    Amazon.com Product Description

    The KX-TGA270S from Panasonic is an add-on extension handset designed for use with KX-TG2700S, KX-TG2720S, KX-TG2730S, or KX-TG2740S Expandable Cordless Systems. By utilizing the 2.4 GHz frequency band, as well as Frequency Hopping Digital Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology, the KX-TGA270S provides crisp, clear reception even at significant distance from the base.

    An illuminated keypad makes dialing easy in the dark, while a headset jack gives you the option of hands-free operation. Four-way conferencing allows you to talk with multiple people, while a two-way intercom lets you communicate with family and friends near the other phone.

    With call waiting, you won't miss any important calls, while Caller ID (with subscription to telephone company services) means you can avoid those calls you would rather miss. A great way to expand your current Panasonic phone system, the KX-TG2700S also features six selectable ring tones as well as a handset volume control. Panasonic also provides a one-year parts and labor warranty. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars affected all my other phones
    I ordered this phone as an extension for my base unit. I registered it and it worked fine for one day. The next day, all my phones were echoing and the new handset faded in and out and nobody could hear me on the new handset. I had to return it and deregister it, but my phones still haven't returned to the previous normal state. At this point, I don't know what to do.

    5-0 out of 5 stars NiMH Batteries Available for This Model
    Like other reviews, I will complain that the battery life with the standard NiCad battery is not good, and the battery eventually fails prematurely. However, there are NiMh batteries with much better life and excellent performance available. I bought some energizer model no. ER-P511 and they work just great. They are drop-in replacements for the Panasonic handsets.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Features but battery life is pathetic
    It is a great phone with all those features. I alway enjoy the speaker phone on my cordless phone but of late, the battery life has gone down and now I have to keep it on the charger for all the time to make even couple of calls.

    Is there a supliment battery that we can buy??

    ..updated on 06/29/04
    Well just added another battery, you can buy it in Radio Shack or even online Panasonic.Com for $11 and my phone is back to normal. And as someone said correctly, I have been regularly using my phone with booster on. May be that was the reason. But if I lose this battery quickly then I will post it here but other wise I am giving 5 of 5 to this phone. Because battery is very very important thing and with the new batttery working excellent, charging quickly in 2 hrs, I changed my rating from 3 to 5.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Caller ID contrast fails
    I bought a base unit and 3 extra handsets in Nov. 2003 for my home based business. Within a couple of months I had a problem with the caller ID contrast fading out on one handset whenever I tried to get it to display a previous call or on an incoming call. I shipped it back and Panasonic replaced it with a remanufactured one. In May 2004, 6 months after purchase, I had the same problem with another of the original handsets. I sent it back asking them to FIX it, NOT replace it, and to tell me exactly what the problem is, because I am now concerned that their product is unreliable and dont want to find this recurring with the other 2 handsets.

    They replaced it with a remanufactured unit with no explanation of the problem. I called the Texas facility that shipped it to me, and they said they have no way of knowing what the problem was, they just receive and ship out units. I called the customer service number and they claimed it couldnt be a design or quality control defect or all four would have gone by now, and they also pointed out that the rest of the features were still working, both statements which I find to be ridiculous.

    Any company manufacturing a complex product can have a design flaw or QC problem. I dont fault them for that. It's refusing to own up to the problem and making it right that burns me up. In my opinion, Panasonic should have recalled this model and replaced it with one that works, or else refunded customers full purchase price. This was a lot of money for me to invest in telephones, more than I've ever spent. As a result of this experience I will never buy another Panasonic product of any kind, ever again. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars A cool-looking, but mediocre performer
    Synopsis: Motorola really knows how to make an aesthetically pleasing phone with a long-lasting battery life. However, calls are laden with enough static to make me look for another phone. Here's what I've noticed: The Good: * Three ring tones (Soft Beeping, Soft Ringing, Loud Ringing) * Backlit display (Green) * Rubber siding (Adds to the coolness factor) * Red LED light on the top of the handset (Flashes for incoming calls, remains on for the duration of your call) * Four-level volume control * Good voice clarity on all four levels of volume when in the vicinity (i.e., same room) of the base * Great battery life The Bad: * Interference usually occurs when in another room, is intensified near operating appliances (i.e., computer monitor, microwave), and is more than expected on a 2.4 GHz phone * Ring tones have no volume control * Green backlight is dim The Unknown: * Ten Speed Dial Presets - have not tested this * Caller ID - do not have Caller ID service I have been shopping for cordless phones for a few months now. I stumbled upon this phone a few days ago and decided to try it out. It's been about 4 days now and the one thing that stands out about this phone is that it has similar levels of interference as my old Panasonic 900 MHz phone. Needless to say, I am returning it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Basic 2.4GHz Phone
    After a lot of looking and many returned phones, I settled on this Motorola. It has all of the features most people need in a cordless, in a very compact and stylish form factor. It is also about the only normal looking phone on the market which discretely fits into your room, unlike all the wannabe Star Trek communcators out there...

    Pros:
    -Form factor: Small and unobtrusive
    -Good range and very clear reception
    -Effective and easy to use caller ID features
    -Very handy volume buttons on the side of the handset with several settings
    -Great battery life
    -Price

    Cons: (mostly minor annoyances)
    -Display is small and sometimes hard to read (although it is backlit)
    -Message waiting indicator on base (for voicemail) does not work
    -Some interference with my WiFi base station (although only when they are very close)
    -Hard to hold against your ear with your shoulder

    1-0 out of 5 stars no good!
    Purchased last Christmas(2003) ringer is very weak, worked okay for a few months, now every call has static, which I see is not fixed by a new battery by the other reviews. Its cool looking by not good working.

    3-0 out of 5 stars skeptic
    I purchased mine in May '04. So far no problems but the phone is rarely used. I was going upgrade to additional models but I think I will hold out and see how long this one lasts. I was skeptical purchasing a motorola model after working for a cellular company and motorola's answer to all phone problems was one of three things your carrier, physical damage or water damage. Like I said so far no problems, clear sound and battery lasting a good length of time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product
    My phone is at least 1 year old now if not older. It was given to me as a present and a good one too! <br /> <br /> Since I got it I couldn't be happier. It is perfect as a home cordless phone or as an office phone, given that it has a very special mute button and has a place to plug in a headset. It is very durable too. It works great for me, no noise, no static. It is even ok with my DSL and wireless connections.<br /> <br /> I think buying a phone is a very personal thing, everyone has their own priorities, I recommend you giving this phone a try! Especially at the price that it sells for now (when mine was purchased, it was 2 times more expensive if not more). ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The 40-2421 from VTech is a four-line, multi-user expandable phone system designed for the small office or busy home. It consists of a base unit, which supports up to four phone lines, and one cordless handset. As your needs grow, you can add up to 11 model VT 40-2420 handsets, for a total of 12. Each handset/charger stand can be placed anywhere you have a power outlet, eliminating the need for additional phone jacks and complicated wiring procedures. The intercom feature lets you communicate with other handsets, while the call transfer function provides a convenient way to route incoming calls from one handset to another. The conference feature allows you to communicate with multiple outside parties, or conference-in an additional handset.

