Doesn't Take Long

What is it with these people? Do they read their own instructions? How long is long anyway?

I have just purchased a BT Synergy 3105 cordless telphone system, reduced by £50 from £69.99 to £19.99 because it is ex-display and people have obviously ruined it by looking at it.

Page 3 of the instructions:

You must first set up your phone before you can use it.
This doesn't take long and is easy to do...

Page 7 of the instructions:

Place the handset on the base to charge for at least 16 hours ... After 16 hours, plug one end of the telephone line cord into...

And I haven't even reached the 39 pages of 'Getting to know your phone.' I'll probably have to take it out for dinner and drive it home. I wonder if it'll text on a first date

Where from? I often go into PC World (not looking for phones) vaguely hoping they'll have some decent reduced bargains. No chance though - ex-display, repackaged, slight knock or scratch here and there. Reduced from 99.99 to 94.99 with a "BARGAIN" sticker added just in case you weren't sure.

OK, now I don't want to know as the phones we recently bought are available for much less than we paid. Boo hoo.
