Product Description

Amazon.com

The 21006ge3 from GE is a 2.4 GHz phone system with an extra handset and charging cradle, as well as many other useful extras. The second handset allows you to have multiple phone placements but doesn't require a second phone jack, so you can place it anywhere you have an electrical socket. By utilizing the 2.4 GHz frequency with digital spread spectrum technology, the 21006ge3 is able to offer clearer, more intelligible reception and at a greater distance than traditional analog phones. A 40-channel autoscan automatically chooses the clearest channel, while a digital security feature helps prevent unauthorized users from accessing your phone line.

Caller ID and call waiting compatible, the 21006ge3 has a 40-name-and-number memory, while a 50-number memory dialer allows you to store frequently used numbers. A display-and-dial feature lets you easily scroll through the caller ID or memory list and then call the displayed number with the touch of a button. You can also transfer caller ID entries to the memory dialing for later use.

Headset compatibility allows you to add an optional headset for hands-free communications, and a belt clip is provided for freedom of movement. An illuminated keypad makes dialing in poorly lit environments a snap, while a page/handset locator makes finding a lost handset quick and easy. A handset-to-handset intercom lets you communicate with the other handset, and you can even use the handsets in walkie-talkie mode. Three-way conferencing lets you communicate with multiple parties at the same time, while a redial button lets you easily dial the last outgoing number (up to 24 digits).

A low batter indicator lets you know when to return the phone to its charging cradle, which can be mounted on the wall, freeing up counter top space completely. The 21006ge3 also comes backed with a one-year limited warranty.

The reason I purchased a dual phone system was to avoid wiring a second wall jack to my bedroom.
I chose this particular phone system mainly because it was priced better than other similar phones. The better security of the 2.4 GHz frequency and especially the DSS (Digital Spread Spectrum) security feature were also a deciding factor.
My biggest concern is the sound quality. Though it has great range, I register a slight hiss as though I'm calling long distance. I also hear a few clicks now and then, though very infrequently. I cannot rule out my immediate environment as a possible cause, but since I am not in a densely populated area, I find my environment an unlikely candidate. The quiet hiss is present between handsets as well as on calls, ruling out my phone line. I've turned off all my electrical equipment with no improvement. The hiss is so slight that it is easily tolerated.
This would be a good phone system for both business and home use. However, I believe it is not expandable beyond two handsets. Both units have a nice small footprint. You can page both handsets from the base to find them. It has the typical functions of flash, redial, mute and hold. You can transfer calls from one handset to another, telling your co-worker who is on the line before he or she accepts the transferred call. Intercom and conferencing are also possible. The number pad and talk buttons are big enough for ease of use. The special function buttons are a little small.
There is a special walkie-talkie mode that allows you to talk to each handset independent of the base unit. The only benefit of the walkie-talkie mode over the intercom function is that it allows you to communicate between each handset even if your power is out.
Each phone is programmable independent.

Looks Great - Feels Good - Didn't Last! As stated from other reviews - poor reception, clicking sounds. Confusing Caller Id format. (Not to mention extremely small display window) And after 1 year of gentle use, on one of the handsets, the 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5, buttons no longer functions. What a waste! Avoid at all costs!

Well pleased with both performance and quality of these phones.
Clear audio with good range.
Second handset does not require phone jack, nice feature extending primary base/phone. Good value for the price.

I just got this after having a HORRIBLE system from Bell Phones. For the money, it's not bad. In response to some other reviewers, no, it doesn't automaticaly add a "1" before a long distance number if you're returning a number from the caller id. However, all you have to do is press the "format" button while viewing the number, and the "1" is added. This is good for someone like me, who lives in an area where I always have to dial the area code when calling anyone (even within my own area code) I only have to dial a "1" when someone is far away (and they might still be in my area code. It's very confusing)

As far as the echo and the static goes, I haven't had a problem with that. Hopefully I won't. I agree with the other people about the caller id list, though. It's very confusing, it's not in order of calls. Also, there is no voice mail waiting notification. But other than that, it's not bad.

This phone has absolutely terrible reception. There is a constant "white noise" in the background and a profound click that happens every 30 seconds. I have not had one conversation on either of the handsets without having to ask the other person to repeat what they have said because of this click.

Another severe disappointment is the caller id. The calls are not listed in received order. I have yet to figure out the order they are displayed, but there is no way to tell what the most recent call is without scrutinizing the date on the call.

The last disappointing aspect I am reporting is that on the caller id display, any call outsite of your area code is not displayed with the preceding 1 (for long distance). This means you may not simply hit the talk button to call back the caller on caller id. You have to punch in the number with the preceding 1+...

There is no redeming feature on this phone to make it a worth while buy for any reason.
