5-0 out of 5 stars Tried them all...this is the only one I kept
I have tried all the 5.8mhz 2 line phones. None really cut it in the quality/distance specs. This is a great performer for the price and I paid much more than what it is selling for now.

Pros:Read the other reviews and save me the time...they are all good and I put 8 hours a day on mine and after 9 months it is still going strong.Things I like are good display, best distance of the 3 phones I tried, easy to use without a long read of the manual, and great drop performance.I have dropped this phone many times from counter height to my hardwood or concrete floors with no ill affects.The belt clip is a great design and will not come off. The phone contacts are the best design I have seen as they always make a connection even if the phone is tilted.Having individual phone books is nice except if you syc them with the base you loose your individuality.Not one performance problem.I did order a 3rd handset a few weeks ago and the display was different (a later "imnproved" model)but I noticed a hum/hiss that was not on the other original hansets and did not exist on them when in the same location.I have returned this for exchange.

Cons: Like all 5.8mhz sets this one has limited range but a good 100 through walls.50 feet if you included an aluminum sided wall. Volume could be higher...what is it with all these phone people...they just can put enough volume in anything whether it be cell phone or wireless handset. Headset also left something to be desired.In ability to add just one contact to the general phone directory, in ability to use speaker phone on intercom mode.I just wish there was someway to push a little more distance out....

2-0 out of 5 stars Good phone - shame about the speakerphone.
Got this phone to work from home, along with 4 of my colleagues. The phone offers a very comprehensive set of features. We were also told it would work ok with a wireless network.

The phone is difficult to use from the base station. The numbers are so close together it's easy to punch the wrong button. I guess that's the price you pay for having a small footprint, which the phone certainly has.

The biggest problem we are finding is with the base unit. The speakerphone on the base cuts out, meaning large parts of conversations are missed. If it was just my phone I would have tried swapping it, but it's three different phones being used in three different houses.

Uniden support suggested this was probably due to phone placement. They say the phone should be at least 5-6 feet away from electrical appliances. We're using the phones for work, which means within a few feet of a laptop computer. This seems to be the only common cause of the problem - unless the phones just have a flaw, but nobody else seems to have reported problems with the base unit speakerphone.

It seems very odd that the problem is only with the base unit. I would have thought electrical interference (from a laptop) should affect the handset more, since it's wireless, rather than the wired base unit. That doesn't seem to be the case.

One of my colleagues also reported 'garbled messages' when using voicemail. Interesting to see other comments here about voicemail not working.

The phone probably offers the best set of features compared to other similar phones. Unfortunately the speaker phone problem is proving to be such a pain we're contemplating our options for returning the phones - hence only a 2 star rating.

3-0 out of 5 stars Very Nice - apart from the echo on line 2
I have the same echo-like sound when using the phone on line 2 as a previous reviewer described.I had read that review prior to purchasing the phone but didn't believe it.I wish I had.That said, only 1 of my 2 handsets has a bad enough echo that I don't like talking on it.Both handsets work great for line 1 - really clear sound and no echo.As with the other reviewer I swapped lines, phones, and various other combos but got consistent results.Uniden tech support had me do a "reset" of the phones and base unit - to no avail.They said a repair is the next step.

It's too bad, the phone has great features, feels nice, and all that.I'm not sure if I'll purchase the Panasonic (I've had bad luck with several of their phones) or try to keep swapping additional handsets hoping to get ones that don't echo.I don't use line 2 a lot so can get by for awhile.

The only other feature I didn't like was that the caller-id info is saved on each phone.If I want to delete a caller-id log record, I have to go to the base, its handset, and my extra handset and deleted from each one.Otherwise it shows "New CID" on the handsets as if there is a call needing attention.Something I'll just have to ignore because it's a nuisance going to each phone to delete them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great phone system
We have six of these handsets in our home, for over six months, and they work great! The sound quality, range, and battery life are superior to every other cordless phone I have ever used. The feature set is very well thought out, and the phones are extremely easy to use.

1-0 out of 5 stars poor sound quality
This phones has great features,but very poor sound quality. Mostly sounds like you're in a tunnel even when in the same room as the base. The range is also extremely poor. Bought an extention to add on and can't use it in the next room without constantly cutting out. All in all, this phone stinks. ... Read more

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


3. Panasonic KXTG4000B 2.4 GHz DSS 4-Line Cordless Phone with Caller ID and Voicemail

Amazon.com Product Description

Give your small business or home the productivity-enhancing features of a business telephone system without the high price tag. The KX-TG4000B four-line cordless telephone system accommodates up to eight handsets, while the all-digital voice mail system with auto attendant can be occupied by up to four users simultaneously. And dual caller ID with call waiting lets you see who's calling on either line.

The KX-TG4000B base unit and each cordless handset communicate in both directions using 2.4 GHz frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) transmission. FHSS technology improves calling range and clarity, and eliminates crosstalk. Because it rapidly changes transmission frequencies within the 2.4 GHz bandwidth, this cordless system helps reduce the possibility of eavesdropping.

The KX-TG4000B operates via cordless transmissions, so no expensive (and messy) wiring or installation is required. Simply hook up the base to your phone lines and plug it into an AC outlet. Then, set up the included KX-TGA400B handset in the desired location and plug in the recharging stand. Up to seven more optional KX-TGA400B handsets can be added to the system.

