This is The Best multi-handset cordless phone because it allowed the clearest conversations and was easiest to set up in tests conducted by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute. Analysts rated this system highest for audio that was crisp and clear, unlike lesser models that were plagued by static or echoing. All the unit's functions are easily programmed via clear, onscreen instructions as opposed to models that require users to enter confusing codes or squint at miniscule displays. The phone system's DECT 6.0 technology allowed a call to be made up to 146' away from the base station, far superior to a model that dropped calls beyond 100'. The two-line digital answering machine/charging base has a large, easy-to-read LCD for caller ID (requires subscription), and can synch with up to four Bluetooth devices, enabling cell phone calls to be placed and received using any handset. It supports up to 12 handsets (one included; additional handsets sold separately). The cordless handset features a 20-number autodial memory, an illuminated keypad, and an intercom function. Handset battery provides up to seven hours of talk time on a full charge. Base: 9 3/4" L x 8 3/4" W x 4 1/4" H. (3 3/4 lbs.)

lacks the basics
from Windsor, CT
The phone does not display date and time. It does not display caller ID for more than a fraction of a second, so if you aren't sitting right at the phone when it rings, you don't know who's calling. I have one phone line but the default display is Line 1, Line 2, and CL. You have to push way too many buttons to do anything. The buttons are not easy to push, they have a lot of resistance. Everyone raves that the phone even works, which shows how low our expectations are. I am very disappointed that the basic things are missing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A few problems.
The "soft keys," including the menu selection and call log, are not particularly easy to fathom. My previous phone provided much easier access to the call log and when using the AT&T answering system there is no message light indicator on the phone.
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your comments. This phone has an answering machine tone that beeps every 10 seconds to let you know of new messages. This alert is off by default but can be turned on (see instructions in manual). With voicemail services, a small envelope icon should appear.

Great phone set
from Palo Alto, CA
This is probably more phone than we need for our home use (lots of bells and whistles), but we were tired of buying lesser systems that didn't last. So far, this is an impressive system that was relatively easy to set up and works well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A GREAT phone and wonderful reception
By Becky the flower girl
from Frankfort, Indiana
Had purchased an expensive phone system for my hearing-impaired father, but when he passed and I brought it home and used it, I was quite disappointed with it. Not good range, very unclear for others to hear me, etc. I am SO happy with your phone so far and look forward to many good years of clear phone conversations on it.

from Longport, nj
i charged the handset for 24 hours, spoke on it for 20 min, a few hours later it had no charge. I could not set up other handsets, even after I unplugged all other house phones as suggested. Directions say to keep it in charger when not in use,

have no complaints so far
By SS the phoner
from Brooklyn, NY
I just bought this phone. So, it didn't go through the time test yet. So far, it works to our satisfaction. We needed a phone for my wife working from home. She has a lot of conference calls throughout a day and needs a clear sound when the phone is on speaker. This model has better sound than our previous phone, even though I was reluctant to buy AT&T brand. At this point I do not have any cons to mention.
1. The volume on base and handsets need to be louder.2. There should be a light on the handset to let you know which line you are on. It is a 2 line phone. This helps to let you know that you have hung up the phone and not just switched the lines over. Which can happen. Instead you have to go look at the base phone to make sure the lines are hung up.
I would buy this again
from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Found this product easy to install and not that difficult to negotiate.Service was great and delivery was super fast.
I would buy this product again.
from Viera, FL
We are happy with the phones. It was some difficult to set up because it was so different from our last ones, but now that it is done, it works great.
