Consumer review (

"It's a phone." is the only way to describe this.


There is a 1.0 second delay when dialing from when you push a button to when it registers and "beeps". But, you don't have to wait around for each button, you can just dial the number and it will catch up. I felt like I received good value for what I...

No frills, no nonsense. It's easy to setup and makes phone calls. The answering machine works OK and I haven't had any issues with it like some others

Call volume is quieter than I prefer even at "max". No speaker phone. Clunky menu system, but it works. Average range, average battery life

Not unhappy with the phone system, but not impressed. Works to specifications, just some shortfalls related to use.

Multiple handsets, answering machine

Directory isn't shared between phones, message record time is shorter than it could be (11 minutes for messages)

Cordless phone works quite well


We wanted to buy a cordless phone for our home & we zeroed i on this model since it had anwering system & caller If. the the volume is fine & it holds charge for long. Also the wireless radius is quite huge. I am impressed.

It is fine.


I am not happy with this phone, and plan to return it. Often it will not let me dial out - it acts like the buttons don\'t connect - and sometimes the phone won\'t connect when a call is answered. I am disappointed because it was highly rated by

I bought this unit for a home office because with digital voicemail the fax doesn't pick up. I tested to make sure the fax machine would answer, and it did - I was thrilled. Tonight I was changing a setting on the phone and heard the outgoing...

Great Cordless phone for the Money!!


The VTECH CS5121 is a great cordless phone for the money--$24.99!!  The one thing I did notice was the voice recorder was just a bit scratchy when I recorded my own message. Still clear enough to understand, just turned the volume up one number. Sleek...

Bad static sound


I bought this for my mom for Christmas. It looks nice, easy to set up and use. When I called her, the first minute it sounded great, then all of a sudden when she would talk, her and I both would hear static and crackling. She said I sounded fine...
