Cordless Phone

19 posts in this topic

Looking for a decent home phone. I have tried 2 in the last 5 weeks and have returned both. I have no problem spending $$$ to get a decent one.

Thanks

If you have high speed internet service, That could be your problem. You need to have a cordless phone that is 5.8 GHz. When we went high speed service my cordless loss volume. A sales person at best buy told me I had to go to 5.8 GHz. I bought a Panasonic and it worked.

Merely having high speed internet shouldn't cause your wireless phone to not work.

You mean a wireless router might interfere with a cordless phone, right?

Whoaru99 is right on both. The only way you should have problems with DSL is if you don't use any filters. A wireless router can interfere with a 900Mhz phone but you should be able to change the frequency on the router to stop the problems.

I have had no problems with Panasonic brand cordless and we have both 900Mhz and 5.8Mhz and they both are very clear and seem to have good battery life.

Uniden is my choice 4 recievers one that is waterproof and each with its own charging base. Had it 3 years now and still clear as a bell with know problems except for comcast service not the phones fault.

I have a Panasonic now and I'm very happy.

Sony was a good phone also. I left the handset in the engine bay of my truck and went for a 2300 miles transport. When I got back (and found it) it was still working fine with no problem (a little beateb up). It couldn't reach the base when I was in South Carolina, but maybe it was too far.... grin

I worked at BB for a few years selling home electronics and the Panasonic and Sony were the nicest and most dependable.

whoa 99,

I didn't say I lost service. I said I lost the quality of the sound/tone. I know nothing about electronic's but I know that when I replaced my cordless phone with the Panasonic 5.8 it was like night and day.

Don't buy a Vtech. I have one that has the answering machine on it and when I try to record my answering message I sound like someone that's on downers and under water.

And I didn't say you did either.

I was just trying to clairify what you said.

If you have a wireless router it's possible your phone and wireless router weren't playing nicely.

Or, as someone mentioned, if you have DSL, maybe the line filters dropped the volume a bit.

5.8 and above are fine with wireless. I just went through this and found a very cool set of phones. I went with an AT&T DECT 6.0 set. They come in a three pack, you can use two at the same time, set different ring tones on them, intercom between them and the coolest feature of all is they have bluetooth on them. I paired my cell phone up to them so when I'm at home I can just set my phone down. If I get a cell call it rings to the home phone and can be answered by them. You can also make calls through your cell phone by pressing the cell key. They are cool for sure. I got them at Sam's for $90, way cheaper than other places I found them.

Those ATTs look pretty sweet.

I have Panasonic 5.8GHz that work pretty well. They're the version just before the DECT 6.0 stuff started being more available.

I have this very problem with my volume. It was frustrating not being able to hardly hear anyone. I have an older uniden cordless. I thought the battery was the problem, which it wasn't, then I thought the phone was just getting old (over 12 years). Now I know what to buy. My phone wasn't a 900 or 5.8 ghz.

That is interesting as mine is a uniden also and it is older. Its a 900 mz. It worked fine until I hooked up the DSL modem.

I checked my phone and it was a 900 mhz. So I went and bought another analog uniden 5.8 and all is good now. I considered buying a digital phone, but I wanted to save some money.

    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
