How did you manage to get it so cheap?


I renewed my existing service which was out of the minimum term.

At first they put me on the 'All rounder' package which has some restrictions on streaming etc but I wasn't informed of this at the time of renewing. After finding this out, I phoned up and complained then threatened to cancel the service due to not being given some very vital information. Particularly when I had a pretty much already had a fast and unrestricted service from them.

After a few minutes of a pleasant but insistent chat they changed my package to the top level package, 'The works' ,all for the same price.

Worth a try if you weren't informed of the new 'throttling / traffic shaping when taking any of the services.

I now get:
Unlimited eve & w/end calls
Free 24/7 UK technical support
Contract 12 months
Download Speed Up to 20 meg, depending on your line. I live with 100 metres of an exchange
Upload Speed Up to 2.5 meg
Usage Allowance Download as much as you like (there's a fair usage policy of 250GB whereas the 'All Rounder is 100GB)
Web Texts 500
Free Mcafee Security Licenses 5
Static IP Address No
Router Our best wireless box 'N' Class

I get the phone, with unlimited eve & w/end calls, and BB on the highest tariff 'the works' for only £9.50 a month as an O2 customer. The 'all rounder' package has some unwelcome restrictions for some users particularly between 4pm and 12 am (mon-fri) 12pm and 12 am (w/ends). For info on the traffic shaping visit here

I personally think that virgin media is doing a better deal than this at the moment:Free telephone line installation for virgin (£80 for o2 if you don't have telephone line)£50 CREDIT6 months half priceFree internet securityFree Virgin Media Hub wireless modem routerUnlimited4 weekend calls to UK landlines and Virgin mobile£65 from top cash back.With installation fees If you take the up to 10mb speed will come £16,75per month and that is to all customerswith installation fees and quidco o2 comes to £21.99per month for o2 customers and £27 per month for non o2 customers
Did you know that VM is the most expensive phone provider in the UK? Any call outside your allowance is 2 to 3 times as much as BT (UK and International). You can check this at the new moneyexpert.com phone checker.

I stand corrected, these are certainly cheaper at pixmania, and probably everywhere else!
Can't remember exact price but bought from tescos about 2 weeks ago 8523 (3 x dect) for about £50 worth of tesco clubcard points.
Not the best deal as you can get them cheaper elsewhere. Costco were recently selling them for £82, but for those that don't have a Costco card, you can get them for £91 delivered from pixmania.
I recently bought the same set from amazon marketplace for under £80, so it pays to shop around a bit. They are well worth considering if you are looking for high spec, great quality telephones.

bear in mind it has problems with ported numbers. It is great for 3 of the 4 phones in our house but one with a number ported from voda to t-mob doesn't receive! BT's only response was - there are problems with ported numbers!

Don't understand ..... so you have a handest you ported from vodafone to t-mobile and it doesn't receive SMS messages? How is that BT's problem?


no idea but I went round the houses with T-mobile and BT for months and they couldn't resolve it. It kept getting passed about and in the end BT said its a prob with their system. Not all ports are affected, just some. don't know why but its irritating and cripples something for me that is otherwise useful.

Damn! Didn't realise there was cashback for getting just landline from BT as it comes under BT total broadband on Quidco.. would definitely have gone for that otherwise..
suspended
virgin all the way, good value products :thumbsup:
I assume the six bottles of wine are provided before sign-up and it is a condition that all six are consumed immediately prior to commitment because BT are aware that the prospective punter needs to be completely hammered before they would rationally commit to such dreadfully poor value BT products? Maybe BT are also hoping that a drunken customer will not notice the rolling contract renewal as well.

This is probably the least hurtful deal that you can hope to achieve if you absolutely must give BT your custom, otherwise consider other alternative such as http://www.directsavetelecom.co.uk/new-telephone-line.html.
BT suck period!

Panasonic are fer better quality than these.


I've got a panasonic dect and so has my brother whilst technically they are good phones after average wear and tear the '3' button wears down so you are pressing it harder and harder for it to work and inevitably you end up with 333 on the screen.
Not that we use this number excessively! But something I've noticed on his and my phone.
So I'm going to give these a go.

Johnski;8539930
OK I do have to admit that having used Caller ID for the last 10 years it is a bit odd when the phone rings and it just says 'External Call' on the screen. Then again sometimes it's a nice surprise when you don't know who is calling :roll: and an even nicer one when it turns out to be marketing/cold calling :p Unfortunately turning off the Caller ID feature means that you aren't able to receive SMS on your landline, although still able to send I think.

As you say some features are important to some people, whilst others are not. I know that people who have many friends and/or relatives abroad are swayed by such things like inclusive international calls so will be tempted by these offers.

Can I ask why you think the O2 deal is not what it's cracked up to be ? I mean for £12.50/month you have nearly everything call-wise included.




