Is it possible to get a quad cordless phone set that will let you receive text messages as "text messages" and not voice text?.

 

I have had no luck at all trying to find a BT phone that will provide this service.

Are you sure that this phone  : BT Synergy 6500 Quad Cordless Phone With Answer Machine will show text messages as they would on a mobile phone?  I am just checking before I order one.

 

Thank you for the reply.

 

Regards

 

Graham.

Hi again Graham, 

 

According to the instructions -  provided you have caller display activated it will show them. below taken from previous link I gave you.

 

  • Text messaging with 50 text memory

The BT Synergy 6500 can send and receive text messages from participating mobile networks and compatible landline telephones in the UK.

You must subscribe to your Network Provider's Caller Display service so that you can use text messaging and you must not withhold your telephone number. A quarterly fee may be payable, please contact your network provider for more details.

 

If you do not have caller display let us know  we can advise you if your phone calls & line are with BT.

Hi,

I bought a set of 5 BT cordless to replace Panasonic quad system that was 13 years old.  Luckily they were bought locally and  it was possible to get my money back.  I then got panasonic set on line and am very pleased.  First attempt, with BT, proved to be a false economy!

I am getting deafer with age and can only use handsfree and the BT phone was rubbish for that!  I have a cheap mobile, with pay as you go, to use in emergencies or on hospital or other medical trips - I am also pretty well house bound so depend on phone line!

 

I have now discovered that I can get text messages and have managed to work out how to send back.  Only no idea of costs so have spent an hour + going around in circles on the BT site trying to find out...and each new tab opened wants me to complete a customer satisfaction survey!!

 

Now I have verified being part of this community I need to find the right thread to pose my question!

 

Hope your new phones are ok!
