Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Phone That Talks
When a call comes in, this phone doesn't just let you see who's calling, it actually tells you who's calling with Talking Caller ID1,2. Using text-to-speech technology, the caller's name is announced between rings if name/number Caller ID1 information is available.

Can You Repeat That?
With SlowTalk message playback, you'll never miss important information again. You can slow down the playback speed of recorded messages by 30 percent at the touch of a button. And with this system's all-digital answering system, those messages will already be crystal clear and easy to retrieve, with up to 18 minutes of recording time.

Voices Come Through Loud and Clear
By simulating a band signal above and below the normal bandwidth limitations, Voice Enhancer Technology helps clarify and improve sound reception creating a natural-sounding voice that is easy to hear and understand.

Turn the Ringer Off…
Don't miss important calls when the ringer is off. The Light-Up Indicator at the base of the antenna will flash quickly to show that you have an incoming call, and it will flash slowly to let you know you have a new message. You can also choose up to three different light-up indicator colors to link to your pre-programmed phonebook data. Light-Up ID1,3requires corresponding Caller ID information to be received from an incoming call.

…Or Keep the Ringer On
With Ringer ID1, you can choose from a downloaded or selectable ringer to link to your pre-programmed phonebook data, which also requires corresponding Caller ID information to be received from an incoming call.

Let the Kids Join the Conversation
With a Digital Duplex Speakerphone on the back of each handset, you can enjoy convenient, high-quality, hands-free conversations from any room in the house. So let the kids join in on the conversation with Grandma and Grandpa, or paint your nails while you chat with your best friend.

1. Requires subscription to name-and-number Caller ID, call waiting and/or voice mail services offered by certain local telephone companies for a fee.
2.Name pronunciation may vary. Name pronunciation quality is based on names most commonly used in the United States.
3. Requires name registration in phonebook function.
Note: Ni-MH batteries have an advantage over Ni-Cd batteries in that they have high resistance to memory effect and are cadmium-free.

Talking caller ID is a great feature.

The answering machine provides a very clear recording, but I wish it had something to indicate how many messages were on it.

It is easy to use and the sound quality is good.

I recently bought this cordless phone for my parents as they were having trouble rushing to reach one of their corded extensions. So far it is great. Because it comes with two handheld units, they each get to carry one with them all day. The best part is that the phones come with built-in intercoms and they can communicate with each other via the intercom when they are in different rooms (which is frequently!). My father, who is also hard of hearing and has difficulty hearing conversations on most phones, has no problem hearing people on this phone. So all in all, a great phone. So great, in fact, that I'm thinking of purchasing one for myself and my wife!

A reviewer of another product wrote a review that was so simple it saved me from buying the wrong DVD-R, just by pointing out the unpublicized lack of a feature I would have considered standard.

To get to it: Maybe I missed it, but apparently once a message is retrieved, there is no indication there was ever one there. And: you cannot change the outgoing message from away. These may be two trivial points, but to me they seem to be- or at one time were, basic functions of an answering machine. Now I realize why tape answering machines - Panasonic, usually- still go for an average of $70 on Ebay.

I would have to contend that otherwise, this seems to be an OK phone, easy to program and use. Adequate battery life, decent clarity and signal strength. But I would trade multiple ringtones, talking caller ID and 3 LED colors for a lingering "message received" indicator.

**************************************************

However, after six months use:

Pro:

1. Works pretty much like a basic wireless phone should work.
2. No transmission issues. The colored lights are pretty. The intercom works OK. My cat was even able to operate the base unit pager at 3AM today, I am not making this up.
3. The handsets have an alarm clock capability. (Now there's something I have always wanted in a phone!) Not.

Con:

1. You cannot change the outgoing message via remote, to me a major oversight
2. The base unit pops and clicks when its handset is in use, sometimes the
conversation will bleed through.
3. The ringtones included are quite a few types: moderately irritating to extremely annoying.
4. The dial-out speed is prehistorically slow.
5. The messaging playback and control is almost crude.

The phone itself is awesome! It does everything you can possibly think of: talking caller id from each handset, speakerphones with mute option on each handset, message retrieve from each handset, intercom option, note/message option on base unit, internal phone book on each handset, ringer id for each handset - the list is endless. The only thing I would change is the wall mount option. I bought this phone for my kitchen wall, and although it does have the wall mount plate, the phone base must sit horizontally or the handset will fall out. When mounted to the wall, it sits at a 90-degree angle. It sticks out sort of far, so if the phone is in a high-traffic area it will be bumped into. It also is difficult to see since most phone plates sit close to eye level. I have to stand on my toes to see the buttons to check for messages. As long as you plan to use the base phone on a desk, you can't go wrong!

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

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've since purchased a second set for another floor of the house.

I've had this phone for awhile now. I would definitely recommend this phone to anyone looking for a wireless phone system in their house that doesn't have a huge ugly antenna sticking out of it.

This phone has incredible range compared to my Motorola 5.8ghz system. The clarity of the phone is what I would expect - the speakerphone is even better. It is actually loud enough to hear the other person (most speakerphones - you can't hear anything in my experience).

I love the fact that it doesn't have a huge antenna hitting my head when I'm holding this up to my ear. The way this phone feels is A+. It fits in your hand perfectly and still feels ok after holding it to your ear for a few hours.

My only complaint about this phone is: The buttons do not light up and the volume is a wee low when you're holding it up to your ear.

Things I found out later: My cell phone's headset works on this phone. That is a big plus as I talk a lot with family in another state.

Definitely recommended!

Love this new cordless Panasonic phone. Battery life is excellent, sound quality excellent and extra headset is two floors above main unit and works perfectly. Intercom is nice and works great. Talking caller id is hilarious and saves you from having to get up to look at the display to see who's calling. The system struggles with pronouncing some names but I can always figure out who is calling. I would highly recommend this new Panasonic unit to anyone.
