      5-0 out of 5 stars It's great when they get it right!
      I've been looking for a high-quality multi-line office phone for several months, and have had a few bad experiences. It seemed that I got what I paid for, which was low-price, low-quality, and I just couldn't find a good solution for less than several hundred (or thousand)dollars.

      My criteria for selection (in no particular order) were: 1) 2 to 4 line support, 2) Speed dial buttons, 3) Caller ID/Call Waiting ID, 4) Headset support, 5) Adjustable volume for receiver (ability to make the caller sound louder), 6) Expandable (support for extensions that work together with each other), 7) Intercom between extensions, 8) Call Transfer, 9) Conference calling, 10) Speakerphone, 11) Line priority (which line is selected when you pick up to make a call).

      The GE 29488GE2 Corded Phone not only includes all of these features, but even more than I could have expected. My biggest pet peeve about phones is when you can't hear your caller, and you have no way to adjust the volume. With the GE phone, you just touch the Volume Up button while you're on the call, and the volume is increased. This isn't a "fake" or "placebo" feature. The voice of the caller is actually amplified, and you can increase it to levels that border on uncomfortably loud.

      The multi-line support (this one supports 4 lines), is integrated perfectly into the phone, and functions exactly as you might expect (definitely how I would expect). When the phone rings, you just pick up the handset, hit the Speaker button, or hit the Headset button (if you have a headset) to answer. You don't have to press the ringing line button first.

      Likewise, to make a call, you just pick up the handset, and an open line is selected. The Line Priority feature lets you set which line is automatically selected when you take the phone off the hook to make a call. This is very helpful to me, because I have the phone programmed to select my second line, rather than using my first line for outgoing calls.

      The phone has 16 speed dial/intercom buttons. Programming is a snap using the 4-line backlit LCD display. Each button can hold a dialed number and double as an intercom number. You can even program a button to use the numbers stored in other buttons to make calls. This is very handy when you have a calling card and need to dial several numbers before/after the actual number. You can program in your calling card and access numbers once into a button or two, and then reference those buttons in the dialing sequence you program into the remaining buttons. Even the length of pauses can be programmed.

      The Caller ID display has a very interesting feature that lets you program the phone not to save any "Unknown" or "Blocked" caller information in the Caller ID history.

      When you plug in a GE 29488GE2 phone, it immediately starts looking for other phones on your lines. Each phone can be identified by a programmable name and a station number, up to 16 phones.

      Each of the 4 lines can be set with independent ringing options, such as volume, tone and whether or not Caller ID information will be displayed for that line.

      You can also program the phone to automatically answer and go into Speakerphone mode when it is called via the intercom from another phone.

      The phone is powered by an A/C adapter, but also has a battery compartment for 3 AA batteries for Caller ID backup.

      It also has a data jack on the back that you can plug your fax or answering machine into, along with a switch that lets you select which of the 4 lines the device will access.

      All-in-all, this phone has the most features and functionality for the price. Its functionality is very well integrated and it operates predictably. It is easy to program.

      My only negative comments are: 1) It comes with two 2-line phone cords, but not any adapters to merge two separate lines into one cord. If you have two separate phone jacks on the wall, you'll need a 2-to-1 coupler for each set of 2 lines. 2) The instruction manual says you can only use one specific brand and model of headset, which you must order by phone from one vendor. This isn't terrible, though, because the headset is about $30 with shipping, but you should be prepared for this extra expense if you want a headset for the phone. 3) The manual gives great step-by-step programming and use instructions, but could spend a little more time explaining the features and what they may be used for.

      I've tried numerous multi-line cordless phones, too, and none of them had the features, functionality or quality of this corded phone. At this price, I can afford to have several of them spread throughout my office, and I don't need to worry about fussing with a cordless and all of its related problems. This phone has some weight to it, too, so you feel like you're getting a quality product.

      Bottom line is if you need or want a phone with these features, this is the phone for you.

      2-0 out of 5 stars Almost a good telephone
      Found all funtions of the phone to work ok. All volume levels were great and could be adjusted for headset, handset, and speaker. Design is great though display is a bit hard to see if phone is not propped up in the rear. The big disappointment is when putting a call on hold. My customer advised be that while on hold there is some type of ringing sound and the customer hears. This was a pain when I needed to put a 20 person conference call on hold. Everyone on the call heard the tones. My old IBM and my AT&T multiline phone don't have this problem.

      Next disappointment was technical support. I contacted them regarding the tones being heard while on hold and was advised that all I could do was remove all power, phone lines and batteries for 10 minutes to try and get the phone to go back to factory defaults. I did this and the problem was still there. I asked to be sent to next level of support since the person I was talking to was just reading from teh manual and was told the she was it. Were it not for the 1 issue with a tone while on hold this would be a great phone. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Big disappointment
    bought two. returned both.first unit broke after two days of light use, and was completely non-functional.Second unit confirmed performance issues I had with the first before it broke, so it was returned as well.

    The speakerphone's full duplex action is not nearly as good as the marketing suggests. The microphone is rather weak, so my listeners tell me. The unit runs very hot all the time, which is a little worrisome. And even the handset doesn't give good voice transmission.i recorded a message with the handset and then listened to it, and it was mediocre quality.Sounded like I was on a headset, not the handset.

