      Has some good features but overall disappointing

      I like tilt-able LCD and it's big characters. I like the idea of the light for an incoming call, although it is too dim unless you happen to be focused on the phone which is at a 90 degree angle from my desk, so when the ringer (which is not loud enough even at Max setting) emits it's feeble sound I have to focus on the phone as in "is that thing ringing" to see if the incoming call light is really illuminated. The ringer has far less volume than any of my other standard phones. Aside from that, you supposedly can save numbers with labels to the "Directory" but there seems to be no way to have a label with a space in the name. I for example had and incoming call which was labelled in the call log as "800 [space]Service", but when I try to edit that name to something more descriptive which contains a space such as "Fraud[space]Protection" it seems to be impossible. While it does have Caller ID and Call Waiting ID, it does not have any indication of a Missed Call short of going though the Call Log manually. Even my old Radio Shack Talking Caller ID box would have a flashing red light if you has missed a call, and it would seem that it would have been easy enough to make the Incoming Call light on this thing also flash to alert you that you had missed an incoming call so that you would know that you need to check the call log. One feature I do like, which isn't mentioned in the woefully inadequate user guide, and I learned about only from another user's review is that you can dial the number without picking up the handset and see that the number is correct and then when you pick up the handset it will automatically dial that number. I also like the adjustable call volume and the Audio Assist while in a call that increases the clarity... I haven't needed to use that, but it a nice idea. Also when the power goes out, which lately has been frequent, it loses all the settings like date and time, which seems strange since it is battery powered.. maybe the power from the phone line is going out with the electrical power, but even if that is so, it would seem the batteries in the phone should make the phone settings remain intact. In short I am disappointed with this purchase and I guess I'll have to look for a standalone caller ID box to know when I have a missed call.

      A simple, traditional, ordinary, corded, touch tone, single line desk phone. Majority of the phones have built in digital answering machines and I wasn't looking for that. This fits the bill. Large buttons, huge display. Terrific sound quality. Has volume control. Shows the current date and time. Shows the length of time for a call. Works on AA batteries. The handset is uncomfortable if you have to hold it between the ear and shoulder to free up your hand. Otherwise, it's an excellent basic phone without tons of unnecessary bells and whistles.

      Unmute beep heard by other party = FAIL

      Posted

      Seriously? The Mute button has to make noise? Its a MUTE button, it should be silent! Failed to look at reviews first as a friend had recommended it... Then he and I were using it on a call to each other and he asked what that beeping was? Why, it's the stupid mute button, we both searched for options to make it un-noticable to the other, but there is no way to use Mute and Speaker phone together without the other party knowing you were muted.

      Not a Good Phone for Small Office

      Bought this phone for my new small busness office and returned it rather rapidly due to poor sound quality, lack of durability, and the fact that it did not include a message center (my mistake - I did not read the description and assumed it had same). I was looking for a quality, nice looking and high performance phone to place on my primary desk, but this phone did not function correctly. I suppose it looked nice, but it's function was disappointing. I returned it and Best Buy was the BEST - they gladly took it back and I bought another brand.

      Great phone for landline use

      This phone replaced an old one we had for years. It has large dialing buttons for ease in dialing, and a big display screen for caller ID, # dialed, date and time information. The only negative is that there is no hold button, but that can be overcome by using the mute button and not hanging up the receiver. We knew about the lack of a hold button, but decide to buy this unit over a more expensive one, and it was worth it.

      Glad I selected this phone. It has all the features that I need. I purchased it to replace a worn out phone of 30 years. I hope this one will last half that long. The features were easy to set up and easy to use. The price was a real bonus compared to many others I reviewed. I did have to purchase a longer handset cord since the one it came with was barely 24 inches (not very useful for a wall phone)

      Keeps On Working When AC Power Does Not

      As a Care Giver for a family member it is absolutely imperative that we have continued uninterrupted phone service. During a recent power outage it became VERY CLEAR that none of our home phones would work without electrical power and we were stranded without emergency phone service. We bought this corded office type phone that works off the phone line power and now we have emergence phone communication even if the house power fails.

      Great landline phone

      Overall I think this is a great landline phone and I am satisfied with my purchase. There isn't a hold button, and also the instructions and setting up of the features isn't very user friendly. Those were the only two negatives for me and the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. I would have give it 4.5 stars if that had been an option.
