  1. I took our big brand (name omitted in case of legal implications) DECT cordless phones over with us and changed out the cord to an RJ12 plug (I think) by buying a cable from Dick Smith and using a travel plug for the charger and it works no problem. Now I want to get an Aussie 2 pin transformer so contacted big brand's .com.au product support team with the following query: I brought the above phone over from the UK and am using it with no problems after changing the line cord but wondered if it was possible to buy Australian transformers rather than using the UK ones with an adapter plug. Big Brand reply was: Thank you for taking the time to contact big brand with your enquiry. Due to legal restriction on Communications standards, You are not able to use phones from one country in another. Big brand Australia is not able to offer support for a Phone sold in another country. They are illegal in Australia Is this a blatant rip off attempt to make me buy a new phone as I can almost guarantee that there is no difference between the phone sold here and the one I bought in the UK other than the jack cable and 2 pin transformer. What sort of trouble could I be in for continuing to use my UK spec phone?

    Hi can anyone with any telecoms experience help? we have brought over with us a 1950 bakerlite phone, which had been adapted for modern usage. it has a uk bt style phone plug on it. is it a easy job to change plug, or do i need to get a phone engineer to do it, or are there any adapters available?
