Phone features to help you

  • Buttons

    • Amplify button

      Some phones have an amplify button to increase the volume of your calls — and the volume of your own voice.

    • 1471 and 1571 buttons

      Pre-programmed keys that make it easy to listen to your BT Answer 1571 messages – and find out the number of the last person who called you with 1471.

    • Large buttons

      A number of our phones have large clear buttons on the keypad so the numbers are easily identifiable.

    • Memory buttons

      Memory buttons store the numbers you call most often and let you ring them by pressing just one or two buttons.

    • Emergency button

      This allows you to press a button on the phone to call for help in the event of an emergency.

    • Last number redial

      Most phones have a redial button, which lets you press just one button to try calling engaged numbers again.

    • Raised dot on '5' button

      Most phones include a raised dot on the '5' button so you can easily find the centre of the telephone keypad by touch alone.

    • Speed dial

      Call some of your favourite numbers by pressing down one button.

    • Keypad lock

      If you accidentally make unwanted phone calls – or care for someone who does this – it can mean an expensive phone bill. The keypad lock lets you temporarily lock the phone to stop calls being made.

    • Contrasting keypad

      Some phones have contrasting keypads that make the buttons stand out from the phone.

  • Ringtones, alerts and volume

    • Ringing tone and volume control

      You can choose how loud your phone ring is – and many phones offer at least three different ring tones, so you can choose the one you can hear the best.

    • Audible alert

      Some answer machines rely on a flashing light when there is a message waiting. The audible alert feature offers a beep instead of a flashing light.

    • Outgoing speech amplification

      If you have a quiet voice, amplification will increase the volume of your voice so the person you are calling can hear you better.

    • New message indicator

      A new message indicator is a small light that flashes if you have a new phone message.

    • Call indicator light

      Some phones have a built-in light that flashes when the phone rings. This may be helpful if you have difficulty hearing the phone ring.

    • Different ringtones

      If you feel anxious about speaking to people you don't know, using different ringtones can help. You can choose different ringtones for people you know, so the phone will ring in a different way each time they call, so you know who it is straight away.

  • Display text and messages

    • Text messaging

      You might find it easier to use your phone to type and send text messages to people who are also using phones that receive text messages.

    • Backlit display

      A backlit display makes it easier to read the screen on the phone.

    • Zoom text

      Enlarges the telephone number as it is being dialled.

    • 2-way record

      If you find it difficult to hear everything that is being said on the phone, some answer machines let you record your conversation. This means you can play the recording back afterwards to make sure you did not miss anything important.

    • Answer machine

      An answer machine gives you the option of listening to messages and calling people back at your convenience. You can use a built in answering machine or a network based answering service such as BT Answer 1571 or BT Call Minder to take messages for you.

      For charges, see bt.com/callingfeatures

    • Pre-recorded message

      If your speech is sometimes difficult to understand you can use a pre-recorded message when people call you.

    • Memo feature

      If you have learning or reading difficulties like dyslexia the memo feature lets you record notes for yourself or other people.

    • Caller Display

      Caller Display lets you see the number of the person who is calling, so you can choose whether to answer.

    • Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)

      Many phones have a small LCD screen that shows numbers you have dialled and information such as details of who has called if you have the Caller Display service.

  • Handsets and add on devices

    • Easy grip handset

      Some phone handsets have been designed to make them easy to pick up and hold, which makes calling less of a problem.

    • Headsets

      A phone headset may be useful to reduce background noise.

    • Hands free

      Hands free means that instead of listening through the earpiece of the phone you will hear the person you are speaking to through a loudspeaker on the phone. This can be helpful if you need to write or take Braille notes when you're on the phone.

    • On-hook dialling

      On-hook dialling lets you dial a number without having to lift the handset.

    • Wall mounting

      The option of putting the phone on the wall at eye level so it's easier to use.

    • Text relay

      Text relay helps you stay in touch with friends and family, and call businesses over the phone, connecting you using a textphone with people using a telephone or another textphone.

    • Cordless

      If you have problems moving around the home, cordless phones can be useful as you can keep them with you.

  • Other features

    • Inductive couplers

      If you use a hearing aid, an Inductive coupler can reduce background noise to help you hear better on the phone.

    • Voice prompts

      If you find it difficult to read printed instructions, some of our phones have voice prompts to help you set up and use your phone.

    • Call Screening

      Call Screening sends your calls to your answer machine, so you can hear who is calling and decide whether to pick up the phone to speak to them.

    • Pre-dial

      If you worry about dialling the wrong number, pre-dial lets you check the phone number you want to ring before your phone dials the number.
