Excellent phone system for the price


Durable feeling, message notification on handsets, message pickup from handset.

Cannot use both handsets simultaneously. Belt clip is not tight enough on thin clothing.

Uniden Cordless Phone Model TRU5885-2


I purchased this telephone system and I've had nothing but problems with it. Although the phone has several nice features, there are inherent problems with this phone. After the first year, the cordless handsets started getting hot. Finally, ...

Lots of Nice Features

This Uniden phone is very unreliable. Very poor technical support. Customer support is non-responsive

Unident TRU 5885-2 - Mixed Feelings


I purchased the Uniden TRU5885 Cordless Phone Set in August of 2004, over five months ago. It was purchased as a replacement for my old telephone. The Uniden TRU5885 Cordless Phone Set was on sale at a great price and the concept of a ...

Great sound quality and range, lots of features, double handsets, and answering system

can't expand, can't use both handsets together, might accidentally leave the phone off the hook

This is an excellent phone package.


Since I have an 802.11b wireless network, 2.4GHz phones were out of the question. That being said, I ...

Digital answering machine. Speakerphone on the base and wireless handsets. Good clarity and range

Pricey, but that is to be expected for the new 5.8GHz phone technology

Good cordless phones for the money


WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR -------------------------------- I was looking for a phone that wouldn't degrade my 802.11b wireless PC connection. My other 2.4 GHz Uniden was very nice, with a much better speakerphone, but the wireless network ...

2 speakerphone handsets, answering machine, base speakerphone, clear reception
