VTech VT5831 review: VTech VT5831

 

VTech VT5831

Operates in the 5.8GHz frequency; built-in speakerphone on the base and handset; accepts up to six handsets; solid battery life.

Experienced some interference on the 2.4GHz band in our tests; small phone book; no answering machine; headset sold separately.

The 5831 falls a tad behind other 5.8GHz phones but not by much.

Good Features, But A Little Pricey.

This is not your cheap, entry level phone anymore!

 

My first experience with this phone was when Bellsouth sent one with their logo on it. When I received my first bill for it, it promptly was returned as they had told me the phone was just $30 not 6 (yes, 6) installments of $30!! Installments?!! On ...

Decent range, an impressive array of features, ease of use and oh yeh, cool styling!

Vtech had an almost perfect phone, but ruined it with a lousy battery.
