5-0 out of 5 stars Great Sound Quality
We purchased a competing phone, but took it back because I was not pleased with the sound quality.This phone is as clear as a bell.

It would be nice if the menu was a little easier.It would be nice if the main base unit was a speaker phone too.It would have been nice too if all of the buttons on the phone lit up.Only the number pad glows.So basically, you can dial the number in the dark, but unless you are not familiar with the phone, you will not be able to do anything else :)These are not enough to lower the ratings though.

Otherwise, the phone has it all plus quality.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Phone
I spent quite a large amount of time researching cordless phones before deciding to purchase this unit.There have been many complaints about Panasonic's slightly older lines of 2.4 and 5.8 GHz phones.However, this phone appears to be of an entirely different desgin as evidenced by the slimmer handset form factor.I have had this phone for a few weeks and have not run into any performance issues.

While the phone suffers from a few minor flaws such as having to pay to download ring tones on each handset and having handsets register missed calls when another handset is used to answer the phone, these types of issues are pretty much omnipresent in the current generation of multihandest/expandable handset phone systems.

This product is not perfect but seems much more reliable and than many of the other top of the line phone systems out there.I highly reccomend this product!

5-0 out of 5 stars Love this phone!
This is the third time I have bought a phone system with one base and multiple handsets, and this is the best one I have used so far.The reasons range from trivial (I like the sounds of the ring tones), to significant (you can use multiple handsets at once).

The two most important features for me before purchase were:

1) 5.8 Ghz spread spectrum.My old phone was a 2.4 Ghz, and it would occasionally interfere with my wireless computer network.It was very annoying.My moving to a phone that uses a different frequency range, the problem is completely avoided.

2) The ability to use multiple handsets at the same time.Another phone I previously had would not let two handsets talk in the same conversation at the same time.This was just miserable.This phone lets you do this without any problems.

After purchase, I found that it had some other amazing features:

1) Each phone has a unique ID, and you can conference between the handsets.With the range this phone has, my wife and I now carry them around outside (we have a 3 acre yard) and use them to talk to each other.

2) The phone has an AMAZING speakerphone capability on each handset!This was not on my radar at all, but it is really useful.

3) When playing back messages it has recorded, it shows you the caller ID entry for the message.Really nice touch.

4) While I don't know much about it yet, I can apparently keep the numbers in the phone's phonebook in sync with those stored in Outlook in my computer.I can also download new ringtones, but that's not so importent to me.More info on this is available at www.openlcr.com.

The ONLY annoying thing about this phone is that when you answer a call on one handset, the other two handsets register it as a 'missed call' in the caller ID list.I considered rating it 4 stars for this, but once you get used to it, the rest of the features more than make up for it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect
This phone has all the features anyone could possibly need. It's also relatively easy to figure out, since the interace is similar to your average cell phone's menu-style interface. One thing I was surprised by though, is if you pay to download a ringtone, you only get it on ONE of the handsets! You have to pay 3 times to put the same ring tone on all the handsets. I got burned by this, and it's why I'm giving it 4 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply the BEST
Save your time, and your money...this is the phone you want. I have tried them all, and Panasonics last for years and never let us down.We use this system on our Voip, Packet 8 service and it works perfectly.It is so loaded with handy and useful features, that we are spoiled by it.We rush to answer the phone as this is such a pleasure to use.Panasonic really outdid themselves with the 5433, we just love it.You enter all your phone numbers in one handset and it will copy them over to the other two handsets for you...one at a time or all at once, truly a neat feature. You set the time on one set, any one you like, and the other two handsets pick it up automatically.Did I mention we are happy? ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Features missing
For prospective buyers:This phone has no ability to transfer the phone book between handsets and/or base unit (you have to enter the number manually into each one) and has really irritating ring choices.

2-0 out of 5 stars wireless LAN users please read this
I do not own this wireless phone
but I was checking the replacement of Vtech, which has a lot of static, and the voicemail records without any reason
when I check this model, I found this phone is running on both 2.4 and 5.8GHz (same as Vtech)
wireless owners, pls think twice before buying this unit

2-0 out of 5 stars Not good with wireless communication
This is the second 5.8 we purchased and returned.It disconnects our wireless internet when the phone is in use.We have to turn the computer off and reboot to get it back once the call has ended.Funny, the label states this was developed just for wireless connections.We tried the Panasonic KX-TG5240M first which I commented on too.

The sound quality seemed to be good and battery life okay, just kills the internet... Really liked some of the features, but was a little complicated to program.You only have to do that once, though.So, if you are not worried about the wireles internet and can work your way through the first programing, this might be a good choice.

We are on our third brand, Radio Shack's 5.8.Funny, it costa LOT less and so far no problems.