    The 40-2421 utilizes 2.4 GHz digital spread spectrum technology, which provides clearer reception over larger distances than traditional cordless phones operating on lower bands and transmitting an analog signal. Call-waiting and caller ID compatible, the phone stores up to 50 numbers in memory, while the speed dial feature lets you quickly dial the 20 most frequently used numbers. A headset jack and handset speakerphone offer comfortable hands-free options.

    Handset and ringer volume controls are provided, as are both tone and pulse dialing modes. With the auto pick-up setting turned on, you can answer calls simply by removing the handset from its cradle. A visual voicemail message indicator alerts you when you have messages waiting. (Voicemail, call waiting, and caller ID require subscriptions through your local phone company.) The 40-2421 comes backed by a one-year limited warranty on both parts and labor.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Nice idea, poor implementation
    We've been very happy with our VTech 2431 single-line 2.4MHz
    phone system for the past few years, so now that we have
    three lines this looked like just the right thing.
    Unfortunately this system appears to have been designed by a
    completely different team. The handsets are very large (too
    large to fit into a pocket), the menus are more difficult to
    use, the speed-dial feature is extremely clumsy, and the
    signal quality is very poor, with lots of hissing in the
    background. We've sent this one back and replaced it with a
    two-line VTech 20-2431 system, which is much more like the
    original 2431 and doesn't suffer from the problems of the
    40-2421 series. ... Read more

By utilizing the 2.4 GHz frequency, 89 channels of auto-scan, and frequency hopping digital spread spectrum technology, the KX-TGA271W offers clear, intelligible reception even at a distance. A 50 number speed dial memory makes dialing the most frequently called number a snap, while the caller ID memory provides a record of the 50 most recent incoming calls.

Handset and ringer controls allow you to adjust volume levels to you liking, and six ring tones are provided for you to choose from. A voice mail message indicator lets you know when you have messages (requires subscription to a fee-based service), while a low battery indicator lets your know when to return the handset to its cradle for re-charging.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Cordless Phone
    The people writing bad reviews for all the Panasonic Cordless phones must have a different colored phone. If you would read the details on each of the extension phones, for some reason the White Phone has a different type battery than the silver, violet, or black. It has an NiMH battery that can be charged without running down. The others have a NiCAD battery of which I can't figure out why. It doesn't make since to have one you have to run completely down. You should have full time usage of the cordless phone. I never leaave my phone off the charger for a long time. It's always back in the charger by at least bedtime. I love the phones except for that. I don't know panasonic was thinking about. They should make all the other ones good by supplying a NiMH battery and a new charger.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good, But I Still Want Better
    A nice system overall, but not nearly perfect. We purchased a set of these to replace our burnt out Siemens Gigaset 2402 system. While we were happy to have something that worked (the Siemens system had died a slow death over about a year and ultimately became unusable after a little over two years of use) the features and design of this system leave much to be desired. Numerous minor inconveniences and awkwardnesses make these phones less than they could be--nothing major, and perhaps only noticeable when compared with the excellently designed Siemens phones (really nothing more than the difference between Japanese and German design).

    Two features stand out in comparison with our retired Siemens phones, one negative and one positive. On the positive side, these phones support detection of voice messages on an existing message system, so that it is easy to see from any handset whether there are unplayed messages on either line. On the negative side, the system does not support handset naming. We imagined this would be a minor inconvenience when we bought the phones, but it has proved to be a major drawback: there's simply no way to get the entire family to learn what number goes with what phone. When we had the Siemens system, which supports handset naming, the we had a working intercom system (not to mention convenient transfers of calls); now we're back to shouting. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good buy
    I have had this phone for nearly 2 years and have to say that I am satisfied. The sound quality is very good and the I love being able to page the handset from the base. Great speakerphone but the lack of battery backup bothers me still. A pretty good buy.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great durable phone
    I have had this phone for a good 5 years. I have dropped it countless times and it still works excellent!
    Great phone - Great price.

    4-0 out of 5 stars last longer than other phones
    I have had this phone for about 3 years going on four.. I bought the phone for the range. And at that time that was the highest range now they have 5.3 I believe.. Anyway the phone still works like a charm.. I have another phone in the living room and Panasonic and quiet frankly I am not happy with the phone.. But my Sony takes a licken and keeps on ticking.. The battery doesn't run down as fast as the other phone. And I can leave it off the base for more than a day with out having to charge it up..

    2-0 out of 5 stars A disposable phone for a throwaway world
    This product functioned suitably while it lasted. Unfortunately, it was only about 18 months. I replaced the Nicad battery twice at a cost of almost $20 per pop. And yes, I DID run the battery down as recommended and did not have it constantly on the cradle. The sound quality was relatively good and the ability to page the handset from the base was nice. The speakerphone was also relatively good. A huge complaint-No battery backup. Everytime the power went out, everything-remote access codes, basic settings and OGM had to be reset. I generally love Sony products. Not this one, however. I am still looking for a replacement. The handset is completely dead-not the battery this time. Save your money. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Decent Phone
    I recently bought this phone for a home office environment.I tend to agree with some of the other posters in that the phone could be better.The LCD display is hard to read, and the quality of the speaker phone and the handset audio could be much better as well.

    Most of we consumers only think of AT&T, GE (now marketed with the RCA brand on some phones), Panasonic, as well as other typical consumer brands when it comes time to add a new phone. Obviously, it "is" easier to run down to Best Buy, Circuit City, Office Depot, Office Max, or Staples.But, do some searching online, and you will find that commercial-grade phones are available which are of much higher quality, and not too much more expensive.

    For example, the ITT Cortelco Colleague-series phones are of exceptional quality, and they even have a line-powered model. No AC adapter or batteries are required - just like the old-fashioned Western Electric phones when "Ma Bell" was still around!Plus, they include every feature that all of the consumer-grade phones do - and, sometimes more.Another brand is Scitec, which supplies commercial phones to colleges and hotels.They, too, are available through online distributors.There are other commercial brands available as well; just do some searching and you will find better options at prices equal to or less than $100 for an excellent quality multi-line phone.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Acceptable or Not?
    I just received this phone to use in a small business office with two phone lines.My first impression was sleek, user friendly, well designed phone with a lot of nice features.The hook up was easy and the menu features pretty straight forward.The display is pleasingly larger than anticipated, which makes it easier to read and the information on the screen is very useful, especially the caller ID info including the phone line calling on.Ok, so why the average rating?Three reasons: 1. the speaker phone is terrible, reverb galoure, unreadible conversation and the speaker / microphone picks up all electic interference, ie. computers, flourescent lighting, etc., making it sounds like your talking next to a noisy washing machine and 2. the information screen is positioned at too flat of an angle, even with elevation stand, to read comfortably from my office chair and 3. the handset microphone is too sensitive, making your voice sound like your talking into the wind!To sum it up, it's nice looking, it's user friendly, the features are great, however the speakerphone and handset are inferior.What's important to you?