    Wish this thing was as good as it looked.Still looking for a true top of the line quality 2-line speakerphone without voice mail.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Speaker phone
    Got this phone because of the great success I had with Polycom phone systems in conference rooms accross Enterpise America.I am not disappointed.It is VERY loud and everyone has said I sound great.I think the echo-ing is a function of room dynamics.Mine are fine, but I have been in rooms where this has been a problem.If you like multi-tasking while on the phone, this is your phone (and mine).Full-Duplex is a must.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great product at a rather high price.
    This is a great phone for office. But the price is a bit higher than it shoud be.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good value for the price
    With some trepidation I bought the PolyCom SoundPoint Pro #225 but it turns out to be just fine *for the price*.I suspect that a lot of the disappointment comes from making a direct comparison of this phone with the high end PolyCom equipment found in so many office conference environments.I think it's unrealistic to expect this desk top phone (...) to be as good as PolyCom's conference phones selling for three to four times as much.

    It is the best desk top speaker phone I've used.The loud speaker perhaps emphasises the bass too much. Thus sometimes recorded voices sound "boomy" but normal conversation seems excellent.It's a bit like hearing voice programs on a high fi system designed for music.I find it definitely good to acceptable.My correspondents have reported good quality sound.

    Full duplex operation is excellent *as long as the highest volume for the speaker isn't used*.This is important since at the maximum volume full duplex seems to break down a bit.I suspect that some of the disappointment comes from trying to use this phone at the high volumes normally used for a conference phone.For normal conversations at my desk, I find setting the volume up half way is plenty loud enough and full duplex works well.Conversations are extremely natural.

    All in all, I find this a good desk top speakerphone, better than anything else I know of.Yes, I would like and would pay for something better in the configuration of a desk top phone.Until I find one this phone is serving me well.

    Note: I would save the money of buying the model with the second speaker.I never use it.This is not a true conference phone.Buy a high end PolyCom phone for that.You won't be disappointed.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not good for the long haul
    When I bought this phone about two years ago I was excited, expecting for the price that it would be a great speakerphone and have other good features.

    All during my phone usage people I talk to through the speakerphone say it's echo-ey.My my office may be a bad place for a speakerphone.Along with some other reviewers, I have found the volume too low.

    In the past year:
    The ringer on line one has stopped working,
    The hand set has stopped working,
    The headset has begun to squeak in a piecing tone.

    Overall, I'm in the market for a new phone, and this one is not on my list!Especially for the price--no way. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars A big disappointment
    Before I bought this phone, I had a 7-year-old Toshiba 2.4GHz phone and a 7-year-old Panasonic digital answering machine. I had to replace the phone because it interfered with our wireless network, and I figured I'd get a new answering machine at the same time - 7 years later, the technology must be better, I reasoned.

    Not so. The sound quality on this phone OK, but worse than on my old phone. And the sound quality of the answering machine is unacceptaby muffled. But those are the first of several big disappointments. The phone has nearly no sidetone, meaning you don't hear yourself speaking in the earpiece. This makes every call uncomfortable. When the phone is on the base station ringing and you pick it up, it doesn't get "picked up" - you have to press a button. Likewise, hanging it up doesn't hang it up. When you press the button to talk, there's a 1-second delay before the caller can hear you, so you end up saying hello twice. Oh, let's see. The "wallpaper" backgrounds are insanely amateurish. No matter how badly you draw, you draw better than the Michelangelos who made this thing. Next: some features are configured on the screen on the base station, while some are configured with an audio interface. The distinction is random. The icons on the phone are highlighted with a movable square outline - except that some of them ARE squares, so the highlight disappears. My outgoing message is unintelligible - I had to yell into the thing, and you can still barely hear me.

    This phone would be a bargain at $10, a reasonable deal at $20, a ripoff at $30. I paid $110. Not happy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finally a phone that has it all
    I had an AT & T phone, when it quit I bought another brand of answering machine and phone. Within 2 weeks I was looking for a new AT&T. They have volumes adjustments for the ringer, they have the toll saver option which is great when you check your messages and it it just a great sounding phone. I had bought a GE and had terrible results. I was told to return the phone and expect a new one in 4 weeks. What a joke. Thank goodness Amazon had AT&T.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very happy, great sound, decent features
    I did a resasonable amount of research prior to purchasing this phone. We have owned several cordless phones over the years, different manufacturers, operating frequencies, etc. My wife and I are VERY happy with this phone (and the E580-I handset we bought to go with it). It is solid, sounds WONDERFUL, including the amazing (to me) handset-based speaker phone, and has very nice features. We don't use all of the bells and whistles, but just as a cordless phone it is the most solid and wonderful sounding phone I have ever used. The answering machine is great, easy to set up and easy to use, sounds good, time tags calls, etc. You can even listen to messages from the handset (we've done that a few times).

    I agree w/ others that it would be nice to have a single call number database/memory that is shared by all handsets, but that's the only (minor) complaint I have.

    Oh yes, I purchased the optional base station backup battery and our phone worked all through a recent multi-hour power failure. Nice! ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Erratic behaviour makes it nearly useless
    I had two samples of this telephone then gave up on it in disgust. Both samples behaved the same way. Obvious faults:

    - Sometimes people on the other end could not hear me at all when I picked up a call using the speakerphone. I had people hang up because they thought the line was dead.

    - I could hear my own voice loudly (louder than the person on the other end) in the earpiece when using a headset (so loud it even got feedback and squealed once).

