Summary: 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?
Summary: The phones look and work great. We are using 6 phones with two incoming lines. All the employees like the style and the sound of the phones. The angle of the display screen makes it hard to read so we added phone stands. The programmable settings are easy to use and it was up to each employee to decided if they wanted to program phone numbers or extensions. There is an additional directory on the phone to program numbers and to save from the caller ID.
Pros: Easy to use, excellent sound, several features
Cons: Angle of display screen makes it hard to read
Summary: We have had a stand-alone pc-based answering system for the last 7 years, but when the hard-drive recently crashed we did not want to invest in a new cpu until we were ready to upgrade the whole phone system. We have 6 lines coming into our office, but we really only need 2 or 3 answered after hours since we rarely have more than a couple callers after hours and almost never more than one at a time.
Pros: Easy to set up
Cons: 'While basic use is easy, advanced features are hard to understand via manual.
Summary: The buttons on the speed dial are too easy to press. I unintentionally hit the 911 button twice in setting up the speed dia directory l, and the police came each time. The speed dial directory does not absorb ink, so the names are faint. Display window is lit all the time and is annoying at night on my night able. I would prefer that the widow light up only for a few seconds when call comes in. Incoming call number does not stay on long enough.
Summary: I was looking forward to receiving my new phone. But when I received it and hooked it up the handset would not work. I tried a different handset on the phone and it worked great. The only problem was the switched handset would not work out because it would not sit in the cradle properly since it was not the right size for the phone.
Pros: Haven't used it since the handset was not functioning
Cons: Received a used non functional scratched up handset
Summary: We purchased 3 1080's as we were moving to auto attendant mode. We wanted to get voice mail boxes for 3 individuals. We're very happy to have our own voice mail and it's pretty easy to use. The number of rings when using the message/voice mail system is a little long. We've only been using them for a few weeks. Hopefully, they will continue to get an excellent rating from all of us.
Pros: It works well with our new auto attendant system.
Cons: When the lines are busy apparently you can't do any other functions. The time delay for leaving mail boxes is long.
