Excerpt: This replaced an older WXI477 which had its base mounted on a wall phone jack in our barn. We were disappointed this new model's base doesn't permit mounting on a wall jack. Otherwise, this new model seems improved in all of its other features over the older model.
Excerpt: We have used Uniden cordless phones for many years usually we lose one or drop it whether floor or water. So we thought perfect bright color hard to lose, waterproof awesome drop oh well. We had this phone for 2 weeks and the battery will not hold for even 2hrs off the base. Very disappointed. Will attempt to call tomorrow. Hoping it is just a case of a bad battery. Really like the phone. Have yet to drop it.
Excerpt: This phone is great when it comes to being rugged and submersible. My husband dropped it in a bowl of water just to test if it really was, I was so glad it still worked after that. The sound is great and everything else with this phone is great. EXCEPT the battery life. My phones battery MAYBE stays charged for an hour long conversation. I can take the phone off the charger in the morning and have it close to me all day but after about 8 hours, the battery is dead again.
Excerpt: Bright color is great for locating. It has a long battery life. I really like the clarity of the voice. It is the best phone I have purchased. Best of all its water proof !!!! Great for around the pool.
Summary: Excellent cordless phone with great sound quality. The key pad is very functional and color combination is allright. - Cons: Feels a bit heavy -- definitely more than the panasonic models The display is rather old school and when you toggle through settings etc, it appears sluggish By and large, a great cordless phone!
