Nice phone, but - MOST frustratingly - voicemail does not work with SKY. Need to call 1571 instead, which is so old fashioned.Nobody told us. Why not?

I bought these to replace an older Panasonic set and am rather disappointed. Good in most respects, but I have to disagree with your comment that "It offers great sound quality all round." They are very much less distinct than the old model and the...

Panasonic answer phone with 3 handsets


This product was easy to set up. It was especially easy to transfer my stored phone numbers from the master to the other two handsets. It has lots of features compressively described in the instruction manual. It has lots of great ringtones!
