Having actually gone out and bought one of these, I can confirm that the base station is not wall-mountable, but the charger is. Now I'm off to take it back to Argos.

If your phone is digital and plugs into a three pin socket (as well as a phone line) it needs electricity to work. If you have a phone that only plugs into the telephone line, then it doesn't need electricity to work.

In case of emergency I have a basic phone-line-only phone plugged into the phone socket. It doesn't rely on electricity to work so will work during a power failure.

I would think it was your type of phone. The telephone power is on a separate power line than your mains electric and will not effect your incoming / outgoing calls if your mains fails. When the phones are fully charged (takes about 5 hours when battery is allowed to go flat or first time charge) they last approximately 7 days when left out of the charging units, so I do not see any problem. I have turned my mains off, but there is still a dialling tone on the phones

No, this is not possible. Also note this phone does not even have a speakerphone so you have to hold it to your ear all the time.

PANASONIC, PLEASE NOTE: HANDSFREE IS A VERY BASIC FEATURE and should be a feature on all phones.
