Try Before You Buy

Our Try Before You Buy centres are a national network of places where you can try out our phones and accessories to make sure what you find what's right for you.

Try Before You Buy – helping you make the right choice 

We know how disappointing it is to buy something from a shop only to get it home and find that it doesn't work in the way you wanted. By working with third-party Try Before You Buy centres, we have over 200 locations where you can see, handle and try out our equipment without being pressurised by sales people.

Try Before You Buy centres are set up in disabled living centres or within organisations helping people with particular impairments, so you also get the expertise of professionals working in these centres.

David Harris of deafPLUS Bath, a charity which promotes the welfare of Deaf and hard of hearing people said:

"It is vital that people with disabilities are able to communicate effortlessly with friends and relatives and we are delighted to support this BT initiative which gives people with disabilities the chance to try before they buy."

"Keeping us up to date with new innovations also means that we are better able to advise our clients so that they can lead more independent lives."

New centres are joining the network all the time.
