The Alcatel F890 Cordless phone is a full-featured Cordless DECT phone with a Premium Answerphone and Call Block Facility.  The easy-to-use 50-minute integrated answering machine allows selective playback of messages through the display so you can select only the messages you want to hear.  With a choice of two answering modes, you can choose to answer and record a message or answer the call only.  You can also choose to play either a pre-recorded message or set your own personalised message.  There are direct access keys to the answerphone on the base, with an always visible, large message counter.

The call block function allows you to avoid nuisance calls by only allowing chosen numbers to make your phone ring. There are several different modes available, including one which invites callers to enter a code to make the phone ring.  Callers who can’t enter the code are rejected or allowed to leave a message on the answering machine (dependant on your settings). Please note that you will need to have an active “caller display” service from your phone line provider to use the call block function.

The large white backlit graphic display has six lines with adjustable contrast for perfect readability. The earpiece volume can be adjusted to five different levels.  There is a choice of ten handset ringtones including five classical and five polyphonic ringtones.  The VIP function allows you to identify your favourite callers with their own unique ringtone.  The High-Quality Hands-Free function allows you to share your conversations more easily, with volume control adjustable to five level.

Because the Alcatel F890 is a cordless DECT phone, you have freedom to take the handset away from the base.  You might want to recline in a comfy chair without having to worry about stretching any wires, or to take your call with you as you move around your home.  You can also add up to 3 additional handsets.  There are various bundles available that include additional handsets.
