      HELP! I need a new home phone and cannot find what I want exactly.   (6 Answers)

      I want a home phone w/answering machine and no more that 2 additional handsets, Of course caller ID, etc is required. However my ONLY fast and hard requirements are; I MUST be able to 100% mute the ringer volume since I sleep odd hours most of the time. I'm not particular about the brand of phone except VTech is OFF the table and not subject to negotiation. Been there, done that, It didn;t end well, My Budget is $60 to $100, and I need this phone ASAP. Can someone please get back to me so that I may get this purchased and in transit. Sincerely Randy C, Venable

        Answer

        I highly recommend this phone. it only takes one phone cord plug for the whole system and that's the main handset with the digital answering machine. The other handsets only need a power source. The answering machine works great. No matter which handset you pick up you can get your messages. It also has a great intercom so you can call room to room if you want to say call the kids who keep their door closed for privacy without yelling thru the house, so it would work well if you are sleeping and say someone in the kitchen wants to ask someone in a different bedroom something about or dinner or whatever without waking you from yelling or having to leave the kitchen while cooking. The system comes with the answering machine handset and 2 additional ones and is expandable. I bought mine from Best Buy for $50. It just can't be beat. The AT&T - DECT Expandable Cordless Phone System with Digital Answering Machine just can't be beat. Oh and the MUTE button you required is on every handset. You will absolutely love this phone. And the speaker phone works better than any other phone I ever had. You just can't go wrong with this phone.

        Do batteries go dead in handset with no notice?   (5 Answers)

        How many hours will the handset batteries last in live "talk-time" conversations (I see some new phones advertising 6-8 hours) before needing to be recharged; and how long will a handset last on standby (at the bedside but not being used, talked on, receiving calls, or any other activities) before having to go back into the base for recharging. Some of the new phones are advertising 8-11 DAYS! But I must say, this is a very very good deal! .\

          Answer

          I tend to have long ( three hour) conference calls. In use, my battery begins beeping at about 3.5 hours. I just move to another handset. Not actively in use, I would say the charge lasts several days. You also can see an icon that indicates battery power on each handset.

                Answer

                Any handset can answer any call, and any handset can pick up during a call without having to "transfer" the call - they're all live all the time on the same line.

                  Answer

                  Yes, the number of messages is displayed and flashes in red on the main base; base also alerts you with a beep if there are any new messages. Each handset also displays # of missed calls & messages, and you can listen to messages directly from any handset.
