5-0 out of 5 stars Works pretty well. Good for the price.
I have used it for quite a while. The answering machine works pretty well. With caller id and call waitingfeautres it's pretty good buy for a low price.

2-0 out of 5 stars Lousy Sound Quality
I bought this phone 2 weeks ago at wallyworld...it has nice features and is pretty easy to figure out how to set it up, but the sound quality is terrible..sounds very fuzzy ...people i talk to say it sounds real good at their end...but at my end i couldnt make out what they were saying....needless to say...." back it goes "

2-0 out of 5 stars Its just ok
There is alot of background noise even when I switch channels.It would be ok for a back up phone if needed.I had a different Vtech phone for many years until I had to finally replace it.I should have got the same one.Don't waste your money, get a better grade of phone.

5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT MINI-MACHINE
WHY I SAY THAT IT IS EXCELLENCT MINI-MACHINE? BECAUSE IT IS.
IT HAS ALL THE REQUIRED FEATURES...e.g. DIGITAL ANSWERING WITH 3 MAIL BOXES DEVICE, CALLER ID, ENOUGH CLEARITY IN VOICE AMONG THE 900 MHZ PHONES AND FOR THIS PRICE, EXCELLENT DESIGN, WALL MOUNTING, HANDS FREE OPTION WITH THE EAR PHONE...IN SHORT COOL PHONE.

1-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre, but functional
I initially went to purchase an answering machine but when I went to a store this unit was the same price so i purchased this instead.The phone and the machine are very simple to use.But the quality of this item is pretty poor.It does what it's supposed to do, but the sound quality of both the machine and phone isn't wonderful.And the product itself just looks cheaply made.You basically get what you pay for in this instance. ...

Product Description

Sony SPP-SS965 telephone features High Power Digital Spread Spectrum technology for superior range and interference reduction. Its 900MHz band starts with low interference because it's less crowded than conventional 43-49MHz band. The Digital Spread Spectrum technology provides up to about 100 times more output than other 900MHz systems; so you can carry your cordless phone further-and still carry on a conversation. The Jog Dial feature is used for one-finger access to directory dialing numbers and Caller ID memories; simply push the dial and jog up and down to find the entry you're looking for; push the dial again to dial the number! Dual Backlit LCD Displays (on handset and base) allow you to easily see Caller ID and other information even in a dimly lit situation. Caller ID with Call Waiting allows you to screen the phone number and name of an incoming second call while you talk on the first. A 50-number directory dialing gives quick access to a broad range of frequently dialed numbers; for easy reference, each phone number is identified by the person's name. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Great sound, for the short time the battery lasts....
I am a dedicated Sony consumer, so when I bought a digital cordless, naturally I bought Sony.Unfortunately, Sony has frankly **[been bad]** on one of the most important features of this phone - the battery.They obviously cut corners in this one area to add more trinkets to the phone.Which are great - caller id on the base and the handset, scrolling address book on the handset, speed dial memory, speaker phone, etc.; but, if the battery is dead after using the phone for an hour, then what use is the features!I'm not a phone junkie, in fact I hate being on the phone, but I work at home and end up on some long calls which halfway through get cut off and I have to switch to my corded phone across the house from my office.Bummer Sony!I've seen the same complaint on several other Sony cordless phones as well, so maybe I would suggest checking out another brand!

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it!
After doing a ton of research I decided on this phone.It had all the features I needed & I've had only good luck with Sony products.Unfortunately, the phone I received constantly cut out from the first timeI used it & had to be sent in for repair to Sony.Sony sent me a brandnew one which ended up having the same irritating problem.Amazon gladlyrefunded my $$.

3-0 out of 5 stars Is it me or is it Sony?
The features of this phone are great for the price. This is my 2nd sony 900 mgz phone. You guys know all the good features, let me tell you the bad, the ones that are making me return this unit. The worst thing of all,drives me crazy is when I talk on the phone, I hear my own voice sort ofringing in the speaker. Another reviewee described it as "tinny."I suppose that's a great way to describe this effect. It's so annoying thatI had to unplug this phone. Also, others have griped about this also, whydoes the base unit's caller ID display have to be continuously illuminated?How annoying. Also, what's the point of having caller ID on the handset ifit does not light up during a call? That's useless in dim rooms or atnight. All in all, maybe some people can deal with these issues, but forme, I would rather spend more money and get a better phone. Like I said,this is my 2nd sony phone and my last one never had these problems.

