Summary: IT DOES A FINE JOB CLEAR INCOMING CALLS AND OUT GOING ONES. I ALSO USE THE REPEATER BY PANASONIC ITS PLACED IN THE ROOM FURTHEREST FROM THE BASE. IT GIVES EVEN MORE DISTANCE. THE BACK LITE CAN BE LEFT ON OR TURNED OFF. I KEEP MINE TURNED OFF, AND IT WILL LITE UP ON AN INCOMING CALL.
Excerpt: We wanted a cordless phone that would allow us to use our existing land line as well as pair our cell phones and this one works perfectly for this. As a bonus, it allows you to block unwanted sales calls and this is a feature that we have found to be a blessing for those very annoying sales calls.
