These features work well but the sound quality is not that good. The speaker where you put your ear has only a very small slit opening that makes it hard to hear a caller unless you move the phone to just the right position on your ear. Even with the volume turned all the way up it is annoying to use. AT&T; phones used to be some of the best cordless phones on the market but they are now made by a subsidary of VTech called Advanced American Telephones. I would not purchase this phone again and would be cautious about a phone from Advanced American Telephones or Vtech.Nice features, but not clearI just bought this phone yesterday. I love the features it offers and it is very easy to program, etc. The problem I have with it is that it has some static/background noise and a definate clicking sound that is irritating while your trying to have a conversation. I was hoping that this would be a good phone, but I’m planning to take it back today and try something else.The best one I’ve found….I’ve been through a number of these cordless phones and I always come back to AT&T.; This one is perfect if you want a good clear cordless phone without spending a fortune. Previously I had this same 1400 series with an answering machine built in but the answering machine lasted about a year before it became garbled and unclear. It looks like AT&T; could build a good answering machine doesn’t it? Oh well, now I have a seperate Sony answering machine and this. There are some things I don’t like. It’s analog instead of digital and it has nicad batteries. Just make sure you get the “battery low” warning before you put it on the charger. Otherwise nicad batteries will develop a memory and only hold the short charge they become accustomed to. I honestly believe most of the battery complaints I read about are people who don’t know how to treat nicad batteries. They need to be cycled, which means run down completely and charged completely to retain their memory. This phone is always clear and has good range. It is comfortable and has good features. You can even select a distinctive ring tone for your girlfriend.