The convenient, reliable, all-digital voice mail includes many advanced features. The KX-TG4000B offers a general delivery mailbox on the base unit, plus up to eight personal mailboxes--one for each handset. Each user can record a personal greeting, and can access individual mailboxes from any system handset or an outside line. You can set the voice mail system to automatically answer all incoming calls with a recorded greeting, and to route callers to a desired extension or mailbox. The KX-TG4000B allows for four separate voice paths, so four system users can access voice mail at once.

This phone system also includes a digital duplex speakerphone with an eight-step volume control. Digital circuitry in the base unit helps reduce echo and the dropout effect for more natural-sounding conversations.

Dual caller ID with call waiting lets you view the name and number of all incoming callers on either the base unit or handset LCD--even if you're already on the line. This caller ID feature also stores up to 50 names on the base unit (up to 30 names on each handset), with direct callback capability. And thanks to caller ID pager call, you can even program the phone to notify your pager when you've received an incoming call, and to forward caller ID data to your pager's display. (Subscription to caller ID services is required.)

Other features includetwo-way intercom/paging, lighted handset keypad, headset jack in the handset, and a belt clip. The handset offers up to eight hours of talk time and up to 96 hours of standby battery life. ... Read more

Features

  • 2-way intercom/paging, lighted handset keypad, headset jack
  • 2.4 GHz digital spread spectrum operation
  • Supports 4 lines; expands to 8 handsets
  • Caller ID/call waiting with 50-call history on base, 30 on handset
  • 100-minute voicemail system with auto attendant and 8 mailboxes

2-0 out of 5 stars Bad handsets a major problem
We have used this system in a business for almost two years.Nearly every handset we have purchased is defective out of the box or shortly thereafter.The major problem is poor sound -- you can hardly hear the caller.With other units, the caller can't hear you.Out of the five handsets we're currently using (all out of warranty) one is good, three are so-so, and one is very bad.We're hoping to find an alternative, but need at least three lines.

1-0 out of 5 stars -2 STARSWORST $600.00 INVESTMENT EVER!!!!
Our office has had this system for two weeks.One handset has already gone bad and another keeps giving a message to move closer to the base unit.Funny thing is, you can be within a foot of the base unit and no reception.We are going to try the Motorola MD681 for half the price of the Panasonic.I'll Let you know about that later.

4-0 out of 5 stars Has flaws but a lot for the money
I've been using this system in a busy office for five years now.True,there are some annoying flaws you should know before buying.. Among them: no mute buttons, handset touch tone buttons that wear out easily,the need to buy extra handsets to set up extra voice mailboxes, lousy sound quality on the autoattendant outgoing message, no way to change the automated attendant remotely.But in general, the system does what they say it will do and it does it reliably.Once you get the hang of it, it's easy to set up.And you get the business functions, autoattendant, intercom, voicemail, remote access, etc, without having to pay a reseller thousands of dollars.There aren't a lot of products like this one.I hope it stays on the market.

2-0 out of 5 stars There is an alternative...
One person mentioned that this system was the "only game in town". Not true.

CentrePoint Technologies's TalkSwitch is a great alternative. If you purchase the Panasonic with a few extensions ($600+), you could easly own this unit for a comparable price. And it has more features, is much more versatile, and uses your existing equipment.

1-0 out of 5 stars WORST PHONE I EVER BOUGHT
I have purchased TWO Panasonic 4 line phone systems for my business. One was for our office in NY and one for our office in IL. I bought both systems through the Hello Direct website.

The #1 that you press on the hand set does not work. It is defective on ALL of our 6 hand sets that we own. This means we CAN NOT use the phone to dial out on long distance calls that need the use of the one.

We had bought and used the first system and then bought another system before we began the issues of the #1 not working. The first system in NY was the one to experience this problem , at first.

I proceeded to call the Panasonic GA office and they also would not deal with the issue.

At this point, now BOTH systems are incapable of being used. All we can do is just dial from the base and then pick up the line on the handset.

Today, we called cusomer service and spoke to Chris Cabutaje, a supervisor, and he told us there was nothing he could do. He even admitted there was a problem with this phone but still did nothing.

I think this is an outrage that a company this big cannot stand behind its product. ... Read more

Product Description

Following the success of 900 MHz frequency phones, 2.4 GHz phones transmit at even a higher frequency. If you already own one or more 900 MHz telephones, consider a 2.4 GHz model when you are looking to add an additional cordless telephone. Many 2.4 GHz phones can transmit greater amounts of data than lower-frequency units. VTech calls this greater bandwidth. One advantage of greater bandwidth is the ability to link multiple handsets to a single base unit.Add this expansion handset/charger to your base unit to turn your cordless telephone into a multi-handset system. Imagine, up to 4 cordless phones with only one phone jack! Features include call waiting ID, 50 name-and-number phone book directory and handset speakerphone. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Great features; not so great durability
Phone has good sound quality in handset and speakerphone mode, great range from base station, easy to use presets and other dialing functions.However, many of the keys have already become somewhat lame.They now require you to press very hard; I have missed more than one call because the on/answer button simply would not respond no matter how hard I pressed it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good and not so good
This phone system met our needs perfectly (two lines, no messaging system, speaker phone, multiple handset capability) and from that point of view its been a really good phone.However, the keypads on the handsets have become problematic:you have to really press hard to get a number to register and when you do you often get multiples of the one number you're trying to type.

5-0 out of 5 stars Also Works With VTech 20-2489 System.
This VTech 20-2420 Accessory Handset also works with the VTech 20-2489 Expandable Phone system.

The 20-2489 system is identical to the VTech 20-2481 Expandable Phone system, except that the 20-2489 system has a 20-2420 handset (with stand/charger) included in the box, for a total of *two* handsets, instead of just one.

