Summary: I purchased this to replace an aging Panasonic two line system I purchased back in 2001. I work from home, so I have a need for a business line and a personal line, and I like not having to worry about extension placement in our two story home. I have now had it up and running for maybe a bit over a month. I bought this, the 7600 headset, and three extra handsets. I didn't think at first I would like/use the bluetooth option.
Summary: The AT&T Phone works well for range, clarity and basic feature set. I found it easy to set-up although there were too many quirks. I returned the unit as the the headset jack was non usable (too low volume for people to hear me and same headset works fine on my Panasonic and cell phone). The base station would display voicemail indicator when none were received, and there is no battery backup.
Summary: I've seen the reviews left by others. I've used this phone now for 8 days. I've got two lines on it and my iPhone4 via the bluetooth connection. The phone works pretty good, no real issues. However, there are some quirks to this phone, that are a bit bothersome - others have mentioned them as well. Not so good 1. Buttons, not as responsive as they should be. 2. LCD display is only active when a call comes through. Would have been nice to see the time and date on it. 3.
Summary: I'm not much for writing product reviews but I've been using it for about a month now and, in the case of this phone, I felt sort of obligated. I've been a work-at-home private consultant for many years and I've been through several phone system solutions. Just as some background, I've used all manner of corded and cordless headsets (Plantronics, Sennheiser, Blue Parrot, etc.
Summary: something about the way the buttons make the tone sound when you press them makes the phone company think you didn't dial enough numbers. I have to try dialing each phone call 5 or 6 times before it finally goes through. VERY annoying!!! DO NOT BUY THIS--unless you have an extra 20 minutes a day to spend redialing phone numbers.
Summary: Purchased specifically because the description indicates there's a headset jack in the base. There isn't--the description is wrong. The headset jack is in the wireless handset, not the base unit. I use the phone for long conference calls, sometimes as long as 2.5 hours, and need a headset that plugs into the base unit. I need both hands free to type and operate other equipment. I've had other wireless handsets whose batteries died because the call was too long.
Summary: I did not give this phone a 5 star for 4 reasons 1. No form of music on the other end when on "Hold", line seem to be dead. 2. Date and time does not display at all on neither panels. These features are usefull for offices. 3. Power adaptors are not auto voltage. The WWW. has given the world purchasing power from anywhere. 4. Too many presses to access intercom. Just a button would be less frustrating.
Summary: Works well, fairly easy to set up, and remarkably clear insofar as voice quality is concerned. It has one major drawback. If you put one in any bedroom, it's like having a lighthouse on site. That huge, centrally located blue light that tells you it's in the charger, in case you hadn't noticed, can't be turned off or taped over because of its location. Doesn't anybody in "engineering" ever take these things home to try them?