4-0 out of 5 stars main pros and cons
This phone is top of the line AT&T has to offer.It includes all the features we often use as consumers.However, remember that this technology is rather new to the cordless phones market.If people learn about them and find out how they are best used, it will minimize the complaining factor.The only negitive thing i see about these new phones is their warrenty.When you pay that high the warrenty should be at least 3 years.

This phone is a great match to Vonage.The Voice message indicator light works (needs to be turned on, its off by default on the handsets, uses more battery).The Screen will also display that you have a voicemail waiting.As for the function of the phone, its great, it has not interfered with anything else in my house andis a good feel on the ear.All in all I recommend this phone for use with Voicemail setups, and its good for Vonage. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Very nice phone system
An incredible little phone system. We purchased a full compliment with 3 additional handsets a few months ago. So far it's been great. The default ring tone is nice but the other options are pretty annoying. The screen is easy to read and the menu system is very easy to navigate. The speakerphone is surprisingly clear. There has been no interference and our wireless computer network hub is only 10' away from the base. The Voice Enhance feature is pretty much worthless. It makes everyone sound like a Decepticon. The signal won't make it through our building's firewall about 200' away but I have yet to find a phone that will.

One point on caller ID: The handsets that do not answer a call will display "XX Missed Calls" but the caller ID data is still there. Hitting the up/down button will take you right to the numbers, just like on most cell phones. From the other reviews is sounded like Caller ID data would not be recorded on idle handsets.

This system replaces the hellish nightmare we had been using: the Siemens 2420 Gigaset. The Siemens phones had bad internal electrical connections that resulted in the earphone cutting out and non-functioning buttons. Those Siemens phones also had the worst menu system ever devised for a phone. Transferring a call was so complicated we got in the habit of physically handing the phones to the person the call was for. We're still getting used to being able to transfer calls!

1-0 out of 5 stars Misleading product
I purchased this phone, specifically for the mailbox functionality claimed by Panasonic ("Up to 3 mailboxes").

Unlike their other products, this product DOES NOT support mailboxes. Only after several conversations with their technical support did I "help" them come to the conclusion that their web site and product specs are incorrect.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good phone but could use better user interface
I've owned several multi handset systems over the last 4 years beginning with the product the started it all off, the Siemens 2420.Don't even get me started on how bad the Siemens cordless handset reception is.Everyone who uses one knows they are pathetic.Other than the poor reception, the Siemens 2420 and 8825 still have the best menu system and setup of any multi handset system, Panasonic 6500/6502 included!

Just so everyone understands, Panasonic, Uniden and most companies (I believe Vtech/AT&T included) use the same chipsets from www.dspg.com.This is why the ergonomics of most of these systems are the same or similar.I'll list the advantages and disadvantages I see in the DSP Group implemenation as compared to Siemens way of doing things....

Advantages:
-Excellent handset reception (even the 2.4Ghz models are OK and do not experience much interference)5.8 is very clear with no interference in my home.
-handset range is actually better than I suspected at 5.8Ghz (remember the higher the frequency the shorter the wavelength
and generally the shorter the range).
-Room/baby monitor

Disadvantages:
-no handset naming
-handsets show missed call even if the call is answered by another handset.
-no password lockout for settings (such as answering machine PIN).Can't lockout the kids from being nosey.
-only supports 2 digit answering machine PIN
-When remote checking answering machine it does not support reading of caller ID info for message (how many people say "call me" but you don't remember their #)?
-overly complex menu to manipulate answering machine from remote phone.
-does not set time by using caller ID info
-4 handsets only
-True Speech voice compression quality is horrible even if set to "enhanced" mode.

So, reception alone is enough to convince me to keep this system and toss my aged Siemens.Ergo-wise, I will definitely miss my Siemens.Unfortunately Siemens Corporate tells me they will not have a new phone system until the second half of 2005.

Sorry that this review turned into a comparison to Siemens, however I feel that DSP Group, Panasonic, Uniden, etc. who support them need to get of their rocker and begin to expand the feature-set of the chipsets to support features that people can really use!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY Satisfied with this phone
I purchased this phone with three additional handsets and I am extremely happy with it. The quality is excellent, compared to 2.4GHz phones, and it does not interfere with my wireless computer network. The range is excellent. All features are easy to use, clearly explained, and function perfectly. The phone has a great feel to it, and I am extremely satisfied with my purchase.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not well executed
There are, at this time, exactly two 5.8 GHz 2-line expandable phone systems -- this Panasonic and the Uniden TRU8866 -- and I found it frustrating to research them because they're new and there's not much information out there. So my two cents, should it be helpful...I bought this Panasonic 6500B and three handsets, played with them for a week, and called today for an RMA number to return them. I'm now evaluating the Uniden system, which I think I'll end up keeping.