5 stars because it works well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone system
This is a terrific, well-priced, and reliable phone. Reception is clear, battery life is adequate and it is simple to use. I have tried many, more expensive systems and the v-tech 2 line is the best. Additional phones can be added seamlessly and you do not need an outlet in every room. The answering machine can be acceseed from any handset and the paging functions work quite well. I now have 5 phones using 2 lines on the system and am very pleased.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Great
The expandable two line phone solved all our phone problems. It has been very reliable and I have added to the system so we now have four phones plus the base. A good buy. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Good phone but zero battery life
Before I mention some of the phone's good qualities, I must state that I too have horrible battery life. This phone, even after replacing the battery, will only stay on for 10-20 minutes. If you leave it off the charger overnight, the next day it will be dead.

The phone, when it does work, has good sound quality during calls. The plastic buttons are large but they are too smooth and slippery. I would prefer a more silicone-like material and grip to them.Menu system is easy to use.If it weren't for that major battery problem, this could be a 4 or 5 star phone.This phone should come w/ a corded phone to use while your phone is charging.

1-0 out of 5 stars I wish I had read these reviews before I spent the MONEY!!!!
It seems as though most of the people that wrote a review have the same exact problem that I have had with our phone... I researched this purchase thoroughly, and felt that even though it was very expensive, it had all the things we needed in a phone for our home. Soon after setting it up (within 3 months of purchase) we began having problems with the phone keeping a charge. We were going to buy a new battery, but decided to call panasonic customer service to see if they had any information about it. Pat answers... the said that they would send us a new battery and that should solve the problem. We waited and waited and waited, no battery came so we called and called and called...now we had to leave our information on a service and someone would get back to us, no one did.... still no battery!!! I couldn't believe it and I was so sick of the situation I went online to see if I could get some answers there... I was sure there had to be some type of recall or something, I mean this thing didn't work!Within 24 hours a tech emailed me back saying that I should send the unit back to Panasonic and they would check it out, if there was a problem they would send me a new (refurbished) unit, since it was under warranty (covered for the first year, which if you think about it is really rediculous, shouldn't it work for at least a few years?) I decided to send it in. I had to pay to send it to Texas, and there was a problem, (I was relieved, at least there was something they could do about it!) so they sent me a whole new system (refurbished!)... the new (refurbished!) unit only comes with a 90 day warranty, which is about how long it took for the problems to arise again... within a few months, the phone began to cut out after about 20 minutes of use, and now, it barely holds a charge for more than afew minutes... I have also had the same problem with the display saying to move closer to base, when I have been standing right in front of it... so basically it is worthless... the worst part? I still need a phone and this is the only one that has all the options we need... so I called Panasonic and I emailed them too, they said that for a charge (not cheap) they will look at it and see what is wrong.... etc, basically the same thing as before, are they kidding? I won't be buying from Panasonic ever again... I was pissed off before when it was just my phone, but knowing that so many people are having the exact same problem really is aggravating. I can't believe that they do not stand byt their product and I have no confidence in their company as a result. I will never, ever buy from Panasonic again!!
I wouldn't if I were you either!

2-0 out of 5 stars Nice features, terrible battery, quality problems
Had this phone for 1.5 years. Like features, i.e. directory that can be shared and sent across the base unit and a handset or ability to correct a number before dialing it (like in a cell phone).

From the very beginning battery life was a problem. It was around 1-1.5 hour talk time. Do not even think about having a conference call with this phone. It got worse and worse and currently I get ~30-40 min. talk time after charging for more than a day. My very old 900MHz Uniden gives me around 5-6 hours of talk time.

Sometime after using a phone for ~6 months LCD display on the handset started failing when the battery is fully charged. After talking on the phone for a few minutes display starts working again. The problem is that you need display when you are dialing.

The sound quality is OK. It is not better than analog 900Mhz Uniden but not worse.

I was pleasantly surprised than I do not get any interference with WiFi 802.11 B/G network.

Very disappointed in quality of implementation even though like features in this 2-line phone.

4-0 out of 5 stars GREAT PHONE SYSTEM, one MAJOR failing
I love it, but- today I discovered, you cannot change the outgoing (greeting) messaging from remote access.

I needed to put in a temp message, and it's just not possible from anywhere but at the base/at home...

2-0 out of 5 stars Bad batteries small display
Worked (OK) for a couple months. Batteries got progressively short charge. Display is so small and poorly lit. Tried to contact tech support - no response. Hard to find a good pickle! ... 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. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Aggravating Phone
If it even tips over a little bit on your desk, and falls, just from a standing position to laying down on your desk, the battery pops out the phone dies, and your phone call is gone. What ever happen to AT&T quality?

2-0 out of 5 stars A Big Disappointment
I have to say this phone did not live up to my expectations.Though 2.4 GHz was state of the art when I bought it, its range was actually less than my previous phone.There were parts of my apartment where the signal broke up, and it's not that big an apartment.Also, when you clip the phone to your belt then unclip it, the battery pops out, cutting off your phone call.Now the battery won't stay in at all so it won't hold a charge, and I am forced to buy another handset unit even though I don't even like this phone!Steer clear of this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Phone for Office
I use this phone at work.It works great. Volume, caller ID, redial are all working well.Battery stays charged even when I forget to put it on the base when I leave at night. The battery life display is very helpful! We do not have a wireless net work so I can't speak for that type of interference but it sits next to my printer, under the copier/fax and next to my desk with my computer and it's clear as a bell.You can't get too far (go outside to the parking lot) away from the base but isn't that true of all of the portables?

