Ok, first things first, I don't have the red phone. I have the plain old white model which only cost $19.99! White, red, green, who cares. The bottom line is that for the money, this phone is a great value. While it is practically featureless, when compared to most 900MHz phones on the market today, it has very clear reception, and will allow you to wander perhaps 100 feet from the base before getting cut off. The speaker volume control is just about the only feature this phone has, and it comes in handy when talking with soft speakers. If you are shopping for a new cordless phone, and are looking for a real value, don't even bother with the old 49MHz so-called 'analog' cordless phones. Analog cordless phones have poor sound quality, and anyone in your neighborhood with a similar analog cordless phone can listen in on all of your calls. For an extra dollar or two, get this phone, you'll be glad you did!

I've had my red VTech VT-01-9111 900 MHz Cordless Phone for nearly 6 months now, and I love it still. Ergonomically, it fits in your hand, and gently hugs your ear. Clarity is excellent -- I've never had a problem. It has the standard options (phone number program, re-dial, etc.), but also let's you choose from 4 ring styles. And of course: the price is excellent. I couldn't be more pleased!

I could not be more pleased with this phone! It has a cool look. The sound quality is perfect and the price is also amazing. This phone has 10 speed dials which are very handy. With features like, out or range indication, low battery indicator and handset locator the phone could not be better!

I bought the vtech because my panasonic had fallen a few too many times. The vtech is just the right size for my pocket and seems to work very well! I was concerned when I read in one of the comments that it didn't have a flash button but it does it's the phone button. I'm very pleased with the VT9111.

Do you enjoy freedom? These phones give you freedom - cord-freedom that is.... The V-tech phones are low cost and very, very stylish. They may be antique analog, but they still provide a very comfortable way of chatting. I have bought two. They are effectively my easiest way of calling my mum in England while lying comfortably in my bed. A little analog hiss from time to time when we are more than 50 yards away from the base, but otherwise we find the signal excellent around the house.
One reason I only gave four stars is that there is no display on the phone. You have to put your own 'aide-memoire' on the phone as there is no provision to see which of the memories has been assigned to whom. This will of course lower the 'chic-ness' of an otherwise excellent looking and performing phone. I suspect that V-Tech are on their way to making themselves the #1 phone in the US. They clearly understand that a well made and well styled phone is popular. However - if they are becoming so popular, then an upmarket styling is probably required for the family room.

This is the perfect Dormitory phone. I've had it for two years now, it's reliable and works great. The sound is superb, and the battery lasts a very long time, so you can talk for as long as you want. I highly recommend it for HS seniors going off to live in a college dorm. For this great price you get a great product. What more can I say.
