    Smart Call Block is great

    It takes some time to set up but once the user establishes their list of regular contacts the smart call block system is fantastic. It really does the job of handling unsolicited and junk calls. And it is easy to use to add someone you may have forgotten once they call. And it is just as easy to block someone who gets through. The only minor issue with the smart blocking system involves any other non AT&T phones you may still have on the system. We keep an old phone in our family room downstairs and even on a blocked call that phone will ring once. However, on any other blocked call there is no ring. The answering system is also clear and easy to use. Unlike other systems the "beep" you hear when you have a message on the machine is just loud enough to hear and repeats just often enough to remind you to check. The 2 cordless units have a clear sound and other AT&T handsets can be added. All in all, a great unit and worth the price.

    I can't honestly give it a good review until I use it for a time. My last phone I purchased similar, gave out before the warranty, and it was too difficult to try & get it replaced. ( Is this the goal?? ) I have no idea if this lives up to all the hype. As stated, works well so far. Bonus..did not realize that it actually had a great screening feature. Thanks AT&T. Purchased this phone specifically for the blocking ability. Am tired of all the phone calls with no one there. So far, it's stopped just about every single one!!! Thank you AT&T. Had other AT&T phones in the past. They all died out before a year was up. Am hoping this lasts longer. Cost enough. Don't have money to throw around. If it does, will eliminate phones all together and I'm serious about that.!!!! Recommend?? MAYBE, despite being forced a yes or no below. It is MAYBE folks..... Oh, and it came with TWO handsets, not one. Good extra!!

    Silence Spam Callers

    This phone really helps reduce or eliminate spam callers. You load in up to 50 numbers that you allow thru unconditionally. All others hear a request to identify themselves and then press # or else the call is terminated. Those callers that comply lead you to receive a VOICE ANNOUNCEMENT identifying the caller and giving you the option of taking the call or letting it go to voicemail. There’s no monthly fee unless you’re not already seeing caller IDs. Caller IDs must be seen by this phone for the screening to function. And BestBuy had the best price on this phone.

    Very nice screen for viewing caller information. Smart Block Feature is a plus but takes some practe using it. Speaker phone sound seems to have a bit of an echo. Actually, there are a lot of nice features to this phone but required studying the directions to learn how to access them all. I especially like that there is a corded phone and 2 cordless phones. Note: the corded phone continued to work during a power outage. Not sure for how long. I only noticed because I accidentally picked up the base phone and started dialing out, when I realized this phone should not be working right now.

    This is an excellent product. The buttons are easy to read, and the menu/controls are intuitive. Operation-wise, the functionality associated with call screening is phenomenal. If you want to avoid the calls from telemarketers that occur at all hours of the day (read morning, evening, and night calls), you should buy this product. If you install this phone and activate its features, you will restore your home's serene environment. This is also a great gift idea. If anything should happen to this phone, I would actively seek to purchase the same model or its successor.

    Telephone blocking

    This is my best purchase ever!!!! You have to program you phone with people that you will accept calls from and I put in about 24. If the phone number is not in the directory the phone will screen the caller and ask for them to say their name. If they don't the call will not go thru YEAH!!!! If the say their name you have to press the number one to answer the call. Let's just say after two attempts from some 800 # I have received no more calls YEAH AGAIN. Best phone blocking ever.

    Good features, a bit complicated to use

    This set satisfies my needs and works as advertised, My only complaint is that, like do many products these days, it has too many features and it is not immediately obvious how to use some of them. The call blocking function is particularly desirable, but also particularly complicated. Also, being able to invoke all functions from the hand sets as well as the base unit is a very good feature, but the fact that the layout of functions is different in the two environments gets in the way. On the whole, I judge the product on the positive side..

    An excellent replacement for my mother's phone

    Despite technological advances, my mother has always insisted on having a landline phone, with a corded base and cordless extensions. When her previous system began malfunctioning, it became obvious that a new system was needed, and the AT&T CL84207 system has proven to be the right replacement! It has worked beautifully, and my mother has had no problems receiving (or making) calls. This is a winner!

    great screening system !! i have a landline for fax machine. Solicitors have the phone ringing and i have to hear answering machine ALL day,, NOT anymore. it gives a partial ring... they record their name. you then get ringing IF THEY RECORDED name and NOT a computer. Instructions great and easy to use. and you CAN program numbers easily in future so they can avoid having to record their name over and over if you speak to them a lot on landline. LOVE IT

    This was a gift for my Mom who was getting tons of spams calls day and night and this phone is suppose to block up to 1,000 numbers. It’s been just a few weeks but my mom is getting use to using the phone and has said that the spam calls have cut down a little so waiting to see if it’s going to help stop them all together and if it does considering getting o e for myself.

    The phone has more options than what we need, but it works good. My wife uses this for her work phone. The multiple handsets are nice and the speakerphone at the base is good. Would be nice to silence the other handset ringers and the call announcement. Even at the lowest volume they still ring, so when my wife is traveling I remove the batteries so I don't hear it ring. Otherwise it has good quality sound big display that is easy to read.

    Great way to block unwanted calls from a landline!

    This phone has a huge CID screen, allows you to sort calls into allow, directory, or blocked. It will announce calls coming in and let you know when a blocked number tries to call without ringing. It has a great speaker feature and will allow you to block incoming calls without answering the phone, holding up to 1,000 blocked numbers. This has made our lives so much easier since we started using it.

    I love my AT&T phone. I was harrassed by hackers constantly but now once the phone recognizes that it has previously been blocked by me, it now automatically blocks the c all and harrah a lot less hacker calls. I wholeheartedly recommend this phone. It has a base set plus two more handsets so I can place them anywhere around the house.

    Good quality system, but difficult to setup

    Takes a while to learn how to program the Directory, Blocks and Allows. With the Blocking turned on, friends were getting cut off after two rings, since they were not programmed into the system. I have found it necessary to turn off the blocking system until I think I have almost everyone properly coded. Everything is getting easier and the sound is of good quality. ,

    I've had a dozen plus answering machines over the years but this one not only does an outstanding job, it functions as a base for three other remote phones elsewhere in the house. All of which can access the base features and menu as well as intercom each other. The range is excellent. The quality of messaging in and out is good and it is reasonably priced!

    Bought this for the office. Features are just ok. Material quality of the phone is poor. Wiped dust off the screen on the base unit once with a soft towel and there are now a ton of scratches in it (very thin cheap plastic. Tried a different cloth but just made it worse.Looks very bad now.

    I purchased this for my parents so that they would always have a handset connected to the phone as they were always losing their portable handsets. The sound on the phone is excellent, the display of the incoming numbers is clear. This phone has improved their safety as they will always have a phone available to call out for emergencies
