Q & As

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by It really sounds like a telephone! We were looking for a telephone for our new home office and wanted something rather stylish. We both saw this online and agreed immediately that it was perfect! We have not been disappointed. We have it in bright red and it is not only a good-looking product but is also great to use. Love it! 24 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Similar fault to many other reviews This is such a sweet phone - just a shame it doesn't do a good job. Like others on here, it just goes dead when you are using it. The caller can hear us but we cannot hear them. I assumed it was a wiring fault with our phone but have now realised it is probably something more as so many seem to suffer from the same fault. Now we are having to go 30 miles to return it (if I can find the receipt) with very little confidence that the next one will be any better. Hope John Lewis actually read these reviews and do something about it 24 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nice looking phone but I am having the same problems described in other reviews. A terrible buzzing starts 5 minutes or so into a call and it is impossible to hear the other person. Sadly the phone needs to be returned. 15 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Proper phone Very pleased with this. Fed up of echoing wireless handsets, now I have good sound quality. It's comfortable to hold and use. It looks great (I chose one of the less lary and more Scandi-cool colour options). And buttons instead of dial holes is quick and gives you modern options like redial. 24 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great looking phone, shame it doesn't work! I am currently on my 4th phone. Works great initially but then the problems start to occur. Phones stops ringing, or I can't hear people when they ring. At the beginning I thought it was my telephone service provider. I tested all the phones at friends houses, to realise that it wasn't. It is very frustrating because the phone looks wonderful. I think I will need to return for a final refund. John Lewis please look into this! 03 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing Has an intermittent fault, sometimes it cuts out in the middle of a conversation and just appears to be dead, but the next day it seems OK again, then stops working mid-call once more. Now waiting to return it - when we can get to John Lewis. 09 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Use the adaptor! When I first plugged in the phone, it was crackly and slowed the broadband right down. Read back through the reviews here and noticed they mentioned a hidden adaptor. Found this adaptor in the recycling with all the packaging! And the reviews were right, with the adaptor the phone works fine, no crackling and broadband back to normal. Phone looks great and really pleased with it, so glad it works well. 30 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible If I could give it no stars I would. I had to return the first one as it worked for only a few minutes before the caller was no longer abel to hear me speaking. The second one doesn't even have a dial tone. Utterly useless phone. Shame because it looks great. 12 October 2014
