. The screen is nice and large which makes reading it very easy. I programmed our numbers into one handset and it sent the details to all 3 other handsets, no more having to transfer the numbers from one to another. I also use the facility that you can ‘group’ numbers together so that you can set different rings for different people so you know who is calling before you even look at a handset. All in all a very good buy and i am more than pleased.

Good phone with a decent answerphone. I previously used a bt studio and switched to the bt aura mainly because it incorporates a proper answerphone so i no longer have to use the bt voicemail facility. Although i managed with bt voicemail for some time i much prefer the new system. The phone is an improvement in other ways; in particular, the larger display is clearer and shows more information, the buttons are lit, and the battery life seems to be better. It is just as easy to program however the contacts can only be read by scrolling down and you cannot get to the end of the list by scrolling up as you could on the other model. This and the redial list which cannot be accessed by simply pressing the calling sign are my only reservations.
Compact, intuitive, simple to install and program. This actually improved the reception on our line. It’s a nice size and satisfyingly hefty in the hand.
Ordered this bt aura 1500 trio set on 10 oct and it was delivered by royal mail on 15 oct. The recommendation was that the batteries should be charged for 24 hours before using the phone, which i did, but during the charging period i was able to enter all my contact details. The user guide is one of the best i have seen in a long time. It is clear, concise and comprehensive. The system was simple to set up and worked without a hitch. Entering contact details into one handset automatically copies the entries to the other two handsets without any any fuss or button pushing. Similarly contact details can be edited on any of the handsets and changes are automatically picked up by the other handsets. Signal and reception is very good and i was able to register another make of handset without difficulty (though of course that additional handset does not have all the features that come with the 1500s). The answering machine is easy to set up and operate either directly, from the handset or indeed from a remote phone.
BT Aura 1500 Single Digital Cordless Phone with Answering Machine – Black /Chrome : These cordless phones are brilliant. The battery really lasts and they look very slick. To be fair i wouldn’t expect anything less from bt.