1-0 out of 5 stars Caveat emptor!(Don't buy this phone)
I own a lot of Sony stuff and usually I'm really impressed with their quality and performance, but this phone is a dog.

Functionally it's great.Very clear sound, excellent range, useful autodial, caller ID onthe handset ... nice.

But practically it sucks.There's no batteryindicator so you can't tell if how much life it has left.Now, thatshouldn't be a problem with the advertised lifetime of the battery (severaldays on standby, hours worth of talk time).I figured you could put it onthe stand every night and you'll be fine, right?

Nope.Talk time on thisthing is under an hour fully-charged and, when the battery goes, it justshuts off.No warning at all.And if you've had the thing off the standfor a day or so the talk time is *maybe* 15 minutes.It has cut out on mywife so often that she really hates using it.

This is the worst phoneI've ever owned.If I could return it, I would.I can't even in goodconscience give it away, so I may smash it to pieces with a hammer so thatno one else has to be subjected to it.

My wife was looking atreplacements recently and the store clerk said that they got so many ofthese phones returned that they won't carry them any more.Amazon islisting it as out-of-stock, but I hope they've pulled it completely.

Takemy word for it: Don't buy this phone!And, if you're from Sony, fire theentire design team.(It really is THAT bad.)

5-0 out of 5 stars i looked for a decent phone forever & finally found one.
first it was an escort phone, then it was an at&t, and now it's a sony. and i am finally happy. this phone is great. sound quality, battery life, design & features are all tops. in particular, i like the jogdial feature. very nice. the price on amazon was the clincher. i couldn'tfind it anywhere else even close to theirs. and on the subject of price...the only things that seemed intriguing (siemens or that ugly panasonic)were way too expensive. i couldn't justify the added $$$. and now that ihave the darn thing, i couldn't be happier. ...

Amazon.com Review

The IBM 4900 four-line cordless phone offers DSS clarity and range,caller ID, and support for phone systems that handle up to 12 extensions, makingit ideal for a small-office environment. It also functions well as a stand-alonesingle unit.

Unlike systems in which a dedicated base station and extensionhandsets are packaged and sold separately (such as Brother's CTS-400 cordlessphone system), the IBM 4900 is geared to function more as a stand-alone cordlessphone, and it does indeed work well as a single unit. The IBM 4900 alsointerfaces with phone systems that have up to 12 extensions. The emphasis onsingle-unit design has, however, resulted in reduced range and less line-of- sight coverage compared to systems with a dedicated base station and multipleextension handsets. Nevertheless, in our tests, we found the coverage adequatefor most office environments.

The IBM 4900 features a 24-number speed dialmemory, as well as a caller ID display. Such features as 12 one-touch intercombuttons and call privacy will please small-business employees. Our onlycomplaint was with the absence of a fast-charging feature, as the ni-cad batteryrequires more than three hours to charge.

With its digital spread spectrumtechnology, caller ID, and support for larger phone systems, the IBM 4900 four- line cordless phone should satisfy the general telephone needs of your home orsmall but growing office. --John Frederick Moore

Pros:

  • Good overall performance as a stand-alone unit
  • One-touch intercom buttons

Cons:

  • No fast-charging feature
  • Reduced line-of-sight coverage in multistation environments

2-0 out of 5 stars Horrible phone
I have this phone and have purchased about 8 of the corded version (IBM 412CID) over time as one by one they have failed.Here are the problems:

(1) After about a year, buttons -- like "hold", "line 1", etc. --start to go dead on the phone.

(2) There is something strange about the electronics because occasionally, for no apparent reason, the telephone will pick up on speakerphone, so that you find a dialtone blaring into an empty room.

(3) Sometimes the cordless version will insist it has a low battery even though the battery is fully charged.There is an arcane procedure in the manual to fix this.(This may account for the other reviewers' comment about dead batteries.)

(4) Generally, it is very hard to use and program.You have to punch in an amazing number of codes to do simple things like changing the ringer.

(5) The phone is stupid about basic things link disconnecting if you hang up -- you have to push "End" or it stays connected even on the cradle, and if you put someone on hold and pick up in another room, the original phone will keep ringing to remind you that someone was once on hold.