    5-0 out of 5 stars High Quality, Great Features
    Perhaps some customers have had bad luck, but our phone works perfectly.The full-duplex speakerphone is clear and easy to hear.The headset works great, and doesn't conflict with the handset.It is easy to switch between handset, headset and speakerphone just by using the dedicated keypad buttons.The voicemail light shows when we have a message, and even blinks the corresponding line orange.Sounds good and looks good, too.It was hard to find a two-line phone with a headset jack and voicemail light, but this one has it all and works great.Definitely recommended.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I'm ordering another phone
    I do not understand the negative comments.I have tried several 2 line home phones and like this phone the best.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Basically, it's a piece of junk.
    My brand new phone wouldn't even allow me to set up basic features.I tried many times to change the dialing from pulse to tone, to no avail.It would say "ok" and then just automatically go back to pulse.The phone rang while I was sitting in front of it and then stopped ringing ... but I could hear it still ringing unanswered in another part of my house.I could not answer it because the call was no longer available on this phone ... it simply said "C4 Call Blocking".Tech support didn't have any suggestions other than unplugging it for ten minutes to allow the phone to reset.I decided to unplug it for life and try another brand. ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Functionally Inferior
    Oops! One would expect by looking at the photo of this phone that it would rest in the charger when not in use. Wrong! According to Panasonic the charger is only for charging a completely dead phone. If you rest them in their chargers instead of letting the battery completely discharge, the battery will die a very early death.

    Very poor functionally. Panasonic says that you cannot change the type of battery that is used. Their suggestion is to buy new phones that have different batteries. Crazy!
    Costco just started carrying these phones. There will be millions of expensive headaches!
    PS When our phones went dead Panasonic's batteries were on back order.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Beware the Battery Life - Panasonic will not support.
    The rechargable battery in this handset WILL develop a memory and become unusable during the warrenty period. Panasonic claims the battery in this handset is an "Accessory" and not covered under the warrenty. And, they say "sorry" but they can not help. Interestly, they do cover some batteries in other handsets.

    My suggestion is NOT so buy products from a company where the usage of the product causes a problem they do not cover. If you are willing to replace the battery yourself every 3 - 6 months of use, it is probably a good handset.

    Personally, I will not buy another Panasonic product.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good, But I Still Want Better
    A nice system overall, but not nearly perfect. We purchased a set of these to replace our burnt out Siemens Gigaset 2402 system. While we were happy to have something that worked (the Siemens system had died a slow death over about a year and ultimately became unusable after a little over two years of use) the features and design of this system leave much to be desired. Numerous minor inconveniences and awkwardnesses make these phones less than they could be--nothing major, and perhaps only noticeable when compared with the excellently designed Siemens phones (really nothing more than the difference between Japanese and German design).

    Two features stand out in comparison with our retired Siemens phones, one negative and one positive. On the positive side, these phones support detection of voice messages on an existing message system, so that it is easy to see from any handset whether there are unplayed messages on either line. On the negative side, the system does not support handset naming. We imagined this would be a minor inconvenience when we bought the phones, but it has proved to be a major drawback: there's simply no way to get the entire family to learn what number goes with what phone. When we had the Siemens system, which supports handset naming, the we had a working intercom system (not to mention convenient transfers of calls); now we're back to shouting.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Believe the bad reviews
    The battery is worthless. I've had the phone for about 9 months, and the battery cannot hold a charge and continues to get worse, and I'm about to buy a new phone to replace my new phone. As the price on this baby already has fallen steeply, I guess panasonic has realized its a dud and you should avoid it all costs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Phone!
    I've had the phone now 5 months or so. Its base speakerphone is very clear and strong, as is the speakerphone on the handset. Programming #'s to save is easy. Programming #'s to save from caller I/D, however, is somewhat tricky until you master the learning curve. I'm glad I took my business associate's advice and paid more to get this model, it has been worth it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible Battery Life
    I bought this phone since our old, and still working, cordless phone was reliable and also a Panasonic. I even bought an extra handset. Well I haven't had this set but a year and the battery life has gotten horrible. If it's on the charger all night, I get about 45 minutes of talk time before it dies. I am always babysitting this phone by making sure it's on the charger. I never had to do that with the old one, and still don't. I am really disappointed in this product.

    I spent a lot of money on these phones and it infuriates me that I'll need to go and buy a new set of phones. Only this time it will not be Panasonic.

    1-0 out of 5 stars I wasted money on this
    Phone looks cool. But, you can talk only for 10 minutes using speakerphone and battery gets exchausted completely and 90% of the time caller id is not displayed. So, please don't waste money on this!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible phone
    I have this phone and its the worst as far as battery life.I thought buying a extra handset would help but that battery life is just as bad.they tell you talk time is so many hours,I am lucky if I get 10 minutes talk time and its dead.I have never been so disappointed in a product like this.For what I payed for this phone it is more hype than anything.Its horrible.I will never buy a panasonic product again. ...

    A popular and affordable telephone, the 210 from AT&T is designed for those who don't want hassles or frills, just a basic phone that's reliable and easy to use. Simple corded operation means you never have worry about misplacing a cordless handset, and the phone's sturdy construction means it's designed to last.

A 12-number memory dial feature lets you store your most frequently called numbers (up to 21 digits)--nine speed dials plus three emergency one-touch dials that are easy to program. A directory card is provided to help you keep track of all your memory dial settings. A redial feature lets you quickly call the last outgoing number (up to 32 digits).

    Three ringer settings (off, low, and high) and three handset volume levels permit customization. Switchable tone and pulse dialing methods are also provided. The illuminated keypad helps you operate the phone even in darkly lit areas, while a prog/mute button on the handset lets you hear the other party while muting your side of the conversation. An excellent value, the 210 also comes backed with a one-year limited warranty.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for what it is
    I'm amazed by the number of people these days who own nothing but cordless phones. Now, I like cordless phones; they're an indispensable part of modern life. But, unlike a simple phone like this Trimline, most cordless phones don't work when the electricity goes out. This phone requires no battery or AC power, and has a lighted keypad, and a ringer on/off switch--all of which make it a nice bedroom phone for emergencies. The sound quality is good, and the volume is adjustable.

