Plantronics CT12 2.4 GHz Cordless Headset Telephone


The single-line Plantronics CT12 2.4GHz Cordless Headset Telephone combines a two-mode headset (wear it over your head or on one ear) and a phone with 5.5 hours of continuous talk time per battery charge. The flashing red usage indicator light should...

Plantronics CT12 Cordless Phone


Because cellular phones have become omnipresent in everyday life it's rather odd to come home to a phone that doesn't offer the same features. Corded phones, for one, seem so Alexander Graham Bell. Still there are cordless phones, but why do they have...

Once I added this device to my home office it managed to make useless any device within range including routers, print servers ect.

comfortable headset

Will render useless any wireless device in range

Plantronics CT12


While the phone itself does what it is supposed to -- it's also rather cost effective -- it's absolute disregard for "plays well with others" makes it an automatic box & return ship. Not only does the device completely jam the wireless Wi-Fi and the...

Does what it intends to do

Runs roughshod over any wireless device nearby

Plantronics CT12


While my fingers are nimble enough to easily thread a needle, the design makes it hard to remove the phone from the stand in time to answer a call. Note that the cup in the stand is narrow at the base and widens at the top. This makes a gap at the top,...

The phone is small

Hard to remove from stand

I love this phone. I also had the previous 900mhz model and made sure I stayed with the same product line once it went south. Unfortunately this 2.4ghz device completely shuts down my wireless router (including the wired connections) on a regular basis...

Great portability. Comfortable headset

Interferes with my wireless router

PLANTRONICS CT12 2.4 GHz Digital 1X Handsets Cordless Headset Telephone - Retail


Very nice headset. The sound quality is tops. The phone unit is about the size of a beeper. Oh, and the price was very reasonable.

I wish you could talk with the main unit in hte charger. I am not sure why Playtronics designed it that you could not.

Do not buy this phone if you have a wireless network


Wish I knew before I purchased.

This is an excellent cordless hands-free phone as long as you do not have any other wireless devices at home.

I have been using this phone for several days now and I have a wireless network at home. This phone completely shuts down my entire wireless network.

Would buy another


Wish there was a way to charge the phone while using it. Wish there was a bit more noise reduction; especially for wind noise (I like to work from my backyard). In order to mute you have to hold down the button for 3 seconds.

Headset is very comfortable. Mic picks up the wearers voice very well and does a respectable job of not picking up other sounds. Range is a bit better than other 2.4 ghz phones I've had. Well, built...survives falls from waist level (see con). Battery...

It doesn't take much to detach the belt clip from the phone. Maybe my wife and I are just clumsier than normal people but the phone has hit the floor several times. LED on the mic could be brighter. It's not pictured (in specifications say "two in...
