Summary: This is a very simple, user friendly machine. The only reason I need a new one is that a lightning strike took out all the phones in my home. It is easy to program and is small enough to fit my limited space. I highly recommend this machine.
Summary: When I first got this AT&T answer machine it was in Spanish. Finally figured out what they were saying and was able to modify it to our needs. Easy to set up. Voice messaging and incoming messages are very clear. Recommend this one highly, as we have had problems with voice levels and clarity with other machines. Great for the price.

Summary: For the price of this system, you cannot complain unless you are a clueless person who has no ideas how expensive it is to design such a device. The ONLY concern I have is the AT&T 1739 Corded Digital Answering System is too light and very easy to knock of the table or desk. I STRONGLY you devise a method to add some weight to the bottom. That is the only concern I have though. For $20, you cannot expect a better list of features. FIVE STARS.
