Hello everyone, first post ever.
I’m in the process of buying a Beocom 2 and I might have found one that suits my budget and has the color i’m looking for.
The seller sent me this pictures.
If i’m correct, it’s missing a way to connect it to a phone cable, right ?
Do I simply need to get a power supply with a phone cable like this one ?
Or do I need something more elaborated ?
Thank you very much for your help.

That’s just the handset and charger so you’ll need to add a PSTN in order to connect to the phone line.
Have a read of this FAQ to work out which one to get: https://beoworld.org/faq_view.asp?id=74

Thank you for this quick answer.
So a power supply with a phone line would not work ?May 31, 2022 at 4:51 pm #5529

If you mean an original Beocom 2 PSTN charging base, then I cannot be sure. As stated in the FAQ, Beocom 2s were often updated with new SW to enable them to work with other B&O phones (eg BC6000) and share a PSTN. If the Beocom 2 that you are buying has had the SW update, then I am not sure if it will work with the original PSTN/charging base. Some of the Beocom 2s original PSTN charging bases simply had the phone line cut off once the phone itself had the SW upgraded.May 31, 2022 at 5:15 pm #5530
A further thought: If your internet modem/router has built in DECT, then you may be able to connect the Beocom straight to it without purchasing a PSTN. I have used Beocom 6000s like this in the past – there will be reduced functionality but calls in/out should work fine.May 31, 2022 at 5:19 pm #5531
This is very interesting !
My box indeed have a built in DECT apparently.
I would have to buy the phone without being able to test it though. Buy it my be worth it in the end.May 31, 2022 at 7:13 pm #5534Keith SaundersAdministrator

To build on Guy’s comments, the following may help you..
BeoCom 2 Basic and BeoCom 2 System have the same hardware and look the same.
Only the software is different.
BeoCom 2 Basic = software version 1.3
BeoCom 2 System = software version 2.2
A software readout on the display is made by pressing following keys on the BeoCom 2 keyboard:
9#9#9 then INT then OK
BeoCom 2 MK II is different from BeoCom 2 Basic and BeoCom 2 System as it has a smaller contact plate
on the plug for base/charger.

a quick update : i bought the phone without testing it.
It’s a 2013, MK2 device
I managed to link it with my router (freebox delta / France), so no base needed !
Thank you very very much for the help !
I was very surprised to be able to change the volume of my beomaster without any pairing procedure.
Only complain i might have is that the volume could be a bit higher.
Since i’ve never had one before, can’t tell if this is normal, but not a big deal anyway, the price i got was great.June 3, 2022 at 10:18 am #5602
Great news – thanks for letting us know that the DECT connection worked. I don’t think many people are aware that connection can be so simple!
I can’t help with the volume issue, but perhaps there are other BeoCom owners who can advise.June 29, 2023 at 10:55 am #21778dinyavinBRONZE Member
Dear Keith, may I ask you a stupid question: what is the difference (in functionality?) between BeoCom 2 Basic and BeoCom 2 System?June 30, 2023 at 7:49 am #21790Valve1GOLD Member
This is very interesting.
How did you connect the Beocom with the DECT ?June 30, 2023 at 8:24 am #21791

You may not get a response from jesuisrelou because the discussion about DECT is over a year old.
But from memory, when I connected my BC6000 to a DECT router/modem I simply used the handset’s ‘Register’ menu to search for the DECT base, and it found and connected with ease. Depending on the modem/router, you may need to log in to its setup menu to enable the DECT functionality and make it ‘discoverable’.June 30, 2023 at 9:44 am #21792Valve1GOLD Member

(Note: that’s assuming you are not in the USA, which never received the DECT version.)
