This well-made & stylish cordless home phone has all the features you need: lighted dialing, easy call-blocking, speed dialing, lighted date & time & caller-id if you subscribe to it via your phone company, a phone listing for frequently called numbers, a speakerphone option, ringer shut-off options ( for any hours your might want to choose/ or not) , an erasable listing of calls received, and voice-message storage, retrieval & a counter (with a remote access option), etc. Unlike many older call blockers which still ring once, you can set it so annoying blocked numbers don't ring at all.
If you don't need pricey frills like connections to cell phones or text messages, then this is an excellent choice at a good price with strong & clear reception and sound. The phone also has a convenient option that can speak the caller-Id name of the number that's calling you, in either English or Spanish, which can be turned off, and a wall-mounting option for the base unit if wanted.
The unit has has 3 phones & 3 bases, with the main one plugged into your phone line and an electrical outlet, while with the other two you simply plug the base into any electric outlet in your home, and the phone sits in the base.
Each of the 3 phones comes with 2 rechargeable AAA batteries, which last at least 6 years in my experience with older models, and which can be purchased in many stores, if need be eventually, as replacements. You can't use regular batteries.
There is a notice in the instructions for pacemaker and hearing aid users to first consult with their manufacturers to check if their products are shielded from the phone's RF energy output (since it's cordless) in the 1.92-1.93 GHz range.
Bottom line: You'll like this phone. It tales a bit of fiddling and instruction book reading if you want to set up all the various options to your exact liking --but the phone itself is ready to go right out of the box when you put in the supplied batteries and connect it. Just give all 3 phones a few hours to first charge up fully at outlets. You can of course only set up only one or two phones instead of using all three.