3-0 out of 5 stars Where are the phones designed for 4 line home offices?
I've read all five reviews.I've been looking for a well designed, affordable and reliable 4 line phone for over a year!I think I'm going to pass on the IBM 900 MHz Cordless, not only because of the problems identified but also because I, like some other reviewers, already have one four line phone (purchased as a make do strategy until I could find a phone more to my liking).I'm struck by the lack of variety and the extremely small number of manufacturers that offer 4 line cordless phones. I also find it amazing that features I've come to take for granted on l and 2 line phones (lighted displays, blinking lines, etc., seem to be lacking on the few 4 line cordless I've reviewed.If anyone knows of other brands, please let us know.

1-0 out of 5 stars Battery problems
I ordered one through Amazon.com, but when I received it I couldn't charge the battery (left it there for 15 hours). Then I returned it and asked for another one. Amazon.com was nice enough to send me another one 2nd day delivery at no charge, but UPS was not good enough and delivered the item to me after 7 working days!!! The new one has exactly the same problem. The handset is DEAD. The battery is not charging at all and it seems this IBM-4900 caused me enough problems to the point where I think I will return this one; go to an electronic shop and will pay double but I WONN'T BUY IBM again!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Can't tell which line is ringing on handset
I just discovered a big problem for me, after having the phone company come and install more jacks for this phone.I had two 4 line IBM-412CD phones, and encountered the same problem as the last reviewer... if you picked up on a line, using another make of phone, your main/base phone would keep reminding you that it was on hold, even if the call had gone away from the other phone.Now that I have the cordless IBM, I can't tell what line is ringing... there are no indicator lights on the handset to tell me.I answer some lines one way (business) and others just "hello" (home line) and now I don't know how to answer the phone when the handset rings and I'm not near the base phone to see.Really irritating, and I'm stuck, since these phones are not compatible with other makes.Thanks, IBM.(not)

3-0 out of 5 stars No luck with headset; phone not compatible with other mfgrs.
I purchased this phone to use it with a headset.But when I walk around the house, the party I'm talking to always hears some sort of noise due to the phone or headset chord rubbing agains this or that.Maybe I had a bum headset or phone.But the clincher for me was this phone is not compatible with other mfgrs.I have some phones mfgrd by VTech & daily heard random ringings & beeps from the IBM phone.I called the mfgr (TT Systems or something like that is the mfgr, IBM is just the name on the phone), TT said this 4-line phone can not be mixed and matched with other mfgrs. Well, I don't want to toss out my existing V-Tech phones.So I'm getting (2) additional V-Tech phones for my home office.My situation is I have 2 lines for work & 2 lines for home; and want all 4 lines in my office.By the way if you want a chordless phone with headset I definitely recommend looking at V-Tech, we've had 2 of their phones and their the best chordless I've found.Other than that the IBM is loaded with features (4 line, speakerphone, DND, Caller ID, Mute, Redial, Transfer, Paging, Conference, Intercom, mute) that V Tech didn't offer.If you are in a position to use one mfgr for all your phones; and if the chordless headset problems are just a fluke; or you don't want a headset; I would recommend considering the IBM. Also for Telecom novices like me, if you call the phone company to do the wiring, there are 3 jacks in this phone, L1/L2, L3/L4, and Data.So in my home office the phone company set up 2 wall jacks, L1/L2, and L3/L4...I think the wall jacks called RJ14 wall jacks instead of the standard RJ11. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Nothing but problems, No more Panasonic at home.
I have had such a horrible experience with this Panasonic phone I REFUSE to buy another telephone made by Panasonic. "Dropout King" is right, if you want your conversations interupted with faulty equipment use this phone. The buttons on the handset fail with use. Calling long distance is hard when the "1" button does not work. The answering machine is difficult, if not impossible to use with no backlight to the number of messages and having to reverse your way thru older messages. Finally, the base has given up charging the handset, so our phone is dead...

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
The features are okay, but it suffers from two main performance problems:

--Volume is too low on the caller's side, and there's no way to improve it. They simply have a hard time hearing you.

--Range is poor, compared to other 900mhz digitals, and it suffers from dropout, up to a second or two, even when close to the basestation.

1-0 out of 5 stars No more Panasonic at home
I've had in the past excelent experience with my Panasonic cordless phones, but not this time. I payed the price of this...phone because of the quality I expected, but PLEASE, dont make the same mistake, this phone has very poor quality.

For a few weeks everything was ok, now, the second line has no audio, line one, can suddenly hang up, and the dialing pad dials several numbers at the same touch...

