We bought this phone b/c a previous vtech phone served us well. This one, however is just missing too many key features that I took for granted. For instance, there is no speaker phone feature (was great for when I was put on hold) and the ringer volume control only works if you press it WHILE the phone is ringing, and then resets to "loud" for the next call - in my house the phone keeps waking up the baby and I can't set any handset or the base to silent mode. Also, switching to pick up call waitibg is a crapshoot, you never know if you will disconnect one or both people. If you want a totally stripped down phone, this might work for you. For anyone else, it's a step down.

I bought this phone because of the price and the dual handsets. I spend a good deal of time on the phone and I am very pleased with the battery life. I am not sure if the other reviewer maybe had a faulty phone because my handset that isn't plugged into the phone jack works great and I have it on the opposite end of my house. I also don't have any echo's or buzzing noises in my background. I can spend at least four hours on one phone without the battery dropping any notches, so I would highly recommend this phone to anyone looking for good battery life.

I bought this phone a few days ago, and all you get is an echo, buzzing and lots of other annoying sounds from it. but the worst part about this phone is that when you pick up the handset that doesnt have the phone cord it doesn't even work unless it is right next to the other phone. it just sucks.

With the first shipment, one phone did not work. Return was easy and fast. The new shipment had two working handsets. Everything is easy to set up. Reception is fine. The only odd thing, when I'm tucking the phone between my shoulder and ear, I sometimes inadvertently hit the transfer call button. I immediately hit the talk button, and the call resumes. Not a big deal.
