Summary: I already have one of these phones and bought this one to give me an additional handset. Having the Answerphone, is also useful in case the main phone breaks down. It works perfectly, though it did take me a while to sort out how to register it to the base in the office! Just needed to put it onto the actual base for it to recognise the handset.
Summary: Please do not waste your money on this phone - after using it for 3 months, I could bear it no longer and chucked it in for a different brand and model. The sound quality is appalling - for both the answer phone and in-coming calls (a great surprise to me as Panasonic is my brand of choice for TVs and radios). Trying to text was as tedious as I have ever found a phone to be. It's set to default to upper case, so you have to keep changing it.
Summary: This phone does what a phone should, great battery, clear display, handset keys good etc, BUT unfortunately it is limited. It is complex to use the features, the speaker is not good, the ringtones are few and poor. We bought the phone because we need to text on our landline but the text feature is like an abacus when compared to our old (but unreliable) BT handset. The are hard to write, there is no list of texts received or sent.
Summary: I ordered these as these were the only phones which support hands free. But when I connect it to handsfree, the voice quality is so poor that you cant listen anything whatsoever. The volume of these phone is also so low, that you almost always have to use the speaker phone, and then the speaker phone is too loud to hold it near your ear. Absolutely useless device. Avoid.
Summary: Having reviewed most of the cordless phones on the market I decided to buy this Panasonic twin set due to the awards it has won. I was certainly not disappointed. The sound quality is excellent. Good clean lines and easy to navigate. I would have awarded it five stars had it not been for one very slight problem. I work nights and needed a phone that I can turn off during the day. (This phone does have a night setting - but that is pointless for me!

Summary: Before making this purchase I looked at a lot of alternatives and a lot of reviews and based my decision on all the information available. I can say without doubt I made the right decision, these phones came at a good price are stylish but sturdy, easy to set up and use, just read the well written and easy to follow instructions that come in the box, and I am more than pleased with them.
Summary: We were happy for years with our REALLY old fashioned plug-in telephone after having tried various handsets and cordless units which all broke down or crackled or buzzed after a short time. However, we needed a bit of flexibility so that we could take calls in a different room and quick-dial numbers from a built-in phone book. I know, how quaint, but now we're solidly in the twenty first century, the time has come to fully embrace the twentieth!
Summary: Got this item at a bargain price, easy to use, however, when you are receiving calls, it only rings a number of times ,pending how you set it, as there is no continuious ring. al sales calls can be blocked giving you peace of mind when you have caller i.d. stylish phone, if you are in the market for a new phone get this you won't be disappointed. i paid less than £60.
