Worst phone ever and no useful company support. VTec 17250


Can only hear other party by using the speaker phone function. Normal, and boost function no use. Playback on answer machine function is often so 'garbled' that message cannot be understood. Sent the phone back to the factory and had it returned as 'nothing wrong'. No offer of refund and not fixed. Worst phone ever!

Purchased in January 2019 at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores.

Good little device


Bargain off JB hifi, good pricing
Easy to use, clear instructions
Nothing fancy a good basic hand set
Good coverage from base, even upstairs
Ring tone not loud enough in my loud house
Good value for money
You get what you paid for, no complaints,
Battery lasts well too.

One handset Vtech 15250 Kaput


After 2yrs one handset won't work (keeps peeping). We swapped batteries also did the disconnect procedure. Product support said it's kaput and could purchase another for $29. However, as main base (in office) and second cradle (kitchen) both work using the one handset, I won't bother even if a bit inconvenient moving the one remaining handset from office to kitchen. I found the menu where I can now get 8 calls (instead of 6) before the answering machine kicks in. Other than that one disappointment i.e. one still working, the other kaput, they are compact nice looking units.

Absolute bargain, simple solution


Same as previous reviewer, but looking for a simple phone for our small retail business. Paid $44 at Officeworks - if I knew how good it was I'd pay a lot more. Easy at hand, clear audio, simple setup, small footprint, good battery life. Excellent value.

Sorry Kylie, I've given up with the VTech, no one from the firm has replied to my email and I've packed it away. Can't even get my money back from Australia Post as they say I've used it. Ie put the battery in and tried to set it up. I hope someone else can help you. My only comment ,DONT BUY THE VTECH 15250. ChrisM

Hello Kylie,

Here is a link to an online manual:

Page 70 describes how to change the announcement (OGM). I'm not with the phone now so can't test this process again myself.

Hope this helps. If you get it going ok maybe you can buy a cheap spare phone from Chris M! Ours still works fine.
