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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Avoid this phone.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3)The sound quality is clear.

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

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

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

4-0 out of 5 stars PANASONIC KX-TS105W
Nice well designed phone. Very easy to program. Takes 3 AA batteries for memory presets. I purchased two of these phones, one for my grandparents who promptly dropped the phone on the kitchen floor ejecting the batteries thereby erasing all the pre-programmed numbers that I had entered. Battery cover needs to be taped down to prevent this, as battery cover does not close well (Panasonic could have designed a better battery cover into this phone as they have with other models).

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cons:Everything else.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
This product works but is disappointing. I've been using it everyday for three months now and have decided to get rid of it. Although it's adjustable, even at the lowest setting the volume really is too loud. I have to remove it when I dial or the tones actually start hurting. Also, if the other person happens to speak loudly it gets painful fast. I solved this by taping in some cotton - but, really, that's not what I paid for! It's nice to have a mute button, but, as another reviewer points out, it's too close (adjacent) to the button that hangs up the phone. I've hung up on people when I was rushing to turn off mute several times now. Last but not least, the microphone is too finicky. It has to be placed in just the right place or people say they can't hear me. I know a lot of people are too polite to say anything and just grin and bear it. Caller ID also is lacking.

1-0 out of 5 stars Only good if you don't care what the other person is saying
I use this phone at work. I have been looking for a replacement. The features are nice and the headset holder is nice to have, but it has one terrible flaw - the clarity is non-existent! It sounds like the person on the other end is talking through a pillow. Turning up the volume doesn't help, either, it only amplifies the fuzz. We have another, older Plantronics phone that has much better sound quality, so maybe we just got a faulty one. I wouldn't risk it, though.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Performer!
I needed a phone for a home office. This phone was recommended and I bought it through an Amazon affiliated merchant. It is my 1st handsfree phone and I love the convenience of it! No more neck aches. Sound quality is as good or better than my cordless phone and no interference so far from any of the other equipment in the office. Small size base, comfortable headset. I would change 2 things - the MUTE button is right above the ON/OFF button and could cause an embarrassing hangup. The other is a longer headset cord. It appears to be about three feet long. Otherwise very nice!

5-0 out of 5 stars great quality!
This is the second model of this phone I have purchased - I'm a repeat buyer because the first one worked out so well.Great, clear sound quality, and a comfortable headset.I prefer a corded phone to cordless for the security factor, and because in a power outage a cordless phone is not operable.If you want a corded phone with a headset, this is the one!

1-0 out of 5 stars Picks Up Radio Signals
I purchased this phone for use in a home office and discovered immediately that it picked up a local radio station at a very audible level.I visited the Plantronics website and discovered that were well aware of this problem because it was listed in the FAQ on how to address the situation which they claimed was cause by living too close to radio station towers (we don't live near any radio towers).It went on to suggest ordering a filter to be installed between the phone and the headset control unit,but since this model has the head set control and phone fully integrated, I was doubtful of the solution.The alternative was to try several different locations and I finally discovered that if the phone was placed in my closet, the intereference dissappeared.I finally threw it away because of this ridiculous issue.Apart from this, it's a great phone, but this fatal flaw made it useless to me though I'm sure some users may never encounter this problem. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone
We bought one of these to replace the older model KT3280 which we bought about 10 years ago. We love the built-in caller ID. Haven't tried any other phones as we are pleased with the Panasonic.

1-0 out of 5 stars misleading LCD feature
This phone was listed with LCD features but not suitable for my needs.It was shipped by Beach Audio.Contacted Beach to convey my disappointment and return the telephone.I was required to go through ridiculous red tape procedures plus $10.20 shipping and "required insurance" I purchased this phone on Nov 17, 2003 and returned it on Nov. 23,2003.My visa was originally billed for $94.85including shipping&handling.I paid a total of $105.50.Until I called today there was no credit on my Visa.BeachAudio is allowing me $79.52. This is highway robbery.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great phone
I recently purchased two of these phones for my office to replace two very disapointing GE models, as soon as I had them set up, I immediately bought a third for my home. It might seem to be a minor detail, but even the batteries were included. The hands free feature is excellent, programming is a snap and fairly customisable, the intercom is great, it's expandable up to eight extensions, great sound quality all around. I hope that panasonic will make a cordless model that is compatible with this system. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Fragile headsets
This phone works well for what I need -- but I've gone through two headsets in two years!The first one just quit working -- the second was destroyed when my son stepped on the cord and it broke off at the jack. So be sure to have a warranty or a replacement plan ... and of course, it's the headset, not the base, that's the expensive part.

