Price and Availability

When moving into our first flat there was obviously loads of things we needed to buy. Initially a house phone wasnít at the top of the list but after the first months mobile contracts came through with extortionate charges we realised it would be much cheaper to have a home phone as well. My first port of call as it usually in whilst shopping for these type of things was Argos, I was a bit overwhelmed by the choice as all I wanted was a decent cordless phone that looked good but wasnít too pricey. After a little looking around at reviews I settled on the BT Graphite 2100 which cost £24.99, I only bought the single handset as we live in a flat but theyíre also available in double and triple handset packs for those with more than one storey in their house.

BT Graphite 2100

The BT Graphite 2100 is quite a stylish looking black phone; itís got a very curvy design and charges on a round base station. The buttons, although theyíre not that big, are very clear and I should imagine that most people wouldnít have a problem using the phone. The display on the phone has a bright blue backlight and makes the text/ numbers shown very easy to read. The phone has lots of really handy features including a memory for fifty names and numbers, handsfree, caller id and call log.

My Experience

I found the BT Graphite 2100 very easy to set up, just a case of inserting batteries, plugging it in and letting it charge, a downside though is that it does initially need to charge for a full 24 hours before using. The phone doesnít take up much room on the side and does indeed look pretty good. The phone is very simple to use with very few buttons so itís not hard to do something wrong which is great for me as I arenít very technical at all. There are a few different ringtones but to be honest most of them arenít up to much and we just use the basic ring, the ring also isnít that loud even with the volume turned up, itís fine for us with a small flat but in a bigger house it wouldnít be much use although it can be carried round from room to room. Inside the phone retains signal up to 50m from the base and outside it is up to 300m, which is plenty enough range for us as I should imagine it is for most people. The in- call volume is easily adjusted and can go pretty loud which is great for those who are hard of hearing, the speaker/ handsfree function is also really useful as Iím often busy cooking or on my laptop and I donít have to worry about having the phone in my hand. The phone holds fifty names and numbers in its memory which for me is really handy as I donít tend to have a written note of peoples numbers, thereís also a log of the last ten numbers which have been phoned. The battery life of the phone is great, 10 hours in use and 100 hours on stanby, we charge ours every night and it's never run out.

Overall

Overall, the BT Graphite is a great little phone and delivers everything the average phone user needs whilst also being easy to use. The price is great as there are loads of handy features and the phone is suitable for a wide range of users. There are a couple of negatives to this phone but all in all itís a great buy.