    - The volume seemed to vary substantially from one call to the next. I never notice such variations on calls from the same people on our other phones.

    - The angle of the (rather small) display is such that you can't read it unless you lean over the top of the phone.

    - Ugliest handest ever. :-)

    This could be a really nice unit - it has some great features I haven't seen in other phones, but it seems like Polycom haven't quite gotten the design right, which is inexcusable for the price. We have Nortel phones at work; those seem to work far better, but I haven't found a domestic version.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Worked Well For Three Days
    Ordered this phone because I work out of a home office and the GE 2 line phone I have is not a good speaker phone.The Polycom SE-220 worked fine for the first three days.On the forth day, I noticed that the phone would no longer place or receive calls, and an earlier time of 2:34 p.m. was on the display.This apparently was when the phone decided to die.No amount of disconnecting the power supply to attempt to re-set the phone worked.

    The phone is shipping back to Amazon today.I am disappointed in that I really need a good speakerphone, but this is not it.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Looks nice, but not quite near the quality advertised
    Overall this phone looks nice and looks professional, but its performance could be matched by other consumer-level phones with similar if not more features.

    I hooked mine up immediately after receiving it (the day before the date of this review) and made my first call using the headset (a Polycom headset, which I already owned). As another reviewer experienced, I heard feedback of my own talking through the ear piece. This is something I never experienced with the same headset plugged into my 2.4Ghz Uniden handheld phone.

    Polycom describes the speakerphone this way:

    "SoundPoint? Pro SE-220 seamlessly integrates handset and headset telephone functionality with crystal clear, hands-free voice conferencing in an elegant personal business phone. .... Polycom?s Acoustic Clarity Technology enables callers to speak when they want without clipped sentences and one-way conversations that are common with ordinary business speakerphones."

    I didn't find this to be the case consistently. During the first moments of my first speakerphone call, there was clipping/reduced quality on both ends. However, this can be expected and the Troubleshooting section of the Soundpoint manual explains that the phone must adjust and to give it a few moments. In fact, I found this to be the case, on MY end. After several moments, the quality of sound/voice call through the speaker was very good.

    However, the sound quality on the receiver's end stayed poor. I was told that I sounded muffled and that while longer sentences came across fine, any short sentences or one-word answers were clipped. There was also a huge difference to my call participant when I picked up the headphones or handset. This call was over 5 minutes and I would expect the "adjustment" time per the manual to be much less than this. Also, it did not matter whether I moved the phone closer or farther away, or talked more directly into the microphone. On the other hand, several calls since then were of much better quality and the people on the other end thought that it sounded better than a typical, cheaper (e.g., non-Soundstation type) speakerphone. However, they could still typically tell that I was on speaker.

    I was initially very disappointed in this phone and even processed a return for it as "defective." However, I may just keep it after all - it's not a "bad" phone.

    Otherwise, if you're willing to chance or accept the performance, the phone looks nice, the buttons are layed out nicely, and the features seem pretty easy to use.

    Just keep in mind that you should not expect, to any realistic degree, that this phone will provide the quality of a Soundstation, or perhaps not even of a Voicestation. My understanding is that one can pick up a new Uniden 2.4 Ghz phone from some places for about $100, that comes with several handsets with speaker capability. That might not be a good solution for you, but I'm just highlighting that this Soundpoint is certainly not the be-all and end-all of SOHO business speakerphones.

    You may be very happy with this one, but you should look at all options: Don't necessarily buy this phone due to the Polycom name or your positive experiences with their high-end products.

    -2 Star for poor headset performance (surprisingly, with a Polycom headset). The phone has a built-in amplifier, but I can't find a way to adjust it.
    -1 stars for inconsistent speakerphone performance (+1 for speaker on the phone end, -2 for performance on the receiver's end)

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good Quality - Needs finishing touches
    Here is my impression of this phone (you will find resemblance to what some folks have already said, as I too have discovered the same strengths/weaknesses). I would actually give the phone a 3.5, as it has good quality, but some of the shortcomings are just too large to justify a 4 or 5:

    Good Sound Quality
    - incoming speakerphone quality is not the best I've heard, but acceptable
    - outgoing quality is terrific
    - internal amplifier for headset allows good quality headsets to be used without needing an additional amplifier (which would require running the headset through the handset, requiring handset to be off hook when headset is in use)

    Poor design shortcomings that even cheap phones provide:
    - no notification of calls missed on caller id - must navigate menus, which to me is unacceptable for a phone of this level, and really impacts the ease of use of this phone
    - no data port to piggy back a single line to other phones, etc
    - no backlit display, and poor phone angle (IMHO, there should be the ability to adjust the phone tilt angle) make for poor visual reading of phone

    Overall, a nice phone that provides good speakerphone quality, a trait that is truly more difficult to find than one would think (I've tried several phones, only to be disappointed time and again).But it also has some obvious shortcomings that need to be addressed to make it more user friendly.If you can deal with the lack of missed call notification (which may be a sticking point for me, only time will tell), this phone will suit you well.

    This phone simply stinks. I have had nothing but problems with it. Although the sound quality is fairly good (not great), I frequently encounter lock-ups, in which case I have to unplug the phone and reset it. Also, something has happended to the phone so that it now constnatly displays both phone lines as being in use, regardless of whether any line is acutally being used. I replaced it with a GE phone with better displays and which cost about $75.00 less. Avoid at all costs. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Polycom SoundPoint Pro 3-Line
    I have worked out of my home office for several years and have found the cordless phones quite inadequate. I frequently do 2HR + conference calls to the west coast, and have never felt comfortable using my speaker phone because it lacked professional sound quality. This is an excellent phone for your home office.

