Caution! Read This Reveiw!


If this phone phone didn't have such an issue with static interference, I would have rated it 4 out of 5. I know that my phone is not an isolated case--my sister happened to buy the same phone and she has the same issue.

Easy to use cordless phone. It's just what you would expect from a phone with most standards features. Easy to program too

No speaker phone. You cannot use both phones at the same time. When one phone is being used, the other one will not turn on. Worst of all, this phone has terrible static interference. Sometimes, it's impossible to hear your conversation. I feel like...

these rock!


when the phone rings and it speaks who is calling, a nice feature would be to have it configurable as to if it says the name or the number, currently only says the name

excellent battery life, uses standard batt's vs. a battery pack, great sound quality, don't interfere with wifi, great range, backlit keypad is a plus

Uniden Cordless Phone with Dual Receivers & Bases


When my last phone went kaput (broken, destroyed, incapacitated, no longer effective, capable, or valuable) I went on a search for a phone that would better fit our lifestyle and the crazy set-up of phone outlets in our house. See, the only two rooms...

You only need one phone jack for 2 handsets! Page lost handsets

You can't talk on two handsets at once. Interference with other wireless gadgets

Flimsy Fone


The Uniden DXAI5688-2 5.8 GHz Twin 1-Line Cordless Phone proves you get what you pay for. I bought this phone so I could have an extension upstairs without adding another outlet. The price at about $30.00 seemed like a pretty good deal until I got the ...

It is a cheap phone for a very cheap price

Waste of Plastic


The designer of this piece of useless garbage should be trapped in solitary confinement with this phone as his only source of communication - and the base on a table 15 feet outside his cell - because it quits working after about 10 feet. Total waste ...
