Excerpt: I almost bought another model with multiple handsets when i saw this new system. It is about 50% more expensive than what I was looking at, but looks much better. Although it offers connectivity to cell phones, it uses the same old Panasonic software, which works but is painfully slow and requires too many steps to do simple things like erasing missed calls.
Summary: My last phone was a Panasonic multi handset system that was very similar. But what started happening is the batteries were failing, and the kids would never put the handsets back on their charging base. My wife and I were using our cell phones much more than our landline anyway. This at least partially solved the problem. We've gone from 4 handsets to 1 physical handset - with 2 virtual handsets on our smartphones.
Pros: Always have a handset in my pocket. Attractive design. Can transfer contacts from iOS or Android phones.
