Pretty good phone
on May 18, 2009
This phone is simple to set up, and simple to use, because it's got no bells and whistles.
The only things that make me give it 4 stars are
1 - the dents where you place the headset are a bit shallow and a bit tight.
If they had been deeper and looser, it would make it a lot easier to hang up the phone. Since the dents are shallow and tight, you have to take care to place the headset correctly. An extra quarter inch gap between the sides of the headset and the walls of the dents would've made it so one can hang up without thinking about it.
2 - The cord is short.
I have a computer on my desk, and since I spend much more time on the computer than the phone, the phone goes on an adjacent table. I had to keep the cord from my old phone, as the cord that comes with this phone doesn't go out that far. Also, the phone is light (which is a good thing, mind you), so when the cord gets stretched, the phone starts getting pulled off the table. A cord that's a foot or two longer would've been great.
I do like how the buttons have a bit of gap between them. It looks a lot nicer than a scrunched-up keypad where the numbers are all right next to each other with no gap.
Overall, a nice phone.