    Although the speakerphone is not the same quality as their triangualar one, I am now very comfortable now doing long calls on it. I think the incoming speaker quality sounds excellent, I had one caller that had trouble hearing me, but I turned off the rear microphone and it improved.

    The keyboard and handset are very comfortable.The menus are a bit too cumbersome to navigate and the phone lacks a voice mail light indicator. You have to pick up the handset and listen to the dial tone, instead of a quick glance, which is disappointing for a phone of this quality.

    Features that can be improved include the LCD back light should be added and you should be able to program in more letters to your speed dial. It is restricted to 8 letters, it is also quite an antiquated method of programming them in, it is much too time consuming.

    A positive feature for this phone is that it identifies the call length and it is very useful for managing your time in regards to your work day, and if you talk with attorneys you can easily track their billing. The 3 way conference feature works great and I am very pleased with how easily it is to set up conference calls on my own.

    I think this is an excellent phone for a home office and would recommend it. I hope they can make a few adjustments for the next version, but in general I am very happy with this phone for my home office and has improved the overall quality of my workday.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Phone
    Recieved this phone last week.I bought the phone based on what a friend who is an expert on telecommunications told me.I needed a phone where the speakerphone sounded like I was talking on a handest.The audio is fantastic, but the pepole on the other end can still tell that I am on a speaker phone.So in that sense I am a little disappointed, but it is the best of the worst home office phone options.Other than that the setup is real easy, one other small drawback is when you put the names of people in your speed dial it only holds like 10 letters which is annoying.For a phone of this price I shoud be able to put a sentence in if I wish.Also if you are accessing voicemail you can only enter a few soft pause #'s before it runs out of room.If your reading this Polycom fix these things and you will have a much friendlier system.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Unreliable Seller
    I ordered this phone on Jan 15, 2004.Today is Feb 9, 2004 and I have not received it to date.I've tried contacting the seller, but the emails are bounced back and it states the email address is not valid.Everyone, I urge you NOT to purchase from this seller.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great full featured speakerphone.
    Full duplex speakerphone sound has to be experienced to be believed.Headset lets you dig through files with both hands or keyboard without hindrance.Caller ID and call-waiting caller ID gives you a full time paid for receptionist.Call logs and auto dial from call logs makes it easy to get back, even to people who don't leave voicemail messages (or forget to leave their phone numbers).Second microphone on back of unit for conference calling is also impressive.... mine worked fantastically right out of the box and has continued to do so for the past 18 months.Great company with great design - check their website for occasional product rebat offers.I got [some money] off on my phone.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Flawed product from a first rate company
    I found the Soundstation product I use in the office to be so good that I decided to get this product for my home office.

    I purchased the 2 line version of this phone. I had two problems immediately. The light on the mute button stopped working. Also, there was this annoying intermitant hum on the line (which all others on the call could hear as well). I called their customer service and they were very helpful. They apologized for the problem. They told me that the hum was a design flaw and that new models shouldn't experience the problem. I asked them to send me a new version of the phone so that I wouldn't have this problem going forward. They gave me a return materials number.

    I received a replacement phone in the mail within a week and found that phone to have the same problem with a hum. I am very disappointed that they don't stand behind their product. If there is a design flaw then they should replace the product or refund the purchase price. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Does everything its supposed to
    I bought this as a reconditioned phone via an amazon re-seller.

    If you have two lines at home, this is the phone for you. (Assuming you can find one).

    It's sound quality is fine and given its relative complexity, it is easy to use.If it has the features you are looking for, go for it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid this phone
    This phone will cut off your callers when they are leaving a voice-mail (see other reviews to see that this is common).It appears that it is dectecting tones in the callers voice which triggers the phone to think you are trying to access your voice mail.

    Avoid this phone.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Bad phone, poor customer service
    The answering machine cuts off messages.After three months use static came on the line with each use.House telephone lines checked out; we were told phone was defective.Customer service of no use.Avoid this phone and avoid AT&T "service".

    5-0 out of 5 stars AT&T 2462 Saves drowning poodle!!
    Actually - No.But this phone system has been with us for over a year now, and the quality and features still impress us.Many of our clients don't recognize when they are speakerphone, and the feature-set - for a two-line phone - is impressive.The menu system for speed-dial can be a bit bothersome - but works fine, once you are used to it.One feature we would have liked to see, is a way to add 'hold music'...but this is a minor peeve.

    2-0 out of 5 stars AT & T Model 2462
    The voice quality is GREAT.The answering system, cuts off messages.AT&T support is terrible.Sent replacement...it failed also...sent upgrade model E2562,(with wrong remote units - which had be returned for the correct ones)...now line one is disconnected when put on hold to answer line two.It has been 10 months of dealing with a very poorly run customer service department. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Speaker Phone I've ever had
    I recently purchased this phone and I expect this will more than pay for itself in a short time.I am using this phone along with a calling card (3.5 cents per minute)to save money and the hassle of trying to call during certain times on the various calling plans.No calling plan comes close to using some of todays calling cards.
    I use one of the buttons for the phone number of the calling card, another for the pass code, then another for the party you wish to talk to.This takes a couple of seconds, then you have a crystal clear connection.
    When there is a need to be on hold for a while, you just push the speaker phone button to free yourself of having to hold the phone up to your ear. I opt to use the speaker phone on all calls, then I pick up the when the phone is answered.
    I hope this phone lasts.I'm hoping for these to come on sale as this will save time (and money)in shopping for the holidays.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad.
    This is a great little phone for the most part.

