    seems to be a great phone in terms of sound quality and multiple speakerphones (base & handset) ...you can walk around on conference calls with the handset speaker on and muted ... has an answering system, which I don't use ... has an intercom feature between the base and the handset, which I don't use (may be appropriate in a big house) ... has a directory for saving numbers and speed dialing ... has a hold button for putting one line on hold while you answer the other ... has a flash button for conferencing and accepting another incoming call ... has a redial button on the menu screen ... if you have a message waiting with your service provider's voice mail system, an icon appears in the menu screen ... the only thing I don't like (which may be asking too much) is the menu screen on the base and the handset only light up when you press the menu button ... if you have a voice mail message waiting with your service provider's system an icon appears on the dark screen but ... you could go hours or a day before thinking to check for messages ... (not good for looking responsive to communications) ... my old set had a light that would light up and blink if there was a message waiting ... guess I got used to that ... all in all though ... the phone has all the bells and whistles ... great phone for the money!

    I had to replace an old 2 line Radio Shack digital phone, and this was the only one I thought would do the job after searching numerous web sites. So far, so good. Takes a little while to get used to a newer 2 line phone system, but this one seems to work really good. Can get messages from anywhere, after setting things up, but have not had any need to add any additional hand sets....yet! Came with one handset only. Recommend for any small business with 2 phone lines with Internet connection on 1 line coming in. Good luck!

    Once I received this new phone system, took a little while to review the operation manual, and get it set up, but now that I have it up and functioning it is doing a Good Job of answering calls when no one is available. Still need to make some final adjustments to the many functions it is capable of doing, but am very pleased with this purchase. It replaced an older Radio Shack 2 line telephone answering system. Glad I could find one that wasn't an arm and a leg in cost factors, and works good. Thanks!

    Poor Quality

    I really wanted to like this phone. It seemed to have a lot of great functions but overall it was poor quality. It started to be really static-y a few weeks after I plugged it in. When pressing the buttons, the beep would delay and there was an echo. I tried to return it but because it had been more than two weeks, I was not able to. I was told that my only option is to bring it to a BestBuy store and turn in the warranty. I'm disappointed and it was a waste of money.

    Does the job

    The phones work well and the quality of sound is fine. Picking up messages from mailbox 1 (for line 1) and mailbox 2 (for line 2) is easy and with one touch. Also deleting/skipping through messages is easy. I only wish there were a couple more mailboxes per line. Reviewing caller ID and missed calls is a little cumbersome, but I'm sure it'll seem easier after I've used the phone functions more often. I thought the extra handsets were included with the purchase of this phone, but they are not. I purchased 2 more handsets separately. Both lines work on the handsets when plugged into any electrical outlet.

    Crystal clear reception on speaker phone and base speaker, even w/ volume on low settings. Many phones no longer come w/ dial-in base, so phone was selected for this reason. Attractive appearance, Long battery life. I have no need for internal voice mail, but it took one button click to disable (first thing I did). The function might be useful for shared phones. Con: Software somewhat complicated and difficult to program.

    I purchased this 2-Line item because it said, 3 handsets included. When I received it, it only had the one. Went to Best Buy to get the missing handsets and was told that if you clicked on the item 'Whats included' does not mention any additional handsets so it was my fault but they were willing replace it with a Single line phone that comes with 2 additional handsets. I accepted as I needed something immediately.

    Had to replace an old 2 line desk phone and decided to buy the Vtech. Bought this phone for the wireless handset. The range on this phone appears good. I have found two items that kind of bother me. The keys on the handset are a little more difficult to use and callers have told me that they have trouble hearing me when I'm using the speaker on the base. 2 line phones are limited and overall this seems to be a good phone.

    a so-so cordless phone

    I must have higher standards for the sound quality of a telephone than other reviewers, because I don't find that this phone is particularly good. Some calls and many messages have a crackly, unclear quality. I also find the feel of pressing the keypad buttons is less than ideal. I miss my old corded phone, but needed one with two lines, so had to switch. I'm rather disappointed in this Vtech phone, but for the time being will live with it.

    This 2-line phone system is great for a small office setting. It has more than sufficient time for recording a message on missed calls. Each line has it's own mailbox. Speaker button makes it great for hands free talking. The handsets also have a jack if you want to use a headset. Sound is crisp and clear when talking on either line. You can add quite a few handsets to it, I believe up to 12. Great phone for the price!

    Had to replace my old 2 line phone system. I've had Vtech phones before, so I was familiar with them, This system is easy to set up and easy to program. I like the fact that I can set up the answering machine with a different message for each line, and I can listen to, and save or delete messages from the handset! This system has more options than my old one, at a much more affordable price!

    The initial installation and hookup of this 2 line system with the 5 stations I added was really very easy. The whole system works very well and I have had no issues whatsoever since I installed a few months ago. The only improvement I'd like to see is the backlighting of the line indicator keys and the off key, otherwise 5 stars.

    I chose this device because it allowed me to have the input of two lines, but when I turned on it I was surprised with the amount of functions it has (Speakerphone on base and cordless phone, mailbox and both lines, etc.). Simple to use and far beyond my expectations.

    This phone is everything that we needed at the work. It has 2 lines for the price of most of the other brands one line phone. So far in the month we have been using it, there have been no problems and the sound quality is crystal clear. No complaints

    We purchased our first VTech system 15 years ago. The phones were actually more expensive then. After 15 years we felt it was realistic to buy Vtech for our new home. This system is great for a larger homes because it supports up to 10 phones and 2 phone lines. The system is user friendly and well made too.

    Does everything that I need; a two-line phone with attached answering machine. Sound is clear and it's nice to find a cordless phone with these attributes for a good price. Getting to set separate answering machine messages for each line is a nice touch as well. Recommended.

    We purchased this item 2 years ago and it has been a great buy. It has all the necessary options for use in a small business or home atmosphere. It works very well. We purchased it because it is a 2 phone line system and has 2 mail boxes. We have 6 additional extension phones that we use with it.

    Although initially reluctant to purchase a 'used' phone system for our office, after reading reviews and getting warranty it turned out to be a great deal/bargain and we are very pleased with the phone equipment. Absolutely we made a good decision in this purchase.

    Trying to find a 2 line cordless with only one hand set is like looking for a set of hens teeth!! Works great, crystal clear. Has more features than we need, easy to disable what you don't need. I will be purchasing another.

    We needed a second line in the house but refused to have multiple phones all over the house. This was a great solution. We were able to set it up so that each line had a distinct ring to let us know which line is ringing, plus the display lets you know.
