Summary: I had so many problems with the phone system that I contacted Uniden directly and they could not fix the problem. I had as many dropped calls as a cell phone! When I was actually able to get a dial tone, there was static and outside noise. I had to plug my old phone in to make calls.
Summary: I was looking for cordless phones WITHOUT an answering machine because I have the voicemail through the phone company. It is not easy to find a set without an answering machine with multi handsets. It also happens this is the same mfg as my last set - that lasted me many years.
Summary: I shopped around in my home town for a phone with 4 handsets. I only found one and the features were okay. I looked on Overstock.com and found this phone which has lots of features at an affordable price.
