Note: The Uniden DXAI5188-2 is no longer being manufactured. Check out the the newer Uniden DXAI5588-2 with similar features.

Uniden's DXAI5188-2 cordless phone system offers a wealth of benefits--5.8 GHz analog technology, an integrated digital answering machine, caller ID and call waiting capability, as well as an additional handset. Still, the DXAI5188-2 requires only one phone jack for operation. Simply plug the main base unit into a phone jack, and the extra handset will configure itself to "talk" wirelessly with the base unit. The base unit also houses the digital answering system.

All call features are accessed through the phone system's handsets, including last number redial, call transfer between handsets, and convenient volume control. Each handset has a three-line backlit LCD for displaying caller information and for access to saved numbers, both of which are available even while you're taking another call. Information and menus can be displayed in your choice of English, French, or Spanish. Handsets are also compatible with most hearing aids and headsets (sold separately). The base unit and charging cradle are desk or wall mountable.

Plus, I heard clicking noise and static.

I went back to Target to purchase a new one and mostly only saw Uniden phones (a product I will never buy again)!

It also can't handle being anywhere near my computer.

We were given this phone as a Xmas present, and I'm sure the giver researched it carefully, but it's going back to Target. I suspect the giver thought that with the dual handset two people could be on the line at the same time, however this is not possible... only one handset can communicate with the base at a time... you can transfer a call from handset to handset, but it's easier to just walk over and hand the other person the phone. I liked the other features but missed having a speakerphone on the base. However, these aren't the reasons for return. It's going back because THE RECEPTION IS AWFUL. My 700 mghz Radio Shack does a great job.. I can walk practically .1 of mile away from the base before I have problems. This system was meant to replace the Radio Shack which after 6 years' use began to have battery problems. I can't seem to walk from one end of the house to the other without it losing (completely) the connection. I don't live in a large house. It also can't handle being anywhere near my computer. Perhaps if you have no computers in your 1 bedroom apartment, this might be the phone for you.

I purchased this phone based on Consumer's Reports "Best Buy" Rating. Static has not been much of a problem. It was easy to set up and program. Only disappointment-- it does not have a speaker phone function.

We had a 2.4 GHz Olympia wireless phone system - horrible echo and static. Finally made the jump to 5.8 GHz because we went wireless with 4 computers and XBox Live. We only needed one extra handset, so notice that you cannot add extra handsets to this system. Reception and voice clarity are fantastic within our house and more than 1 block away at the community pool. Answering machine is easy to understand and the ringers are very loud on highest setting (I lost 50% of my hearing on one side). Only 10 numbers for memory storage, and you have to enter each handset memory separately (drag). Have tested use of this phone around all our computers, the microwave, and game adapter - no problemo. I highly recommend this phone if you don't need more than one extra handset.

Everytime i used the phone anywhere in the house all i got was static. i had to consistantly hit the channel button and still that did not solve the problem. for a 5.8ghz phone i think it is really poor. i have a uniden 900mhz which is so much better. i returned this product and continue to use my 900mhz phone. wouldnt recommend to anyone. that is at least anyone that wants to hear the other person clear...

Got this phone as a Christmas gift. The clarity is fantastic. However, you can not use both receivers at the same time. For instance, let's say "Grandma" calls and your kids want to use both phone extensions to talk to Grandma at the same time. It can't be done with this phone. The active extension blocks out the inactive one. You must physically transfer the caller to the other extension. We are using an ATT wireless system which is around 4 years old and it offers this capability.

Also, this system does not appear to be expandable. So, you can't simply buy additional receivers to add to your system.

Overall, I do not recommend this system.

I have two phone lines, and one has an expandable phone system by Panasonic (2.4 gHz). I wanted to have another line in just two rooms, so I thought this would be good. Plus, I thought that the 5.8 gHz offered by the Uniden phone would be really clear... THE 2.4 gHz HAS MORE CLARITY THAN THE 5.8 gHz!!! Plus, I heard clicking noise and static. The Panasonic 2.4 is crystal clear, while the Uniden 5.8 doesn't even register. The moral: Buy a __trustworthy__ brand.

Don't waste your money on this phone. I too had the VERY LOUD clicking noise, not only when I walked around, but when I was in the same room as the base. I also picked up my neighbors conversations, which never happened on my other cordless phone, an AT&T. I will be returning this phone to Target ASAP. Big waste of money.

I purchased this phone and was very dissappointed. I have other Uniden phones for my business that are great but this phone is terrible. When I am talking the phone goes completely dead. The batteries life is null as this happens when I pick up the phone from the charger. The coverage is also average in comparision to my other uniden. I haven't even used the answering machine or the other features as I plan to return the phone.
