Good phones, but could be better
on January 5, 2009
We got this phone system to replace an AT&T cordless phone system that quit working. The phones are compact, light weight, and stylish. They work fine. I haven't had any problems with static or low volume. But they are not perfect. The batteries that come with them are not very good. Even with full charge the battery runs out very quickly. It uses rechargable AAA 740 mAh batteries. I recommend that anyone considering this purchase get some better batteries at the same time.
There are a couple of other quirks that I don't really like. If you want to look at the recent calls you actually have to go into the call log, which is annoying. On my old phone you just had to arrow up and it went right into the call history. On this one you arrow up and it takes you to a menu and then you have to open the call log. It's just one extra step, but it seems excessive.
Even though I haven't had trouble with the sound, the lack of a volume control is a little annoying.
Other than those minor problems, I have found this phone to be adequate and the quality to be acceptable.