    5-0 out of 5 stars MISTAKE
    The design of this corded telephone is very comterble to talk into. The easy-to-read green backlit oval kepad makes it easy to dial at night without having to reach up with one arm to turn on the light. The handset and ringer volume controls makes it easy to turn the volume up or down to make the ring louder or softer and makes it easy to make it to a comterble listening level. The only mistake at&t made was when I press the fire button, it calls 911. It says on the box: "# ONE BEST-SELLING PHONE OF ALL TIME" I can tell why. It has all the features that you can get all in one telephone. I LOVE THIS PHONE!!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars GOOD PHONE
    THIS IS THE **ONLY** GOOD PHONE AT&T MAKES.
    THEIR CORDLESS PHONES ARE UNRELIABLE, CHEAPLY MANUFACTUREDED AND HAVE THE WORST RECEPTION I HAVE EVER HEARD.
    IN MY EXPERIENCE, ONLY THE AT&T CORDED PHONES ARE ACCEPTABLE.
    STAY AWAY FROM THIS BRAND (WHY DO YOU THINK AT&T KEEPS HAVING LAYOFFS- AND THE NYSE TRIED TO UNLIST THEM FOR BEING A PENNY STOCK).. SINCE THE COMPANY BROKE UP INTO 7 COMPANIES, THE PRODUCTS THE PUT OUT ARE NO GOOD.

    AT&T= AMERICAN TRASH TELEPHONE

    5-0 out of 5 stars The most perfect corded telephone is now discontinued
    Imitated poorly by Conair and Bell South, among others, the classic AT&T 210 Trimline is the follow-on to the original pre-divestiture Trimline telephones. Once available in white, bisque/ivory, a greenish color, and black, it's now discontinued. Every few years the manufacturer of the 210 changes. My first 210s are made by Philips. The newer ones are manufactured by some company in China called "Advanced American Telephones." The quality is the same. I have attempted to use the Conair and Bell South knock-offs and none of them have the solid feel and sound quality of the AT&T models. When we used to live nearby a radio transmitter only the 210 Trimlines could filter out the interference.

    Notable features include a weighted base and the current models being sold have a handy cord winder in the base to shorten a long modular line. The handset cord is the AT&T Tuffcord style so it does not kink, sag, and by some magical technology does not get dirty like the cheaper knock-offs. Features that nobody needs on a phone like this include memory redial and wall mounting.

    Sadly this product has been discontinued. I have always wanted a red "hotline" colored 210 but they don't exist exept in the form of the old rotary-dial and transformer-powered touch-tone Trimlines installed by Bell before divestiture.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Extremely comfortable phone!
    I bought this phone because it didn't take up much space. Of course, I bought a black one, not a white one.

    The design of the phone is very comfortable to talk into, and makes long conversations to be less painful.

    The only problem I did have, however, was the ability to set memory numbers is very difficult. You actually dial the number when connected to a phone line, and if you don't hang up quick enough, you will dial the number. So I highly recommend you don't set this up in the middle of the night, which was the mistake I made. :) ... Read more

    The price for this phone is just amazing. The sound and range are better than the Siemens we first bought and then brought back (that was a $120 phone). It is easy to dial, compact look but does not feel cheap. I am VERY happy with it and glad that I read the previous reviews.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great phone for the price
    This is a great phone, Ive had mine for a while and it works great. The battery seems to last forever, I've only got it to begin to go dead 1 or 2 times, and that was only because I left it off the charger for a while. I also went on vacation for a week and I forgot to put it on the charger and it was still wasn't even near dead. You can also save 10 phone numbers on it. It has a long range too. It is also hearing aide compatible, has call waiting and many different channels in case the one you're on begins to break up. For the prize I highly recomend this phone.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great phone except for one problem
    This is a great phone. It had all the features I was looking for -- 2 lines, conf, call waiting, call id, transfer, mute, headset jacks, volume, ringer on/off. The only problem is that you cannot turn off the ringer on the handset. If your talking on one line and another call comes through on the other, it rings loudly in your ear. I called Tech Support and you cannot turn this off -- only to hi or low volume (and 'low' isn't that low). If it weren't for this, I'd recommend it highly.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Cannot recommend it
    After less than one year, I am shopping for a new phone. The handset does not work anymore. I replaced the battery thinking that was the problem but it wasn't. When I click on one of the lines, there is either no sound at all, no dial-tone or anything OR it is just static and fuzz.

    I hope my next phone lasts longer than this one did!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not a good desk phone!
    I bought this phone with the intention of using it in my home office. The caller-id function is very important to me. Unfortunately, the phone lays to flat for you to see the caller-id display or read the keypad. Also, speakerphone volume is really loud, even when turned all the way down. I am taking this phone back.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great cordless solution
    Few cordless phones I've owned have been as well designed and manufactured as the AT&T 2230 dual handset. I'm a little obsessive when it comes to the "touch" of consumer products, and if something doesn't feel quite right, or cheap, I don't buy it. In the world of cordless phones, you truly get what you pay for. There may be cheaper 2.4ghz phones available, but none that I found were as well made as these two beauties.

    The 2230s are a pleasant surprise. Lightweight, solid craftmanship, with a nice arc in the back that fits comfortably in your hand. The face is just slightly concave, with sturdy, tight numerical buttons. The buttons are actually my favorite part. They're solid, don't slide around in their holes, and your fingers don't rub up against the other buttons while pressing them. In other words, the user interface gets an A+. The phone feels like it was designed for the natural curves of your hand and fingers.

    The outside casing feels very sturdy and tight around the edges, which leads me to believe they'd easily survive a fall. The description reads as being "champagne" in color, and I never really noticed the color before. They're more metallic than cream, and very nice looking.

    The ear piece is also slightly concave and smooth, and fits your ear quite nicely.

    To top it all off, the display is a wonderful backlit green light that's bright with easy to read LCD. The menu interface is very easy to figure out; allowing you to program in numbers, check your caller ID, and even change the name of the phones (mine are named Harold and Maude).

    In case the "dual" part isn't clear, one of the sets plugs in to a power outlet and a phone jack. The other just plugs into an electrical jack anywhere in your house -- no phone line required. This was the deal maker for me, for I needed a phone in an office that didn't have an easy to reach phone jack.

    All in all I'm very pleased with the set. The previous review talking about volume / sound quality could be because they didn't turn up the receiver volume on the phone, which is quite easy to do and gets as loud as you could possibly need. I guess "quality" is a personal thing, but for me they blew my old 900mhz phones out of the water.

    If I needed another set for an office or second home, I wouldn't hesitate buying another pair.

    2-0 out of 5 stars One word - Unreliable
    I bought the AT&T 2230 2.4 GHz Dual-Handset Cordless Phone set last summer for my small one bedroom apartment. It seemed like the perfect phone and it was for a while. I had absolutely no problems with it for the first 6 months. It had all the features I wanted plus a few more I did not use. The range was fine, I could take it all the way down to the laundry room and it still worked perfectly. I never had a problem with battery life, signal, or clarity. I thought I had purchased the last phone I would need for a very long time.