3-0 out of 5 stars Plantronics T20 Update
Since this product is still being sold and preceding reviews were some time ago, I'll share my recent experience with the product.It's stylish and solid.The volume and tone controls are accessible and effective.Received audio (ear speaker) is clear and rich.Transmit audio (microphone)is adequate, but could use a gain control.

Disappointments: Line and mute controls are very close together, occasionally leading me to disconnect a line when I reach to mute it.No memory functions other than 'Redial', which doesn't seem to work on the second line.

GLARING INADEQUACY:The BLARING touch tones generated by dialing and navigating through interactive phone systems are way too loud, even at the lowest volume settings.Bad idea, bad design, bad Plantronics.Bad, bad, bad.

5-0 out of 5 stars I want to buys
I would like have one but it is out of stocks. When
you can have it on sale. And can you ship to Taiwan?

Thanks...

2-0 out of 5 stars Love/Hate Relationship
I LOVE the style of this phone! I love how the top lights up BRIGHT RED when I'm on the phone. I love how the mute lights up when enabled. I love the tone and volume controls and the fact that it handles two lines beautifully--each lighting up green when active, red when ringing. Even the headset is stylish AND convertible (over-the-ear or over-the-head)!

If only I loved the QUALITY!! :-( The sound is HORRIBLE. When dialing, the tones are deafening--to the point of pain. Seriously.

There is also an irritating noise. It's sounds like an auto-gain control (maybe the noise-cancellation) that induces a hiss ONLY when someone is speaking. If there is silence on the line, it is silent. When someone speaks (me or the caller) the hiss joins in. Fortunately, the callers can't hear it.

Also, people say they can't hear me very well. They say it sounds very thin compared to my cordless phone.

I'm really sad that this beautifully designed phone fails to perform. If I can get over the BLARING TONES and the ANNOYING HISS and the POOR SOUND QUALITY, I'll keep it. Otherwise, I'm taking it back.

1-0 out of 5 stars All Show and No Go!
If this product were only as pleasing to the ear as it is to the eye!But it's not.After more than a quarter century of engineering headsets/amplifiers one would think that Plantronics would get it right.Wrong!!

If I hadn't destroyed the plastic package in which it came I'd have returned this product without a moments hesitation. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Had to add a mute button.
I had to modify the phone with an on-off pushbutton to mute the mic.I couldn't find another corded phone in this price range with two lines and speakerphone but the lack of mute really sucks on this one.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nice Phone, But Lacks Some Essentials
I have to agree with everyone.Two lines are very nice, but the lack of a mute button makes this phone unusable for conference calls.Unfortunately, I am going to have to replace it with another phone that has two lines and a mute button.Fatal design flaw.Lack of a lighted "message waiting indicator light" is also a big drawback, but there is a faint message waiting indicator on the LCD.

4-0 out of 5 stars I like it better than most
It's true, it's not perfect, but it doesn't cost a fortune either. There is no mute button, but Iuse the speakerphone to listen until I get off the endless hold of banks, tech support, whatever.. so that is not a problem for me. I like that I can use my headset, the handset OR the speaker. The sound quality is good. I set Line 1 as my default line, and I HAVE dialtone on Line 1 when there is no power. I have had the phone unplugged for up to an hour an NOT lost my settings, so I don't think that's all that much of a problem either. Yes, you have to be able to use a menu to set the ringer volume, but once it's set, I leave it, so again, no problem there. For me this phone was a good value for the money, and I am happy with it.

4-0 out of 5 stars No MUTE button while on speakerphone
Great phone for 2 line use in my home office, however lacks a MUTE button for conference calls.

2-0 out of 5 stars Beware No Mute, No Easy Ringer Off

    2-0 out of 5 stars nice looking with poor speakerphone
    This phone worked well, but, in less than 6 months, the speakerphone faded in and out, to the point where it was not possible to hear the incoming message at times.I obtained a replacement, but the replacement phone did the same thing.Other people have reported similar experiences in their reviews.

    3-0 out of 5 stars 2 line interference.
    The phone works OK, all features are fine, but when you are using 1 line and someone else uses the other line, you can hear them and they can hear your conversation. I thought that this was something in my house wiring but fond out that this is not the case, (and by the way, I am using 2 different phone companies).
    Well, if you want something with that price, you expect to have some issues.
    I would give it 3 star rating.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Good when it works...
    This phone has lots of good features for a good price--when they work! The speakerphone on line 1 works great. You can hear and be heard from several feet away. When I use it on line 2, the speaker fades in and out, often so low you can't hear your party. The headset jack has a short in it, so you have to fiddle like crazy to find a position where the headset doesn't crackle (then if you accidently move the plug you have to start over). It has a cool feature that ends a call when the other person hangs up, saving you from having to hit a button to end the call when you're on speakerphone or headset, but unfortunately it occasionally will end a call BEFORE they hang up--embarrassing! The caller-ID will not let you back up to see a number you've already seen--it's just gone. The voicemail waiting light sometimes doesn't blink when you have voicemail. That's all I can think of right now. Anyone know of a good quality 2-line speakerphone that will hold up to every-day home-office use?