1-0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this phone
I have had this phone for 1 1/2 years. I have to replace it.It has always been a disappointment to me.The dial pad on the phone does not work now. Many of the numbers stick when dialing. I can't stand it anymore and am throwing it in the trash.No more Panasonic for me. Don't buy it.

1-0 out of 5 stars disappointing for the money
I got this phone a year and a half ago and have never been satisfied for what it costs.At first it just bothered me that you could hang up on someone ifyou held the phone by the caller ID.Then a few monts ago the #4 would not work.The only way for it to work was to press very hard and then it would come out twice.Now most of the keypad does not work right but the most annoying one is the talk button.I have to use a pen and push as hard as I can just to turn it off.Do not buy this phone it is a waste and customer service did not care either. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Junk Phone
Very cheap phone, horriable reception, poor quality. Worst AT&T phone ever

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I purchased this phone when Amazon. com was running arebate special--the phone's final price was ($$$). Well, the phone is worth about ($$$)! It does have some nice features such as digital spread and speed dial. Plus, the design is rather compact. However, the sound is not too clear and calls get dropped. Furthermore, this phone constantly caused my phone line to stop working (granted, I also had a computer and answering machine hooked up). After a few months, I decided to buy a Michael Graves phone from Target (also available through Amazon)--that phone works perfectly and my phone line is in tact!

1-0 out of 5 stars BAD PHONE
This phone was bad from the start. It had an ecoh sound and the range was only 50 feet before it started to have really bad audio. It refused to connect with the base often (BEEP BEEP). The power plug would spark when plugged in to the base. Then it would refuse to charge. I charged the battery manually for a while but now it won't come on at all, it just gives it's familiar "beep beep" error sound. I spent [alot of money] on this thing new and I'm [mad].

1-0 out of 5 stars 2 purchased 2 bad
I purchased 2 AT&T 900 Mhz DSS phones and was disappointed that after 2 months, both handsets were not communicating with the base unit.

The handsets establish an open connection and tie the line up, but I can't get a dial tone.Its nice to hear the phone ring, pick it up, and get nothing.I would stay clear of this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars cheap phone that works.
Well I got this phone at (store name) on sale for $. The price was right. It is cheaper than the old 9400 that I also have. The sound quality is very good. You have to turn the ringer on off by electronics but I have not found a good phone with a on off switch. I got mine for next to a computer. Well, none of them work well next to a computer. But for the price of this phone, it is a steal. The spectrum technology gives you a lot of freedom that other phones do not. I had tried a Bell South but it had to much noise. Uniden has the best record out there but how do you turn off the ringer?? Well, If you can not turn off the ringer the battery goes dead. Ok, this phone is very junky but is there a better phone out there? Read the book. They all say stay away from computers. Well, This one will work. Not perfect, but it works. ... Read more

BellSouth presents the MH9026, a simple phone with advanced technology that includes only the features you really need. First, you get 900 MHz digital spread spectrum technology. Instead of using a single narrow band to transmit signals, as standard digital and analog phones do, DSS phones spread their signal over a range of frequencies. The result is clearer sound with less interference, greater range, and more privacy than standard digital.

The 20-number speed dialing feature makes it easy to reach the people you call the most. A page/find button signals the handset, so you won't have to worry about misplacing it. In addition, digital security codes protect your phone communications from other nearby cordless handsets. A headset jack gives you complete hands-free convenience when used with an optional headset. This phone can be used on a desk or mounted on the wall. ... Read more

I have been the historical victim of over priced "neat looking" cordless phones that would not let me roam more than 8 ft from the base when my computer was on.My whole world changed when this phone ended up in my lap thanks to my engineering brother who was sick of me putting down the phone 20 times during a long distance call to go get something even though I was on a crdless phone.With this PANASONIC DSS phone, I am not only free to move around my apt, and my apt building but I can also roam about 2/3 of a block away in incredibly dense population without loosing the person on the other end.The sound, compared to everything else I was using, is clear, although it is probably not as wonderful as a land line but is that a big surprise?I think it is worth every penny.I am replacing all the phones at my folks place with this one-gigarange is overated.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
Well, like all other 900mhz DSS phones I've heard, this one has poor sound quality (I had reason to hope since I own one of Panasonic's excellent 900mhz analog phones). The sidetone isn't as bad as what I've heard in other 900 DSS phones, but it's still there and the sound isn't close to analog. I called my wife as a test, and she said it sound like I was talking in a box. Alas, for those of you wanting a phone with digital security that sounds good, I have no answer. The Panasonic 2.4gig phones sound good, but are apparently not fully secure as they transmit partially in analog... sigh.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great"no frills" phone
I've had this phone for about two weeks now, and so far, I love it.I've had cordless phones in the past with lots of extras like dual keypads and speaker-phones and I never used these features.I don't use caller ID and I have a perfectly good answering machine.All I wanted was a good quality cordless phone that couldn't be easily over heard by neighbors baby monitors.I got just that.This phone has incredible range, excelent sound quality, and great battery life. The DSS gives us peace of mind for security too.The only fault I can find with this phone is the speaker hole for listening.It's very small and is located high up on the handset.Beacause of this, it's easy to let the phone "ride up" while you're talking and it sounds as if the volume is dropping off.Just pay attention to how you hold this phone and you'll be very happy with it! ...

