Try Before You Buy centres
Our Try Before You Buy centres are a national network of places where you can try out our phone equipment to make sure what you want is suitable for your needs.
Helping you make the right choice
We know how disappointing it is to buy something from a shop only to get it home and find that it doesn't work in the way you wanted. By working in partnership with third-party Try Before You Buy centres, we have over 200 locations where you can see, handle and try out our equipment without being pressurised by sales people.
Try Before You Buy centres are set up in disabled living centres or within organisations helping people with particular impairments, so you also get the expertise of professionals working in these centres.
David Harris of deafPLUS Bath, a charity which benefits and promotes the welfare of Deaf and hard of hearing people said:
"It is vital that people with disabilities are able to communicate effortlessly with friends and relatives and we are delighted to support this BT initiative which gives people with disabilities the chance to try before they buy."
"Keeping us up to date with new innovations also means that we are better able to advise our clients so that they can lead more independent lives."
New centres are regularly joining the network all the time.
