I purchased this phone to replace a similar, but much older model. I purchased the base, and 3 extra handsets. I received the merchandise well packaged, and very quickly. The product description is accurate, and I would agree with another review that mentioned the buttons make it difficult to not disconnect a call when pressed against the cheek while talking. It's not a huge problem, but something to think about. I purchased an inexpensive headset to resolve this problem, which means if I'm washing dishes or using my hands for something else while I'm on the phone I do not have the problem with accidentally hanging up. The handsets synchronized easily, and the reception and volume are great. All in all this is an excellent product for the price.

Needed another handset for my office and this was the best price around. Save a lot of money and it was really easy to install. The speaker function works really well and the sound is very clear.

We are very pleased with the phone and its operation. It has very good range, is user friendly, and the intercom works great!! Also, the reception is very clear.

I am very pleased with this product, however, the only negative I would say about it is that you can be checking your messages on the answering machine and if someone calls in, it stops you from hearing you messages. Other than this, I really like the phones.

I am a usability engineer for websites. This has got to be the worst design I have ever seen in a phone. If you tilt your head the wrong way, it hangs up on the person you are talking to. The design of it is so terrible because of the location of the off button and also how touchy the button itself is. I definitely would not recommend this phone to anyone. It will embarass you during phone conversations because you will have to call people back because you will constantly be hanging up on them.

Dont order this if you dont buy the main base. I bought it because i thought it would work with my at&t telephone but it doesnt it has to be the same model as this, they should include that info in their product description. So I have to return it with my own expense. Their return policy sucks!!! NEVER AGAIN WITH THIS COMPANY!

The handset was DOA, due to a defective battery. A phone call to the supplier led to them sending a new battery within a few days, at no charge of course. The handset is excellent.

I should have listened to the minority of reviewers who said that the phone arrived with a dead battery, and could not be charged, when they received the phone. Mine too was useless. It seems to be a standard problem with this unit. Amazon cannot exchange the item, only refund it, so I have to start the whole process again, with another phone. What a waste of time and effort. Don't bother with this phone.
