Summary: The sound quality is the main issue with this phone. It is not always clear and can sound hollow. This was however the cheapest 2 line cordless phone around (all others around twice as much). Might spend more next time.
Summary: I purchased this phone system and accessory handsets to be used in my business. I own a very elaborate, independent answering machine that serves my needs beautifully, so the phone system that I wanted must be compatible with that answering machine. Interestingly, I have gone through two phone systems, and both have had the same problem: the answering machines sometimes spontaneously turn on.

Summary: The phone is pretty good. I like the weight of it when I hold it. It has good sound quality. It's a very good phone. I like that I can get an additional handset later on. :) The only thing that I don't love about it, is the handset ring tone is either loud or off. I'd like the ring tone to be quieter.
Summary: I first purchased this phone and an extension phone 8 years ago and just started having problems this year. Because I have never had ANY problems with either of them I didn't even look into another brand. I have purchased the base unit and extension again because they both work very well. I did have one small quark . . . the extension phone doesn't fit in the cradle of the base unit so I was having problems getting it to sync or register.
Good phone, but call waiting may be a problem for you

Summary: This is a nice cordless phone, with good range and, importantly for me, two-line capability at a reasonable price. Cons: not compatible with the Call Waiting feature offered by my phone company (Verizon, in Los Angeles area). When a call waiting call arrives, the phone automatically switches to the new call and drops the old one - very annoying! I like the phone so much that I canceled my call waiting service. But beware.
Summary: The Uniden 2-line phone operates well and gives a clear signal. I do wish the keypad numbers were bigger since i sometimes need to wear my glasses when dialing. However, it has many features for speed/memory dialing which will assist in this area.
Summary: Uniden TRU8866 5.8 GHz Digital Expandable 2-Line Cordless Speakerphone with Dual Keypads (Black) I have added 2 of the TCX905 handsets to this phone and it is simple to register each phone to this base unit as they are added. I love the 2-line usage I get and the feature that lets me copy every phonebook entry to each of the other handsets.
