Tragic WASTE of Money,
This review is from: Thomson 28112EE3 6.0 DECT Triple Handset Answering System (Silver) (Office Product)
I would prefer two dixie cups and a piece of string...
Honestly, I am considered pretty tech savvy by my friends and family, and normally can get just about anything to work. Not these phones.
After struggling with a set of 2.4 GHz phones, I finally decided to try the DECT 6.0 phones. It so happened that these SEEMED to fit the bill.
How sadly wrong I was...
They have trouble connecting, there is lot's of digital noise, and we've tried every remedy. GE's customer support had no idea what I was talking about (I, of course) had to use my cell phone to make the call. We were told to send them in to the company.
Trying to make a call is often an ordeal, and I will replace them with the next crank type wall phone I can find.
Ergonomically speaking, they are comfortable to hold and have withstood frequent poundings on the desktop with hardly a scratch. I think these boys could survive an IED! Of course, with the frustration factor, they'd have to.
The last two things I hate is the backlighting... it isn't the keys that are backlit, it is the ring around them, providing NO help dialing in the dark. Also, since I have AT&T voice mail, the phones frequently light up every 5 minutes or so as the message box is queried, making it impossible to keep in the bedroom.
Run, don't walk, AWAY from these phones. Or better yet, support our troops by sending a set to every Al-Qaeda operative you know. That should shut 'em down better than a flurry of JDAMs.
