Simple, corded operation
Reliable, corded operation eliminates the search for a misplaced cordless handset, while sturdy construction ensures long-lasting performance. Clean design makes it an easy fit on any counter or wall.
Caller ID/call waiting
Allows you to view the name, number, time and date of incoming calls at a glance, even those on call waiting.
Clearspeak dial-in-base speakerphone
Allow you to speak and listen without holding the handset. This leaves your hands free to do other things and lets more people in on the conversation.

The telephone works without AC Power. For the Caller ID to function, four AA batteries (not included) are necessary.
Large keypad numbers are easier to see when dialing.
Both the ringer and receiver have volume controls so that you can adjust them to your comfort level.
Compatible with Hearing Aids
TIA-1083 Compliant is a higher standard for cordless phones than just being hearing aid compatible. This standard applies to cordless phones and is especially important when purchasing cordless phones for seniors, as many seniors wear hearing aids.

Top Customer Reviews
My needs in order of priority:
1. No electrical hookup - should run off phone line, like all old analog phones
2. Need speaker phone for occasional conference calls
3. Need Caller ID to screen calls.
4. Nice to have - programmable phone number bank
5. Ringer control - should be able to turn off ringer or make it go to visual
6. Should be able to put caller on hold or mute.
7. No answering machine needed
Needless to say - this was the only phone I found which could meet all of the above. The need to have one phone in the house which can be used if the electricity is off just made all the other phones miss out in some other aspects in the list above. Mostly they wouldnt have caller ID. All these features in this phone work on 4 -AA batteries and we will see how the consumption rate on that is.
It was easy to setup, though the wall mount , did have an issue with the hook for the handset. It just wouldnt slide out.... had to bring the screw driver and pry it loose.
Next, I will programme the frequently dialed numbers and see how that goes. It seems fairly easy from the instruction book.
So far I have tested the speakerphone and the handset - the sound quality is great! Our previous phone was introducing a lot of static in the calls, so this is a good replacement and I am happy with the price. ANd we have freed up one of the electrical sockets as this needs no electric connection!!
- Good sound quality (both ends) using either handset or speakerphone.
- Straightforward configuration.
- Easy-to-store speed dial buttons.
- Large easy-to-read number keys.
- Decent manual.
- Visibility of the LCD display a bit muted even on the highest contrast setting.
- No headphone jack.
- Finer control over volume adjustment would be nice.
- Battery Life indicator not very useful. It is too small to easily notice, and is supposed to transition from a low condition to extremely low by flashing. I've only noticed a low condition once and never witnessed it flashing. Typically, you just notice the batteries died.
New this Model
- The color scheme is now two-tone with the bottom half gray.
- Re-styled handset. It's heavier with a more solid feel.
- Chain dialing. Interesting idea. You can prerecord number sequences for use in voice menus, such as keying in a lengthy account number for your utility service. Not sure how useful this will be.
- Grippier rubber feet. Older models slipped around more easily on slick counter tops.
Other Reviewer Dislikes
1. Handset cord not long enough.
Perfectly acceptable for desktop or side-stand use. If you need a longer cord for walking around or in the kitchen, you can always buy one.
2. Callers hear an annoying click when volume is adjusted up or down.
I tested this from both a landline and cell phone. Did not hear any clicks or beeps.
3. Callers hear an annoying click when phone is muted or unmuted.
Handset Use - Did not hear any clicks or beeps. You could hear the ambient background noise go away then return, but what would you expect? The Mute function turns off the microphone.
Speakerphone Use - As with handset use, when the phone is muted the caller will hear the ambient background noise go away, but I did not hear any clicks or beeps. When the phone is unmuted, however, they WILL hear a slight beep. Here's why:
By design, the user hears a beep as a form of audio feedback anytime the volume is adjusted or the phone muted or unmuted. The beep is not intended for the caller on the other end of the line.
The caller hears a faint beep when the phone is unmuted on speakerphone because sequentially the phone first unmutes (turns the microphone back on) then emits the confirmation beep. This sequence allows the caller to hear the beep through the speakerphone microphone. It's fairly muffled but can be heard.
This is a design oversight. It should beep first then reactivate the microphone. Someone should contact the company and let them know, so it can be changed in future models.
If you've been a consumer for any length of time, you have probably noticed some companies take a successful product and over time cheapen it until it is a shadow of its former self. They do this to grow the business or maximize profits by reducing cost.
The CL2909 represents a departure from that thinking. In several small yet significant ways it is a better phone than previous models. Highly recommend it to anyone seeking a basic landline home phone.
Original review stated the phone did not have an internal battery to store settings while changing AAs. Untrue. It does and although the manual states it can hold the settings for 10 minutes while you change batteries, I've gone as long as two days and the settings were still there.
More on battery life. I now own two of these phones, which are used in different parts of the house and in different ways. AA battery life varies dramatically dependent on how frequently you use speakerphone.
Heavy speakerphone use results in 6 month average life while non-speakerphone is a year. When you consider how many things the batteries power (LCD display, speed-dial, display dial, speakerphone), I guess 6 months is reasonable.
I also like AT&T's caller ID software that can be set up to know whether incoming calls need 7, 10, or 11 digits for a call back. Some other phones make you toggle through the 7, 10, and 11 digit options woth the # key before you can call back.
It's been working great for us. I've been pleasantly surprised that the ringer (when set on low) is very unobtrusive.
The only thing that isn't perfect is when programming the phone, it isn't completely intuitive how to program it (it could be easier).
For the price, features (speaker, caller ID, etc.), and general function, I'd say I'm very satisfied.
