Can anyone recommend a digital phone set, preferably that comes with at least 2 handsets and that has an answerphone.

I've got a BT one at the mo and it's never been that good. No-one I know thats actually got a digital one is that happy with what they've got either so I thought i'd ask you lot.

Sorry Delgirl. We're not too happy withours either! It's crackly & crappy and the reception is pretty poor. Some days we think we'd be better off with 2 tin cans and a bit of string.

We have Onetel with four handsets. It has speakerphone, intercom and answering machine(although we use the answering service on our line).

It works fine, but you have to be diligent about replacing the handsets on their cradles as the battery life isn't long.

We have a Panasonic set which is fab, DG, I'll try and find you a link.

It's this one - OMG, just looked a bit further and it's about £40 cheaper here , and I thought the first one was cheap - we paid about £100 for a twin pack without a TAM. They have extra handsets too for £39.99 .

It is relatively expensive but extremely good and the memory holds 200 numbers. (NB We don't have a TAM so I can't vouch for that, we did have a BT Synergy one before and that was fairly poor.)

we have a set of binatone ones (MD2600) and they're excellent.

Our BT one is pretty crap, frankly. People say we go very quiet at times! I've heard Panasonic ones are good, but expensive. I think we'll go for one of those next time.

I think the bt ones are so Janh, i'm going to trust your judgement and go for the panasonic. That 1 that is £70 is ex display apparently though I can't see how if they're online sales!!! Anyway, looked at the normal list and they're all reduced. Gonna phone up for it though. Thanks for that
