Summary: The phones are just OK, not great. The backlighting is useless. The keys are lighted around the perimeter but you cannot see the numbers in the dark. In a dark room, you can just barely make out what the numbers are, but you cannot tell what any of the other key functions do. You have to memorize the keypad configuration. This aspect was a real disappointment! The reception is decent but a bit marginal at times for the price of these phones.
Summary: This website misleads you. The combination with the wireless headset shown above does not work. The headset is not compatable with the model phone. We bought the combo based on the "recently bought together" promo above, only to find out we paid for a product that will not work with the phone. More shocking, it says it clerly right on the box....someone at Amazon is not reading their own products. So, we paid shipping and then had to pay more shipping to send it back.
Summary: While this Dect 6.0 phone has some nice features such as Goog-411 and can be wall mounted and has minimal space requirements, for a Dect 6.0 phone it's quietness during phone conversations was lacking, especially on the other end. It also lacked adequate coverage for the auxiliary phones from the base station compared to a Panasonic Dect 6.0 phone system I had owned previously. Finally went with a 5.8 ghz AT&T system for superior call quality.
Summary: The phone is great. The design and look is perfect for my home. The DND (Do Not Disturb) function is excellent. One star removed because I am disappointed that the price dropped after my purchase.

Summary: Around the 2 year mark we always end up tossing our cordless multiple handset systems because of battery life... add 3 young kids that throw them in the sink, splash them with water and drop them repeatedly; you get my drift. The displays started to go out, but most importantly like all systems the battery life diminishes after the first year and at a point becomes unbearable.
Summary: We really like this phone. It has great clarity and superb features. Superior over the other GE phone we bought over 3 years ago. Now we can finally talk on the handset in the basement without any static. Primary reason for buying them is the DND (Do Not Disturb) function. Not many phones have that feature. Had them on the older set and it was an absolute must for us. Also the GOOG 411 toll free directory assistance one touch dialing is awesome!
Summary: The phone works well without interference except for the fact that the battery drains immediately. Thomson Inc. who makes the phone and the battery does not cover the battery under its warranty even if the phone is new. Bad phone and bad warranty.
Summary: This GE Cordless Phone seemed just what I wanted. I checked the look and feel at a couple stores vs other phones. The specs sounded just right and though I only needed 2 handsets, the one with 3 from Outlet on Amazon seemed to be a great deal and gave me an extra handset and cradle for a spare. The 2 poor reviews gave me great concern, but I finally decided to buy it. I am glad I did. The phone is great, and everything it was advertised to be.
Summary: PURCHASED THE GE CORDLESS PHONES..THEY SEEM TO WORK OK..BUT WHEN YOU ADDED YOUR CALL DIRECTORY YOU HAD TO ENTER EACH PHONE SEPERTLY...WHEN DIELING CALL DID NOT GO THOUGH AND YOU HAD TO REDIAL AGAIN...SOUND WAS GOOD AND BASICLLY EVERYTHING ELSE WAS OK...
Summary: These phones are awful. The reception on them is horrible. Lots and lots of static. I thought maybe it was my 2 level house. I gave the phones away after callers mentioned how they would hear alot of static while we were speaking to them on the phone. We could hear the static ourselves during phone conversations. Although the features are great I had to get rid of them. I sold them to a friend for cheap and wound of purchasing the Panasonic Dect 6.0.
