Excellent sound, a few annoyances

 

To get the telephone number of incoming calls that aren't in your phone list you have to hit the * key. That is a bit of a 'con' too.

Outstanding sound quality. The best phone I've ever used in terms of sound quality. Lots of configurable features. Can transfer one set of stored phone numbers to the other handset. Excellent range. I haven't been able to go far enough away to lose...

No Bueno

 

I switched to a Panasonic model: KX-TG6051M and am in love with it. The talking CID feature is great. If your a feature hound, then buy the Panasonic.

Product Specifications

With voice clarity as clear as a face to face conversation, the CD4 series puts the emotion back into a call. HD sound brings people and their feelings closer together. Thanks to an advanced digital technology, calls are undisturbed by interferences from other devices. Handsfree mode uses a built-in loud speaker to amplify the voice of the caller, allowing you to speak and listen during a call without holding the phone to your ear. This is especially useful if you want to share the call with others or take notes during a call.
