I know this is not really DIY (opposite I guess - the alternative is running
phone cables everywhere :-)) but I posted in uk.telecom a few days ago but
have had nothing useful. As DECT phones have been discussed on here before
I'm looking for some advice...
I'm looking for a twin handset DECT phone pack for a christmas present
for my parents. Key requirement is two handsets and caller display *that
displays the name from the phonebook*
for incoming calls.
I did think that the Synergy3100 twin would be perfect but at 100 quid
most places its a little over my price - I was looking to spend about 80
quid for the pair.
Caller ID is essential - this needs to be linked to the phonebook entries
(as it is on the 3100) so there needs to be a decent sized phonebook. How
standard it this? I have heard rumours that not all do it...
Being able to make internal calls between the handset maybe useful. Speaker
phone would be nice but is not essential.
While looking on the BT site for the 3100 I notice that they have the Synergy
600 twin pack on offer for 60quid which seems a good price but I can't
tell if it does what I need. In particular, I am a little concerned that
the webpage offers a callid box to go with it - does this suggest that
the phones callid is a little lacking??
Any other suggestions? A 10 entry phone book is really no good - probably
40 min and it *must*
be linked to the callid feature.
Since posting this both the Synergy3100 twin and the Synergy600 twin
are now out of stock at BT (and they don't seem to be able to suggest
if/when they will have more!