    When it came to move into my house I bought a second set with the answering machine thinking the convenience of all four phones being the same and being able to stick each handset in any charger was worth it. The pager system between handsets also sounded handy for getting a hold of someone say in the garage and whatnot. About two months after settling into my new home the phones started acting up. First the signal strength would go in and out. Calls would get disconnected and the battery life stinks. Then the phones just stopped working. When I get a call now the base unit rings but when I go to grab a receiver it shows "OUT OF SERVICE" on the display and will not work. I end up running around the house looking for one that will respond. I tend to miss most of my calls now because of this. The receivers go in and out, sometimes working, sometimes not. Less then a year after purchasing them I am already shopping for a new phone. In the beginning I figured I would spend a little extra and get a phone that would last, but it did not end that way.

    I would highly advise at looking elsewhere towards a different brand. Unless you like the idea of having to replace your phone every six months, this phone set is not for you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
    I have had this phone for over a year and it is ideal for my situation. I have one jack upstairs and one in the kitchen. You get two phones in one with only one base set to plug in. I keep the base and one handset upstairs and the extension phone downstairs that doesn't have to be plugged in. It is the best phone I have owned and I have bought expensive ones in the past. I wish I could get another extension phone to add to it. I may just buy another set for myself for Xmas.

    My husband bought this phone shortly before we were married and never had any trouble with it, than shortly after we were married it started acting up sometimes not even letting us answer it. The caller ID is totally unreliable and is iffy at times. <br /> The reseption on it is mute at times. I have answered the phone before to find that it hung up on me all on its own. I tell my husband that it is the demon phone. We tried to replace it but had just as much trouble from that one. All in all im still on the hunt for the perfect phone. One thats not possesed.

    This phone worked great for about four months. After four months, one phone began displaying the message "Out of Order." After that message appeared, the phone never worked again - despite changing it's battery. The second phone lasted about two additional months before it began displaying the same "Out of Order" message. Someone should have indicated on the box that it was really a disposable phone! ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars am radio comes in loud and clear
    I have always had a GE phone and appreciated the quality and ease of use. This one has everything I wanted...digital answering machine, call waiting caller id, corded...and the am radio reception I didn't want. I can hear the local traffic and weather as well as the person on the other end. I exchanged it for the same brand thinking I had gotten a lemon...no luck. This one is exactly the same. So, it's back to searching for me. A few reviews mention the SW Bell, so I will try to locate one of those. Too bad GE lost a loyal customer:-(

    2-0 out of 5 stars Lousy Speaker Phone but ok otherwise
    I bought this phone because I wanted an inexpensive SpeakerPhone and guess what I got? A cheap unusable SpeakerPhone. The rest of the telephone seems to work ok, good contrast adjustment, Caller ID seems to work ok, voice clarity is ok. If you want a SpeakerPhone this one is not for you, if you want a decent corded Caller ID phone then it might work for you.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Answerer quit working
    We have had this item for less than a year. The answerer stopped working. Trouble shooting tips says, "Unplug power cord from the outlet and plug it back in". Simply, that doesn't correct the problem. Calling the 1-800 number does not give satisfactory information. It gives you a regular phone number to call for additonal help. That could be expensive. Over all, without usable trouble shooting advice, it's unsatisfactory.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing
    I bought this phone about 4 months ago. It seems to have a mind of its own. It randomly does not record messages or caller ID. This happens at least once a day, but up to 3 times a day depending on call volume. It it weren't for my wall phone which also has caller ID, I would have no idea these people called.
    I have sat next to the machine and listened to an incoming message and noted that the machine did not list it on the caller ID and did not have any history/recording of the call. It also randomly cuts people off about 30 seconds into their message. Other times it records a 2 minute message just fine. Very undependable. It also does not list incoming calls from the day in any kind of order. I will press the key to go through the calls from the day and get several calls dated from a day or two earlier mixed in with the current days calls.
    Would not recommend purchasing this model.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Happy Talker in San Diego
    I have been more than satisfied with this GE phone. I purchased it nearly three years ago, and it has worked fine ever since. It is easy to use and program. Prior to finding this phone I purchased several others but returned them because of poor sound quality or other draw backs. I was in the process of ordering another phone like this one (as a gift) when I came upon several less favorable reviews. I was surprised since I have been so pleased with it. Maybe I've just been lucky. Or, perhaps, dissatisfied customers might be more motivated to write reviews than satisfied customers. (Note: I do not have caller ID and thus have not used those functions of this phone.) ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone
    I've had this phone for about 4 months now and have been very happy with it. The sound quality is very good and the phone has a number of nice features, and also has a nice contemporary design. A previous reviewer gave this phone a bad rating because the memory only allows for 32 digit numbers and the base unit will only accomodate 4 handsets. While this is true and may be a limitation for business use, it is not a limitation for most home uses. Besides the 2.4 GHZ, 3 mailboxes, 30 minutes of recorded messages, and the ability to have up to 4 handsets, this unit also stores a spare battery in the base unit which re-charges it. The spare battery is also used as a backup power source for the base unit if the power goes out in your home so you can still use the phone. I have also been pleasantly surprised with how long the battery lasts. It's no problem getting 5 hours of talk time between charges. And the speaker phone in the handheld unit, while not sounding the same as if you were speaking into the phone directly, works and is a nice feature. The phone is small and light weight which is another plus when clipping it onto your belt for use with the headset. All in all a very nice phone with a nice set of features.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Arguably the best multi-set 2,4ghz phones on the market
    At first i was apprehensive on spending so much on a phone based on the VTECH brand. I have used sanyo, uniden, and panasonic cordless phones in the past. Based on reviews here and on epinions.com i decided to take a chance on this model by VTECH. Siemens units have had terrible reviews. ATT, panasonic, and sony all had lower overall reviews on the internet. Make sure you do your homework on which brand to buy.

    I have one base unit and one additional handset from VTECH.

