Summary: I bought this phone because I am little obsessed with EMR's, and so wireless telephone are not for me. I am disappointed that I must use batteries to utilize the caller ID function. Also, I feel like I have to push hard on the keypad to dial a number.
Summary: Both my 97 year old mother, and my husband have very poor hearing. They both find using portable phones very unsatisfactory. So, my husband can hear better on this phone, and my mother finds my voice much clearer when I call her.
