Hi - does anyone know where I can get a DECT Cordless Telephone from?

You can buy DECT phones from any shop or department store that sell normal phones. Best Denki, NTUC, Courts, most departmental stores that sell phone equipment. They only cost around $80 up.

DECT cordless phones

Most supermarkets have it.
But in my experience with the Dect phone that i received with my Starhub package is that the battery life is pathetic. Most of the time like say over an hour or so of a call, the battery would die down. This could be due to the quality of the rechargeable battery as well. But in general i guess Dect phones are power hungry because of their powerful antenna.

I just got a Philips DECT phone with handsfree headset option and speakerphone. It seems to work really well so far. The set came with 2 phones.
