Summary: This is a good product. The reason for my rating is the base of the phone has no weight and it often falls off the table or wherever you have it sitting. It's a good take on the old Trimline Phone, but it just isn't what it could be. Where's the weight? For the price, what does one expect?
Summary: Old phone got static. I got another brand for a replacement at Walmart for 10 dollars with a tiny keypad and no light. I finally checked around and found that AT&T still made the old style phone, maybe a little shoddier than the older one but the warranty is for two years, compared to probably ninety days for my first attempt at a replacement--also for ten dollars. Too bad I didn't discover that Walmart sold it, by Ship to Store, before I'd bought the other replacement.
Summary: The phone was defective and when I called to return it,was told I could return it at the store, the mgr @ the store told me it could not be returned @ the store altho customer service would walk them thru the procedure. The mgr said she was to busy to do it at that time. I took the phone returned home and called customer service AGAIN. They were very accommodating and issued a credit immediately for my trouble.
Summary: Works as advertised. My only issue is that the light on the number pad is very dim, to the point where it is almost useless. You can barely see the numbers in a dark room when you are trying to dial. Luckily, as long as you've used a phone with a number pad before, you know where the numbers are anyway. A good basic phone for the price.
Summary: We've had more expensive phones, including cordless; the signal to static ratio is horrible, last one the dial tone or the calling party would take seconds to come on, weak ring volume, etc., etc, etc. With these there are no fancy features but the audio is great, no static, immediate dial tone, etc. We junked three others and replaced them all.
Summary: I was looking for a phone like I had growing up, the phone you got from the Phone company. Those phones were strong and very well built. Although this phone looks a lot like it. The ringer is not as loud as those phones. And the phone isn't as heavy duty as the older phones. It is a good phone and works very well. i am satisfied with it.
