Need to buy a nbn compatible new corded Plus 1 cordless phone combo

Answered

Have just got NBN through Telstra and need to buy a corded phone (which has "proper" press dial button numbers ) plus 1 or possibly 2 cordless handsets to use around house and outside. Looked online and liked the Uniden Premium DECT 2-in-1 phone system for around $70 which seems to fit the bill.  Worried about the compatibility so need some advice please. 

There is only one phone in plug on the new Telstra modem.

That model will work fine. Just plug the Corded Handset/Base Station into the Green Phone port of the modem. The cordless handset pairs itself to the Corded Handset/Base Station.

 

This is the setup that my mother-in-law uses.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
