Higher quality than average, low radiation/energy.

 

I researched way too long before finally deciding on this phone. This is a higher quality than average phone, with all the basic features. Bluetooth is nice. Very low radiation in the ECO DECT mode is a huge plus, along with the energy savings. The...

Nice

 

I needed only one handset which is how I came to purchase this one. It's very cool and I haven't had any issues so far.

Good Phone

 

This is a very interesting German built phone with a touch screen and number pad. The base unit is small considering it includes the phone line connection and the answering machine. The biggest problem I have with this phone is the high cost of...
