Can you really mix & match any base station with any DECT handset?
Yes and no.
Do handsets have proprietary features which only work with their own basestations? (eg: transfer between handsets)?
Yes. And that's the 'no' part of my answer above - whilst they may make & take calls, you might well lose additional functionality. Transfer hasn't been a particular problem (in my experience, it's better to use the native asterisk functions for this on DECT phones), but call lists most definitely have been an issue.
Can i buy a good base station and get cheap Costco Dect handsets?
As above, if you weren't worried about all the features, quite probably. But reasonable Gigaset DECT handsets designed for the base aren't exactly expensive - I think the C610H is around the 30GBP mark - substantially less if you're ordering quantity. And I've seen older models for substantially less - I picked up a batch of new - but old model S450s for around 30GBP for 6.
I don't think I've seen DECT units in Costco for much less than 20 GBP.
