Summary: This phone has no speaker phone capability, can't participate in meetings and type notes at same time. Unfortunately I purchased and installed before realizing. Mistakenly thought all phones had this feature. Live and learn.
Excerpt: Just started using this phone + answering machine, and I am well pleased with the sound and ease of use.. Almost bailed on a land phone completely, but gave it one more try with this one. Not disappointed at all. Would buy the VTech again.
Excerpt: I bought this system for my home office because I needed a answering machine and a phone and this in one unit was less expensive then buying them sepretely I was impressed by the quality. The ease of use is a real plus for me! The sound quality is great and it is nice and compact, which is great!
