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.

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.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.
