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.)

Nifty features - but no clock?
Love the two-line plus cellular phone capabilities; do not care for the lack of a clock on base and handsets. Too many steps (Menu-down arrow x6-select-down 2x-select-select-select-yes/no) to reset missed call ...Read complete review
Love the two-line plus cellular phone capabilities; do not care for the lack of a clock on base and handsets. Too many steps (Menu-down arrow x6-select-down 2x-select-select-select-yes/no) to reset missed call indicator, then 4 clicks to get back to main screen. Should be simpler. Disconnecting Bluetooth enabled devices so they can be used with cellular phones aggravating as well. Call clarity is fantastic, bluetooth range is quite a bit farther than stated, nice to have hold and speakerphone on hadset in addition to base. Nice selection for ringers and handset volumes as well.

lacks the basics

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.

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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
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.
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.
