Product information

The BT Diverse 7460 Plus digital telephone and answering machine combines great value and a sleek, black design.

You can store 200 names and numbers on the internal memory, and there’s the convenience of a 10 last number redial facility. It features 720 minutes of talk time, 120 hours standby, and SMS text messaging.

Q & As

BT Diverse 7460 Plus Digital Telephone and Answering Machine, Single DECT 5 5 2 2
First Class replacement This was bought to replace a telephone and answering machine that I had for many years and was sorry when it stopped working. I looked at quite a number of telephones and read many reviews before deciding on this particular phone. I can honestly say that I am well satisfied with my choice. You can store all of your numbers in both the handset and the stand itself and make calls from both. It is so very versatile. The choice of ringtones is good and can be as loud as you require. So glad I decided on this particular one. 31 December 2013
Really good stylish product from BT I bought this product last week to replace an answering machine which had served us well for years but had started to show its age. I visited the store at John Lewis with an open mind but eventually settled on this product as it had all the features I want in a phone. The display on both the handset and base unit are clear and the buttons are a great size especially if your eyesight isn't all it used to be! Also purchased an extra handset for bedroom use which is equally good. The phone comes with basic instructions but didn't give me enough information to set up the ' phone book' as I wanted to copy all my mobile phone numbers into it as well. A great feature is the slot on the side for mobile SIM cards to enable you to do this. Searching the Internet enabled me to access the full booklet to set up the phone together with troubleshooting information. I would recommend this phone. 30 January 2013
