I was looking for a twin cordless phone set, and bid for this set on Bid TV auction channel. I paid £20 + £6.99 p&p.
They were delivered in 5 days to my door. The box was an attractive Blue with pictures of the Phones and the functions listed.
The contents were 1x Diverse X10 base, 2 Diverse X10 handsets, 1 Diverse X10 Charger, 2 Mains Power Adapters, 4x AAA Rechargable Batteries, 1x telephone line cord, 2x Belt Clips,, 2x battery Compartment covers, 1x base Plinth, User Guide Booklet.
the Main Phone sits in a larger Grey base and the 2nd phone sits in a slightly smaller Grey Base which are reasonably stable. Both phones are identical and have Buttons 1 to 9 as well as the usual # & *. You can scroll through the menu options with the up/down button, recall button for use with switchboards, and there is also a secrecy button.
these Phones can store up to 50 name and numbers, up to 20 entry calls, 5 last number redial, has ringer melody and volume controls, keyguard lock, battery low indicater, up to 10 hours talktime and up to 120 hours standby. and are gap compatible. You can take the phone out in the garden as they have a range of up to 300 ft.
the instruction book is very comprehensive and takes you step by step through setting up the phones and how to use all the functions. i found it really easy to set the phones up.
The Bt Diverse X10 is a good solid phone the battery life is very good and the caller display is lit up so you can see the name and number of the person who is calling you.
the disadvantages i found are that the sound volume is not very good some times you can hardly hear the caller on the other end, and can be a bit noisy on occasion, it may be due to the quality and distance of the line!
On the whole they are a good practical phone and i would reccomennd the Bt Diverse x10 to potential buyers.