Product Description

Panasonic - a name that is synonymous with innovation and quality - leads the revolution in cordless phone technology to provide outstanding performance, convenience, and style. When it comes to your communication needs, Panasonic is dedicated to creating a phone that makes communicating easier.The KX-TC1811 utilizes Digital Spread Spectrum technology to provide two important benefits for your home or home office: enhanced range and security. This phone transmits over the entire 900 MHz bandwidth, constantly changing frequencies to boost calling range, keeps your conversations clear and makes them very difficult for outside parties to monitor. The Digital Duplex speakerphone function lets multiple parties take part in the same conversation, while it gives single users the benefit of hands-free operation. Digital circuitry helps reduce echo and dropout effects (common to conventional speakerphones) for more natural-sounding conversations. Keypads are available on both the base and the handset, so you can dial from either one. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Good phone ...but battery fails
I love the phone and its features, but the battery fails on you quite often.After overnight charging, it won't last for 3 minutes.After a few days of this, the battery completely fails.We ended up getting a new phone

4-0 out of 5 stars Overall, very pleased
I appreciate all the comments on this review board. They were a big help to me in deciding which phone to buy.

This phone works very well and we are pleased with the purchase. We use the phone as our primary home phone and also during the day for a home office. I've noticed slightly different tonality compared to our other phones, but the reception is clear throughout the house and in the yard. The features I've used so far have been easy to use.

The only drawbacks so far have been (1) the lack of a mute button - particularly when using the speaker phone; (2) the ringer can't be turned completely off; and (3) making use of some of the phone features seems a bit complicated, so I haven't bothered.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor quality
I have had this phone for several months and found it to be of very poor quality. The phone regullary just cuts out where I cant hear the person on the other side, and have to change channels. There is always a hissing noise on the phone and very often crackling in the background. I have two different phones of this model and have the same problem with both of them. The phones also say out of range alot, even though they are only 2 feet from the base. I advise against this phone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality phone
This is a great phone!The sound is crisp and clear and the quality of construction is top notch.I bought two of these to replace aging VTech phones and I'm glad I did.I'm also going to order a third one for the bedroom.You can't miss with this phone. ... Read more

I bought one in October and am now searching for another phone. There are problems when someone calls, it disconnects after two rings and there's a lot of static.

1-0 out of 5 stars Panasonic Big Button Phone
I bought this product for my father who is going blind from macular degeneration.I thought the big buttons would be easy to use.They were, however the phone lacks the ability to be programed for numbers that he uses regularly.

Well, I had high hopes that this would be a simple, easy to use, reliable, good quality phone . . .

WRONG!It was dead and hopelessly so.I called Panasonic's service number and they offered a few obvious suggestions and I followed all of the troubleshooting tips in the instruction flyer that came with the oh-so-dead phone.No luck!I'm trying again and have a replacement (same model) on order. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Battery won't hold a charge
One the unit I bought, the battery, after 1 year of light use, will not hold a charge of more than 15 minutes (supposed to be many hours)

2-0 out of 5 stars Convenient, but low headset volume and short battery life
The phone is very convenient for the user; especially used on a belt with a headset.However, remote users complained of low, distant sound.Most disappointingly, the battery life has deteriorated quickly, and after a year it is nearly unusable.

4-0 out of 5 stars Follow the directions on the unit (not like me)
Good user interface, very sturdy, well built. Voice quality is as good as cordless phones get, though they still are not as good as an average land line phone. The three line LCD displays complete Caller ID info without scrolling.

Be Fair Warned !!

