Summary: I did not realize that I was purchasing a refurbished item until it arrived and had a sticker on the box. The phone does work but has blemishes. I found the same item brand new at a retailer in my area for the same price so now I do not think that I got a "deal"
Summary: this phone seriously stinks. the ONLY redeeming factors are its ease of setup. the voice quality is horrible, and the range is the worst of any phone i've ever used. you may as well just buy a wired handset with a 100 foot cord.
Summary: This Uniden 5.8 GHz phone is even worse than my 10-year old 900Mhz phone. I returned it the next day after trying a couple of phone calls. The reception is absolutely lousy, even if standing just outside the back door about 20-25 feet away from the base. Uniden should toss this model out along with its engineers who developed this phone.
Summary: This phone has some nice features and is easy to operate. But this phone's range is poor. We can hear static when using the receiver at the opposite end of our house, and when I carry it outside, I can go no farther than about 150 feet before it loses its signal and cuts off. Like most people, we have had numerous cordless phones over the years, of several major brands. Although this one is easy to understand and operate, it has the shortest range of any of them.
Summary: So far this is the best phone I have ever owned. I got this same phone in the two headset version. <br /> There are several things I like about this phone:<br /> - Ring tone is pleasant and can be made quiet or off entirely.<br /> - answering machine voice is easy to understand and not very machine sounding<br /> - you can dial the number and hit talk like on cell phones<br /> - The audio thus far has been crystal clear, i haven't heard a single snap or pop yet.
Summary: This phone is the worst I've ever seen. Bought it for more range. With my old phone I could go outside and get about 400 feet away and it would still work. This phone I couldn't even go in the other room without getting static or getting disconnect from the person I was talking to. It's just a very bad phone.
Summary: I would like to type a review for this phone but I am still waiting to receive it! It seems someone sent it, after I ordered and prepaid for it, to the wrong address and UPS then sent it back to amazon as undeliverable. That was yesterday but amazon still will not take the blame, they want ME to keep checking for reasons why I never received it!! This whole thing is sickening! Is this phone any good? I wish I knew.
Summary: Well I bought this before the last two negative reviews were placed, but I'm glad I did! It was a bit complicated to get the headset to work, but after reading the instruction book it works perfectly now. I live in an apartment and don't have any static and can use it anywhere which I'm so happy about compared to my last phone!!! The answering machine has no problems.
