Top customer reviews
After ditching my standard land line telephone and going to Vonage in 2004, I finally (June 2013) also dropped this broadband VOIP service provider since the rate plans being offered were completely unrealistic and simply did not meet my usage needs. Why spend nearly $30.00 per month for the cheapest Vonage offering which includes several hundred or even unlimited monthly minutes when my home phone line hardly got used at all? No truly low-use plans were available, so bye bye Vonage!
I have now gone completely wireless with two different cell phone lines and this Panasonic phone system has proven to be the crucial missing link in optimizing the use of my cell phones when I am at home.
Both my cell phones pair easily via Bluetooth with the base unit of the Panasonic system which can link up to two cell phone lines. If possible place the main base of the phone system in a location where you have the best cell phone reception to optimize your results. At least for me, cell phone pairing seems to work better when the cell phone(s) are near the base.
Once this is done, I can essentially completely forget that I have cell phones when I am home. Everything with regard to making and receiving telephone calls is accomplished using the Panasonic phone system.
NOTE: The link-to-cell pairing functionality (as do many other functions on this telephone system) require that non-intuitive numerical codes be entered via any handset (not via the base!) at the appropriate time (e.g., for link-to-cell Enter [MENU]#6241 or [MENU]#6242 for cell phone lines 1 or 2 respectively). Therefore, always be sure to keep the detailed Operating Instructions, which truly do cover everything you need to know, readily available. I simply keep mine near the base of the phone system. If you should lose them, have no fear. They are more than likely downloadable from the Panasonic Web Site or available elsewhere on the Internet.
Receiving a phone call on either cell line works seamlessly; just answer the phone using any handset. When making an outgoing going call you can easily select which cell phone to use on the bright paper white display on any one of the Panasonic handsets.
A land line of any sort is NOT needed to use this Panasonic phone system. You can use one if you like; the capability for doing so is there if you need it.
If like me you are going completely wireless (1 or 2 cell phones only!), then be sure to select the appropriate set up menu option for doing so (see the detailed instructions provided) and not only will you get rid of the annoying constant reminder on the handset displays to check you land line when you don't have one, but you will also activate some additional time-saving features specifically pertinent to cell phone use when pressing the various buttons on the Panasonic phones (e.g., you can directly hit the green phone button to answer instead of first having to select cell phone mode when you also happen to have a land line).
What I especially notice and like when using my cell phones at home in combination with this Pansonic phone system is the greatly improved audio quality available through the Panasonic handsets. There is a day and night difference in clarity when using either of my cell phones directly versus first processing the pertinent audio signals via Panasonic's DECT 6.0 technology. A noise reduction feature is also available when needed.
It's also pretty nifty to have what essentially amounts to spoken caller ID included with the Panasonic phone system as it not only displays the incoming number on its big, bright and clear display, but also reads out the numbers individually in an easy to understand female voice. If the incoming call/number is for an entry already found in the phone book (can hold 3,000 entries) of the phone system, the voice will also identify the caller by name, if appropriate.
Speed dial capabilities are also available on this phone system, as is the capability of setting a time of day when you would like the Panasonic KXTG7873S not to ring/answer incoming calls such as when you are sleeping. This is definitely a feature that I am using; who needs a wrong number at 3:00 am! Ditto for the call block feature that lets you eliminate up to 250 annoying, repetitive callers permanently from your life! It also includes the ability to block all callers who do not display a phone number such as "Out of area" calls, etc.
You can obtain very effective additional assistance in blocking telemarketing and similar unwanted phone calls by subscribing to the free Internet service called NOMOROBO which is not yet available for all telephone service providers. Check their Web Site for more detailed information and to see whether you qualify. If you are able to subscribe to the NOMOROBO service, you can use it to do the initial grunt work of screening calls. Anything unwanted that still manages to get through then can be specifically and quickly blocked by the Panasonic phone system itself.
There are many more optional features available with this phone system, most of which I am certain that I will never use. However, some of them may of interest to other potential buyers. If there is a specific indispensable feature that you are looking for, this Panasonic phone system very likely has it. Nevertheless, be sure to do appropriate research in this regard either here on Amazon or the Panasonic Web Site on the Internet before purchasing.
This purchase so far has been well worth the asking price and I can recommend this cutting edge Pansonic wireless phone technology without reservations.
UPDATE IN FEBRUARY 2014
I have in the meantime once again acquired a land line - specifically a Vonage VOIP line on 50 Mbps WiFi - in light of the fact that Vonage offered me a very attractive monthly rate of only $9.99 (forever with no contract!) as a former customer of many years duration.
This works out to about $13.00 to $14.00 monthly after taxes, etc. which is a big improvement over the $30.00 monthly plus taxes and fees that motivated me to leave Vonage in the first place.
The aforementioned Pansonic phone system has continued to function flawlessly both with my 2 cell phone lines and the new VOIP line - no problems whatsoever using 3 lines.
no dial tone
error message "no link to base"
error message "in use" when it wasn't
"busy" message when it wasn't
And last but not least intermittant audio. This means that everything from the dial tone to people's voice would cut in and out constantly. The only fix seemed to be to unplug the base for at least a minute. This seems to reset it - at least for an hour or two and then the problems resurfaces.
And as far as the base unit goes? Well I bought that for the speaker phone and it's horrible too. The speaker, if you can believe it, is behind where the handset sits. So to hear anyone clearly while talking on the base you have to move the handset out of the way, but as soon as you take the handset off said base the phone automatically transfers the call to the handset. Argh! And everyone I've spoken to via the speaker phone says it sounds horrible on their end. And part of the reason for that seems to be there is no mic on the base unit. It uses the handset's mic. And the handset's mic isn't strong enough to pick up voices from a distance so if you want to talk via speakerphone you have to hold the handset close to your mouth. Now I don't know about the guys at Panasonic but the whole reason I want a speakerphone is so I have my hands free to do work and don't need to hold a phone.
UPDATE: Amazon offered to replace it with a new one, I should have declined but I didn't. After a few days the LCD screen started going crazy. Here's what it looks like now...
I hate the fact that in order to access so many features of the phone you need to have the user manual because you have to enter a bunch of different 3-4 digit codes. Whatever happened to using menus to do this? Some of the features do work with menus but many do not.
There is NO HOLD button on the handsets only the base unit. You have to press two menu options in order to activate the hold feature on the handsets. What brilliant person designed this?
The base station has no way to change the ring tone but you can on the handsets. So in order to not have the ring tone on my base station handset conflict with the base station's unconfigureable ring tone, I finally had to turn off the base station's ringer altogether.
No backlit keys. No "message waiting" flashing light on the phone like my old model had. So you can't tell from a distance if you have any messages waiting. I miss this feature from my old set.
