Summary: At first the phone was great. Then it began losing its signal, I would get my voice back in a shrill echo and then a dial tone. People were constantly thinking I was hanging up on them and I was losing important calls. I would not recommend this phone to anyone who needed to be on it for more than a minute.
Summary: The perks: caller ID, multiple ringtones, and a silence option. The downside: Terrible reception! I have a fairly small house and I lose reception if I walk too far from the base. It may be cordless, but don't expect to talk too far away from the base.
Summary: I bought my phone in February 2011. It has worked great for me while it lasted. Now I am here to buy another one, because mine is taking a dive but after 17 months, and for the price of less than $18, I don't think is bad. While it worked it was great. It kept a charge while off the base for 20+ hours. There were many times I have talked on it for 5-8 hours with no interruptions or battery going dead. I would definitely recommend.
Summary: I have never before had a house phone that drops calls, but this one does it. I'll be talking and if I quit hearing the other person I'll look at the phone and it'll say "Searching". It happens everywhere in the house and outside. I can be talking on the couch right beside the base and it still loses connection. Don't risk it with this phone. You shouldn't have to worry about dropping calls on a land line.
Summary: HATE THIS PHONE! I can never make any calls it works when it wants to, it either searching or has no dial tone or drops the call because it just stop working! DO NOT BUY! NOT WORTH ALL THE HASSLE.
Summary: Bought this phone for the office. Started dropping calls. Not good being on the phone with a customer and lose the call. Not happy with phone at all. Would not recommend to anyone. Stay away from this phone.
Summary: husband can hear better with this phone than he can with the land line. it is also is great for having next to the bed at night when you don't have a phone outlet near for those emergency middle of the night calls.
Summary: Picked this up at Walmart, plugged it in, charged, the battery, wouldn't work. Couldn't get dial tone. Contacted customer service, was given a convoluted routine to try and get it to work. No luck. Apparently there is a manufacturing and/or software bug, because their suggestion involves basically trying to reprogram the device. Never got it to work. Don't spend your money on this one.
