I bought this additional handset for my sun room. Dead easy to add to the set. Just press the find button on the main set and it sets time, date, address book etc.
Best buy ever after the base unit. We’ve went from the phone ringing 15 times a day driving us all mad to just once or twice a day from people we actually know. The others are still calling but it’s not ringing and disturbing our day. A must for anyone worrying about their elderly parents being harassed by fraudsters and sales calls.
Works with the other 4 phones prompt service.
Good item arrived in good time only problem is it doesn’t sync with my existing handset not sure how to resolve this.
Purchased this handset to add to my bt8600 twin set to make into a triple (cannot be used on its own as it has no telephone line connection)the quality of this phone and its blocking function by the ‘ call guardian ‘ block up to 100%nuisance calls and is the best ,and i will recommend this telephone to any one who is having problems with this type of call. If they do not give name or number (it needs number recognition) they are blocked and number stored. I then google’who phoned me’ to check it out, if it a spam call its blocked totally. Best telephone system i have bought to date,highly recommended.
This handst was an extra as weed needed 5 handsets and it works along side the others brilliant best landline handsets i’ve had out of 4 sets we never get cold calls and if there a new caller they have to say who they are before you take the call brilliant.
Great service from suppliers worth money paid for bt phone.
Bought bt8600 additional handset. Well packaged and excellent tech support. (i hadn’t removed the paper tab protecting the batteries in the handset) 🙄 working brilliantly now 😁 thank you 👍.
This extra handset linked perfectly with my existing bt8600 dual set, copying all my safe phone numbers without extra input required. I can recommend the bt 8600 system for filtering out those nuisance phone calls. Bought the same system for my elderly mother and we have not had a single unwanted call since.
Bought this for my mum (79), and she had no problem syncing it with the main handset. It was delivered quickly and she is very pleased with it.
Just what we needed and delivered promptly. We had no trouble whatsoever in getting it to hook up to the existing system. In fact it practically did it all by itself. And no troubles at all with reception. You would think that it had been bought as part of the original set.
Bought this rather than brand new. Full functionality with my existing set up.

Just what i needed for upstairs.
Not wholly compatible with our 8500.
The item even though it was used looked brand new. Came with instructions to link to base station.
It works, however i can’t do the things on this handset by my bed that i can on the others as it is a different model but it has stopped the one ring i’d get with the other phone everytime a call was incoming then blocked no it doesn’t ring at all which is a plus just wish it was able to communicate with the other two phones and link in to update the phonebook etc.
Bought as a replacement for 1 of my handsets when it stopped working – arrived promptly – very easy to set up and link to my existing set – works perfectly – i was unsure about buying a ‘used’ handset – but when it arrived it was in perfect condition – literally as good as new — so far i’m very happy with this purchase and would definitely recommend this seller.