    1-0 out of 5 stars One of the worst phones we've ever owned!
    We've had nothing but ongoing problems with this phone.The biggest one was the phantom interefence noises that would eminate from the phone in the middle of the night!They'd go away if you jiggled the cord enough and then suddenly come back a month or two later.The hands-free option no longer works and now it's extremely difficult both hearing and being heard on it.And we've barely owned it a year!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Mouthpiece has plastic smell
    This phone has all the features you would like in a two line phone. I especially like the voice mail received light. The big problem I am having is finding a headset that produces good sound quality. I have tried 4 different headsets including the AT&T H420, and none of the made the cut. I also had to return the first model I bought because it rocked on the table. If anyone knows what headset to use, I would like to know about it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars big phone system features for small price
i purchased 5 of these phones for my New Jersey office from my telephone wiring contractor CROWN TELECOM SERVICE (732) 681-3903 and they are a dream. they were up and running with a little programming.

Easy to use, cheap, and have big system features like intercom, page, hold, LCD display, etc.Phone systems cost thousands of dollars for the same features.

Don't fall for the big system hype. Have these installed and save yourself alot of money!

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed Small Business
I purchased 4 of these phones for my small business.They are terrible.While everyone in technical support admits I have tried everything to get the phones to work they do not.I can talk on them but if I put a call on hold and pick it up at a different extension the customer can't hear us....we sound like a Mickey Mouse organization....Avoid these phones no matter how nice customer serivce is they can't help.

2-0 out of 5 stars phone is fine but it broke and no replacement parts
The wires in the handset keep losing contact even though I tried to fix it many times. And, the key here is, there are no replacement parts... So, that is a major problem.

5-0 out of 5 stars the right review!
I strongly disagree with the first review because it is nearly impossable to say they are "fragile"
I strongly agree with the second review and I already have 4 AT&T 944 telephones, 4 AT&T 955 telephones, and 4 AT&T 964 telephones in my office building and I also plan on adding AT&T 955 and AT&T 964 telephones to every room of my floor.

On a seperate issue...

I own 4 AT&T 944 telephones, 4 AT&T 955 telephones, and 4 AT&T 964 telephones since the first day on the market and I have NEVER had ANY problems with ANY of my telephones! I know that I can't say my true feelings on your sickening reviews, but I can say that your reviews are sad and angering, and maybe if you would read the manual FULLY and maybe called a telephone engineer, you would not need to bash AT&T. I LOVE MY AT&T 944 955 AND 964 TELEPHONES!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good quality wall phone, a bit bulky, no voicemail light
I bought this device to mount on the wall in front of my work desk, and for that purpose it's an admirable phone.

Plus: The contrast- adjustable LCD displays current date and time without you having to set it, the buttons for call list browsing, option setting, etc. are on the back of the receiver so you don't have to take the phone off the hook to use them. The sound quality is great of course, this being a corded phone, and it feels somewhat worthy in your hand. The keypad lights up, although only for a few seconds - dial fast in the dark! The ring tone is nice at its medium setting.

Minus: I find the base a bit bulky, the LCD has no background light, and when the handset is set to "hi" volume, you do hear a bit of a screeching noise when putting the set down on the base (I keep the setting at "lo" though, which is plenty loud). My main gripe is that the phone doesn't have a voicemail indicator, which would be extremely sweet with my phone company (Vonage). Also, the caller id stuff works with batteries ONLY - at least, they could have put a 6v ac adapter plug on the phone.

Still, four stars because the phone does all it says it does.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Phone
I bought this phone for my elderly father last October.The caller ID screen is larger than alot of cordless phone CIDs and you can adjust the contrast by pushing the "options" button, and choosing between 1-4 in "contrast."4 is the darkest contrast so that is what we set my father's phone on.The phone is very attractive, and can be either wall mounted or sit on a desk.There is a piece on the bottom of the phone you adjust for either wall or desk placement.

Now for the negatives.My father has trouble hearing and he had trouble hearing on this phone at times.After I bought him this phone, I told him I had 30 days to return it, so please check it out to see if he could hear with it.Well, he used it, but I never heard a negative word about it until it was too late to return it.He is now using an old phone of mine that has volume you can turn up very loud and he's happy.

