Utilitarian device, not well thought out


"In use" light needs to illuminate when line is in use not when answering machine recording. Backlight on display needs to stay on to improve readability.

Attractive Design","Good Sound Quality

Display difficult to see

great phone for small office


I got this phone for our church office. It is perfect for our needs, and we love the large number pad - at least those of us who need reading glasses! We wanted a basic desk phone with an easy to use answering machine for whomever happens to be there...

Great phone for peoplw who have vision trouble.


Overall this is a good phone. I have always had success with phones that had the AT&T logo on them. This is my 4th AT&T phone. I have had other brands of phone and they do not stack up to the quality of this phone.

great for what I needed


This telephone was what I wanted. It is a phone with a cord and with an answering machine, caller ID and not too many extras to get in the way and go wrong. It was adaptable as a wall phone, too.

Super simple product for elderly


I purchased this for my grandmother. She was in need of a phone with larger buttons and a new answering machine. It works exceptionally well. Sound quality is good and the buttons are easy for her to see. The only problem I have had with it so far is...
