Summary: Didn't work. After 5 minutes, the handset died, had to be recharged, then only good for another 5 minutes. I was very disappointed. This was a replacement for another Uniden phone that I'd had for years, with no problem. The batteries just finally got to where they wouldn't hold a charge, but even after 6-8 yrs, they lasted longer than the ones in the new phone. I returned it and purchased another brand.
Summary: I've had this phone for about 2 weeks now and it is working perfectly. I enjoy that you can personalize ringtones for different parties that call and very clear background, great reception. The price was GREAT!
