Great old style phone5 Posted by: from: on Wanted a land line phone for conference calls. The sound quality is much better than taking them on my cell phone. The mute button lights up so you know when it's on.

Excellent Phone, Great Features5 Posted by: from: on Beyond being reasonably priced, this phone, but for being "head-set corded", has it all. Large lighted display (when in use), numbers & key pad. Loaded with features of every kind. At present, purchased two & both phones set to "answer on" can be used at same time; message feature, etc., work on both.

Good answering machine!4 Posted by: from: on Overall, I am pleased with the product. The Owners' Manual needs more detail, however.

BIG AND BOLD5 Posted by: from: on I love this phone. It's a real bright white with the great orange screen. The numbers are big, which look good. The sound is as loud as i want it, , the ring adjustable and, all in all, exactly what i had been looking for. I had needed a speakerphone, and that's a perk. A good deal.

Almost flawless5 Posted by: from: on Big buttons, big screen, quality sound, simple operation. No wireless issues, no battery issues. Its a simple corded phone and handset that just works well. The answering machine has a big red flashing button on it when someone has left a message. What else could you ask for? Only flaw that I see is that visibility of the screen is greatly reduced at angles of say 45 degrees or more. On the wall, looking straight at the phone's screen, its great. Laying flat on a desktop with the screen facing up and away from you, the readability of the screen is significantly impaired. But overall, its a really good value in my view.

Excellent phone4 Posted by: from: on Excellent phone, unexpected performance. only issue is I am not able to mute the key press volume which is really annoying.

Great Phone5 Posted by: from: on I bought this phone for a relative who has difficulty hearing a traditional corded phone ring. She can hear this phone easily. In addition, she can hear the caller. The phone is stylish, has an easy to use built in answering machine, a light to indicate an in coming call, adjustable ringer, and adjustable volume control to hear calls better. I highly recommend this phone. It is a great value and well constructed.

Great Phone5 Posted by: from: on So far this phone has worked perfectly. Has all the options I needed. However, I have voice mail through my phone company, and do not need the answering system. No problem there as it can easily be turned off, and back on, if it is ever needed. Best phone I've had, I think.
