Re: Home Hub 2.0 - which phones will actually work with it......

That says it all Keith   I just tried my old Cable and Wireless base plugged in to hub and had noise problems as did the op

 

So back to CW base with 3 hands registered to it and the 4 th handset registered to the hub works perfectly with all CW functions answering etc, and the choice of hub phone or 5 prefix for landline from hub

Thanks - I think that helps - the BT guy that phoned said look for x, y, z compatibility - so I assumed it would have to be a VOIP phone - which seem to cost a bit....

Voip phones are expensive and are primarily aimed at business users who have an existing Ethernet structure, but do not want to have to install additional telephone wiring. They can use the same ports as their computers.

Each phone will retain its identity wherever it is plugged in. It means that users can personalise their phone, and it will work anywhere in their organisation, even internationally, for a global company like BT.
Each phone has its own unique net address.

Now you can see why they are expensive !

OooSmiley Surprised, I stand correctedSmiley Happy

When I took out BTBB, BBTalk and BTV I asked the BT sales rep many questions.

I asked what type of phone could be registered to a home hubs base station.
I was told that only BT Hub phones can be registered to the hub, so whilst on the phone, I also ordered a BT Hub phone, luckilly foc.

It was confirmed that if by chance, I was in the process of registering my hub phone and someone else was also registering a DECT phone to their base station, at the exact same time, that there was no way theirs could accidently connect to my hub, as it wouldn't be a hub phone.

So I now assume that this could happen, if the wireless associastion button was pressed in error and my neighbour was messing with registration button on their DECT phone .....

Thanks to Sobryma for posting, plus thanks to Hamish and Keith for giving the correct answers.

They would need the system PIN, but most people leave it at the default, often "0000". Its unlikely to ever happen !
