richard, oxford could design it myself

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent design - good range - super sound quality - easy to use transfer function: the bad points below are more design want to haves and niggles
Bad points:
Still not putting in the features that would make it a world beater - being able to ring all or specific extensions with the caller on hold - Excelent: but if you could put all the stations on speaker and shout 'Jacquie - pick up the phone' rather than ringing them all and then getting the wrong person and telling them not to answer next time and ringing them all again. (obviously if people are in fixed locations this is not a problem but in a big site where people can move from room to room this is a problem. )

There should be a way to listen to the exchange(aka central office) dial tone to see if you have message waiting - using the answering machine at the exchange means that callers can record messages when the line is busy - but with this phone you have to enter the number then press the green go button. If you press the green before putting in a number you get a menu.

FINALLY: make a base station that will take two telephone lines: then the system will attack the small PBX and win. This could then be used either for separate office/home numbers or for two lines on the same number.
