Top Customer Reviews
1) The base unit can be configured as a wireless extender with about 7 keystrokes. This added at least two bars in the master bedroom side of my house. I also now have effective coverage where I like to sit outside on my deck, so among other things I can now answer the landline from there.
2) This unit replaced a "wireless" phone I had previously installed. Removing that obsolete hardware really cleaned up my wireless network a lot.
3) I placed the base station where it was more effective as a wireless extender and the extension handset where I previously had the base. Everything useful on a daily basis can be accomplished from the Smartphone Connect app or the extension handset.
4) The Smartphone Connect app effectively integrates my wireless phone with my landline, which was previously an irritating, expensive, useless annoyance. My wireless service goes out occasionally where I live, so I have to have the landline for emergencies. Now I can choose which service I want from the app screen and use the same contact list. Although contacts can be selectively downloaded to the phone, each of the 4 possible smartphone users can have their own private contact list. The only thing is that all of the phone numbers must be stored with the country code, "1" in the USA, so that they are compatible with the landline.
5) The Smartphone Connect app has a "hold" button, so you can answer the landline, put it on hold, and pick up with another device. If it's an annoying sales call it can be left on hold forever :)
Here are some things that would improve the Smartphone Connect app:
1) There needs to be support for Windows 10, on both the Intel and Windows Phone (ARM) chip sets. Currently only Android and IOS are supported,
2) The app can be used on both and iPhone and an iPad. You have to indicate that you don't want only iPad apps. The app works great on a iPad, except, at least on IOS 9.2, the display doesn't rotate. You have to hold the iPad in portrait orientation.
3) There is an annoying "Smartphone Connect Waiting for configuration data (S1-03)" message on the iPad when the base is configured as a Wifi extender.
The call blocking memory holds 100 numbers and then I suppose we'll have to unblock some older ones to save new ones. If I were offering a suggestion to Panasonic I'd suggest a kind of analysis for the call block function in which you can discover which call-block numbers haven't been used lately so that you can un-save them in order to block new annoying numbers. On the whole we're very happy with this new phone and we (no longer) recommend it. (See below)
Edit: It has some odd bugs that drops my rating from 5 stars to 2 stars. You can choose a "Silent" mode and even program times in which it should be silent. "Should be" means you can silence the handset but not the base unit, and what good is a silent handset if the base unit is ringing away? Also, factory tech support has so far been a bad joke - "Try this other portal, please." I really suspect there is a function that allows you to change or silence the base unit ringtone but it doesn't appear in my copy of the instructions. At best, it leaves you with a basic ringtone for the base unit and a different one for the handset - irritating sound.
Second edit: Though not documented in the manual, you can silence the base unit (but not change its ring tone) by lowering the ring volume of the base unit all the way down. With the base unit silenced, we now again recommend it.
