Summary: We returned the phone after using it for only one day, due to the atrocious voice quality. Callers on the other end of the line could only be heard properly if the volume was turned all the way up, but at full volume you hear your own voice magnified. The range of the phone was also poor, on every channel. To top it off, our answering machine message sounded like we were speaking with our hands over our mouths while we recorded it. Not recommended.
Summary: Shouldn't things last longer? How long have we been making telephones? I was happy with my my Motorolla phone for the first year. I didn't use it a lot (my cell phone is my primary number) though used the Motorolla for local calls and to screen calls from mortgage broakers, etc. After about a year, the keypad started going out (intermittently), it's gotten so bad that I can no longer use it to dial out.
Summary: I gave this phone a 5 star rating after I first got it. 2 months later, it went hay-wire. It was almost like it was possessed, then died. This phone didn't last long enough to remove the plastic screen guards. Now, I give this phone 1 star, but even that's too high. That's dissapointing being a Motorola. I like their products. TRUST THESE REVIEWS THAT HAVE TIME UNDER THEIR BELT. They're nice & sweet out of the box, but after that, it's all downhill baby.....
NOT a Good Choice for Wall Mounting - Extremely Awkward Wall Mount

Summary: I hoped to use this phone to replace a corded wall phone in my kitchen. The picture displayed for this phone (with the small hooks holding the handset at the bottom) makes it appear as if wall mounting is this phone's "default" position. It isn't. To mount the phone on a wall, you need to first install a wedge-shaped attachment on the base of the phone.
Summary: The phone performs great. Solid construction, easy to use, cool looking. Can not beat the price. I was reluctant to buy it, reading one bad review, but took a risk and it paid off. This phone is the best value for your money out there. It has all the features you need, great reception and clearity. Hope it helps!
Summary: Only buy this phone if you want both your voice and the person you're talking to sound like robots (not the cool robot voices, the annoying grating ones). You can't turn up the volume too loud to make the voices clearer because the sound gets high pitched and hurts your ears. Also the ringer mysteriously stopped working after I moved to my new apartment. This phone sucks. I only bought it because I needed something with a built-in answering machine.
