Features

Easy-to-use Big Buttons on Handset & Base No more fumbling to find the right key, and no more dialing the wrong number with the streamlined handset and base keypad configurations.
Advanced TAD Functions Panasonic keeps you in touch with Advanced Answering Device Functions on select models. Now you can be alerted to recorded messages whether you're at home or on the road. When a caller records a message, the base unit will beep alerting those in the house. Not at home? The phone will automatically send a message to a registered cell or office phone along with playback options.
Enhanced Noise Reduction The Enhanced Noise Reduction feature available on select 2014 models lets you suppress background noise around the caller while simultaneously enhancing their voice making it easier to hear them. So a parent getting a call from their teenager at a concert can hear what time to pick them up or when a friend calls from a noisy ballgame, you can hear where to meet afterwards.
Key Detector Compatible Attach the optional Key Detector to your car key ring or other easily misplaced items and forget about ever losing them ever again. Using any of your telephone handsets, you can activate the Key Detector's beeping alarm and quickly track down your lost keys. Key Detector's powerful range finds objects up to 200 yards away so you'll find whatever's lost whether it's upstairs, in your car or in the yard. You can register up to four Key Detectors and give each a distinctive name, like Dave's keys, Sharon's keys, etc.
Power Back-Up Operation A powerful battery back-up system keeps you connected when the power goes out. Keep a charged handset in the base unit and you can still make and receive calls with the other cordless handsets.
Talking Caller ID Now you can hear who's calling from across the room without having to get up. Using text-to-speech technology, Panasonic phones featuring Talking Caller ID announce caller ID information in between rings. What could be more convenient?
Large, 1.8" White Backlit Handset Display See who's calling at a glance on our wide, 1.8-inch LCD and set screen. Featuring black against a white-backlit display, it's crystal clear and easy to read-even from a short distance away.
DECT 6.0 PLUS Technology Enhanced version of DECT 6.0 in which transmission quality and range are improved by increasing the frequency of error correction up to 80x.

Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 59 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Complicated This is a good basic phone for a low price, but it's a bit too complicated to use many of the advertised features. Many features require entering codes to use and using the manual every time unless you use those features every day. Definitely not for the technologically challenged individual. The silent mode option that lets you turn off the handset ringer when you are sleeping is not a push one button feature as I had hoped, it requires entering codes and then start and stop times. Although the base unit has a plug-in AC connection cable, the charging bases for the additional handsets are hardwired. Accordingly, I was unable to hide the cables through predrilled holes of desk/furniture/built-ins as I was able to do with a previous cordless phone system. August 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by it is hard to write a review on something i just got but so far so good August 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by New and Improved This is a new and improved version of this style. The phone announcer actually says anonymous, not annaneemus. There are still some phonetical challenges for the robotic announcer. The buttons are large and easy to read. Easy to use if one has salon fingernails. It has the ability to retain 250 phone numbers for blocking. Wish it were more! But this is huge compared to the last version we had with 20. Power cords are connected to bases so we were unable to drop the plug through desk holes to power source. August 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Too Early to Tell The system has been installed for two days. Panasonic should wait a month before asking for an evaluation. The clarity, sound, features are great. Set up was easy. Too early to tell how the product will preform long term. Our last Panasonic system lasted for 15 years. August 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 Good cordless phone I have had this phone for a week now and so far have had no problems and easy to use. I have never had problems with Panasonic cordless phones like other brands. August 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use..... I wanted an uncomplicated, easy to use phone. I have a smartphone that I use when I want to find out how to fix my life.....I just wanted a phone I could spend an hour visiting with my daughter. This is the phone I have, a easy to use, pleasant to use phone.....I love it. I had a Panasonic before, it lasted for years and so I wanted another one. Very satisfied August 17, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Message sound quality could be better I love this phone but wish the sound quality was better on the outgoing message. It just sounds a little tinny August 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best value for the price For the basics this was much easier to setup than other reviews I read. The lettering in the display is bigger than I have seen and easy for an older person to read. We are currently testing the different rings for group settings (A different ring for people you know) since the number of crank calls has increased exponentially since Obama took the presidency. The keypad is much larger than the set we had before. August 16, 2015