    1)The buttons are not tiny, so you won't be pressing the wrong numbers by mistake.

    2)The digital readout is good, but after about two years it begins to fade a bit.

    3)The sound quality is clear.

    4)The cord is way too short though. You have to be sitting right next to the phone. But I simply replaced it with a longer cord.

    5)Programing is not too complicated, but keep the manual nearby for when you have to re-program numbers. It is not simple enough to remember how to do it easily.

    But it is better than most other phones I have used. I would recommend it to anyone who was looking for a new phone. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good conference phone, but ...
    I got this conference phone at a good price.It is quite expensive for home use.

    Pro:
    * It can be loud.
    * When someone in the house pick up the phone, it makes a short beep. Great for monitoring.
    * Cord is long.Great when you want to extend to other table.
    * Got a RCA jack if you want to record it.

    Con:
    * It does sound like you are inside a big tunnel.Isnt all speakphone like this?Who can tell the difference if both are using it.
    * Too expensive.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for office conferences.
    I use it for my SOHO and it works great. I do not understand who other users have posted negative comments on this product. It works great, the sound quality is pretty good for the price. Soundstation with mics is better, but also three times as expensive.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time
    I purchased this phone thinking it was similar to the SoundStation 100, the difference being this one is newer, sleeker, and cheaper... I was wrong.

    The sound quality is terrible.I could not hear a person speaking from a handset without clipping.When I spoke, others said it sounded like I was in a tunnel, or very far from the mic. This was in a room about 10x12.They said it is for small rooms...Like a closet perhaps?

    I am going to step up to the SoundStation 100...Which has much better reviews.I'll review it there...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Step up to SoundStation
    I bought this phone hoping it would be similar in quality to the polycom soundstation phones we use at work. It was not.

    When I use the phone, I often cannot hear the first half sentence of the other party when they begin speaking. They complain that I sound like I am in a huge room, and can't hear me if I get more than a foot from the unit.

    I am most disappointed.

    3-0 out of 5 stars No built-in answering machine/voice mail
    I purchased the Panasonic Phone # KX-TS282B based on the only 2 reviews I could find, which took several hours to find. Trying to find a site where you can find or leave a review for a Panasonic phone is a joke. As one of only 2 other reviewers stated, "It is a PITA!"

    Yes, it is a nice looking phone and yes it has lots of features, however, I was disappointed that it did not have an internal answering machine. My inexpensive GE cordless phone for my residence has that and it has always worked great.I can't imagine a business phone that doesn't come with answering phone or voice mail feature.

    I have just purchased a franchise, which I will be doing as a home-based business for the first year.I am it.I need a phone that allows me to connect with my customers when I am away from my office and visa versa.If a customer calls me and wants to leave me an order or wants to inquire about prices or products and I am out on a delivery, that customer cannot leave that information and time is wasted playing phone tag trying to reconnect with that person. I certainly can't afford to lose customers before I even get them.

    I will take part of the blame, because I shouldn't have assumed that it had that feature.

    Also, a little flyer was in the packaging that stated, IMPORTANT! Before you return product to the retailer! Call us FIRST at 1-800-211-7262.Supposedly their hours on Saturday-Sunday are from 9am-7pm EST.Well, I live in the EST time zone and I started calling at 4pm on Saturday and 2 hrs. later I gave up. All I got was a busy signal.Do they only have one phone line?



    5-0 out of 5 stars sweet - finally a decent 2-line phone
    What a PITA trying to find reviews for 2-line landline phones.
    Using it for a home office phone.

    NICE: Crystal clear. Speakerphone is very good. CallerID is great and allows easy addition to built-in directory. Can use different ringtones for each line. Can add other phone of same type as extensions with intercom capability. Has jack for headset (haven't tried it yet). Has Mute button for those boring teleconference calls.

    Had a GE 2-line phone that worked for about a year and developed aloud annoying hum. Piece of junk >:(

    Buy this one - it's a no-brainer. :)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good Phone, Many Features
    If you need a phone that does not require an AC wall plug, this is probably what you need.The description does not give the features, so here goes:

    It has Caller ID and if you have the service, Call Waiting ID.

    It has a 14 number quick dial, and a 25 number stored directory dial.

    You can store numbers from the Caller ID right into quick dial or the directory.

    You can redial numbers directly from the caller ID screen with the push of one button.

    It has a speakerphone, with mute, and volume control for the speaker phone.

    It has a hold button.

    All of the buttons are large enough that you don't feel like you're pecking at microdots.

    It is easily wall or desk mounted.

    The LCD screen is very visible, and can be adjusted for contrast.

    You have a choice of English, Spanish or French for the language.

    You can program in area codes if you have to always dial 10 numbers to make a call (I think this is called layering or somesuch by the phone companies).

    All in all, a lot of quality for a very reasonable price.

    Audio quality seems good, and I am a little hard of hearing in one ear, but there is no problem with this phone in that regard.

    It does require 4 AA batteries which are not included, but to be honest the batteries that get included with items are garbage anyway so you'd want to use quality batteries.