We made the mistake of returning the remote unit to the base after every call, which they tell you with a big sticker, not to do until the recharge light comes on. We are now down to 10 to 15 minutes of total talk time before recharging. Don't do what we did, follow the directions and fight the urge to return the remote unit to its base after a call is completed.

2-0 out of 5 stars 8 Months old and already dying!
I've never written a poor review for a product so I'm reluctant, but given that the phone is so new and is now having so much trouble, I figure I'd better warn other consumers.Also I bought this phone primarily because of customer comments here, so I might as well share this experience.

While it could be that I just managed to get a lemon, the fact that this product worked beautifully for six months leads me to think otherwise.Usually lemons never work.For six months this phone was great, but about a month ago the LCD screen's contrast got rather dark and unfixable making the Caller ID and directory hard to read.

Now the phone has begun randomly cutting out--it will stay connected to the party with whom I'm speaking, but it goes dead for a few seconds and neither party can hear the other.It has also started crackling at random.I try switching channels, but to no avail.

The phone was great when it worked properly.Given its longevity and its price ... I would strongly recommend checking out a different phone.

1-0 out of 5 stars Elementary Test
This isgreat phone till you are on a receiving end speaking to someone who is using it. The sound is very poor. As other people noticed it sounds as if you are in a cave. Often people using the phone are nor aware of it. I think it is an essential element of a phone to transmit a decent sound. This phone fails this elementary test. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Hard to find combination of features
It was the particular combination of features that sold me on this phone. So many I looked at had some, but not all of the features I needed. Here is my list: dual keypad (so I can make a phone call when the handset is lost), digital duplex speakerphone (doesn't mute the other party when you're talking), the voicemail waiting indicator light, caller ID, and lighted keypad. The fact that I can wander half way down the street and still get phone calls doesn't hurt either. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars One of the few that will page you
I've had mine for probably a couple of years now and the LCD display has sections that are unreadable.I'm trying to find a replacement, but for some reason, no one has a key feature that I depend on with this answering machine: Pager Call.When someone leaves a message, it can call a pager (which I have programmed to call my cell phone).I'm about to go buy a couple used ones to keep that feature without having to buy something expensive.

It has good quality recording, and the phone handset has louder volume than the vtech 2.4ghz cordless phones I use (for the 2-line capability), but being analog, there is occasional static.

The display problem is really the only downside to it...

3-0 out of 5 stars It's an "OK" phone.
This phone was pretty expensive when I bought it several years ago at Best Buy. I had to laugh when I saw it being offered for under $20 here. (A wry laugh, that is).Overall, the phone has worked well for me. All of its features work and they have come in handy for me. On the downside, its weak points are the receiver volume is weak and the battery/recharging system has problems.I just go into a quieter room if I can't hear the caller well enough. It isn't really a problem. I use a headset with the receiver for hands-free operation without a problem.I am still using the original battery. I think the key to good battery use is to NOT keep the battery on the charger all the time. Charge the battery when the display indicates, otherwise keep it off the charger. Occasionally, let the battery totally run itself down, then charge it back up. (My cellphone battery charger has a Discharge button on it for just this purpose). For the last 6 months or so, my Panasonic cordless phone battery has been acting erratically. Sometimes, it will run for days just fine or a day, then cut the phone off with no warning at all. I used to get a warning beep. Fortunately, if I can get to my corded phone the other party is still connected. It's probably time to replace my cordless phone battery.That's how I got here. I read the other reviews and thought I would express mine. In my opinion, if I could get this phone for $20 NEW, it would be a steal.

1-0 out of 5 stars Lousy Phone from a lousy company
Panasonic products seem to be engineered to start failing exactly after the 1 year warranty. First, this phone started losing battery power after about 30 minutes of talking. Changing batteries didn't help. A couple of months later, the charging has completely stopped.

Incidentally, my Panasonic DVD player failed exactly 1 year 3 months after I bought it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Panacrapic
This phone was a disaster from purchase. Problem No.1: The voice of the incoming caller frequently cannot attain suitable volume for even minimal intelligibility. The first week of purchase I spent approximately 6 frustrating hours (on a neighbor's phone) with Panasonic's "customer service" dept., trying to discern & alleviate the problem. Finally (this is about 10 daysafterpurchase), I said I wanted to return the phone in exchange for a new one.Therep du jour refused, telling me my onlyoption was to sendthe phone back to the company and wait6 to 8 weeks for repairs to be completed.
Problem No. 2: Panasonic [is bad]. I sent a letter to the president of Panasonic complaining about the company'scustomer-hostile return policy:Obviously, I would have to buy a new phone while I waited the six weeks for Panasonic to squeeze, prod, and send back its lemon. No one ever responded in any form.
Problem No. 3: Constant, ongoing, battery failures.From the start, the battery could only tolerate10 to 20 minutes of conversation, and the whole phone goes dead after 30 minutes. I ALWAYS keep the headset nestled in the station, so it is not being drained when not in use. I bought a brand new battery and charged it up: Same exact problem. I'm going back to a rotary, if I can find one...

