Q & As


BT Aura 1500 Digital Telephone and Answering Machine, Trio DECT 4.3 5 13 13
Excellent, very pleased with them. Bought the phones after reading good reviews for them. We are very pleased with them. Very easy to set up, put names and numbers into one phone and they are transferred to the other two. Nice big key pad, intercom etc. does everything. The only slight whinge, we have one phone in the bedroom and the light from the phone face illuminates the bedroom, not really brightly though. It would have been nice if it had a dimmer on it. Otherwise a great product. 05 November 2013
Easy! Despite some negative reviews, we've had no problems with this phone. It was really easy to set up and the functions are intuitive and easy to use. Clarity of sound is great and good battery life as well. 16 October 2013
Excellent products After reading some of the reviews. I was in two minds if to purchase this product or not, in the end I went for this product as I needed a new phone in the kitchen, I found this phone so easy to set up and use, and it's crystal clear when you are talking, at present I can find no fault with this phone. 11 August 2013
Good phone, but now faulty for the 2nd time ! Purchased this phone in September 2012 and after an initial easy set up we were pleased with it. After 3 months the telephone memory started to delete names and numbers and eventually ALL names and stored numbers had disappeared. JohnLewis happily swapped them over. However the same fault is now happening again, and all the names and numbers we had stored over 40, have now disappeared once again. Clearly there is an issue with the memory storage. I shall be returning them to JL and asking to be replaced with a different make and model 27 March 2013
Really poor quality control on product Having read glowing reviews on these phones, I ordered a set via click and collect, as we needed phones immediately to replace our broken ones. On setting them up it was clear that the phones were faulty, as verified by the sales assistant at John Lewis, where I had to drive 25 minutes to 36 hours later in order to return them. Pretty poor. Can't believe such expensive items aren't even properly checked before sale. 18 March 2013
excellent price Very pleased with the product , very prompt delivery and the price was better than your competitors. 07 January 2013
Trio dect Very good product read the reviews of it and can honestly say that they are as good as other people say. Easy to set up, lots of useful tips and shortcuts. Highly recommended. 01 January 2013
Excellent Phones I bought these to replace a previous handheld BT set and cannot believe how much better they are. The handsets feel more robust, the voice clarity is excellent and there is a far greater volume range than on the older ones. Clear instructions make setting them up very easy. Numbers entered into the phonebook on one phone are immediately available on all handsets, and there is a wide choice of desktop and screensaver pictures. All in all avery good purchase 31 December 2012
