Garbage

 

In all honesty, I wouldn't even bother with this for a test environment like mine. It just makes my job more difficult to have to mess around with a phone that half the time won't connect, and makes my various work tasks take that much longer. For a...

They look pretty. The beeps sound kinda nice, too

The range and connection consistency on these is trash. We have to use these at work for making test calls (I work in tech support for a phone company). They are constantly losing connection and the connection quality is horrific. Broken sound and...

Poorly Described

 

I was looking to purchase a single line cordless phone. However, the description of the item online never listed it as an Accessory Handset Only - Requires base to operate. So, I will be returning it for one that can operate by itself. Disappointed.

At&t handset

 

This handset is an additional unit to be located within the residence. We could not ask for any better unit, service wise or cost wise. The handset is as clear in sound as the base. This product is well constructed and worth the cost.

Value for Money, Features, Battery Life, Easy to Use, Display Screen, Performance

ok

 

I was very disappointed when I discovered that it would require voicemail from the phone company instead of having it's own voicemail unit.

Comfortable Handset, Compact design, Easy To Set Up, Good Sound, Strong Signal

No voice mail on unit

A great little phone!

 

I haven't had a cordless phone in over 10 years, because I didn't like them. Well, I thought I'd try one again and I'm very happy with this phone. I haven't had one problem with it yet and I've been using it for several weeks. The calls are so clear...

WOW!

 

I was pleasantly surprised that this phone works great! I chose this phone b/c I did not need an answering machine. You have several options for the ringer volume. Can store phone numbers. Also, sounds very clear. So far, so good!

bargain price for a great little phone

 

Truly a bargain for this phone. We love the small size and simplicity of the bases and phones. They don't take up a ton of room and the color blends in with your home, while looking modern and sleek too. Love the white color. It's a nice basic phone...

Volume Control Problem

 

I agree with other reviewers about various features. However, there is one problem I see with it and probably with other phones of the same design. When talking on the phone, my cheekbone is in contact with the volume control and lowers the volume to...

Great cordless telephone!

 

This was one of the recommended phones in Consumer Reports, and I can see why. It is a great phone with lots of useful features. Directory can be programmed with up to 50 entries and is shared by both handsets. It also has intercom, speakerphone, &...

Great Item, Great Price

 

Easy to use, solid good quality phone. Very pleased with this item; a very affordable price. Only thing I would say is that they describe it as white, it's really more of an off-white/grey which was EVEN BETTER for me!
