Panasonic KX-TGH263B Link2Cell Bluetooth Enabled Phone with Answering Machine & 3 Handsets
Key features include; Link up to 2 Cell Phones, Talking Text Sender Alert, Advanced TAD Functions, Enhanced Noise Reduction, Key Detector Compatible, Power Back-Up Operation, DECT 6.0 PLUS Technology, Talking Caller ID, Large, 1.8 inch White Backlit Handset Display, Intelligent Eco Mode, and Silent Mode.
Link up to 2 Cell Phones
Feature that lets you sync your cell or smart phone to your Panasonic home phone handset. Cell phone calls can then be made or received using your Panasonic handset.
Talking Text Sender Alert
When a call comes in through your linked cell or Smartphone (Link2Cell), the handset will announce the name or phone number of the sender using the text-to-speech function.
Advanced TAD Functions
Panasonic keeps you in touch with Advanced Answering Device Functions on select models. Now you can be alerted to recorded messages whether you're at home or on the road. When a caller records a message, the base unit will beep alerting those in the house. Not at home? The phone will automatically send a message to a registered cell or office phone along with playback options.
Enhanced Noise Reduction
The Enhanced Noise Reduction feature available on select 2014 models lets you suppress background noise around the caller while simultaneously enhancing their voice making it easier to hear them. So a parent getting a call from their teenager at a concert can hear what time to pick them up or when a friend calls from a noisy ballgame, you can hear where to meet afterwards.
Key Detector Compatible
Attach the optional Key Detector to your car key ring or other easily misplaced items and forget about ever losing them ever again. Using any of your telephone handsets, you can activate the Key Detector's beeping alarm and quickly track down your lost keys. Key Detector's powerful range finds objects up to 200 yards away so you'll find whatever's lost whether it's upstairs, in your car or in the yard. You can register up to four Key Detectors and give each a distinctive name, like Dave's keys, Sharon's keys, etc.
Power Back-Up Operation
A powerful battery back-up system keeps you connected when the power goes out. Keep a charged handset in the base unit and you can still make and receive calls with the other cordless handsets.
DECT 6.0 PLUS Technology
Enhanced version of DECT 6.0 in which transmission quality and range are improved by increasing the frequency of error correction up to 80x.
Talking Caller ID
Now you can hear who's calling from across the room without having to get up. Using text-to-speech technology, Panasonic phones featuring Talking Caller ID announce caller ID information in between rings. What could be more convenient?
Intelligent Eco Mode
This feature automatically lowers the power consumption when you're using the handset close to the base unit. Not only does it extend the available talk time, it's good for the environment. When less power is used by the handset to communicate with the base unit, battery life is prolonged which results in less frequent charging and can result in fewer batteries in landfills.
Allows the user to program individual handsets to ring or remain silent for specified time periods without affecting other handsets.

Update on 12/16/2014: I just updated to an iPhone 6 two weeks ago with iOS 8 and everything continues to work like it did with the iPhone 5.
These three replaced two old phones from Panasonic at a lower price than the two I bought 8 years ago!
- After the initial pairing, they automatically pair with my iPhone5 as soon as I walk into the house. You can pair up to two phones. I spend 6 months away from the house and I have both a cellphone and a landline. The pairing with the cellphone is an outstanding feature and a must have for me. Now I can walk into the house and have the phones pair automatically, put the cellphone on charge and still receive cellphone calls from any of the three phones.
- I can receive calls on both the land line and through the iPhone5 using the Panasonic phones. You can also dial out using either line, the land line or the iPhone5's line.
- You can chose to use either your landline's answering service or the one internal to the Panasonic phone. The phone will flash in either case to alert you to a message with a note on the display (a chime can also be added). Also, a light will blink when a message has been received and then can be heard with the push of one key. The message can be heard at any one of the three phones, not just at the base station.
- Speed dialing of 9 numbers is available (just press and hold one of the 9 numbers)
- The phone is useable throughout our two story house, it has good range.
- Good clarity and a loud speakerphone volume.
