    Thumbs up PANASONIC KX-TGJ422EB Cordless Phone...

    Just got these for two new landline handsets: https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/phones...pid=display~RR

    Nice and compact, lightweight, easy to use, excellent range, and with a great set of features, including an effective and easy to use nuisance call blocking, plus talking caller ID, which to my easily amused mind is huge fun storing folk as 'Dickhead', 'Wanker', or whatever, and which is rather funny when being read out as 'Dickhead Calling', etc!

    Anyway, a highly recommended pair of handsets for anyone like me who insists on having a working landline, not just a mobile phone!

    Marco.

    Yeah, mate, similar thing

    I like the talking caller ID function on the Panys though, as you can hear who's calling from another room and therefore decide if you want to speak to them or not, without having to go to the phone!

    Does anyone call you on it?!

    Weve recently upgraded to fibre broadband and so lost our landline as wed have had to pay extra to keep it. I wasnt sure about this but then I realised the only people who ever call us on it are my friend Tim and an older chap I sell hi-fi for (both of whom also have my mobile number) plus hundreds of bloody scammers!

    Given that the scammers are all recorded messages now, so you cant even have a bit of fun with them, we decided the landline was no great loss.

    Same here. 100mbs is now costing us about the same as 7mbs plus a phone line.
