    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Beyond my expectations!!!

    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.