A friend is in the same situation - no BT phoneline - and wanting to move from cable. She phoned the Post Office and she claims they told her that if she wanted them to install a new line for £110 she would be tied to a contract with the Post Office of 18 months duration. I don't know how true this is, probably best to speak to them yourself. If you are already with or move to the Post Office for your phone there in no minimum contract period - you can switch whenever. If you want to totally de-activate/cancel the phone line then you have to tell the PO 15 days in advance so that they refund and remaining line rental. ***** I've just phone the PO myself and asked about a new line installation. They confirmed it's £110 and that there is NO MINIMUM CONTRACT. I was told that once the service is up & running with the PO you can move to a different telecoms provider any time you wish, so my friend is wrong ! *****


I actually phoned O2 sales yesterday. The woman I spoke to checked my phone number and advised that I could move the phone service to them. She said that as it stands O2 - like the Post Office - just take over the line & billing. She said that the line is left as it is, it is not connected to any LLU equipment as I've seen mentioned elsewhere in this thread, but I wouldn't know if this is true on a nationwide scale. I just seems that they take over the line & billing and that's it. Also it was confirmed that O2 do not do new line installations, so the Post Office route is one way quick way of getting to O2.


I phoned O2 sales on 0800 230 02 02 and the person I spoke to seemed to know her stuff. So if anyone is interested best to phone and ask if you are able to transfer.


I don't think its a bad deal and I think I will move to them in the future. I'm gonna wait see if they offer cashback via tcb quidco before I jump

I switched my Nan to post office as BT charging her for not paying direct debit.
Caller display is important to me and reading the thread I'm not alone with that. The inclusive SMS are pointless to me as are the international calls ( a bonus to some I'm sure).
I worked for Openreach (now contracting for them) for 6 years so I'm well aware of how the BT group run, however I don't think the o2 deal is as good as it's been bigged up to be.
For me adding £1.75 a month for caller display is a big thing. Sky and BT both offer this service free of charge.

Caller ID not too important for me. O2 phone me about this yesterday and said that because I havent got a BT line active they recommend I get the Post Office offering and then switch over as it's a rolling 30 day contract!

Although, looking at the post office deal, £12 a month with calls to over 40 different countries ain't bad! (not that i'd use it)

Interesting... volume is a particular point... I am not what most people would consider deaf by any standards, but a lifetime of Tuba playing near very loud percussion has left me with some hearing loss, just like industrial deafness, and phone calls are the No.1 problem (closely followed by PA systems, and picking out voices in conversation in a noisy place!)

The Panasonics are the best by far I have found so far, if I use it in Loudspeaker mode especially, and mine has a headphone socket too, although that is a little disappointing. I tend to use VOIP or Voice on MSN Messnger rather thaan normal POTS calls when I can, as it is far better sound quality than ANY normal handset, but it isn't always convenient.


I checked with the aged Ps and their phones are Amplicon PowerTel 500 - they bought them off the RNID website. Quite expensive but they saved the VAT 'cos of mums deafness... ...not sure whether tuba players qualify :whistling: They do appear to work as a phone conversation with mum is now almost 'normal' - have to remind her to "press the 'button'" but then I hardly have to repeat myself for the remainder of the call ;-)

Not quite so there are phones better even than Panasonic. I can't rember the brand - but my parents have just bought a pair of DECT phones for about £85 especially built for the elderly. They have a great easy to read display; large keypad; can be extremely loud (my mums partially deaf) and have a graphic equaliser so you can tune the sound to your hearing and save the profile.

They even look good and put my new Panasonics to shame...

This "bargain" has just brought back terrible memories of experiences with these phones. I could only recommend people stay away from them, however if someone did want to take the plunge tesco has another idect twin pack on offer for £25 instore which look a bit better. But for all the reasons people have mentioned - keep your distance.

if so then there are plenty of providers out there doing this.
If there is no ppm charge then this is a great deal

You could use an 0870 or 0845 can be free but the caller will pay instead.

Not any more, the owner of an 0870 has to pay for diversion as of August 1st!

First Post, but hope this is of help to someone.
Free call diversion from a land line number to a mobile has been available from talk talk/ onetel for over 5 years.
We have 2 onetel mobiles (£4.99 a month) and a onetel landline with call diversion active (£1.75) a month. Any calls to your onetel landline can be diverted to either mobile at no cost to you.
We ran a guest house for 8 years, and after one year of call diversion with BT switched to Onetel. saved an absolute fortune. Not just diverted calls, but any calls between the landline and the mobiles are free.
Hope this helps someone!

I think you'll find that your company was footing the bill for the forwarding call to your mobile. The original caller only ever pays for the part of the call they make. In your case, to the landline...

Got to say after 8 years with Virgin I wouldn't switch. Only ever had 1 or 2 issues in that time. The last one was when my 7 year old Motorola modem died, a quick call to their technical support (which is free from a virgin line) and they sent a replacement next day.
I download a few tv shows each week, stream and general browsing on my 10Mb connection, and never suffer any loss of speed or service.
I know everybody has different experiences but I couldn't fault them.


i'm with Richierea on this one, been with virgin for over 10 years no complaints with the services or products. any minor issues that have occurred have been dealt with straight away. they even sent me a hdmi lead free when i got the V+ box!

