Home Phones

We have a TELSTRA desktop phone Model TSH-D. Can we get an extension phone to suit for use at the other end of the house. If so, please advise the model.

Hi @Marchan 

According to the instructions manual you can add the same phone that you already have at the other end of the house through DECT

I don't work for Telstra, Never have, I am just a Telstra customer like you.
So the advice I give is my own, In my own time, Guided by my own experience/knowledge.
Which I am always happy to be corrected on.

Re: Home Phones

The manual states on page 14:

“You can register multiple TSH-D phones or compatible cordless phones”.  (Emphasis added)

 

So the second phone can be a compatible phone, but it does not list compatible models, so to be safe it’s probably best to obtain a second TSH-D.

- that way one could fully utilise the inbuilt Intercom, transferring calls and conference calls functionality.

Re: Home Phones

Hello everyone - the TSH-D supports DECT CATiq 2.0 for full integration with the CATiq 2.0 Base Station inside the Telstra Smart Modem. One of the disadvantages of the TSH-D is that it needs 240 volt power adapter to operate despite its user manual mistakenly referring to non existent internal batteries.

 

If you don't wish to have a Desktop phone as the second extension and prefer mobility, the Telstra Smart Handset Cordless (TSH-C) phone also supports CATiq 2.0 and can be used with full functionality as described above. Its predecessor, the Telstra T-Voice 503 or other vendor's CATiq 2.0 DECT handset can also be used. 

 

A  DECT-GAP handset will also pair to the Telstra modem's base station as CATiq 2.0 is backwards compatible to DECT-GAP but it will be limited to have very basic answer and make calls functionality. CATiq 2.0 is specially developed for Carrier Gateways - it does away with the need for external cordless base station.
