Phone is not good

 

Looks nice and professional

The speaker phone stopped working in only a coulple months and now the handset voice comes and goes unless you adjust the cord plugged into the hadset, have owned several at&t speaker phones but this is different than the previous phones

Excellent Phone

 

Needed a stand alone cordless phone for my business. Worked perfectly out of the box. Caller ID, speakerphone, and headset plug were the features I was looking for in a cordless.

Basic 2-line phone

 

I was not looking for a high-tech phone with tons of features when I purchased this phone. It is a basic 2-line speaker phone with the customary features (hold, mute, etc.). Works fine for what it is, an inexpensive, standard phone.

Great mid-level feature phone. Offers features clients want without too large a price tag. 2 lines if needed, let\'s you know if you\'ve missed a call, caller ID capable. A very functional phone.

Decent- Could be a great phone

 

I plan on buying another one of these phones even though the one I have is going wack. For me, the abundant phone features make up for the phone wackiness. I should have bought the extended warranty from NewEgg. I planned to send the unit back for...

Packed with features

Mediocre electronics ; Sent with electronic bugs built in ; Keypad tones (especially the #7 & #9) "lock on" for a continuous tone ; Headset function dead after 8 months ; Low price = you get what you pay for

I had to call AT & T, there is a defect in the phone [...] AT & T knows they have a problem and refuse to make it right. They are making me pay for [...] 1/2 hour on the phone to have them ask me to reset the phone, etc. Bad customer service on AT & T,...
