Thread: Best (not to expensive) home phone

  1. #1

    Default Best (not to expensive) home phone

    Hi guys, Please recommend a phone for home. Got one from Telkom shop, and it was second from top, but quality is like a toy phone. Luckily (if you return within seven days) they refunded me. Should I get one from Makro or Dionwired, and model please. PS. Also found out they charge you for caller Id ???!!!

    Don't know if Telkom still supply them but I've had the DECT DDA100 twin packs for 4 years now. They see heavy use and are still going strong, now on their third set of batteries (last replaced a month ago so a pack is good for about 2 years).

    I thought CID was included in all the call plans these days?

Durand did not pursue food canning, but, in 1812, sold his patent to two Englishmen, Bryan Donkin and John Hall, who refined the process and product, and set up the world's first commercial canning factory on Southwark Park Road, London. By 1813 they were producing their first tin canned goods for the Royal Navy.
    I'm guessing two tin cans and a length of string were in use sooner

    Got the VTech dda200BT from Telkom a while ago, and am impressed.
    Contrary to the usual cheap stuff available, this is a solid device.

    I can leave my S6 in my home office, and can still answer my cell either in the bedroom, or lounge.

    Guess it's the successor to the DDA100 (looks identical) but with the added benefit of bluetooth.

    Something tells me the OP's not going to be happy with the price though.

    Yes got the Vtech one that went for R439 also Bluetooth, but it was like talking over walkie/talkie; the quality was that bad, and the display is toy-like. Thought weird they still sell quality like this in this day and age. I guess I'll stick to name brand like Panasonic or Bell from makro. The for info.

    Had Bell units from Makro before the DDA100s and they sucked in comparison.