(For reference, I'm migrating from a Siemens gigaset 2420, 2-line 2.4GHz system, amazon item B00004R7R1. It's noted for a few quirks, but it's been solid for 6 years and I'd easily favor it over the Panasonic.)

Pros:
-- you only have two options at present, so this phone does deliver 2-line 5.8 GHz functionality
-- blinking antenna for ringing/message was a nice touch
-- all of the basic stuff you'd expect...intercom, speakerphone, Caller ID, etc.


Cons:
-- poor sound quality, even compared to my 2.4GHz system -- there was a constant hiss even when standing near the base, and it wasn't line noise. (There is a voice boost/voice enhancer function, though even the manual notes that it might amplify any existing line noise you may already have.)

-- one 'feature' that tilted me toward the panasonic was a 'shared' phone directory among the handsets and base. It actually works like the Siemens - you have to manually copy phonebook entries from one handset to another, so keeping them all in sync is a pain.

-- The handsets didn't behave like extensions of the same line; when you answer a call on one handset, all of the others display 'missed call', which you must then clear from EACH handset. So I always seemed to pick up a handset with a few missed calls, which were actually answered on a different handset.

-- Lack of an aux port so the phone can catch the distinctive ring and shuttle a call to the fax (btw, the Uniden doesn't have this either)

-- Misc. minor annoyances: Panasonic still uses a two-digit code for the answering machine, as it did ~15 years ago. Only eight ring tones (4 ring/4 melody), none of which were great.

-- basic interface is just crude compared to other modern phones/cell phones (I'm a techie with a UI/usability background, so I do have bias there).

Overall, I found this Panasonic to be a step down from the Siemens. I've only had the Uniden for a couple days, and I'd certainly say it's the better option of the two. ... Read more

Uniden's DXAI5188-2 cordless phone system offers a wealth of benefits--5.8 GHz analog technology, an integrated digital answering machine, caller ID and call waiting capability, as well as an additional handset. Still, the DXAI5188-2 requires only one phone jack for operation.

All call features are accessed through the phone system's handsets, including last number redial, call transfer between handsets, and convenient volume control. Each handset has a three-line backlit LCD for displaying caller information and for access to saved numbers, both of which are available even while you're taking another call. Information and menus can be displayed in your choice of English, French, or Spanish. Handsets are also compatible with most hearing aids and headsets (sold separately). The base unit and charging cradle are desk or wall mountable. This factory-refurbished model is backed by a 90-day warranty.

5-0 out of 5 stars Last reviewer wrong... this phone is great.
To the last reviewer:
You complained about incorrect information from Amazon regarding this phone. Never in Amazon's description do they mention that THIS phone has "talking caller ID". The phone with talking caller ID is the:

Panasonic KX-TG2357B 2.4 GHz DSS Cordless Phone with Dual Handsets, Answering System, and Talking Caller ID (Black). It sells for $110.19 (at the time of this review).

Please do your research and not give a GOOD phone a bad review when your reviewing the WRONG item.

THIS phone is great... and I really have enjoyed using it. It's not as fancy as some others out there, but it does the job!!

1-0 out of 5 stars NO TALKING CALLERID
I purchased this phone for the sole purpose of the "Talking" Caller ID that Amazon advertises in the description. After receiving the phone, I see NOTHING on the box or in the book that says ANYTHING about having "Talking" caller ID. I contacted the seller, and he too said he saw nothing about it. I contacted Amazon...but they don't seem to get it....that they are advertising something thats not there.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great!
This phone if GrEaT!!! it comes with plenty of features such as transfering the call to another handset. However, you can hear some staticky noise in the background while your on the phone with someone else. The range isn't that great either. If i go in my backyard, the tone starts to skip. Overall, this phone is full of features that are very useful. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great phones for the money.
I had purchased the 2.4 GHz VTech single phone, but returned it partly because of the good reviews here and I wanted 2 handsets. I'm glad I did these phones are much better. Some of the features I like:

- When you press 'On' to make a call a timer starts in the display window, and tells you how long you've been on the phone. Very handy, especially when on hold. Then, if you like, set the phone down (stand it up) and press the Intercom button. Now you're in speaker phone mode and can do other things while waiting.

- It feels good in the hand, has a solid feel. One handed dialing with thumb is easy.Volume control on the side is OK.

- The msg waiting light on the base unit is very noticeable - much more than the previous Vtech I just returned.

- Backlit keypad and display is handy at night. The Display window is very informative with various array of messages.

