      I purchased a set of these phones -two cordless handsets, the answering machine/charging base, and the remote charging base, just over a year ago. I have not been happy with them. The number buttons on the handsets are bad about not functioning correctly. Either they are too sensitive and enter the number multiple times or you have to push down hard to get a number to register.

      You have to enter the phone number before touching any other function to be able to delete numbers, which is a hassle because the hard to use buttons cause you to mess up all the time. There is no


      audible tone when you put the handset back in the charger to let you know that it is connected to the charger correctly. I have found fully discharged handsets sitting in the charger because they weren’t touching the contacts.

      The answering machine works well and is easy to use. It will store several messages and they can be saved. If you subscribe to voice mail this phone will work with it, but I haven’t used it for that.

      It will also work with call waiting and can be used to store up to 50 telephone numbers in alphabetical order. Inputting the info on one handset will ...


      • automatically put it into the other. The screen on each phone is rather small and hard to read due to glare.

        The ring volume and tone settings are easy to change and have a adequate range of values. There are some 6 volume settings. When answering a call you have to press a button not just pick up the handset.

        There are volume control buttons on the handsets to increase or decrease call sound volume. It has a speakerphone function but you have to stay close to the handset when using it because the mike won’t pick up sounds well over any distance. The batteries have

        held up well and will hold a charge for over ten hours before needing a recharge.

        The redial function will remember up to five phone numbers. The fact that the buttons on the handsets malfunction all the time makes this phone very hard to use. I will call a bank or business where I am told to input certain numbers and the phone will mess it all up because the buttons won’t enter a number or will enter one multiple times.

        The transmitter in the base has a good range of around 75 yards before getting static-y. Over all this phone has not lived up to the AT&T name.