Glad to hear you have having a better time than me. Their technical support is in Mumbai. So if you need to query a bill, you are fine. If you need to report a fault (on secret maintainance sunday for example) you may as well save your premium rate phone call, and not bother.

It's amazing how experiences differ. Any support call I have made seems to be somebody in Wales. (Wales is still onshore unless the Severn has severely flooded) I've had 100% reliability and they keep reducing the price. Wouldn't deal with anyone else.


Got to say after 8 years with Virgin I wouldn't switch. Only ever had 1 or 2 issues in that time. The last one was when my 7 year old Motorola modem died, a quick call to their technical support (which is free from a virgin line) and they sent a replacement next day.

All that is great. Thanks for the info.

Nothing wrong with what you have said and i don't doubt that there may be better VOIP services out there - can't say its my bag and i'll bow to your superior knowledge on that.

All i'm doing is posting a phone that is practically half price than anywhere else right now, pointing out that the vast majority of reviews for it are good ones and those reviews are based on full price.

Meh...beyond caring really. :)
Do continue to be VERY WARY of the "VoIP" facilities of these phones - haven't double-checked this model, but previous such phones have been physically & logically tied in to a SINGLE/MONOPOLY SUPPLIER of VoIP service = NOT what you want at all.

So as advised by others, don't buy it on the basis of dual functionality as you will likely be very disappointed.

No there are NINETEEN reviews of this phone on Amazon.com averaging 4 stars.
You seem to have found a bad one...well done :thumbsup:


If I lived in the USA, I dare say I would read US reviews! I live in the UK, this is being sold in the UK so I look for UK reviews first, and can't think of why I would fire up the US site anyway, especially for something so regional as a phone.

As it happens these phones have been posted on this site so many times, (seeing as Panasonic seem to be getting rid of them!) who needs to look at any reviews, they have been discussed to death on this site eg.

As it is, what was wrong with what I said?

Is the VOIP functionality any use here? Is it cheaper than other VOIP through ordinary SIP providers? It seems to me it is as limited, and potentially as expensive as Skype :-(

Someone on one post mentions the cost to UK numbers via JOLT, the VOIP service - as it happens I am paying ZILCH on VOIP, so is it cheaper than that?

"Good reviews at Amazon where this VOIP/Landline Phone is £65......"

You mean there is ONE review! http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/product/B000PCH4FW/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt/276-3476534-6908251?_encoding=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

A more useful view of the VOIP function is here, (the answering machine version):

While Panasonic DECT is the best, the VOIP functionality of this range is a waste of space - it is with one expensive service, so that aspect of it is dead as a dodo - effectively this makes this just a single DECT phone, so needs to be judged in that context.Better Panasonic DECT offers come and go often enough.

A lot of people get confused with this so dont worry, your not the first and wont be the last


I took the stance that if you are already on BT Option 2 then this is a way to get 12 months of it for free! But people dont look at it like that and I miss titled it to be fair... should be:

Are you on BT Option 2? If so get 12months FREE here ->


Some people are just cold, cold people :-(

sorry guys. Any chance someone (MOD) can move this to the Hot deals forum instead as yes your right you still have to pay something. :oops:

is this having speaker phone???


Just figured out how to use the speaker phone. just press the call (green button) again whilst in the call. press again to go back to handset. Nice feature :thumbsup:
I used the infrared to copy a ring tone on to the phone. everything went ok. except when i try using the ringtone or even just highlight in the menu on the phone. the phone reboots its self. everytime.
Tried resetting base taking batteries out.
Can't even get the ringtone to open so i can delete it.
I can access other tones i have downloaded to the phone and the ones built in, but the phone reboots everytime the other tone is selected.
Phone works great. just want to delete the problem ringtone.
whyme
How do you reset the phone back to factory settings? can only find the resetting base. Can't delete a ring tone. Won't even let me open it without rebooting the phone.
Thanks in advance.


Have you tried removing the battery for any length of time? Off the top of my head I am not sure... sorry. The best I can do is check the manual, but I guess you would have done that already :?
Bump^

Hope someone can answer that question for you whyme :)

if you download a fair bit steer clear, if you just surf then this will be ok. 40gb a month limit is tight.
Been with TalkTalk Broadband about two years now..........


Had no problems, and got another talktalk broadband contract after I moved

Very satisfyed with talktalk

However a different story with BT, nothing but grief from those clowns......

I ask ya, after leaving them (due to poor price and service) to get at least a dozen calls...... asking me to "rejoin them".......... Is totally out of order!

If those muppets at BT had got their act together in the first place, they would not have got millions upon millions of customers leaving (like me)

Rant over! :whistling:

The amount of people i've spoken too with TalkTalk problems is scary.
I just signed to Tiscali 8mb broadband and line rental and all day and evening calls for £19.99 a month
All ill say is you'll regret anything to do with talktalk!
