Summary: My son bought this for me because I have some hearing loss and if my cell phone wasn't in the same room as me I would not hear it ring. With this phone I have one in each room so I don't miss calls now. they work off of yor cell phone so you don't need an extra landline phone to pay for and you can use either the house phone or cell phone without having to switch anything back and forth.
Summary: So far I am very satisfied with the phone. I have it linked via Bluetooth to both of my iPhones. There is a little programming involved so just follow the instructions. The phones connected flawlessly and even copied my contacts from the iPhone to the Panasonic which was very impressive. I have only had the phones for less than a week but all my Panasonic phones in the past have all stood the test of time for reliability.
Summary: I really like this phone and answering machine. It is so easy to use. The only reason I did not rate it with five stars is because I thought I would be able to use the link to cell since my phone is Bluetooth capable. I have since found out that you must have a smartphone to link this to your cell phone. There is nothing written saying that it must be a smartphone but when I called the helpline, that is what the customer service representative told me.
Summary: The larger buttons are very helpful. The handset itself is larger than the panasonic phone I bought a few years ago and do not use. You have to use the manual for reference to menu shortcuts to change settings as simple as ringer volume, push #*6281 to change it !! Odd for me, maybe not for you. (The cordless phone I was using I bought in the 1980's.) Overall a great phone. Will try the link-to-cell feature soon. Wish it had more different ring tones to choose from.
Summary: The phone is similar to the black model I had, except it is a little shorter. The negatives are that is does not have a white screen when you use it, but the yellow and there is no speaker phone on base. That is why I gave it 4 stars. I mainly bought and kept it for the silver color. Also, I did not need all 3 phones.
