Product Description

Call Keeper Digital Answering System - white

Amazon.com

Why clutter your answering machine with features you'll rarely use anyway? The Callkeeper from Conairphone offers digital (tapeless) reliability and convenience in an easy-to-use package with a low price.

You control the Callkeeper through five front-mounted buttons, one side-mounded volume control, and one back-mounted switch (ring select). One all-purpose green flashing light serves as the only indicator. A slowly flashing indicator means no outgoing message has been recorded. Flashing rapidly means the battery is low. Flashing a number of times and repeating means a number of new messages has been received. On but not flashing means the unit is on and has received no new messages.

To set up the Callkeeper, we inserted a 9-volt battery (not included), plugged in the AC adapter, and connected the telephone line cord. To record the announcement (greeting), we pressed and held the Announcement button; to verify the recording, we pressed Announcement again. To play back new messages, we pressed Play Messages. Setting up and operating the unit were easy.

After hearing messages, you can either save messages by pressing Save or erase messages by doing nothing. The constraints on messages are that the outgoing announcement can be no longer than 30 seconds, and no single incoming message can be longer than 45 seconds. The later constraint is quite significant, as we've never previously reviewed any answering machine with a maximum message length that was so brief.

You'll need the quick reference card for remote operation, as the process of retrieving, saving, erasing, and deleting message is not entirely intuitive. Also, the three-digit security code is factory-preset and posted on the bottom of the Callkeeper.

With its straightforward operation and low price, the Callkeeper makes a great answering machine for those seeking ease of use over abundant features.

Pros

  • Simple operation
  • Low price
Cons
  • No memo function
  • No time/day stamp
  • Only 45 seconds recording time per message

I have to say that I have hated most answering machines that we have owned but I especially hate this one. First, the light that indicates a message blinks way too slow. So, if you look at it quickly as you come in you don't even see the flash and don't know there is a message. Second, the remote access feature has never worked for me. Third, we have had this machine for about 6 months and it is already dead. Somehow it decided this past week to open the phone line and keep it open. I have no idea how long my phone was "off the hook."

I have not had one long enough to know about reliability, but I can discuss features. This machine is a very basic, low-end, inexpensive model:
--It does have the 2 ring/5 ring tollsaver feature. --Each message is limited to 45 seconds. --No date/time stamp. --No "memo" function. --If you retrieve your messages remotely, they stay on the machine, and the message counter still blinks for them. I don't think they can be deleted remotely.

Like almost everyone, I've had a dozen answering machines because they just didn't operate long, or didn't do what was needed. This little machine does its job day after day, even cooperating with a fax machine perfectly (unless I gum up the works by trying to answer from an extension!). My only complaint about it is the short and unpredictable message it will record for incoming calls and the microscopic time allowed for the outgoing message! You just have to be fast and concise on the Conair!

This product worked great, considering its price. Then, after 3 months, it stopped working at all. Considering its price, I shouldn't have been surprised. I would recommend buying two, in case the first breaks.

I've had the machine about a month. I thoroughly read the instructions and have found that the remote call in does not work--for me. I call form work and the machine won't. Further, after the machine is full, it stops working. The Save/Stop feature is the SAME button. So, you may not want to save a message, but you still have to push that button. I guess, since it seizes up after 10 messages, it doesn't matter if you saved it or not. You have to erase all to help it to start again.

Stay clear of this machine....it is not user friendly (you even need a screwdriver to change the battery), the buttons are not easy to use and many of them need to be operated in a way that, at first glance, doesn't make sense and is not consistent with other machines out there. Forget about trying to use the remote answering feature without the owner's manual handy. I got so frustrated that I threw mine in the garbage after a couple of weeks and bought another machine.

I bought one of these a year ago. Worked great - though messages are limited to 30 seconds each which is a bit short. Sadly mine just died - horrible screeching noise when I pick up the phone and callers got a busy signal for a day. I suppose you get what you pay for... Conclusion : Good value, but suspect reliability

In this case, I got this free then downloaded the manual from ConairPhone.com. This unit is cheap in both price and quality. It lacks some basic features which other "cheap" models have such as: date/time stamp, selective erase feature, skip a message, save a specific message. This unit, as mentioned previously, ALWAYS requires the user to listen through all messages to get to the most recent. That's if the user has remembered to save them. If the user forgets to press the "stop/save" message button after listening to them, the next call will force erasure of ALL saved messages. No chance of retrieval. I tried the remote operation with my cell phone and was unable to activate the unit, since my phone will not play the tones long enough. This is a BASIC unit. Don't get it if you want a few features; this one can be a source of frustration.
