Excerpt: We bought the extra handset as the original package came with one base and two satelites. That was a few years ago. I was concerned that the new, additional set would have compatability issues, but it doesn't. Works fine. On the other hand, way overpriced; costs almost as much as the original package of three handsets.
Excerpt: This phone is terrible. You can't walk very far away from the base while you are using it. I was literally sitting right next to the base and it dropped the call TWICE because it lost signal. Also, the handsets have had "New Voice Mail" on the screen for a while now and even though we have checked the voice mail multiple times, the writing won't go away. This is a huge problem because we can no longer see the time or anything else for that matter on the screen.
Summary: I've had the base unit for this phone for a few years and wanted an additional handset. I was thrilled to find it available (not discontinued) and bought 2. These phones have great features, are easy to use, and the sound is clear.
Summary: The re-chargable batterys on this phone lasted about 2 years of low use. The repacement batterys are almost the same cost as buying a new phone. Very wasteful. I have a previous model that is still working after 5 years of heavy useage. I will be unlikely to buy this brand again.
Cons: Did not meet expectations, Difficult to use, Poor quality
