Nbn home phone

Just wondering whether anyone could recommend a cordless phone with an answering machine that I can pair with a Telstra Gateway Pro Modem. Having to plug our exisiting phone into the modem is very inconvenient because of its location. I have tried to do some research however I can’t seem to find a phone with an answering machine. Thanks

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Why do you need an answering machine? Message banks is now generally included..

I know I am old school but I would rather come home and see a light flashing and just press a button to hear messages rather than dial message bank to see if there are any messages

Message Notification to Mobile Service

You can also receive a free SMS on your Telstra mobile when a message is left on your home phone. You can then retrieve this message using your Telstra mobile or home phone.

Most of the phones have indicator for the message in the message bank, and usually it is one press shortcut to dial in the message bank...
