The problem with cordless phones is that their errr cordless …. which means that if your some fool who puts down the phone and then can’t find it again (who’d be that stupid) then your pretty much fooked.
So having obviously not been that daft off I toddled to argos to get a replacement phone. As part of the installation instructions comes a very helpful bright red card written on it is kind instruction that if i can’t get my new phone to work then i should ring their helpful technical support people …. hmmmmmm.
