Product Description

Product Description

AT&T 5830 5.8 GHz Cordless Phone - Cordless telephone technology has reached a new plateau with the 5.8GHz spread spectrum frequency. Utilizing this 5.8GHz, distance & clarity are increased many fold. In addition, and most importantly, you have the ability to add multiple handsets to the base! This unit supports up to 6 separate handsets (1 is included). Analog & Digital Clock Displays Spare Battery Charger Power Failure Operation (with spare battery installed) Lighted Keypad Line In Use Indication Hold/Mute Last 10 Number Redial Headset Compatible (2.5mm jack) Color - Silver

This innovative cordless telephone operates on the powerful 5.8 GHz frequency. Its classic design provides comfort and ease of use. Advanced features include adjustable sound settings, the ability to use up to six handsets, a speakerphones in the handset, and a duplex speakerphone in the base. (Duplex technology lets both parties talk and be heard simultaneously.)

The dual-band (5.8 GHz/2.4 GHz) design allows the base unit to transmit with more power in the 5.8 GHz frequency band or with greater efficiency at 2.4 GHz. The phone's true duplex transmission keeps the incoming and outgoing signals from interfering with each other.

The LCD on the handset provides caller ID/call waiting information (subscription required though your local phone company). The 5830 also provides talking caller ID, which announces the name or number of incoming callers.

The 5830's expandability, up to five additional handsets for a total of six, eliminates the need to hard-wire multiple extensions throughout your home. One phone jack and one power outlet is all you need to connect the 5830 base station and handset, while each additional model 5800 handset requires only a power outlet for its compact charger/cradle. Calls can be transferred from one handset to another.

The handset receiver lights up with incoming calls and can also be set to vibrate. It stores 50 names and numbers and works with your caller ID service to remember the last 50 callers. Sound Select lets you adjust bass, treble, and midrange to your liking. A spare-battery charging system enables the telephone to work even during a power outage. Choose from eight ringer melodies. The system is backed by a one-year warranty.

BOTTOM LINE: You've probably already discovered the lack of full-featured consumer-level cordless phones out there, especially in the 5.8 GHz category and that you really have to move into the SOHO dual-line systems and spend a good deal more to get a full-featured phone. But the bottom line is if you are looking for a full featured, single line, consumer level cordless phone, this is it - it's not perfect, but you don't have many other options in this price range.
THE ALSO-RANS: Panasonic KX-TG2563F - feature-packed, but 2.4 GHz and bad quality reviews (just released 5.8 GHz expandable system out - probably same quality issues). Siemens 4215 - great form factor, but 2.4 GHz, no headphone jack (pricier 2-line 8800 has jack), no base functionality and lukewarm quality reviews. CIDCO's 2.4 GHz D271's - perfect feature set but not in same price range (only marketed through your local Bell company so you're not going to find a deal). AT&T's 2355 - basically the 2.4 GHz version of the 5830/40. Bought it/returned it due to poor speakerphone (don't believe it's full duplex) and handset call quality (I believe it's being test marketed only through Best Buy (as of 5/03) which indicates they may be trying to work the bugs out of the phone).
FINALISTS: The finalists were the 5830/5840 and the VTech 5831, both 5.8 GHz expandable systems. Both are made by VTech, which explains nearly identical feature sets and form factors (and model numbers). AT&T phones are designed by the VTech subsidiary Advanced American Telephones under a licensing agreement with AT&T (my guess is AAT was a Ma Bell spin-off years back that VTech acquired).

This phone system is almost perfect. It works so much better than the Siemen's 2400 it replaced. The speakerphone (in both the base unit and the headset) is very handy and the Caller ID voice announce feature is pretty cool. It fits very nicely in your hand and feels like a quality piece of electronics. Very nice display and the buttons are easy to press. And, it has great looks. Battery life also seems very good. As much as this phone has going for it, I can't for the life of me figure out why they would choose to not add some very basic features that other phones have had for years. 1.) You can't share phonebooks between handsets 2.) No speed-dial feature 3.) A rather cumbersome menu system 4.) No way to insert pauses in stored numbers so you can't program the phone to access your phone company-hosted voicemail and automatically enter in your passcode. 5.) No phonebook or number memory on the base (which makes sense since there's also no display).
If the phone had these basic features, it would easily rate a 5. That's the deal with these phone systems - there simply isn't a perfect phone system. I've looked at Uniden, AT&T, Seimens, Panasonic, and VTech. They are all lacking in way or another. It's maddening that these systems are sooo expensive, and yet manufacturers can't seem to find their way to implement feature sets commensurate with the price of the phones. Cell phones can be had for far cheaper with far greater convenience features. There's no reason why these features couldn't be added to home phone systems, especially when you have to pay ... for each handset. The Seimens 2400 series phones had many of the features missing on this phone, but the quality/reliability of at least these 2400 series Seimens phones is pure {junk}.

If you have been looking for a 5.8 GHz phone, the AT&T 5800 series is the best on the market, period. I have been doing extensive research for a new 5.8 GHz phone for about 6 months and have read almost every single review for 5.8 GHz phones.
There are currently six 5.8 GHz cordless phones on the market right now.
1. AT&T 5.8 GHz
2. GE 5.8 GHz
3. Motorola 5.8 GHz
4. Panasonic 5.8 GHz
5. Uniden 5.8 GHz
6. V-Tech 5.8 GHz
Of these 6 phones, I have found that the AT&T is the best all-around. The AT&T offers the best sound quality, ease of use, design, and displays. One thing that must be noted is that the AT&T 5800 series is not a true 5.8 GHz system. It is a full-duplex 5.8/2.4 GHz phone system. Phones that use a dual system 5.8/2.4 GHz still have great clearity and security, but better battery life than true 5.8 GHz systems because of lower power output and lower energy consumption at the 2.4 GHz frequency.
1. Excellent build quality
2. Superb clearity
3. Easy to use and setup
4. Great caller-ID functions
5. Great battery life
6. Nice lighting and displays
7. Good working speakerphone
8. Good looking high-tech design
1. The only thing I would change about this phone is the antenna. On the next redesign of this phone, AT&T (Advanced American Telephones) should make the antenna smaller and not integrate it into the plastic body of the phone. Or, they should get rid of it completely like Uniden has done.
If you are looking for the right 5.8 GHz phone, this is it. I have the 5830 model and couldn't be any happier. The talking caller ID is such a nice feature to have. I don't even have to get up or pick up the phone to know who is calling. I have a 802.
