Q & As


BT Aura 1500 Digital Telephone and Answering Machine, Single DECT 4 5 5 5
Flawed product A neat attractive phone with, it seems, a fatal software flaw: the contacts list disappears after a while, leaving an infinite list containing just the first contact. Resetting the phone doesn't help. I have had two phones from BT, both exhibiting the same fault. Am in process of returning the second one. 17 December 2012
really helpful and convenient product Easy to set up and get going. Once familiarised with the menu's very easy to use. Long talk time and standby very good. 17 December 2012
Does the job Very simple to use. Barely needed the instructions to add names/numbers to the directory. Answer machine is very easy to use too. My home has thick stone walls and the reception goes fairly quickly once outside. I'd have liked a traditional ring tone though, which you're not given. 15 November 2012
Good You can hear everything clearly and the answering machine works brilliantly 31 August 2012
Very good small example of technology A very versatile little phone with many excellent features which I have found to A great asset. Only little niggle is that it doesn't have a long available distance from the base but is perfectly adequate for a normal household. 18 April 2012
