    Good option for a wall mount phone

    Due to only one working phone jack and the layout at her apartment, we needed a wall telephone for my mother in law. This phone mounted neatly and securely and since it's corded, the phone (not answering machine) will work in a power outage. The additional handset is great for use in the living room since it only requires an electrical outlet and will provide her the mobility a cordless phone allows. The answering machine has a nice clear display and function although setup was trial and error since the instructions were vague at best. Overall, we're very pleased with the style and function of this phone.

    We needed a wall phone that was a wireless phone to carry out of the room. This phone has a corded phone on the base and a wireless remote phone that can be put anywhere in the house. The base can be put on the wall with an included adapter that does not make this phone stick out far from the wall the way other similar phones do. The phone has a good answering machine and both corded base and remote handset have decent sound quality. Also the remote handset can monitor the answering machine, be used to change the outgoing message, and be used to listen to messages.

    I purchased to replace another answering machine phone that worked fine but did not have all the features I wanted. The phones worked, but the answering machine would not operate properly. I contacted the manufacturer to see what the problem was, they said that it probably was because it conflicted with other phones in my home. I tried unplugging all of them and still the answering machine did not work properly. I gave up and retuned the item. My old answering machine worked fine, so went back to it.

    Have no problems with phone once set up...however set up was awful..somehow we changed language and instructions were of no help to change back. We tried calling company for help got a robot who asked for model number, we put in the number that was supposed to be model number and robot said not valid number. It was the model number listed on box paperwork etc. So no help as the call just ended. Luckily I figured it out.

    Purchased this phone for my new home and I love it. It's nice to have a land line for when cell service at my house is spotty. I keep the base phone in the office and the cordless in our bedroom so we can hear the phone ringing from every room in the house. I like that you can program your numbers into the phone and create your own phone book. This way when friends call "Ashley" pops up on the caller ID instead of "Hartford, CT"

    Terrific product helps me so much with my small at home business. I keep the corded phone on my desk in the office and the corded phone with me if I wander away from the office- of course I can use the built in answering machine but I like to personally answer as many incoming calls as possible. The built in phonebook very convenient. Good product! $50 still seemed a little high of a price in my opinion.

    Not many choices, and this is not it

    We needed a phone, and there weren't many choices at Best Buy this visit. Unfortunately, we ended up with this item. It is the simplest of phone's, and even at that, it's too difficult to record messages outgoing, and it's easily messages lost. Not a good choice, but too much trouble to return, or we would have.

    Inexpensive, but quality might reflect pric

    I like the features, I loved the price, and everything works well. That said, I think the sound quality is lacking. For me (and perhaps my hearing is starting to go) it is too "hollow, low-toned", for lack of better way to describe. Not crisp and clear and I have to ask people to repeat too often.