2-0 out of 5 stars I bought it because it was a Panasonic, but returned it.
My old Panasonic 900MHz phone is the best cordless phone that I've ever used. However, I wanted to upgrade in order to get the caller ID, a headset jack, and phone directory features.

I didn't see any reason to get a 2.4 GHz phone, since clearly my 900 Mhz (analog) phone worked perfectly for my application, so I chose the 900 MHz DSS KXTC1871. Feature wise, it had everything that I could want in a phone.

However...:

1) The phone directory was uncomfortably slow... moving from entry to entry took way longer than it does in my cell phone.

2) People on the other end of the phone could immediately notice that I was on a new phone.The voice quality on my end seemed fine, but they complained.

3) The phone would sometimes cut out and beep at me, but I had no idea why and was always within 15 feet of the base station.

To it's credit, I was impressed with the follow features:

1) The speakerphone was good, meaning voice quality was very acceptable.

2) The answering machine was great. No complaints whatsoever.

I don't think it's impossible to make a perfect home phone. There's nothing special about cordless phone technology these days, and they should be at least as useful as my trusty Nokia cell phone and sound as good as my *old* Panasonic 900 MHz phone. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Short life span!
I've owned this phone for a little more than a year.At first I was very satisfied not only with the features, but also with the voice quality.Unfortunately, by now the phone is barely usable and I am already looking for a replacement.

First, the battery life was adequate for nearly the first year.I would get about 4 hours of talk time, which was okay.However, the standby time was not very good... If I left home for a weekend, the phone would inevitably be dead upon my return.However, after 1 year, the battery life has shortened significantly to about 2 hours of talk time.The indicator is also of very little use because it will go from 2 out of 3 bars to dead.

Secondly, the main reason I am replacing this phone (I could always buy a replacement battery) is that the phone randomly cuts out all the time.At first I thought it might be interference from my home wireless network, but I noticed this was also a common complaint from other users.Frankly, the frequent dead silences are too great of an annoyance for me and for the people I am talking to.

If this phone is still available for purchase, I would recommend against it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good sound with bad usability
I really wanted to like this phone.It has wall mount, digital spread spectrum, excellent sound quality, a comfortable handset, and a good feature list.After two days, I can't stand using it anymore.
- You can't dial the phone from the base if you are using the handset - defeats the whole purpose of multiple keypads.
- The caller ID won't stop blinking without picking up the handset and going through multiple menu items.
- The phone won't let you step through the names in the stored directory any faster than one per second.
- Speed dial only works on the base, not the handset.
- Speed dial and the stored directory don't work together.
- Transferring calls between the speaker phone and the handset is a tedious, noisy operation.
- No mute button.
- Too much loud beeping that you can't turn off.
In short - if you aren't a phone power user, don't pay for the extra features on this phone.If you are a power user, find a phone designed by someone with common sense.I'm still looking.

3-0 out of 5 stars handset volume a little too low
the volume on the handset is too low, especially when using a headset.Too bad because it would be a great phone.It has great range.

3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty darn good, with a few exceptions
Yes, the lack of mute button is annoying.

I also like to turn off my ringer at night, and instead of having a switch on the phone (like my previous Panasonic cordless) you have to wade through several menus, while the thing beeps at you loudly for each menu item/choice.When my wife is sleeping while I try to set this... well, it's sort of against the whole *point* of turning the ringer off.

The other annoying thing I find is the "Voicemail indicator" (blinking light), while a very nice feature, often won't go off after you've deleted your mailbox of voicemail (this is phone company type voicemail service - not built-in voicemail on the phone - which it doesn't have).And now, the thing is permanently on (blinking).I can't seem to get it to go away, even after unplugging the unit.Weird.