- The intercom-walkie talkie feature is kind of neat. The handsets can call each other. Nice around the house when you don'twant to use cell phones. While talking to each other, either phone can make an external call, and have a 3-way conversation.

- I like the default ringer tone. It's softer, warmer. I turned the ringers off other phones in the house.

- Shared phone book between handsets is smart and time saving. Changes, updates to the phone book on handset 1 are seen on handset 2, and vice versa.

- You can give each handset a unique name. The default is 'Vtech' on both. That can be changed.

People must like this phone - Amazon can't keep it in stock!

I've always been happy with Vtech phones and think the features, quality and price can't be matched by comparable brands.

1-0 out of 5 stars Third time is not a charm. Defects and lousy support.
I've given this phone more than a fair trial. I've purchased this and 5850 phones three times. (The 5850 has an answering machine but identical handsets.) All of their identical handsets have malfunctioned immediately or eventually. The first time one of the screens lost contrast and became unreadable. The last two times the handset became inoperable after being left off of the cradle for several hours. None of the buttons would respond until the phone was recradled for a moment. (This would happen even after the batteries were fully charged.)

I returned the first two for refunds, but the third time I sent a message to VTech's online "support." Their email response was: "Due to the nature of your inquiry, your request would have to be handled by a representative who will provide you with the more detailed information." But when I called the "tech support" number provided I infuriatingly discovered that they only have automated tech support when you select the support phone menu option. So, I called the sales number and the rep said they are trying out this new automated approach to "tech support." That is, they have decided to ditch genuine support.

I asked to speak to a sales supervisor and he said that they have had other complaints about the inoperable handsets. He offered to send me replacement handsets, saying that he thought they have fixed the issue. Which brings up the obvious question: why are they still permitting retailers to sell units that VTech knows have defects? I've only had this one for a week. Shouldn't those defective phones be recalled? The supervisor's only response was to chuckle nervously.

So, while these phones have good talk time and audio quality, and respectable features, I can't recommend them since they are highly prone to defects and the company has such a laughable excuse for support.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great for the first 8 months
This phone worked great with great sound for the first 8 months.Suddenly both handsets stopped taking a charge.No big deal, just replace the batteries.That worked for the main phone but the extra handset will not charge, either in the additional charger or the main charger.Haven't tracked down the problem but will keep trying.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Phones
I read all the reviews before purchasing this phone set and everything that was mentioned about it was accurate more or less.

Speaker phone is much better than I thought it would be , my wife is constantly using it, even though she claimed she did not need a phone with extra features. The second handset which just needs to be plugged in allows us to have a phone in our living room without having to run wires ...perfect!! ( I live in an old house)
Only disadvantage, which I find retarded since it appears that they put a lot of thought into this phone is the fact that you cannot add a "1" in front of a number that appears on the caller id to store in the phone book or redial out. You have to delete the whole number and re-enter it.

I was aware of this b4 purchasing the phone, read it on the reviews but still gave the phones five stars anyway.

3-0 out of 5 stars Its okay
Its just okay; 5.8G but my panasonic 2.4 has better sound quality to it. In this package you get two sets, master one and the other one. The only good thing is that the other set needs to be connected to the power socket only (no need to hook it up to the phone jack as long as the master base is hooked up) so it means you can place it anywhere in the house irrespective of having access to a phone jack nearby. Once again sound quality aint that good.
Addendum: Lately one of the handset is giving me problems; cant receive calls on this one.
PS (added after 3 months) Dont buy this set. I have learned it the hard (and expensive) way. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars so-so product
I decided to buy the v-tech phone after reading many positive reviews, but I was unimpressed with it and decided to return it.On the plus side, the hand-set speaker-phone is handy and has fairly good sound quality, and the dual hand-sets are a nice feature.However, I found the sound quality very poor - there was often a hissing noise as well as echoing.Also, the hand-sets would run out of batteries very quickly.

1-0 out of 5 stars Who designed this thing?
I haven't had the best of luck with phones, but this is bad even for me. This isn't a phone so much as a cruel practical joke. Perhaps a twisted experiment to see if people will pay good money to be tortured in their own homes by a small electronic device. A few of my favorite features include:

1. Poor sound quality
2. Intermittently cuts out
3. Randomly forgets numbers in memory and/or caller ID
4. Beeps loudly and incessantly whenever the battery runs low (usually around 3am)
5. Sounds the low battery alarm even while sitting in the charger!
6. Is interfered with by WiFi, baby monitors, or anything else at 2.4GHz
7. Occasionally refuses to dial phone numbers for no apparent reason
8. Did I mention the poor sound quality?

