Question
Does the number memory allow you to just store contact number to say digit 1
Does the number memory allow you to just store a certain contact number to say digit 1, so you just press 1 and it automatically rings it?

No, this phone os not 1 digit memory dialing. You need to press the 'MEM' key and then the relevant digit to the number you are dialling. The only way to get one touch dialling is if the phone has dedicated one-touch dialling memory keys and this phone does not have this feature. Would suggest that you look at the argos value white corded desk phone to see what I mean.

Thank you for your question regarding the Opticom Big Button Corded Telephone.

After looking into your query, I can confirm that call transfer is not a feature of the phone set itself but it is a feature of the phone line. If you have this service provided via your network provider you will be able to use this.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

On the handset there are 3 buttons on the front, just under the screen. Press the one on the left (with a letter 'C' above it).Then press the large black button (next to the symbol of a phone)on the arrow pointing right which will give you the display "new entry", and just follow the instructions (like programming a mobile phone).

Question
Does it have a light to show when a message has been left?
I appreciate that the phone does not itself have a message facility, but we would want to set it up with 1571. I know some phones have a light which comes on when a message has been left. Does this phone have such a light?
