Telephones have normally been something I have paid little attention to, but recently I have been looking online for a new cordless phone when the process became an obsession.

I have used the web for a few years now and am quite proficient, though I often become exasperated with its apparent foibles. By the time I had received my product I was so happy with the process that I phoned and thanked the customer services at Telephones Online. They gratefully accepted my thanks and asked that I write a brief article on my experience :

I started out by doing what I guess anyone would do faced with buying something online, first I entered by main keyword :”cheap cordless phone” on the three main search engines: Yahoo, Live and Google and wrote down the top ten results in terms of how much I liked the site and how what sort of range of cordless phones they had.

I then looked at the price comparison websites like Kelkoo, and Pricerunner to see if any of them had any better offers. Now there is one thing about price comparison sites I only found about recently, they only compare products of people who pay them to compare, if you see what I mean. Anyway, having seen a few site names come up repeatedly in my lists of potential online vendors I decided upon this site ( telephonesonline ) . To tell the truth it may have just been the nice colour scheme though it may have been the low prices and great range of phones available..

I had been after a BT telephone as I had always used these since the days of the Post Office So, using the sorting options ( cheapest first ) I can across a nice cordless phone called a BT Synergy 4100, it came in as under £20 and had enough features to suit me. I mean I only really want to chat on my phone. I don’t actually understand why anyone needs all those mobile phone type functions on a home phone, it’s not like you carry it around with you everywhere,

Anyway, in the end, as I said, I managed to choose both vendor and phone and then before I knew it I was tracking the delivery online until there was a knock at the door and, the phone arrived, looking quite like the one I had looked at on the website itself.

All in all a quite enjoyable online shopping experience and one that I will repeat shortly as I look for a cordless drill online.
