Great phones


Bought these phones for my parents who aren't too good with technology, but they're getting on great with them as they're really easy to use.

Great phone


The sound quality on these phones is excellent. The choice of ring tone is pretty awful though, hence only 4 stars. Very high pitched and tinny sounding. I like the fact that you only have to enter the address book on one phone and then it copies...
