Summary: I hoped this phone would work out, because there aren't many 2 line corded phones with an answering feature. This phone replaced a very old Panasonic KXTMC98B. I had no complaints about audio quality from the party on the other end of the line, and other parties would come in clearly to me, but for some reason, I would hear distortion in the receiver when I would speak, a slight annoyance The speakerphone works pretty well for a phone in this price range.
Pros: Large buttons, illuminated display, battery backup
Summary: We have purchased two of these phones. The second phone, purchased on November 17, 2010, seems to be ok. No problems, but, the first phone, purchased on November 5, 2010, continually looses the 'Speed Dial' numbers. I put them all back in and in a matter of minutes or hours or days, some will dissapear. Not always the same numbers, but several. I am beginning to think that this phone has a technical problem and should be replaced.
Pros: Sound Quality, Ease of use and general appearance.
Summary: Bought this phone for my mother. The phone displays the caller ID on Call Waiting but displays only "Incoming Call" for normal calls. I would have rated the phone very good if not for that. It took nearly three weeks to conclude that the phone was at fault. So it's now too late to return it. it seems that the only viable option is to simply junk the phone and replace it with another brand that's more reliable.
Summary: I just wish there was easier to understand owners manual when it comes to recording the incoming announcement for BOTH lines. very confusing, as it's mentions annc A and annc B and that's my only gripw. i want to ave separate announcements for both lines.
