Product Description

Amazon.com

The AT&T EL42308 5.8 GHz Cordless Phone with Three Handsets and Answering System features 5.8 GHz analog technology and a built-in digital answering system. By utilizing the 5.8 GHz spectrum, the EL42308 has better sound quality, enhanced range, and increased security compared to phones that operate on a lower bandwidth, such as 2.4 GHz. The EL42308 includes three handsets (along with a base and two charging cradles) that allows you to use all three handsets through a single phone jack. You can transfer a call from one handset to another. The phone features a 30 entry phonebook directory and has a lighted keypad and display. The EL42208 is caller ID and call waiting capable, with a 30 name/number caller ID history. An indicator tells you when you have a new call and when you have missed one.

A built-in digital answering machine system records messages on microchips for reliable performance, instant access to messages, and the ability to selectively save and delete messages. The answering machine features enough memory for 11 minutes of recording time, and a message time/day stamp lets you know when the missed message was received. The phone is table and wall mountable for placement flexibility.

This product does just what I wanted. I located the "main" phone in our home office and the two handsets in the bedroom and kitchen where they take up little space. There are some good features such as handset locator, a good sized screen so you can easily see the caller ID and if there were missed calls. For the average home user this product has more technology than you may need but its easy to use only what you need without having to battle features that are unnecessary to you. Nice to have a white phone, but the power cord is black. The handsets seem to hold their charge for quite some time. The voice mail is easy to set up and use.

I bought these phones in 2009, by early 2010 the batteries stopped working on 2 of the 3 phones. They will not hold a charge. Total waste of time and money. Don't bother buying these. Will never buy an AT&T phone again.

We bought this phone in 11/08. By 1/09 the speed dial wouldn't work on some numbers. One handset will not dial out some numbers at all. The handsets are very flimsy feeling. It is a pain to always have to go to a corded phone if we want to talk to someone at the same time. I am now shopping for more phones. I won't buy another ATT phone and am now leery of buying VTech. We don't like this handset system at all. We like having each phone hooked up to a jack. The reception is better. The reception on this phone was awful. Stay away from this phone. Stay far away.

I gave this as a gift to an older couple. They love the intercom feature, as she is in poor health and now she has the comfort of knowing that she can contact him anywhere in the house or the yard. She can have a phone with her at all times using the belt clip. They love the phones.

low volume answering machine for monitoring calls
noisy intermittantly
if you increase volume, sounds like you are in bell, distracting feedback, clicking sounds

i presently have a 5.8 ghz at&t model 5840 and have never had a problem with it.
i dont like the dect 6.0 phones.
i had expected the same analog technology would yield the same audio results,
i was sadly mistaken.