    PROS: ----- 1) easy to set up and easy to use. 2) sleek design 3) love the built in handset speakerphone - my #1 requirement 4) i have had no reception or handset signal problems. 5) looks like you can replace battery pack with two rechargable AA batteries. (some self-ajustments required. but saves $$)

    CONS: ----- 1) expensive. especially when you figure in the cost of extra handsets. 2) non-speaker phone volume seems low. can be adjusted during each phone use. as soon as i switch it to speaker phone, it is too loud.

    overall this is a good product and you won't regret it. besides, if you are unhappy you can alway return it within 30 days.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Close, But No Cigar
    To me, the Vtech 2461 is a fine example of good intentions gone awry. The handsets and base units are compact, attractive, and multi-featured. The handset sits fairly securely in the base unit, unlike some other vertically stored phones, but the wall mounting system is a horrible kludge. Do not buy this phone if you need a wall-mounted unit. The sound quality is decent enough for a wireless unit. It will never be confused with a wired phone, but we found it satisfactory. Range was sufficient for our use around the house and yard, with no problems. Programming the phone via its multi-level menu system is easy enough. For us, the problems with this phone are not in the set-up, range or sound quality, but in ease of use. We bought this phone for home use, expecting to be able to use multiple (up to 4) handsets at various locations around the house. I think that most purchasers would have the same type of use in mind; given that it is a single-line phone it would not seem to be aimed at a business market. The ability to keep a directory on the handset was important to us. We were amazed and disappointed that there was no way to transfer directory entires (all or part) from one handset to another. If you want four handsets around the house with identical directories, you must manually program each handset, a very tedious job at best. When a phone number changes, you must make the rounds of the handsets changing each one individually. I can see that in an environment where a particular user has a single assigned handset this might be an advantage. In average home use, it is a major drawback. The Siemans Gigasets, by the way, apparently allow you to maintain your handset directories either way. At the top of the handset keypad there are three "soft keys", keys whose use changes and which are labeled with the current use by a display above them on the screen. These on-screen soft-key labels are so small as to be almost unreadable, especially by older eyes. In many modes the left and right soft keys become scroll-down and scroll-up keys, but the keys are arranged horizontally. A single vertical rocker, a'la Nokia, is far preferable. Really poor ergonomics! To find a number in the directory, you can either scroll through the directory or use a 'find' feature. Scrolling is fine if you have few entries. If you have many entries you will want to 'find' what you're looking for. To do this you must first press a 'mem' soft key. Instead of finding yourself in the directory, you now have to read the diminutive soft-key labels to see with soft-key is now the 'find' key and press that. You can then enter one or more letters of the name you're looking for, but the names matching what you've entered do not show up so that you can see how you're doing; no, you must press the 'find' key again. Now catch this: the 'find' soft-key is now a different soft-key than the 'find' you pressed a second or two ago near the start of the operation! Again, lousy ergonomics. This sort of thing, along with some basic missing features (no speed dial, can't get to answering machine from a handset) have disqualified this system for us. It is being returned. Too bad, because Vtech is so close to having a great little system here!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Phone Lasted 11 months! Warranty replacement lasted 7 month
    Received our first phone for a birthday present 8/2002. It broke at about 11 months (just the answering machine). Called the company and they were great about a warranty, and replaced the unit (but did not replace the cordless headset that had originally came with the first unit). The warranty replacement was received 10/14/03 (I kept the original UPS tracking slip). Just called the company today (3/27/04), just over 7 months later, as the replacement phone quit working again - same problem. Guess what, it is no longer covered by warranty per customer service! They will give me a great "loyalty customer" discount, but would you trust this brand? I'm thinking I'll try another brand. Wish you luck on your purchase!

    3-0 out of 5 stars I loved it until it stopped working.
    I bought this system in February 2002--26 months ago. It was excellent while it lasted. The sound quality was good, the memory was useful, the phone was comfortable to hold and to dial, and the anwering system was a great improvement over my old answering machine that used tape. However one day the phone just stopped working. Since it was within the 1-year warranty period I was able to ship it back to the manufacturer and receive a replacement. The replacement phone worked fine--until this week, when it stopped working again for no reason. Now it is out of warranty and the extended warranty I purchased from Sears has also expired and is now useless. Like one of the earlier reviewers, my relationship with this phone has been one of soured love. I am hoping I can find an equivalent phone that will last longer than 1-2 years. I don't think that's too much to ask, but maybe it is. If 2 years is enough for you, than by all means, get this phone, and enjoy it while it lasts. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good sound, Good range and Good recording
    I've been looking for an answering machine/cordless phone to replace my old AT&T 5635. I needed better quality message recording and a speaker phone option. Most reviews complained about recording and/or speaker phone quality problems from VTech, AT&T and Panasonic. The Uniden line did not suffer from this shortcoming in most of the reviews I saw. Initially I was looking at the new 5.8Ghz model, but the price was more then I wanted to pay. I bought this 2.4Ghz model and it is everything I needed and then some. The only limitation I have noted is that you cannot talk on both cordless phones at the same time, but you can use one cordless and the base speaker phone together. You can also transfer a call from one cordless to another or to the base. Record time is limited to 10 minutes and can be set to limit each message to either 1 or 4 minutes. Not really a big deal for me, but if you get a lot of messages get a phone with larger memory. Reception is good, as is speaker/mic quality on the handsets. No static noted in my area.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased!
    So far I have been pleased with this purchase.

    Pros:
    Great reception and range. Great battery life. I talk on the phone a lot and sometimes forget to charge it for a day or two and have no problems. Clear sound quality. Ability to access messages from the handsets as well as the base. I purchased my set with headsets included and use them every time I'm on the phone, definite bonus for busy moms! Preprogrammed outgoing message for answering machine, but you can also record your own without overriding the original. So if you ever want to switch between the two, you can.

    Cons:
    You do have to program each phone individually for storing numbers, changing ring tones, etc. Somewhat of a drawback, but not a major complaint.

    If you are looking for a multiple handset system that you can have more than one person on the line at the same time, this won't work. Only one handset can be used at a time, and a call has to be "transferred" to the other handset. (for my purposes, this is not a big deal).

    So far I have been happy with this phone. I'm still learning the different features that are available. It's not a complicated phone, but is definitely a lot different than my basic 900 mhz phone with no options.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Good features but messes up my WAN
    2.4 GHz range is used by my WAN base station. Which makes it impossible for me to use both my phone and the WAN at the same time. This sux.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Uniden & Quality - words that don't go together.
    Over the past 17 years I have purchased more Uniden phones than I care to remember. I bought them early on because I was young and just starting out and didn't have much money (eg - THEY were cheap). I bought them later on because Uniden phones always offered more features than anything comparably priced (eg - I was cheap).

    But thru the 17 years the one constant w/ Uniden phones was that they were all seriously lacking in quality! The early phones just plain sounded bad... the later phones would just break within months.

    I purchased the TRU-4485-2 phone system over a year ago (paying a bit more than they are currently being offered for) because of all the great features: two phones, two bases, digital answering machine, headsets etc.. And I hoped that the Uniden quality problems I'd experienced in the past would now be solved simply because these were not LOW cost phones (well, maybe they were considering all that package contains). This phone system was simply the most expensive system I'd ever purchased.

    Well... within 3 months both headsets were not working --- both headsets developed shorts in the cord and one phone's headset-jack became loose and would no longer work w/ any headset. I dropped one phone from my lap to the floor and immediately began having problems w/ voices dropping out.