    If you need a corded phone, which you should have in the event of a power failure (your cordless phones will not work without AC power but phones plugged into a regular phone wall jack will work if the wires are not down), then this is going to be the phone for you.

    Go ahead, spend the money, you'll get a good quality phone. ... Read more

    Nice well designed phone. Very easy to program. Takes 3 AA batteries for memory presets. I purchased two of these phones, one for my grandparents who promptly dropped the phone on the kitchen floor ejecting the batteries thereby erasing all the pre-programmed numbers that I had entered. Battery cover needs to be taped down to prevent this, as battery cover does not close well (Panasonic could have designed a better battery cover into this phone as they have with other models).

    Phone has nicely sized buttons, loud ringer and well functioning speakerphone feature as well as a headset jack. Receiver cord is a bit short but can easily be replaced with a longer one. Will review again as the phones age. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Siemens - Do you even care ?
    Had a Gigaset 2420 - very expensive, worked great for about 2 yrs - then like everyone else that bought one experienced bad display and warbling when on calls. Looked for replacements and found the Gigaset 8825 had the best feature set for the money -bought into Siemens again for even more $$$$The phone out of the box had clicks and pops in the cordless conversations - then lately ( 1.5 yrs old ) the caller ID on line one no longer works. Sad - Very Sad I have to see if I bought this on one of those credit cards that automatically extends wty - Siemens does not want anything to do with it - their 800# support only helps their newest prey - the tech I reached on their toll # only said the phone was shot and bring it to a service center.Collectively people have lost a lot of money to this company.I for one will not buy any Siemens product again - ever.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Do not buy Siemens Gigaset at any price
    From my experience, Siemens never repaired the issues form their first miserable attempt at creating a consumer/home office phone line of business.I made this mistake of forgiving them on the first iteration, only to see the same problems on the second. If you have the same experience as I, you'll begin to see the LCD fade after a year, maybe two. The handsets deteriorate in short order as well.For me, attempts to contact Siemens result in an offer from them to sell me reconditioned components, or no return e-mail at all.

    If you buy this you will be: wasting your money, rewarding gross incompetence, become as frustrated as I.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Stay away from Siemens phones!

    Pros:Specifications look good on paper.Phone made neat crackling sounds as I used it for target practice with my shotgun.

    Cons:Everything else.

    This system reminds me of Paris Hilton - nice package that works out great for a while, but sooner or later you discover there is little merit to this overpriced, high-maintenance, fragile and fickle unit.

    Customer service is basically from the "we-already-made-our-money-and-we-don't-repair-them-so-screw-you" school of thought.Unfortunately, I bought 2 of them with 4 remotes.Both base stations have failed - so I guess I'm stuck.

    I wonder if the remotes would fit in my clay pidgeon launcher...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Destruction of the phone by power outages
    I had the previous line of phones and paid hundreds of dollars for it only to find that a power outage destroyed line 1. Siemens wouldn't fix it and essentially told me I was out of luck.I swore never to buy another Siemen's product.I was curious about the new generation phones and I see that they still have the identical problem.It doesn't surprise me.They showed zero interest when I reported the problem so how could they redesign the next generation of phones to deal with it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars This set has been really great for me
    Good range, excellent sound quality, loaded with features.In the Fisk Mansion we needed a way to have a bunch of phones without ripping out the walls and this worked great for us.

    Cons :
    Hard to get to line 2 from remote handsets.
    SpeakerPhone is not loud enough.
    No flash switchhook feature on remotes for call waiting (that I know of). ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Phone
    I bought this phone mainly because I wanted a model that had numerous speed-dialing buttons and a decent speakerphone. Thus far, I am very pleased with the model. The 945 is a 4-line phone designed for office use, but it works great as a home phone. It has 16 speed dial buttons located on the right side of the phone. This makes it a snap to call family and friends by just pushing two buttons - one for speakerphone and one for the number. The speakerphone seems to work well and I also like the green backlit lcd display, which generally looks cool but also makes the phone easy to use in the dark. It also displays the date, time, number dialed, and phone call length, useful for keeping track of how long an interesting (or not) conversation has been going on for. Phone preferences can be set by an easy to use on-screen menu system and there are also a bunch of ring tones to choose from, which I appreciate because I have chosen a lower frequency tone that is so much more pleasant than the typical high-pitched annoying telephone ring my last phone had. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Nice phone, nice features
    I've been very pleased with this phone.The bright and large black on orange text display is a big improvement over older Panasonic black on green displays.Borrowing from cell phone functions, there are three soft keys for voicemail notification on/off, voice enhancer, and phone list, a nice touch.The handset is comfortable to use (albeit larger than many other brands), and the keypad has nice large keys that are easily dialed one-handedly.The good-quality speakerphone is also a handy option, as is the flashing light visible on the antenna tip to signal incoming calls or new voicemail.

    Sound quality is excellent both in and out; I've not had any of the issues noted, and I did test via leaving messages on my cell phone.However, when the "Voice Enhancer" function is turned on, my voice did sound overamplified with feedback noise.I'm guessing that this function is designed for someone with a very soft voice, and that most users would be better off not engaging it.It is, though, a nice option for perhaps a child or the elderly person who needs their voice "enhanced".

