Really Good & Affordable Purchase

 

I love how easy it was to set up. Even though it suggests that you charge the phones for 24 hrs or so I was able to use right out of the box.

Great phone!

 

I love this phone. I like that it has an answering machine with a preinstalled outgoing message on it. I like that it tells me I have a new message and I can even listen to my messages from the cordless phone. Great package!