Buying this phone is a recipe for disaster.As for me, I'm going back to the tin can and string that worked so well when I was a kid.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't....
I purchased this set in October and here it is May, barely 7 mos. later and it has died.I should contact the company, in the meantime I went with GE and will give that a try. I will never ever purchase V-Tech again.It started with a stuttered dial tone and eventually we could not use it at all.We tried new batteries, re-setting the whole system - nothing worked.Fried.Major thumbs down.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad...
I was an owner of the Vtech model 20-2420 with two handsets and a master base. That was until recently when my rotten cat decided to chew on the end of one of the antennas. Enter my search for a replacement. I knew I wanted the exact same phone, but realized too late that the 20-2420 was discontinued. Pricing a "like new" used/or refurbished model from a stranger didn't seem to appealing, so off I went in search of another similar V-tech model. Along came the ev2625 while on an excursion to Target. I concour that the quality of plastic used on this model is not up to par with that of the 20-2420 or similar models. However, I doubt I will engage my friends and neighbors to a blindfold test and play "which phone feels like it's made of better quality plastic". I believe that part of the low price also has to do with the fact that these phones use regular rechagable batteries, instead of the expensive nimh nicads that the other models usually come with. The phone can get a little warm when sitting in the base for long periods of time, yet I don't see any harm in leaving it off the charger overnight once in a while. Sound quality does not appear to be an issue, as I have made numerous calls from this new phone with nary a "Can you hear me now?...Good" comment. The orange hue that the phone lights up to(annoying, but will get used to) reminds me of a Pontiac Bonneville STS dashboard at night. Aside from these niggling nuances, this model has everything my other model did at almost a third the price. Score!

1-0 out of 5 stars piece of crap!
well, I've had my phone roughly two weeks and at first, it was all smooth sailing. worked well.

suddenly, after a week of use, the extension refused to let me pick up the phone when it rang--I would hear no dial tone, no friend's voice, just a beep, like a busy signal.

things worsened. crazy static started to kick in. the phone will constantly ring once, than when I try to pick up nothing. or worse, it will claim the line is in use and won't disconnect for several minutes. then--happy thing--it rings just once. as it to let you know it's done. it's starting to drive me to distraction, as I'm feeling a little like a character out some psycho-thriller movie with all this crazy ringing.


I have consulted the user's manual and the vtech site for aid in getting my phones to work. neither is much help (remove the batteries?). I've removed the batteries so many times to try and resolve this, my thumbs are sore.

I have called customer service and they are apparently closed till nine in the morning on monday. I'll try and report back with good news.

or maybe I can report about the return policy? ... Read more

Designed for use with VTech's VT 5831 and i5881 expandable phone systems, the i5801 utilizes the 5.8 GHz frequency and digital spread spectrum technology, providing greater clarity and range than either 2.4 GHz or traditional 900 MHz phones.

You can also download full color images via a USB port and then associate an image with a caller ID number or set it as "wallpaper." An illuminated keypad helps you dial numbers even in the dark, while a page/handset locator makes finding a misplaced handset quick and easy. You can add up to six handsets (total) to your existing system, while an intercom function lets you communicate between handset locations.

The NiMH battery has an 8-hour talk time and 5-day standby battery life. The handset menu is easy to navigate with a five-way joystick, which provides access to the phones many features (specific features depend on the base system you're using). A handset control allows you to adjust volume levels to your liking. You can record custom ring tones from your stereo or PC as well as adjust ringer and tone settings. The i5801 comes backed with a one-year limited parts and labor warranty.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great accesory handset, no problems!
Excellent quality phone, has been used regularly for over a year with no problems.

3-0 out of 5 stars On their way out
I have the previous model that is the same but without the wallpaper. I have had for 2 years. I have noticed that they are losing quality of reception in certain areas of my home and that some buttons on the keypads I am not able to push.I too am having problems with the charger bases.I have two handsets and both will not fully charge and nor sit correctly in the base.Also in going to the vtech website I noticed that htese are on their way out and they are no longer making the additional handsets.I love the style though and wish I could find a similair style with the blue backlighting.I say find a more recent model.

1-0 out of 5 stars 3 strikes and you are out
Our third handset is on it's way out.3 dead in one year.The keypads go bad (buttons become hard to push, you have to use a pen) and the charging cradle also goes bad; you have to jiggle it just right to get it to charge.All in all the worst phones I have ever purchased.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent accessory handset
I have bought 3 of these handsets and they all work great. No interference with my wireless network as many have reported w/ base system. Downloading pictures and sound clips to the phone is very easy (simple software worked perfectly) and fun (not great quality but what do you expect). Reception on all 3 is very good with 50 number storage and intercom/speakerphone features on each phone. In summary these phones are user friendly and do what they claim.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Cool Phone
I like this phone.The reception is just as good as the regular LCD version.The pictures on the phone are not as clear they appear on the box, but they are still good.The downloadable ringtones only lasts for about 10 seconds or so and then that ten seconds of clip is repeated until phone is answered or the caller hangs up.It is easy to use and the instruction manual is helpful.All in all, I like it and I plan on keeping it. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Telephone
This is an exceptional 5.8 GHz cordless telephone.The sound quality, range, speakerphone on handsets, caller id and simplicity of use are all excellent.Having the 2 telephones means you will always have a telephone charged and ready to use when needed.The battery and standby capability both work very well.The design is both clean and aesthetically pleasing.

