    Adequate if you only want two phones.

    I purchased this phone as my entry into connecting my cell-phones into a land-line phone. It did set up (though the blue-tooth signal is limited range in my home.) When purchasing I was assured by Best Buy salespeople - who are usually reasonably informed but apparently not about their phone system options - that additional handsets could be purchased. When attempting to do so in-store, I was first directed to a handset that was not compatible and brought it back, so this time I called V-Tech directly to purchase a handset and was told it was too "new a model" so I had to order through a store. VTech gave me a model number, which I ordered online through Best Buy, but unfortunately this (DS6501) is NOT compatible. So now, I have a second set of phones to return. In inquiring with Vtech yet again, I was given a different model # and again told I had to source that through a supplier. This time Best Buy did not show it online, and after 30 minutes of trying to connect with Best Buy by telephone, they do not have the handset. I have given up and will try to return the whole disaster and buy a Panasonic.

    Not for use with cell phones

    This VTech DS6621 says it is for use with cell phones, even perfect for cell-only families. Two problems. One, the answering machine in the base is designed to be used with landlines only, according to VTech technical service, and will not engage an incoming cell phone call under any circumstances -- including that cell-only family that does not have a landline to attach to the DS6621. The other, frequently the home base "un-pairs" itself with the cellphone. If you were not watching your cell phone when it happened, you would not know you are disconnected. Your cellphone would think it is still paired, and the base unit of the DS6621 still shows the cell line as active. Only when someone calls and you are with your cell phone and with the DS6621 base unit -- hearing one ring and the other one not ring -- would you know the DS6621 had unpaired you.

    LAN Lines Still Live

    Let's face it, only the older generation still has LAN Lines and I mean 50 years old and older. However, I upgraded my package with cable that gave me an extra perk of having a VOIP. Although, I don't use it often it's nice to have a hand held phone when your cell phone is dead or close to being without a battery charge. And the connection is clear vs breaking up and dead zones that you sometimes have in your home while on calls with your cell phone. It serves it's purpose. It does have caller ID, call forwarding and voice mail. Perfect for a split level home to. It's reasonably priced. The size is good to not too bulky so you can hide it away from guest if wanted.

    We purchased this item to have in our home so that we could hear when our cell phones rang. We don't have a landline we would often miss calls if our cell phones were on vibrate, on the charger in another room, or if we were upstairs and the phone was downstairs. We bought this and put one downstairs and one upstairs. Now, any time our phones ring, these phones ring, too! No more worrying about missing a call. Even my kids can answer the phone if they need and can't find my cell phone. Another great feature is that I can use this if my phone is on the charger. No more being chained to the wall charger!

    I bought these for my landline because I needed an answering machine since I removed voice mail from my phone service. This fits the bill and picks up messages. It also syncs up with my cell phone, but I haven’t figured that out yet. I do love the ability to block numbers. If I get a call, don’t recognize the number, and no message is left, I can block that number. It’s great quality for the price. Removing voice mail from my phone service more than paid for the cordless phones+answering machine.

    Definitely a best buy at price point

    Purchased this cordless phone with bluetooth capability on sale for $40.99 minus my $20 certificate (paid net $20.99+ taxes) and I couldn't be happier with it. It was easy to set up right out of the box, it walks you thru setting up the date and time to setting up your answering machine the second you turn it on. Connecting two cellphones were simple and basically the same for most bluetooth equipment in pairing. No dropped calls. No issues so far. For the net price I actually paid for it, it's a steal. And after owning it now, I'd likely recommend it at full price considering it's not as expensive as it's competitors (all things being equal).

    My sisters old answering machine was slowly starting not to answer calls allowing the phone to just ring. The new set is just a plug and play. We used the preprogramed recorded answer message and the operation was very easy for her to understand. This one operated very similar to the old machine. The extra units allow her to have the phone near-by at all times and even take it out into the yard (great range). I would definitely purchase it again.

    Phone works - Bluetooth connect disappoints...

    The phone works as any other landline unit. However, if you plan on getting this for the bluetooth feature, please consider other brands. During the 'linking' process with your phone, it gives-up and times-out too quickly. Then, ultimately fails to connect. Every time. In all of the online research, the manufacturer offers no REAL solution to this problem. Wish I would have heeded the advice of other reviewers PRIOR to purchase.
