Mobile phone SIM card reader/writer(1)
The BT Paragon has a built-in SIM card reader/writer so there's no need to re-enter all your contacts into your new phone. Just insert your mobile's SIM card into the BT Paragon and copy all the numbers from there. It's also a great way to keep a backup of the numbers stored on your mobile phone.
Answering machine with up to 32 minutes digital recording time
The answering machine has two pre-recorded male and female outgoing messages (answer & record and answer only option) or you can record your own. You can playback messages via the loudspeaker or privately through the handset and you can screen calls. There is a memo feature so you can leave messages for other handset users and you can access your answering machine remotely and listen to your messages when you are away from home.
Text messaging with message storage space(2)
Send and receive text messages from your BT Paragon phone. A flashing light on the base, a message on the display and an audible alert indicate that new text messages have been received.
200 Name and number directory
Your BT Paragon phone can store up to 200 of your most frequently used names and numbers to make dialling quick and easy. If you subscribe to a Caller Display service you can also assign group ringtones when you store directory entries - the assigned ringtone will then play when someone from a particular group calls you.
Caller Display with 50 number calls list(3)
See who is calling you before you answer the phone. The calls list holds details of your last 50 callers, including the phone number and time and date of the call. If a number matches a stored directory entry, the caller's name is displayed as well as the number.
