I want MORE information!!

BJTok, Staples
14 January 2014
  • Excerpt: The phone system works great - I think. I still haven't figured out how to retrieve my calls from the corded base set. There are no instructions for this in my instrction manual. I do like being able to retrive my calls from any of the cordless handsets. THAT can be VERY convenient. I like them more the longer I have them. If I had been asked to rate them in that first frustrating week I'd have given them one star because you can't rate a thing with less.
  • Pros: Clear Reception
  • Cons: Complicated Controls

Phones work great

djfinct, Staples
26 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I wanted a corded phone with 4 cordless phones, this one matched my want list perfectly. My only disappointment is that when I answer the phone in the dark and need to access the keypad to enter information, I can;t read the numerals as the keypad does not light up. To me this is a major downfall, as I get early AM phone calls that I need to see the keypad. I now need to turn on a light to read the numbers. I wish there was a way to alter that.
  • Pros: Clear Reception, Durable, Easy Controls
  • Cons: Keypad Does Not Light Up

Very good phones

Billy Goat, Staples
8 December 2013
  • Excerpt: No setup required for the handsets. Put the battery in and you are done. The caller ID service put the date and time in every handset for me automatically. To answer a call you press "phone". To end a call, you hang up. The default settings on ring and voice volume are fine. For the base station, to answer a call, you pick it up. To end a call, you hang up. I am not using the answer machine, so I had to enter "answer off".
  • Pros: Clear Reception, Easy setup

Terrible - lasted only 5 months!

DK, Staples
20 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Phone worked fine for 5 months & then suddenly died on us. You can't hear a word anyone says and cannot dial out. All I hear is static. It is not our phone line as other phones work fine. I would not buy this product again!
  • Cons: Not Durable, Poor Reception

OK but hard to program

Super Sue, Staples
6 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I like the phone but to program the answering machine is a real pain, it doesn't want to stay where you set it and skips and is confusing, also there is no alert or alarm to tell you that there is a message you have to look at the phone and I hate that if I knew that I would have not bought the phone.
  • Pros: Clear Reception, Durable
  • Cons: Hard To Program Noalarm, No Alarm Sound

Quality Control Issue?

Phone Buyer from Maine, Staples
25 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The base unit of this phone failed completely after 2 days of use. None of the troubleshooting, etc., methods could be used to restore it. The Motorola website was unhelpful-it provided only the same instruction manual provided with the phone. This phone set will be returned.
  • Cons: Failed After 2 Days

NO Headset Jack

cc, Staples
6 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I decided on this phone specifically for the headset jack feature. When I received the phone there was no headset jack it is listed as a feature on the description. Not impressed by the overall look or feel of the phone itself,in general. It works but that's about it.
