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.

    • Good luck.  Hope your efforts pay off.
    • I'll be getting out again on Tuesday with the bow. It has been very hard finding time to get out this year, between work and a 4 month old at home. Last time out I spent 12 hours in the blind and saw quite a few birds during the middle of the day. Had multiple times where I thought it was going to happen but the Toms wouldn't commit 100%. Making a small adjustment this go round and hoping things come together.
    • Was thinking for hunting and maybe put a plow on it to use at my place up north. Wouldn't be my main driver. Was thinking around 15K for budget but that was before I did much looking mostly on line so far. But might step up in price for the right rig. And a lot of that would depend if I liked the newer V6 engine and 5 speed auto or 6 speed trany and less miles etc. Just by looking at dealer prices on line I would think a guy could find a pretty nice late model for around 20 or less. I think if I bought a nicer later model I would drive it more as they look like they have made the interior a lot nicer and more comfortable than the older ones. On the other hand if I ran across a real clean older one with the in line 6 and not to many miles for the right price that would be an option to. The drawback to a newer shiny one it might take a while before I ran it down the brushy trail.

    • Our MN hunt this year was just about as easy as they come.  Sutty and I arrived at different times, he was late, and set up on opposite sides of the field as planned.  I could hear the birds gobbling in the valley below in their usual spot, and they sat there a long time in the cold.  Sutty couldn't see because he was on the back side of a finger of trees because he didn't want to spook anything out since he was late...  Eventually they got down and proceeded to sit on the far hill for a while longer.  I could see a 6 or so males, but suspected most were jakes, and a few hens.     Just when I was getting tired of waiting, about 8:30am, I saw one gobbler enter the field and walk straight towards Sutty's position.  As the bird got in front of Sutty, another nice gobbler came into the field.  I called to him but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Sutty shot the first bird, and the second one didn't know what happened.  Of course Sutty came running out of his blind and scared off the second bird that he didn't even know was there.      Sutty just bought a new house and had to head home asap to help his wife with packing things, and his daughter didn't seem too interested in shooting her own bird this year.  Now that she saw how ridiculously easy it is she probably won't be interested next time either.      I figured I should get to the edge of the field the birds were coming out on, and as I started moving my blind I bumped some hens that hadn't yet come up all the way out of the valley.   I finished getting my blind in place and sat a while, but it seemed we had scared the remaining birds out of the area, or maybe they were just laying low out of the wind.  In any case I went to get some lunch and let things settle down for a while.     After a couple hours of eating and casting for fish that weren't there, I decided I would head back up to sit in my blind.  Just as I reached the top of the hill to see into the field I saw three big gobblers walking across the field.  I ducked down and ran around the edge of the field out of their view to get closer.     I crawled up to about 10yd from the field edge, as far as I could go without being seen, and started calling.  They liked what they heard, but wouldn't commit right away.  After maybe 10 minutes of me cutting and purring, and all three of them strutting and gobbling out at 60-70 yards they started coming.  I couldn't see them well through the brush I was behind, and they didn't want to walk through it.  If I was at the edge of the field I could have shot them, they were within 40yd.  They proceeded to do a big arc along the field edge back to where I had just walked.     After a couple minutes of not seeing them I picked up my call, they gobbled, and then I saw them marching in where I had just walked.  When I last saw them going this direction I had shifted to face that way, I was now facing the tree I just had my back against, which put my butt in a thorn patch and the barrel to one side of the tree.  The birds started walking to the other side, so as they got behind the tree I eased the barrel to the side they were going to come out on.  They started coming up the other side back to the field they were just in and were too close together for a shot.  Finally one eased out in front and I let him have it.  He tipped backwards and rolled back downhill, and didn't even kick until I went over to grab him.  27 yards with the range finder after the fact.       Both birds turned out to be very nice old birds with long spurs.     Sutty's weighted 22lb 4oz, 10" beard, 1 3/16" spurs.  I believe this is his best turkey to date.     My bird weighted 25lb 8oz, 10" beard, 1 1/8" spurs.  My best turkey by weight and age.     Sutty and his bird.        Me and my bird.  I shot from one of the trees above this rock I think.      
    • Got it done in mn.  More to come when I get home.
    • Go to a license agent and buy one for your desired season. Season C, is on process thru May 2nd. Season D, is May 3rd thru May 9th. Season E, is May 10th thru May 16th. Season F, is May 17th thru May 31st. Season F also allows anyone with an unused tag from earlier season to hunt this period as well.   Hope this help PF.  
    • How do the over the counter licenses work this year? I missed last season but would like to get out this year even though I didn't apply for the lottery.
    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
