A FREEBIE,RESULT : Migration to DV ?

Go to solution

The free DV-Adapter is alive and well, living chez-moi. On the strength of the freebie, I've celebrated by purchasing the cheaper dedicated DV-phone, at a discount, under one of the nominated schemes.

Does the DV-Adapter function through your premises electricity supply ? If anyone liberates your DV-Adapter by stealth, will it work in any premises on the same electricity-phase, with their phone plugged in ?

The DV-Adapter is a DECT device like most non-wired home phones.

OK, the signal goes over the airwaves, not through the wires.

E-DV-HS : Migration to DV ?

Essentials DV-Phone arrived on queue.


5-mins to get it up and running. Data download 20-mins. A well appointed toy for £20. It's going to take a while to punt through all the stuff that'll give me a good bit of hands-on. Dial tone, OK, rings out, OK; that'll do for starters.

I haven't found a route to 'Checking for Updates', if there's one at all ? Anyone !

Essentials DV-Handset. 'Checking for Updates', lives at:-
Menu - Settings - Product Info - Update Software.
Charge it up for 16-hours ? What's wrong with replacing the existing batteries, with a set of a fully charged equivalent ?

I took the DV-Handset out shopping; to see how far the dial-tone would last. Less than 75-metres; I'd put it around 175-feet in the concrete jungle. It certainly didn't work in a shop, a quarter of a mile away.

UPS are readily available at electrical distributors. They're around £80-inc upwards, to silly money; it all depends on the length of a power-outage ? If you want to run a kettle, a toaster, and a washing machine off UPS; they're massive big bucks. Little bitty milliampere fat plugs, run on the cheaper end of the price spectrum.
