Accessory handset only - requires Vtech i5853/57 or i5866/67 to operate
The i5807 is an accessory handset for use with VTech expandable phone system models i5853, i5857, i5866, and i5867. It utilizes the 5.8 GHz frequency and digital spread spectrum technology to provide clear, accurate reception with less interference than traditional 2.4 GHz and 900 MHz phones.
Caller ID/call waiting compatible, the i5807 has a 50-number caller ID memory as well as a 50-name-and-number phone directory to help you keep track of important contacts. You can select among eight ring tones and 12 musical ringers, while the supplied audio patch cord allows you to record custom ring tones (up to 10 seconds each).
The full-color handset LCD screen comes with a variety of preset images that you can assign to phone directory entries or set as background wall-paper; the included USB cable and image editor software also allow you to download custom images.
An intercom feature lets you communicate with other handsets on the same system, and a handset-to-handset call transfer feature lets you route incoming calls to another handset location. The redial function dials any of the last ten outgoing calls. With any-key answer, you can just press any button on the phone to answer a call.
The NiMH battery has an eight-hour talk time, with a standby battery life of up to five days. Handset speakerphone and headset compatibility also provide convenient methods of hands-free communication. The i5807 comes backed with a one-year warranty.

HOWEVER, the phone usage is a bit annoying. For instance, to delete calls from the caller ID list (CID on the phone) is easy to do, but the sound of the tone, while deleting or using the menu options of the phone, is loud and obnoxious. Nor can this tone be muted or changed.
Also, a good feature is being able to enter and edit the number before dialing, like a cell phone; but the response of the keys is very poor and inconsistent. My wife often yells out loud in frustration as the keys fail to respond to her touch.
Another issue is personal pictures can be put in the phone per address book entry, but no more than one phone number per entry. Moreover, the address book allows you to enter in the same exact numbers and titles multiple times, which makes the list grow to a very cumbersome amount, if you forget which entries exist in a phone and continue to add numbers.
Furthermore, the phones can be used as intercoms amongst themselves, which is a great feature to avoid yelling down three flights of stairs. However, the phones do not sync info between themselves, so you must maintain as many address books as you have phones (I have three).
Lastly, the batteries have held up well (NiCad recharge) but every now and again following a low battery message, I have to remove the batteries from the phone for a few minutes, re-insert them and place the phone back on a charger in order to use the phone.
Overall, it is a neat features phone, but the execution of those features lack a little bit.
The range of these is pretty good... I can wander around my 1/2 acre and still get great reception to the base unit.
The ability to upload pictures or make your own ring tones is pretty cool. It took me a year or two to actually do that since the stock images and rings were suitable, but it's fun to try things out.
Also it's nice that the batteries in the unit aren't some custom battery back...just plain old NiMH, so if they ever get to the point where they don't hold a charge, you can get spares just about anywhere they have batteries (or even some alkaline AA's in a pinch, just don't try charging it if you do that...emergency only) :)
The kids like adding our own photos and recording songs for the ringer! Never have trouble with reception, or battery life (even when I leave it on the front porch all night!) I do notice that you have to wait a second after pressing "on" to dial...I still mess this up after 2 years! But that is my fault, not the product's. I am now buying more handsets (since they take up so little room!)
The phone works as advertised. My only complaint is that there is no way to synchronize the phonelist programmed into each of the handsets. It's all a manual process.
The overall voice quality is fine and the system is easy enough to use.