5-0 out of 5 stars Like it enough to buy more handsets!
Bought this phone several months ago, and now I'm ordering more of the expandable handsets as my other 2-line phones wear out.It works great....and I really like how the handsets take up little space and only need an electric outlet.You can even put them in the bathroom!!!Great product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Does everything I hoped and more
We have three of these handsets to go with the answering machine/base.We use them all over the house as phones and intercom.You can call any handset from any other handset.Has redial memory like a cell, use the arrow keys to find the last few numbers you called from that handset.Easily listen to messages from any handset.All this and we didn't read the manual!Who knows what other features are lurking... ...

    My son gave my daughter and me this four line V-Tech system.It is great.You can carry one phone around with you while the others are on the bases so you don't have to run to the phone when it rings.We had a cordless phone, but these phones are small.If you misplace one, you can call it and find it by its chirping.Also, if I need to reach my daughter, I can call her through this system.You can store phone numbers, redial, look to see whom you called.It has so many features that I don't think we found them all.

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

Amazon.com Review

The Uniden EXS9966 two-line cordless phone helps organize your busy family or home office. It supports two lines, three- and four-way conference calling, and caller ID with call waiting--all in an easy-to-operate unit.

Before testing the Uniden EXS9966, we charged it for the recommended 15 to 20 hours, which is longer than most rechargeable batteries require. A spare handset battery (not included) can be charged in the base. A laminated quick guide is included for convenient reference to basic phone operations.

In our tests of the Uniden EXS9966, we were able to take the phone outside over 700 feet from the base before detecting any voice breakup. Although the range was impressive, we did notice a slight background humming even at close range, but it wasn't excessively distracting. We were able to take the phone behind walls and near electronic equipment without losing signal strength.

With the additional keypad on the base, the handset and the base can be used at the same time on separate lines. If the handset is already in use on one line, you can use the base station to make or receive calls on the other line. Indicators let you know which line is in use. The controls that operate these features are intuitive.

The sturdy handset has a lighted keypad and LCD. The conference and intercom buttons allow you to add a third or fourth party to a conversation. To add a party to line one, press the hold button, press the line two button, and dial the number of the person you want to include. To bring the first person back into the conversation, press the conference button. A fourth person, at either the handset or base, can also join your conversation.

You can store up to 40 speed-dial numbers in memory. We were easily able to store a number using the LCD and arrow keys on the handset. To dial a stored number, we pressed the memory button, found the number on the LCD, and selected a line. The handset's LCD also provides caller ID information, if you subscribe to caller ID or caller ID with call waiting. You can position the handset face up on the base for convenient caller identification on both lines. The EXS9966 also has a generous 80-number caller ID log. --Emily Bakko

Pros:

  • Allows 3- or 4-way conversations
  • Sturdy construction and intuitive layout
  • Laminated quick guide included
Cons:
  • Slight background humming
  • Ringer can only be set to high or low

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Panasonic's Best
Positives? Good cordless sound quantity even at greater distances.

Negatives? The mic on the speaker-phone is reported as sounding like I'm speaking through a long tunnel, there is no MUTE on the speaker-phone, battery talk-time is only about 90 to 120 minutes daily, and saving numbers into the directory is much hardware than their older single-line cordless phones.

4-0 out of 5 stars Battery life issues are strange, but can be avoided
I recently acquired a 2.4Ghz Panasonic cordless phone after seeing one my parents have had the last 5 months and being very impressed with the features. I wanted to post this because I've seen the many reviews complaining of poor battery life.

My question for all the people experiencing problems: Did you leave the phone charging on the base unit while you weren't using it? If so, you should understand this. For whatever reason, these phones appear to be counterintuitively designed so that the battery lasts longer when NOT left on the base unit.

And in fact, my owner's manual for model KXZ-TG2355 states this under the Battery Information section: "If the battery is fully charged, you do not have to place the handset on the base unit until 'Recharge battery' is displayed and/or [the battery indicator] flashes. This will maximize battery life."

So although this is a very strange way of designing a phone, it regardless is not something Panasonic doesn't address in its manual, and therefore it can be avoided. Don't leave the phone charging until it needs it! I hope this review will help balance the many complaints from people who advise against getting these phones because their batteries have inexplicably gone dead.

2-0 out of 5 stars LISTEN TO THE BATTERY WARNINGS - I DIDN'T !
Owning an electronics firm, I didn't think I had to pay attention to the Reviews warning of battery problems. However, within three months, I experienced a short battery life that finally diminished to less than 12 hours. The people who rave about the phone, DIDN'T wait long enough to see the problem. I called Panasonic and they sent me another battery, but this one died in the same manner. Now it is my opinion, that Panasonic, a ver smart company, KNOWS about this problem, and it is in EVERY one of these phones. There are only three possible problems: 1) the batteries are no good. or 2) the charging circuit or handset circuit is defective in EVERY board they put in, or 3) the design is faulty and draws too much current. It is also my opinion, that Panasonic is trying to get you OUTSIDE of your Warranty period so you don't have a claim. Anyways, heed the WARNINGS and 1) Don't buy the phone, or 2) If you have already bought it, return it or tell Panasonic you want a DIFFERENT model replacement, and if need be, issue a chargeback on your Credit Card.

