[BCAB] Update on Cordless phones with talking features

Hi Pele

Yes, this is true.  So if I am upstairs in my room, I can answer a call
because my phone is not one of the Powertel handsets, and means Martin can
pick it up elsewhere in the house.  But if I answer the Powertel somewhere,
he can't pick up another Powertel which is a bit annoying in that sense.

The other reason we have an ordinary desk phone connected to the line is in
the event of a power-cut which has been known.  In that situation, it
renders any mains dependent phones useless.

Kind Regards,

Jackie Brown

Hi adrian

Peter and I opted for the Panasonic phone because it allows two people to
have a conversation with someone. I understand the Powertel cannot do this.
