Summary: I am reviewing this phone because I hav owned it for the past 3-4 years. I needed a cordless phone in a computer room on one end of our 4000 sq. ft CBS (concrete, block and steel) home. Needless to say I needed one with a decent range. I had already been to the stores and had purchased a GE, VTech, AT&T, and Uniden, all in about the same price range, and they were crap in the reception department.
Summary: I bought this phone for my mom when her VTech died. She likes a phone that has balance. This phone is well balanced and has user friendly features. She didn't need the answering part and we were able to shut it off. After a couple days I called her to see how it was working. She absolutely loves it. She said she hasn't noticed any of the noise problems I had told her other people wrote about.
Summary: I have already had a phone exactly like this for several years, and I love it. So I bought two more of these to have in other rooms in my home. I am very pleased with their quality and performance.
Summary: I bought this phone with our wedding money. We now have two kids: age 2 and 3, and it has lasted these 4.5 years as our only phone (we don't even have cells) with all the abuse from our kids. Its only been these past couple weeks its finally given us sticky numbers so we must retire it and purchase something new.
Summary: Hi I have recently bought my second 2.4 ghz motorola phone. The reason I want to gift it back home. I have used the first one for almost 1 year now. The quality is good. my kids have thrown it arround and it is still working great. Looks definately appealing. The rubber covering at the side really makes the handling easy and comfortable. The only limitation I can think off is the size of the handset.
Summary: This is our second Motorola cordless phone. We needed a second one and since the 1st one has given us such good service it was a no brainer to choose it again. The signal is always clear, it has a long battery life and is very durable and forgiving of lifes little accidents. The new handset design fits in your hand better and is more comfortable to use. The answering machine is ever ready and has never failed to capture a call. Also playback is crisp and clear.
Summary: I bought this phone about a year ago as it was the right price for what I wanted. The sound has never been good (lots of static) and has got worse over the year. It is now totally broken, I cannot dial out and there is no ring when calling in. Very dissapointing, I thought Motorola would be a safe bet, but I won't be buying this brand again.
Summary: In the almost three years of having owned this phone it's only been solid 2 months. The answering machine function is reliable - hence the two stars. Motorola did send a (free) replacement battery which lasted as long as the first: 6 months. You'll get 30 seconds of use from your phone for every 30 minutes it's charged. (So make sure your phone calls are short so it doesn't cut you off) Look elsewhere.
Summary: This baby has come down in price and is easy to find sales on. The phone works well. I have yet to get a message to test the answering machine as I just got it on June 22nd. Set up was easy enough. The booklet was rather easy to follow. My one complaint with it is that the display text is very small. Other than that, no complaints.