    Within 6 months both phones stopped working. Well, that's not exactly true -- they would work when they felt like it. One phone would only work if you twisted it a few times or slammed it against a counter and then it would only work a little while until I 'fixed' it again. The 2nd phone would only work if you plugged in the headset but the headset jack on the phone was screwed up so it was constantly dropping voices (either I couldn't hear the caller or the caller couldn't hear me).

    Now, I must admit that I dropped both phones from time to time and while I'm sure that's not a good thing I'm also sure that everyone who has ever owed a phone has also dropped them from time to time. It's unavoidable considering the amount of time most of us spend talking on the phone. Phone manufacturers must also know this and most build quality phones that can take a good amount of punishment.... most of them -- but Uniden ain't one of 'em.

    2 stars simple for the feature laden system (hell, I still use the answering machine).

    After spending one hundred thirty-eight for this phone system that barely lasted 6 months I once and for-all swore off uniden phones! But wouldn't you know it... my wife went out and purchased ANOTHER uniden system (this one was a cheap $59 two phone, 2.4 ghz) to replace the one mentioned above!?!? When I asked her 'why?' after spending months cursing at the previous phone system, she replied ".. it had more features than the other phones"!

    I wanted to take that phone right back but she didn't keep the receipt. This time, the phone sucked right out of the box!! The sound quality was horrible and while it was listed as a 2.4 ghz it wouldn't even work if I was more then a 60 feet and a couple of walls removed from the base.

    I got fed up w/ the whole fiasco and went out and bought a couple of industrial cordless phones from Engenius. These phones are metal and weigh a ton and don't have anyway for me to add headsets to them but they sound great and will keep a signal from a city block away...... and they cost an arm and a leg.

    Other then the hernia developing from using the new phones for long periods of time --- i'm relatively pleased.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Always on the phone....
    I'm always on the phone, it's part of what I do best. *wink*
    My favorite little subby got Me this phone, although he didnt like it. I HAD TO HAVE IT.

    Pros: Adored the various ringer tones!
    Very lightweight, clipon for the cami-top, yay!
    Headset compatible, siemens didn't have this on the main phone I bought, I had to buy the extension just to use headset!
    Easy to read buttons, lights up!
    Easy to figure out... hey, very important. Try siemens 4200, then you'll appreciate this point!!! *grin*

    Cons: OH MY, I had to yell to be heard, and thought I needed a hearing aid to hear ANYONE!!! The worst reception! And honey, I don't have lots of appliances. I have the bare basics.
    Battery life wasn't too wonderful. Bad apple, maybe.. I talk on phone too much? maybe... hehehe What are they for???
    Static and background noise in phone. It was there, and it was there anytime I went outside. Even had my line checked!
    You have to transfer the call to the other handset. How silly is that?? Maybe they should market for businesses only?

    I was very, very disappointed. Understand, I am used to 40 buck phones, and I get this 150 ( at time ) buck one, and it is CRAPOLA!! C'mon. Needless to say, My Mother now has a VERY nice phone, as I didn't return it in time.
    Now I am giving dad this Siemens 4200, cause it is the bomb in some ways, but SUCKS in the ways that TRULY count for Me. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Problems with Sound Quality
    I purchased this unit and had to return it due to problems with
    the sound quality when playing back messages. The machine has some
    very nice features, but if the messages are not clear, then the
    unit is not reliable. I may miss some important information. I
    even left messages, I knew what I said, but during playback, some
    words were muffled and difficult to understand. I was surprised
    that ATT put on the box, "Excellent Sound Quality". Its not.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Its an answering machine..not an MP3 player!
    I've had this unit for 5 months and have had no complaints. Its a good little basic machine that gives you your messages when you are away. The battery backup feature is great. This unit was one of the few machines that were working for me in the aftermath of Hurricane Isabel.

    Yes, the sound quality is not top notch; but who needs concert clarity on an answering machine? I guess if your friends mumble...

    I also like being able to set the rings at a reasonable 5 or 6 before the answering machine kicks in--plenty of time to race to the phone if you are anywhere in the vicinity. Color me satisfied.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this machine
    Just adding my voice to the others here. I've had much the same problems:

    - As others have already noted, the sound quality of the recording is terrible. I often have to replay a message 4 or 5 times to understand it.

    - Just a few months after I bought it, when I picked up the receiver to answer a call, I sometimes had to jiggle the switch hook to get it to answer. Then it started cutting people off right in the middle of a conversation. Now it's so bad that when you pick it up you can jiggle all you want and it doesn't answer at all. I've given up using this piece of junk as a phone - I just use it as an answering machine.

    - Now the last straw is that I can't retrieve my messages remotely. I dial my number, it answers on the 2nd ring like it's supposed to, I key in my code, and it just sits there and does nothing, and then hangs up! I've gone through the setup several times, and I'm sure it's set up correctly. But I can't retrieve my messages!

    Don't waste your money on this piece of junk! If anyone knows of a better machine... please post it here.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Negative Reviewers are Right
    I bought this machine to replace my old cassette-based Panasonic that had finally died from incessant telemarketer calls.
    The AT&T's set up was easy and all the features work, but the sound quality is unacceptably low. I hardly recognize my own voice on the recorded message, and callers sound as though they are speaking from under a blanket. Pity AT&T didn't consider improving the sound quality for a few dollars added to the price.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Unreliable
    We've had this phone for six months, it has acted strangely the whole time. Recently it started refusing to connect when the receiver is picked up, so you have to jiggle the button to get it to answer. I'm looking for a new phone now.... ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nicest home phone I've seen
    This is probably the nicest home phone available. I'll break it down to what I like and dislike about it:

    Likes:
    + Great styling, small size, good weight, comfortable to hold, ergonomic.
    + Easy to use menu system. I was able to figure everything out in just minutes before I even opened the manual.
    + Like previous VTechs with CID, it has the ability to dial and end calls like a cellphone.
    + Speakerphone in handset, it gets plenty loud enough.
    + Backlit LCD makes it much easier to read than non-backlit phones.
    + Backlit keypad, a practical feature that is omitted from other "high-tech" phones like Cybergenie, Engenius, Siemens, etc.
    + Full dot-matrix display which helps readability.
    + 3-full lines for CID, much better than my previous 2-line VTech 900MHz.

    Dislikes:
    - Background noise. My phone picks up a low-level static/noise/buzzing even with all computers and electronics turned off. It's not loud or disturbing, I only hear it when no one is speaking. My 900MHz VTechs were crystal clear in comparison.
    - Durability of finish. The store displays I've seen all have spots where the silver paint wore off of the handset and base. Mine is still looking new, but I'm very careful when I set it back in its base.
    - Slower response than my 900MHz phones. When the phone is idle and I pick up and press a button, there is a slight delay. It's just a few milliseconds, but noticeable.
    - Lack of tactile feedback in the keypad. I noticed some display models had a lot more tactile feedback than mine. I guess VTech must have changed something between the first phones and mine.
    - Lost the side-mounted volume buttons that my 900MHz VTech had. Putting volume into a soft key was a step backwards, even Nokia added the volume buttons onto the side of their cellphones.

