~12 years ago, my puppy chewed my Beocom 3 cord so it occasionally lost power and stopped working.  12 years later, my puppy is still going strong, but the occasional BeoCom 3 glitch has turned into a frequent failure (no longer acceptable).  I called my local service center (and after they stopped laughing - not really, they were very polite) and they said, "we have no parts for that - it's been discontinued for too long".

Call me old fashioned, but I'm looking for a 2-line *wired* replacement with a very good speaker phone capability.  However, there are none on eBay, and only one listed since December of last year.  

Beocom 5 is wireless, discontinued and seems to have lots of issues... however, if someone said "no, you're mistaken, it works great now" (and could tell me how I can tell a good phone from a bad one), I might venture into the 2nd hand market and give it a try.  

However, I'm also in a bit of a rush -  I can use my cell phone in the interim, but I don't have great coverage in my office so it's not 100% either.

Does any one know where I can source a Beocom 3, or a replacement power/phone cord or have recommendation for a non-B&O desk phone?

I realize we haven't talked phones on this forum for a number of years, and this is a long post about what many consider obsolete technology (land line, oh my!) but maybe some will enjoy the nostalgia Smile

Don’t know if you’re still looking, but I just picked up a BeoCom 3 as part of a ‘box of electronics’ deal. It seems to be in good condition. Being an ISDN phone, does it work in just a POTS line?

Stan, have you considered using a Beoplay A1 as a speakerphone with your mobile? Connects using Bluetooth. You can leave it plugged into a USB charger if you want it always on. The sound quality is GREAT used this way.

Or if you’re adamant about having a wired landline phone, you can use a Beocom 2000 in that way.