2-0 out of 5 stars LISTEN TO THE BATTERY WARNINGS BELOW- I DIDN'T!!
Owning an electronics firm, I discounted the stories of battery problems as described below. Howver, within three months I experienced the phone going dead after only a few hours. A call to Panasonic got them to send me another battery, but, get this, they don't have a heavier duty battery available. Well, this battery developed the same problem,and, it is my opinion, that Panasonic tries to get you beyond the Warranty period. There are three possible problems with the phone: 1) it draws too much current and the battery is not heavy duty enough to last. or 2) the Handset circuit is defective and draws too much current, or 3) the charging circuit is defective in these phones. This isNOT an isolated problem, but apparently is either a mass production circuit board problem or a design flaw. Panasonic is a smart company-they know about this. MY ADVICE: Don't Buy it, or if you already did, make sure Panasonic doesn't delay you so that your Warranty expires. I will keep you posted as to what I find that is an electronic problem, but I wanted to warn you NOW so others won't waste their money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Battery is AWFUL and phone too complicated
I've had this phone for over a year and the battery life is awful.It has a very short battery life; it will go dead during a conversation even though the handset says it is fully charged.It is also too complicated and scrolls through the menu very slowly.Panasonic's customer service was poor.This phone is a waste of money. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Save your money!
I purchased this phone from SAM's Club - the one they sell is actually the 2489 which comes w/ an extra handset.The phones have great features, but the handsets are terrible.The sound quality comes and goes and sometimes when you try to turn the phone on it gives you a "system busy" message.

The speakerphone quality is pretty good and feature-wise the phone is great.If you're looking for a good cordless phone, this is not it!

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money
Don't waste your money on this phone.I bought the base unit and 2 added extensions.The instructions on the registration of the auxiliary phones omitted several steps.The base phone instructions don't even explain how to use call waiting, a pretty basic function popular since the 80's.Customer service leaves you on hold for 20 minutes, and they can't help you since they have never even seen the phone.They are just reading the same, truncated instructions you are!Maybe VTech should realize that the best advertising is word of mouth.Don't bother with this system.

3-0 out of 5 stars Caller ID?
I liked this phone when I got it but am in the process of sending back the second one I purchased.The caller ID feature works on one line but not on the other.The company's help line was worthless, didn't even know how to turn off call screening.I tried everything they suggested, unplugging, taking out the battery, unplugging other two-line phones in the house that had caller ID, etc.Nothing worked.The company was very good about sending another phone but that one didn't work either.It's a shame because the ability to access the answering machine from the additional handsets was a big plus.

Voice quality was only fair, and I sometimes got a clicking sound when talking on the phone that was annoying to me and the people I was talking to.Still, I would have kept the phone for the ability to access the answer machine, the speaker phone in the base, and the light weight of the handset if it hadn't been for the malfunctioning caller ID.

Update:The company has finally admitted that the caller ID on the second line of the phones just doesn't work.They are trying to fix it and will give me a new phone when they do.In the meantime I am stuck with a phone that doesn't do what I need it to do.I have ordered an AT&T phone system but just learned that AT&T owns V-Tech so this system will probably turn out to have the same problem.It infuriates me that the company knows this is a problem but still sells the phone promising it will show caller ID, and not just on one line!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great phone system
This is a terrific, well-priced, and reliable phone. Reception is clear, battery life is adequate and it is simple to use. I have tried many, more expensive systems and the v-tech 2 line is the best. Additional phones can be added seamlessly and you do not need an outlet in every room. The answering machine can be acceseed from any handset and the paging functions work quite well. I now have 5 phones using 2 lines on the system and am very pleased.

1-0 out of 5 stars echo, static, poor mic volume
When using the handset there is an intermittent reverberation. When using my plantronics headset, which has performed well for 3 years with a different phone, people complain of poor mic volume and/or static. They keep asking if I am on a cell phone.

Its going back. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The 40-2421 from VTech is a four-line, multi-user expandable phone system designed for the small office or busy home. It consists of a base unit, which supports up to four phone lines, and one cordless handset. As your needs grow, you can add up to 11 model VT 40-2420 handsets, for a total of 12. Each handset/charger stand can be placed anywhere you have a power outlet, eliminating the need for additional phone jacks and complicated wiring procedures. The intercom feature lets you communicate with other handsets, while the call transfer function provides a convenient way to route incoming calls from one handset to another. The conference feature allows you to communicate with multiple outside parties, or conference-in an additional handset.

The 40-2421 utilizes 2.4 GHz digital spread spectrum technology, which provides clearer reception over larger distances than traditional cordless phones operating on lower bands and transmitting an analog signal. Call-waiting and caller ID compatible, the phone stores up to 50 numbers in memory, while the speed dial feature lets you quickly dial the 20 most frequently used numbers. A headset jack and handset speakerphone offer comfortable hands-free options.

Handset and ringer volume controls are provided, as are both tone and pulse dialing modes. With the auto pick-up setting turned on, you can answer calls simply by removing the handset from its cradle. A visual voicemail message indicator alerts you when you have messages waiting. (Voicemail, call waiting, and caller ID require subscriptions through your local phone company.) The 40-2421 comes backed by a one-year limited warranty on both parts and labor.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nice idea, poor implementation
We've been very happy with our VTech 2431 single-line 2.4MHz
phone system for the past few years, so now that we have
three lines this looked like just the right thing.
Unfortunately this system appears to have been designed by a
completely different team.The handsets are very large (too
large to fit into a pocket), the menus are more difficult to
use, the speed-dial feature is extremely clumsy, and the
signal quality is very poor, with lots of hissing in the
background.We've sent this one back and replaced it with a
two-line VTech 20-2431 system, which is much more like the
original 2431 and doesn't suffer from the problems of the
40-2421 series.

