I wanted a phone with the following features:

- didn't interfere with home WiFi network

- had a headset jack on the handset

- had a mute button

- had an answering machine

- could keep good quality while roaming 1 or 2 rooms away

This AT&T phone was the first I tried. It was ok. The answering machine works well and the buttons on both the base and the handset are well configured.

Two complaints. First, the buttons are not reliable when you're dialing. I have to dial long strings of numbers to navigate my company's internal system, and I often found myself having to hang up and redial because the AT&T phone buttons either didn't generate a tone or generated too short a tone.

Second, the phone cut out several times without warning. It would just drop the connection.

Of those I tried: GE, Uniden, Panasonic and AT&T, the Panasonic KX-TG6052B was the best. All features work, Panasonic audio is good, and the buttons and beeps are nice and responsive.

I worked in an office with a similar style of AT&T phone and when I moved out of state I looked for the same phones for our home. I found the newer E5912B and it met all the qualifications I was looking for in a phone system as well as being one of the top rated cordless phones on ConsumerReports.org.

I use Vonage as my phone company and this AT&T system works perfectly. I set the base unit to pick up after 4 rings and Vonage to pickup after 6 rings. This way if I'm on the phone and I receive another call I can let it go to Vonage's voicemail for the caller to leave a message. The phone will then tell me that I have a message waiting via the blinking message light even though the message is on Vonage's server.

The sound quality is crystal clear and the speakerphone is like no other. I often turn on the speaker and set it on my desk and the caller barely can tell it's on speakerphone. I love the ability to add another handset anywhere there's a power outlet for the charger; you're no longer tied to placing an extention next to a jack.

Finally, I've experienced no static interference from my WiFi network or other wireless devices. In fact the base sits right next to the microwave and still no interference (my previous phone had terrible static when the microwave was running).

Great phone! Clear, natural sounding and the answering machine works flawlessly. My only concern is that although it is advertised as wall mountable, it is clearly a desk model that when placed on the wall, sticks out in a VERY unattractive manner.

I purchased these phones in September, 2007 and the phones lasted till nearly Christmas before they failed. AT&T sent me another pair of phones and they worked OK till May of 2008, whereupon they failed as well. They died in EXACTLY the same way: loss of contact between phone and base unit. This cannot be coincidence. Customer service promised to send a second replacement set the end of May. It's now July and they still haven't arrived yet.

I'm through with AT&T.

I recently purchased this phone and later bought two handsets to expand it to the max of four phones. I like the features and price. Consumer reports rated this item highly. I wanted a lighted keypad,digital answering machine, and 5.8 GHz- this unit fit the bill. It's volume is loud enough and gives a test ring as you raise and lower the volume so you know how loud you are adjusting the tone. I would get it again.

Phone sound quality is the best we've had. We also enjoy having the extra receiver. The answering machine works great and sounds great. I would definitely recommend this phone. In fact, I have found that several friends already have this phone.
