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 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.
