Need help on selecting a handset...

Hi,

I want to replace my cordless DECT handsets (currently BT XC 200) with a new set. I have some specific requirements and having trouble searching for the specifications via shopping sites.

What I am looking for:

- 2 cordless handsets, or 1 fixed handset and 1 cordless
- DECT
- Need hands free and/or an ability to connect some sort of headset
- Dont need answer machine
- Need the ability to store long phone numbers and pauses into the phone. Looking for more than 35 numbers/codes. My XC200 does this - but the amount of numbers you can store is limited to about 20.

Its this last requirement that is tricky to search for as it is not specified on most websites.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Neil

I have these:
click me

there very good, they have good range, they come in different number combinations (1,2,3,4,5 then you can get extra handsets)
- they are DECT
- they have headphone holes in the side, as well as hands free
- they have an answer machine, although you dont need one

im not quite sure what this means. You can have 200 contacts stored in each phone, but each contact is limited to 24 digits in the number

let i think thats answered your question, let me know if you need anything else

Re: Need help on selecting a handset...

Hi - thanks for this.

The bit about storing long numbers - I need to be able to store a phone number along with pauses (usually a comma) and then other number sequences.

So for example:

0800 12345678,,,1,,3,,3533#,,7005344,*

It is to login to automated telephone systems I use regularly.

So the 24 digits bit is the crunch for me - my phone seems to have only around 20. I was really looking for phones that have the ability to store many more digits...

thanks

Neil

Re: Need help on selecting a handset...

I think my phones nearly meet your bill apart from having an answering machine and only 32 digits. Ligo is a good store and you might find a suitable alternative there.
