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

Question
Does this indicate the time each call is taking? or does the set have a clock?
Our current old phone shows the time each outgoing call is taking, so that after x minutes we know to end the call to avoid additional call charges.

Hi, thank you for your question.

I have looked into your query and I can advise that you will not need to run a cable upstairs to use the additional handset to the Panasonic KX-TG1712EB Telephone. The base unit will be able to locate the second handset.

Thank you for your question, having looked into your query, I have spoken to Panasonic and they have advised me that you return your handset as it may be faulty. If you purchased it in store, please return to this store with your receipt and the handset packaged as best as you can. If you purchased it over the phone or online please call 0845 640 2020.

Hi,

Sorry for the slight delay in replying. I have spoken to Panasonic, and they advise that it is possible to connect other model handsets to this system and transfer calls between them. You just need to register the handsets to the base, which is explained in the manual.

Hope this helps, thanks for using Argos Q&A
