Excerpt: I have always loved AT&T phones which is why I automatically ordered this phone. I like every thing about it, except it will not complete a call to any number containing a "4". I have had a total of 4 of these ML17939 phones trying to find one that will work, to no avail. Works on pulse dial but not tone dial.
Pros: Attractive Design, Comfortable Handset, Durable, Good Sound Quality
Summary: Did not need a 2 line phone but wanted a corded phone that would work with a headset, at my computer. Unfortunately the Panasonic KX TCA60 Hands Free Headset I orered did not work and I had to return it. Have been using my old corded headset until I can find a replacement.
Summary: Great phone because it has an answering machine, headset jack and 2 line option. Speaker phone works well as does the answering system. Only real downside is that the buttons are a little stiff and this could be problematic if u make a lot of outbound calls. Hopefully the get easier with use.
Summary: As you know there aren't many 1-2 line non-VoIP desktop phone sets left in the world, so with such limited choices this one may still be the best. The "clear talk" speaker isn't all that clear and the mic pickup tends to clip off your first word. Right off you will note the annoying lag when dialing in that the touch-tones follow just after input almost like an old pulse dialer.
