Q & As


BT Aura 1500 Digital Telephone and Answering Machine, Quad DECT 3.9 5 10 10
Good functional phones Like the stored names & messages being accessible from all phones. They are a bit chunky compared to other designs - therefore not as welcomed by all in the family. But for value and performance they do a great job. 28 January 2014
Very Pleased Very clear setting up instructions and so far after a week of use no issues to report. The phones are easy to use and the sound level for hearing conversations is fine. Particularly like the way the phone book is common to all phones. The intercom is good as it means I can order my coffee without having to leave my study! 01 November 2013
Very Poor Product Purchased for the extra phone, we have found this product very disappointing and will be returning back to John Lewis. 1. Sound quality of ring tone is really poor. Even on maximum setting, in a quiet house, the ring tone is poor compared to our current phone 2 Phone has a mind of its own. Sometimes you will receive a call, the caller can hear you but you cannot hear them. 3. Placed in a bedroom the brightness is very bright even set on its lowest setting. its like having a small lamp on ! 4. All phones are plastic but this product feels very cheap when using the keys. 12 September 2013
Not as good as other reviews suggest I was very disappointed with this phone mainly because my expectations were so high after reading other reviews. There are several irritating issues with this phone set: 1. They do not stand upright very easily when independent of their charger bases 2. there is a TERRIBLE lag between pressing any button on the phone and the handset actually responding to what you are punching in. 3. Quite frequently the phone screen simply goes blank and returns to the home screen but with "no signal" message appearing despite being within yards of the main base transmitter. 4. Point number 3, above, often occurred while I was trying to input numbers in to the phone's memory. Overall very disappointing for the price. 16 July 2013
excellent In June last year I purchased from JL a Gigaset C300A. It worked fine until recently when it developed a mine of its own. I contacted JL and within 30 seconds they had traced my original ordered. Of course I had lost the receipt! They offered my three options; full refund, replacement or select an alternative ( with a £15 refund as well). I chose the latter - BT Aura 1500 Quad. It arrived with 24 hours of the order being placed. Brilliant. This is by far a better quality product in all respects - design, quality of build and functionality. The Gigaset handbook was 76 pages long and being translated from Chinese ? was at times impossible to use. The BT guidance is 1xA4 . Again brilliant. 'Phones are easy to set up and use. I know it is more expensive than Gigaset like for like, but you get what you pay for. Thanks JL for the usual quality service. 28 April 2013
Excellent Phone Set Having looked at the good reviews I initially bought a Panasonic quad set of DECT phones. I was really disappointed by their light weight, poor speaker quality (callers were not identifiable by their voice) and answer phone system. These were promptly returned to the supplier and I purchased the BT Aura set from John Lewis. I've had them for several weeks and do not have a single issue with them. They look good, sound good and have a good answer phone system that is specifically designed for the UK. We have a large house and get a good signal in all phone locations. 22 January 2013
Excellent product Very simple to set up. Like the easy to read display. 06 January 2013
Excellent Smart neat looking phones with small footprint. Functions are easy to use & phone book that is registered to all phones without having to program individually is really useful. The answerphone & audio sound is very clear making it a pleasure to use. 30 October 2012
