Basic phone but poor even for the price
on September 7, 2010
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.
