Re: BT advanced digital phone with Alexa

Go to solution

Well I have received my new BT Advanced with Alexa handset with three basic handsets as extras, don't seem too bad, when I get switched. looks like you cant replace batteries when they go, but of course I could be wrong.

I am going to have to find some way of attaching the base to side table or it will be going everywhere.

What I am going to miss.

Calling 999 when power goes/Broadband down

Being able to contact BT when broadband goes down

I have extended ringers as I am a bi deaf . if I buy the adapter for HUB can I still get these working

Now see why they are promoting the ee link so you can maintain telephone service.

Decided all in all not very happy about change.

@VeteranISPUser  It works. It doesn't clash with Alexa because the Alexa bit relies on the contacts stored within the Alexa app on a mobile phone and doesn't display them on the handset, strictly voice control only.

I had to edit the vcf file from Google contacts to replace + with 00

Samsung contacts has a vcf export but half my contacts didn't show after importing.

Another note. There seem to be two very different versions of the essential phone. One has x42 firmware and the other has v3. The x42 display is only lit from the top. The v3 is evenly lit. The v3 is much much faster at syncing the phonebook. The x42 has a better speakerphone. Battery is much poorer on the v3.