- The color screen is easy to read and the phone has an illuminated dial, handy in a dark room.My old set had black and white LCDs and were not easy to see.
- The three phones can operate in just Bluetooth mode connecting to your cellphone, a landline is not necessary. They then operate as extra access points in the house for your cellphone which you can leave on a charger while in the house.
- You can activate an option to block all calls from people that block their Caller ID (or show unknown ID) or just to individual IDs or a range of Caller ID numbers (e.g., whole area codes). A good way to get away from those pesky dinnertime salesmen calls.
- The base station is powered by its phone during a power outage so the system is still live when the power goes out.
- The button layout is very functional. The keys are flat but respond to a press, not touch sensitive like the iPhone screen. I can hold the phone in my right hand and dial numbers with my thumb feeling the detent of each number, a one handed operation. The four way rocker button at the top is big enough for operation by a thumb.
- You can transfer addresses from your iPhone5 to the Panasonic phones and the addresses will appear on all three phones. However, the "Trunk Line" option of adding a "1" in front of each number transferred does not work. Since the iPhone stores numbers without a leading "1", the transferred numbers will not work unless a "1" is manually added to each number. I've formally reported this bug to Panasonic.
- It's all or nothing in the transferring of numbers from the iPhone using the Panasonic phone to initiate the transfer. With over 300 phone numbers in the iPhone, that quickly becomes unwieldy. However, before doing the transfer, you can access the iPhone Bluetooth connection screen to Panasonic to limit what is transferred (e.g., just Favorites), to workaround the Panasonic's all or nothing approach. You have to manually edit each contact to add the leading "1" but at least the edit will appear on all three phones.
- Although all transferred phone numbers will appear on all phones, the speed dial numbers have to be entered individually on each of the three phones, they do not automatically transfer to all phones when entered on one phone.
For this setup, it was linked to Bluetooth only, no land line, so I had to dig around the settings to turn off the regular land line port. Again, easy to do and I did test it over and over to make sure it connects to the cell phone.... and it does so with ease. Pairing was also straight forward and making and receiving calls were as well. It can also connect to two cell phones at once and a land line... so it is definitely a versatile unit.
It can (or should I say does) announce the number or name if you have saved it in the contacts of this system. For me, I can do without it. For my relative, it will help as he has trouble getting up and down out of a chair and if it is a telemarketer.... he can ignore it. If it is in the contacts.... then he knows whom is calling.
In the end, it is a good system. Yes I can pick on some things, but overall... clean and as long as it works reliably.... that is what matters.
I've been using it for a few weeks now. It's connected via cable modem.
Pros: love the talking caller ID. It does say the names if they're programmed into your phone, or if they come up automatically with some carriers. Otherwise, it just says the phone number. It has an auto talk option so you can pick up the handset from the base, ant automatically answers. You can screen calls or leave the answering machine silent. You can screen the calls right from the handset. There is a ringer selection that includes "musical" ring tones.
Cons: the messages are a pain to manage. On my old AT&T phone (which I otherwise loathed), I could listen to my messages and pres a key to skip, delete, save etc. not on this phone..well, not exactly. You have to press pause, and if you accidentally press the stop instead, you have to start all over from the first message--kind of a pain if you saved a bunch and you're on your 10th message. I suppose, if you're used to Panasonic phones, this isn't a major con. Another con is battery life. Previous phones would take years before the handset died if left off the charger for a day or two. I charged fully before using, as directed; but the handset batteries die within 48 hours or less if they're off the charger. I do not spend much time talking on the phone, so I expect it to last longer than that. I suspect the additional features: wallpaper, Bluetooth, etc might be the culprit. One last con, it doesn't do e with the key detector! I don't know if it's fair to list, as the description did not specifically state that it was part of the deal. It was slightly misleading. The price is pretty high. I think I paid more for the looks than the features.
Overall, it works well, it looks great, and I would recommend it if you want a stylish phone with Bluetooth, and talking caller ID, expansion capabilities. And, don't mind paying more for a prettier phone.
