BT 1200 single review

  (Rating Hidden)

Along with the BT 2200, this is one of BT's cheapest handsets. There's no answering machine, but you can still block calls. Does call quality take a hit to keep costs down or is this a cheap and cheerful handset? Read our review to find out.

Love the block feature

 

Bout these phones for my new house and they are great. Definitely do their job and I love the call block list. Only 4 stars due to it being a little difficult to access some info but that could be me

Not 'Hands Free'

 

When I purchased it, I didn't realise the product hasn't got 'hands free' . I am living without the function, but gets difficult when awaiting an answer to a company which keeps you on hold. Otherwise a very successful buy at a good price.

Product Specifications

This is the twin pack of the BT Equinox 1200; a fabulous digital cordless telephone incorporating a color LCD display with a look and feel akin to a mobile phone. It offers a fantastic specification at a competitive price, such as a multiple SIM Card reader, SMS text messaging, 3 games, five wallpapers and a 200 names and numbers directory. You will need to subscribe to the BT Caller Display Service for the caller display function on this phone to be activated. This phone is GAP compatible. Most of the digital phones are available as singles, twins, trios or quads so that you can have a phone in every room of the house without having to add anymore phone sockets! When sold together, e.g. a quad (contains 4 phones), they are already set-up to work from one telephone socket. If you purchase an additional (GAP compatible) handset, there is a short and simple process, outlined in the product user guide (included with your phone), to link your handset to your existing telephone system.
