Nothing but praise for Uniden's TRU348


I bought the Uniden TRU348 about a year and a half ago and it has done nothing but prove it's value to me. There are several specific reasons why I like the phone and I'd like to take some time to share these... The Price: I was very lucky to find my ...

Poor customer service by UNIDEN!!


Purchased phone because of supposed good reputation in consumer magazines and other sources, turned out to be a big disappointment. Voice of callers faded in and out after a few months of use, then handset stopped communicating with base unit...

Good Value


I wanted to replace a 5 years old Nortel 49MHz cordless, which still works but has always had low handset volume, which means we cannot hear properly if the radio or TV is on. I bought two units to try, this Uniden and a GE 27936 (see that review). One...

Excellent range, lots of features

No wall mount option, overly complicated

Uniden TRU348 Cordless Phone


I just bought this phone a few days ago and my family and I really like it. Originally bought it for $100 at Wal Mart but saw it the next day at Circuit City for $80 and returned the first phone.

Good value. Good sound from phone and answering machine. Right mix of features

Display is a bit difficult to read. Top buttons on handset seem flimsy

This is not the one...


We got this phone to replace our 900Mhz BellSouth cordless phone. A friend had gotten one a month before, and loved hers, so I followed suit and ordered mine. I have since been very disappointed with my purchase...

Some nice features

Interference and choppy voice cut offs

Clear as a bell!


I just purchased this phone last weekend and so far my experience with it has been great! I needed a new phone because my last cordless phone was very difficult to hear on and if you went into a certain area of the house, there would be a lot of...