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money
Discounting other negative reviews here, I went ahead and purchased this phone several months ago.A pretty little phone it is.And relatively easy to get up and running.BUT unless you a real phone "techie" and familiar with multiple menus and cursoring back and forth and up and down, this is not the phone to buy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Battery problems are strange, but avoidable
I recently acquired a 2.4Ghz Panasonic cordless phone after seeing one my parents have had the last 5 months and being very impressed with the features. I wanted to post this because I've seen the many reviews complaining of poor battery life.

My question for all the people experiencing problems: Did you leave the phone charging on the base unit while you weren't using it? If so, you should understand this. For whatever reason, these phones appear to be counterintuitively designed so that the battery lasts longer when NOT left on the base unit.

And in fact, my owner's manual for model KXZ-TG2355 states this under the Battery Information section: "If the battery is fully charged, you do not have to place the handset on the base unit until 'Recharge battery' is displayed and/or [the battery indicator] flashes. This will maximize battery life."

So although this is a very strange way of designing a phone (or a battery), it regardless is not something Panasonic doesn't address in its manual, and therefore it can be avoided. Don't leave the phone charging until it needs it! I hope this review will help balance the many complaints from people who advise against getting these phones because their batteries have inexplicably gone dead.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best phones on the market!
I, too, think this phone is terrific.Crisp, clear connections, sleek design, and all the latest features.I would prefer if it had an on/off switch, but other than that, I can't say enough great things about it.I'm actually purchasing a second one for our home!

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Panasonic 2 line cordless phone!
I am very surprised to read negative reviews for this phone. I have had it for over a year and have been completely satisfied. Even my elderly parents with poor hearing say they hear me great when I speak on this phone. Just be sure to place it back on the docking station after you complete your calls, so it can recharge. I highly recommend this phone.

1-0 out of 5 stars Does not have the Range
I bought this phone and returned it within 14 days.The range of the handset is VERY limited.The handset started loosing its signal 20 feet from base!Made any type of mobility with the handset useless unless are in the same room as the base.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this phone
We bought two of these phones for our home office. They are terrible! When both phones are being used at the same time, they interfere with each other. There is very poor outgoing sound quality- our customers were constantly asking us to repeat ourselves. Also, the range on these phones is very poor. Whenever I would step outside of the room with the base, a clicking noise would start. This phone may be ok if you only need one (although it doesn't sound like it based on other reviews), but I would not get this phone if you need two.

5-0 out of 5 stars buying another
I've had great luck with this phone, good battery life and reception, small and light.

1-0 out of 5 stars How did this get past quality control?
We have this phone in our small business office, and it is without question the worst phone I have had the displeasure of using.I recognize that there are a number of sources of interference on the fifth floor of our office building, but the static is aweful.Even sitting less than two feet from the receiver there is static.Outgoing sound, as mentioned by other reviewers, is also poor.We are going to switch back to our (very) old phone because this unit is truly unbearable.It is mind-boggling that the folks at GE have actually put this device in the hands of real customers. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Not What Expected!!!
I bought two of these phones ,after a month in one phone i had problems like ,Static And button problem, and in the other one i am having the battery problem, i have to keep the handset on the base all the time.
not worth spending $$$ for this Cheap phone,
definitly not what expected.

3-0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for
I have had this phone for about a year and a half. It's not a bad phone, works solidly, and you can't beat the price. Would I get it now? Definitely not. My issues with this phone:

1) Button response is slow (Can't press "on" and immediately dial a number, for instance).

2) No voice mail indicator.

3) No headset speakerphone.

4) Unit ships with NiCd battery, which dies faster than you can sneeze. I bought a NiMH battery from Staples and it's been fine ever since.

5) Looks aren't as nice as some other phones, it's also a bit larger and heavier than most.

6) Range could be better.

Reception is terrible - lots of interference. Battery life is just awful. Lasted about 1.5 hrs when first bought, now, 4 months later, lasts 30 min. BIG WASTE OF MONEY.

1-0 out of 5 stars Wish I had read the reviews before purchasing
I bought this phone for my home office.I had a Panasonic I really liked, but it was lacking a mute button.Since I work from home, I spend quite alot of time on conference calls, using the speakerphone.I wanted to have a mute button so I could do things while listening.The speakerphone on this phone is AWFUL.It fades in and out, making it virtually impossible to hear what's going on, even with maximum volume.Don't waste your money!

Step up the pace with a two-line Uniden EXI2926 cordless telephone-speakerphone with call waiting and caller ID. You decide whether to interrupt your work to answer an incoming call. Special features include intercom and page, a 50-number caller ID memory, and a large, clear backlit LCD.

The EXI2926 provides dual dialing and displays on both handset and base. The unit's memory is programmable to 40 speed-dial numbers with one-touch connections. Caller ID remembers the last 50 incoming calls, displaying the caller's name, number, date, and time of each call. Incoming calls are stored in memory with a three-line display for information that is clear and easily readable.

You'll appreciate the independence of a speakerphone to allow unrestricted and hands-free movement when placing and answering calls, especially since this model is headset compatible. With adjustable volume control, intercom, and paging to recover the misplaced handset, the phone is designed for your desk or for convenient wall mounting. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great phone except for one problem
This is a great phone.It had all the features I was looking for -- 2 lines, conf, call waiting, call id, transfer, mute, headset jacks, volume, ringer on/off.The only problem is that you cannot turn off the ringer on the handset.If your talking on one line and another call comes through on the other, it rings loudly in your ear.I called Tech Support and you cannot turn this off -- only to hi or low volume (and 'low' isn't that low).If it weren't for this, I'd recommend it highly.

