Summary: We have been using these handsets at our business for about 3 years now and they have been dropped on cement floors, soaked in water and used to answer phone calls all day long. They have certainly stood up to the durability test. The only reason that I did not give them 5 stars is the rubber around the edges has worn off on some of the handsets and the numbers and lettering on one of the keypads are no longer visible.
Summary: the service from overstock.com was simple and quick. i got the phone to use at the pool, but it won't even get receptiion out the back door. Sure, it floats, but it won't be going to the pool.
Summary: Mine cannot be used past 30 feet from the base. I cannot even get a signal from 15 feet on the other side of the office wall. This thing sucks. I have 8 standard Uniden receivers and they all get reception in the same spots.
Summary: We bought the phone set from Sams Club and it came with this Waterproof Handset. It's the best phone of the entire set! I had an accident and mine got smashed, so I reordered another one because it's such a great phone. I would recommend this too anyone that wants an "outdoor" phone.
Summary: Bought this phone on 4/20/08. Had the older version and that worked okay but it was sometimes very hard to hear if the phone got wet. THIS phone works great even after getting soaked. My son was playing with it in the spa just to test it. Haven't actually let it fall to the bottom of our 8-foot pool (which is conveniently the max depth of waterproofness of this phone). I love the fact that the TWX977 accessory handset is fully compatible with our TRU9488.
Summary: I have two of there¡¦s phones. One at my apt in Sherman oaks, CA, and one at my house in West Palm Beach, FL. I use the one in Sherman oaks while I¡¦m ¡§in¡¨ the pool, and the West Palm Beach one in the shower. I get a lot of phone calls from clients from both the east and west costs and at the worst times, and being bi-costal sure makes that a little more difficult them I¡¦d like. So I swim with one and use the other next to the shower.
Summary: As far as I could find, Uniden makes the only waterproof cordless handsets available. They float, too! They should know something about making these waterproof since they are a major manufacturer of marine radio equipment. This handset is ideal for setting on the edge of the spa or leaving in the cup holder of a pool float. Good in the bathroom, too. The sound and features are terrific, especially the speaker and intercom capabilities.
Summary: I have recently bought two of these phones and, while I've not tried them out in water yet, they function quite well. My only complaint was somewhat with the lack of documentation on the handset phone. The directions aren't clear as to how you link a remote phone to the base. On the base unit there is a button on the bottom that you use to link them. Once I figured it out they work fine. I really like the intercom feature.
