Uniden TRU 9488 Disappointing

 

I purchased the phone due to its positive ratings and a couple mandatory features. I wanted a phone with the speaker phone in the base so I could answer with one finger. I wanted large buttons on a base dial pad as this makes dialing easier with ...

Large buttons on base unit and the unit is reasonably easy to use

Very poor range, less than 50 feet ; small buttons on handsets

Consumer review by:

Best phone I've ever owned

 

Too many to mention...it's made life bearable (that's a bit much, but I'm very happy)

So far haven't figured out how to wall mount it...it's not in the manual.

BUYER BEWARE - SERIOUS PROBLEMS

 

Great features on the base unit. Uniden great at raising my hopes and dreams.

Handsets are unable to hold volume on incoming calls rendering them essentially useless.
