Ideal for home and small-office use, the CT14 DECT 6.0 cordless headset phone offers enhanced sound quality and DECT 6.0 wireless technology for an interference-free wireless range of up to 300 feet. The CT14 relies on the DECT 6.0 frequency (1.9 GHz) for all communications, giving you a roaming range of up to 300 feet and significantly better reception when compared to standard 2.4 or 5.8 GHz cordless phone systems. The DECT 6.0 frequency is used exclusively for voice communication applications, which means that wireless networks or home appliances such as microwaves will not interfere with your calls. With the enhanced range and clarity that DECT 6.0 offers, the CT14 gives you the freedom to move about your house or office without compromising on call quality. Thanks to its flexible mouthpiece, which lets you position it precisely where you need, the CT14 will give you the professional-class sound quality you require. And its noise-canceling microphone transmits your voice clearly without the background noise that a busy home or small office can produce. The CT14 features a 2-in-1 convertible style headset that gives you the option of wearing it either over-the-head or over-the-ear. You may want the comfort and stability for long calls or conferencing that the over-the-head style offers, and when it's time to switch, simply disconnect the headband, attach the ear loop, and wear the headset over your ear. Either way, you get a comfortable fit that is designed for all-day use.

Pros: Headset works great. People tell me I sound great on calls - just as though I were holding a handset. Headset is also very comfortable and fits two ways depending on preference - ear-only ("Bluetooth" style) and headband-style, for those of us less secure using only an earpiece! I have walked all over my house and the headset has not lost connectivity with the base - no buzzing, humming, etc. - works exactly as I had hoped. The phone itself clips to my belt and is small/light enough to clip to a lapel as well (although it does drag it down).
Cons: Because the phone itself is so small, the buttons are tiny and require definite pressure to press! That's actually good, though, because when the phone is clipped to your belt you don't want buttons accidentally being pressed and making noise on the call (or ending it!) - very little chance of that happening. If you've hit a certain age, you will definitely need your glasses to dial a number, etc. because the writing on the small buttons is smaller still, but for me this hasn't been a problem - just something to be aware of.

1. Reading your manual all the way through. This phone does a lot of cool things that you have to read the manual to figure out.
Also, just to understand basic functions, i.e., ringer volume: press the up key to increase or press down to decrease or turn off, etc.. (If you are on a call, the up down key raises or lowers the volume of the person you are talking to.)
2. If your phone doesn't do 3 way calling or call waiting i.d., that is probably not a problem with the phone. You need to call your phone service carrier to make sure those functions are enabled.
3. If people can't hear you or you sound muffled to yourself or others, you probably need a new headset. These headsets are made to wear out quickly. I was using Panasonic KX-TCA60 Hands-Free Headset with Comfort Fit Headband for Use with Cordless Phones, but the price has almost tripled recently so I am looking for alternatives. If anyone finds one, please let me know. (This phone takes a 2.5 mm jack, but I have an adapter. If anyone has had luck with a 3.5 mm headset and an adapter, please let me know.)
4. The handset and keys are small. I am a woman with medium? ;-) sized hands and still need to use the corner of my (short) thumbnail to press number keys with no problem.
I hope this helps. When I upgraded from the CT12, I didn't bother to read the manual for a LOOONG time because I assumed I already knew how to work it. When I finally did, I was thrilled at all the new features. (Also, if you had issues with the CT12 interfering with WiFi, the CT14 does not cause that issue.)
Hope this helps with most of the problems.
My problem is I upgraded from the old style landline to U-verse and everything works fine except the message light indicator does not go off by itself after I listen to my messages. I accidentally found out that if I re-dial voice mail and then hang up, the light goes out. I have trouble shot with ATT and tried a lot of different things myself, including what should work: * or ** to dis-engage, but the light stays on unless I call back and hang up. If anyone has a solution for this please let me know. Thanks. (I am thinking at this point that it will have something to do with how to disengage the call to voicemail.)
P.S. One of my favorite features of this phone is that you can store up to 70 names and numbers in the phone book and you can assign a special ring to some OR, best of all, assign "NO RING" to some! That can be a real blessing ;-)
Update: 7-8-2018 The Voicemail indicator light situation w/ U-verse sort of resolved itself. I don't have to call back and hang up, I just hang up after listening to messages without pressing * or ** like it used to be and light will go out.