1-0 out of 5 stars Cannot recommend it
After less than one year, I am shopping for a new phone.The handset does not work anymore.I replaced the battery thinking that was the problem but it wasn't.When I click on one of the lines, there is either no sound at all, no dial-tone or anything OR it is just static and fuzz.

I hope my next phone lasts longer than this one did!

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a good desk phone!
I bought this phone with the intention of using it in my home office.The caller-id function is very important to me.Unfortunately, the phone lays to flat for you to see the caller-id display or read the keypad.Also, speakerphone volume is really loud, even when turned all the way down.I am taking this phone back.

1-0 out of 5 stars A terrible phone
I bought this phone lastChristmas and within two months the handset quit working unless you bang it on something. It also will not hold a charge.What a waste of money!

3-0 out of 5 stars clear phone
You might not like the price on this, no matter how low the sale is, but you will see it all worth it when it arrives.If you find it hard to hear the other line walking around your house, then I suggest you move.This phone is so clear, when your in the same room with it's charger, it will seem as if you are actully in the same room with your chatter. ...

Product Description

The KX-TG2000B is a full telephone system capability on 2 separate telephone lines. The base master unit and each cordless handset communicate in both directions using Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) Digital transmission for secure, ultra clear conversations. Up to 8 cordless handsets can be used in this system offering many PBX functions without wiring as in conventional small telephone systems.The KX-TG2000B base unit houses an all-digital voice mail system that provides one general delivery mailbox and up to 8 personal mailboxes, with a total recording time of 100 minutes. Each mailbox has its own individual greeting and can be accessed from any of the cordless handset stations. Incoming calls to the KX-TG2000B are efficiently handled with the auto attendant feature, which answers incoming calls and then routes the callers to the base unit or the desired handset, Voice prompts and time/date stamps, like those featured on larger business phone systems, make the KX-TG2000B's voice mail easy to use for callers and users alike. The KX-TG2000B allows 4 handsets to access voice mail at the same time or the base unit and 3 handsets at the same time. This system can also allow two handsets to make outside calls while two additional handsets access voice mail. Many other cordless phone systems answering devices permit only one "voice path", so that a second line trying to access voice mail would get a busy signal. ... Read more

  • Operates on 2 phone lines; expands to 8 handsets
  • Remote message and mailbox access from any handset
  • 2.4 GHz digital frequency-hopping spread spectrum technology
  • Speakerphone, base keypad, caller ID, and intercom
  • All-digital answering system

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst PHONE ever!!!!
I purchased this phone in May 2004 - I have had nothing but problems with the unit and handsets.Panasonic states the base unit most be situated in a room with out a computer or 9 feet away from the closest one in order to not get garbly staticy reception on the handsets - wonder what office doesn't have a computer near a phone??Low and behold you move the base unit away from the computers and the handsets still are garbled.Panasonic now states to reset the base unit and handset - i have to do this 5-6 times a day, while trying to talk to customers. And that still doesn't work all the time!!
Terrible System!! - Panasonic's warranty (I bought 3 yr extended) only covers giving me another model - I ship my base unit out to them, which leaves me with no phone system in the meantime.My recommendation - Stay away, far away from this phone system!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!!! BEST PURCHASE I HAVE EVER MADE!!!!
I just bought this thing from Amazon and all I can say

is WOW!!!!

This is probably the best purchase I have ever made.

This thing is everything I ever expected and more!! It's

very easy to use as well!

I have bought other brands before, and this one just

blows everything else out of the water! I have to say,

everyone out there who is thinking of buying this, stop

thinking. I bought it and I am extremely happy with it

the moment I powered this thing on. YOU ABSOLUTELY

POSITIVELY CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THIS PURCHASE! I

GUARANTEE IT!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Evaluate your phone needs first!
As you can read from the many reviews there is a love/hate relationship with these multi-line phones. We run a small business from home with the need to have access to our home line along with the business line (2 line phone KXTG-2000B).The Panasonic phone had the features we wanted but we ran into a quality control issue.The first phone system lasted 2 weeks and Amazon sent us a second system.That phone lasted one week before we started to encounter poor reception on the remote handsets.Amazon refused to send us a third replacement and said they would refund all our money.We live 30 minutes away from the Panasonic repair center located in Langhorne, PA USA.I dropped the phone off for repair and got the phone back in a week.I have to agree with a previous reviewer that the Panasonic repair phone number is constantly busy and I had to call many times to get a person to see if the phone was repaired.Panasonic did not call me when phone repairs were completed.However, after the repair the phone performed perfectly.The audio quality is excellent without the constant cutting in and out (remote handsets) as before.The range is about 50 feet further than our old Sony 900 Mhz cordless phones.The phone has been working well for the last 2 months, so for now all sins are forgiven.We kept working with this phone system because the alternative phones (Siemens 8825) had just as many if not more problems than the Panasonic multi-line phone system.

1-0 out of 5 stars Panasonic dropped the ball with this one!
The bottom line is, 90% of us purchased this phone for the "auto-attendant" feature. Unfortunately, Panasonic skimped on everything in this area. The auto-attendant functionality is basic, bare-bones, and completely unconfigurable.

The only thing you can change is the general greeting message and the mailbox messages. YOU CAN'T set your own extention numbers, define how many rings to allow before picking up, set to go to mail box automatically if there's no answer, etc, etc, etc.

If all you really need is a multi-line phone with answering machine, look elsewhere, there are far better phones for 1/3 the price. If you need the auto-attendant functionality, this is unfortunatly the only phone available short of purchasing a more expensive PBX system. If you want an idea of how limited this system is: go to Panasonic's web site and download the product manual PDF from the support section.

