Digital Voice extra phones

Hi

Im having DV installed next Monday and a bit confused! 
I have received one BT Advanced Digital Home Phone-Alexa (Type A).

The SH2 Hub will be in the lounge.

What do I need to do to have extra DV phones in the kitchen and bedroom, as I do with my current cordless phones?

Thanks

Frank

Plug the master base station of your cordless phones into the phone socket on the Smarthub 2 and your present cordless phones will work as they do now.

Follow the instruction with the BT digital phone to connect it to the Smarthub 2.

Sorry gg30340, I don’t understand that.

I want to replace my cordless phones with the BT DV Advanced phones.

One will be in the lounge with the SH2 hub and I want two more, one in the kitchen and one in the bedroom.

how do I do that?

Frank

Hi @frankg4553 

You can buy extra phones from the BT Shop or other on-line retailers. I bought 3 extra HD Phones with Alexa cheap from a well known auction site.

BT Advanced Digital Home Phone with Alexa built-in (101806) | BT Shop

Note, you should have been offered extra phones at a discounted price when you ordered your free one.

I thought you would still want to use your cordless phones. If you don't want to do that you will need to buy two BT Digital phones.

That’s right, I need to buy two more BT digital phones…but can I just plug them in to a normal 3-pin plug socket in the kitchen and bedroom for them to work?

Hi Veteran

I wasn’t offered extras at a discounted price when I upgraded online. I’ll look into that.

Thanks

Yes, but you will need to follow the instructions to connect/ register them to the Smarthub2 so that they can work via the Dect base station built into the Smarthub 2.
