Excellent

 

This is the second one of this model I have purchased. The first one I'd had for a long time and just wore out so I purchased the same model because I didn't want one with call blocker. It's very easy to operate and very good value and it's slightly...

Very pleased so far, but it's early days

Good phones

 

The first set of these phones had to go back as one of the phones wasn't 'linked' to the main base, but they are good, simple to set up, only thing I would say is the digital number display is difficult to read, but overall pleased with product!
