Range is horrid


Unless you're going to sit right next to the receiver - pass on this product.

Not Fancy but takes alot of abuse


We purchased this phone set several years ago from Sams wholesale for around 39.99. Though this model lacks any real modern features it is able to withstand extensive abuse. We have dropped one of the phones in the bathtub, off a balcony and ran over...

Uniden DXAI5588-4 5.8 GHz Quad 1-Line Cordless Phone


When our old Panasonic cordless phone and answering machine was beginning to fail, basically, the dial pad was not working and buttons hard to punch, we were looking for a replacement. The replacement was on our Christmas list and the portable phone ...
