BT Converse 2200 Corded Telephone, Converse – problem with the wall mounting

This phone is a great corded version, it does everything i want a phone to do. It has an amplifier as well as volume control, plus handsfree speaker and is hearing aid compatible. It has the usual ten memory buttons that are typical of this style of phone. A good all round value phone for those of us who do not want to use digital apart from when using mobiles.

This is my third converse, and the best so far, over 10 years. I have found it easy to use, helpful for deafness, but wish i did not have to remove a digital hearing aid to add efficiency.

Nice phone but volume very poor cannot adjust any louder. Nice phone but volume very poor cannot adjust any louder.

Does all that it should and look ok – sensible largish buttons – does not have the (useful) function that ‘speaks’ the numbers stored in press button memories.

Very well thought out design. Large buttons for the partially sighted. 3 ring tones a bit mean, but sufficient. Volume on earpiece could be a bit louder. Overall vfm and i would recommend it to the older generation.

BT Converse 2200 Corded Telephone – White : Bought for an elderly friend. Wall hung and with large keys just what was needed and with a loud ring tone.

    What can i say, the phone works but not. What can i say, the phone works but not if you connect a headset to it. It drops into handsfree mode and won’t let you back on the headset. The supplier likes to ask questions about a headset that has functioned previous;y but not, it seems,interested in whether the supplied item is fit for service. So phone is so-so but supplier not so.

    1. Bt converse 2200 corded telephone white, loss of memory. Further to a previous review i wrote. I recently lost the numbers i had entered in the 11 memories when the line was dis-connected. I understand that it reverts to the pre-programmed numbers on memories 7-11 so be careful to overwrite them again. Re-entering the numbers is simple, but it is worth thinking about if your line or phone is disconnected. It is still a useful phone that can be wall mounted and generally ok.

    This phone is perfect for that. Bought a used version here for a bargain price to replace my much more expensive bt paragon, which had developed a loud buzzing sound that could not be explained by a bt engineer as anything other than the phone being rubbish. I use a headset for conference calls every day as i work from home, so needed a phone with hands free and headset socket. This phone is perfect for that. Volume is adjustable; important for me as i am partially deaf. There is no display on this, so my caller display doesn’t work, but the phone downstairs does that. The ringer is a straightforward ringer tone, unlike the paragon, which offered only an array of cheesy tunes which drove my husband mad. It’s an easy phone to operate – i don’t bother with programming numbers into memory as i have a brain for that, which needs the exercise. Overall i’m very pleased with it.

      1. Would have expected slightly more. The memory numbers are forgotton if you unplug (even for just 10seconds) which is frustrating if you need to readjust the wires. After 1-2 years the loudspeaker function has become a little un-predictable. Otherwise good as a backup wired phone.

    1. Bt converse 2200 corded telephone. Very good once you get used to it. Volume on hands-free is quite quiet, but very good for ‘hanging on’ or just dialling out. Then pick up the handset and the phone switches to it (remember to turn back to hands-free before you put the handset down if you want to go hands-free in a given call. If you don’t, you’ll get cut of).

    1. Now i’ve become a little hard of hearing, the amplify button on this phone means i no longer struggle having a phone conversation.

    1. Phone all features available. This phone offers wall mounting which seems to be a feature of the past. No batteries needed since there is no display does not flash annoyingly when a call is answered on another phone within the house. Beware template not quite correct when drilling holes for wall mounting.