The only negative that I will assign to this cordless telephone is that the buttons are slightly on the small side.

If you are looking solely for a two telephone 5.8GHz system that is easy to use and secure, this is the one.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Cut Above
First, ignore the review written by "An Electronics Fan" because they discussed an answering machine in the review, and this item does NOT have an answering machine.

These phones operate perfectly.The DSS offers a phone with no interference or distortion of voices.Very clear reception, good range, and you can store 100 numbers in each headset, which is certainly sufficient for most at home purchasers.The instructions are reasonably simple and the price is not high when you consider that you have 2 phones for the price of 1.I highly recommend this item for anyone wanting to take "the next step up" with their cordless phone.

4-0 out of 5 stars Uniden 5860-2 5.8Ghz Phones - supurb sound and features
Absolutely supurb sound quality in both handsets; Caller ID + Call Waiting ID + Handset speakerphones + distinctive ringing + many other great features.

The only disappointment was the range of my phones was only about 80 feet from the base.

In spite of the range problem, I love these phones.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good pair for a good price.
Our 2.4 system (vtech) was approaching unusable due to static.I finally decided to give the 5.8 phones a try.The phones work great.Clear as a bell.The other reviews capture the qualities of these phones.

My only issues ...
There is no battery indicator.Only the battery low beep, when the battery is about to die.I've grown accustomed to some type of indicator to show me the current status.

The caller id doesn't allow for a number 1 to be added to a number that you want to return a call to.In our area, we need to dial a 1+area code to dial the next door neighbor.

The speakerphone has too much static, but I don't use that feature often.It certainly doesn't sound as good as the handset.

The base could have been designed a bit better to stand vertical.Again, not a big deal.

We can't seem to get into the habit of hitting End to finish a call.Everyone (family, friends and neighbors) taps the large Talk button again when they are done with a call and set the phone down.About a minute later you hear the sound of a phone off the hook.

Having said all that, we really like the phones.

1-0 out of 5 stars I receive this phone as a gift, and we don't use it anymore.
My parents purchased this phone for us for Christmas last year. My dad is an electronics king, and loves to research to find the "best" of everything. Well, he was misled on this phone. There was always background noise, we could never hear the people we were talking to, and they could never hear us well.
Also, the answering machine wouldn't stop playing unless we answered this phone. If we picked up any of the others in the house, it would keep playing.

We finally just bought the cheaper 2.4 model ourselves and unplugged this phone and answering machine. Now it just sits here and looks pretty for when the parents come over. I definitely don't recommend it. I feel bad that they paid so much for it and it turned out to be such a bad system. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing range
I bought this phone essentially for its announced "mega-giga-range" but was majorly disappointed. My old 900Mhz DSS phone has by far a better and longer range.
Other than that the phone is nice and sleek and easy to use.

3-0 out of 5 stars Expandability is questionable
I bought the previous model (TG5100M) less than a year ago hoping to buy handsets as I need them (I think I looked at "Panasonic for Life" logo for too long). However, both the base AND THE HANDSETS are discontinued now, and new models (TGA520M series) are incompatible with my base. So, while both the base and the handset are working fine, the chances for expandability are now zero... Beware!

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Features, Easy to Use
So far, we really like the phone, although we've been noticing some dropouts. (I'm going to switch voice enhancer off and see if that helps.) It was very easy to setup, and the display and handset are backlit, so very easy to read. Comfortable to hold, and on the ear, so if the dropouts stop ... it'll be a keeper.
I was replacing an AT&T 2.4g that we really liked, so I'm hoping this will be a winner. It's great that it came with (2) handsets.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Phone System
I recently upgraded this phone from an older Panasonic system for 2 reasons.One, I don't have enough telephone outlets in my home and this system allows me to use the handset on a standard electrical wall outlet.Two, I have a wireless cable modem that might cause interference with the older 2 GHz system.

This unit is great.It is easy to program.The instructions are simple to follow.There are wonderful features without going overboard to include "the kitchen sink".The sound quality on both ends is excellent.I have ordered another handset today that is compatible with this system which includes a clock and a radio for the nightstand.Hurry, order while this telephone is still available.You will be glad that you did.

