Summary: These phones have cool features and ring tones but there is so much static on them that you can't hardly understand the people. I would not recommend them to anyone. Cool features aren't anything if you can hear who you are talking to. I even changed them around to see if it made a difference and plugged the phone line into another line in the other room and there is still just as much static so I know it is the phones because I never had it with my other phones.
Summary: We love these phones! We live in an older house and have limited phone jacks, and thats what first attracted us to this set of phones initially but once we got them and set them up it was the features that impressed the family so much. The ability to intercom from room to room has been wonderful and my teenagers love being able to set their own ringtones for their handsets. This is a GREAT buy and a wonderful quality, Overstock has impressed me once again!
Summary: I love this brand and I knew I'd be satisfied. I had the prior version of the same phone and they lasted about 3 years and they were great quality. When I saw that overstock had the same kind that I had to replace, I knew they were reliable and that it would be a great buy. The only problem I've had is that it had to come w/ an answering machine and I have voicemail.
Summary: So far we are enjoying the phone set. I like the feature where more than one person can speak to another party at the same time. The first set we had didn't have that. I like to use the "speaker phone" feature and so far the sound quality has been nice on that. There is a button on the base which you can use to find the phones if you misplace them...Of course we NEVER do that...! I can't really think of any negatives..
Summary: I thought the price was unbeatable, so I ordered this phone set right away. The main unit was somewhat defective and didn't work, but the other 4 units dispersed around the house worked fine. I called Overstock and told them of the issue. I couldn't have been more pleased with their service. They not only immediately sent me out a new order, but they explained that they didn't need the original one back either, saving me the cost of shipping.
Summary: Tried a few other phones and could not find one that was as good our old worn out Uniden phones. We just love the Global setup feature. Add a number to one phone and all phones have that number. You can setup or check the messages from any handset or from the base. Name each handset individually and intercom between handsets. Office, Parents, Den, Kitchen. Great phone system.
Summary: Had I taken the time to look the phone up on Uniden's website (since Overstock’s description does not include this info), I would've known this unit comes with a digital answering machine. Had I known that, I never would've made this purchase because I don't need or want an answering machine. If this were the only thing I didn't like about the phone, I could've dealt with it and just left the machine off. BUT...This phone is horrible.
Summary: This was a Christmas gift and went over very well. The phone does have an echo that can be overwhelming at times. I thought that it may be the location. But, when I took it to two friends' houses, the same occurred. One of the handsets was extremely scratched and mangled, but the others seemed in good shape. One of the batteries was damaged, also. The protective covering was sliced and the wires were not even connected.
