Twin Phones

 

I bought these phones for my mother,(77)so they had to be easy to use,and practical. They passed on both counts,no problems using the address book to make calls,and with a large enough and clear display for elderly eyes,made them a breeze to use.Ring...

Philips CD1501B/05 Telephone - Twin.

 

easy to use and set up, they do exactly what the description state. Nothing flash, but that wasn't what we I looking for. Only thing I don't like is the orange screen light. Good purchase though and I would recommend.

cordles phone

 

The phone is ok but the buttons are hard to press as they are so soft. We took ours back as my mum has arthritic fingers and could not press the buttons. phone nice and if it was not for that then would have been ok. We went back to BT phone instead.

bargain

 

The ideal replacement telephone for my old mum. No complicated answerphone, etc, to worry about - straightforward. Needed me to set it up however but that was easy. Wouldn't work with old telephone's cable but the one supplied was fine. It all worked...
