Summary: We were cash poor when the batteries in our previous system went kaput. Bought this one and were quite pleased with it for about 6 months. Then keys started sticking - under the plastic front. Pry the front out a bit and it'd work ok for a while. Now - at about 8 months old it is acting bizarre and no amount of pushing buttons, prying cover helped. took it apart - removed face plates - nothing. Unplugged battery, waited a bit, plugged in and it is working again.....
Summary: It does it's job, I don't use it much, it's an extenstion phone for up stairs bedroom. The only draw back I have with it, is that when it rings, it's not very loud, but nice to have the phone upstairs when you need it..
Summary: I needed just an inexpensive basic phone to determine which gadget was causing me problems: the [Verizon] home wireless phone connection OR my old phone. (it turned out to be BOTH). My honest reason for this choice: it was the cheapest I could find. My home receiver includes voice messaging, so I did not want to duplicate this feature on the phone, then drive myself batty trying to find how to disable it in the owner's manual.
Summary: I Like the V-Tech Phones, had one several years ago, but the Battery Pack, within the Phone went Dead..as a result, i threw the phone away..It was a More expensive Model than the Entry Level Phone i Purchased.Very Happy with Purchase..*Except for the Volume of the Phone.. some Incoming Calls are Hard to Hear..But, Since i coupled this V-Tech Phone with a Magic Jack Go, and Purchased my Own Motorola Modem(for Comcast_144.00 with tax) i am Very Happy!!
