digital cordless phone advice
with teenagers in the house, I seem to constantly be answering the phone to their friends, so we have decided to get a quad pack of digi cordless phones, however there seem to be so many and not all of the specifications are given. I would like the facility to have different ringtones for each member of the family plus the facility to use the phones as an intercom (to save me shouting above loud music to tell them when their meals are ready!) and just to complicate matters further my husband wears a hearing aid so the phones need to be suitable for him to use too and we need it to have an answerphone as well. Has anybody had any experience with these phones and can recommend one or point me in the right direction for checking out specifications.

We have recently bought a Phillips set with one main answerphone base and two separate extentions. However, the ringing tone is terribly tinny, even on "Very Loud", and it's difficult to hear in rooms without an extension. The hand sets are lightweight and cheap and nasty, and although I have to admit the convenience of being able to carry them around, the small numbers make dialling difficult if it's a number you haven't pre-prgrammed in. I'm not sure whether our system offers different ring tones for different family members although there is a loudspeaker and intercom facility.
