The display is fixed and angled down which makes it impossible to read when wall-mounted unless you are less than 4 foot tall.
The voice mail indicator is an icon on the LCD display and can not be viewed from accross the room. Most phones with this feature have a light that eluminated so you don't have to get within 1 foot of the phone to see if you have a message.
This phone didn't come with a short wall-mount cord. I used one from an old phone.
I have always been pleased with Panasonic procducts up until now. I plan to get a different phone and put this phone in a spare room where I don't have to use it.

We needed a CORDED phone because the kids keep leaving the cordless in the basement or under piles of clothes somewhere. This phone has an excellent design, takes only three AA batteries (unlike other models requiring 4), has an easy to use interface with caller ID, memory, search, changeable level of contrast and clear instructions right on the phone. The ring is nice too!

I had this phone but needed to replace it when it got pulled off the counter. I am just as glad to replce it because I do not like the caller ID. It is difficult to read and to manipulate to the number just called. Erasing numbers takes more time than on our old caller ID. I will look around for another phone to replace this one.

I bought this phone for the caller ID feature. The display can only be read if you look at it just right and the caller ID stopped working after about 3 months.

Poor design. Poor quality.

I was really looking forward to this phone. I needed a caller ID phone that didn't use an AC outlet. There aren't many out there. I respected the Panasonic name but what I got was awful. First, I hung it on the wall but I couldn't read the display while I was standing next to it. I had to stoop down to about 5 feet above the floor to read the display. To program the phone I had to get a chair and sit in it to perform the program. That's when the big problem was discovered.
The LCD is about three lines tall. But only half of the middle line was "lighting" up. The LCD was busted! I waited a week for this? So far the Amazon return process has been friendly, but I dread looking for another phone.
Other drawbacks: no short cable for wall mounting, no free AA batteries.

I really like panasonic phones in general - I have 2 cordless phones & an answering machine which are panasonic. When I went looking for a corded phone with caller id, I was excited to find this one - the size and design were exactly what I was looking for. However, the display is difficult to read unless you're standing above it and the caller id feature is lacking. Specifically, I found that I cannot recognize cell phone numbers - it displays them as "out of area" with no number attached to them. By contrast, my other panasonic cordless phone displays "out of area" AND the phone number for cell phones. This is important because I like to distinguish between telemarkets and my friends with cell phones. With this phone, I can't.

I got this phone and promptly returned it. The problem was that the

Caller ID didn't work when I called in on my Verizon cell phone. I

know for a fact that the Caller ID is coming through, since I see it

on other phones (including other Panasonic phones!), but this one just

says OUT OF AREA. Broken as designed. I ended up getting an AT&T

Model 858. It's a shame there are so few options in traditional

corded phones that keep up on the newer features. I was loyal to

Panasonic for a long time but not anymore.

I sent this to someone as a gift so they could be able to communicate during the many power outages in their city. Cordless phones are worthless during a time like that. They like it okay. I dont regret buying it because I like the Panasonic name. I'd buy one for myself if my husband hadn't bought a different phone. At this point i am just chit chatting. I apologize for not being more helpful. I wont do this type of review again...promise.