Personally, I think this is a very good phone.The only negative I noticed is a light background buzzing noise when you make a call on it.If you need a corded phone with a nice size caller ID screen with big letters and numbers, this is a good phone.It would make a good back-up for someone who prefers cordless phones, but needs a corded phone for those times when electricity is off.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good phone, one MAJOR flaw
This is a good phone, except it has one major flaw which makes it unusable. First off, a minor flaw is that it is hard to pick up the reciever as it is locked in there, I don't like that. Another flaw is that while you are picking up and putting back the phone, it makes a VERY high and LOUD screaming pitch. This makes it almost deafening for someone on another phone in the house. This phone will be going back ASAP because it is unusable. Stay away from this phone at all costs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Phone
Hands down this is the best corded caller-id/call waiting id phone on the market. For the extra few dollars it beats all the other brands in performance and features. I picked mine up after returning 3 Southwest Bell Freedom Phones that were not what I expected. BJ's wholesale Club has the phone for $12.99 plus tax (if applicable). Like I said, $3.00 more than the SW phone and 100% better. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Typical cheap Asian electronics
    In other words, lots of claimed features, many of which are unnecessary, conflict with one another and are poorly documented. Additionally, we found that this unit (although not the 944 slave) is subject to RFI (static), which required us to relocate it to another room.

    How much is your time worth? Figure on spending at least 5 hours getting this turkey up to a minimal operating level and never being able to get it to work fully.

    Since the RFI appears to be generated by the answering system, consider buying a separate answering machine. The first one we bought, from AT&T, was defective. We ended up instead with the Panasonic KX-TM100B [ASIN: B00000J53X]. You'll save yourself a lot of grief by buying it instead.

    Another reviewer recommends the Voice Logic Voice Pro 412 system. I don't have any experience with that one, but can't see how it could possibly be as bad as this.

    If you do buy this one, or have already bought it, be sure to download and save the operating manual. Otherwise, once amazon stops selling it, you'll have trouble finding a manual. This is, obviously, good advice with any electronics product.

    1-0 out of 5 stars It does not deserve the one star rating
    I purchased one 964 and three 955 for my real estate business.The answering machine was very important to me.I only hope that I can return these lousy phones.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Did not deliver on promises
    I purchased this phone with high expectations based off product features especially the auto attendant.We purchased 2 each 944 and 2 eacch 964.This was for a small office (2 people)The 944 phones worked together but the 964 phones did not.The manual was the worst to date I have read on a phone system and gave no detail.After countless hours with support staff on phone (email support was a joke they copied sections from manual and sent them to me even though I had described following every step of the manual to them in detail) it was determined that while they advertised it would work with any anaolg line system it would not work ours because our system had been upgraded by BellSouth.During course of events I found out that it was common for the phones not to work together.The system never worked as promised and phone manufacture gave up trying to solve problem.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointment and Frustration
    Nothing about this product is intuitive or simple.The hardware and software for this product are poorly designed. The only reason to purchase this product is if you want a product only you can use; this may give you job security but your job will become coping with the phones.Most important, our clients didn't like the process necessary to leave a message.

    The most basic operations, like taking messages and retrieving them, are complex to set up and perform.

    I could not figure out how to set the machine to pick up messages without calling AT&T support.I wanted to have the machine answer the phone and take messages if no one was in the office.Instead the answer message was played three times or the caller had to select an extension to have the machine accept a message.

    If the line you set up to receive messages is busy, you need to have a second 964 if you want to take a message on the second line.This means that you have to check more than one phone for incoming messages. And, if I wanted someone else to pick up messages, it took a half hour to train them because the operation was so confusing.

    The phone has too many buttons. Even after using the phone for several weeks I was not able to find the redial button easily. The directory holds lots of entries but it is not easy to set up or retrieve them.

    The problems just went on.Rather than waste more time trying to use the features on these phones, I set them where they are only used occasionally -- throwing away most of the purchase price for these phones.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Very unhappy with this product
    I originally purchased two 964's to replace Casio Phonemate telephones I had been using. After three months, I went back to the Casio phones.

    Problems included:
    1. Answer function inflexible and poorly designed: If there is a way to let a caller leave a message without going into a "phone tree" I couldn't find it. Phone repeated announcement rather than take message.I had to call support to setup phone to accept incoming messages which is a basic function of the 964. When I was talking on the phone, it couldn't answer and take messages, that required a separate phone and a second place to check for incoming messages.
    2.Poor hardware design: Directory was inconvenient to setup and use. Too many buttons on the face made it difficult to find a specific function quickly. Not able to use a line without having the answer function enabled on it.
    3. Poor documentation: The manual did not have the specifics I needed to figure out what I was doing wrong.

    Avoid this product. Nothing about this phone was intuitive. It has no redeeming features. I'm sorry I can't give it negative stars here. ... Read more
