BT Paragon 650 Corded Phone with Answering Machine


Easy to set up and use.

Returning the handset to its cradle is an acquired knack!

BT Paragon 650 Corded Phone with Answering Machine


It looks good

The ring tones available and volume were extremely poor, there was not the choice of a normal telephone ring tone to select, If we weren't very near to the phone we couldn't hear it, and we are not hard of hearing. We disliked it so much so much we...

BT Paragon 650 Corded Phone with Answering Machine


I like the colour and design of the paragon, also the functions and find it nice and easy to use . I'm glad I took my time looking at the phones, because it was worth the time to make the right choice.

BT Paragon 650 Corded Phone with Answering Machine


Wonderful to be able to store telephone numbers in its system

Not quite as handy as my previous Paragon 550. With that I could press a button to immediately see who my last caller was but it takes a bit longer to find that out with this. Also, it appears to be missing a redial button. Also, it is a bit more of a...

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.
