Don't buy this piece of garbage


I really regret leaving that first good review. Next time I'm going to wait at least a couple of months.

I was happy with this phone when I first got it and before I had really used it.

Messages are almost unintelligible making the phone unusable as an answering machine which is what I bought it for.

Good value for the price


Anybody remember those nice 2 cassette analog machines? If you wanted to save some messages you could pop the tape out and put in a new one.

I haven't seen anything anywhere near this price that can do what this unit can. There is one large talk button that picks up the line and hangs up rather than the 2 small buttons that a lot of other phones have. You also have complete control of the...

When you unplug the base station, you lose the time that has been set but it keeps the outgoing message. At the low price, I'm not really complaining

Had one for 2 1/2 years, stills works


I have had this phone for about 2 1/2 years and it still works, just now replacing battery. Good value!

Durable, Easy To Set Up

Uncomfortable Handset

Consumer review by:

waste of money


Within 6 months I had to replace the battery in the phone (about $15.00). Now, a few months later, the phone has completely stopped working. If the battery is drained every 6 months, one would be paying for a new phone annually.

Do Not Buy!


We bought this phone and it just stopped working after a couple of weeks. The hand set rings, but the answering machine just stopped working - another cheap product by GE that is a waste of money. Don't waste your time, money or energy on this one.
