Excerpt: Basic 4 line telephone for small office use. No call waiting. Make sure your read the installation info before you have someone come to wire, or you may end up having to call them back to re-wire. Each separate telephone requires two separate jacks: one jack for lines 1 & 2 and one jack for lines 3 & 4. HINT: if you place a call on hold and someone picks up the line on a different phone, your phone will beep (annoyingly) every few seconds.
Excerpt: I have three 1070 ATT phones. None of them will work hands free. You can hear the callers clearly but cannot talk hands free because the microphone will not work clearly. It breaks up the words and your hearers cannot understand you. Sometimes the microphone does not work at all. It is a very poor design.
Pros: Attractive Design, Comfortable Handset, Good Sound Quality, Hands free speaker good, Nice Features
Cons: Callers cannot hear you, Microphone poor quality, Not Durable
Excerpt: The 1040 model description showed that it had "caller ID" when in fact it doesn't have caller ID. Customer service exchanged it without a problem. The 1070 has caller ID. The 1080 has everything that the 1070 does, but it also has a built-in answering system.
Excerpt: I am unsatisfied with the lack of details on the business phones. For instance, on the AT&T 1080 4-Line Corded Phone System, may I set outgoing messages for each of the four lines? May I set a general outgoing message as well?
Excerpt: The phone is all nice and pretty, but I was shocked that despite the screen shown (similar to the old phone we are replacing), there is no caller ID on this phone. Who makes an office phone without caller ID these days? Now we have to return it. Grrrrrrr.
