I bought this phone to use in my dorm. The steel/cement structure is a perfect insulator to many things, including cell signal. This phone was to replace my cell when I was in my room. When I opened the box, I was amazed at how small it was and impressed by how clear the sound was. Set up took less than 2 minutes.

I was surprised by one thing: the cord is not replaceable. There is no jack in the receiver, which means, if you break the jack, you would have to buy a new phone (or rejack the end with an rj-11 jack) but at around $7, I really don't worry.

Bottom line: great emergency phone, dorm phone, cheap phone. Would not hold up to a lot of use, but for a spare, it will do the job.

This is a nice basic corded phone, which as a wall or desk phone displays the caller ID to the outside before you pick up the phone to answer. However, you cannot change the cord length, and this information is not given in the mfgr's discription. Be advised if you, as I usually do, change to a longer cord.

After reading some of the reviews here I was nervous that this model would be a little too 'no-frills' without a redial button. However, I own 4 other basic corded phones from GE and Panasonic and they all have a redial button- I think it's just a standard button as much as the numbers themselves. Sure enough this model DOES have a redial button, as well as a flash button. There's also the ringer and speaker volume slider switches right on the handset. The handset seems durable enough. It has a surprising heft to it so I'm sure it can withstand being dropped every now and then. There's not much to say about the call quality since it's a landline phone- it works, plain and simple. The base feels a bit flimsy though. It's very light and the plastic seems thin. I suppose it's not the important part of the phone anyways. There are some silicone feet on the base that keeps it from sliding around on your desk- a nice touch. As others have mentioned, the cord is directly hardwired into the handset, so if it goes you have to replace the entire phone. The cord is 66" from the base to the plug, and there's a built in cord retainer in the base in case you want to take up the slack. The footprint is only 2.5" x 8", very slim indeed. The only other thing is that the color is matte black and not glossy as pictured, but I don't care either way. Overall a well-constructed, very affordable, no-frills telephone that barely takes up any room on your desk.

This is an absolutely basic cordline phone. I bought it to have a phone available in my computer room. I plugged it into my Canon printer/fax, which is plugged into the wall. That way, I can pick up the phone if someone calls my landline while I'm in that room, and we have a corded phone in the house in case of a power failure. (For the benefit of you kids out there -- if you have old fashioned phone service, as opposed to digital phone, then a wireline, non-cordless phone will still work in a power failure).

This phone is slim and black, and looks fine. Frankly, I never notice it unless someone calls. There are a couple holes in the base, so you could probably hang it on a wall with two screws. Other than that is completely basic. It doesn't have caller id, and other features are bare bones - two ring settings, a redial button, and a flash button, but not much else.

Still, at the price, it's a great backup phone. Calls are clear, and it does everything I want, which is just to make and receive calls.

I noticed on another review that they couldn't get the phone to work on a wall mount because it would slide off. Note that this is NOT TRUE. There is a small plastic piece on the area that depresses the hang up switch on the base. You have to remove this and flip it upside down, making sure the small tab is nearest to the front. I have it hanging on my kitchen wall and it works great.

One thing to keep in mind that the cable is one long cable that goes through the base to the wall and attaches inside the phone. You cannot replace it, there is no jack on the handset end. If you want a longer coiled phone cable for the handset you are out of luck. The base is cheap, it is just molded plastic and is extremely light. If you want a cheap phone for occasional use, it works well. I would not buy this for an everyday device.

Uniden Slimline Corded Phone with CID/CW - UN-1260BK
Purchased as a back up phone during power failures, I find this phone perfect sound is clear, size is good it is wall mountable, caller ID is a little hard to see as it is not back lit. Only issue is hand set is hard wired, so you can't easily add a longer cord but overall it serves it's purpose.

The product description does not mention that the cord is attached. You cannot replace the cord with a longer cord if you are planning to use the phone more than a few few from the wall outlet. It cannot be used on a table which is not adjacent to the phone outlet. If you decide to wall mount the phone, the cord must be wound up in a channel located under the phone. It requires a bit of patience to carefully wind the cord so that if fits in the channel and there is exactly the correct amount of cord left over to plug it into the recepticle in the wall outlet. When I consider the price of the phone when compared to other phones, this attribute certainly makes it less highly rated. In addition, it is not backlit.

I was looking for some cheap phones to put in our bedrooms and living rooms. We no longer use a landline much since our cell phones have so many minutes. We now use the magic jack and only make occassional calls. I was hoping this phone would be a good choice.

Pros: cheap, nice looking
Cons: poorly made, when pushing the phone buttons it doesn't have much sound feedback to tell you if you've pushed it, the LED on the front has no light so you cannot see the numbers you are calling or the people calling you, and unfortunately it takes batteries to use the caller ID (that may be standard and I didn't knock of points for that, but it sucks).

Of the 4 phones I ordered, one was bad out of the box, but that could be a fluke. To me, it's a pain making a call, since you really have to pay attention when pushing the buttons. Most other phones give you a nice loud sound when pushing the number buttons.

All in all, I'm sorry I went so cheap on this phone, and wish I'd spent just a few dollars more and gotten something better.

I wanted a phone that we could use when our power goes out. This phone seemed to fit our needs but every time we try to dial a number half the numbers don't work. It takes multiple tries pushing each number firmly and slowly to dial out. Not worth the money.

Why would anyone design a phone with buttons on the receiver where your hand goes? Easily-pushed buttons. That I never use for anything. It defies logic.

I accidentally hang up on my friends so often that I'm afraid they'll get a complex.

It's also so lightweight that I'm forever picking the whole phone up with the receiver enough that it falls down inconveniently. Horrible, horrible phone. If the maker has not already, they should issue a recall and replace all of these for free.

In stores, it is hard to find a simple corded phone. I think this was the only one @ Target when I purchased it.

In general, it's been hard to find a simple corded phone that works well in several years. The quality is usually terrible. The sound is often poor. I guess customers who want a few simple extra phones are not of interest any more.