4-0 out of 5 stars Finally, decent reception
I have been looking for a decent cordless phone since my old AT&T 9400 (900 MHz digital spread spectrum) died.That phone sounded just like a corded phone, and I never counted on having problems duplicating that experience.But I did.I tried 900 MHz models, 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz of all brands, but there were always too many dead spots and drop outs.

The KX-TG5202 (essentially a KX-TG5200 with an extra handset and charger) fixes that problem.The sound quality is as good as I've heard from any current models, and it even sports a "voice enhancement" technology which, if switched on, makes voices sounds more "realistic."In addition, each handset has a speakerphone, which gets high marks from the people I've called on the phone.

The phone has a black and white display for Caller ID information, and three "soft buttons" which change function depending on the mode the phone is in.It has all basic functionality you'd expect from a $100+ phone (backlighting, phone books, various ring tones, etc.)It doesn't go overboard, however.There is no voice dialing or voice announcement of callers, for example.

All in all, this is a good, solid phone with basic functionality and more than respectable sound quality.If you're not looking for a lot of bells and whistles, you'll love it. ... Read more


18. Panasonic KXTG2314W 2.4 GHz DSS Cordless Phone with Dual Handsets and Caller ID (White)

Amazon.com Product Description

The KX-TG2314W from Panasonic is a 2.4 GHz phone system with several useful extras, including a second handset and caller ID compatibility. By utilizing a 2.4 GHz signal and frequency-hopping spread spectrum technology, the KX-TG2314W is able to offer clearer reception at greater distances than traditional analog phones, while Panasonic's Voice Enhancer technology expands the frequency range of the phone's signal, resulting in cleaner, more intelligible speech.

The caller ID features a 30-number internal memory, while a 30-number phone directory allows you to store your most important numbers internally for easy recall. A display-and-dial feature also allows you to scroll through the caller ID and phone directory lists and dial a number with the touch of a button.

A handset speakerphone is provided, while headset compatibility and an included belt clip allow you to communicate on the phone while performing other daily tasks. An illuminated keypad makes dialing in poorly-lit environments a snap, and the second handset allows you to have telephone extensions in separate locations, without an additional phone jack. Additionally, a wall-mounting option lets you keep your countertop clear from any unnecessary clutter.

5-0 out of 5 stars Durable,Great reception and long battery life after charge
I'm very happy with all the features as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent full featured cordless system
Everything about this system is excellent.

I would also like to point out that, at least for us, the relatively large form factor has turned out to be more comfortable than smaller units that we have tried.

The speaker mode is very clear and has no feedback but, as one reviewer pointed out, better use it in a quiet room. Another minor issue. The speaker phone feature does not appear to be available if the phone is in the cradle.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great phone if you like static
This phone has so much static it is nearly useless.What a piece of junk.The other features of the phone are fine, but what good are they when all you get out of the receiver is a loud roar.Buy this phone only if you don't want to be able to hear the other party.

4-0 out of 5 stars PANASONIC 2.4GHZ DSS CORDLESS PHONE/DUAL HANDSETS
I HAVE JUST RECEIVED THESE PHONES AND SO FAR I AM QUITE IMPRESSED WITH THIS VALUE!
WHEN I SET THE UP THE SYSTEM/PHONES I WAS ABLE TO IMMEDIATELY USE THE PHONES FOR CALLS, WITH JUST ONE (1) BAR READING IN THE BATTERY CHARGING AREA.(PHONE SHOULD BE CHARGED FOR 6 HOURS ACCORDING TO PANASONIC.)
-THE ONLY ISSUE THUSFAR IS THAT THE HEARING/EAR PORTION OF THE HANDSET(S) ARE ROUNDED AND SMALLER THAN WHAT I AM USED TO WITH CORDLESS PHONES.
-I FOUND THIS TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE WHILE HOLDING THE PHONE TO MY EAR(S).
IF YOU HAVE VERY SMALL EARS YOU WILL BE FINE. HOWEVER, ADULTS/CHILDREN WHO HAVE 'AVERAGE' SIZED EARS - YOU MIGHT FEEL LIKE YOUR UPPER EAR IS BEING 'CUT' FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORD.
-A FRIEND HAS A SIMILAR CORDLESS HANDSET AND COMPLAINED ABOUT THE SAME THING. (I CANT BELIEVE I AM WRITING ABOUT EARS!) BUT...THIS IS TRUE.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Phone Reasonable Price
This has been a great phone, the reception on all three levels of our home. We love the phone-to-phone feature; I can call the 2nd floor from the basement with out having to walk up two flights of stairs. I do have two issues with the phone. One, when I talk on the phone my jaw tends to hit the keypad and of course create beeps. Two, the keypad on one of the phone has a sticky key and I don't recall ever spilling anything on it. But we are happy with the length of the battery and the reception. We've been through many phones and this one seems to be working out great. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great phone for home use
This is the second set I have gotten. This time for my mother. Works well, nice size, easy to set up second phone. Uniden is the only company I can find that gives the option of audible beeping when there is a new message. I wish the sound of the beep could be turned up a little more, but better than just a blinking light. Very happy with my first set.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice Uniden Unit
So far ive had no problems, Set up was easy, hearing is very clear, no static at all, i love the 2nd handset,Everything was easy to setup on it,and the price was great,alot of other reviews ive read they say nothing but problems, mine is great.
Thank You!

