BT Paragon 650 Corded Telephone with Answer Machin


BT phone ok - serves the purpose, but definitely do NOT like the ring tones available - prefer standard 'old fashioned' ring tone or option to select own ring tones from other sources

Good value


Easy to set up and get started. The phone's sound quality is excellent. Handsets feel a bit light and cheap, but are actually OK. Difficult to read info in small window of handset. Small flashing symbol to say there is an answermachine message - would...

BT Paragon 650 Corded Telephone with Answer Machine


I do like the BT Paragon 650 Corded Telephone but it is not the easiest one to use as the instructions are minimal and difficult to follow. It states, for instance, that it has speed dialing but I have not been able to activate it so far. The clock...

Product Specifications

The BT Paragon has a built-in SIM card reader/writer so there's no need to re-enter all your contacts into your new phone. Just insert your mobile's SIM card into the BT Paragon and copy all the numbers from there. It's also a great way to keep a backup of the numbers stored on your mobile phone. The answering machine has two pre-recorded male and female outgoing messages or you can record your own. You can playback messages via the loudspeaker or privately through the handset and you can screen calls. There is a memo feature so you can leave messages for other handset users and you can access your answering machine remotely and listen to your messages when you are away from home. Send and receive text messages from your BT Paragon phone. A flashing light on the base, a message on the display and an audible alert indicate that new text messages have been received. Your BT Paragon phone can store up to 200 of your most frequently used names and numbers to make dialing quick and easy. If you subscribe to a caller display service you can also assign group ringtones when you store directory entries - the assigned ringtone will then play when someone from a particular group calls you. See who is calling you before you answer the phone. The calls list holds details of your last 50 callers, including the phone number and time and date of the call. If a number matches a stored directory entry, the caller's name is displayed as well as the number.