    Overall, with the $30 Panasonic rebate in place until the end of May, I rate this phone very highly on a price/value basis.I may purchase another.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best phone I've ever had
    I've owned this phone for over a year, (...) My favorite feature is the speakerphone on the handset.This is so convenient.It even allows you to mute while on speakerphone.Great for those conference calls to the office when you're home with a sick child.Another great feature is that if you have voicemail with your phone company, a light on the antenna will flash to let you know you have a message. By the way, I have had none of the problems mentioned by others.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Battery died in 6 months, never got the rebate.
    I bought the phone and WAS satisfied with its quality even I didn't get the rebate. (Panasonic is famous for its bad rebate) But barely after 6 months, the battery totally died. I here DO NOT recommend this phone and I do not recommend any panasonic products with rebates.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Panasonic's reputation got dinged with this phone
    I too am disapointed in this phone. I've always been pleased with Panasonic products, but not this one. For me, the problems are when I'm too close to the base unit, the other party can't understand me. It seems when I'm further away it clears up. How Panasonic can release a phone to the market with this kind of obvious problem is beyond me. I like the features. I like the speakerphone. I like everything else about it, but if it can't do the basic function of talking to a caller, what good is it?

    My recomendation is to avoid this model completely and hold out for something else.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Voice Does Not Sound Clear To Others
    I bought the Panasonic KX-TG5050W and charged the battery for six hours as recommended.I made test calls to friends. I heard them clearly, but they all said that my voice sounded muffled and had an echo.This is unacceptable.I returned the phone and bought the Panasonic KX-TG2313W.This is a great phone.I don't believe it is available in black. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars poor design
    1. Remote operation: You cannot use a cell phone to check messages remotely on this phone (Southwest Bell Help Line) making this service useless for most operators.
    2. Limited technical help - required four days to have phone call returned.
    3. Poor sound quality on the digital message system.
    4. Garbled instructional messages built into the machine which cannot be turned off.

    2-0 out of 5 stars poor design
    It works, and it takes messages, but I expected more.

    1) You need the manual to use this one - nothing is intuitive.
    i.e. There are TWO buttons labeled erase, and they only work in certain modes. huh?
    2) To set the time, you cannot use the key pad, you have to use the review side switch to go through minute-by-minute with the annoying/scary son of Dek Talk voice saying every minute... by the time it says minute FORteeFIVE I wished I had waited until 1 AM to set it.
    3) It has to tell you the instructions verbally every time you use it - I couldn't figure out how to turn the annoying voice off.
    4) Annoying voice.
    5) Even with all the audio information it does not have a beep function to signal new messages.

    4-0 out of 5 stars very nice multi-function corded telephone.great price.
    We bought this phone to replace a cordless phone that kept getting intermittent interference.It works great with no interference.We replaced the short cord that came with it with a 25 foot cord.We still don't have the freedom of a cordless, but we don't have the static either.

    I really like the look of the phone, stylish without going off the deep end.The automated voice for the instructions and default greeting could be a little more pleasant.Overall, I am really happy with the phone and so is my wife (which is the most important thing). ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    A popular and affordable telephone, the 210 from AT&T is designed for those who don't want hassles or frills, just a basic phone that's reliable and easy to use. Simple corded operation means you never have worry about misplacing a cordless handset, and the phone's sturdy construction means it's designed to last.

    You can place the base on a convenient surface or easily mount it on the wall, saving on counter space. A 12-number memory dial feature lets you store your most frequently called numbers (up to 21 digits)--nine speed dials plus three emergency one-touch dials that are easy to program. A directory card is provided to help you keep track of all your memory dial settings. A redial feature lets you quickly call the last outgoing number (up to 32 digits).

    Three ringer settings (off, low, and high) and three handset volume levels permit customization. Switchable tone and pulse dialing methods are also provided. The illuminated keypad helps you operate the phone even in darkly lit areas, while a prog/mute button on the handset lets you hear the other party while muting your side of the conversation. An excellent value, the 210 also comes backed with a one-year limited warranty.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best single line phone design ever
    I've loved the trimline phone ever since I got my first phone more than 20 years ago.Then, the trimline was a real, Bell System, telephone.Although this phone is clearly not the same as the real Bell trimline phones, it still has the great, comfortable design and the dialpad in the handset, which makes it an excellent choice.I've compared several other trimline phones and this is the closest phone I could find to the original Bell phones.

    Northwestern Bell also makes a trimline phone, but the quality and comfort are nowhere near this AT&T version.

    If you read the other reviews, you will see that at least one review (dated November of 2004) says that this phone was discontinued.Yet, here we are in late November 2004, and its still around.I'm guessing (could be wrong here) that this phone will be around forever, even though AT&T no longer promotes it on their web-site.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for what it is
    I'm amazed by the number of people these days who own nothing but cordless phones. Now, I like cordless phones; they're an indispensable part of modern life. But, unlike a simple phone like this Trimline, most cordless phones don't work when the electricity goes out. This phone requires no battery or AC power, and has a lighted keypad, and a ringer on/off switch--all of which make it a nice bedroom phone for emergencies. The sound quality is good, and the volume is adjustable.

