I really did not want a "cordless" phone/answering machine, but the corded set I bought (from WalMart) did not work at all - it would recognize that a call was coming in. Also, my wife didn't like the one from WalMart because, "It looks like it is for a senior."

We were using a very old (20 years?) separate answering machine (with one of those micro-casettes), a separate phone, and a separate caller ID box. My wife said it was all just too ugly.

This ATT wireless answering system is just perfect for us. It has all the features we had before, plus an extra phone. I didn't think that we would need or use the extra phone, but it is really nice to have, even if just "across the room" next to another chair in the den. Very convenient.

On the WalMart phone, the program was confusing and it had "time limits" that caused confusion. The ATT phone is a breeze to setup (and I'm 61 years old). After a few minutes (less than 5), I got the hang of "how to do it" and from there, setting up everything was almost intuitive.

While we have only been using it for ~3 weeks, so far, so good. The answering system works well. The audio on the handsets is clear, the "look back" to see who called, the speed dial, the directory, all work great. The backlighted keys are helpful in the dark, when watching TV with the lights out...makes using the phone a snap.

I thought I would dislike this phone, but I was completely wrong. I love it.

The only downside, which has NOTHING to do with the phone, is the problem I am having with Staples rebate program. This phone had a $20 rebate offer (Staples card) and I still have not been able to get resolution on it. I've done everything I should, including contacting their outsourced vendor, but still nothing. What a poor ending to a great phone.

I was very dissapointed that the directions for using the wall mount had to be obtained online and it took a while to figure out where on their site they were. Once installed, the mount sticks out about 3-4 inches under the phone and looks extremely awkward. It beeps every 50 seconds to say it is charging and there is no way that I have found to stop the loud noise, and it must charge approximately 16 hours before ready for use. This may have to go back.

Decent Phone...

Comments about AT&T EL52210 DECT 6.0 Cordless Telephone with Caller ID and Digital Answering System:

Good cordless phone and digital answering service. I've used it for over a year and it's been reliable. The battery life is good with moderate use, but doesn't last as long as previous cordless phones I've owned. There are no belt clips for the phones and you cannot access the messages left on the digital answering service. Also, over the last 2 months I've had problems hearing my callers and they were having problems hearing me where much of the sound was distorted on either end.

Comments about AT&T EL52210 DECT 6.0 Cordless Telephone with Caller ID and Digital Answering System:

Purchased this phone for our small office, can't walk from my office door to the bathroom 25ft away while in use. Or if I'm not right near the base, it will light up, but wont ring.
Have only had this phone for 4-months and the batteries are already dying. The phones will hang up on people or just wont allow you to answer. These are nice looking phones with good sound, but definitely intended for light use.

      Very easy to set up, simple plug in and ready to use. Easy to read the handset and love how bright it is lit up. Nice price for base and second phone. This will probably be my last home land line phone. It's sturdy and reliable so far. Reception is good inside the house and out. Walked down driveway to mailbox and got clear reception up and back.
