Best Cordless Phone on the Market?


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys,

We are on the lookout for a decent cordless phone of which we will be purchasing two of.

Our last Cordless phone was deemed faulty because it was found to be inducing voltage into the circuit (Or something similar from memory).

Does anyone know of a high quality cordless phone which has the highest reviews at the moment and is the most recommended? Preferably one which is reliable and doesn't induce voltage wink .

Thanks for your answers

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

Out of interest, if we buy two of the same type of cordless phone, will they be on different frequencies (Will we be able to have them allocated to their own base station only)?

Not sure I understand the Q.

You can generally allocate any DECT handset, of any make, to any base station or be on auto.

If you mean having more than 1 base on one line, I'm not sure, but I imagine you can if you really need to in a very large house where the signal won't reach. My Panasonic handsets work way down the garden.

EDIT: Website I recommended would be able to help you by phone with any technical Qs; I found them very helpful.

Yeah that was the question.

Our bungalow is quite large and some of the walls are very thick so the old cordless phone we had, had quite a lot of signal problems.

I would of thought that it need to be enormous for modern DECT cordless not to reach.

I have a large house with proper interior walls and the one 5 year-old Panasonic Base reaches all 5 handsets scattered around the rooms both upstairs and down.

EDIT: They also do Long Range Phones with Repeaters.

Have seimans from this firm best price I found, plus a repeater in the garden shed ranges over 300m ok.

I've got those. Not the latest models, as I bought mine some time ago, but I haven't had any problems with them.

I think one handset is slightly quieter than the other, and its display a bit dimmer (no, they're not on different settings), so they're not a perfectly matching pair. But it doesn't really matter, as long as both work. The "quiet" one isn't too quiet to be used - just quieter than its mate.

I researched DECT phones at length earlier this year, and thought the Siemens and Panasonic seemed best.

But I could not find any phone at all with the feature I was looking for: an alarm that could be set to alert just before the 60 minute mark so that my call did not go beyond the free call limit.
