I bought this phone system for my home-based office, where I need a 2-line phone, which combines a corded base and cordless handsets.
I find it easy to use the various features and I like the look and feel of the whole system.
As noted by a previous reviewer, it was hard to get the base standby batteries ( 5 AAA ) to make contact to remove the " Replace Battery " message from the screen. However, I was able to do so after prying the battery metal contact prongs with a paper clip.
The standard 2 year manufacturer's warranty ( printed on the RCA website ) is a recent revision to the 1 year warranty printed in the owner's manual.
I'm very pleased and I hope my satisfaction continues.

Phone Revision Issue, BadSound Explained

This is a very nice phone with great features. I wanted the long record time (60 minutes!). BUT, there's an issue with compatibility with the expansion phones. The phone I have is model number 25255RE2-A. The "-A" is important! As it turns out, only handsets with the model number ending in "-A" work cleanly. Handset 25055RE1-A works great, great sound quality, no static. BUT, 25055RE1 without the -A is awful! Lots of dropouts from the remote side, so bad that I could barely make them out. Attempting to get an extension that worked, I ended up trying THREE of these without the "-A" and all sound terrible! All my phones WITH the "-A" work fine. Note there are also differences in the D-Pad functions between these two model numbers. WITH the -A, when the phone is idle, if I push the D-Pad down (down volume), it immediately rings the phone and allows you to set the ringer volume. Without the -A, it goes to a menu choice to let you choose this function (which I prefer). They also have different functionality for font selection when entering names in the directory, etc. BUT, worse of all, WITHOUT the -A, the directory functions don't work at all with the base unit! Trying to upload the directory, you get "unavailable". Trying to download the directory to the handset, you get the same thing. So an important piece of functionality is also missing.
I've tried 3 Staples locally to replace the handset and non have another -A, so it looks like I'm going to have to give up on this phone and get another model. Sadly, few have long record time, so I'll lose this feature. I went to RCA's website to see about getting assistance, and I found they don't even list this phone there, so its also already discontinued apparently. As such, I worry about getting handsets replaced or getting new ones, as I'd have to get the -A model. That brings up the last big issue, both versions have the EXACT SAME SKU so there's not much of a way to know before hand what you'd get. Sorry RCA, but that is a major blunder. And, it does explain why many report great sound quality, while other report terrible sound quality, it apparently depends on the revision of the base and handset you have...and to make them the same SKU, really bad.

Very clear

Comments about RCA 25255RE2 DECT 6.0 2-Line Corded/Cordless Telephone with Digital Answering System:

We bought this phone because we have two businesses we run from one address. This phone system made it extremely easy to be able to FINALLY do it without making sure we had cordless phones that wouldn't interfere with each other. We haven't bought a second cordless like we had originally planned because it's much easier to use than we thought. The only thing I would change is that when you program the phone numbers into the base phone that those would also be available on the cordless. That's the only downfall. I like that we set up a during business hours and after business hours voicemail separately for each phone number. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. Get it. You won't be disappointed.

Great for small biz

By The UPS Store guy

Comments about RCA 25255RE2 DECT 6.0 2-Line Corded/Cordless Telephone with Digital Answering System:

This phone system fits my business very well. I have a small business with a main line and a roll-over so it aptly handles my needs. The wireless funciton gives us flexibility to move around and the corded option with speaker is great for my anchor desk. I do not need the answering machine option because I have digital voice mail with my phone carrier, so that part is a total waste, but it's not a big deal that it'll never be used. The range on it is excellent. spans the size of my store and even goes through a brick wall to the outside.

Comments about RCA 25255RE2 DECT 6.0 2-Line Corded/Cordless Telephone with Digital Answering System:

The Panasonic System, although $30 more, was easier to program and had a much better display screen.

Not a Good Quality Telephone System

By Business Man

from Las Vegas, NV

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about RCA 25255RE2 DECT 6.0 2-Line Corded/Cordless Telephone with Digital Answering System:

I purchased this system base on it having the abiity to expand to 10 cordless hand-held remotes. The system is NOT GOOD, and I strongly recommend not purchasing it. The hand-held remotes regularly do not work, the sound quality is poor and the overall performance is mediocre. The system does offer a nice array of features, but the poor quality makes it a bad purchase choice!

Wish -do not disturb could automatic pm

Comments about RCA 25255RE2 DECT 6.0 2-Line Corded/Cordless Telephone with Digital Answering System:

Love everything about this except I was disappointed to find that you could not program it to turn to "do not disturb" automatically when the office is closed. I am not one to remember to push the do not disturb setting over and over every night.
