Good Phone - Reccommend it.


Quick, free, next day delivery by Staples; that was a good start. Easy setup and no problems. Haven't encountered any problems, after a couple of weeks use and don't expect any.

Receiver falls off of wall mount


Other than the fact that the receiver on the wall mount phone won't stay on the hook when hung, the phone would have been rated excellent. Need to figure out a way to wedge the wall mount so the bottom is out further so the phone stays on.

Great Telephone for any home


This is for our home. It was simple to set up all the auto dial numbers and then copy them to all the other phones and base station. Wonderful product!

Product Specifications

Package Includes: Corded Phone, Five Cordless Handsets & Charging Cradles, AC Adapters, Rechargeable Batteries, Telephone Cord and Printed Materials. The DECT2188 utilizes DECT technology with a frequency range of 1.9 GHz, which means you won't have to worry about this phone interfering with your Wi-Fi networks. In addition, you'll enjoy maximum voice security and the clearest voice reception, so there's no struggling to hear or be heard while talking on the phone. The DECT2188 includes a digital answering machine with handset access and an impressive 14-minute recording time, so you'll never miss an important message. The user friendly design of the DECT2188 offers menu prompts in both English and Spanish, while the backlit keypad makes it a snap to enter phone numbers or access features in any light setting. The large, easy-to-read LCD screen clearly displays the date, time, extension and other data and is also compatible with the caller-ID and call-waiting display. The 70 phone book locations and 30-number caller ID history help ensure that you'll never need to hunt for a number again. Enjoy the three-party conferencing option, great for talking to friends and family members. The DECT2188 truly adapts to your needs by being expandable to up to six handsets and by offering time-saving features. First, the high visibility message waiting indicator lets you immediately know when someone has left a message. And when you're on the phone and the call waiting beeps, you won't have to wait to find out who's calling--the LCD clearly displays the name and number of the caller in call waiting. (Note: to activate this feature, you must subscribe through your telephone company.) Use the handset as a speakerphone, transfer calls between handsets and personalize ringers so you'll know who's on the line before you pick up the phone.
