Excerpt: This phone has all of the features I was looking for.I would have liked more than 3 speed dials and the volume could go a little higher. But you can always switch to speaker phone if you need it louder. I live 200 ft. From the road and I walked all the way out to my mailbox and the phone didn't cut out! My previous panasonic would make it almost to the road. I also walked all of the way around my house and never lost signal. The screen is easy to read as is the key pad.
Pros: can turn ringer & call screening off on handsets, Convenient, Durable, easy to use, Exceeded expectations, Inexpensive, speaker phone with belt clips hooks easy on shirt
Cons: could have more speed dial memory, Volume could be louder
Summary: Had to keep re-reading the instructions on how to set up base unit in order to install it on the wall. Could not push the buttons on back of base hard enough for it to open allowing access to back of unit. I finally applied pressure with a screw driver in the area where it said push and was able to open it up. Once I had the base mounted and the phone programed, I was pleased the results. Our old phone was 12 years old and had a lot of static.
Summary: Easy to use, easy to completely personalize, AND you can block numbers! We are on the no call list, and have been for several years. However, there are always a few who seem to slip through the net for some reason. This phone took care of a few for us already. Great feature! I would definitely recommend this phone to anyone, and in fact already have. One tip, though.
