Connects your land line, mobile phone, and Bluetooth headset. Lots of personalization options. Good sound. Tons of features

Expensive. Complex setup. Mediocre battery life. Doesn't work with some Bluetooth phones

A great phone for home workers who use both wired and cellular phones.

Classy; but


Works great if you are not more than 20 feet away from the base. Company claims the federal government made them cut down the distance so as to not interfere with others on the 5.8 band
