    Drives Me CRAZY!

    This phone drives me crazy. I've been using it for a month now. We had a panasonic with big buttons before. My phone started having issues so I just figured I had to buy a new one instead of replacing the batteries (which are often super expensive). So, I went shopping and picked up this phone. I thought it would be fine... But, it wasn't and here's why. #1 Everytime I hold it on my shoulder and I'm reaching for something, the volume button beeps. Ugh. #2 When I try to go to the directory, it doesn't start at the first name. Always at the second. Ugh. So, I have to go up to get to the first name alphabetically. #3 The caller id is defective. It doesn't show all the calls. When it does decide to retain a number, it doesn't show up until a while after the phone call has come in. No help screening calls that way! #4 The caller id doesn't work with call waiting. It will flash up on the screen while you're talking, but unless you interrupt your conversation to look at it, you'll never know who called... because it doesn't record it in the caller id! Ugh again. I had saved my old phone just in case I ended up having issues, so I went down to the basement and dug it out. I discovered it took rechargeable AAA batteries, which are less expensive. So, I ordered some batteries instead and have switched back to my old phone. I really hope that was the issue with it, because this phone drives me crazy and I really don't want to use it anymore.

    I was looking for a new landline cordless phone, and wanted something modern and sleek, something that would blend in with my kitchen, with an answering machine and that sounded great. This phone checks every box! It's so small, and being white and silver just blends in with the cabinets. The sound is very clear, the buttons are easy to press, keypad lights up when in use, and you can screen your calls from any of the THREE INCLUDED handsets. I love that the extra handsets don't need any phone jacks - only an electrical outlet. The answering machine was easy to set up. I only wish it came with a white cord and not a black one. I can't believe I'm raving on and on about a $49 phone!!!! Great phone for so little money!!

    So am writing this review 2 years later. I like the phones but now that I've had them for 2 years the phone batteries are already starting to die. Seems all of the handsets are going at the same time too. Planned obsolesence? Not sure if it's worth buying batteries for this or just replacing the whole thing. Other than the battery issue the phone works as it's supposed to most of the time except for something annoying which I am not sure if it's the u-verse phone system or the phone that is bad. Many times i will try to dial and the phone just doesn't do anything and then all of a sudden it speed dials but then you get a busy signal. It's annoying and will say no signal yet my internet is working just fine at the same time so I'd say these phones don't play well with VOIP phone systems. I should have stuck with the landline system. For the price I paid I guess I've gotten my moneys worth in the last 2 years.

    needed to replace my uniden land line phones; well, actually, i broke one phone from my 3 uniden phone system; and a replacement phone cost more than an entire AT&T system, so I opted to buy new phone system. This AT&T system is 'ok'...the L E D screen is barely readable unless it is lit up; and it only lights up when you it a button. The Uniden allows you to press one button to listen to messages; the AT&T system, you need to hit one button two times. You cannot designate a unique ring tone per caller on the AT&T; you can on the Uniden. But most importantly, the Uniden just sounds better. callers say i sound like I am in a tunnel when they hear me on the AT&T; and I think the same when i listen to my callers. All in all, the phone system works; and I guess for the $50 i spent, i cannot complain. Luckily, these phones are for a vacation home. I am not sure I could live with these phones on a daily basis.

    Works well with VoIP

    Our previous phone did not work well with magicjack (not ringing, dial-tone on answer) so we sought for a replacement. The option of having three handsets rather than two was a plus (more is always better). Setup was easy as usual. Wall mounting plate for base station was a plus. A wall mounting option for the other chargers would be better. So far no issues with magicjack. Sound quality is good. Speakerphone sounds great. AC adapters are compact in size. The ringer types are limited and you can't set specific ring tones for contacts. The directory is stored at the base so there is about a 2-3 second delay when opening it from a handset; not a huge deal. The keypad numbers are much bigger than I'm used to; again not a big deal.

    Installation is quick and easy. The phones have more options than I need. Speaker phone on the handsets is one I like. I have yet to need intercom. Sound quality is good, lighted keypad is nice to have. Price was good. I do not use the answering machine as my service provider includes voice mail in my plan. I really looked for a phone without the unnecessary answering machine but these are still rare. One complaint is that this phone does not give an outward signal that I have voicemail on my service. Also, the full user manual is only available as a pdf online. The irony here is that one should need a manual for a phone and yet they do not give you one.

    i needed to replace my uniden phone system; needed one that had an answering machine base, and 2 satellite phones. I chose the AT&T phones based solely on price...i guess you get what you pay for. Uniden lets you push one button to listen to your messages; AT&T needs you to push two buttons. The Uniden red light flashes when there s a message for you; the AT&T does not flash. The AT&T does a terrible job in showing last phone call received on its screen...sometimes it shows it, sometimes it doesnt. The LED screen on the AT&T is much more difficult to read then the uniden...and there sound quality of the actual phone is much better on the uniden, then the AT&T

    Good Overall Phone System

    I purchased this for my parents to replace a very old cordless phone. I also managed to get a Christmas special where I got the 3 handset version of this package for the price of the 2 handset version. This allows me to have a phone near several spots in their home that didn't have convenient phone jack availability due to the age of their home. The phone clarity is good and the menus are readable by my senior parents. The only negative I have is that while this is really easy to use for me, it's not as intuitive for people of my aged parents (75+). If I were purchasing for myself, I would've also wanted to have Bluetooth integration for my cells, and this system doesn't have that. But that was not needed for my parents.
