Excerpt: I really liked the look of the phone and all the features. However, I was very disappointed to discover that it required batteries to operate the caller ID. We are very conscientious about the environment and try to use things that do not require batteries.
Summary: I got this phone for my mom she is 81 and wears hearing aids she loves it and said it is a lot better than the phone she had before that cost twice as much. I ordered it on line and it arrived sooner than Wal-Mart said it would
Summary: I bought this phone to replace an AT&T CL2909 of which the displayed failed (the second one) The only feature it lacks is " line in use" which my previous phones had. Otherwise it is satisfactory.
Summary: The only problem I found with this phone is the CID display doesn't light up. You can't see who is calling without turning on the light & in my case, putting on my glasses. (this is an inconvenience if you are in bed at night. I like the ringing options & the big buttons.
Summary: It was not advertised as a battery-powered phone, but it basically is. And that is why the caller ID display is not backlit and is very difficult for anyone to read. Otherwise, the phone does everything it is advertised to do at a fair price. With a backlit display, this would be a killer phone.