Other than that, this phone is very nice.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good all-round phone except for one major omission
This phone generally works well. The fast battery charging, caller-ID and sound quality are fine. Just one problem: there is no microphone mute! This seems to be an IMPORTANT, simple, feature lacking from most Panasonic phones. Why, I don't know. If I am in a conference call, and others are not easily heard, I have to turn the volume up to the max, and then the slightest sound (e.g. keyboard clicks) at my end engages the anti-microphony muting and I miss the next 10 second of their conversation! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Too bad there isn't a 0 star option
I purchased a Sony phone similar to this one.....just minus the answering machine. I thought since it was Sony it would be a great phone. Boy was I wrong. As another reviewer stated the channel surfing is the worst. I can be sitting right next to the base and the phone cuts off and surfs for another channel. Forget about moving your head once you find a channel. That will cause the phone to surf as well. Cordless is useless with Sony. Another thing that bothers me is there is no volume button for the ringing. I am about to have a baby and didn't need this until now. The phone rings terribly loud and since the baby will be in my room at the beginning it will definitely cause a problem. I love Sony but will never purchase a phone from them again. My cousin had a Sony phone which ended up in the garbage and I think mine is about to join hers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Battery dies quickly without much notice
Sony is usually a good name, but not with this phone.I've found the battery dies rather quickly.When you're on the phone when it dies, you only have 5 seconds to sprint to another phone.If I leave the phone out of the cradle during the day, it is dead when I come home from work.What's worse is you can't find replacement batteries at the store.Remote access to voicemail is painful too.

2-0 out of 5 stars average phone
I was really expecting a lot more when I bought this 6mos ago.No speaker phone on the main unit is a disadvantage.It does though have a great answering maching with three mailboxes.It also has a computerized greeting if you want that instead of your voice.Battery life is poor.I can go about 450 ft from my house before it cuts out but it gets a lot of static.One thing I hate for sure about it is the way it surfs for channels on its own.You could be on the phone and while you are talking you will here it cut off your conversation or your other partys conversation for about a second and then you have to repeat what you just said.This can be very annoying as you are walking through the house. If you sit still it doesnt do it.What is the point in a cordless phone then?I called Sony and it is no defect that is what it is suppose to do.I get lots of complaints that people cant hear me very well either.Havent figured that one out yet either.I am looking for a new phone now and hope I do a little better research. ...

Amazon.com Product Description

Sony's SPP-A968 900 MHz digital spread spectrum (DSS) cordless phone incorporates a digital answering system with three mailboxes that provides a full 20 minutes of message space. Thanks to features like full remote operation, three separate mailboxes, automatic time/date stamp, and memo recording, the machine functions as a complete message center for busy homes or small offices.

With subscription through your local service, you can access call waiting/caller ID information and return calls at the touch of a button, using the display-and-dial feature. The phone also offers Sony's jog dial, which lets you scroll through and select numbers from the 50-number speed-dial memory; three one-touch speed dial buttons also provide instant access for your most frequently-dialed numbers. Permanent flash memory stores speed-dial numbers and answering machine messages indefinitely, so don't fret about sudden power outages.

The handset utilizes a durable NiCD battery, which lasts up to six hours of talk time or 10 days of standby time before it needs a recharge--make sure to let it run all the way down to avoid memory effect.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not impressed
Have had this phone for a few years and hate the beeping message indicator.The worst problem we've had is that the microphone seems to be very week, prompting callers to say "what?" very often.(It's not the battery either.)

1-0 out of 5 stars Hate this phone!!
We loved our first Sony but have hated this phone from the day we bought it.The first annoyance is that it automatically (and constantly) searches for the channel with the most clear reception which results in constant moments of silence in your conversation as the phone switches.The other thing that totally drives us crazy is the answering machine.It has an incredibly annoying beep when there is a message - and there is no way to turn it off.Maybe some people need that so they remember to check but we do not!We don't answer the phone during dinner but are faced with the choice of getting up and listening to the message or listening to the continuous beeping during the rest of our meal.I also feel sorry for my poor animals having to listen to this high pitched beeping all day while we are out.The answering machine also talks to you which is very tedious.I can read the indicator, I don't need it to tell me every time I listen to my messages that "you have 2 new messages and new calls".It also does not allow you to delete messages without listening to them.So even if you are standing right there screening your calls, you still have to replay them to delete them.

5-0 out of 5 stars a great phone
I have one of these 968 phones and after being dropped, thrown by the kids, it still works and is just a little damaged and that's why I want to replace it. It was one of the best phones sony made, that's why they stopped making it! ... Read more