3-0 out of 5 stars Panasonic KXTG2000B
So far so good after 2 weeks of use.Some static problems with the handset which seemed to fix themselves.I am a little concerned about the battery life in the handset and am trying to use the charge up completely before placing it in the recharger as it says in the manual.Of course in an office situation that doesn't always work and I sometimes pick it up in the morning and find it has no charge which means I can't use it for 8 hours.....Thankfully I have the main base handset as a backup.
I am getting a battery light on the base station that stays on all of the time.Maybe that just means that the battery in the main base unit is charged.It does not explain that in the guide.
After looking at all of my options before buying this phone it seems Panasonic could fix most of their problems by using batteries with memory.....Most people have old Panasonic phones that they love and can't work out why the new versions have older technology. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst phone ever
Hard to dial.

Confusing keypad.

And to top if off, likes to hang up on people while it "searches for base".

One of the worst things I have ever bought.

2-0 out of 5 stars Reception isn't as good as expected
As well when plugging in a headset to the handset there's an irritating high pitch noise that is unfixable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great phone!
I bought the VTech 20-2431 base and 3 additional handsets six months ago for home use.I needed two lines and caller ID but did not need an answering machine as I use SBC CallNotes.I have been extremely pleased with the performance of these phones.The speakerphone on the base and the handsfree operation on the handsets have been nice features which I hadn't anticipated using as much as I have.Another unexpectedly great feature is the "message waiting" light which flashes when there's a new message on my SBC voice mail.I've also found the paging feature to be helpful in locating "lost" phones.The telephone range and battery life are exceptional.I highly recommend this phone.

1-0 out of 5 stars Interupted calls
I would not recommend this phone.I bought it for a small office.If you are talking on line 1 and line 2 rings, the handset beeps in your ear with every ring and interrupts line 1 creating segments of dead air, much like call waiting does.Very annoying in a business setting where the second line can ring multiple times during a business call.When I called vtech to find out what was wrong, I was told nothing was wrong, that was how this phone worked.This is worthless as 2 line phone.Also sound quality is like talking into a tin can.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Phone - Feature packed!!
With 6 people in the house, 2 lines and many handsets are essential. The quality of the phone is great with no static even on the far end of the house with the base on a different floor. Our handsets are in constant use and see the base rarely except at night. The charge will last all day but if left off the charger overnight, it will be dead in the morning. When using the phone company's voicemail system, the handset has a clear led that indicates voicemail is waiting. The handset has a fantastic form factor fitting very comfortably in use.
Line 2 rings even if line 1 is in use and caller id comes through if you have call waiting regardless of which line you are using.

Desired improvements: pager button on the remote bases (you can page from another handset or the main base). I also wish the intercomm would go directly to broadcasting through the speaker of the handset without requiring a person to pick it up. When saving a number to memory, there should be an option to save it to all handsets.

Without going to the $400 price point, this phone beats all others in this category! ... Read more

The NiCAD battery has a 7 hour recharge time (14 days on standby), while the low-battery indicator lets you know when to return the handset to its base. The two-way intercom lets you easily communicate with others in the home or office, while a page button on the base makes finding a lost handset quick and painless.

1-0 out of 5 stars The WORST Phone EVER
Amazon is the best, and offers the best deals anywhere.However this phone is the WORST!

I never realized how bad it could be until my daughter swallowed some day glow liquid from one of the silly party bracelets.In calling our doctor, local ER and Poison Control Center, I was so frustrated that I couldn't hear anything they said (the static is so bad).To complicate matters, the dialing is so slow that it added to the stress.Thank G-d for cell phones!!!

Do not buy this phone, because you will never know in an emergency if it will perform.

1-0 out of 5 stars A Horrible Phone
I bought this phone because I needed a cordless 2 line phone.The phone get allots of static and interfernce.The speakerphone has poor sound quality.The rest of the functions though present do not work well i caller id memory .

4-0 out of 5 stars nice little 2 line cordless
I was looking for a moderately priced 2-line cordless with caller-id and there aren't a lot of choices...

Because of the mixed reviews here, I was wary - and bought this under the Radio Shack label so I could easily return to my local store if I had any problems...

BUT it's a nice phone.No problems.
One feature not mentioned in the "editorial" is that you can store NAMES and numbers in the handset memory/speed-dial and scroll through to select - just like most cell phones.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing!
I bought this phone/answering machine based on some of the other comments I saw here and am VERY disappointed.The static was so bad on the first call I attempted(and switching channels did not help at all) that I had to pull out and reconnect my old phone.I've tested several calls since then and at BEST there is clicking and intermittent static.My 8 year old Sony phone works far better than this product!

4-0 out of 5 stars sound clarity.
This the first cordless phone we have had whose audio quality is as good as or superior to a corded phone.You can hear people clearly and distinctly even at some distance from the base unit.We have yet to experiencereverberation the way you do on some cordless phones. Combine it with aheadset you also get hands free mobility and don't lose anything in sound quality.

The phone has two features that we especially like.First, you maypick up the phone from the base unit and start talking immediately, just as you would on a corded phone.We like that.Second, you can pick up the handset when it's not on the base and hit any key on it to start talking.You don't have to look for the line 1 or line 2 key to start your conversation.

We would like it to have the feature that allows you to get immediately to a stored phone number by hitting an alpha key on your touchpad and bringing up your stored number by name. This has been a great feature on other phones.On this one, however, we get to a stored number by scrolling through the numbers in their stored locations until you get the number you want. ...
