      So far so good..a bit confused by all the hate lol

      for this phone. Sound quality (again so far is totally fne and very clear which to me for a 15 dollar phone is key!)IThe caller ID is clear and simple. No flashy bells and whistles which many people seem to have expected) I kind of understand the issues some "may" have with where the flash buttom is located, but its really not that bad. Its all in the way you hold the phone- not that difficult lol. When I hold a phone I keep my fingers on the sides on the phone, not rubbing it up and down or all around (which you would need to do for the flash button to be that much of an annoyance) It could have been located in a better place (like maybe on the base but its really NOT that bad). Its made a little cheap (like most phones are today cordless or not) but all in all its fine for me. I use it for work I do from home and will not be hanging it on a wall or what not. To keep it on my lap or desk etc..its working. *This site is actually the one where this phone is rated the lowest* If you go to Amazon, Staples etc..its rated very respectable . not great but more than 70-80% of the people think its sounds great (which i think is key)

      I realize landlines are going the way of the dinosaurs in this cellular, VOIP and social media new world. However, I didn't think I'd get a stinker this bad when searching for a simple wall phone with caller ID. This thing is terrible. First, although it's wall mountable, they provide no short wall cord in the box. You have to wrap the single long cord around plastic tabs recessed in the body to wall mount. Next, no backlight. The thing uses four AA batteries (not included, of course) but doesn't have a backlight. The LCD is hard to read in anything other than optimal light. Next, sound quality is abysmal. I heard not one, not two but at least three different variations of noise on the line. One was random static, another was a constant high pitched whining sound and another was a recurring warbling sound whenever the person on the other end spoke. I'm going to take this stinker back and try one more time before giving up on it completely. As bad as this phone is, I'm assuming it absolutely must be defective. If the second one is any better, I will update this review in fairness. If you're reading this line, it means this is still the original review and the second phone was just as bad as the first.

      I purchased this phone because I noticed in a horrible storm we were having that our landline (simple corded phone) didn't work. No big deal, these are cheap, but everyone should have a landline in case of power outages!! anyway, these phones are obviously basic and similar (or so I thought) this one was $17, all other corded phones seem to run around $10, but I was in a hurry. When I got home to set it up the sticker I removed from the caller id left a residue that not only could not come off but glazed over the screen. not a big deal, but it was an eyesore. The phone cord did not fit well to be mounted within the housing. Another pain, another eyesore. I left the phone plugged in (we were/are having many storms & power outages) and I was startled by the ringer...SOOOOOOO LOUD. adjustable, but not much. The ONE and only time I had to use the phone (storm 3 week 2) no power, I run downstairs happy for not returning it only to find it didn't work. No dial tone, nothing. ***RETURNED*** there was not one single redeeming quality about this phone, please trust me...if you are looking for an emergency phone, do NOT take a chance on this one!!!

      I bought this phone as a troubleshooting tool for working on clients' office phone systems and fax machines. It's small and light, and goes back into its box to keep the cord tidy when not in use. Once I popped in a couple of AAA batteries (not included), last-number-redial worked smoothly (without batteries, it can't remember the last number - so this saves a LOT of time when testing one line after another.) I lost the instruction sheet the first time I took it out of the box, so it took a few minutes to work out how to program memorized numbers (my own cell phone for a sound test; 1-800-444-4444 to get the number I'm calling from). The steps for programming memory locations _could_ be a little more straightforward, but it wasn't too bad. In retrospect, I wish I'd bought a model with a speaker - but for the price I paid, this is excellent value.

      We Have a Winner!

      In need of a corded landline phone that would work during an electrical power outage, we did a side-by-side test of this AT&T TR1909 Corded Telephone versus the RCA 1104 Corded Telephone. The AT&T TR1909 Corded Telephone was the clear winner, based on sound quality (AT&T quite clear, RCA very muffled), ease of operation (AT&T no issues, RCA handset fits too snugly in base and Caller ID is too small to read quickly), and ringtone (AT&T just like a phone in a nice hotel, RCA like some kind of obnoxious alarm). We returned the RCA 1104 Corded Telephone, and now own two of the AT&T TR1909 Corded Telephones, in both black and white. The black is solid black, and the white has a taupe base, which goes well with neutral décor. The AT&T TR1909 Corded Telephone is a nice phone to have on hand in case you need to answer the phone and a cordless phone is not nearby, or in case you have a power outage, which will render your cordless phones temporarily useless. The AT&T TR1909 Corded Telephone is highly recommended.

      Great for backup if you lose electric

      Everyone should check online for what they are interested in before going to the store, It's $12.99 online. In the store, the price said $16.99. Bring any price differences in price to the attention of an employee in that area. They will check and give you the lower price. Phone was a snap to put together. I got it in case I lose electric. Also got it because the cordless phone I have starts to beep only after talking for 15 minutes, letting me know it soon will stop. This, despite the fact it's in the recharge state when not in use. which is most of the time. You have to have caller ID from your phone service provider for it to display incoming call numbers. I don't need that service, so it doesn't bother me.

      This is the dumbest thing under the sun!!

      Most of us, if not all of us who have used a Trimline/slimline type phone, or for that matter any phone where the dialing buttons are on the handset, are used to having an audible tone as we push the number buttons during the act of dialing. This way we know that the phone has registered the button push. Unfortunately, AT&T has decided to buck the convention and set the key press volume so low that the only way to hear it is to have the handset next to your ear. This leads to a different problem – one cannot see which buttons are being pushed. I called AT&T's tech support to see if there was a way to increase the key press volume and the answer I got was "This phone does not have that option". This is the dumbest thing under the sun!!

      Background: my wife bought two of these phones so we would always know where one is (our cordless phones get left all over the place by our kids, making it hard to answer a call before the answering machine picks up). So the only thing that is good about this phone is that it is physically wired into an outlet. Now the bad things: the cord is to short to really be useable. The phone is ultra light, which makes it not seat correctly frequently (when these phones are not all the way hung up, it not only doesn't allow you to receive calls on the wired phone but all phones on that line - this need to ensure phones being hung up properly is from a past era that a lot of people aren't currently used to). The buttons don't diall consistently. The caller ID doesn't work. I wouldn't have bought these.
