A decent product

Summary: Difficult to install. Bluetooth functionality is clumsy but workable. Cell phone plug in capability is also hard to figure out. Not all of the phones we purchased worked. We had to get multiple replacements. Quality is descent but not great. Far inferior to other Polycom products..
Summary: We really like this product. My husband and I have many long conversations via telephone some business and some pleasure. Our regular phone's batteries were always running out. This solves that problem. The sound quality is great and we have had no complaints from call recipients not being able to hear us. Even when we had had to be some distance from the phone we have had no problem with conversation. It is also great to not have our phones going dead.
Summary: so i got this for a contruction site office. needed to be bluetooth for connectiong to different cell phones. that part is great but i still cant get the valkume out of it that i often need. it is pretty clear though and nobody on the other end has complained about the quality on their end. its does do some funny stuff some times when trying to patch in other calls. sometimes calls last number dialed without hitting redial.
Summary: I know I'm not the only one that works from home but needs to function as if I'm in the office - including: 1. landline voice calls 2. A lot of skype 3. people calling my cell - when I need to be hands free When I take a call, I normally have to take a lot of notes - doing so on a cell phone speaker is a nightmare. I also use skype 50% of the time, and of course, need a great speakerphone with polycom quality. You can count on this phone to do these things.
Summary: My cell line is currently my primary business phone line. I dislike holding a cell phone to my head for any length of time. I find the quality of Apple's iPhone earbuds for the 5S to be good for what they are, but who wants to wear earbuds for the workday? Also, I have many years experience with Polycom conference phones, having used a full-sized and priced version as my primary phone in my law office.
Summary: Works great with my Galaxy S2 and S3 as a speaker phone. I had to use this in an emergency when our phone system was down and I used my mobile phone as the connection and this as the speaker phone and microphone in a medium sized conference room (15 people). No hum or buzz and clear audio at both ends. Controls the phone correctly via bluetooth, which is why I bought it.
Summary: Works like a charm! This is one of those rare products that is truly plug and play. The controls are intuitive and requires zero learning curve. The audio is clear and crisp. I couldn't be more happy with this product!
