Standard Warranty: 1-Year
Digital technology has made the home telephone a more sophisticated machine, with a clearer sound and additional features. Many of the digital phones we sell are cordless, and some incorporate an answer phone.
What's the difference between digital and the (older) analogue phones?
As with analogue phones,Digital phones still transmit on a radio frequency but suffer from less interference. Conversations are clearer and their range is usually wider. They're sometimes referred to as DECT phones, which stands for Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications.
Up to what range do they operate?
Most models operate up to 300m outdoors and 50m indoors, so you can use them, for example, in the garden. Factors including the weather and any physical obstacles, may reduce their effectiveness.
What extra features can you get on them?
Lots! The most useful benefit is that you can use up to 4 handsets from the same base unit; for example, use one phone in the hallway, another in the bedroom, etc. You still have the base unit, which connects to the phone socket, but the other handsets just need to run off a mains socket.
Most DECT phones are also GAP compatible, which means you can use any compatible handset with any base unit: e.g. a Panasonic GAP handset will work with a BT GAP compatible unit.