2-0 out of 5 stars It's ok....but I'm replacing it
I got this phone thinking it would be great - the extra handset is a nice feature and I like that part.I have noticed that the battery life is pretty short and once when I was talking the battery died and then my phone never "hung up" - so for 15 minutes I was without a phone and could not pick up any phone in the house to use it.This has happened two times and is soooo frustrating, especially since the other phones in the house that are corded could not be used.

You can't use the 2 phones at once so that is a bit of an inconvenience as well.The reception is ok but it has it's moments.I have had the phone for about 6 months so it's broken in and the honeymoon's over.I am going to replace it, it was a nice try to get a cheaper phone but it's been more trouble than it's worth.

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best portables I've bought
I've gone through a lot of portable phones, and especially for the price, this is by far the best.The Caller ID doesn't seem to function, but neither did the previous phone on our system. Great sound, nice having two handhelds.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great, great price
I've had this phone system for a month now & I love it.I bought the 900MHz on purpose because the 2.4GHz interferes with wireless 54g routers & I have one.To date, i'm super impressed with this phone.The sound quality is clear & the extension unit works great in my bedroom (which doesn't have a phone line).The answering system is digital so you get a little distortion (nothing like good old tape) but I can live with that.Also, the battery lasts a long, long time unlike my Vtech which dies out in 2 hours.Overall, I highly recommend this product. ...

Sales Rank: 30324

US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Amazon.com Product Description

The 2231 from AT&T is a 2.4 GHz phone that comes bundled with an extra handset and charging cradle. It also boasts several useful features, including caller ID/call waiting compatibility and an internal phone directory. The 2331 delivers clear, easily intelligible reception with less interference, thanks to transmitting on the 2.4 GHz band and employing frequency-hopping digital spread spectrum technology.

With its 50-number caller ID memory, you can see a list of all recent calls, while a 50-number phone directory helps you to keep track of all important phone numbers. A display-and-dial feature lets you scroll through the caller ID or phone directory lists and dial the displayed number simply by pressing talk. A voicemail message-waiting indicator lets you know when you have new messages (requires a subscription to a fee-based service), while the low battery-indicator lets you know when to return the handset to its cradle for recharging.

The handset LCD menu can be set to one of three language (French, English, or Spanish), and handset and ringer controls allow you to adjust volume levels to your liking. A handset speakerphone combines with headset compatibility to provide hands-free communication options, while an illuminated keypad makes dialing in poorly lit environments a snap. The intercom function lets you communicate with the other handset, and a conferencing feature allows you to speak with multiple parties at once. The redial button lets you easily dial any of the last five outgoing numbers, and the any-key answer function lets you pick up a call by pressing any of the handset buttons. The 2231 also comes backed by a one-year warranty.

3-0 out of 5 stars A lot of great features, but battery power sucks!
This phone has excellent features, including volume controls for the ringer and the handsets themselves, 2 handsets (an excellent idea), the ability to use the handsets as walkie talkies (haven't tried this yet), a 50-number phone book for storing numbers, caller ID, and notification of voice mail (those last 2 only if you're subscribed to the phone services--not for notification of an answering machine message). It feels great in my hand and comes with belt clips and headphone holes. I think that's useful because i hate speakerphone (it also has that), but want to be mobile while speaking.

I have an AT&T answering machine and it's incredibly durable so i hope this will last a long time as well. I left the handsets off the chargers after completely charging them (the manual says 12 hours minimum, i made it 24 to be safe). I used one of them only twice during this time and that one was completely discharged after only 2 days. Since my conversations were not more than about 20 minutes each, most of that time was spent with the phones just sitting around. I'd call that bad charge retention. The other handset seems to be almost fully charged so I guess this only happens when you use them at all.

My cell phone only loses power that quickly if i actually use it a lot. Cordless phone makers should move away from NiMH and replace them with the longer-lasting LiIon batteries. ... Read more
