Caller ID, Headset Jack, Mute button, Speaker phone, multiple line capability

Speaker Phone is a little muffled and picks up background noise so cuts in and out sometimes

Very Nice!


Overall, this is a very nice phone. Prior to this one, owned a model 993. This is the replacement for it, so many features and benefits came easy, some new ones were more difficult to understand. It CANNOT be beat for the price!

Convenient, attractive, many features, easy operation

Some setup features hard to understand

Works for awhile


Bought seven of these a little over a year ago. One died right away, now all but two are not working correctly. The screens don't work, they don't ring all the time, and they put calls on hold in the middle of the conversation. Just a joke.

solid phone for the price


I bought this phone because it was one of the few that allow for a head set connection, and was reasonable priced. I have no complaints so far, phone works as expected.

It's a great price, no down sides, simply plug in your phone lines, you don't need to set anything up. We needed a straight forward phone to make calls with. A key requirement was that it have a speaker button. The price was below anything else. The...