    There is a lot I think VTech could do to refine it, like scroll up/down hard buttons, ability to mark memory entries as "Global" and have them sync with other handsets, and mapping some of the memory entries to the numeric "speed-dial" numbers. However, so far as home phones go, this is one of the best I've seen. Not the best in sound quality, but when features and styling are taken into account, definitely a top choice. The <$... price tag makes it worthwhile. The only thing that would be much better is if Nokia made a land-line home version of their popular 6160 cellphone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I couldnt talk without it !
    I have had the phone for over four years now and i love everything about it. With most cordless phones you have to get more then one type and with this one you can get just another handset and if your not near the hand set or your to lazy to find it just pick up on the speakerphone. What isn't there to love about it. If you are looking for a long lasting good quality phone this is the one for you.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Pooly designed keypad
    The keypad on this phone is very small and gave out on me just after a year. I see that VTECH uses a similar keypad on newer models. Beware and don't waster your $.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Excellent features, mediocre signal
    First off, for its price, this phone has a very nice features. I love having a hansfree speakerphone on both the base and the handset. The phone does everything I need to do. I was very impressed with it when I got it. I'd give it 5 stars on its features/price alone.

    Unfortunately I have to give it 3 stars, because of its mediocre signal quality. This phone is simply unusable around any type of 2.4GHz interference, particularly 802.11b and 802.11g wireless networks. Long antenna shaped objects nearby also tend to cause interference. I knew these limitations before I bought it, and I figured it would be okay because I need to use this phone in my dorm room, which is not very big, so signal issues wouldn't really be an issue. But having said that, I can't go too far outside my room before the signal drops to unusable.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A W E S O M E ! ! ! !
    You have got to choose this phone - I have had it for two years, and can easily say I will never switch!!!! It has NEVER given me a problem - The intercom feature is nice, and the speakerphone on the handset is the clearest around!!! A definate pick!!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great quality speaker phone for the money
    I have the older version and like it so much I'm buying this one for my mother-in-law. It has great quality for the speaker phone part and is so handy if you end up having to be on hold for a long time and don't want to sit there with the phone pressed up to your ear. The volume controls are helpful too when you have that relative with the really loud voice. I've owned my first one for almost 6 years and it still working great.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Works, but is noisy
    I am going to return my phone. The sound quality is not adequate. Friends and family claim I sound 'tinny'. I notice a lot of hiss when using the handset.

    3-0 out of 5 stars good while it works
    I had this phone for about 2 years before it died. No complaints until then.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad a phone for the price
    This phone solved the simple speakerphone-lessness problem and solved it decently. Well, actually I would say for the price, its difficult to expect more than this quality.

    Sound quality is fine, audible enough. But the product is not ergonomically designed. After a while if you are holding the earpiece, it hurts and maybe they want you to use the speaker phone feature and appreciate it.

    If you are hunting for a cheap phone with speaker phone facility only, then go for it.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Works great but doesn't last long
    In the past three years I've had two of these phones. They both worked as advertised, and the speaker works very well. However, about a year ago the first one died (nothing but static on the line, eventually giving the "phone off the hook" noise even with the handset hung up, none of the other phones would work while it was plugged in). And just this week, the second one died. Maybe I expect too much, but I want my phone to last more than a couple of years. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works great for me, and I've returned a lot of phones
    This phone has excellent clarity and features. I haven't used caller ID since I don't have the service. All of the other features were exactly what I wanted and work well. I especially wanted a full function speaker phone with keypad for checking my voicemail at work, for long hold times when calling businesses, and navigating automated answering systems that require lots of keypad entries.

    I use this right next to my computer and have no interference. I also have another 900 mhz phone in my house and do not get any interference or crosstalk.

    I have read through many phone reviews on Amazon and Epinions and have concluded that there is no one single phone or manufacturer that gets consistently good reviews. It is such a guessing game. I returned 3 other phones in a 2 week period before I bought this one. It's about the only way to select a phone. The phones I returned were 900 mhz and 2.4 ghz brand name phones, and all had lousy audio quality. This one is a winner though. I hope it lasts a long time so I don't have to go through all of this again to find what I want.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great design, but easily broken
    I loved this phone. I loved it so much I've purchaced 2 of them. Now I'll admit, I'm rough on phones, but both managed to become unusable within one year of purchace. That is really my only gripe.

    Now the good stuff. The design is good. I like the phone, the number of mailboxes, the answering system was great. The caller ID was a tad slow, but not any more than my other caller ids. Overall it was a good phone, but not meant for long term hard heavy usage.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
    This phone looked like a good alternative for people with wireless networks who want to avoid 2.4GHz interference but don't want to pay the inflated prices for 5.8GHz phones. It has useful features like answering machine and speakerphone. But the sound quality is very poor, even distorted. Callers sound like they are at the bottom of a deep well. You can hear an echo of your own voice in the handset along with a constant buzzing. As 900MHz phones get phased out, it looks like there will be no good alternative to 5.8GHz.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Seemed Fine But Went Downhill Fast
    I bought this phone after reading some reviews that made it sound like a wonderful buy for the cost. But once again, you get what you paid for and this phone was a waste of money and time. The sound comes in and out, the range is horrible and it isn't a very comfortable phone for long conversations.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Looked good on paper, but..
    I've been on a search for a decent speakerphone, answering combo, with CID for a few weeks now and this unit was the 2nd stop on my search. Everything looked great on paper, even though I have no use for 3 mailboxes, I thought I'd give it a try and the price was quite attractive.

    The first thing I noticed was that the CID display was hard to read because it isn't backlit, nor does it have any option to change the contrast. Sound quality on the handset was ok, although some people commented that I sounded muffled to them. The next thing I disliked was having to set the time on both the phone and the answerer, other phones allow you to only set it once, and even then it is updated automatically by the CID service. I then recorded my outgoing message and when playing it back I could barely hear it and it was badly garbled. I also found that recorded messages were badly garbled during playback as well. I've had a digital answering machine before this and never had a problem with garbled messages before. When I tried to retrieve my messages remotely, I was unable to get the machine to recognize my code no matter how many times I tried. Because of this, I ended up returning the unit the next day.

    I'm now trying out a Panasonic 2.4GHZ combo unit - praying that I don't experience the battery problems that many others have posted about. For the money, the Panasonic has everything I need and more, and so far so good, but since I've only had it for a few days it's hard to tell if it's a keeper or not. ... Read more
