RINGER FAILURE

  (Rating Hidden)

Great phone - to start with; but after 9 months the ringer would not work for incoming calls. Tried all the resets but epic fail. Had a GIGASET before this one so it looks as though I will go back to that make.

Confused about call blocking

  (Rating Hidden)

Generally, this is a good phone, but I am now experiencing difficulty with my blocked calls on international numbers, as I have recently received silent calls from Eygpt and Columbia. In the Which review it advises that you can block calls by type (ie...

Buzzing

  (Rating Hidden)

We had great difficulty positioning the phones to try and avoid the loud buzzing - on page 72 on the manual it explains the problem - that the phone must be located at least 1m from any other electrical appliance - As one phone needs to be located by...

Re Maybe I just bought a faulty one?

I purchased BT4500 (5 location sets) after reading your positive review of the instrument. It is an excellent phone with particularly good voice reproduction. I wear hearing aids and it is compatible with them. A good buy prompted by your comments.

Maybe I just bought a faulty one

  (Rating Hidden)

When I was speaking to people on this phone they often complained that I sounded as if I was under water and I tended to use a corded phone instead. One reason that I bought it was for the caller ID display, but this only worked 1% of the time. I took...

BT caller display

  (Rating Hidden)

Because of the font size used to display the number of an incoming call only the last 7 digits are displayed. This makes caller display virtually useless.

Which warning about copying phone book is inaccurate

  (Rating Hidden)

The Which review says that phonebook has to be re-entered on each handset, so be aware of this when buying a multipack. We have a twinpack 4500, and contacts entered on one handset became automatically available on the other. Two points about this:-1)...
