BT4500 trio

  (Rating Hidden)

I have had the phone for 16 months but has become unusable after 16 months viz 4 months out of warranty. Good phone but reliability now in question. Supplier, Currys, or BT didn't want to know. Failure of main base unit.

Don't buy the BT 4500 trio package

  (Rating Hidden)

I've had this package for a year and two days. We have had problems with the Phonebook function for months - entries just vanish and I've had to re-enter them many times. But occasionally 'deleted' Phonebook numbers magically appear again. In the last...

Does what it says on the tin - but not particularly well

  (Rating Hidden)

On the plus side. It arrived. It was easy to set up. It works and all three handset talk to each other.On the negative side, the speaker is distorted, the ring-tones are horrible. It has a 'headset socket' - which was the main reason I bought it as I...

BT 4500 triple

Sorry, I need to make an amendment to my review, as I was hasty in my initial assessments. I haven't sent the phone back. Although initially using the Sky microfilter seemed to stop me hearing a dial tone or the other person, it now seems to work...

We purchased a trio package from the BT Shop and found poor sound quality in two of the handsets - an intermittent warbling sound. We reported the fault and can get a refund. But now need to get a replacement set. I see the BT4500 is a highly regarded...

Good straightforward phone


Not the most trendy looking phone but great for those who wish to operate one without the aid of a magnifying glass to see the controls and buttons. Good instructions together with an easy intuitive way of moving through the features on the various...