    5-0 out of 5 stars MISTAKE
    The design of this corded telephone is very comterble to talk into. The easy-to-read green backlit oval kepad makes it easy to dial at night without having to reach up with one arm to turn on the light. The handset and ringer volume controls makes it easy to turn the volume up or down to make the ring louder or softer and makes it easy to make it to a comterble listening level. The only mistake at&t made was when I press the fire button, it calls 911. It says on the box: "# ONE BEST-SELLING PHONE OF ALL TIME" I can tell why. It has all the features that you can get all in one telephone. I LOVE THIS PHONE!!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars GOOD PHONE
    THIS IS THE **ONLY** GOOD PHONE AT&T MAKES.
    THEIR CORDLESS PHONES ARE UNRELIABLE, CHEAPLY MANUFACTUREDED AND HAVE THE WORST RECEPTION I HAVE EVER HEARD.
    IN MY EXPERIENCE, ONLY THE AT&T CORDED PHONES ARE ACCEPTABLE.
    STAY AWAY FROM THIS BRAND (WHY DO YOU THINK AT&T KEEPS HAVING LAYOFFS- AND THE NYSE TRIED TO UNLIST THEM FOR BEING A PENNY STOCK).. SINCE THE COMPANY BROKE UP INTO 7 COMPANIES, THE PRODUCTS THE PUT OUT ARE NO GOOD.

    AT&T= AMERICAN TRASH TELEPHONE

    5-0 out of 5 stars The most perfect corded telephone is now discontinued
    Imitated poorly by Conair and Bell South, among others, the classic AT&T 210 Trimline is the follow-on to the original pre-divestiture Trimline telephones.Once available in white, bisque/ivory, a greenish color, and black, it's now discontinued.Every few years the manufacturer of the 210 changes.My first 210s are made by Philips.The newer ones are manufactured by some company in China called "Advanced American Telephones."The quality is the same.I have attempted to use the Conair and Bell South knock-offs and none of them have the solid feel and sound quality of the AT&T models.When we used to live nearby a radio transmitter only the 210 Trimlines could filter out the interference.

    Notable features include a weighted base and the current models being sold have a handy cord winder in the base to shorten a long modular line.The handset cord is the AT&T Tuffcord style so it does not kink, sag, and by some magical technology does not get dirty like the cheaper knock-offs.Features that nobody needs on a phone like this include memory redial and wall mounting.

    Sadly this product has been discontinued.I have always wanted a red "hotline" colored 210 but they don't exist exept in the form of the old rotary-dial and transformer-powered touch-tone Trimlines installed by Bell before divestiture. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Works well for my purposes
    If you're on the lookout for fabulous stereo sound and a lot of bells and whistles, this unit probably isn't for you.However, if you want an easy-to-use clock-radio-cd-telephone combination that saves some space on your nightstand, this works quite well.

    The sound from the radio and cd player tends to reflect the speakers being rather small, but is decent enough for what I expected.The controls are easy to use, although a couple of CD controls may be worth reading the instructions for (such as, if you want to skip ahead to another track on a CD, press the "CD display" button before you press the forward button, or you'll just fast forward through the current song).There is a night light on this unit that is actually quite helpful, if you don't like turning on your lamp and blinding yourself when you just need something to keep you from stubbing your toes on the way to the bathroom.The button to turn it on and off is large, so you aren't fumbling in the dark for it.Same goes for the snooze button in the morning - I like being able to groggily thwack a button that's easy to find.The clock display is bright and easy to read (I replaced an old Timex unit whose Indiglo light didn't "glo" nearly enough).I don't think there's a "dim" setting for the clock, so keep that in mind if bright displays bother you at night.The volume and radio station tuning controls are a little fiddly, being on the side of the unit rather than the front, but are still better than some I've used in the past.The phone handset is pretty straightforward, the one drawback being that when hanging up you feel you have to make sure it "sits right" in the cradle, so you really know you've closed the connection.And, as always, Caller ID is a "Good Thing."

    Overall, I've found this unit to perform well for the purposes that I bought it for, and have been quite pleased.

    2-0 out of 5 stars So-So
    I was satisfied with the purchase when I first got it. This clock/radio/CD player is slim and looks sophicated. I like how it's compact and not heavy to move around. The CD player works alright, but the sound quality of the radio is pretty poor. No matter how I turn the manual AM/FM tuning dial, I can't seem to turn to the radio station I want. Sometimes, there's a hiss sound, which can be annoying. I didn't have this product long enough to find out how the telephone works, because I'm returning it! ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not as advertised
    This is a nice 4 line phone, but the digital answering system does not work. We have 2 984's and several other brand 4-line phones. I could not find any way to make either 984 work as a four line answering system. Auto-Attendent is useless in our situation. These phones are certainly not worth the money. Unfortunately there aren't many 4-line phones on the market and apparently no 4-line digital answering systems.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Garbage
    We have been trying to get this system to work in our office for a couple of months. Tech support has been worthless. If you want to go out of business fast because no one can call you, get this system.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not for two line home office
    There must be thousands of home businesses that need a two line corded phone with an answering machine, but this is not that phone and I haven't found any other either.I suggest reading the reviews of AT&T 964 all of which apply in my experience.The answering machine will only allow one outgoing announcement for all four lines.In other words, a call coming in on any of the four lines will get the same message when it reaches the answering machine.Worse if one is using one line, the answering machine will not pick up a call coming in on another line.This wouldn't be so bad except when one is using one line the ring on the other lines is so muted that it is easy to miss the ring.As others have noted sound quality can be either good or poor for unknown reasons.I gave the phone two stars because the phone has a nice feel and look and the ring tones are pleasant as are the pre-recorded messages and such. The dialing out tones are aversive and automatic dialing is really slow. ... Read more
