      We are currently using this telephone system in our home, and to be quite frank about it, none of us are happy with it. The main problem we have with the system is that there is no speaker phone or “hands free” system incorporated into it’s programming, so that means you have to walk around with the full hand set cradled up against your

      ear.

      Although we’ve programmed it to not take phone messages, there is constantly a number 1 in the message center (and if you check it, if just keeps saying, “You have one old message. End of messages. Beep.”

      The other thing that really bothers me about this telephone system is that the “in use or charge” button is constantly flashing. It reminds ...


      • me of the systems that flash when there is a message waiting, so I always have the urge to go check messages on the darn thing.

        The base is kind of wide, and somehow always seems to be in the way when I try to keep the phone on the base at the edge or the corner of a table or desk. It would

        have been better to have been streamlined just a little.

        I will not buy vtech’s products again unless they have come up with major overhauls of their designs and thought processes here. Next time I’ll look for some good brand name that won’t keep blinking at me every time I walk by. And I’ll certainly get a phone that allows me to use it hands free.

    Press “Setup” and then use the arrows to set the number of rings before the answering machine picks up. Press the “Announce” key on your Vtech 5.8 main phone base to listen to the greeting that people hear when they call you. Press “Record” to record a new greeting and then press “Announce” to listen to the greeting.
