Vtech DECT 6.0 Digital Three Handset Cordless Phone System with Digital Answer Device and Caller ID

Amazon.com

The Vtech DS6121-3 DECT 6.0 Digital Cordless Phone System with Three Handsets and Digital Answering System provides the utmost in sound quality and convenience for a home or office. The DS6121-3 runs on the DECT 6.0 frequency band for superior sound quality and range. DECT 6.0 is not compromised by common home appliances; wireless networks will not disrupt or be disrupted by it; and hackers cannot eavesdrop on it as easily as older frequency bandwidths.

The DS6121-3 includes three handsets (along with a base and two charging cradles) that let you use all handsets through a single phone jack. You can intercom between handsets and calls can be transferred between them -- no more shouting, "It's for you!" You can also conference an outside call between them. Speakerphones are built into each handset, allowing you to enjoy hands-free conversations wherever you roam. The large blue backlit display makes menu navigation simple. A 50-name-and-number phonebook directory stores and dials frequently called numbers, and the phone is caller ID/call waiting compatible.

The Vtech DS6121-3 has a built-in digital answering system with 15 minutes of recording time. With an all-digital design, there are no tapes to mess with and you can easily jump from one message to another without any wait. With remote message retrieval, you can call in from anywhere to get your messages. A backlit message counter clearly shows you how many messages you've received. Users can choose from a set of ringtones to personalize their phone, and the slim handset has a blue backlit keypad. A wall mount bracket is included for placement options.

Note: I've also tried the Panasonic KX-TH1212 so will inject some comparison notes where differences stand out.

I like the phone's ergonomics. Good size, well positioned buttons, menus that make sense (unlike Panasonic's). Looks very nice without being overdone. Voice quality and range is very good, although, I thought Panasonic had a slight edge here. On the other hand, unlike the Panasonic, this VTech shows you the caller id sometime today.
Here is why it went back to the store:
- No headset plug. This kills it for me as I need to join conference calls when working from home. Speakerphone is not good enough. Actually, the speakerphone is another weak point. It seems to fade once in awhile. Panasonic's speakerphone didn't have this problem but I haven't used either for too long.
- Can not dial back a missed call. I mean, you technically can, but the Vtech insists on defaulting the number to 7 digits without the 1 in front. My phone provider requires the +1 to dial out. You have to press the `number format' button every time you want it to return a missed call so that it chooses the format you need. No, you can not program it to remember your preferred setting.
- No belt clip. My 7 year-old Vtech (the one I am unsuccessfully have been trying to replace) and the Panasonic have it. My wife can't live without it (and also the headset).
- Custom batteries. This is be biggest issue with my old Vtech. The battery replacement (which I am likely to need in a year or two) costs as much as a new phone. Panasonic uses rechargeable AAAs which makes a lot more sense.

I have had many VTech phones. The LS6121 is my first Dect6. This was the easiest to set up. When you save a number on one phone it is saved on the others. Voice prompts take you through all the setup options.

There is no wall mount available. You cannot add extra phones. Tech support is only available at their website or by email. Email takes several days to get a reply. I was able to get some help by going to their sales department option & complaining about service (I tried to be nice)!

Verified Purchase
I had been shopping around for a cordless phone with 2 base sets and based on other V-tech reviews, I decided to try this one. It is nice, but the speaker for the handset I got seems a bit too low, even on the highest volume level. I find myself really having to concentrate to listen to the other person. Although, the speaker phone is great, but I don't plan on using the speaker phone all the time. I wish I could interchange the two.

The shared phone book is a nice feature and I have no complaints on the answering machine. But this was and probably will be my last V-tech phone. It is used now on the secondary line at the house, which is hardly used.

I was having difficulty with this phone on the day I bought it. I called tech support and they wouldn't even talk to me until I had had the phone for two days because they said it had to charge 24 hours. My question had nothing to do with the charge. After only a few months (5-6) the battery would go dead after a 15 minute conversation or after sitting out unused a few hours. We just stopped using it except for the answering machine. Yesterday I decided to try some new batteries. I get all my mail in my post office box. When I tried to get the batteries delivered to my po box, a message came up saying they didn't deliver to po boxes. When I put in my street address, another message came up saying my delivery address didn't match my billing address. So I couldn't place the order. Today while reviewing my online accounts, I noticed my visa was charged for the batteries!!!!!! This phone and this company are to be avoided.

Generally, it is a good product. Voice is clear, occasionally voice will disappear for a brief time.

Phone reception is clear but reception distance leaves something to be desired. Also seems to be uni-directional in signal reception. Other than that, it is satisfactory.
