      Does NOT have talking Caller ID

      I chose this phone for my parents as Christmas gift. My mother has low vision and they need a cordless phone that a) has big buttons, b) has minimal extra buttons that she won't hit accidentally (for example, no need to retrieve messages since they use something else for messages), and c) had talking caller ID to announce who is calling before she picks up. This seemed like the best of all worlds. But be warned that even though the product description clearly states multiple times that this features talking caller ID, it does NOT. I ended up arranging for them to return these phones and have ordered the CL82213 model which unfortunately does have a built-in answering machine. But I could not find another option on Best Buy's site that had talking caller ID and larger backlit buttons with a fairly simple interface. I'm sure the phone itself is fine, but if talking caller ID is the feature you're looking for, don't buy it for that.

      Simplicity Doesn't Go Out of Style

      I had noticed that the sound quality on my old cordless phone was deteriorating and I thought a new phone might cure the problem. My phone service provider is MagicJack (purchased at Best Buy), which has voicemail, so all I was looking for was a cordless phone with decent sound quality. Bells and whistles were meaningless to me. The AT&T cordless phone was inexpensive and it came with a second handset, which I placed in the kitchen. The problem with sound quality (incessantly breaking up) disappeared as soon as I installed the new phone. It has been working flawlessly ever since. "Extras" include caller ID and a handset locator that causes a lost phone to ring wherever it might be in the house.

      Good phone with limited features

      With less and less people using landlines, trying to find a good landline phone has become more difficult. But this phone was a reasonable price, and was quick to set up. Buttons are a good size as is the screen so you can see who is calling. It has a number of options you can change, including ringtone, but would have been nice to be able to assign specific ringtones to specif contacts. Also would have been nice to have a headset/earpiece socket/plug in. But for the price it does what it is supposed to do.

      Great for elderly people - Great value

      Bought this telephone for a 93 year old aunt. The device needed to be easy to use, totally uncomplicated, without any features that could confuse her, like an answering machine. I also needed a good reception range, as my aunt spends quite some time in her back-yard and the previous Motorola phone didn't have a good reach. I got exactly what I needed. In addition to this: she is also hard of hearing, but by using the speakerphone, that problem got solved. Recommendation: if you need a telephone for elderly people, simple, unexpensive and efficient, you can buy this one (and not spend the ridiculous amounts they charge you for the Uniden phones)

      Very good cordless phones

      This purchase was for my mom. She needed a cordless phone as her old one no longer worked. She also needed one without an answering machine. This works great, and I can hear her loud and clear. She uses it mainly on speakerphone because although she claims she is hearing just fine, she is not. Clearly, this phone is good for someone in denial, as mom is definitely losing her hearing. It does the job, and the price was right.

      Decent Phone

      For the money, you can't beat this phone set. I like that you can choose different ringtones, and the lighted buttons are a great feature. I'm also surprised at how often we use the intercom feature, and the phone has great range and works everywhere on our 1/2 acre lot. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is because the sound quality is slightly muffled. It definitely doesn't sound as good as the Uniden it replaced, or the Panasonic we had before that. Those were good phones and I would've just bought new batteries for them if these AT&T phones weren't so inexpensive.

      Great phone for a nice price. The sound quality is significantly better than I expected. My old land line phones had been dropped a thousand times, were hard to hear on and I couldn't walked very far from the line without getting static. The sales-lady at Best Buy recommended these. I'm glad I listened to her and paid a little more and not settle for the cheapest phones out there. She told me these AT&T phones were high quality. She is right. I can walk anywhere in our 2000+ foot home or the back yard and hear just fine. Couldn't be any more satisfied.

      Great deal on a cordless phone!

      I received this cordless telephone a few days ago, and I'm really enjoying it. For the price, the features are great, and the sound quality of the main handset is excellent! However, I was disappointed that the handsets and bases are grey and WHITE, which does not match my decor. Silver and black would have been a much more versatile color combination! Secondly, the sound quality of the second handset is good enough, but not great, like the main handset. If this lasts as long as my previous AT&T phone (ten years), then I will be very happy.
