English telephones in France


Can anyone tell me whether our English phone will work here. It has never seemed to though it was in perfect condition when we arrived? Do I need to buy a French one?

We have a UK phone base unit with two additional wireless handsets and they work fine. Only thing I needed was an adaptor from the French 'T' shaped plug to a UK telephone jack. The site I purchased from is http://www.multitel.co.uk

Should work once you've sorted the connector out. Have you tried using it at a neighbour's house ?

Five years here and still using a UK phone. Seems OK then to me. Depends on the connections you have but there are adapters and the standard UK connectors fit a Livebox and the like anyway.
