image001Everyone talks about cell phones – I certainly spend a great deal of my time looking for the latest and greatest… but the home phone which many people still have are alive and well – recently we‘ve been having some dropped calls and I needed to get the home phone up and running. I had the ability to review the VTech CS6859-2 (yah the name isnt sexy) but this 2-Handset Cordless Answering System with Caller ID/Call Waiting is just what the doctor ordered. The price was right less then $60 and had all the features I needed…

  • Digital Answering System – With up to 14 minutes of recording time, the digital answering system grabs calls when you can’t.
  • Caller ID/Call Waiting – Know who’s calling with Caller ID/Call Waiting by storing 50 calls. Handset displays the name, number, time and date of incoming calls.
  • Full Duplex Handset and Base Speakerphones – Enjoy a speakerphone that can keep up with your calls. Increase participation by allowing both ends to speak—and be heard—at the same time for conversations that are more true to life.
  • Backlit cordless handset keypad and display – The entire keypad illuminates along with the LCD screen, allowing for easier viewing in dim light.
  • ECO Mode power-conserving technology – Power-conserving technology manages consumption for optimal battery performance.
  • Quiet Mode – Silence the ringer on the handset and base unit immediately, or for an extended period of time.

Just to name a few… the biggest one for me is the full duplex speakerphone – you might be asking yourself what the heck is that? or I think I had a full duplex 28.8 modem back in the day… its the ability to talk into the phone and listen/hear the other person at the same time (you know, like you’re actually having a conversation with them) which is more than I can say for my iPhone sometimes.
