This is The Best multi-handset cordless phone because it allowed the clearest conversations and was easiest to set up in tests conducted by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute. Analysts rated this system highest for audio that was crisp and clear, unlike lesser models that were plagued by static or echoing. All the unit's functions are easily programmed via clear, onscreen instructions as opposed to models that require users to enter confusing codes or squint at miniscule displays. The phone system's DECT 6.0 technology allowed a call to be made up to 146' away from the base station, far superior to a model that dropped calls beyond 100'. The two-line digital answering machine/charging base has a large, easy-to-read LCD for caller ID (requires subscription), and can synch with up to four Bluetooth devices, enabling cell phone calls to be placed and received using any handset. It supports up to 12 handsets (one included; additional handsets sold separately). The cordless handset features a 20-number autodial memory, an illuminated keypad, and an intercom function. Handset battery provides up to seven hours of talk time on a full charge. Base: 9 3/4" L x 8 3/4" W x 4 1/4" H. (3 3/4 lbs.)

Great reception but very difficult to us

Returning phone as it has great reception range on the cordless handsets but as a phone, very difficult to use.

Terrific...and it has Bluetooth
By Eddie of Vegas
from Las Vegas, NV
Even though it is terrific you can not get more than 15-feet away fromthe base with a Bluetooth device.
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your feedback. Per the manual, the Bluetooth range should be a max of 30 feet.
Multi Handset Cordless Telephone
from Andover MA
The phone works very well; sound quality is excellent.
AT&T Phone System
By Yard Slave
We needed a wireless handset near a certain chair, and did not want to string wires all over or put in another phone jack. The base is good to have and replaces another phone. There are so many buttons, bells and whistles that it is a little intimidating--too easy to push the wrong thing if you aren't very careful. We will not use most of the features, so I guess we should not have gotten this model, but it seems like a high quality system.
from Edmonds, WA
Cordless handset is great - I can walk all over the house with it.
I am very happy with my new phone .

Not as easy to use as you suggested
from Little Silver New Jersey
I felt that I needed an IT degree to learn how to use it properly, and I am a fairly sophisticated user of new technology

from Longport, nj
i charged the handset for 24 hours, spoke on it for 20 min, a few hours later it had no charge. I could not set up other handsets, even after I unplugged all other house phones as suggested. Directions say to keep it in charger when not in use,

A few problems.
The "soft keys," including the menu selection and call log, are not particularly easy to fathom. My previous phone provided much easier access to the call log and when using the AT&T answering system there is no message light indicator on the phone.
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your comments. This phone has an answering machine tone that beeps every 10 seconds to let you know of new messages. This alert is off by default but can be turned on (see instructions in manual). With voicemail services, a small envelope icon should appear.
